Like Alice...



Like Alice sitting at the table with all the characters 
eventually coming to love each one in a way, 
accepting each crazy character.. as part of our play, 
yet not the real US. 
There is a distinction there, 
not to judge as "observing" could imply 
but to gently take charge and begin to understand in a new level.

In the Silence of the Surrendering Night ...



In the silence of the surrendering night 
My open heart awaits your command.
When will you make love to me with your presence?

You have shown me your light. 
Every breath I take brings me closer to your love, your grace.

Your gifts of understanding guide me up the ladder
Gently, with kindness and
Infinite patience.

When I walk with you 
There is no time, no where to go.
My rushing life ceases to exist
And all melts away into a pool of presence,
A glow, 
Giving me a glimpse of the mansion that awaits me.

Presence is a Gift...


Cantinho dos Deuses

Presence is a gift form the divine, a grace ... 
and the receptiveness to this in every moment is the truest aim. 
The mind thinks it can sort it all out, 

but we know that the mysterious has its own pace, 
and we are better served by being more receptive.

The World is Full of Magic Things...



"The world is full of magic things ... 
patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper"

All the Frictions...



All the frictions as they begin very small 
becoming larger are preparing us for our conscious death.
It seems only right that the escalation in the frictions 
would be the only way to reach that highest point 
that we can in this body. 
Being grateful for those frictions 
is the only way to except 
that our path is guided by the higher.

The Buddha Found and Taught...



The Buddha found and taught the " middle way " 
and realized you cannot pull too tight 
or the string will break 
or too slack and it will not sound.

My Inner World...



My inner world can comfort the machine 
and keep the navigational control towards the higher. 
The constant reminders from students, conscious beings, 
Mervyn and the being of the Academy 
is what allows me to stay awake to my inner world. 
Being with you all consistently 
allows me to stay grounded in the work 
and to keep my aim of awakening to this life.
