Each step is a step into
the unknown.

    Each step is a step into the unknown,
    consciously forgetting all known,
    consciously releasing all fears,
    and all conditioning patterns,
    make space for the unknown.

    Unique journey for everyone…


    A beautiful, lately written poem
    from Dorothy Walters.


    I do not know
    if this is
    an ending
    or a beginning,
    a sunset or a sunrise,
    or just a dream that started
    some time ago, unknown,
    unsequenced, unexplained.

    Already the present
    is fading,
    I am ceasing to
    care about things
    deemed so important
    hurrying to let go,
    dispose of the tangibles,
    the connections.

    Once more standing
    on the cliff’s edge,
    poised to hurl over
    into vastness,
    undelineated, unknown.

    The trapeze artist
    swings into space
    not knowing if the
    next hold
    will be waiting
    or not,
    or is merely a delusion.
    a hazy beckoning
    to lure you into
    undefined space.

    Yet he lets go,
    traces the arc of air,
    grips the bar in time,
    knows it is always there.
