There are so many people who will only love another if that person fits their exact ideas. If you stray from that, you instantly fall from grace. In reality it’s not possible for any of us to meet our own expectations for ourselves, how much more so the expectations of others.

Beyond time

I experienced a wonderful moment. A deer sprang in front of my car while driving home. Before a single thought, my car was already coming to a stop. There was just the wonderous action of the deer, beyond the mind.

I just wanted to tell all my friends to be as safe as possible, we have entered the most dangerous point in our pandemic yet. Viral loads are 1K times greater, giving the body less time to mount a response. If you have a mask, N95’s are best. Love to all. <3

Glittering worlds turn on the wheel. I watch silently, as mercury waves crash the shore. Walking along, I breathe softly, as cosmic remnants, sing on the winds of time. Just for now, I let go of all I thought was me.

A state of bare awareness that is pure and traceless arises as a perception in which there is no separation between outside and in. A state in which all discerning falls away. It manifests as a condition of evenness, spaciousness and all pervading immensity.

While walking it seems there is no separation, while looking out the scenery & I fall away. At times there is clarity & presence. While taking pictures, no longer distracted, subject & object fall, samadhi comes easy. No matter the action or task, the great matter is at hand.

They build their houses with sand, and they play with empty shells. With withered leaves they weave their boats and smilingly float them on the vast deep. Children have their play on the seashore of worlds.

They know not how to swim, they know not how to cast nets. Pearl-fishers dive for pearls, merchants sail in their ships, while children gather pebbles and scatter them again. They seek not for hidden treasures, they know not how to cast nets.

I find it shocking to hear people calling for segregation of 50% of the population because they aren’t willing to participate in a medical experiment. There are nearly 11K reports of death from the vaccine in the US, our children developing heart conditions.

The reason the virus has spread again, was because the CDC told the vaccinated to stop wearing masks. They told us that the vaccinated could not spread the virus. But, the science says they can spread it just as easily. https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2021/07/30/provincetown-covid-outbreak-vaccinated/?utm_campaign=wp_main&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter

VAERS released new data bringing the total to 463,457 reports of adverse events following Covid vaccines, including 10,991 deaths and 48,385 serious injuries between December 14th 2020 and July 9th 2021. https://vaers.hhs.gov/

Since April 2021, increased cases of myocarditis and pericarditis have been reported in the United States after mRNA COVID-19 vaccination (Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna), particularly in adolescents and young adults. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/clinical-considerations/myocarditis.html

Dr. Charles Hoffe vaccinated his patients. They started getting sick, when he tried to speak up he was threatened with suspension. He is now suspended. He tested his vaccinated patients, 60% of them have micro blood clots. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sIWb9GTbbE&t=15s

Those who have been sickened are not allowed to share their stories. The truth is being censored by our government and tech giants. Why on earth are we not allowed to know about this? Those sickened are begging to be heard. https://youtu.be/6mxqC9SiRh8

Hero doctors like Dr. Pierre Kory told the world about life saving therapeutics such as Ivermectin, that could have ended the pandemic, with full science to back them, and they were silenced and censored time and time again. https://covid19criticalcare.com/

We shouldn’t be afraid to speak up. Science, and our voices, should not be silenced.

When you meet someone for the first time without even talking to them you already know if you like them or not. It is like something in you read the person beyond what your mind is aware of.

 

August 05 2021

You don’t remember you had this dream, then out of nowhere something makes you remember. You don’t need to think it through in a linear fashion, it all comes through at once. Same goes for recalling a memory. This is the quantum nature of mind.

There is an evening hush as night falls, the last of dusty pink fades from the horizon. The path through trees winds round. With each step, the trees, universe and I fall away. For just this moment, I am free.

It’s called evidence based medicine. We are supposed to follow the science, as new evidence becomes available we are supposed to adjust our decision making process to follow the evidence. To tell us we can no longer do that, we just have to blindly obey what our leaders tell us, even if scientifically it is wrong, makes no sense. That is an abandonment of science.

For the Light bringers

 

July 28 2021

As for mingling stillness and thinking, stillness is to rest quietly in the state of empty and luminous mind nature. From within that state a thought suddenly occurs, by looking directly into it, it completely disappears into the continuity of this mind nature.

~ Vajrayoginī

 

July 27 2021

Glimmers

 

July 27 2021

Existence is nothing but motion and change. Motion and change penetrate the entire universe. They are the life of trees, the life of winter. They are your life, too. So if you examine your life, you will find the whole universe therein.

Your life manifests as the activity of the Whole. The total activity of the Whole manifests as you.

~ Katagiri Roshi

 

July 27 2021

Nature is dynamic, always moving, changing constantly. But the movements of nature are not reckless. Beyond our ideas and concepts, there is a principle at work behind the movement. There is total functioning, the working of the whole.

~ Katagiri Roshi

 

July 27 2021

We have to learn to realize what we know directly, before we fall into thought.

Until we get there

 

July 26 2021

A misperception can cause us to imagine things that are not real. Once we realize that it was a misperception it dissolves. The realness of an idea is dependent upon our mind.

 

July 26 2021

We can find various kinds of concentration. For instance, in wintertime you put on winter clothes before you go out, yet you’re not aware that you have put on your winter clothes. You have become one with your winter clothes; you have melted into your object. This is samadhi.

— Katagiri Roshi

 

July 26 2021

If you don’t cling to a particular object, you will become free of the subject—you will become free of yourself. This is becoming one with your object.

For long the powerful have enslaved the people, living off of them. They look down on the poor, but only exist because of them. Empires built on the hopes, dreams, blood sweat and tears of the common man. The people dream of basics, while the powerful swim in gold.

 

July 25 2021

Rest your mind like a sea free from waves quietly in the unfabricated and spontaneously present state of the empty and luminous nature of awareness.

~ Vajrayoginī

 

July 25 2021

Let the non arising nature of your mind, as empty and luminous awareness, this primordially pure and spontaneously present essence, remain in a state of the fourfold resting of body speech and mind.

~ Vajrayoginī

 

July 24 2021

It’s not certain

 

July 24 2021

This mind of mine, maker of worlds. She gives rise to phantasms, and holds to them dearly. Ethereal mind, born of the ancient stream, dreams without end. Who will sooth her cosmic lullabies, drifting like diamonds in the heart of the night?

 

July 24 2021

In the darkness, I can see the faintest glimmers of light. The cool night air permeates my soul as my heart drifts through the starry sky. There is comfort here, in the song of night. In the silent breath of evergreens, the song bird dreams away. Midnight embrace, you and I are not two, and in this place even one, you will not find.

 

July 24 2021

I will not return again, you & I are not two. Who will return to whom? Dear Mother, I hear the beat of your heart, in that song the universe sings without end. Mountains rise & fall, stars give birth, breathing in me & seeing through my eyes. Something like returning, never was.

 

July 24 2021

The last return

 

July 23 2021

Dancing flames of water under this bridge. Mosquitos join the fun, as the leaves slowly dance to the floor. The sound of branches falling sound out, as I wander the stream.

In the Light of her Presence

 

July 23 2021

Honestly society has become pretty sick and twisted, and doing a good job and dividing us in every way. Now we are blaming people for dying from covid because they didn’t get an experimental vaccine that has killed thousands of people.

Not only that big tech is censoring the truth, thousands have been disabled by the vaccine. If they try to tell their story it is removed as disinformation. It is one thing to silence disinformation but another to not allow someone to tell their true story.

People have gone mad. Where is the humanity? It is like they are blinded, and swept up in wave. How on earth are we as a society at a point where we blame the people who die from a pandemic virus? It is true madness.

 

July 22 2021

This old logging road, new life abounds. The heat of a summer day drowning out the sound of birds. I rest in the cool, as I watch the light fall.

The sweetness of a memory

 

July 19 2021

There I walked on these shores, in a sea of light, and cresting waves. Breathing in the sweet air, my soles touched the earth. There in my heart a smile was born, as the cries of water birds filled the air.

 

July 19 2021

The voice of water

 

July 19 2021

From the light of a billion suns, we rise in the heart of the mother. Running through the field of dreams. The great wheel reflecting her spokes in a sea of stars. The voice of water sounds the sky, as I wander through the ancestral stream. Heart of the elders, reborn once more.

 

July 19 2021

Dreaming the day

 

July 18 2021

Ideas, ghost like mirages, I cling to them. Try as I might, the moment cannot be held. I grasp as it flows like dust in the wind. Dreams turn the universe, as the present moves in an endless steam. Holding the now, an impossible feat. For now only exists as an idea in the mind.

 

July 18 2021

Just one more time

 

July 18 2021

This lifetime passes like the weeping clouds Where dance the lightning garlands of the Lord of Death, And from them, day and night, there falls An endless rain to bathe the shoots That grow in the three levels of existence.

~ Longchenpa

 

July 18 2021

The first star twinkles on the horizon, as a single bird makes his last call. The comfort of twilight fills the air. I head for home watching each step, as I pass the warm glow of lights along the way.

 

July 18 2021

In the Light of you

 

July 17 2021

In the dim light, I walked this old road, my feet touching the earth. Pine tree offerings littering in golds and red. Deep green arms comforting the way.

 

July 17 2021

 

July 16 2021

Madness has taken hold of the world. We live in a time where we sacrifice the few for the many. Thousands dying & sickened from the vaccine, children w heart damage, like human sacrifices. Asking others to die so that you may live. Society has found this to be acceptable.

 

July 16 2021

This old road glistening by the light of the sun, follows me wherever I go. The mountain streams flow like thunder, as the flight of countless birds fill the sky. The pine tree grows, on a lonely mountain side, as I hum this tune bathed in the light of stars.

 

July 16 2021

The heart of Everything

 

July 16 2021

We should not mine the moon. It is the heart of the earth, without it life would cease to be. If we disturb the mass of the moon, we cannot know what will happen. Just look at how the wobble effects weather & the gravity affects the tides & mantle.

 

July 15 2021

The sweet taste of emptiness fleeting like a dream. Where can this ancient self be found when the mind drops away? All of creation beating in the heart of a single blade of grass. And the ten thousand things become none at all, as you take this breath and breathe the sea.

“Listen Sariputra, this body itself is Emptiness, and Emptiness itself is this body. This body is not other than Emptiness and Emptiness is not other than this body. The same is true of feelings, perceptions, mental formations, and consciousness.

“Listen Sariputra, all phenomenon bear the mark of Emptiness; their true nature is the nature of no birth no death, no being no non-being, no defilement no purity, no increasing no decreasing.”

Masterpiece

 

June 30 2021

We perceive space and matter, as substance or lack there of, rather than an idea of it. We make reality of phantasms, that fall through our hands like grains of sand. Time and time again we watch the waves rise and fall, attributing the designation, “wave”. Again and again the wave preaches the truth endlessly.

Here at the base of these mountain ridges covered in snow, I send the love in my heart out to all beings.

 

June 26 2021

Whatever we may think about this moment, our practice is just to return to it. This moment is where all beings exist. Even though we have doubts and fears, even though we ask, “Why do I have to die?” no answer appears. Only this moment is Real. There is no escaping this moment. All beings—including doubt and fear—drop off in this moment.

Dear Mother Earth, I just want to say thank you for every day that I have had here, especially the moments where I got to love others, or had clarity of mind, and comfort. Thank you to everyone who has ever been my friend, and shown me love and decency, you are appreciated more than any words could ever express. We do not know if tomorrow will come, so I wanted to make sure I said it one more time. Love to all. <3

Phantasms move on the great wheel, churning about as me and mine. A fantasy, a mirage like dream. Caught by this reflection I bask in her splendor. I hold these ghosts and do not let them go. These appearances, I hold them to be my own, as they slip from my very hands.

June 13 2021

Here, I am home with the sound of the wind, moving through the trees of old. I listen quietly to the tales thus gone, and those yet to be. I decipher them like magic runes written in the ether. They write in my heart and move through my soul as an ancient wind.

The flame, in fact, can never light itself.

And why? Because the darkness never dims it!

Something that’s by nature blue has never of itself imposed

A blueness on its non-blue self.

~ Shantideva, from the Bodhicharyavatara

Borders are an idea made by man, no matter your color of skin, decoration on your flag, I see us the same. We are human beings who just want to live our lives in peace and comfort. I will not hate another because they were born on the other side of an imaginary line.

In the forest the very air is tinted green as it mingles with the sound of chattering birds. I join in the chorus of light and song as my feet touch the earth. The ancient song goes on without end.

How far does love go? To the ends of time, I say. The universe sings of it night and day, the stars play in the heart of children, and dance in flowering fields, while birds play her notes, on the cosmic instruments of time. The ceaseless stream moves unhindered.

To me war is madness. Wars are fought for the greed of the few at the expense of the many. These days there are no just wars. Our children are sent off to die, and the innocent on other shores pay with their lives by the millions, while those who sent them there sip their tea.

To truly honor those who have lost their lives, perhaps we could end all senseless wars, and ensure that it never happens again. To glorify war is madness.

The Asuras kicked up the dust and darkened the horizon. The sound of horses ready for battle filled the skies as the crack of the whip cut the air. Dreaming, dreaming into the long night, as she sleeps in a bed of flowers, spinning in a sea of stars. Oh to awaken, ode to life.

The unwritten poem gleams in her eyes, as her footprints wash away in the glistening sands of time. What great burst of starlight told of her, as the suns of heaven danced in the vast? There on the shores of Life, the mountains of old paid homage to the sound of cresting waves.

 

May 28 2021

I have no poetry to offer you, as the sun beats my weary heart, I walk slowly leaving footprints in the glistening sands of time. My tears fall as a river moving to the sea, as I look to the sky with a heart full of love. The unwritten poem, goes out forever.

 

May 28 2021

Rising from the sea the great mountains of time drift on the cosmic notes, as the waves dance with light. Beings move in the deep while the song of the universe plays without end. The strings of birth and death resonate, flashing with light in the heart of every star.

Time has gone round and the mirror of the sun gleams in the eyes of a child. Your laughter and tears dancing in the wind of memory, and fading in the melody of beating hearts. This day too will pass, as sure as the morning light fills the sky. Open your heart and your eyes, time waits for none.

 

May 22 2021

I was waiting for you at the edge of time, as the midnight moon cast her pale beam. I danced among the heavens in a sea of light. I pulsed in the beat of every heart, and was the breath of all that lived. I cried in every tear, and lapped the shores of the great ocean of life.

It was always this way

The black raven was celebrating the coming of rain. He called out from the treetops echoing off the canyon walls. The smell of earth & ions filled the air. I walked one step at a time as the rain began to fall, the sound filling every quarter. I smiled peacefully all soaking wet.

The sky became night and I became a sea of stars. I watched and waited as the earth turned in the vastness of space. An orchestra of cricket song filled the heavens, as the spring flowers & scent of pine perfumed my very soul. The beating heart of time blooming as far as the eye could see.

Love knows no bounds. All the love that has ever been or will be pours in an infinite stream. Radiating from the heart of every living being in the ten directions & three times. Every mote of dust, star, or blade of grass sings of it. The heart of the universe moves.

 

May 11 2021

 

May 07 2021

It’s dark out now, the velvet sky is brimming with stars as far as the eye can see. The scent of pines fills the air, as I sip my tea. The birds are sleeping, dreaming of tomorrow, as we turn in the vastness of space. Soon the birds will celebrate the coming of light, their song reaching the heavens.

If we are so lucky, we will see one more day, and get the chance to enjoy the beauty of spring one more time. We do not know how many more moments we will get to experience, and that makes every second that much more precious. I hope your day is filled with beauty and the joy of life.

It seems to me that no matter what side of the aisle people are on, there is so much violence, and hatred. Politics have torn us apart, destroying everything that makes us human. I watch people hate, in the name of ending hate. It is a strange predicament.

 

April 13 2021

Life in our form exists because conditions are sufficient. If we destroy those conditions, we will cease to be. It took so long for conditions to be just as they are. How many stars gave rise to the beating of our hearts? We are children of the cosmos, and the Earth is our home.

 

April 13 2021

Let not a person revive the past, or on the future build his hopes. For the past has been left behind, and the future has not been reached. Instead with insight let him see each presently arisen state. Let him know that and be sure of it. Invincibly, unshakeably.

Today the effort must be made, tomorrow death may come, who knows? No bargain with mortality, can keep him and his hordes away. But one who dwells thus ardently, relentlessly, by day, by night- it is he, the peaceful sage has said, who has had a single excellent night.

~ The Buddha, from the Middle Length Discourses Maha Kaccana, and One Single Excellent Night

Childhood ocean memory: My father said, “we have to watch the sun go down, and stay up all night to watch it come up over the horizon in the morning.” We stayed awake as we were bathed in starlight, & mesmerized by the moonglow reflecting on the cresting waves.

The waves were powerful, you could feel them reverberate the earth as they crashed the shore. That night we walked the beach in the darkness of night, chasing fireflies, as my father sang to us three daughters, the song from the little mermaid cartoon, “under the sea”.

Bodhidharma sat facing the wall. The Second Patriarch stood in the snow. He cut off his arm and presented it to Bodhidharma, crying, “My mind has no peace as yet! I beg you, master, please pacify my mind!”

“Bring your mind here and I will pacify it for you,” replied Bodhidharma. “I have searched for my mind, and I cannot take hold of it,” said the Second Patriarch. “Now your mind is pacified,” said Bodhidharma.

In the movement of things there is silence. In the place where the whole universe moves, not a word is spoken. Round and round she churns on the tides of creation. There the sky breathes her light in the root of a tree, and the wind moves the pines to the sweet lullaby of time.

March 14 2021

As my footsteps touched the earth, the love flowed from my heart in an infinite stream. A cool wind moved across the water, gently distorting the reflection. The diamond light danced on the shores, as the golden arms of the sun, gave light to the darkness.

Calcifediol, vitamin D derivative in treatment of Covid, amazing results. https://youtu.be/oYK9-zvJF_k

When our body makes vitamin D it goes from the skin to the liver to be converted, there it is turned into Calcifediol, from there it goes to the kidneys, and turns into the hormone that our body uses. It takes 1 to 2 weeks for the Liver to convert it.

It’s important for us to have normal vitamin D levels before we ever get sick in the first place. But for those who don’t, there is a derivative that skips the liver process, so it can be converted right away. It needs to be given early, at time of admission, before ARDS.

It reduced the chance of death by 64%, and had zero side effects. This is something that every medical facility in the world should be aware of. Many are dying needlessly. Science is being suppressed, and people are paying with their lives.

February 09 2021

When touching love deeply it is a doorway to the infinite. Touching love feels like forever. This love is not just experienced between lovers. It sings from the entire universe without remainder. All that is required is touching life deeply.

 

February 09 2021

This small glittery heart ornament is one of my most valued possessions, given to me by my grandmother. No matter where I live, I always hang it where I can see it. She is no longer here in the form we once knew her. But, I see glimpses of her every day.

Sometimes when I look in the mirror, or the sound of my laughter. Or something someone says. She has been reborn in so many ways, if only we know how to look.

What to do, what to do, little puddle? When the blue sky becomes a velvet starry night. Where will you find your “self”? Look, look, you are dancing in the trees, & singing in the bird, you are shining from the sun, & dancing in every drop of rain from the rivers to the sea.

I am the blue sky

 

February 07 2021

In winters cold, love blooms in every drop of rain, it blooms in the still waters of reflecting sky, and sleeps quietly and patiently in the heart of the tree. Come morning, the birds will sing of it to the sky. In the velvet starry night it will bloom in a cascade of Light.

Taking this step, the mind becomes quiet, the filter of “I” falls away. How limited the world is, when it is filtered by the mind. Taking this step, the whole universe shows itself, just as it is. How wonderous it is, to see reality as it is, if only for a moment.

For how long were you sleeping in that star? You traveled so far, from the snowy peaks, to the tears in the eyes of new born baby. You have touched every heart, given birth to beings of the deep, in the great ocean of time. And, on this day you dance before me in a drop of rain.

It’s not our leaders who will change the world, it is you and me. Change begins with us, only we can do it. We wait for a leader, who will change the world, while it crumbles to the ground.

Listening to the voice of water, she finds a way without any hindrance of mind. Born of the cosmos, she sings in the heart of every bird, and reaches for the sky in the arms of every tree. She see’s with the eyes of her beloved, and dances with the soul of the wind.

The great compassionate one

January 29 2021

The reed giver, spoke with the voice of water. The oracle of time spoke with the voice of rain, and the waves lapped the shores of eternity. Round and round the great wheel churned, pouring from the heart of every man. The great mountains, ground to dust uttering truth.

In the space of my being the snow falls softly on the highest peaks, the seas of time crash on the cosmic shores of diamond light. Laughter and tears sound out, the tumultuous voice, the heart of humanity, as the notes of the song bird fill the sky with delight.

Making an end to suffering isn’t so much about removing the events that cause suffering, the laws of nature won’t allow for that. What it really means is how we will react to those events and feelings.

At first it is out of our hands, because our reactions are conditionally produced. However, that conditioning can be purposefully transformed. Sometimes a powerful moment of understanding is capable of transforming them in a flash.

Wandering out in the dark among the great pines with bows weighed down with snow. I thought, snow is love, just as the Sun gives us life, so too does the ice. I then quieted my mind and just allowed the snow to fall. My warm heart breathing in the cold of night.

 

January 26 2021

Breathing in, I see myself as still waters.

Breathing out, I reflect things as they truly are.

A soft rain fell in the woods, I stood among the great pines looking to the sky. A soft breeze moved through shimmering the drops like diamonds. My mind let go, seeing all of them dancing to the song of the wind. Each drop of light reflecting the whole.

Once upon a time, the Buddha gave a silent sermon. He held up a single flower, out of the entire assembly only one received the nectar. The Great Mahakasyapa confirmed his understanding with a smile. The Dharma was transmitted heart to heart.

A warm glow emanating from the soft lights in the dark. The sound of rain on my rooftop. The work is piling up, as I sit in the glow of my computer screen. The slow hum of the clothes dryer is somehow soothing. I think some Coffee is in order.

 

January 11 2021

Entering the sacred gate, I take this sip of coffee. The expression of the universe in this cup. Slowly the steam rises. With a warm heart, I smile. The sun has not yet risen, as the rain falls in the cold damp wood. My heart filled with comfort & ease.

There is something about touching a truth directly and fresh. Even if we have already had a similar realization in the past. It is one thing to know it, and another to embody it in the moment. You yourself become an embodiment of that truth. You are actualizing truth.

Walking in the rain

 

January 02 2021

Yesterday, I went for a walk in the winter rain. The streets were shining, reflecting the trees. The smell of wood smoke was wafting through the air, as I slowly walked. I could hear the sound of rain falling in all directions, as my feet touched the ground.

 

January 02 2021

I was having magical dreams again. I dreamt that it was snowing, I was so happy to finally get some snow. The mountains were glittering in the night, as I went for a walk. On my walk, there were monks walking out in the snow, in their winter robes. It was a wonderful dream.

 

January 1 2021

Turning once again, our star shines bright on the horizon. Marking our ideas of time, with the Light of a new day. Our ancient beating hearts, the shine in our eyes, speak what cannot be uttered with words. Breathing in the vast morning Light, among a sea of stars.

Hopes and dreams reaching the dome of the sky, from the dawn of time. As we tread the dusty path, the Light of our heart leads the way. Weary and worn, we rise and fall again, like the breath of the sea. All along, there was only this. One step at a time, the universe moves.

Just over the ridge the sleeping giant reaches towards the sky. Her beating heart made of fire, her robes woven of ice, and snow. Gently she moves, day by day closer to her awakening. Until then she reflects the stars, and gives life to the trees, and the birds of the sky.

Light is a feeling in the heart that arises when we touch beauty, love, or have moments of non suffering. It is an emotion that helps bring ease to body and mind. We can touch the light, both day, and night. Darkness and Light are one.

Just before the sun begins to break the horizon, a primordial celebration will break the silence of night. A tumultuous song will raise to the heavens, as birds greet the morning Light.

 

December 27 2020

Walking among the great ones, rising up from the earth, as the mist descends. The air is filled with the sweet fresh breath of pines. With every step I take, I am home, my heart at ease. The calm in my heart, serenaded by the notes of the song bird.

December 26 2020

Shining in the heart, a light, burning like a billion blazing suns. Breathing in the trees, reflecting in the flowers, and lighting up the darkness of the night sky, scattered among the suns of heaven. Basking in the glow of cosmic nectar. For who can count the sands of time?

Breath after breath, foot step after footstep, how many have we taken since that first day? Running endlessly towards a phantasm in the stream of mind. How wonderous to finally touch your foot to the earth, or take this breath, stepping out of the stream, ending the chase.

As we move across the arc of heaven in the twelfth month of the two thousand and twentieth year, the sun moves to greet Capricorn, on the darkest day. Tilting on the axis of time, she moves from the north, longing for the light of day. While in the circle the midnight sun rises.

Magical dream: I just awoke from a strange magical dream. I was looking at the night sky, and the moon began to move all over the sky, I was confused. I looked over to my right, and a monk was standing on a horizontal light post projecting from a second story building.

His robes were flapping in the wind, and he was performing Kuji-Kiri with his hands in the sky. He then reached his arm out and the moon that was moving in the sky turned into a phoenix blazing on fire, it landed next to him on the light post, it was as tall as he was.

The monk turned and faced me pointing his arm and hand toward me, and the phoenix flew to me, I was afraid, but the phoenix landed next to me and touched foreheads with me. Somehow I knew we could communicate mind to mind, I thought to ask him one important question.

I thought deeply and then communicated from the mind, “If there is something that is most important for me to know, then tell me that”. The phoenix looked me in the eye while blazing on fire, and remained silent.

The dark days of winter settle across the land. Busily lights are strung, and hearts glow bright, for soon the sun will be reborn. Until then, we magnify the Light in our hearts, to endure the suns long night.
