WHEN OLD TRICKS DON’T DO THE TRICK!

 When two apparent realities collide, we’re in for a helleva surprise! I’m talking about that mouthless scream  we all have when we see  we’re  wedged tight between our contradictions; when we’re in such a tight place we can’t breathe, and yet somehow we must! At first, the old tricks do the trick and we wiggle free, […]

WHO DO I THINK I THINK I AM?

I was sitting with a friend at a crowded bar called Garibaldi’s. Everything was loud – the sounds, the people, the colors, even the taste of my house white wine  had a certain attack!  Still, there was a reigning inner quietude. This morning, writing at the window of my favorite cafe ( they have a […]

PEEP…PEEP..

         Nothing is accumulated in the timeless. There is no possessor, no possessing and no possessions. Trust in your deepest knowing, step into unknowing and let life live. The sun never sets. You are being, appearing as human. The Sanctuary of Self is indifferent to prosperity. Truly graceful expressions are not about nonduality; they arise […]

CHEEP…CHEEP…CHEEP

Ideas about truth can make great “spiritual” entertainment…  they may touch and deeply resonate in our awareness:  Be still to know that you don’t know. All that is, is you (spirit) in full expression. An aware living is not a hobby; a daily something we do or don’t do. Life is spirit manifesting. Death is spirit in form returning to the unformed. […]

PEEPERS…

Even droppings carry seeds that may sprout!.. Living is like unwrapping a precious gift… slowly! A word lovingly spoken changes everything. The notion that you are not already awake is just a thought. We don’t need a plan to start to walk in a new direction. Drop the map too, and all the other Spiritual […]

A VERY SHORT STORY ABOUT TRUTH

There is nothing to know or do. There is no person to know or do anything.  There is only one timeless, formless Self expressed in time and form. You are this wordless, self-less, infinitude. This  truth is One endless unfolding of non-personal love and compassion. Realizing and accepting  what is  ends  all stories and suffering. […]

BEDTIME STORIES

 As very young children we are told bedtime stories. Even if  our parents never actually read stories to us. We take in  all of our life-story at the nipple of life, so to speak. And  what we are fed adds not only flesh to our bones, but ideas to our head.  From birth right up […]

SUBSTITUTE THINKING

“ If useless things do not hang in your mind, every season is a good season for you.”   Murnon                                                                                                                    The writer John Updike once said: “ The writer of fiction, a professional liar, is paradoxically obsessed with what is true –what feels true, what rings true in the fabrication being assembled “.  In other words, […]

THE CONTENT OF NOW

   The other day, I heard a New York Times Best Selling author say that, having written some thirteen novels, he realized that words were not important; that “it’s all about the story”. In my writing, I show little taste for “the story” and only so much sweetening in words as it takes to wash […]

THE DAWNING

You are nothing but real, whole and happy already! Everything  you thought you were is all illusion. All thought by no-one, about no-one. This no-one that you are is also everyone. You are the whole of everyone and everything – All  that is experienced All that is known All that is unknown All that is […]
