LO AND BEHOLD, YOU MIGHTY BRAVE SOUL

In POETRY by Martin Fernandez Cufre1 Comment

Lo and behold, you mighty brave soul!
This life is a multifaceted shining jewel,
hologram of unseen dimensions
made of the mystery that is molten light.

Everything appearing in experiential space
chos, dharma, phenomena, contents:
nondual light, supreme mystery
yet perceived as discrete nouns.

We say nose, wall, gold, partner,
money, bed, success, failure
yet all is light.

Liquid mutable light
with impermanent forms.

Lo and behold, then, where you place
your highest hope, your brightest dream,
for all will shake, all will be gone,
except the hologram that binds them all.

Light in your eyes,
sound in your ears,
life in your hands,
you are the vibration
that thinks, searches and finds.

You are life, you are death
you are the question, the answer
and where they make love.

Can you see yourself?
Can you see seeing?
Can you see?

Sensate the mystery
in the empty space
between each word,
between each thought,
between heartbeats
and any possible tone.

You are not “something”!
You are the sacred space
where anything shines through
as uncountable forms, names,
pleasures, pains, memories.

Regain your nature,
dance through light space!

Remember your true name,
the one that is uttered
in the tremulous vibration
of silence in the night.

I don’t know what I am, beyond a curious human with a life-long thirst for the ubiquitous mystery and awakened multidimensionality and desire for creative expression. My main amplificatory vector into this mystery is Dzogchen via Chogyal Namkhai Norbu, with great influence by Keith Dowman and other great teachers and visionaries of this dreamlike liquid matrix of light. I studied and dabbled in maybe too many things to mention, but to mention some: Hermetic Kabbalah, Zen Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism, Jungian and Gestalt Psychology, computers, music, poetry, dance, painting, philosophy, martial arts. I make my living through translation, recently developing an aspiration for Tibetan and assisting Keith Dowman in translating and publishing into Spanish (my Spanish rendering of Dowman’s translation of Longchenpa’s Treasury of the Dharmadhatu, “Espaciosidad”, has just been published through Amazon). I love fringe areas, gadgets, fire and cats. Which is probably more than enough. I was born in Argentina but recently have been residing and/or traveling in/through Mexico, USA, Russia, Italy, Tenerife and the world.
