the invisible world

the invisible world
is the world of qualities
a world that is full
poorna, the ancients said

i was there last evening
in the forest
it blessed my being

a rain of blessings
drenched my soul
cleansed it
of all its isolation
of all its distractions
of all its fear

there was only love
love for the beings of the forest
for the dogs
that come for food and affection
for the cat with the injured tail
for the birds that enliven our space
for the trees that continually bless us

पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात पूर्णमुदच्च्यते
पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवा वशिष्यते

– बृहदारण्यक उपनिषद् 5.1.1

that is full, this is full
from fullness, fullness arises

when fullness leaves fullness
fullness alone remains

– brihadaranyaka upanishad 5.1.1
