“Up To The Mountain”

~ Solomon Burke

“Friend, hope for the Guest while you are alive./ Jump into experience while you are alive!/ Think...and think... while you are alive./ If you don’t break your ropes while you’re alive, do you think/ ghosts will do it after?/ The idea that the soul will join with the ecstatic/ just because the body is rotten- / that is all fantasy./ What is found now is found then./ If you find nothing now,/ you will simply end up with an apartment in the City/ of Death./ If you make love with the divine now, in the next life/ you will have the face of satisfied desire./ So plunge into the truth, find out who the Teacher is,/ Believe in the Great Sound!/ Kabir says this: When the Guest is being searched for,/ it is the intensity of the longing for the Guest that/ does all the work./ Look at me, and you will see a slave of that intensity.”
