Do You Really Want To Dance?


Play and dance,
or fight if you like,
wearing the mask
of race and gender,
party and religion,
tribe and nation;
but don't forget who
is behind the mask -
bliss without form.
Awareness is like
water in a moonlit net.
The mind gets entangled,
but not the Self.
One who
knows how to sing
is both He and She,
Dark and Bright,
Silence on Fire.
Night gives birth
to billions of suns
yet remains all-mothering
emptiness.
Do you really want to dance?
Then don't mistake
names and forms
for the whirling stillness
inside you.
