Lighter than a Feather
Freeing the flow of life energy through the path of the heart
The heart is a gift of the gods, beware of neglecting it— Amen-em-apt
Through the heart,
the mind and the body connect with the soul and spirit.
The god of Amen-em-apt will weigh your heart
on the scales of death, opposite Maat’s feather of truth.
Be light of heart, lighter than the feather
illuminate your heart to enter the after-life.
Balance the matrix / let life energy free flow.
When heavy and dull, the heart is burdened / atone and feather the heart.
Open the space of the heart / the vessel of the subtle mind
clearing for light of the Buddha-dharma.
Spiritual potential / human consciousness / receptor / conveyor
storing love where the yearning of consciousness is the absolute.
The root of a power / joy, love, compassion, equanimity
the foundational centre of mystical perception.
The following note was scribed on a page by a student in many years ago.
The Bancroft Archive, University of California, Berkeley.
What shall I be?
I have again & again
grown like grass
I have experienced seven hundred and seventy molds
I died from mineralogy
and became vegetable
and from vegetativeness I died
& became animal
I died from animality and became man.
Then why fear
disappearance thru death?
Next time I shall die
Bringing forth wings and feathers like angels
After that soaring
higher than angels
What you cannot imagine
I shall be that.
Seemingly simple is the prose and a sketch yet they can carry
a strength of the heart and soul far longer than we can know.
We write for the moment
and let the future, be.
Rumi-nation conveying spiritual rising
a floating lotus through the imagination.
Gifts of the embellished
bringing voice through words.
Carrying gifts of the heart through time and space
from each of us, to each of us.
