ALL IS WELL UNLESS OTHERWISE THOUGHT
MUCK AND MIRE IS PREGNANT COMPOST
APPRECIATION IS ALL THAT IS
We discover an ancient sort of trust in ourselves and in life.
Nothing need be cultivated or generated, shifted, or transformed.
Not for right now anyway.
requires a radical sort of friendliness toward ourselves.
we’re not going to be able to move toward the vulnerability,
enter fully into the unknown,
and open to the vastness of having no reference point
other than awareness itself.
we will notice that we have left the freshness of now
and traveled into past or future,
images, memories, daydreams, and fantasies.
Worthy of awe, in fact.
which it will be sure to do many times during the day,
you could get curious,
become fascinated with what it is like to travel
in this way and the gloriousness of even that.
and replace it with wonder…
touch the mystery of lost and found
and very gently return into
the spaciousness of now.
When you are faced with a difficulty,
you are under the impression that this difficulty
completely blocks your view.
Take this difficulty and compare it with all you possess;
review all your talents, qualities, and so on,

our own Inner Life, our own Inner Being,
that holds the Inner Knowing, rising within from a
Greater universal Knowing
- the Sacred Silence -
from which Knowing comes...

but letting the timeless innate Knowing
teach us, infuse us...
In time emerging into true Self-awareness -
as the Pure Light of Knowing
lights us from within...

through relationship, through sex,
through every form of pleasure and pain,
is only possible when thought
comes to understand itself
and comes naturally to an end.
then love has no conflict.
