Attempting the Impossible

There seems to be an ongoing argument. Spirit or human? Infinite or finite? Ethereal or material? What if it isn’t one or the other? I’m not sure I can put my current experience into words but you know me, I’ll try. THIS is more complex and more simple than either/or. Minds want a true or …

All Bark, No Bite

We start out as clear experiencing without filters of good and bad — stuff just is, but it doesn’t take long before the filters fall into place like prismatic glasses we put on and forget we are wearing. Our parents, not knowing any better, pass along their knowing programs and instead of free clear experiencing …

Stopping

At some point when you are quite lucky, you stop, stop believing your thoughts, stop trying to get somewhere, stop needing the world to make sense, stop hoping that people will wake up, stop wanting Earth to survive. It simply all stops. For some, it stops all of a sudden although that wasn’t the case …

Absolutely Anything

Honestly, I don’t care if we are evolving past the third dimension. I’m not even concerned if Rome burns. I can’t buy into the fear or the hope for a brand new world, one that we’ll like better even if it is all about love. Sounds a little like a new age version of the …

You KNOW What You Are!

It’s not gonna work. No matter what you do, regardless of how rigorously you train your mind, it will never give you what you seek. Can you see that all your doing has an agenda? Are you willing to grasp that everything you are trying to control is actually brilliantly showing you something infinitely incredible? …

Holding On

Holding On You never know how much you are holding onto until life removes what you were holding onto. Seems strange doesn’t it? When Kenny died, when life removed the beautiful man I was holding onto, I was stuck by how much I was holding onto his life, how I clung to hopes for a …

Dream a Little Dream

It’s all illusion, real but not in the way you think, perceived in a way diametrically opposed to what actually is. You might say life is real illusion. How fun is that! It feels real. It experiences as real. Even our dreams at night have a real feel to them. Sometimes you wake up and …

Cheering You On!

Are you tired? Have you climbed so many mountains that your thighs (and heart) ache all the time? Have you bought all the new gadgets, filled your cupboards with enough stuff for all the expeditions you can possibly imagine? Are you fully cooked? Have you seen the futility or even gotten a tiny glimpse of …

Is This Real?

Harry: Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head? Dumbledore: Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real? Is experience real? It’s a real experience. That’s all we really know. What else is life but experience playing out, our …

The Cat’s Meow

Driving into town today I started laughing and my entire body lit up in an all-encompassing smile. I looked out upon what I have called the world and plainly saw its stunning beauty. The words, ‘form is beauty, beauty is form’ came into clear focus. Form, the world, you, me, everyone and everything, is the …

Trash Talk

I’m done trash talking this little body of mine. Love myself does include loving my body. Can’t get around it. I’ve left it behind, squirmed when I walked by the mirror naked, heck clothed for that matter, and totally ignored it when I could. No wonder it’s hurting. When I was a child my dad …

Obstructionism

The word obstructionism popped into my awareness this morning. When that happens I know am going to write about it. The first thing that came after that word was what do I have to say about obstructionism? Nothing … and then writing began. I love how that works! You see obstructionism every day. It is …

Out of Options

Any practice is the practice of the limited mind. Of course it is, the unlimited has no need of practice. Does that mean that all practice is egoic and should be stopped? No. If that were true nobody would ever move off the couch. Change is a’happening here on planet earth. It’s a given. It …

Being Someone

When the idea of being someone dies When all you were is a blur all you hoped for lived your life for a hot bubbling blister on the sidewalk of life When you see so clearly that seeing feeling being wipes out all reference points for what was When hopes of healing of escape worthiness …

Spring Forth

This, right here, is your life. Sinking deeply into now, here, into life as it is, liberating all hopes for it to be anything else, you are free. Freedom cannot hold out for something new, for anything better or it is not free. It imprisons itself with the surviving optimism. Have you noticed the habit, …
