But to Enter the Cave of our Heart!

( In memory of Shimon bar Yohai)


But to enter the cave of our heart

When we cannot withstand the world apart.

We see what it was truly meant to be,

Away from the tumult, we find the key.


It is within every you and me,

If we enter the inner world to see,

Riches and treasures that uncover

And remove the chaos to discover:


Music of the soul in epiphany

Between heaven and earth in symphony,

To the orchestra in its harmony

That lights inner being in unity.


How can we journey there while in this world?

When we practice, we keep ourselves unfurled.
