To Glow

A poem.


Like light in the sun

spilling out of the sun,

the spirit within

beams its way

through all our cracks

till our most treasured

walls come down.

The coming down

of those walls is the

blessing we crave

and resist.

The coming down of

those walls — so the light

of the soul like the light

of the sun can help the

world grow — this is

the call of calls.

This excerpt is from my book, The Way Under The Way: The Place of True Meeting (Sounds True, 2016).

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
