What Is

Between
the still mountain
and the ocean’s
dynamic aliveness
pure Being
Life living itself
only knowing
this
what Is
one with
no other
wholeness
fulfilled
Silent presence
flowing as grace
What sees
only sees Itself
Only this
What Is

 

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

 

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!

FORT MCMURRAY, AB - JUNE 20: What may look like a common forest is actually part of the oil sands oil field. 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

Love Is

Passing through
the door of stillness
We discover the sanctuary
of infinite freedom
While life is shaking
at it’s very foundations
Being’s silent presence
holds strong
Unconcerned
in quiet knowing
Deeper than the
surface quaking
 
Heart rests
Gazing upon the
simple beauty
of a flower
Sacred happening
resplendent
in glorious detail
Hummingbird joyfully free
is nourished by sweetness
The same divine nectar
I am drinking in
 
The bee of mind
alights here
Falling in and in
to the ever benevolent
arms of grace
The holiness of Now
lands in the blossom
of heart’s petals
Mother’s mercy
flowing as faith
in all that is
A single tear falls
Within it
universes dance
Love spins a web
of it’s eternal light
and this is
what I am
Everywhere
In all things
Love Being
Love Is

Blessing of Now

Enjoy
A day of grace
Divine Being
This moment
is the only gift 
you need
Rest here
in the blessing of
Now

Know your Self
as the pure light
of conscious awareness
Shining bright
Whatever the story on
the surface says
You are whole
You are life
You are love

 

The Dance

One foot steps
courageously another follows
entering
a swirling dance
of destruction

Awakening to Self
baring all
to the naked truth
of Being
So intimate
nothing can be hidden
In this light
everything is revealed
beyond the skin
of contracted comfort

And as the foundations
on which the house
of me is built
tumble into
dust
Blown into the
wind of all that is
Leaving your
raw aliveness
floating free
in a mysterious void

Opening to Self
is a bareback ride on a
wild horse
Untameable freedom
calls for
immeasurable devotion
Essential divinity
is the ineffable gift
of deep diving
Free falling
and trusting
truth has wings
or there is no ground

Spacious awareness
Mysterious beauty
Haunting call
Where am I now?
Fall in and in
to emptiness
where I stands no more
Grace took
your place
and all that remains
is a shimmering
glint in the eye
of Being

Here

Talk no longer about it

Look no longer for it

Be here

Discover

You are it

Live it now

simply resting

in the stillness

of what is

Nothing to change

just stop and notice

what is here

in present

moment awareness

 

On the surface

activity

experience

dynamic flow

of life living itself

All taking place

in you

 

You are unbounded

free

a silent field

still as can be

holding it all

animating it all

pervading it all

with your silent essence

 

You are that

which does not come and go

that which is silent in nature

awareness is silent

silence is aware

 

So rest here

go nowhere

who you are is the space

your thoughts are taking place in

your curiosity

your inquiry

is in you

like an elephant

in the room

 

Look behind

there you are

look inside

you are here

rest right here and fall in

to yourself

between your words

in the pause

as in breath

becomes out breath

here you are

 

Living simply

in this moment

no where else

but here
