Are You Willing (poem) 

(This is another of Jeannine Keenan's beautiful mandalas.)

Are You Willing

The ascent to Joy
Is itself the transforming
Of fear into LOVE

Marina Gamble

Are you willing to ascend to this joy?
It will tear you, rend you,
shatter your limbs
and fling them
into the sky
like dry sticks of straw
caught on the wind.

At times you will think
you are drowning,
tossed in the furious ocean of longing,
at others,
that you are scorched
by unseen fires,
flare of passion.

Do you imagine you will
then remember who you are?
Why you began this journey?

Think well
before you enter this path.

Consider the price
of a single kiss.
