It’s All in the Giveaway
Stripped bare of all artifice, this man
stands naked, an eagle praying amongst
the autumn woods. Ears tuned to the crunch
of leaves or snap of twig, eyes swivel to the right
and left- keenly aware of everything in this present
moment. For, as much as I can, I have set aside
that part which wants to shout me. The remainder
is the one whose very essence rests in the heat
of the grandfather rocks, burning themselves away,
all for the grace of service. Imagine what will happen
when you and I set aside any thought of self, when
we simply surrender to the precious act of being-
a holy place where we land in the sweet spot of redemption,
discovering anew- that it’s all in the giveaway.
As an Ecstatic Poet, my aim is to awaken in you, the part of you that knows the truth of your being, the beauty of your soul.
