The Way of Transformation

Do you seek me, yet expect to
stay unchanged?  Do you look
for transformation and pray each
day for the seas to remain calm?
That is not the way.  If you stir
up cosmic energies, if you wake
the sleeping snake, you will pay
for your audacity. There will be
times of bliss and quiet,
but there will also be earthquakes,
tornadoes tidal waves that render
the old trail guides useless, even
in the high country.  Playing it
safe will only serve to frustrate
you who hunger for the truth.
Speak your choice clearly.  If you
choose to move ahead, stop at no
threat, hold no thread of nostalgia
or contentment.  Break free of the
obstacles that limit your strength.
I await you just outside the gates,
just beyond the territory where
you feel safe. The source of
all you seek is before you now
if only you can see it.
