Bernie Glassman

"We cook, eat, and appreciate the meal, whereas if we just sit around bitching about all the things we don't have and not eating anything, we'd starve.  And that goes for life, too.  Look at the ingredients you have, make the best meal possible, and offer it.  Don't forget to offer it.  If you make the meal just for yourself, you don't get the same pleasure."

Jeanette Winterson

"I understand that trouble is just something that has been filed in the wrong place.  That is what Jung was explaining of course - as the chaos of our unconscious contents drive to find their rightful place in the index of consciousness."

"I was going to be away, free, or so it seemed, but you always take it with you.  It takes much longer to leave the psychic place than the physical place."

Buddha Smiles

I have no idea.
     Truth.
          Complexities.
Seven Chakras.
Twelve Steps.

Questions.
     Discoveries.
          Acceptance.

If I listen to you,
     Can you hear me?

Enlightened!
     Enlightened to What?
          Enlighten Me.

Reality Is Enlightenment.

Accepting Self.
Accepting Others.

So simple.
No mystery.

Nothing to learn.
Nothing to teach.

Matter is neither created nor destroyed.

I matter.
You matter.
All matter.

What is here now
     has always been.

Big Bang!
Let There Be Light!

All is created from the same.

God.
     You.
         Me.

The Earth, Sun and Moon.
The Dirt, Trees and Water.

When I die
I become
What I once was.
     What I still am.
          What I will always be.

I am you
and
You are me.

God.  Light.  Love.  All.

You cannot create me.
I cannot destroy you.

Linked. Bound. Tied. All.

DO YOU KNOW HOW GOOD YOU SMELL?

Movement in the mind
Conscious shift
Conscious split.

Split from the lies,
Dust removed from the eyes.

Unblocked: From the Lies we tell ourselves.

The lie of separation.  Differentiation.

Words.  Thoughts. Actions. Voice.

The throat is unblocked by the Truth.
The light moves up and through and out.
into...

Reality is Heaven.
Heaven is Bliss.
Bliss is Real.
Real is now.

There is no pie in the sky.

Suffering is the human condition.

Can you suffer
     and accept?

Buddha Smiling.

Knowing how precious
this moment is.

This moment is reality
and we will never exist again.

The me that started does not finish.

My two year old Me,
does not exist.
That person does not exist.

The Me of yesterday does not exist.

Only me, now, this moment.
Only you, now, this moment.

Enlightenment is not an opening
of the seventh chakra to the cosmos.

It is not floating on the ninth cloud.

You cannot be Saved,
from yourself.

Exist. Now.  In This Moment. Only Once. Forever Gone.  Forever More.

Accepting
Smiling

Huntress

Huntress

I look across the open plain
sun burning – glinting.
I see the wildebeest
chasing the lion…
Swarm intelligence
propelling her forward
and releasing her.
No longer bound to her
instinctual herding principle.
She has awakened.
She has left her children
to be protected by her clan.
She will no longer fight
only when attacked.
She will safeguard our future…
the lion senses this power shift
and is overwhelmed.
My huntress has caught her prey.
She rips into Screaming flesh.
The sound eternally seared onto
my consciousness.
She ravages her kill
and
I cannot avert my gaze.
The wildebeest looks up at me
and whispers…..
mutiny.

Alice Walker

"The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any."

Think Less... Do More

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition." ~Steve Jobs~ 

"There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so." ~William Shakespeare~

 "When you begin to worry, go find something to do. Get busy being a blessing to someone; do something fruitful. Talking about your problem or sitting alone, thinking about it, does no good; it serves only to make you miserable. Above all else, remember that worrying is totally useless. Worrying will not solve your problem." ~Joyce Meyer~
