they will never harm another, and they will come to find
they hold everything you want.
lift anything to your
mouth that might wound your precious land –
that sacred earth that is your body.
the power that made the universe will enter your sinew
from a source not outside your limbs, but from a holy realm
that lives in us.
When the moment cracks open, ecstasy leaps out and devours space;
love goes mad with the blessings, like my words give.
The mind that tries to shape tomorrow beyond its capacities
will find no rest.
Forget any sounds or touch you knew that did not help you dance.
You will come to see that all evolves us.
(Love Poems From God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West by Daniel Ladinsky)
