CLOSER THAN BREATH’S
BEYOND ALL QUESTIONS

Those who talk don't know.
Close your mouth,
block off your senses,
blunt your sharpness,
untie your knots,
soften your glare,
settle your dust.
This is the primal identity.
Be like the Tao.
It can't be approached or withdrawn from,
benefited or harmed,
honored or brought into disgrace.
It gives itself up continually.
That is why it endures.
Tao Te Ching #56

purpose and spirit.
So very strongly and steadily directed from within
that there is no outer,
there is nothing to do.
Instead, you centre yourself and align
with who you truly are and stalwartly remain
in the place of authority and power
and inward truth as your statement
and the only thing you know.
Above link found at end of this post:
If you truly want to take up the path of good you must be aware that you will not be able to escape attack from evil. Because evil is what it is, it will continue to see you as its enemy and you will not convince it to change its nature – whatever you do, it will fight you. Evil only spares those who have sided with it: it protects them and rocks them to sleep so that they remain under its influence as long as possible. But if, on the other hand, you refuse to put yourself at its service, then you arouse its hatred. You may say this is awful. But it is in fact thanks to this hatred that you will go far.
For all the great initiates, evil was implacable,
and those who knew how to interpret events could see in it a clear sign.
Because only those who have been hated by evil to the very last are worthy of receiving the supreme Initiation. Those who did not understand, pity them,
‘Oh, the poor soul; how unkind fate has been to them.’
But those who understand, rejoice and say,
‘They are destined to reach great heights.’
Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
There is a difference in direction, in valence,
and in spin from how we commonly think of it.
There is a famous phrase in Japanese Buddhism that tries to explain this.
"Learn the backward step that turns your light toward to illuminate your self,"
Then "body and mind of themselves will drop away,
and your original face will be manifest."
this backward step is another of way of describing Right Action.
You settle into yourself rather than trying to make the troubling thing go away.
If anything drops away, it does so by itself.
You cannot make it happen differently.

Those who know, do not speak.
Those who speak, do not know.
Close your mouth.
Shut the gates.
Soften your brilliance.
Become one with the dust.
This is the profound union.
yet they cannot be distant either.
No one can help or harm you.
No one can honor or disgrace you.
Thus you achieve the highest state of humankind.

The day started rough, but by sunrise was on such a role with MILESTONE REMEMBRANCES/CLARIFICATIONS!!! and Whispers/Wordings for OceanSpeak.
at eventide we feel caught up….or at least NOT overwhelmed with so much UNNECESSARY!!!
can’t even remember the last time I have felt so level and peaceful this time of the day…usually have to crash in the Abyss bed.
SO SIMPLE…THE SILENCE
this is what we planet-entried Knowing/Being….
Ma’s “ether death” during labor helped to make sure of this ability to survive all
in SILENCE and due to this Quality SILENCE.
Truth of Being
is more Silent
than Death Itself.

This quote below arrives:
No one ever told us we had to study our lives.
That we should begin with the simple exercises first and slowly go on trying
the hard ones, practicing till strength and accuracy
become one with the daring to leap
And in fact we can't live like that: we take on
everything at once before we've even begun to read or mark time,
we're forced to begin in the midst of the hardest movement.
The one already sounding as we are born.
