Change is Natural and leisurely

Life sustains itself. It recycles itself. No “help” is needed.
Humans living through the mind, are so concerned about “controlling” things and “making changes” out of a particular, reduced viewpoint which does not consider the “bigger picture.”

That willingness to “willfully” change things and control events most of the time, have undesired consequences. It is the “I” exercising his “choice.”

Observe Life. There is a continuous line of changes. It does not matter how we label them (good, bad, right, wrong) those changes will maintain Life.

Observe an hourglass. Life works almost the same manner. “You” are in one side of the glass full of sand, just to move to the empty side. Once “you” are in the empty side, there will be a flip, an inversion and… “you” are back to the “full side.”

Our minds and “spirituality for the masses” are concerned in “always staying in the full side.” That is a mirage.

Collective Consciousness also moves the same way. There are few particles of sand, the pioneers going from the “full” side to the “empty.” Their perception of the “empty” side will not be understood by those only experiencing the “full” side.

Those experiencing the “full” side will be many. Because “majority rules,” their perception will be labeled as “truth” and our society will be built upon that perception.

“Which side of the hourglass is the “truth”?” That is the question of most intelligent minds. However, observe that this question is foolish. The hourglass is ONE.

In the “spiritual” circles, some are so concerned in “making the change” right away, suddenly…. That is not “real change.” That is the change envisioned by the clever mind,  the “I.” That change is only behavioral.
Change happens slowly; as the particles of sand move from one side of the hourglass to the other. That is a process. Change is built in Life.

Concerned in “getting to the empty side faster” because it is “better;” the “spiritual person” spends his Life going from one objective to the other, trying to find meaning, purpose in Life.

Observe the hourglass again. “You” will get there, but it depends where you are located around the bunch of sand. That location gives you “your” consciousness.
Yeah! “You” want to push your way in, get there faster, etc.
Now, perhaps you could see, how silly that is. “You” will get there and that place is just another experience, just like the one that you are having right now, but you are unable to appreciate, to taste, to enjoy… the “now.”

“Why?”
Because we are living in the mind. The mind does not allow for enjoyment, to surrender to the experience… Hurry up!… the “future” is important, once you get there… you will be happy… I have no time for “now.”   That is so silly!

Observe change. Appreciate it. Respect it. Embrace it. “You” will be there, “you” will move there. It is just a matter of time.

Do you see that we are all together in this?  🙂

The ever changing Truth

Sun-color

What color is the sun?
it is the million dollar question
the right answer, will get the prize
there is no “catch” in disguise!

It is red! No, yellow …
it is white as light even mellow!
those were the common answers
moving the voting pole as dancers
even orange named as a color
gave the contest a bad odor

Religions and philosophies appeared
supporting their own ideas
“Sun is red,” had greater appeal
that belief was a big deal
“Sun is yellow” had the proof
but it was nothing but a goof
“Sun is white” had no bite
among the big ideologies in fight

The contest came to an end
the judges delivered their mend:
“single answers are good but delusion
together they bring the right conclusion!”

The Sun has all those colors
for time is the incognito victor
squeezing that beloved truth
as a boa constrictor!

The truth is not a still picture
hidden in concepts and definitions
the truth is beyond all traditions

It is a continuous movie
on how a red Sun becomes orange
from light white and then yellow
just to unite all thinking fellows!

Uncover You, Uncover Me

When the Capacity to Love has been tainted by Fear
Remember-It Is still there!
Fear needs Love to be Healed
then
Unlimited Love can be Revealed

Love’s Capacity was always there
Buried under Fallacies of Fear
Underneath you’ll find the Capacity
for
Love is the Only True Reality

Feelings

feelings12

It is the story of the self looking for completeness.
It is the glue which brings everything together, as it was meant to be.

When we feel we are merged, we are in communion.
It is merging with God and everything else. A sense of appreciation of this moment as it is.
Without that “everything” then there is just a fractional experience of what could be.
It is a kiss in the cheek rather than the life-giving breath of union of completeness.
The marriage of the Sun with the Moon.
Then, the reflection of the moon in the lake can only be known with just one label: The night.

Breathe in. That is life. It is your emptiness which allows the space for fulfillment.
Breathe out. Feel the heart alive and bursting out those feelings which can only expand into the horizon of a new beginning.

Depth of feelings is bliss. The highest ecstatic and exquisite feeling coming from you. It is just you. Holy, pure, sacred.
There is no one who has the key for your happiness once you have experienced what is in you.

Life is sharing, serving; that is love. To live is to love. “Others” are in you. Union. Celebration.

A feeling has the “heart” to bring the Sun and Moon together. It has the sweetness to melt that ice of separating thoughts into nourishing flowing water, to satiate your neighbor’s thirst for love.

To live is to feel.
Communion. That is everything.

The unreachable star

unreachable

You are the far unreachable star
melting my heart with one desire
to be there, to reach to you
be part of the selected few

My day is lit with your presence
my night is just your omnipresence
that is the time where my dreams
meet your name as it seems

In the darkest moments of my life
i could see you and be fine
to be there will take time
for now, to see you is sublime

Sparkling lights are your eyes
their depth is truly a work of art
your beauty matches your heart
you are the star… among the stars!

The lullaby of Dawn

walk

In the sacred temple of dawn,
i hear her voice sweetly calling me,
“wake up little son.”

Birds chirping the new morning song
delighting the audience of countless flowers,
who applaud the advent of light in a chord
in a new day for embracing the Lord

That freshness is the aroma of life
nurturing the spirit to be alive
just as a holy scripture touches the mind
or faithful love pierces the heart

As the wind pronounces our names
the mystery of freedom still remains
for love is meant to be free
untamed, ready to break all chains

Alive.

Without inner fight.
means to behold the pristine sky
mesmerized in the reflection of its might
but only with the beauty of an open heart.

FOR ITS NOTHING BUT A BURDEN OF WASTE
A DECISION THAT WAS TAKEN IN HASTE
