Mirror of Perfection

I promise you nothing

For I have nothing to give

Nothing to prove

And nothing to be

No thing here

Just a report

From the emptiness of nothing

The expansive land of everything

This quaint country

Called human existence

Expressing now

Here

I can teach you nothing

I have nothing to teach

These words are a whisper

The breath of silence

Touching you

Truth awakening it’s own essence

In you

Stirring the seeds

Grace planted

Eons ago

Pay no attention to the words

Feel the essence that is woven

Between and beyond

These words

That cannot really begin to describe

The wordless wonder

But point inexorably to

The experience

Of this

This

Words that spark aliveness

Shooting arrows of truth’s fire

Igniting the driest wood

And warming that which is damp

Every spark

Beaming rays of golden knowing

Magnetising Self’s perfection

To collect the rest of itself

Home

Home to

Wholeness itSelf

To the field

Where all things reside

As beauty

Reflected by nothing

Pure perception

Of a world emanating truth

The appearance of love

Crafted from the presence of holy knowing

Where nothing happens

Yet everything is happening

To no one

What sublime hilarity

A divine paradox

This life unfolding

In the light

Of grace

Luminously available

To all who

Truly

Long to see

Their own Breath

In the mirror

Of perfection

Ego Bows

Ego does not die
it humbles
to awareness
of something
greater

Ego lets go
of it’s need
to control
and allows

Ego matures
and is content
to rest in
it’s place
in the whole

Ego is relieved
to give up pretending
it is a super power
a separate self
and just be
a tool in the box
alongside
mind
and intellect

Ego bows
it’s brow
to the
eternal
ground of Being

Ego prostrates
to the holiness
to the omnipotence
of Life

And lets go
Yields
to grace
as notions
of time
and space
dissolve

A tear falls
of joy
of grief
of peace

I am…

I am
a ball of wool
unravelling
bearing the crimps
of having been
knitted into
the story of a
sweater

It was
a nice sweater
deep and cosy
and colourful
and rich
warm
and full
of goodness

Now
I am
the same ball of wool
I always was
imprinted with
memories
of a story
of a me
of a life lived
seeking
wholeness
seeking
meaning
purpose
to fit in
somewhere
please

I am
a ball of wool
unknitted
free
open
wildly revealed
divinely
holy

I am
a ball of wool
resting in
pure potentiality
of Being

Nothing
other than
this

This Exquisite

This exquisite morning
Sun peeping through trees
and sharing it’s brilliance
in guest appearances
throughout the forest
Eyes bathing in golden light

Like stars fallen from the sky
light sparkles on the ocean
A reflection of divine
beauty that shines
in everything
everywhere

Who could have made this
delightful morning
with such show stopping
stunning magnificence?

Tender warm sun on skin
Wind tousling hair
Tiny sand shell dust between toes
Perfect ice cold freshness
of salty water
Baptizing body
Immersing in this ocean
of wholeness

A seamless unity
Dynamic experience
and the absolute
stillness of God

Communion
of One

Peace

Like a gentle stroke of your cheek

The comfort of a deep exhale

A gaze that holds yours

for a deep knowing moment

or two

Self is here
with a hand
on your shoulder
inviting you
coaxing you
to remember
who you are
You are right here
in the whisper of stillness
Right here
in the nowness
of this moment
Right here
in this fountain of beauty
that begs to be seen
in it’s fullness
In this sacred
everything even on a rainy day
sun is here
shining it’s luminous brilliance
and so too are you
bright and warm
and whole
Right here in the essence
of happening
Here you are
All of you
Rest a moment
and risk knowing yourSelf
Take a step beyond
the edge of experience
into the vastness
of your whole Self
And float in the clarity
of deep peaceful Being
Peace is
who you are
You are Peace
Peace is You

Portrait of You

Everything sparkles
with the infinite
presence
of itSelf
Emptiness dances
in the reflection
of beauty
swirling in love
drunk on freedom
consumed by truth


Absolute wholeness
fulfilled
amidst the apparent
chaos
of life’s delightful
adventure


Allow tears to fall
hearts to crack open
all feelings to
be fully felt
to the core
of Being


Where pain dissipates
into sensation
into vibration
into transparent
joyous
Being


And emptiness dances
in the space
of the story
where it is just a murmur
of a me
tumbling on the shore
of life’s richness


Where every drop
of everything
has a place
in this
divine mystery


Awareness is here
holding you in
the absolute embrace
as relativity
unfolds


You are held
held so perfectly
sweetly by mother
so you
can let go


Everything is created
from one
essence
with different
flavours
of expression


Silence
Stillness
Presence
Love
Joy
Bliss
Beauty
Radiance
Luminosity
Freedom
Peace
Truth
Knowing
God


The divine palette
of one
the colours
of now


Paint a picture of
perfect wholeness


A divine portrait of
You
