comes as I pull into parking lot at Henry Co Hospital
where supposed planet entry took place…..
They “killed” Ma with ether, during her labor with me...
(she described it in that manner when i was very young)
...so of course that kind of Silence has had a mixed bag with me....
….it seemed to be a return to Vast Source Silence,
but at the same time thrust me into the hands
of a nasty patriarchal Mdiety….with forceps & noise.
The polar opposites then began…

by fear and trembling,
but we take it as a message
that it's time to stop struggling
and look at what's threatening us.
Even if you have a very busy mind,
if you let go of judging your mind for being busy,
even in the midst of the busyness,
this stillness is still there.
Similarly, if you let go of judging the exterior situation
- your world-
for being noisy or chaotic,
even for a moment,
this true stillness is there.
our emotional being opens.
It is only then that we begin to realize
that so much of our instability
is caused by our constant arguing
with what’s happening.
is not something that we’re taught.
In many ways we’re taught to be
in a constant state of friction with,
to be in battle with what is.
it puts us in a sense of future,
where real freedom or real peace
can be found in some time other than now.
We need to return to the solitude within,
to find again the dream that lies at the hearth of the soul.
We need to feel the dream with the wonder of a child
approaching a threshold of discovery.
When we rediscover our childlike nature,
we enter into a world of gentle possibility.
we will find ourselves more frequently at that place,
at the place of ease,
delight, and celebration.
We come into rhythm with ourselves.
Our clay shape gradually learns
to walk beautifully on this magnificent earth.
