When you “die,” while still being alive, you’ll be free
To be nobody – that is, someone who’s totally in love with God.
This liberation occurs the moment
All the roles you’ve been straining to hold up to the world’s view
Fall of their own weight –
Including your name and identity.
Yet “you’ll” still remain, just as you’ve always been, isn’t that right?
When you “die” while still being alive, you’ll be free to travel straight to God –
And you’ll do it –
Really, where else would you go –
Everything I’m saying here applies to each and every moment in your life –
There’s really no distinction between before and after –
Only fewer distractions once you’ve arrived.
Listen, joy is joy,
God is God,
And you are you –
In all worlds.
Hear that distant singing? Listen carefully, it’s your own joy
Calling down to you.
