Atop your crown, I looked upon your reach high up in the sky from where
I could admire the heavens, your mountains, glaciers and ice sentinels guarding your shores.
Through this contemplation I felt your immense power and your pure peace and tranquility
kept me away from all sounds. Time stopped for a long moment and only my heart beat reminded
me of reality. I was vibrating in sync with your compassion and our love grew beautifully.
But while in your arms I felt a breach within your soul, a far and desperate cry coming from
the void. I heard the faraway erosion of your heart, falling into the abyss to be eaten
slowly by your body becoming ocean. The subtle vibrations of your world touched my heart
and uplifted me. In this trance, I elevated my consciousness to see... you. I saw that within
your apparent peace lies a seed of chaos. Deep within your essence, I perceived that you are
slowly giving yourself death. When you offer yourself, your beauty and your outer calm as freely
as today, it initiates a chain reaction of destructive change within yourself. A paradox!?
When your storms of anger and your strong wind whips the rocky mountains, then spirals
down into the valleys, freezes everything within its reach and too often remove hope to those
who are lost in your midst; you are in fact nourishing yourself and keeping the world in order.
For uncounted heart beats have I experienced your sacrifice with amazement, gratitude
and will to keep on searching within myself for the meaning of this contrast... this teaching.
And so the law of rhythm showed once again that what is created always contains within itself the
seed of its own destruction. May we understand that what happens to our father sky and
to our mother nature, happens to us, as we are but the child of their love.
