One

Every new beginning: the candle flame.
The dharma blossom:
genesis, the circle, the sphere,
the sun, the arrow, the crown.
Everything connected; everything One:

one source, one cosmic order
but many ways within.
Many paths throughout: shifting,
crossing, doubling back.

To repeat something in exactly
the same way to get the same
result each time is a task
only a few are up to attempting.

Take up your challenges with faith–
cross, shift, double back, leave
sameness to those who can handle it–
Trust that what is cosmicĀ is also within you.

This way the candle never goes out.
