To The Bone


Something just melted in the story of me.
Like a warm balm, the softness spread
over muscles and bone and fascia,

Whispering, "It's okay, it's okay..."

The mantle of knowing slipping
off shoulders, the sweet relief
of no judgement, no opinion, no idea.

What is good or wrong?
I cannot say, not even for "me,"

And this is the deep solace of emptiness,
Full of tender sigh, deep breath,
grateful tear.

I cannot know,
I cannot know.

And the gratitude explodes silently again...

There is deep resonance and relaxation here with your words of the "mantle of knowing slipping off and the sweet relief of not knowing" - and not needing to know...anything. Letting it all fall away and just being...

Thank you for this warm balm that touches the Heart...

Orion said...

I had been formulating a question for you about good and wrong - I guess it is moot now...

Mary said...

Hi Orion,

Maybe it is, maybe it isn't ;-) Thanks for visiting!

Love,

You should write a book Mary, if you havn't already. There is a freshness and a directness in these written expressions, that reaches the parts that other very wise and respected writers fail to do. Your words never fail to help me, even though i do not exist. I would love to have them in a book beside my bed.just to wash away other confusing ideas.

Thank you for your generosity in sharing this.xx

Mary said...

Hi Julian,
Thank you so much for the kind comment, I'm touched. So glad that something resonates. If any book gets written, I'll be sure and let you know :-)

Much love,
Mary

I agree, your poetic expressions would make a great book of non dual thought. I expect it will be so.

The alphabet fell out of my head. Some letters landed in my heart to spell the words:

I Love You!

Wow, I love that, Jim! Really made me smile :-)) Thank you.

Dear Mary,

This one makes my reality melted and moist, soft-pulsing, liquid life. Healing and treating at the same time, chocolate liqueur, glass of wine, but a hundred per cent goodness for the body, as well as a pleasure, yet drawing the curtain back beyond good.

In the the purr of your pen, the timeless vortex beats and quivers...

Love,

"Aries"

Mary said...

Thank you for sharing ;-)


Love,
Mary
