there is none

Many have gone mad looking for a solid center,
but there is none.
We think of centering as only a continual narrowing
of focus until we touch the pearl
but in practice it is often a continual expansion
of focus until we become the ocean.

Our center is vast space, boundless awareness
indistinguishable from unconditional love.

Of course I play the fool when I dare allow
consciousness to describe itself!  Isn't that the birth
of the ego, the "I am this" that closed behind us
when we entered the body?

~ Stephen Levine

Beautiful words. Might we all be fortunate enough to love ourselves unconditionally and freely.

Mind-blowingly beautiful! Glad I found you here. Even though you're now nowhere to be found because you're everywhere.
