The nature of the Eternal. It is One; it produces the Many. Indivisible, yet dividing itself. It produces all things impermanent; yet this impermanence is an illusion; for it can never be destroyed.  It has no beginning and no end.  Infinite and everywhere; it is all things.  It is the Source. It is overflowing. It is complete within itself. It came before; and so it will be again. All divine qualities are its nature. Even the anti-divine; evil, hate, greed, ignorance, come from it, as its opposite, but deep down still its nature, for it is all-encompassing.  It is all things to all things.  The higher qualities; kindness, gentleness, empathy, compassion, come straight from its source.  It is not lacking in any way, shape or form.  The divine spreads itself out into the material,

 

 

The fact is, you will die.  We must all come to terms with it.  Often, when this happens, we start to really live.  Imagine the human lifespan being five years, how much would we soak up every moment?  There is a freedom that is realized when you know that nothing lasts.  Everything becomes both of utmost importance and inconsequential.  Near death experiences can have a profound impact on the human being.  Our we fated to die at a certain time?  Possibly.  Live for each moment knowing it can be your last.  Death can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be.  Look at it as a sweet release from all burdens.  Look at it as nature taking its course.  All things fade away, even the stars. 

 

 

Silence

The way of not speaking

it stands before you plainly

it is begging for your attention

silently of course

It came before, and so must you return

silence in its exacting fullness

all the many mute tongues

of the sages

all who surely know

so wise yet not saying, anything

nothing at all

speaking is one step away, after another

after another

stop right now

and retrace your steps

to find that source

that sacred place

before lips move

where non-utterance is saying

all that needs to be said

come from that place

where all words have their origin

where words will align

with that great wisdom

you will then speak

from the heart and with the soul

empathy,

 

 

What does it mean to be spiritually awake?  First of all, it is a choice; I would say it is an equal choice of both your soul and your conscious decision making.  Red pill or Blue pill?  To wake up is a double-edged sword.  Would you choose to wake up, to see reality as it is, even if it meant seeing the stark truth of life, a possible inconvenient and wholly unsettling truth, or even subject yourself to great suffering?  When you wake up you let go.  You let go of everything you think you were, for it is just a story, not your real identity.  Dark night of the soul perhaps.  You start looking at the world through spiritual eyes; you begin to feel things more deeply;

 

The Other

beware of “those people”

they are dangerous

they are a different breed

they are not like us

lets form a group

lets take a stand

they are taking our land

They do not belong here

I for one see

that they are not like me

I want them out of existence

they are not worthy

of being

of sharing the same Earth

the God that shines on me

also views them as not worthy

my mind separates, categorizes,

and forms distinctions

I don’t know them

yet I’m spinning illusory webs

in their direction

I take that as real

but in all reality

they are just like me

if I took the time

to get to know them

but hold on right there

that takes work

I’m a lazy man

plain as day

for all to see

possibly

even proud of my ignorance

a dangerous game

but why worry

it takes introspection

possibly changing

so why bother

it is much easier

to look at them

as

The Other
