A shaking up

A shaking up          

I have come not to teach,
said my Lord, but to awaken.

O lovers!  The journey consists
not of lessons to learn

but of consequences to bear.
Not a mystery for the mind to solve

but a shaking up
for our souls to endure;

a rumbling, rough waking up
to just Who We really are.

Our minds incessantly crafting the dream,
heart seeds apparently must be sown

to stir and grow over time
beyond the mind, beyond illusion,

awakening us to the One Reality towards which
our Lord incessantly beckons His lovers.

O child of God, speculate on such things
only with the borrowed authority of faith.
