Poem for the episode - The Chrysanthemum Field 

The Chrysanthemum Field

By Scott Bryant-Comstock


The season of color is upon us.

Explosions of yellow, orange, red, purple,

white, and pink.

A densely woven fabric of wonder with lines of

green in between,

such as the joy and the splendor of the

chrysanthemum field.

God's intoxicating reminder that our love is real.


Can you see it?

Can you feel it?

Can you hear the sound of love

as the breeze whispers through the stems close

to the ground? 


Come nearer, where it's clearer,

where the earth meets the sky.

There, right there.

Can you feel me now?

Close to your side? 


The slow caress of your palm across the ground.

The freshly tilled soil resisting,

but giving way to the rhythmic pattern of your hand,

gliding round and round. 


The stubble on my chin from thousands of miles away,

begins to ever so slightly sway as if to say,

you are here with me.

Yes, it's real.

We are lying together in the chrysanthemum field.


Your hand slowly travels from ground to stem,

imagining the journey within,

that birthed the bloom at the end.

A glorious expression of all that went in

to the creation of this most perfect specimen,

tracing the journey from seed to flower,

surrendering yourself to the chrysanthemum's

intoxicating power.


I feel the touch of your hand on my knee,

tracing the scar that defines me,

that is only for you to see, 


hand on scar from a distance so far.

An unspoken act performed countless times

that reminds me without words,

we will be okay, we are here to stay.


Our scars continue to heal,

as we lie together in the chrysanthemum field.


You rise above the blooms,

where the sun dances with the moon.

The aura of colors surround you,

flow through you,

and unveil the true you,

standing alone in the chrysanthemum field.


I reach for the picture of you

that hangs prominently in my view.

And I feel hopeful for renewal. 


Come my love.

There is much to be revealed.

There is much to be healed,

as we lie together in the chrysanthemum field.

About the Podcast

The Kundalini Chronicles
Kundalini Awakening
This podcast features the lessons learned from Scott Bryant-Comstock's Kundalini Awakening. Scott shares aspects of his kundalini awakening, reads a spontaneously written poem coming straight from the universe, and provides a bit of homework to help guide you in your own self discovery for improvement.

More about the host, Scott Bryant-Comstock:
For the past 40 years, my journey as a mental health advocate has spanned working at a suicide and crisis center, as a therapist in an outpatient clinic, an in-home family therapist, a state mental health official, Board Chair for a county mental health program, and a national reviewer of children’s mental health systems reform efforts. As the Children’s Mental Health Network (2009) founder, I lead the Network’s efforts to grow a national online forum for the exchange of ideas on how to continually improve children’s mental health research, policy, and practice. Through it all, I remain optimistic that the voice of advocates can, and will, be heard. We need strong advocates now, more than ever!

In 2019 I had a Kundalini awakening, which dramatically changed my life for the better and put me in touch with the universe in a way that I had not realized before. "My purpose on this earth is clear: to be of service to others and nourish their quest to become the better human they strive to be.”
