I Am Right Here

Banter Versus 10-12



Elaborate Rituals and garish images

May be useful in meditation when your mind is

whirling with thoughts

Of sex, money, and power, wandering like an elephant

in heat.

Go ahead and use these tools, yet know, 

Beating drums and blaring trumpets

Cannot summon the One who is already present.


I am not a collection of incantations

Known only to experts.

I am not a ladder to be climbed,

A sequence for piercing energy centers in your body.

I am not to be found at the end of a long road.

I am right here.
