Be Taken

You are known
by silence
Be still
Be taken
Grace is here
in the pause
between

Listen
Receive silence
as your guest
Open to the heart
of Being
Hold nothing back

Be still
Be taken
You are here
Silent radar
will find you
Presence will enter you
Be found
in the stillness
of Now
Stop seeking
Be found

Be taken
home
Be filled
with awe
Do not need to know
where you are
Not knowing
nourishes presence
Stillness knows
Be found
here
Silent
arms hold you
tenderly

Silent Sketch #2

Words are carried
in silence
What the words say
does not matter
it is the presence
of this moment
they arrive in
that lands
in a knowing place

A knowing place
beyond time and space
Before the story
of me
small and bound
Arriving in presence
Here we are
empty of all
that defines,
That holds us contained

Arriving in our silent home
Freedom
Unbounded awareness
Only aware of now
Freedom, the letting go
of all concepts
we build our fragile world
of separation upon
A world built on thoughts
tentative and volatile

Allowing edges to soften,
merging into what is
These words just pointers
to what is here
The silence they are carried in
an invitation to know
who you are
Right now
Dive deeper than the surface
and discover Being

Words dance to entice the mind
into resonant surrender
Silence pervades all that is
Sowing a seed of stillness
Growing quietly
Letting go of being the one
in control
Expanding into emptiness
and resting
in the now
Presence is the key
the doorway
the map
the territory
the truth
Silence calls
Presence is
This moment is
You are

Silent Sketch #1

 

Drop deeper
than the shallow water
of life’s story
Live from
silent source
where Being is the
movement of heart
to speak
to act
All motion is Being
in flow

Swim below
thoughts and opinions
of being right
or being wrong
Dwell not
in the swell
but in the depths of
Silent Being

In unmoving stillness
there is no you
or me
Just one
Hold onto nothing
Project nothing
Rest as an open
Yes
As openness itself

All answers are held
in silence
not understanding
not believing
but knowing
what is

In the stillness of silence
nothing more is needed

In silence
the richness
is abundant beyond words
Bliss is known as
pure acceptance of what is
Joy is causeless contentment
Love is all

Swimming on the surface
is fleeting
Deep diving through layers
of life into wholeness

Awareness Being
