“Come Empty Handed” © Dorothy Hunt, 2007
Come empty-handed to the
dwelling place of your own heart,
not knowing what to expect,
not caring if you find an innocent child,
a roaring tiger, a vast emptiness
or the river of your drowning.
Not caring if you find nothing at all
or everything your heart’s desired.
Face where the mind cannot go,
the place beyond division or distinctions.
Even then, you will not see God.
You will discover the darkness of Unknowing,
before there was a mind to speak of God,
or truth, or freedom.
Yet in this infinite Mystery,
you will be God’s seeing,
And everywhere you look,
there you will be looking back at yourself.
