WATCHING THE ARMED HUNTER
BUILD HIS TREE STAND,
MY SOUL IS CAMOUFLAGED
BY YOU, O BELOVED BREATHER
THAT BREATHES ME
THEY STEALTH AROUND
WITH THEIR BOWS/ARROWS AND
ANY WORDS OR THOUGHTS
IN OR FROM ME
CAUSE THEM TO SEE
WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR
THEY SHOOT TO KILL…..FOR SPORT AND CONTROL
THEY BELIEVE A DEAD CARCASS HAD NO SOUL
THEY BELIEVE THEY KILL THE BREATHER

Don’t depend on others to give you
that which life is waiting to offer you.
Don’t look to others to affirm
that you’re beautiful and powerful and strong.
find your strength by embracing new challenges
with courage and let your pleasant company

"I am not I" "Primal Repose" The Language of Original Being
when you listen to the listening itself.
When you are aware in listening, there is no listener
and nothing is listened to.
There is only Listening.
But first there is Listening to an object,
then comes listening to ourself.
When listening is Silence,
our musical instrument, our body,
is completely penetrated by this objectless Listening.
Then there is something born
that is beyond the human being.
Really live in the absence of what you are not
and this reality will be the background of life.
Live in the absence of yourself.
In the absence of yourself there is presence.
We should take every opportunity
to listen to ourselves
or looking for something new.
When we listen to ourselves and sustain the listening,
there’s a kind of metamorphosis.
is fixed neither in the forehead,
nor in the heart,
nor in the abdominal region.
Listening is absolutely objectless.
It is really a bird that flies everywhere.
See when it lands.
The moment you become aware that you fix it,
in that awareness an emptiness will appear
and this becomes openness.
Don’t put the bird in a cage.
Open all the doors.
Only then can knowledge become being the knowing.
Knowledge takes place in the forehead,
in front of you.
Being knowing is localized nowhere.
But temporarily it is localized as if behind you.
because it takes you away from
the factory of thoughts in the forehead.
When you are localized behind you
at the base of the skull,
you cannot think.
No formulation can occur when you are localized behind.
and you find yourself nowhere,
living in nowhere.
Keep the flavor of our meeting alive.
