The Fast

The self fears rejection,
soul’s confrontation.
Desire for survival,
celebrating life
in perpetuity.
Mysterious unity,
nothing beside Oneness.

A mighty idea,
a frightening reality.
Perfect destiny,
losing identity.
Exploration.
Differentiation.

Dancing dualities
completing the journey,
when fasting affirms its purpose.
Beyond self and soul
and outer celebrations,
dwelling upon soul and spirit.
Celebrating realization,
rejoicing,
for priceless liberation.
