... Whispers from Morning Writngs in Ocala, FL (February-April 2018)
A SIMPLICITY BEYOND WORDS & THOUGHTS
WHICH ARE IMPOSSIBLE
UNNECESSARY & EVEN DANGEROUS
ALL WORDINGS AND THOUGHTS INTENDED TO PREACH/TEACH/EXPLAIN
INTENSIFY THE POSSESSION OF MURDEROUS CHAOS
“Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.”
“..keep peace in your soul.”*
The first quotes below in this color font were ALL Found and put on the OceanSpeak for today
yesterday morning before the mid-morning murderous eruption.
Had NOT consciously remembered these quotes (OR that they are already on today's draft...)
when the above Whisper just Wrote this morning.
in the same way that a net is the wrong tool
for gathering water.
Unattached to body, unattached to mind,
allowing everything just as it is.
What could be the problem?

"What I say is right, and what you say is wrong."
A sage never says such a thing hence, there is no discussion.
Bowl of Saki, May 24, by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Once I was with a sage whom many people went to see.
He pleased them all, and he was not fond of disputing or discussing,
because to a sage there is nothing to discuss.
'What I say is right, and what you say is wrong.'
A sage never says such a thing; hence there is no discussion.
But the world is always fighting and discussing and disputing.
but he did his best to avoid dispute.
I was very fond of listening to his way of dealing with inquirers.
My friends wanted to discuss what the ideal life is.
He said, 'Whatever you think it is.'
'Do you think this worldly life, with so many responsibilities,
with strife from morning to evening,
can be the ideal life?'
He said, 'Yes.'
retirement and seclusion,
is the ideal life?'
He answered, 'Yes.'
our responsibilities to our children,
our occupations, and all these things that take up so much time.
How can we leave that life in order to follow your ideal life?'
He said, 'Do not leave it.'
If you think your life is a spiritual life, keep to it.
It is not possible to say which life is best.
If you think your worldly strife brings you happiness, just keep to it.
If you think my life gives you happiness,
give up your own.
do it from that moment, and see what the result is.
If it gives you more happiness, go on regardless of what others say.
If it gives you happiness, if you are satisfied while doing it,
while reaping its effect, then it is all right.
Go on with it,
and you will always be blessed.'
and moral principles,
as they know them.
But there comes a time in a man's life
when he has touched truth
of which he cannot speak in words;
and at that time all dispute,
NO GRINDING AND/OR FALLS/FALSE STARTS
ALL IS RISEN/RISING IN ALCHEMICAL VESSEL
PREGNANT VIRGIN/BAUBO GLORY
Beyond All Emotion and Physical Form
In The Stillness Of The Silence
We discover Who We Truly Are
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
they are vexatious to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
(Short history of this writing on above link)
CAN KNOW SO MUCH
WITHOUT A “ME”
TO THINK OR TALK “IT”
THERE IS NO OTHER
WHEN THERE IS NO ME
IT POOFS WHEN REPLACED BY THE LOVING RESPONSE TO ITS
HOWLING/YOWLING SAVIOUR ASPECT
The BUGABOO/WHIRLING DOWNWARD SUFFOCATING MESS…WITHIN…. is the habit or obsession to SHARE or Overflow (in words or thoughts) all that we Know and Are.
What a DRAINING and suffocating mess this creates, first of all WITHIN!!!!
Feel buried in own words/thoughts…

Those who know, do not speak.
Those who speak, do not know.
Close your mouth.
Shut the gates.
Untangle your knots.
Soften your brilliance.
Become one with the dust.
Tao Te Ching # 56
A person filled with the power of Tao
is like a baby boy:
bees can’t sting him,
wild beasts can’t attack him.
A baby has soft bones
and weak muscles,
but a firm grip.
He hasn’t had sex,
but he can get an erection.
That’s because he’s got lots of energy.
He can cry all day
and never lose his voice.
That’s because he’s at one with his world.
If you’re at one with the world,
you know constancy.
And if you know constancy,
you’ve been enlightened.
It’s not healthy
to try to prolong your life.
It’s unnatural to impose the mind’s will
upon the body.
People waste time and energy
trying to be strong or beautiful,
and their strength and beauty fade.
They’ve lost touch with Tao,
and when you lose touch with Tao,
you might as well be dead.

Author on the right column slams it. (may have sent him before!)
Keep getting buried in my own thoughts/words and worse than that this obsession to “share” with others
via words/thoughts. YIKES….what FOLLY!
So we looked up Tao #56 (AGAIN!) and then also see #55 (above)
