When You Awoke

When you awoke this morning,
how great was the distance between the worlds?
How far did you travel to remember yourself?
Did you venture to the center of the galaxy
to find your source of light?
Did the journey take a trillion light years,
a thousand lifetimes,
or one breath,
the distance from your forehead to your chest?
You are the Shift that has already happened.
All other distances arise from rims and spirals
in your own glorious body,
where you align seven planets of longing
with the sun in your heart,
and the heart of the void within that.
Go deeper, not farther.
Love sinks.
Have the courage to be groundless.
All spheres of whirling begin here
where with a single breath
you turn these burning cinders
to pearl.
