THE SILENCE BEFORE SOUND
By Way of Introduction
This site contains reflections of my journey and ongoing experience.
Although the experiences described may sound lofty and exalted,
I dismiss the finality of notions such as “enlightenment” or “awakening”,
for my Experience has shown that it's unwise at best,
and delusional at worst,
to ever plant a flag and declare the summit.
While there have been profound, transmuting milestones
along The Way,
in my experience there is no finality –
except in the timeless, spaceless, objectless
Experience of Nonexistent Existence –
These words will only touch your Soul
If your Heart is already Pregnant.
How will you know?
The baby will Kick.
The great religions are ships,
Poets, the life boats.
Every sane person I know,
Has jumped overboard.
I profess the religion of Love,
Wherever its caravan turns along the way,
That is the belief, the faith I keep.
I know nothing.
I understand nothing.
I am unaware of Myself.
I am in Love,
But with whom I do not know.
I do not know who I am.
I am in astounded, lucid confusion.
Come, we know a way,
A path from the house
You've lived in for so long,
To a garden that will take your breath away.

WITH THE ANCIENT NEWNESS
OF EMBRYONIC LIFE ON EARTH
EMBRYO OF THE UNFATHOMABLE
IN SAFE SHIELD/WOMB
The man of today may think,
'What a life, to be silent and do nothing!'
However, he does not know that some by their silence can do more than others can accomplish by talking for ten years.
A person may argue for months about a problem and not be able to explain it,
while another, with inner radiance,
may be able to answer the same thing in one moment.
The answer that comes without words explains still more.
That is initiation.
it is indicative of Christian mysticism
that before we come to the unitive state
we must be absolutely grounded,
and for the rest of our lives,
in the knowledge of our own nothingness,
The idea of getting to the unitive state
without this is just wishful thinking,
a total error.
we discover the truth of St. Paul’s saying,
“In my weakness is my strength”
(Faith, which is God),
“I will glory in my infirmities”,
because God sustains even our nothingness.
we finally meet God,
only this time we meet God on His Ground,
not on our ground.
Grounded in the Knowledge of our Weakness
