So that we should begin to ask
Learn to ask the right questions.
Why is not sophisticated;
it opens gates to roads that lead
Why belongs to G-d when we come before Her throne –
shriven of our illusion-clothes
and whisper “I have always loved you –only you”
with utter transparency.
Maybe you ask yourself if you have enough cracks.
The cracks are where the light
begins to seep in,
and what lies between them
creates all the barriers that keep us
from knowing with the fullness
of our completeness-everything
that love that holds the Universe together
through the lie of separation.
Do not assume the one who does not know
how to ask is mute from ineptitude.
That child exists in all of us
and only by embracing them
in the full stillness of the hour of change
can we arrive at the place of chaos
from which all creation occurs.
We have trained ourselves to un-know
and to live in danger,
and that blunts our teeth on the sharpness
of questions that do nothing but harden our hearts.
What would it take
for you to give up your silent rebellion,
put down the stories you’ve made
into the forces that control you life
and learn to ask a new question?
