Why Not Become The One?

5. 22.2022. An excerpt from Fr. Laurence Freeman OSB in “Spirit” in JESUS THE TEACHER WITHIN (London: Continuum, 2000), p. 186.

When there is no ego through which the truth has to pass, communication dilates into communion. 

After meditation:  Hafiz, “With That Moon Language” in LOVE POEMS FROM GOD: Sacred Voices from the East and West, ed. Daniel Ladinsky (New York: Penguin Compass, 2002), p. 175.



Admit something:

Everyone you see, you say to them, “love me.”

Of course you do not do this out loud, otherwise
someone would call the cops.

Still, though, think about this, this great pull in us to connect.

Why not become the one who lives with a
full moon in each eye that is
always saying,

with that sweet moon language,
what every other eye in
this world is
dying to
