THE ONE ETERNAL MOMENT OF PRESENCE
GREAT BREATHER’S BREATH
ANNULS ALL THAT IS NOT REAL
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God.
Nothing Real Can Be Threatened
What is silence?
We think if we are quiet, we are silent.
But we must come to silence without desire and wanting,
otherwise we are not silent.
~ Tara Singh
All wordings below
from William Martin
See end of post for link
We are all forms
of the formless mystery of Tao.
We are nurtured and sustained by it,
and our form will return to it.
From Tao Te Ching, Chapter 51
“What was your form
before you were born?”
Has no logical answer.
My conditioned mind
works its way back in time,
and hits a place beyond which
it cannot go.
and again hits a place it cannot go.
But the idea that the consciousness
I see as me, began at birth and will end at death
has no real logic either.
So the answer to the question is…?
come from the mind’s attempt to project our present experience of life
into places the projection will not go.
But that does not mean there is no answer to these eternal conundrums.
It simply means that the answer is not available to my conditioned mind.
Even my glimpses of the deeper, “Tao Mind,”
do not provide a logical linear answer.
Ancient mariners used maps that showed uncharted waters as,
“Beyond here there be dragons!”
That’s what my conditioned mind sees
when it attempts to go where it can never venture.
We’ll see some day.
