The Non-Dual Matthew: 9:14-15

9:14-15

“The disciples of John came to him saying, ‘Why do we and the Pharisees fast but your disciples do not fast?’ And Jesus said to them, ‘Can the wedding guest mourn as long as the bridgegroom is with them?  The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them and then they will fast.’”

Absence
is what we try to fill—
the religious toolbelt
useful
when we feel that aching aloneness
in our bones.

But when our eyes open
and with wholeness
we sit in the midst
of all our empty masks,
how round and full our bellies then,
no need to turn aside in sackcloth
and ashes
for we
see and are seen,
fill others and are full--
the nurturing intimacy

of a unified one.
