There's a place where the Beloved's constant presence is recognized,
Though sequestered beyond ego-mind's ken.
It's where Reality and Illusion converge,
A point of contact between what is and what seems to be.
What brilliance could be there, unbearable to the unprepared,
Though tempered by a veil of mercy?
We intuit all this, even while overcome by a wandering mind,
As we sense the distillation of awakening's rare wine.
Note: Awakening's Treasure (see top of page) is available through today, December 16, at no cost at its Amazon Kindle catalog page.
