If You Love

If you Love being Alive,
Being Alive will Love you back.
This, at least, is my Experience,
And all that I may speak of

Not Loving, necessarily,
The ever-changing content of Life,
But Loving the unchanging Essential,
The fact of Being Alive.

Such Love will not put an end,
To the ebb and flow of sorrow and joy,
But will touch the experience of each,
Will touch the experience of Life.

Untouched by all that arises,
But Touching all that arises,
Love born of Loving…
And being Loved by…
The Mystery of Life that we are.
