The blind rolls up. Light enters
& shows us where we are.
Windows allow for no fooling.
What would it mean to realize
that every one of us is a window
where life shines through?
Could we stand to know how
every moment reveals this?
Anyone paying attention could see if we were open
or shut, spattered or clear?
A blind could not hide us-
we would only be revealed as covered.
No one would be fooled.
Could we trust that it is safe to be
Then we would be clear enough
for light to come through us naturally.
are we ever safe enough to practice transparency? can we find our shadow selves? can we notice how the light falls through our window? what becomes more clear?
At our birth we emerge from the root mystery of the cosmos, a deep & silent mystery into which we will one day be reabsorbed. Our own lives are a spiral pattern of creative unfolding into light. Fashioned out of the creative power of starlight & the fecund body of the Earth, we are the children of Earth & starry heaven caught up in the timeless rhythm of the celestial dance……David Fideler
