You find yourself in a limitlessness space
Eternity stretches out before you on all sides.
Movement, desire, direction must come from inside,
from some still, small voice, hidden behind
the best intentions of parents, community
teachers, best friends and religious leaders.
Oh yes, and politicians, capitalists and activists.
The soul expands outward, seeking familiarity
and inward, in search of certainty, and stability.
It seems like forever, but distant shores
are at last seen and touched with
the new-grown tendrils of an immeasurably
powerful star being, planted and rooted
from that interior dimension
that we all have access to.
You just have to be still, and feel
how fast you are already moving;
your cells, your neurons and
the entire solar system--
And find, in that breakneck galactic pace,
the stillness that rides on its back,
serene, confident and suspended in
awareness of your own eternal purpose.
