is it okay - do people think - if the message works
for a person - can we just use the message and NOT
shoot the golly durned messager?

is it totally neccessary to join in the cult and
inspect and analyze and devote oneself entirely to
a GURU - lock stock and barrel - just to adapt his
teaching(s) - whether plagarized or not? what is
the benefit of that, as opposed to just collecting
the tidbits of wisdom from hither and yon as one
skips merrily along one's own path?





earth turns to dust
dust to wind
twisting, turning
life in a spin

touching nothing
holding not
letting go
never caught

twisting, swirling
love on fire
burning in the
wind of no desire
flickering in and out
of time
i am the wind
and the sky is mine.



within the tower of my making
walls stand firm and tall
until a light was seen
a glow that was bright
and as my soul sang to me
she called me forth
and thunder rolled
and tower fell
the wall came tumbling down

i stand alone at this new place
until i see a face, a form
out of the sky of clouds and blue
created here for me, for you

with love and joy
it opened my heart
to all that i did fear
and with a kiss of mystery
it flowed back into me

free now from walls and towers,
free to roam the world of mine
i am the beauty i feared the most
the love that is, the joy that's me
i am free as wind and sea
and so my friend are thee



Get the Blame Straight

Understanding the physics of God,
His Indivisible Nature,

Makes every universe and atom confess:

I am just a helpless puppet that cannot dance
Without the movement of His hand.

Dear ones, This curriculum tonight is for the
advanced And will

Get all the blame straight,

End the mental





Brain -

("The Gift" - versions of Hafiz by Daniel Ladinsky)



Just Be! In the Now! That is all that is required.

Don't let your thoughts wander into the past or
into the future. Nor into day dreams or worries.
Pull back your mind into the now. Let your thoughts
come and go. But do not let them start forming
associations and pulling you hither and thither.
Don't even ask yourself who you are. You are there
in the now. You only get lost in thoughts. Use
mindfulness throughout the day to stay in the now.

Just accept whatever you find in the now. Don't try
to change it, improve it, or resist it. The world
is as God intended it to be. Who are we to complain
or daydream about putting things straight. It
cannot be done, just accept it.

It is as simple as that. Just Be! In the Now!



black and white
hunting wild cat and racing grey hound
kids parading and masquerading
penny whistles and melodies
sweet fragrance is 'one' and incense
christmas and Inca ruins
faith and belief
goals and dreams
understanding and realization
gardens, trails, and homesteads
teaching children at home, living, and experience
patience and compassion
time to breathe and room to think

a question from the silence of my solitude
my place of peace and suffering
that protects
from the imaginations of desire
and the promise of fulfillment
that hurts when it speaks
while letting go the name of love
knowing you may return to be mine
and praying against hope
that you are safe
in fear of knowing
that I may not interfere
unless you ask
for which I must direct you to another
and pray for a return

the directions we are from to here
and the me you may never know
and yet, of these,
you know me best
now, and forever,
as you wish,
if you wish
these words,
may never be known
yet spoken
may never be lost
like trees that mark
but one way home
