Squaring the Circleby Georg Feuerstein
Original Language English
Bear your heart to the single-eyed sky
lest your thoughts should calcify
and your insights dry up summerwise.
Squaring the circle of your life,
joyously circumambulate the green tree
that stretches heavenward
and begets its wondrous fruit of remembrance.
Deny no one the solace of dreaming
and gently etch your kindness
into the weathered granite of all souls.
As you touch the antipodes
stretched out between forgotten pathways
and tomorrow's muted shadows,
you unhinge the drowsy self-repeating cosmos
and unbolt the portal of the ever-present Now.
