Silence

By Beth Lewis


When you leave,
my longing swells
And so, with my hearts consent, I return to
Abide in Silence.
In Silence
I embrace my God
In Silence
I join with my Guru
In Silence
I touch my Awareness
my Heart, my Love, my Wisdom
and All are One
In Silence.
I am God!
I am Human!
I am God!
I am Human!
I dwell in the Eternal.
I dwell in the world.
I dwell in the Eternal.
I dwell in the world.
Eyes closed, eyes open
Eyes closed, eyes open.

In the Eternal Spaciousness
I am one with everything
Eyes closed,
I breathe in the Silence
I exhale into the Silence
no separation, no loss
no longing.

In the world
I am one of many players,
eyes open,
All speaking, all dancing,
All arranging, categorizing
Pushing, pulling, opening, closing, coming
Going.

Eyes closed,
I breathe in the Silence
I exhale into the Silence.

In the world,
eyes open,
I reach down into the well of my sweetness
and offer it, to you
My gift, my jewel
my love
to join, to embrace, to touch, to connect
to share;
a sunrise, a sunset,
a starry night,
a whisper of wind,
the beating drums,
the rooster’s crow.

when you leave
my longing swells
Eyes closed,
I breathe in the Silence
I exhale into the
Silence.
