Chuck Surface ~ The Heart's desire



 It's so easy to forget,
With all this talk of “spirituality”,
All the many paths,
All the many teachers…

All this talk of the Ground of Being,
Of Consciousness,
Of Brahman,
Of Emptiness,
Of Shiva and Shakti,
Of ParamAtman…

Of God.

All this talk of,
Liberation and Bondage,
Knowledge and Ignorance,
Awakening and Enlightenment…

Of the best path, the greatest guru,
And the heartbreaking notion,
That doing this, and not doing that,
Will win the Heart of God.

Of purification,
And perfecting,
And attaining merit,
And karma…

So easy to forget, in all of this...
To lose our way…
In words, thoughts, and concepts,
And the many descriptions of "truth",

And to forget…

That our Heart's Desire,
Since the beginning of beginningless Time,
Has ever and always been…

To become Causless, Conditionless Love,
And for that Love to Shine, always,
In the locus of our Heart.

Blessing all we encounter along the way,
For no "reason" whatsoever,
It simply being the nature of Love to do so.

Love unearned, unmerited, unqualified,
Arising from, and as, the simple fact,
Of our Existence.
