The Calling by Mirabai Starr (excerpts)
Inspired by Teresa of Avila Interior Castle
This magnificent refuge is inside you.
Shatter the darkness that shrouds the doorway.
The One you love is calling.
His call is flute music.
Be brave, and walk through the country of your own wild heart.
Be gentle, and know that you know nothing.
This is your rightful place.
That is your Beloved reclining in the inner-most chamber, waiting for you. Offering wine from a bottle with your crest on the label.
The path home to your true love unobstructed after all.
Know that the Beloved has chosen as His dwelling place, the core of your own being.
For that is the single, most beautiful place in all creation.
Waste no time.
Enter the center of your soul.
