There is such a tragic beauty in our seeking,
our ceaseless behind the veil peeking
We search high and low, past and future, in and out,
struggling poignantly, to remember what “IT’S” all about
We make cages of open space and mazes of straight lines,
in vain attempts to know, to control, to define,
while becoming only ever more deaf and blind
For what we seek is not in the fires of a hell below
or shimmering heaven above,
it is in everywhere, everything, all the time,
the answer not hiding we strive to find,
it is love, only love, just love —
To soar on LOVE’S wings, this is the wisdom of the dove…
“This sky where we live is no place to lose your wings so love, love, love.” ~ Rumi
She dove into LOVE’S infinite ocean and as she began to drown in its eternal depths divine she thoughtfully, blissfully to herself mused; once one has drowned in LOVE, they need never have fear death again…
“Fear of death is fear of surrender to Infinity.
Learn to surrender, to exist at Infinity while alive, and fear of death dissolves.
Fear of death is fear of the Unknown.
Realize the Wonder, the Eternal Unknowability of the Totality of Existence, and fear of death is transcended.
If happiness or freedom depends on the Answer to the Question, then there can be no happiness or freedom.
The Question cannot be satisfactorily or finally Answered.
For one who abides at Infinity, happy and free, at ease with his Ultimate Ignorance, the Question and the Answer are equally unnecessary.
What began will come to an end.
What is Wonderful is not threatened.
The Process of the Totality of Existence is Transcendental and Eternal.
Only a fraction of the Whole can pass away in any moment, since only a fraction of the Whole appears in any moment.
Therefore, the Heart Itself is always already Full of Wonder and Love.
“I” is the body-mind, the fraction of the Whole that is now appearing and will soon disappear.
“I” must be surrendered to the Heart, to the Whole, which is Infinity, Wonder, and Love.” ~ Adi Da Samraj, The Eating Gorilla Comes in Peace: The Transcendental Principle of Life Applied to Diet and the Regenerative Discipline of True Health
She is compassionate, but not concerned
She is empathetic, but not attached
She loves, but does not care…
“Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions; reality can be obtained only by someone who is detached. ” ~ Simone Weil
Fall in love with LOVE
BE LOVE in love with LOVE
“All, everything that I understand, I only understand because I love.” ~ Leo Tolstoy
Profoundly saddened was the man, as back on his life he gazed, not out fear of punishment for the grave errors in judgement he made, as he approached the great unfathomable beyond, for one thing he did know was there is no divine retribution or reward waiting — there is only now and perhaps a karmic balancing. No his heart sickness, was because he was disappointed in himself, by the choices that he made that kept him from being all he could BE, in this LOVE’s experience and for the mind blindness that allowed for it to take so long for him to again remember what the choices needed to BE that, are…
“The spirit of a man is constructed out of his choices.” ~ Irvin D. Yalom, When Nietzsche Wept
A jaded broken man whiskey bottle in his wrinkled hand came upon a young woman walking the long downtrodden streets of the infamous Tenderloin of San Francisco, California, as she walked she handed out blankets to those in need of warming from the foggy winter chill, to each who took a blanket she also gave hug and a smile before dancing gleefully away. Finally the man walked to the young woman and slurred, “What gives? No one shares nothing without getting something in return. So what’s your con?” The young woman who had been kneeling hugging a poor tired lost soul, stood and turned to him still beaming and said, “Okay you’re on to me I do share only because I get; I get happiness, I get joy, I get fulfillment and it is my daily prayer that everyone remembers their spirits true purpose is to be selfish just like me.” The man still not understanding or believing then said her, his words dripping through intoxicated lips. “You mean to tell no ones paying you or you’re not doing this out the fantasy that in someway you will rewarded in the afterlife for your good deeds here on Earth or you will be saved from some divine retribution?The woman walked to the man, placing her hand on his shoulder and said, “Dearest brother, I see now your confusion, you think Heaven is somewhere, some when else, when it is in truth here and now, always here and now.” She continued, “While giving, as I mentioned before, could be perceived as selfish. it is not martyrdom. I invite you to join me in my acts of selfish empathy and greedy altruism, for the well of happiness, spiritual bliss is infinitely abundant, created ever to be shared.” With that she hugged and kissed him gently on his weather worn cheek, before smiling and disappearing into the throng of the needy, handing out blankets and hugs. The man was then struck by the knowing that while blankets warmed their bodies, it was the hugs that warmed their souls and it is that we cannot touch, LOVE, that truly makes our spirit whole. Tears of joy welled in his eyes, as he dropped his bottle hollow spirits in the trash, before sitting down, on the cold pavement and wrapping his arms around another lost soul who had been waiting to be found.
“I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.” ~ Kahlil Gibran
“We have so far to go to realize our human potential for compassion, altruism, and love.” ~ Jane Goodall
“Loving others is the greatest gift we can give ourselves. Altruism that rewards one’s self.” ~ Allan Lokos
Intimately close, immeasurably far
She witnessed the LOVE that was she
Pulsing in the heart of the soul of Infinity
Humbly, alone, silently she wept tears of joy…
“If a thing loves, it is infinite.” ~ William Blake
