|Be wildly devoted to someone|
Cherish every perception.
At the same time, forget about control.
Allow the Beloved to be itself
and to change.
Passion and compassion,
holding and letting go,
This ache in your heart is holy.
Accept it as the rise of intimacy
With life’s secret ways.
Devotion is the Divine streaming
From that place in you before time.
Love’s energy flows through your body,
Toward a body, and into eternity again.
Surrender to this current of devotion
And become one with the Body of Love.
~ The Vijnana Bhairava Tantra
The Vijnana Bhairava Tantra is a conversation between Devi, the Goddess Who Is the Creative Power of the Universe, and her lover Shiva, the Consciousness Who Permeates Everywhere. Devi dares Shiva to describe the practices for becoming at one with the sacred Reality. In reply, Shiva enumerates a hundred and twelve yogas. In Sutra 98 he gives a bhakti practice.
