Today I began to fall into the abyss, while falling the words of yesterday became a net, breaking my fall. We don’t have to finish falling, realizing you are in decent is enough to break that fall. The farther you fall, the harder it will be to climb back up.

 

January 15 2021

The most precious gift I have ever received is love. There are a lot of bad things that happen to us throughout our lives, but at the same time there are countless acts of love that have supported us no matter how small. I am grateful beyond words.

The heart know the way

 

January 13 2021

In the void of darkness, all became light, shining like a diamond in the sky. Emanating from the heart an infinite stream of soft joy. Every quarter filled with the warmth of love. Every breath, every blade of grass, became the notes of the cosmic symphony of life.

Gate to the formless

 

January 11 2021

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.

How quickly we can lose our humanity, in the name of humanity.

It is through dividing the people causing them to fear & hate one another, that our rights & freedoms will be stripped. Through this fear & hate, one side believes removing the rights of the other is justified. But in the end those rights, are your own rights.

 

January 10 2021

The spokes, turn round, and round as the movement of the universe crashes through the ocean of my beating heart. This dusty path we tread, glittering on the shores of time. Here she holds the void of being. Throughout the cosmos spinning her star lit web of life.

From the memories of yesterday

 

January 10 2021

I was swept across the sky, the movement of my transformation did not cease. And, next I will be born in the heart of a flower. I will dance like diamonds on the great mountains rising from the earth. I will fill the great basins. And in the deep, I will wait.

Transformation

Undecided movement of the mind. Strewn across your starry sky in the velvet blue. Here in my heart the flower of the universe blooms, her fragrance filling the sky with light. Oh how the darkness shines, in your unbound sky.

I am an expression of my Mother, and Father and all those who came before. Every star in the universe, all matter that has ever been. The mandala of burning suns, sees through these eyes, feels with this heart, breathes with these lungs.

 

January 07 2021

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.

I do not see the world in Red or Blue, I do not have hate for anyone and do not define them by their political party. Until we see each other as fellow humans we are doomed to failure. We will never see a world of peace if we continue to allow ourselves to be divided.

Why don’t we just hold the election again? Have the Military conduct it and preside over it, and watch people as they vote to make sure there is no cheating. Also have them count the votes.

Standing among the ridges of time, and the ever moving clouds. I send out the love in my heart in the ten directions, as the rain falls all around. Vast space before me, bathed in the cool blues of winters light.

Where the heart takes flight

 

January 03 2021

Turning on the cosmic shores, the great wheel moves, churning the tides of time. The sound of her beating heart resounds throughout the heavens. In her great ray of light the spokes join. Tears without number, laughter without end, moment by moment, she comes into being.

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.

Last sunrise of 2020

 

December 31 2020

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.

We are an expression of the entire universe.

~ All life is sacred.

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 27 2020

Where the soul finds ease

 

December 26 2020

All is calm, all is bright, as the moon shines her light in the velvet sky. Glittering stars reflecting in my soul. Heavens lullaby drifting quietly into the night. The ancient song goes round, playing on the sands of time.

 

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?

The goodness and light in a person is measured by the intent of the heart. Sometimes even the best intentions produce a negative result. However, there is a clear difference between someone who intends malice, and one who intends something good.

December 19 2020

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.

Entering this stream, the cosmos moves without end. Name, and time fall away. Wont you take this sip of tea, and drink the oceans of time? That diamond light in your eyes, and flash of smile, preaching the unborn story on the sands of time.

It is possible to be happy, and sad at the same time.

 

December 17 2020

As the first glimmers of day break the horizon, light softly filters among the starlight pines reaching to the heavens. Oh how she greets the day, as the soft breath of evergreens fills the air, mingling with the joyous call of the songbird.

Truth is for everyone. You do not need to don robes, or make a pilgrimage, or kneel in a temple. The truth is here and now, you yourself are truth. It does not matter if you are a sinner or a saint, no one can take the truth away from you.

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.

Rebirth moment by moment since before time. Born of fire, and light in a sea of darkness. Moment by moment constantly arising, as all that has ever been and will be. The entire universe seeing through these eyes, and taking this one breath, I smile.

Equanimity is the absence of happiness, and suffering. However when you abide in equanimity a soft joy naturally arises. The absence of suffering brings a joy all on it’s own.

The movement of matter flows on the winds of time. Even the mightiest mountains become grains of sand, just as the light of stars become a beating heart. Matter moves without end, one thing becoming another, with nothing lost.

A Kalpa can be described as a bird carrying a red scarf in her mouth passing over the Summit of Mount Sumeru, once every hundred years. In so doing the scarf brushes the pinnacle. A Kalpa, being the time it takes to wear down the mountain by nothing but this activity.

Sitting, sitting, just to see “This”. Reeling in the mind again and again, just to see, “This”.  All around the world Diamond eyed seekers wake up to meet the bright morning star, on this last day of Rohatsu Sesshin.

 

December 08 2020

The vast expanse of time moves on the breath of the wind, and beats in every heart. The song of unborn stars plays her melody as the light of heaven rings out in a baby’s first cry. The sound of laughter, and oceans of tears, wonderous manifestations of eternity.

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.
