Squaring the Circle

by 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.
