BEING=DOING WITHOUT THOUGHT
THAT HAPPENED AS LIFE TOOK FORM ON EARTH
ARE NOW REPEATING
THEY WERE OBVIOUSLY SURVIVED THEN
DEATH EXPERIENCES TOO NUMEROUS TO MENTION
DURING THIS LIFE WERE OBVIOUSLY SURVIVED
(…OR ANY CONSCIOUS AWARENESS!)
…AND SO IT MUST BE NOW…

More re: Estes, Rainmaker & More
we encounter a world where
all things are at rest in the same way.
Then a tree becomes a mystery,
a cloud a revelation,
each man a cosmos of whose riches we can only catch glimpses.
~ Dag Hammarskjöld from Markings
Quoted on this OceanSpeak
which has some extraordinary photos!
Especially of Ocean Breakers and...at the very end...photos in our Garden Lot Tree... a song bird...
Drink from the unknown and call it wine.
Savor one breath of silence
through your broken heart
and call it bread.
This is far better
than a thousand right answers.
You wear your silence
as a black silk gown,
every thread a letter
of your lover's name.
And your stillness is
a trembling at the touch
of those invisible lips.
The motion of that kiss
has no first cause,
but a stirring in the groin
One must dance naked
as a flame without a wick
to entice the dawn.
It is not enough
to be quiet and empty,
because there is honey
in each cell of darkness
and the tomb is full of wine.
If your meditation
does not consume the moon,
the stars, the pit
in the swirl of yearning
with a tongue of fire that
tastes the subtle, ruthless,
delicate blade of love
then you are not singing
from the center
of your desolation.
You are just being quiet
which is not enough.
You are still waiting
for a God to say,
"Let there be light."
You must burn off
all these veils
in the moment before
you were born.
Only when I gave up being 'right'
did I discover my true nature -
Judgment drains energy.
Love restores energy.
Love without judgment IS energy.
Om Tat Sat.
This entire creation is made out of That.
I am not expounding
a philosophy that you believe or disbelieve.
I am pointing to
the golden sunlight inside your breath.
I never arrived
but I come from a thousand different places
sometimes from sorrow and hurt
sometimes from the greatest joy
other times from shame and guilt
from projections and competition
I come from a thousand different places
I never arrived
Sometimes I come from ignorance and blame
sometimes from darkness and despair
I have come from happiness and communion
from disappointment and loneliness
I come from a thousand places
I never arrived
I came from inferiority and superiority
sometimes from equality
I have come from thoughts and emotions
and I have called them love
I come from silence
I have arrived
I don’t know
When there is stillness within you,
your body, mind, and energies
will be exuberantly intense.
Adyashanti - Everlasting Inheritance
Within the immortality of what you are,
there is a contentment and peace born only of your true identity.
for to arrive at the nobility of truth
you must be cleansed of all borrowed knowledge
till you are as innocent
as the day before you were born.
nor holy book,
nor well-reasoned philosophy or belief,
but only to itself—immortal and pure.
so that you may be restored to the unitary vision
which is your everlasting inheritance.
-- Adyashanti, Everlasting Inheritance
(An Unfinished Poem)
