The Nature of Rebellion
Balancing resistance with flow
Rebellion intertwines with compliance
as the river buffets the boulders
each adapting to new ways of being
inherent in this natural
rhythm of life.
The Tale of Shiva and Shakti
With wisdom and meditations, conscious energy can flows.
Whether activity or not
such is the Shiva and Shakti of love
and the manifest
such are the stones and the sun
a thought or emotion, or not
one and the same
change, rooting changelessness
the dissolution of duality.
Hegel spoke of an unthinking love,
a dangerous passion, of a primitive form
true love cannot happen without meditations on love.
without conditions, a shared confidence
without idle gossiping
wearing only consciousness
and consciousness is everything
But in the world we wear a veil of phenomena
hiding that consciousness
which is love that can only be expressed through a release of energy.
We know this love when we are naked of the material world
of valuing, of conditioning
of forms, of patterns
of expressions of anger
and even of joy.
Love is the prana of all life
the kundalini snake
When the snake coils
tightly, in a knot, at the root
in ignorance, anger and hate.
In equanimity, our energies flows
creating, sustaining life.
