Night Meditation


As you fall asleep tonight,
truly fall
into the starry darkness
of your heart.
Play in the wave-nature
of silence.
Rise up, slide down
the moonbeam of each breath.
Be a hollow pearl.
In the ocean of Turiya
let your sail be filled
with the whisper of
So'ham, 'Goddess I Am.'
She who witnesses
the reverie
drifts through your clouds
like the moon.
Drift with her.
Drown in the foam
of worlds unborn, abyss
where birth and death
have not yet stirred
into ripples of time.
What finger of thought,
passing through the waters
of the void, could cleave
Tohu wa’Bohu,
the Formless from the Deep?
If you believe that the
Infinite is impersonal,
you haven't met Her yet.
The subtlest skill is surrender
because it happens
without you.
Now watch yourself
awaken, not one
moment old.
This is the only morning.
Who passes seamlessly
from dreams of night
to dreams of day
never sleeps.
