It is cognition, thought, thought stream, consciousness, thinking...........whatever it calls itself.....that creates the
pseudo-problem.

It spins out a false world.......complete with a false self....that wants to escape.


It paints itself into a corner......and then tries to paint itself out.


When that is seen.......clearly.........a run in the fabric occurs and the whole structure is weakened.....and begins to collapse.


If one tacks into the wind.........holds true.......even when the very edge of the known world is in sight............something unspeakable happens.



..................a familiar warmth......deep in the heart....a divine naturalness................something whispers:





"Welcome Home..........I missed you..........I love you."

Exclamation

'Unspeakably' beautiful......

There are no 'words' here to express the boundless, yet all-encompassing gratitude.

Thank you again, Beloved, for sharing ...... One to One!


love,

And yet..... Razz


Now that these two awesome 'poems' ("no subject" and "homerun") have been thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated by no one, are there any further comments by 'any'one? Confused

Or is it just too easy? Wink


Or .... is there a polite allowing of 'poetic license" involved?! If so, 'I''ll happily keep quiet and 'let sleeping dogs lie' 'at home'.


But here, It does recall the story of: "How Huineng Became the Sixth Zen Patriarch":

Shenxiu wrote his famous poem on the wall of a temple corridor:

Body is the bodhi tree
Heart is like clear mirror stand
Strive to clean it constantly
Do not let the dust motes land



and Huineng's Response:

Bodhi really has no tree
Nor is clear mirror the stand
Nothing's there initially
So where can the dust motes land?




So.....what begins to collapse is the idea that there is a way 'I' can "tack into the wind" and "hold true" when there is only 'home' as LOVE.

AND ("no subject"):

Close your eyes... nothing seen.

Open your eyes... the world appears.

No eyes to close or open... no effort involved.

Yet, the world appears and disappears 'in the blink of an eye'.

This appearance and disappearance is not of the worlds making.

The world never appears until it is called into apparent being.

Who makes the effort to call?

The call home too is without effort and yet...

Until Love calls, Love will not answer... such effort Love makes

Love

Shocked

So, my Love....Effort's needed for love? Confused

Who is it that is separated from love?

And who can "call" love when there IS only love?

lots of 'love', eh?

"One should restrain the mind from flowing downward, even as the flow of a river
is
blocked by the construction of a dam. After having firmly abandoned all contact
with
external objects, turn the mind within and and reflect over everything within
yourself, even
while engaged in various activities. With the help of this sharp sword of
wisdom, cut
through the net-work of conditioning (which throws up cravings, intentions,
motivations,
acceptance and rejection) which alone is the cause of this stream of world
appearance."

Vasistha's Yoga p.212

sarasking Very Happy

Love calls and Love answers... is this so difficult?

All apparent effort... to control, to achieve some 'other' state, to be other than that which is here now (beyond 'eternity')... is illusion.

The expression of real power is in the momentary appearance itself... and in the cessation of all appearances... instantly. This power is not controlled by anyone... it is the controller, inseparable from being/non-being, inseparable from consciousness.

As Love calls, Love answers... these words are meaningless. Shocked

It is foolishness to analyse meaningless words. Embarassed

And yet...

Love

Love calls and Love answers.

Meaningless, as 'blue' is meaningless.

And yet, here is 'blue'.

Love calls and Love answers...

Love

Yes Michael, that reminds me of your great :



there is power
and it is all powerful
nothing can control this power
it is the controller

Yeah fox. Very Happy

The 'invitation' from love is constantly repeated to love in countless ways through countless 'carriers' until it is sharp enough to penetrate the 'heart' (like cupid's arrow....sorry, still in Valentine's Day mode Embarassed ) and awakens the sweetly sleeping lover from it's dreamy slumber.

love,

LOL Laughing

This is so funny! It stops 'me' right in 'my' tracks! As before, with 'nemo's' posts on 'experiencing' and 'I amness", 'I'm' totally at a loss for 'words'! Shocked But 'I' don't know why! And it's impossible to 'predict what will "set it off;" Embarassed and, yet, it's strangely fascinating to watch!

As to THIS:

something here finds this overwhelmingly STUNNING! <whew!>

So...o.k.... it's ALL good (or in Aussiespeak: "she'll be right!"). 'We'll' just 'see' what happens, eh?!

love,

Love calls.....


Although 'sara' is seemingly open and vulnerable, there is no brittle fragility. It's just easy relaxed malleability. And it's wonderful! Very Happy

So..... no worries, mate! Anything goes, everything flows: Source to Source. Wink


and Love answers.....

Love,

These words no mortal has ever known, and no mortal has ever sung:

They are by, through and for one alone:

"The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the end of the skies

And the first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command, my love

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last, till the end of time, my love

The first time ever I saw your face
Your face
Your face
Your face..."

The whole world: beauty personified...

The visible image of invisibility...

Your face...

Love
