Could I become Love, filled like a honey pot over there on the counter to the left of the sink simply doing what it was made to do.
I've made artificial meaning out of things.
I've forced knowledge upon the often mysterious but ever available sensations of my body.
I've silenced warm fleshy messages with excess and deprivation.
I've kept the radio of my thoughts turned up loud to drown out what I feel.
Not because I was bad I simply thought being spiritual was something outside myself.
I thought God was something I reached for something detached disconnected, distant, contrived.
Today I ask, What if I let go of all that business and let my senses become the highest thing about me?
Could I follow the scent of what lights me up?
Could the quickening in my belly could be my evening news, telling me what's most important the sensations in my hands today's marquee greeting?
What if I let go of reading the stars and started reading my breath?
Let the pull of air through nostrils land me into the present moment which holds eternity in it?
What if the knowledge I gain from books is useless unless I also study the throbbing in my chest?
What if my breath filled chest blood filled heart pleasure filled skin are the most honest places I could ever look for truth?
I could tend to my pressing hesitations nurture my tender softness question my interpretations open myself up to pleasure.
Then maybe I could embody this vessel and let it be filled with Love.
Filled and refilled again and again. Hold love...taste Love...become love.
What if my purpose could be my existence? My body be my treasure chest holding both ancient mysteries and everything yet to come.
Could I become like that honey pot? The one sitting on my counter, to the left of the sink.
That ordinary pot of gold simply doing what it was made to do: bearing sweetness.
