Naked Beholding

"Behold the lilies of the field, how they grow." ~Jesus
Jesus wants you to really look
at the wild poppy,
the lake, the mountain,
to see the gentle explosion
of your own wonder,
a torrent of sparkling pixels,
particles of bliss in the void.
Keep perception nameless.
Turn the ordinary
into the miraculous
with a pure naked beholding.
Enter the wilderness of breath
where subject and object
meet like lovers in a kiss,
and your Bodhisattva mind
is blue sky unclouded
by thoughts.
There is no world of things.
Take a walk in deep silence,
each step a healing gift
awakening the seeds.
