Unlike a seed buried in the ground
that waits quietly in its darkness for nourishment
from the soil, the water, the warmth of the sun,
waiting for the life force within to stir -
The spirit on the Path reaches for Light
and heat and moisture,
for love and passion and joy and power.
When the spirit is energized it is undeniable.
it moves and flourishes and shifts
creating space for its new self on the planet
Shedding old layers and beliefs and traumas
it breathes outward into the universe
like incense to the heavens.
Soon it reaches critical mass and
in this space and time it can grow no more
and it expands and sheds another layer
and becomes Light itself.
