Meditations on the Anahata Chakra

Meditations on the Anahata Chakra
6
 
inside the lotus
            of the heart
is a lotus
                        another lotus
   made of bliss
inside of it
            is the sun
            cupping
the moon
            cupping
            fire
            cupping
            radiance
            cupping
Self
Self sitting
            blissfully
   under the wish-fulfilling tree
            or
       beside
the wish-fulfilling cow
            or
you pick what you
imagine            can fulfill
            wishes
in this secret place
            in the cave of the heart
I mean the lotus sun moon fire of the heart
            a place the size of your thumb
or the size of everything
           
to find it you’ll need
time     a teacher
Keats’ negative capability
            grace
an old soul       a good seat
     a generous heart
 
don’t you think I’d tell you if I knew?
  you must, we must, just sit here
wait without waiting
as if in a lotus inside a lotus
as if wishing on a tree or cow
while breathing
keep breathing
   or hold your breath
and listen for the sound of a bell
            unstruck
or say without saying
            a seed sound magic spell
   yamyamyamyamyamyam
   yamyamyamyamyamyam
have a little patience
            or watch yourself
being impatient
or have a little faith
                        I don’t know
I think              don’t you?        that
    love
            must have
something
            to do with it
