the place of jewels

to the mind everything is separate

to the heart everything is one

you get to choose

where you place your allegiance

one road leads to suffering

the other to peace

but the path of the heart

demands a surrender of the defended self

and it will do anything, and say anything,

to maintain its idea of control

the path of the heart

invites you to let go the clench fist

and fall willingly into the unknownness

you may see your life flashing by

don’t clench

you may feel a terror of existential aloneness

don’t clench

the whole game may come to a crashing end

still don’t clench 

the path of the heart will eventually take you

to the cathedral of your soul

the place of jewels

home.
