The seer touches the inside of the soul
holding it in their vision,
a knowing that penetrates with a secret desire:
sometimes to change
sometimes to shock or entertain
perhaps to hurt
- yes, anger can be here
But the child within is all "Maitri"
friendliness to self & others.
having been stepped on and shut away by the world,
this little voice has a big message
one that can reshape violent tendencies
into acts of liberation
The seer in their Truth expands vision beyond what is,
untying the here and now
from the disliberating remembering of a yesterday presently imagined,
loosening the tether that strangles the newness of existence
and informing it with a richness of real Knowing
Their gift is to see not what is
but its potential.
Holding not one's personal desire
built from collective tragedy,
but holding the thing we all still dream secretly together
despite a world gone mad
What is held is a heart that beats so quietly
most have forgotten to hear it.
It weaves our personal and cosmic histories
in a different way than our unimaginative memories, and one-track minds
using a redeeming compassion as deep & as old as this universe
as its simple thread
When the seer's vision comes from this place
All are opened to the potential of a transformative Truth
which is found in the most unlikely of places.
As kernels sitting quietly amongst the messiness of life,
we may learn with a new joy
that by applying that heat of this True vision
we just may POP!
Under the loving warmth of this eye
not even our misunderstanding fear, bitter anger, cold control or deluded desires
will be able to contain us into small, limiting, unripened shapes,
an explosion into the wild lovers of the universe
we were always meant to be.
