DELICIOUSLY ENLIVENED=DELICIOUSLY DEAD
ALL IS BEYOND-ALWAYS WELL
SUCH A SOUL
there is no need to repeat I am aware.
You are simply aware;
the I is no more.
From The Book of Secrets, Discourse #54,
by David Whyte
if you move carefully
through the forest,
like the ones
in the old stories,
who could cross
a shimmering bed of leaves
without a sound,
whose only task
is to trouble you
but frightening requests,
conceived out of nowhere
but in this place
beginning to lead everywhere.
you are doing right now,
to stop what you
while you do it,
that can make
that have patiently
waited for you,
that have no right
to go away.

And only where the forest fires have sped,
Scorching relentlessly the cool north lands,
A sweet wild flower lifts its purple head,
And, like some gentle spirit sorrow-fed,
It hides the scars with almost human hands.
Of desolating fire, of human pain,
There comes some purifying sweet belief,
Some fellow-feeling beautiful, if brief.
And life revives, and blossoms once again

“When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover you cannot eat money.
Quoted in Supreme Identity by Alan Watts
By God, don't linger
in any spiritual benefit you have gained,
but yearn for more, like one suffering from illness
whose thirst for water is never quenched.
This Divine Court is the Plane of the Infinite.
Leave the seat of honor behind;
let the Way be your seat of honor.

RETURN OF THE BIRD TRIBES - Ken Carey
To quote from Return of the Bird Tribe's introduction...
"There are many names for us.
We have been called angels, Bird Tribes, higher selves,
hoksedas, spirits of the stars.
The reality of what we are is more than a name can convey...".
Keeping in mind that there is no simple answer
to the question of who the Bird Tribes are - let us say then
that a working definition might be that
the BirdTribes are the Angelic Consciousness
that knows no separation from the Sacred Source of All Existences,
and constantly remembers its ultimate kinship with all created beings.
The Bird Tribes are us
when we have integrated permanent awareness
of the Divine Presence.
They are our complete wholeness speaking
to us from the dimension where they eternally reside.
