Hoist The Sail
Hoist the sail of Longing, even in the doldrums,
No sail… no sailing.
Go to The River and touch the Waters,
No walk to the river… no drowning.
Rest, and fool the frenetic mind,
No Rest… no Dissolution and Bliss.
Surrender, quit struggling, quit fighting,
No Surrender… no Resolution.
Cease your endless wandering, out there,
No inward turning… no Heaven.
Relax the contracted focus of Attention,
No Inclusion… no Wholeness.
Feel yourself as the Field of Perception,
No screen… no Movie.
Find a place, thing, or Friend,
No allowing… no being Taken.
Cry out with your Whole Being…
No Longing… sand for dinner.
