bhairava uvāca
ūrdhve prāno hy adho jīvo visargātmā paroccaret
āne bharanād bharitā sthitih

The One Who is Intimate to All Beings said,

Beloved, your questions require the answers that come
Through direct living experience.

The way of experience begins with a breath
Such as the breath you are breathing now.
Awakening into luminous reality
May dawn in the momentary throb
Between any two breaths.

The breath flows in and just as it turns
To flow out, there is a flash of pure joy —
Life is renewed. Awaken into that.

As the breath is released and flows out,
There is a pulse as it turns to flow in.
In that turn, you are empty.
Enter that emptiness as the source of all life.
