Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion or cultural system.
I am not from the Eastor the West, not out of the ocean or up from the ground,
not natural or ethereal, notcomposed of elements at all. I do not exist, am not an entity in this world or in the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any origin story. My place is placeless, a traceof the traceless.
Neither body or soul. I belong to the beloved, have seen the two worlds as one and that one call to and know, first, last, outer, inner,
only that breath breathing human being.
