      INTO THE MYTHIC EMPTINESS      

 
how do i    
find      
and approach      
with calm clarity      
the sheer edge      
sum      
of my awareness      
of all i      
think      
and know      
all i sense      
and trust      
all i understand      
and dont      
of all i      
feel      
and believe in      
then once there      
standing at its  
precariously teetering     
precipice      
looking out      
without fear      
or doubt      
into an apparent      
void      
yet somehow sensing      
everything      
yes everything      
within its formless      
peace      
from whence    
up out of  
its cosmic silence      
arose the slightest        
breeze      
which in drifting        
by      
slid its sensuous      
unseen tail      
soft and sweet      
across the quick  
surprise  
of my startled      
face      
precariously teetering here      
out upon this  
abrupt      
sheer edge        
of me  
trying to get  
my once free  
soul  
unstuck again  
from  this vague  
timid sum      
of all    
i think      
i am  
yet not     
releasing in its  
freeing reliefs  
liberating      
gentle touch      
the sudden realization      
that even in        
such emptiness      
as this      
all possibility        
still truly exists      
as in that      
immeasurable moment      
came also      
hope and faith      
though a faith      
unlike religion      
but rather in
my innate intuition      
a core truth  
trait
i know      
trust      
and own      
implicitly      
in my gut      
alone      
along with confidence      
enough      
to help me      
take      
that first  big      
step      
out into      
the boundless depths      
of great uncertainty      
off the sheer      
steep edge      
of that still      
teetering precipice      
of all i      
thought i knew      
of all i        
sensed      
and trusted      
of all i      
didnt understand      
yet somehow did      
of all i        
felt      
and believed in      
now i choose        
while looking out      
into that apparent      
void      
without fear      
without doubt        
sensing everything        
yes everything      
within its formless      
peace      
to freely leap      
with open joy      
out into its      
mythic emptiness      
at last      
in hopes      
of finding something        
new      
within its endless      
possibilities        
which truly      
still exists      
beyond the this      
and that      
of everything        
yes everything      
that is so      
cleverly masked      
beyond our shallow      
grasp      
just as
it is       
within      
everything      
yes everything      
thats not
