Here – Now…
August 2, 2012

Here,

everything is;

nothing Being something – something Being nothing.

Now,

there is delight in Being.

With eyes there is seeing,

with ears there is hearing,

with nose & mouth,

fragrance can be smelt, touched, tasted – savored.

Here,

the senses are overwhelmed by the fullness of Being.

A divine sweetness pervades all so-called matter: all circumstance – all situations.

.

Life thrives fully & freely here  & now,

both in the up & the down.

Now,

matter & un-matter – don’t matter.

Here,

the breath rests deeply in Being;

there’s only experiencing here.

Now,

there’s no experience & there’s no experiencer.

Here – now,

the impulse of the beloved is naked & direct,

without interpretation,

without understanding,

without story.

.

Here,

the gravity of silence endlessly – tirelessly,

pulls what is sacred into itself.

Stillness

can be found in the bosom this awareness.

Now,

the beloved endlessly – seamlessly,

weaves the fabric of this life together.

Let attention fall gently on the here/now of Self.

Drink forever the divine nectar of this water,

both the sweet & the sour of this & that.

Let [me] see, hear, touch, taste & smell the divine as it inhabits the everyday;

let [me] abandon all notions of separation and a [me] that wants to be.

.

I AM not touched by this life and yet,

life touches deeply.

In the seeing, hearing, touching, tasting & the smelling,

the unseen is forever seen.

Here – now,

the knower is known;

this is the Yoga of what is.

In the hear /now of Self,

the unmoved impersonal,

already/always,

dances with the moved personal.

Every morning [I] wake into this miracle,

it lies not in some burning bush or distant mountain,

nor in the parting of some seas.

The miracle lies in the touch of the hand that guides,

an ear that softly listens,

a nose that smells and a tongue that tastes;

the miracle rests

in

eyes

that

see.

In Being [you’ll] see there was never any becoming.

In Being [you’ll] see there was already/always completeness in the here/now of Self;

there was never any arriving.

Here – now,

is where [I] stand.

Here – now,

[I] stand forever naked as awareness only.

Here – now,

there is a knowing of [Soul]:

in the hearing,

touching,

tasting,

smelling and seeing;

in the here – now of Self,

the

I – I

stands.

Soul
July 23, 2012

.

Soul

is not what it knows or understands,

it’s not what it hears,

has,

or does.

It’s not what it thinks or does not think,

where it goes or does not go,

what it says,

sees,

feels,

touches or smells.

Soul has no colour,

no language & no location;

it’s not what it eats or does not eat,

wears or does not wear,

believes or does not believe.

.

.

Unmoved & unchanging,

Soul has its home in the here/now of Self.

Above & below,

in the spoken & unspoken,

in the light & the dark,

in the pause between in breath & out breath,

in the silent space between us;

in the seeing,

touching,

smelling,

hearing & tasting – Soul

can

be

found.

.

.

Soul cannot be known,

but there can be knowing;

here – now,

there can be the wisdom of understanding,

a dispassionate & discriminating passion.

Here – now,

in the apparent having & doing,

there can be seeing.

In the stillness of seeing,

where the time-bound meets the timeless,

where the unmoved orchestrates the moved,

there is love;

a sacred love [we] cannot imagine or understand,

but can only Be

&

rest in;

this is Soul.

Up,Up,Up – Down…
November 27, 2011

.

Spirituality is more often or not suffocating.  Now, especially in the West, there is this unspoken expectation that we live in an UP world: a world filled with UP thinking, UP emotions, UP attitudes, UP actions, UP ideas, UP behaviors that supposedly lead to more and more, UP results.  Where may I ask is there room for the appearance of contraction, and the so-called DOWN of life?  You know, things like negative thoughts, negative feelings, negative emotions, perceptions, associations, and so-called negative memories?

As awareness, it can be seen there is no UP or DOWN – there is only “what is”; then the mind shows up with its additional contribution of editorial insight and judgment based on “what’s happening”.  Any “path” that is not radically inclusive of ALL thoughts, feelings, emotions, perceptions, associations, or memories, is not a path that engages the fullness of what is; it’s a path stuck in dualistic rut called reality.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being surrounded by people who are innocently “positive”, and have an open-minded outlook to life.  It’s especially magical to be in the presence of those who have intimately embraced the humanity of both the UP  and the DOWN of life.  Just don’t try to push your positive thinking crap down my throat, especially if it is hidden under the cloak of so-called spirituality.  It’s a denial of “what is” and is a confused dismissal of the truth that “everything is Consciousness – nothing exists outside of Consciousness” – including the so-called DOWN of life.

The divinity of life appears AS the co-existence of all opposites; the UP would not be UP – if it weren’t for the DOWN.  If we’re really interested in reducing the so-called suffering we experience, we cannot bi-pass the “down” by pretending it does not exist.  It’s only in the seeing of the DOWN for what it is, that we can truly recognize and appreciate the UP;  ultimately, it can be seen there is no UP and there is no DOWN.

The UP and the DOWN are post experience, editorial judgments applied by mind.  To break the hypnosis of dualistic perception, it may require sitting with “what is” until [you] can clearly see “what is”.  To be clear, this is not an exercise in acceptance or allowing, although those words might be useful; it’s an invitation to stay as the silent, unconditional, space of awareness, while the context of the so-called UP and DOWN unfolds.

Come back home to the direct experience of here/now.  Instead of pretending to be something by forcing yourself to think or say something that is not true; instead of reaching for particular thoughts and thinking that might be socially acceptable – reach for awareness.  Instead of grasping for notions, understanding and concepts that are based on the colour of UP and DOWN – settle in awareness; let attention rest AS awareness and be [free] of the neurosis of thinking that creates the UP and DOWN of life…
