IN/OF/AS AUSPICIOUS SILENCE
EVEN IF/WHEN THE DANCE INCLUDES HUMAN NATURE
SILENCE OF THE ATTUNED ORIGINAL SOUL PREVADES
PENETRATING THRU ALL HUMAN NATURE AND HISTORY
TO THE DEEPEST ORIGINAL CORE OF REALITY
WITHOUT I-DO’S ADO
ALL IS WELL
It is Well With My Soul-Wintley Phipps

and shut your doors behind you;
hide yourselves for a little while
until the fury has passed by.
. ~ Isaiah 26:20
in some designated point of space;
it is right behind the darkness
that you perceive with closed eyes.
and the micro universe will create a gate,
or a door.
Lao Tzu called this
“the door to all wonders.”
This is where yin and yang merge harmoniously.
This is also called the Middle Way.
For that forty minutes last night
I was as purely sensitive and mute as a photographic plate;
I received impressions, but I did not print out captions.
My own self-awareness had disappeared;
it seems now almost as though, had I been wired to electrodes,
my EEG would have been flat.
that I have lost self-consciousness
about moving slowly and halting suddenly.
And I have often noticed that even a few minutes
of this self-forgetfulness is tremendously invigorating.
just by spending every waking minute
saying hello to ourselves.
“When you walk across the field
with your mind pure and holy,
then from all the stones, and all growing things,
and all animals, the sparks of their souls
come out and cling to you,
and then they are purified
and become a holy fire in you."
- Annie Dillard (1945 - )
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope,
for hope would be hope for the wrong thing;
wait without love,
for love would be love of the wrong thing;
there is yet faith,
but the faith and the love are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought,
for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light,
and the stillness the dancing.
