until the Breather Claims all shadows.
after the ash
it repeats & repeats
Disappearing these feeble vault words
so One who is Destined to See...will
& those who cannot See will not.
THE CLOWNING JOY
OF IT ALL!
when there is no death!
how can the condition of Baubo be a dis-ease
when she is nothing more
than the Loose Garment of the Beloved?

There is a song of the Universe - let’s sing it.
There is a hymn of praise - let’s praise it.
There is a joy, a beauty;
there is a deep abiding peace;
let’s experience it.”

Sometimes deafening to your ears
Whispers that a scream can’t muffle
Whispers echoing deep within
In the midst of all the chaos
Set aside some special time
Just be still and listen
You may hear life’s eternal chimes.

I access the necessary information exactly when I need to.

He can grasp things that you have to struggle with
because there is not much of him within himself.
When you are too full of self,
there is no room for anything higher to happen.
a temple-going, pooja-doing, coconut-breaking person.
A devotee has understood what his place in the existence is.
If you have understood this and are conscious of it,
you will walk as a devout person.
There is no other way to be.
It is a very intelligent way to exist.
the pains of this hell on earth,
the utter emptiness it brings,
you might experience within you a revolt,
a disgust so powerful that it will shatter
the chains of dependence and deceit
that have been forged around your soul
and you will break loose
into the kingdom of innocence
where mystics and children dwell.

THE WAY TO LOVE
THE LAST MEDITATIONS
ANTHONY DE MELLO
that seems impossible to fulfill because we cannot bear the pain.
The danger in doing so is that we forget the name of that longing...
...and if we cannot find it again,
we lose a piece of ourselves.
Home is, of course, not simply a physical place.
It is a sense of belonging,
of remembering and being remembered,
put back together again
when our journeys into the world have fractured and fragmented
our sense of self.
To live deeper we have to go to places
that help us find a slower rhythm.
But simply going to these places is not enough.
We have to let these places touch us,
speak to us.
~Oriah Mountain Dreamer
– from getting from “here” to “there” –
to resting in our true nature,
in a compassionate tending to reality as it is,
oriented in curiosity and the love of being alive.
In some strange way,
we sense that we are already healed,
already awake in the immediacy of this moment.
But how could this be?
We become aware of a primordial sort of trust in ourselves and in life.
Nothing need be cultivated or generated,
shifted, or transformed.
Not for right now.

At some point along the way, we may become aware of a call to set aside the practices, teachings, and techniques, for just a moment, and rest. Something else is emerging, a longing to fully participate in the miracle of life that is already here.
A longing to stop doing, to stop trying to become a better person, to understand, accept, transform or heal; to stop trying to be at peace, and open to the completeness of this moment as it is.
It is a bit groundless here and can feel disorienting as we are so used to doing, interpreting, getting somewhere, and resolving something. Attending to our projects. Fixing ourselves. Remedying some fundamental flaw in what we are.
In this new environment, we become more curious about the space in and around our thoughts and emotions, rather than their content. Our center of gravity shifts from the contents of awareness to awareness itself. Awareness becomes foreground and contents become background. The bottom drops out from underneath us, as well as the top and sides. We’ve arrived home, but it is not the home we thought.
Our orientation shifts from healing and transformation – from getting from “here” to “there” – to resting in our true nature, in a compassionate tending to reality as it is, oriented in curiosity and the love of being alive. In some strange way, we sense that we are already healed, already awake in the immediacy of this moment. But how could this be?
We become aware of a primordial sort of trust in ourselves and in life. Nothing need be cultivated or generated, shifted, or transformed. Not for right now.
To stay with this much openness requires a new level of friendliness, kindness, and compassion. Without it, we’re not going to be able to practice intimacy with the vulnerability, explore the unknown, and stay with the groundlessness of having no reference point other that awareness itself.
Inevitably we will notice that we have left the freshness of now and traveled into past or future, images, memories, daydreams, and fantasies; it can feel somewhat like falling down a rabbit hole. But like Alice in her journeys into Wonderland, things are not as they appear.
When you notice that you have fallen, you could get curious, become fascinated with what it is like to become distracted and the gloriousness of even that… to touch the mystery of lost and found, and very gently return into the spaciousness of now.
