Poem by Mirabai (1498-1550)
“I remember how my mother would hold me. I would look up at her sometimes and see her weep.
I understand now what was happening.
Love so strong a force
it broke the
and she disappeared from everything for a blessed moment.
All actions have evolved from the taste of flight;
the hope of freedom
moves our cells and limbs.
Don’t forget Love;
it will bring all the madness you need to unfurl yourself across the universe.
What is the cage? What is freedom? What is Love that ‘brings all the madness you need to unfurl’?
What a journey ...this being human.
