nothing is far away

nothing is ever far away
death, heartbreak, or disaster
even enlightenment
is nearer than you think

when you stop all this movement
for one moment
and pause long enough
for silence to arrive
you will feel
a great intimacy
with everything that is
with the tree and the desk
the dog and the rain
the end and the beginning
even your pain might become
an intimate friend

because all things are wrapped up
in the same existence
and everything is great friends
with everything else.
