There was this time, camping with my father, we were laying on a blanket, I must have been chattering. He said to me in his soft voice, “close your eyes, and listen, can you hear the sound of the wind moving through the trees”? In that moment everything stopped.

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.

How complex is the subconscious that it can work out equations while you are not thinking about the subject, or even during sleep? It often seems to arise from nothingness. The interconnected complexity, arises when the mind is directed.

In these still waters how many blazing suns, and fire skies has she reflected? Her clear still waters reflecting the stars of heaven, and the light of the moon, the heart of every water bird, and passing cloud, yet she holds them not.

What a wonder it is to have the chance at one more spring. As I walk, the song of the birds brings me home to the present moment. Their joy, is palpable, as they celebrate life, along with every blade of grass, flower, and tree. The thusness of being shines bright.

If the sun should rise over the horizon, may I greet it with the heart of a song bird. If the wind should move across the earth, may I be as the trees dancing up to the sky. If the moon should rise once more, may I be as the stars of heaven shining in the velvet blue.

 

March 21 21

 

March 21 2021

Tonight I offer you all the stars in the heavens, glittering in the velvet blue as far as the eye can see. I offer you the spring flowers, and the breath of pine trees in the cool night air. I offer you the morning song sleeping in the heart of every bird. Love to all. <3

One of the greatest quandaries of all generations, is that everyone wants change, but we wait for others to do it, when in reality we are the only ones who can do it.

 

March 18 2021

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.

Still waters reflecting the heart of the sky. I let everything go as I breathe in the cool evening air. The last calls of celebrating birds echo off of the distant mountains. Another day in the vastness of space, resting in the arms of the Milky Way.

 

March 15 2021

One more day. . . . .

 

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.

March 10 2021

There among the reflecting light of heaven, her heart soars as vast as the sky. Earth, and Sky reflecting as one, in the heart of the water bird. In the beat of her wings, and the call of her song, she sings of it, as the waves lap the shores of time.

Every great mountain who has reached for the sky, becomes the sands of time. As the wind moves across her peaks, she is transformed. You can find her in the heart of a flower, on the bank of a river, or beating in a heart.

An end to things . . . . . you will not find it.

Among the last days of winter, spring shoots bloom forth, as the broken dreams of yesterday, are buried in the blueness of the sky. Who will know of those who came before? Those who have become the soil from which we bloom in the garden of life.

 

February 18 2021

I stood at my window as the soft light filtered in the room, watching as the rain fell gently on the field of snow. From that vantage, I sent out the love in my heart to all beings. May all beings be free of suffering & their hearts filled with comfort and ease.

 

February 15 2021

The heart of the song bird, resting gently in the arms of the mother. The trees sing of her in the soft breeze. The great oceans of time, crash on the shores of her beating heart.

 

February 15 2021

My heart was quiet, I dare not make a sound, as I walked through the cathedral my heart in awe. Her spires reaching to the heavens glittering and laden with ice. Her altar decorated with the finest ribbons, while her sleeping choir took shelter in her loving arms.

I found that one Love, it was singing from the sky, when the sun rose on the horizon. It flowed from the heart of every singing bird. It moved in every vein of the leaves as they turned toward the Light. The beating stars of my own heart, spoke of it, in the verses of time.

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 13 2021

The cool crisp air of night fills the void, dancing among the giants, the glittering light reflects the sky. The world sleeps in her trance. The melody of lullabies linger in the hush. The cosmic churn moves in the great wheel of the sky, breathing life on the shores of time.

She’s burning on the horizon & the sky is on fire. The great giants reaching to the sky reflect her light, the heart filled with wonder as the baby blues of heaven, kiss the sun goodnight. The last notes of the songbird drift on the melody as the soft scent of pine fills the air.

 

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.

 

February 08 2021

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 this, come what may

For the Light bringers

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.

The movement of time

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.

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.

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.

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 mist rolls across the mountains, as the golden haze of heavens light reflects on the long road home.

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.

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.
