WHEN ALL ONE HAS
DONE THAT HARMED OTHERS...
ONE BECOMES VICTIM OF SAME
ON INNER PLANES OF CONSCIOUSNESS
SOLITARY LIFE WITH ORIGINAL CORE
PROVIDES SANCTARII FOR FINAL CLEANSING
OF ALL THAT IS UNREAL...
UNBIDDEN LIGHT/DARK DANCES
AROUND ORIGIN’S CORE…
…THE CENTERPOINT OF
IS ALL THAT IS
BEYOND ALL THOUGHTS & WORDS…
…SUCH A ONE REALIZING WHAT HAS
ALWAYS WILL BE….
CAN ONLY BE INFINITELY LIVED
has no rose-color, no fine friends, no chivalry, no adventures;
does not want admiration;
dwells in the hour that now is,
in the earnest experience of the common day,
—by reason of the present moment and the mere trifle
having become porous to thought
bibulous of the sea of light.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Over-Soul
When riverside trees sparkle in sunlight,
So close in my heart their shadows fall,...
The Universe is a floating lotus
In the holy lake of my mind.
I am the voice within the Voice,
The life within the Life,

so the more we resist our grief,
the more we also resist the treasure of joy
available to us in abundant measure.
but the deep wells of sorrow we each carry within our hearts
over losses and brokenness,
betrayals and wounding.
we are called to welcome in these feelings,
and in the process we carve out space for joy and love as well.
he says the 6th step is contentment.
we find in other traditions as well.
In yogic practice it is called santosha,
and both mean a commitment to be with
the truth of our experience
and find a measure of peace and joy
with what you have.
for what might be and to rest in the grace of what is.
Finding contentment with this moment
is a very monastic practice and opens us
to the possibility of joy.
is that the artist creates out of the materials given.
that we accept the truth of our situation,
and then seek to create from it,
whether beauty or more peace or a way of honoring the grief,
then we become artists of our everyday lives.
for some better materials to come along first.
The artist does not say,
I will only dance when I am thinner or healthier.
because we most often tap into it
when we are engaged in creative activity
like art or dance,
or when we are in the midst of nature
witnessing the Great Artist at work.
when we find our way through conflict to a deeper sense of intimacy.
Or through cooking a beautiful meal
with the ingredients we have on hand.
that in the midst of our tenderness and vulnerability
comes a great softening
which allows us to finally ask
for the support we need.

Above quotes in this font from:
The apparent separation of the human consciousness from the Universal and Omnipresent Consciousness... is not 'real'. However - the intensification of the experience of the illusion of such separation has been the defining characteristic of most of the short span of recorded Human history.
we simultaneously became more acutely aware of our apparent separation.
This provoked an existential anxiety and obsession
with trying to control the apparently separate external reality.
This process reached its natural limit as experienced
in the unprecedentedly destructive politics and science of the last century.

This is what we refer to as
'the Return of the Bird Tribes'!
