The Whole Being Wagging
It's not enough to have arrived at a place of effortlessly arising Bliss.
It's not enough to feel yourself expanded as all that is.
It's not enough that others feel spiritual power emanating from you.
It's not enough to have a brilliant mind, and a tongue to match.
It's not enough for the binding sense of self-identity to have vanished.
None of these things, and many other wondrous things as well, are enough,
Grasping after love, adoration, power, and treasure.
The Greatness of a teacher is not in their spiritual power,
Greatness is the extent to which the vessel has been subsumed by Love,
I'm old, and weary of “selves” cloaked in spiritual glory.
What’s this? My puppy has appeared, ball in mouth,
May those who seek Love find a human Guide,
The Whole Being wagging.
