Taste Silence

Life is
continually
weeding
the garden
of individuality
 
Consumed
in reverence
of the exquisite
exactness
of divine
perfection
 
She dances
with prowess
as Everything
Dying into
the freedom
of true living
 
I love you
She says
Planting the words
on this tongue
Echoing her
heart song
from these lips
 
I am you
She says
Every breath
Every move
Every sound
Every feeling
The world of play
appearing
as a perpetual
dance of
surrender
Being
reabsorbed
 
Bowing into
what is
without a prayer
Emptiness
inhabited
only by its own
knowing
 
Be filled
wholly
with
the Love
that you are
Disappear
into your Self
Taste
Silence

Fierce Grace

 

What will it take
to rest
all your weight on to the foot
that walks the divine life?

What will it take
to saturate the
fear of living
With the peace
of loving presence?
To dance in
the freedom of reality

Dive deeper
than this surface
of mind that thinks
it knows something
Stop questioning
the grace that life
is spilling out
and rest
Listen
Be

What will it take
to feel,
to truly feel
it all
Right down to the
transparent
bones of clarity
And admit
you know not
what to do
Know not how to
live
Crack open

Rest your forehead
to the ground
Bow at the feet of life
In the glory of
your personal
disempowerment
Meet the true power
that you are
The richness
of love
that swoons in the
heart of Being

Allow praise
to dance on the
tip of your tongue
Allow gratitude to tumble
from your lips
Trust the
the idiosyncrasies
of life
are happening
for you
by you
are you
This is IT

Fall into the silence that is
roaring with aliveness
Drowning out
the voice in
your head that wants you
to dance a small dance
In a circle
around and around

What will it take
to recognize
that life is
blessing you with
the honour
of unfolding
from your smallness
into the largesse of Being
Whole

Allow awe to take up residence
Be taken
by your unknowing
May the tears of surrender
swirl into a river of flowing love
that carries you
right to the heart of your
inner most Being

Just This

Fall at the feet
of Being
Dare to
fall off your perch
Use your wings
to fly
Actually fly
into the infinity
of You
Surrender your
position as
a somebody
Be a nobody
Fall into your Self
Into the emptiness
of Now
Be free
Truly
Utterly
Free

 

 


 

Just This
A mandala crafted
of living elements
Creating patterns
of divine beauty
from hues of light
In a cathedral
of silence
the value of
Nothing
being lived
Glistening
in awe

 

 


 

Life is amazingly
gorgeously in love
with itself
In awe of itself
Dying into itself
And what is that
but what is
Pure divine
causeless
contentment

Just this

Devotion Is

In the willingness
to be so fully undone
For all strategies to end
Surrender is here

To see and be seen
in the light
of what is

To rest
as undefended
presence
at the feet of Life

Being humbled
again and again
As threads
of defense
dissolve
and the true power
of Being
is embodied
Life living itSelf

A pure power
that wants nothing
A power
that says
I don’t know
there is no knowing
there is only this

And the eternal heart
beats in
silent reverence

Devotion Is

Authentic Allowing

Make no mistake
There is no goal
There is no path
Your quest ends
Here
In the
absolute
authentic
allowing of
this moment’s
raw expression
 
In the deepest surrender
to what is
the lens of
limited focus
softens into
unbounded emptiness
Revealing
the infinity of you
 
If you truly desire
to know
your Self
Awaken to
Honesty
Let go of everything
that keeps you from
authentic
Being
 
Allow the awakeness
of the moment
to meet your
wholehearted
openness
 
Give up all roles
Surrender all masks
Melt
into the radiant gaze
of wholeness
 

Awakening is Happening

Awakening is happening… in consciousness. It is not the person that awakens. Consciousness wakes up to it Self as never having been a separate person. Awakening is not personal. So trust awakening is happening and includes you, it cannot not touch you. You are conscious awareness. You are melting into oneness and all you can ‘do’ is be so fully present with life as it is and not resist or turn away and life will offer you every opportunity to merge into remembering the oneness that you have always been. Self realisation is to see your Self from the perspective of wholeness.

 

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

 

Divine Mother

Divine Mother
Your grace is
my heart song
This life is your pulse
I am your vessel
being played
in perfect flow


Feast and be
nourished
through this body
Through this heart
I live your mercy and
I know your love


At your lotus feet
I bow
This devotion I am
is the flow of
your breath
All that I see is your
beauty
your creation
your golden light
spinning into Being


Everything I do
is a silent prayer
inviting your pristine purity
into every atom
of Being
so that I may serve
you more
I reside
in you
you in me


Glorious One
Mother of All
that is
Divine Mother
this heart of light
is yours

 

Musings from this moment…

You are awareness. Between two thoughts you are. Between two breaths you are. Behind all that moves and changes there is one awareness, ever present awareness you are. The silence between sounds you are. Rest with curiosity in the unmoving stillness. Dissolve into the silence behind, between, beyond all that comes and goes and you are…. that!

 

———————–

 

Everything is both right and wrong or neither right or wrong! The world of existence can be viewed from a myriad of perspectives. The aperture of seeing can be very small or open to infinity. From a separate self to the Absolute and beyond… Each perspective is it’s own perfection. All one awareness. There is nothing here that is not Divine Mother consciousness, God, Source, Light…. as the aperture opens in awakening, the deepening of this knowing rests and love and acceptance are revealed as the pure nature of awareness. Compassion is revealed as the natural loving presence of Divine Mother in all embracing mercy for her children. There is no opinion to have. Everything is welcome as everything that appears is spun from the light of divinity… everything… and this can be known always in the presence of the moment, right here what is, is. We are divinity, Being human, the expression of what is, but really these are all just words… there is only ONE with no other, no second, only ONE… and you are that whatever perspective you perceive, see, feel or experience from. All inclusive awareness… ONE!

There is oil product just below the surface on hundreds of thousands of acres in Alberta.There is explosive growth in the oil field areas around Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. The oil extracted from this area is the product that would travel through the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline.(Photo by Michael S. Williamson/The Washington Post

The Now of Now

 

Essence is
alive
speaking of
what is
already here

Of how we
over complicate
everything
Life is simple
and we are the creators
of ‘not easy’

Yes, there are
tools and techniques
to deepen
awareness
We can question
our thoughts
and discover our
bodies as light
As limitless
consciousness
silent and free

But even the knowing
of Self as awareness
is it’s own emptiness

I am is
Amness
Isness

Reality
Totality
Absolute

This moment
Only this moment
Now

We travel through life times
Through universes
Through bodies
and stories
Through realisations
and experiences
Through seeing, knowing
and awakening
to find

What is is
Always was
There is nothing
that separates anything
except the searching
for something
other
Something more
extraordinary than pure
simple joyful
what is ness

Fall in to Now
Truly
Fall into Now
Be
Right
Here
and all searching
is over
This is it!

Too ordinary
to be real?
Prepare to be astonished!
