What I yearn for cannot be expressed

It is dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly… There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That is why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling… (Aldous Huxley, Island)

How silence shines into us –

When mind becomes stone

Freed from thought

Hovering lightly

In a state of choiceless awareness

How solitude shimmers in the soul –

When the unsuspected treasure of harmony

Becomes its own eternity

In unfathomable love

Measureless supreme real complete

How the secret of the whole universe

Concedes me only an allusion -

In bright and brief flashes of lightning

‘To walk so lightly lightly child’

What I yearn for cannot be expressed

In darkness

The final breath beguiled

By beauty wonder delight

She smiled
