sitting amidst the snowflakes i no longer search for white wolfe i am impatient as the waxing moon striving toward brilliance i am as serene as the full moon drifting through still waters i am patient as the waning moon surrendering to darkness within the empty cave of my unbroken heart is freedom  beyond all justice and injustice da free white wolfe danses

Commentary:

The moment of stillness arrives when opposites are no longer experienced as opposing but rather as present within each other in non-dualistic wholeness. In stillness all movement of Mind (striving), Spirit (serene drifting), and Soul (surrendering to darkness) are held as one and unbroken in freedom. I’m reminded here of the words of Marguerite Porete: “Thought is no longer of worth to me, Nor work, nor speech. Love draws me so high (Thought is no longer of worth to me) With her divine gaze, That I have no intent. Thought is no longer of worth to me, Nor work, nor speech.” And of course, T.S.Eliot again: “At the still point of the turning world, there the dance is.”
