The Alchemy of Magnetism & Resonance

The ecstatic magnetism that unites lovers. The sweet resonance that unifies friends. The rapture of body and soul when these two are met in One.

Magnetism draws opposite energies together. Resonance draws similar energies together. Alchemy transpires when these converge.

The ferver of desire and bliss of contentment. The allure of the exotic and the comfort of the familiar.   The encounter with the Other, and the embrace of the Self.

Opposites attract.  Like attracts like unto itself.  Two contradictory truisms that are indeed both true.

Never Have I Held Her

night-lady

Never have I held her
never have I felt
the electricity
between our bodies excite
as auras encounter
then meld together
nor the press
of soft flesh
upon hard muscle
Never have I felt her
heartbeat drumming
upon the hollow
of my chest
and yet
the pulse of her heart
as a rhythm carried
in the ocean’s waves
reverberates
within me

My Upanishad

part2_photo3

Who will meet me here
in undimensioned space
where I am and am Not
where self divests itself
of itself
and identity has no meaning

here
there is neither love
nor desire
but only being
remains

though I may have held you close
intoxicated
by the fragrance
of the blossoms of your heart
the embrace releases
the one being we were
surrenders
melds
into the larger Self

this path
is not a path
of the heart
nor the body
but of pure consciousness

walk with me here
and we may once again
walk the path
of the heart
or the body

who is it
that can walk the many paths
of being
in a single journey
Rumi’s expansive field
is too small
