“Sometimes when I consider what tremendous consequences come from little
things, I am tempted to think there are no little things.”

  Shaking the Tree
Vine and branch we’re connected in this world
of sound and echo, figure and shadow, the leaves
contingent, roots pushing against earth. An apple
belongs to itself, to stem and tree, to air
that claims it, then ground. Connections
balance, each motion changes another. Precarious,
hanging together, we don’t know what our lives
support, and we touch in the least shift of breathing.
Each holy thing is borrowed.  Everything depends.
  ~ Jeanne Lohmann ~

How refreshing the whinny of a packhorse

unloaded of everything.

 ~ Zen saying


We do not know the weight of this "self" we are carrying

until we put it down.

from The Daily Inspiration archives Jani Roxburgh ~ The_Now2    

Stillness Speaks
When you lose touch with inner stillness, 
you lose touch with yourself.  
When you lose touch with yourself, 
you lose yourself in the world.
Your innermost sense of self, 
of who you are,
is inseparable from stillness.
This is the I Am 
that is deeper than name and form.
Stillness is your essential nature. 
What is stillness?
The inner space or awareness in which the words on this page 
are being perceived and become thoughts.  
Without that awareness,
there would be no perception, no thoughts, no world.
You are that awareness, disguised as a person.
~  Eckhart Tolle
Stillness Speaks
Jani Roxburgh ~ The_Now2    

"Your own mind is the root of samsara and nirvana. Ask yourself: Are you
good? Of course you are. Are you bad? Yes. In both cases, you are still
the same person. When you recognize the nature of your mind and become a
buddha, is that still you? Yes. Are you still the same person who was
wandering around in samsara? The answer, again, is yes. It is you. It is
this one phenomenon, your own mind, that is the root of the whole of
samsara and nirvana, but your experience of it differs according to
whether or not you've realized your true nature."

~Gyatrul Rinpoche

From the book, "Naked Awareness,' published by Snow Lion.


May all beings be happy. May they be free from suffering. May they be at peace.

   Painter within
senses have mingled

risen like dew
through the skies

painter within
colour this skin

to be revealed
with grace

one ray
this space

every bird in the forest sings

this is I
