ELIMINATES FALSE GODS
SOUL’S PURPOSE PRESIDES
THE PEACE THAT PASSETH EARTHLY UNDERSTANDING
THAT IT KNOWS
I can take into myself now the depths of human loneliness and grief,
open my heart now to unspeakable ecstasies and joys,
rages and terrors and passions,
all intimately mine and all beyond me.
I can weep freely, laugh like a baby now,
unrestrained by this ridiculous thing called personality,
unencumbered by the image.
and love it all
as it passes through.
from suicide and the void and nothingness.
And precisely because of this closeness to death,
it is so alive.
Here on the precipice I can live so much each day.
I feel I could die of contentment.
I could never half-surrender to a half-God.)
A cup of tea with a friend.
A stroll through the park at dusk.
A fleeting memory here and there.
This human life,
illuminated with a soft divine light.
Yet so solid too, so intact.
So comforting to be inside of my own Being.
yet so grounded in the earth,
the body and its rhythms,
the heart and its myriad feelings.
for some reason I chose life or life chose me,
chose to keep me here,
I don't know.
beyond all reason,
beyond all comprehension.
And gratitude is the only word left on my tongue now,
the only word I can speak.
All else is a foreign language.
I know nothing except ‘thank you'.
I have been born again.
- Jeff Foster
Excerpt from much more on full newsletter:
just like you enjoy the contrasting buffet.
And we want you to reach the place
(and practicing Virtual Reality will help you to gain this confidence)
that whenever you’re in front of a buffet that has so much that you do like to eat,
as well as some that you don’t like to eat,
you don’t feel frustrated that there are things there you don’t want to eat.
You don’t feel compelled to put them on your plate and eat them;
you just pick the things that you like.
And the Universe of thought is the same way.
You can choose from it the things that you like.

Daily Thought for 2/13/18
Have no body.
That which is prior to
Name and form is
What one truly is.
Whatever it is called, when called
It does not reply.
...when there are no thoughts,
it is then we come to know the one
hidden by our thoughts.
When there are no clouds,
the blue sky is revealed.
