The Aftermath – Part 1

After a glimpse of awakening, what then?
Some distort, distrust or try to ignore, perhaps fearful where it might lead.

Some roll up their sleeves putting mind's house in order.
Some write love poetry or sing songs of praise.

Some weep, some laugh, some only wish to serve.
Some look for spiritual teachers, some assume they are spiritual teachers.

Some start reading spiritual books.
There's no standard procedure in this uncharted territory.

Some take a rest, some welcome back the waking dreams of their dream world. Some anxiously seek more inner experiences.

Some are inspired to prepare the grounds of their garden, to cultivate heart and mind, the better to invite the Beloved's presence.
