When the mind is at peace,
the world too is at peace.
Nothing real, nothing absent.
Not holding on to reality,
not getting stuck in the void,
you are neither holy nor wise, just
an ordinary fellow who has completed his work.

- Layman P'ang (c. 740-808)

LoveAlways

Bob O'Hearn


When you lose touch with your 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

    START CLOSE IN  

Start close in,
don't take the second step
or the third,
start with the first
thing
close in,
the step you don't want to take.
 

Start with
the ground
you know,
the pale ground
beneath your feet,
your own
way of starting
the conversation.
 

Start with your own
question,
give up on other
people's questions,
don't let them
smother something
simple.
 

To find
another's voice
follow
your own voice,
wait until
that voice
becomes a
private ear
listening
to another.
 

Start right now
take a small step
you can call your own
don't follow
someone else's
heroics, be humble
and focused,
start close in,
don't mistake
that other
for your own.
 

Start close in,
don't take the second step
or the third,
start with the first
thing
close in,
the step you don't want to take.

Lord, you exist
as me.  Your power moves,
and I start walking.

A prior impulse is the only difference
between us.  Other than that,
everything I am is You.

14th Century North Indian mystic
