The Same River Twice

as form ascends to formlessness

so the formless descends into form

the way down is up, the way up is down

down the same river twice

~

universal mind breathing life

all beings open their eyes

all being is eyes opening

opening the same river twice

opening to a welcoming mystery

meeting as brothers and sisters

meeting as timeless immortals

meeting the same river twice

~

in this dance of being

we may lose our truth in seeking

we may lose ourselves in seeking

seeking the same river twice

a million and one distractions

and yet a single moment can bring

peerless liberation

the vision of unity

~

in the stillpoint of enlightenment

nothing remains the same

but certainly it hasn’t changed

it’s always been this way

in the stillpoint of enlightenment

there’s nothing left to find

there’s no one left to find it now

find the same river twice
