“Centering” As A Continual Expansion

Many have gone mad looking for a solid center,
but there is none.We think of centering as only a continual narrowing
of focus until we touch the pearl
but in practice it is often a continual expansion
of focus until we become the ocean.Our center is vast space, boundless awareness
indistinguishable from unconditional love.Of course I play the fool when I dare allow
consciousness to describe itself! Isn’t that the birth
of the ego, the “I am this” that closed behind us
when we entered the body?
