Do not fear the fire in your belly:
That shaft of flame rising
or the burning tongues on your head,
leaping, tickling;
It is the shakti that stirs –
the paraclete.
Who wakens the sleeping spirit
and warms the chakras?
Is that the chi I see
now snaking up like bolt of energy?
Where is my God in all of this?

He waits inside in secret.
