Live Freely

Peace, one and all…

Leave behind
your every fear of death.
Live freely
in the life you have been given.

Death is a fixed appointment,
it is true,
but as the blessed ones say
dealings with the Generous are not difficult.

Life will come to you
in each new moment
whether you rush towards it
or retreat from it in fear.

And, because each new moment
opens out into infinity,
joy and sorrow flow together in oneness,
as love dissolves every opposite.

Live freely,
come rain or fair weather;
perhaps the path to the Beloved’s door
lies just beyond the next corner.
