In The Mystery

In The Mystery:
Contemplative Living in a Chaotic World
Volume VIII (158 pages)

Open this book to any page
Or read it front to back.
It’s the resonance you’re after,
However the words align.

To the seeker after freedom,
The student after truth,
The mystic after God –
Mine this work.
An insight, an echo of freedom,
A kernel of truth waits for your receipt.

Then seek solitude.
Quiet your mind.
The Source lies within the seeker.
There’s nothing else to find.


“In the Mystery arrived in the mail yesterday. It’s beautifully put together in every way—the photographs so tender, the words so sublime—and I look forward to visiting it often. Thank you for sharing it with me, and for remembering my birthday. I applaud the steadfastness of your effort in sensing these (prose) poems and channeling them onto the page so grace-fully. May they reach those who are ready to hear and resonate with them.”

“I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy.
I woke and I saw that life is all service.
I served and I saw that service is joy.”
