When Something in Nature Reveals All*

We often talk
long through the night
of mistaking our selves
as things that endure

and how quickly
we forget that we’re
creatures using narrative 
to get on in this world.

Let’s recall this story:

To love 
everything everywhere
is the mission

To love
everything everywhere 
means, “Forget your self

To love
everything everywhere
all at once and forever is to be God

Not like.
Not as.

To be.
We Are
We Are.

So, let’s sit together
through this long night
and come morning we’ll see 
what the sunlight brings.

* “A rare experience of a moment at daybreak, when something in nature seems to reveal all consciousness, cannot be explained at noon. Yet it is part of the day’s unity.”

– Charles Ives, https://charlesives.org
