Eagle consciously alights
with spirit in the Tree of Life
In a state of grace
our prayers are complete,
In one gesture we arrive and release.
As we walk our living days
we trace symbols forever embedded
in the labyrinth of the human soul.
At the center stands the tree of life.
Here we are united with our selves,
our world, our universe.
All elements join
in the original source of creation.
The great tree is our portal,
past the thick cloak of protection,
past the interwoven web of life.
Solace resides in the inner sanctuary
and dreams are the gateway
to the sweetest, purest love.
In this unconflicted place
all paths converge--
as above, so below,
coming in, going out.
All terrible tragedies are transformed
to triumphs of spirit,
and the poetic play of light and shadow
ceases to have meaning.
We tend this vision
as carefully as we tend sacred fire.
Truth. Love. Bliss. Wisdom. Communion.
This is our flame
and it burns through our lives.
At the center of all being,
we are one with divine benevolence.
