(Art Poem) Behold by Shiloh Sophia

Art by Shiloh Sophia

Today
Walk to the edge of yourself
See a door you have never seen before.
Don’t knock.
Don’t ask if anyone is home.
Just behold: Access.
Then without further consideration,
Dive in.
Once inside ask:
Who lives in here?
If it is silent,
Enjoy the strange break from all the voices,
for once they may not know what to say.
If it is filled with suggestions and tirades
kindly ask again.
Who lives in here?
(This is sacred space.)
It isn’t about the answer of course.
This is about what happens in the act
of asking in earnest, about the real you.
Something not enough of us really do.
Your cooling sack of stardust is inhabited
but by who?
Not knowing what to do
or who to be next
is something we all experience.
Sometimes revelation visits this space.
Pay attention when that happens.
The important thing to know is:
There are many doorways
and you have access.
Go on in.
Today
walk to the edge of yourself
See a door you have never seen before.
Dive in. Behold, and ask
Who lives in here?
