I want to let everyone know about the new book by my friend, Rafael Stoneman. It is a collection of poems written without artifice or doubt by a man with a guileless heart. Rafael’s hand is always extended in friendship. Take it! Advaita Heart is available here:
One of my favorites of this collection is:
You are a criminal because you broke
into my heart. You cornered me and
murdered the ‘my’.
You are a thief because you stole
my mind. You confronted me and
sabotaged my soul.
You are a liar because you promised I
would be enlightened. You made the
‘I’ dissolve and left only yourself.
You are a cheat because you stacked
the deck and preyed on my need to
gamble. You forced me to surrender
when I had no other choice.
You are a harlot because your lips
swore that I was your only love.
You made me fall mad for you and
find out I am not the only One!
