*Rather than focus on what needs changing…
turn attention to what cannot change.
"... and the Quiet Answer is t/here instantly...
...usually something simple like:
Appreciate whatever it is!
Take a nap!
It’s not later!
It’s not in that time of retirement.
It’s not when the lover gets here.
It’s not when you’ve moved into the new house.
It’s not when you get the better job.
You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now,
because it’s not ever going to get better than right now--
until it gets better right now!
The pearl you seek is buried in the mud of seeking.
Bliss is the pulse of your own existence,
before you give it a Sanskrit name.
the vibration of this silence,
into a technique,
it is lost for another thousand years.
Can you turn off the new age news,
shut down your computer,
go app-less for an hour,
and gaze into the only webnar that can ever teach you wisdom:
the tiny blue forget-me-not that grows by the bird bath,
where you forgot to mow the weeds?
and yoga cures
are just more of the dis-ease:
grok the source of all dharmas,
sadhanas, chants and mantras,
in the luminous clarity
of your own Eye.
Melt into the Beauty
of the one who looks.
the nectar that angels thirst for?
Who will taste the pomegranate
of God that has just split open in your heart,
gushing ten thousand seeds of love?
Nobody reveals anything to you but your Self.
Your real Guru
is the one who whispers this secret,
like a lover at midnight.

to lie face to the sky
and water bears them,
as hawks rest upon the air
and air sustains them,
so would I learn to attain
freefall, and float
into Creator Spirit's deep embrace,
knowing no effort earns
that all-surrounding grace.
