just tend to the essence


Sometimes it’s just one sentence.


During my last meditation retreat it was this sentence:


it’s all right

just tend to the essence, Louis


And I guess that’s that.


But then, something grew out of that sentence, that essence.


That something is this:




Just tend to the essence


It’s all right

just tend to the essence.


Tending to the essence

all else grows from ((((and with)))) it


and so

essence finds form


it is the first

it will be the last

but it is here now

unpredictable

and precious



It teaches us,

our narrow minds,

to let go


forget about it


no need to shape

no need to mold

no way to shape

no way to mold


just tend to the essence

and get out of the way


observe

follow

enjoy

all that is flowing forth from essence


and know yourself to be part of the unique wonder

of true creation

Or,

as William Blake said:

Eternity is in love with the creations of time


Why not, then, as creations of time, infused with and born from eternity, fall in love again with our eternal counterpart?
