Cat kills the mouse…dog kills the cat…coyote kills the dog…
Ocean tsunami kills an island village
Lightning sets a house on fire..destroys a tree
Human nature kills animals, trees, oceans and one another
No “I” remains to blame “God” for any of this
Nor do we dwell upon...or try to stop these “Natural” Happenings.
But rather live possessed by that which
Breathes & Ceases to Breathe

…That which Breathes & Ceases to Breathe ALL…
But I cannot bear to let my Nasturtiums die.

I do this because I love them.
They make me happy,

I hear them begging me to put them in the compost pile

Simply rest, sit still and unknot.
You may even try to emulate and inspire,
But it's the inner self that you'll transpire.

I recently saw a video of my present self...
These were the "reflections" that came...
Seeing myself I immediately felt compassion and empathy for "her";
for the way she walked, the way she held herself, and how she had
aged, since the last time she saw "her", as if it wasn't me, but a dear
friend that I had known for a long, long time, and knew all that she
had been through... There was a recognition of something in "her"
that I could not name at that moment...
Days later the "recognition" began to unwind itself.
I was awestruck that I could see myself as not myself, as if I were
someone else seeing "her", as if the true Presence at the Core of my
Being was seeing me/her...
I internally gasped...
It was the recognition that it was the Core Being that was
recognizing ItSelf as "me."
It was a spontaneous moment of truly "seeing" that which inhabits
and animates this "me"...
Being which was seeing; seeing an image of ItSelf as "me" -
as if , but which is really only an echo of ItSelf.
yet another recognition:
I am that which Sees from the Core of my Being.
And my Core Being sees "me" as ItSelf,
not "me" as I know myself to be through the mind.
The self that we think we are is only an echo of our
Eternal Beingness, or Essence...
within myself, seeing/recognizing ItSelf within myself - as myself.
Instead of seeing myself through the eyes of my mind,
I was seeing myself through
the eyes of the Eternal Being
that abides at the Core of my Being - here.
This changed the perception...
Seeing "her" from Beingness ItSelf,
seeing ItSelf in myself...
recognizes HerSelf in us as us.
The Eternal Being is the one Seeing,
without the mind's conditioning...
