Essential Direction

This small world cast
through timeless void.
Moment into moment
reforms anew.   Each
discrete act,
each emotive scene,
each random reverie,
all that sustains, creates
each self-organizing system
trophically moving
according to values and valence.
If we are to be
thrust into chaos,
madly stringing
experience into meaning,
hoping some magic decoder
falls into our hands,
throws elusive pieces
into clear relief,
well-ordered display,
the plan most likely to succeed
leads from the center.
Breathing, holding, cradling
sacred fire, inspiration,
deep well of 
vibrant expression.
To touch essence, gently,
strongly, reverently
bring forth its ecstatic vision.
The map is not the territory.
Follow from root
to place of radiant flowering.
The true mission of the seed
is to bear fruit
in kind.
