A WORDLESS MUTUALITY
WITHOUT ATTEMPTS TO EXPLAIN…
WITHIN OR WITHOUT
ROOTED IN FERTILE COW DUNG
CAN A SEED EXPLAIN IN WORDS
TO A PILE OF DUNG, BIRD, COW OR HUMAN?
(as the above Whisper Wrote,
there was NO conscious memory
of the first four quotes (green font below)
that were saved during the last two days...
for today's Offering)
It takes great courage to meet
the full force of your aloneness.
Most of the activity in society is subconsciously designed
to quell the voice crying in the wilderness within you.
that when you go out into the world,
you return having lost some of yourself.
Until you learn to inhabit your aloneness,
the lonely distraction and noise of society will seduce
you into false belonging,
with which you will only become empty and weary.
something begins to happen.
Gradually, the sense of bleakness changes
into a sense of true belonging.
This is a slow and open-ended transition
but it is utterly vital
in order to come into rhythm
with your own individuality.
of finding your true home within your life.
It is not narcissistic,
for as soon as you rest
in the house of your own heart,
doors and windows begin to open
outwards to the world.
your connections with others
become real and creative.
scrape affirmation from others
or from projects outside yourself.
This is slow work;
it takes years to bring your mind home.
in all its beauty
be ashamed of
where it grows.

is that it feels like
we always have a carrot in front of us.
– Rodney Yee
We should meet abuse by forbearance.
Human nature is so constituted
that if we take absolutely no notice of anger or abuse,
the person indulging in it will soon weary of it and stop.
“Patience is the highest asceticism.”
This is a quote attributed to the Buddha,
from the 184th verse of the Dhammapada.
If we remain too identified with “falling apart,”
we lose contact with that which was never unhealed,
untransformed, and was never “together” to begin with.
That innate radiance, the holiness of the breath,
and the miracle of having an open sensitive nervous system.
We disconnect with the magic of embodied presence,
the wisdom of the mud and the earth,
and the unshakable confidence in our true nature.
we split off from our organic spontaneity,
imaginative vulnerability, and the truth
that love will take whatever form it must
to reveal its qualities within us.
Raw, achy, illuminating
heartbreak may approach at any time,
requesting safe passage inside.
But it is through this broken aliveness
that the poetry of our lives will flow.
“falling apart” and “holding it together”
is the secret place.
It is here where light and dark are at play.
For just a moment the veil parts.
We peer behind the curtain and are astonished.
do not agree with your direct experience,
trust your experience.
Prefer the truth of your
experience to your dearest delusions...
