the right spot (meditation poem)

The sense of difficulty is a primary resource
the feeling of easiness is a second good thing
these are ingredients   we balance to cook
these are pigments   we mix whenever we paint

at the center of your life   abides Shiv (Meher Baba)
if you don't find him   you're not looking in the right spot
search for him everywhere   discover him where you might
recognize him with difficulty   or with wonderful ease

is he king or vagabond?   I couldn't tell you for sure
if he's anywhere or nowhere   seems a dullard's inquiry
whereas sometimes he's as obvious as the objects on the table
he's at other times more hidden   than sweetness in salt
