I must Follow my own Lights

I must follow my own lights

dancing inside me

orbs of light


leading me onward


I am in new territory now


advancing out to the open sea


I let go of the shore

it recedes as the gentle waves, followed by more tumultuous ones

buffet me around


but a steadiness


a knowing

keeps me


going

a certainty not based


on mind


on elusive thought which


move hither and yon


but a deeper-than-mind

momentum


and with each plummeting down toward

this recognition of

and abidance in


pure awareness


fear loosens its grip


fearlessness emerges


exaltation in the unknown is revealed


freedom

freedom

freedom



I must follow my own lights
