Grace has burned me
Alive so many times, walking fire
Seems
As tedious as tears
Lovers with no hearts, all fears
So off with their heads.
A spear
Tore up my spine
And the flower that crowned it
Gave birth to a golden god.
Serpent twins, a man with wings
And so many curious things
All that remains
Beloved
“Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It's seeing through the facade of pretence. It's the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.” ― Adyashanti

“Love is a flame that burns everything other than itself. It is the destruction of all that is false and the fulfillment of all that is true.”
― Adyashanti
