Embracing the unembraceable...

hugging hitlerI've felt for quite a time now to write a book called Hugging Hitler - or something like that (whether it'll ever come into being or not, I don't know - I've got three or four other books to finish before I can even begin!) Sounds radical, I know, but in many respects, that is what life's been about for me. It's been about finding a space within where we can embrace the unembraceable, forgive the unforgivable... melting through it all with the energies of the heart. In that space, for me, everything transforms (and when the inner world softens around something, the outer world, I find, often adjusts itself to meet it). Here's a poem I wrote a while ago that seems to fit this theme:I am a warrior of loveMy weapon is tendernessMy shield is perfect surrenderWith my sword I melt through injusticeBring peace and goodwillIn the face of all horrorsI simply let goWalking forward, IMelt into the truth and beauty of my own heartAnd the world transforms around meMy battle is melting heartsAnd my home is HeavenRight here on Earth.I walk forward in TruthAnd whole armiesCollapseFall about laughingIntoxicated with the taste of divinityAnd between sworn enemiesFlowers bloom.For what is there to fight, now?We're melting into the innocence that we are.~ ~
