“What bonds us is seeing the divine in and as everything and everyone. If we’re
really spiritually awake, we see something extraordinary in and as each person,
whether they know it or not. That’s the beauty of it. That’s the connection. That’s
the unity.”

~Adyashanti

There is a space within space
where darkness hides its wealth
of brilliant light.
That is where the world comes from,
and many other things too beautiful for the world
until we imagine them
in ourselves.
I know there is only One, but
God loves mirrors.
What is within the within
mirrors itself through countless faces,
all singing the name
of a hidden splendor.
That is where you and I met
before we were born,
and Christ was in Mary
like an eternal seed.

"The small man builds cages for everyone he knows.
While the sage, who has to duck his head
when the moon is low,
Keeps dropping keys all night long
for the beautiful rowdy prisoners."

Spiritual Whales

Even in cloudless skies,
Many fathoms down, it's dark.
Even in a stiff gale,
Sea depths are calm.
Whales know this,
They visit the surface, but live deep.

The timeless nonstate cannot be achieved because the mind cannot evolve
towards it. The mind can only bring you to the threshold. Awakening comes
unexpectedly when you do not wait for it, when you live in not-knowing. Only
then are you available.

OK! I granted your wish! Now look inside.
If you see, hear, think or feel anything
in particular, that's not it. :)

the lock

We are like locks, an emptiness waiting for a key to unlock us, and we act as if
we don’t know what the key is.

We say, “I don’t know what would unlock my true self.”

But we lie to ourselves. We look inside and we clearly see the form of the
emptiness, the size and shape of the key.

We know precisely what the key looks like.

Happy 804th Birthday, Beloved Rumi

I am with you now. ~ Rumi

I honour those
who try to rid themselves of any lying,
who empty the self
and have only clear being there.

~Rumi

Rumi's birthday is traditionally celebrated on Sept. 29th.

When someone is counting out gold to you
don't look at your hands or the gold...
look at the giver...

Just be quiet. Don't think."

When we quiet our thinking, we can hear what our heart has to say.

September Meditation

I do not know if the seasons remember their history or if the days and
nights by which we count time remember their own passing.
I do not know if the oak tree remembers its planting or if the pine
remembers its slow climb toward sun and stars.
I do not know if the squirrel remembers last fall's gathering or if the
bluejay remembers the meaning of snow.
I do not know if the air remembers September or if the night remembers
the moon.
I do not know if the earth remembers the flowers from last spring or if
the evergreen remembers that it shall stay so.
Perhaps that is the reason for our births -- to be the memory for
creation.
Perhaps salvation is something very different than anyone ever expected.
Perhaps this will be the only question we will have to answer:
"What can you tell me about September?"
