This is how I begin

This is how I begin
to sort myself out.

This is how I begin
to touch the world
beyond my grasping
expectations
that I should know,
that now should
be forever

Expanding outward
Defying gravity
Defiance has its place -
gravity affirms it.

How to understand time?
Am I in time?
Am I out of time?
Is it best not to know
or just be unaware?

Where is my awareness
of truth?
Where is my knowing
held safest, deepest?
And what are the
circumstances
under which it can
emerge?

To this I know the answer:
When I have no fear -
no fear of being observed
by me or others.
No fear of being hurt
by me or others.

No fear of death
of me or others.
No fear of change
but the embrace of
change, going along for the ride
with change.
