Let Her In
Let the Mother wash away
all your small dreams of transcendence.
Rest into the discomfort of incompleteness,
the imperfection of this mundane world.
Of our ordinary life
with its ordinary pains and it’s ordinary joys.
There is no escape from this condition.
Nothing will ever fulfill you.
Feel the hopelessness from which truth sprouts.
The blessed poverty that redeems.
Offer it all up to God.
Nothing less passes through the eye of the Needle.
And She can’t use you until you do.
Not manifest this or that.
Your dreams of power.
Give up your gain.
Die to all you cleave.
Give way, give in, consent to Her will.
There is no security.
No bargain you can make.
Let God have you utterly, utterly.
Let it be a bloody mess.
This is the mystery school.
The face of the Black Madonna.
Let life have you.
Strip you to the bone
until the dark radiance of the soul is all you hallow.
You will loose everything.
Let it bring you lower, through the wound,
heart to ground
till you are enthroned in the Queendom of Heaven everywhere.
You are already all you seek.
Let’s grow up.
There is nowhere to run from this moment.
