‘When we are upside down we are dancing,’
Proclaimed the Tibetan monk under a blanket of giggles.
When life knocks you sideways and you veer off your path,
When your sparring with life gets you knocked out in the second half,
Invite it in.
Pull up a chair and acquaint yourself,
Listen like a deer in the depths of darkness,
Watch like a hawk above the intricacy of land,
In the fullness of life you have found emptiness,
In having everything something eludes you,
In happiness you have found sadness,
In pleasure you have found pain,
Yet you still strive to avoid dis-ease,
When does sanity become insane?
You will grow, flourish and surpass your expectations,
You will enter the abyss and discover the depth of your being,
You will embrace the joy that resides in your heart,
You will uncover the truth behind Earth’s most magnificent show,
You will grace the stage and dance, because now … you know.
You are it.
