Cancer New Moon Solar Eclipse, July 1, 2011
A story is like the water you heat for your bath.
It takes messages between the fire and your skin.
It lets them meet and it cleans you!
Very few can sit down in the middle of the fire itself,
Like a salamander or Abraham. We need intermediaries.
A feeling of fullness comes, but usually it takes some bread to bring it.
Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it.
The body itself is a screen to shield and partially reveal
the light that's blazing inside your presence.
Water, stories, the body, all the things we do,
Are mediums that hide and show what's hidden.
Study them, and enjoy this being washed with a secret
We sometimes know, and then not. Rumi
