There comes a time in every life
Where, all at once, you arrive.
You stand at the vacant threshold
of your Being, on the doorstep
of an abandoned Truth — no steps
left to climb, no remnant journey
from there to here.
The arrival itself constellates
lifetimes, collapses every mortal
breath you have ever taken into the black hole
of this Precious Crossing.
Notice the door that greets you,
wide open, and beyond, a shimmering
void at once terrifying and irresistible.
This moment is that Crossing to the place
of your Being, the place where Miracles live.
Few will dare to cross, forgetfulness
a comfort of the dream of you.
Yet, this is the Crossing for which
you were born.
Will you come in?
I have been waiting an Eternity
to meet you.
