Maelstrom

The Maelstrom whips around
Fueled by past and future
In this it Gathers strength

Consciousness Dragged down
Helpless against the power.
The vortex lulls the mind to sleep.

Centered in the eternal the essence immobile
The light of awareness that breaks duplicity
Ever at rapture in the center of the circle
Find this gem beyond the veil


The endless war
Worsened by struggle
The quicksand of unconscious thought


Friction created
By resistance of this moment
Clouds the crystal sight

It can not be controlled, the clinging is futile
The mana turned to worms if horded
There is only this infinite moment
Receive the gift of clarity

No idea why or how we got here
No idea who we are
No idea if this is all there is

Stumbling around throughout this life
A blur of experience
Until the moment that we die

what if we glimpse our ultimate form
what if there lies a stillness in the whirl
If all the mental movement stops what is seen?
What if our body holds the key?

Retreat to this present space
In the here and the now
Place your awareness within your flesh and blood

The Tides of thought
cast you asunder
No peace amidst the violent storm

Currents rip you down
To fight them is failure
There must be another way


Surrendered as the watcher
Upon your foundation
The only act that calms the violent mental seas
Be not the doer but only the observer
Watch the tempest blow itself away

Again and again the battle is fought
Within each conquest you claim its strength.
