Stewards
December 31, 2012

[We] are born with a singular vision;

no one else has the advantage of [our] experience,

knowledge or perception.

In the end though it’s never our own vision,

but the unspoken poetry of an Ocean that speaks;

it’s the voice of eternity that dwells within.

.

We are stewards of the dream,

a dream that is a momentary glimpse and expression of

the One totality

that’s already/always – here/now.

.

Who better to live this dream than you?

Who better to contribute a sound bite of expression;

to expedite the ever-present, ever-unfolding, symphony that is life?

.

Eternity dances here/now;

here/now,

the divine endlessly takes form of the dream,

the dreamer and the dreaming.

We spend our lives crafting a sense of self consciously and unconsciously,

moment by moment,

day by day,

experience by experience – judgment by judgment.

.

[You] can be self conscious

or

[you] can be conscious of Self;

it’s all the same One perception,

that at once results in the appearance of apparent suffering or bliss within the dream.

.

When the dreamer is no longer in the way of the dream;

when the dreamer, dreaming and dream can be seen as One,

everything is possible.

When [we] are deliberately and consciously aware – where awareness knows itself,

attention somehow enlivens the field of awareness elevating the dreamer, the dreaming and the dream;

the dreamer, the dreaming and the dream are One.

What’s the vision you have for life; who is the One with vision?

Rest As The Real
December 22, 2012

.

011

We’re never lost – but [we] appear to abandon;

[we] attempt to give up what’s

true & real,

&

instead place attention on what’s

untrue & unreal.

With inattention,

[we] attempt to abandon [our] true nature

&

replace it with ideas, notions,

&

perceptions of untruth:

false idols like religion, philosophy, conditioning,

&

so-called spirituality.

[We] attempt to abandon what’s true

&

instead put faith into concepts

&

ideas that can only ever represent what’s

true & real;

how can there be trust,

how can there be integrity?

What’s true is always true,

what’s real is always real;

the false attempts to deny what’s true/real

&

suffering arises.

“Me” no longer trusts;

“me” can never fully trust,

because “me” has no integrity.

 What’s real does not need to be understood,

but there can be a knowing,

where understanding,

 trust,

&

integrity

are

irrelevant.

Ideas of the divine can

never replace what is already/always

Divine – here/now;

Rest

as the real.

Where Awareness Knows itSelf
December 6, 2012

023

.

Here/now,

in the midst of the up or the so-called down – awareness can know itself.

Without need of thought or knowledge, without understanding or awakening; awareness can know itself.

Without merit, tenure, or time, awareness can know itself here/now.

In the struggle & strife, in the joy, health & passion, awareness can know itself – here/now.

Deeply – without separation or distinction, awareness can know itself.

Without prayer, pujas or consideration, here & now, in the confusion & doubt, in the anger & pain, awareness can know itself.

Freely & effortlessly, in both the knowing & the unknowing, in the bound & unbound, awareness can know itself.

In the stillness, illness & noise, in expansion/contraction, awareness alone can know itself.

Without instruction or practice, without purpose, belief or ritual, awareness can know itself.

Where awareness knows itself: in action & non-action, in violence & peace; Self can already/always know Self.
