sometimes and often...a student will arrive who is dying of Spirit
and for days and months
the Mother guide of loving kindness channels the breath of Great Spirit
into this fragile being
so as to keep it buoyant
upon its own sea of breath.
slowly the life returns
is again created of the light and darkness.
many times and often,
in order for the darkness to be understood and integrated
it is thrown onto Mother guide
so that she becomes the canvas to be projected upon.
This is the greatest gift of the archetype Mother guide...
to be steady
holding the canvas upon which great destructive fire
As Mother guide continues to rest in loving kindness
oft times burned. criticized and hated
clarity may arrive into the process of projection.
for indeed the criticism, disdain and loathing is that of the small bird
afraid to fly with her great wings.
as Mother guide stays
to deeply love as defiance of the breathless bird.
Mother guide is one who is graced
with the singed edges of many burns
glowing in the real world
as dissolving illusion.
It must be
as it is.
