In the beginning was light
curved into a circle with white bright
rainbows glistening mandalas.
Even the shadows silver gleam
with pearled moonbeams.
There’s finally nothing
to fear in the Here After.
Death isn’t ominous once you’re dead.
Nothing is scarier than the strife of earth school.
They said you’re brave to want to go
to the trickster howler rodeo
knife fight for your life show.
We’re all proud of you
what would we do without you?
You carry the hope
your baby heart
in pure beginner’s mind.
It glides with wonder
and flirts with luck
prize and guide.
Don’t ever forget in doomed amnesia
how much you’re loved by all of us.
We’re rooting for you invisibly
cheering you on silently
as you escape death traps and hunger
We’re crying for your losses
waiting endlessly to celebrate your return
to formlessness again
to you in the we of us.
You’ve tried your best and
that’s more than great enough.
For at least a few aeons rest your laurels
to remember what you’re made of
A few thousand years is like a second
in the astral there’s nothing to fear
Fear lives here on Maya
in the land of mirrored illusions.
We’re all old and new friends here
