I — who am I?
I am no one
I can be anyone
________

I am Kuntuzangpo, who cannot be seen by looking
I am the melody that cannot be heard by listening
I am the truth that cannot be learned by grasping
I am the energy that cannot be stopped by blocking

Do you know me?
I am no one
________

I am the space between thoughts
I am the joy between painful moments
I am the confidence between fears
I am the peace between wars

Do you know me?
I can be anyone
________

I am the light that sees the darkness
I am the ear of compassion that hears suffering
I am the warmth of the heart that generates joy
I am the power of mind that benefits others

Do you know me?
I am no one
________

I am the source of everything
I am the expanse of the boundless sky
I am the radiant light that is everywhere
I am the wind that grants life force
I am the fire that enlivens the body

Do you know me?
I can be anyone
________

I am the refuge that abides within you
I am the value that spontaneously manifests
I am the energy that arises naturally and ceaselessly
I am the activity that compassionately benefits others

Do you know me?
I am no one
________

I am the mother who loves
I am the friend who can be trusted
I am the power that protects from enemies

Do you know me?
I can be anyone
________

I am home for you who are homeless

I am power for you who are weak
I am wealth for you who are poor

I am the mirror where you see yourself.

Do you know me?
_______

I — who am I?
I am no one
I can be anyone

Poems, Quotes: Intimacy

 

Connubial

Because with alarming accuracy
she’d been identifying patterns
I was unaware of-this tic, that
tendency, like the way I’ve mastered
the language of intimacy
in order to conceal how I felt-

I knew I was in danger
of being terribly understood.

–    Stephen Dunn


With callused hands

i tasted
the softness of the moon

in the coldest winds
i discovered
my soul’s
warmest fireplace

in the roughness
of his stubble
the tenderest love.

 –   Sanober Khan, A Thousand Flamingos


Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone – and finding that that’s ok with them. – Alain de Botton

I wonder if this is how people always get close: They heal each other’s wounds; they repair the broken skin. – Lauren Oliver, Pandemonium

My willingness to be intimate with my own deep feelings creates the space for intimacy with another. – Shakti Gawain, picked from The 50 Best Quotes on Self-Love at Psyhology Today

Being apart was wrong. Simply lying side by side did more for a relationship than words. A warm bed, a nest of animal intimacy. Words could be misunderstood, whereas loving companionship bred trust. – Michel Faber, The Book of Strange New Things

Intimacy is not purely physical. It’s the act of connecting with someone so deeply; you feel like you can see into their soul. – Reshall Varsos

Poem and Article: Shifting

 

Never believe,
my friend,
when you´re
down there,
how the
world looks
like then.

Your energy
opens up
and you see
clearly again.

Lightness
never
truly
goes
away.
It remains
there
for you
to reclaim.

As is
with
magic,
it continues
to hold
you near.

Poem, Articles: Affectionate Pearls II


In an ancient
Egyptian time
but in your
current
appearance,
you give
me the
pearl necklace.

There is
a new
nuance
in this
meditation
that cannot
be described,
and a
most delicate
energy
surrounds
the third
eye.

– They lasted
through time,
my guide
confirms
afterward
what had
been
shown.
Yes,
of course,
they already
used pearls
in the ancient
times,
I never
thought
about it.

I perform a
quick search
for articles to
prove that to
my concrete
mind.

My intuitive
affinity
to pearls
got specified,
my larger self
and little self
unified.

Poem: Wild Geese by Mary Oliver

 

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

– Mary Oliver

Poem: Soft Companion

 

soft
words
drop
from the
heavens
like
tender
snow flakes

encouraging,
lifting,
supporting

Never
tired
of repeating
that what
is meant
to be

understanding
humanness
blissful
energy
wraps around
the body

transforms
worry
into smiles

Poem: New Year´s Sparkler

Behind
a flash
of a sparkler
a symmetric
light pattern
appears,

like there is
a flash

of intuition,

that is
invisibly
derived
from the
harmonious
whole,

like a spark
in the open
heart
that naturally
connects
with magic
and miracles,
flow and
synchronicity,

transferred
to the new
year,
alignment
with the
soul

Poem: A Pearl Necklace I

At a flea market
a pearl necklace

pulled her
close.
Why is
that,
she didn´t
quite
know.

Plastic
light green
pearls
can hold
such an
energy,
she smiled.

These
are mine,
perhaps
this is
a cellular
reminder.
No need
to further
analyze.

And she
held
that yin
close
every
night
while
the
hardness
moved by.

Poem: Cosmic Millionaires

 

Those who
have
dug
deep,
may never
be able to
explain
where
they´ve
been.

And
there is
no need to,
their own
souls
know,
and that´s
enough.

And not
everything
needs to
be understood,
there are
space giving
people
as such.

Everybody
is doing
their
thing
to the
best of
their
current
ability.

To be
understood
by a
glimpse
is then a gift
like being
a cosmic
millionaire.

Basically
that´s what
we all are.
