[ a fresh bundle of small delights, dept. ]

Peace and joy are at the heart of all inspiration, yes. In that vein, here’s a randomly assembled collection that’s inspired me this morning; some of you may endure..ah, enjoy, these little candles too. It further occurs to me that this ‘fresh bundle of small delights’ is inspiring its own production here. 🙂 as I […]

[ what is awareness really, dept. ]

Ah yes, paradox..again. Awareness is reality; reality is awareness. Reality has no subject with its object; it’s not personal, not egoic, not a concept; it never appears as anything ‘other’ than the constant ‘awareingness’ which it is, here/now. All that comes and goes is not real; that which we essentially, infinitely are – pure aware […]

[ being peace, making peace, dept. ]

Real peace lies in fully loving;in constantly letting things come and go;in letting all events happen as they willin the light of an alert awareness;in deeply enjoying life as it presents;in relating from the inside, out,and from the outside, in, in resting in undivided onenesswholly here, completely now. 🙂

{ sunny spot with a quiet cuppa, dept. }

Visiting Voices: J C Tefft ~THE END OF SUFFERINGQUESTIONER: I have been a seeker for 30 years. I am 63, my father committed suicide when I was 19, and my best friend committed suicide when I was 18…[edited] My understanding, based on the teachings of non-duality teachers, is that the universe wanted to experience that […]

[ finding life in death, dept. ]

All of our life-long conditioning does nothing more than conceptualize and personalize experience…unless and until it seems we’re driven to deep inner seeking with questions like “What is really going on here?” or ” Who am I really?” For some, in their search, finally, there’s a giving up, a denial of all beliefs, a cessation […]

{ a peace in simple living, dept. }

FINDING EASE IN BEING, IN LIVING ITSELF, HAPPENS. ** FINDING PEACE IS EFFORTLESS – STOP NOW, JUST FOR THIS MOMENT – REST IN THE CALMNESS OF JUST BEING – NOT A SOMEONE DOING SOMETHING. FIND THAT QUIET PLACE YOU DEEPLY KNOW AND LOVE. REST THERE, IN UNMOVED, ALERT, LOVING BEING. STOP, CEASE, ALLOW, INVITE, HOST..WHATEVER […]

[ peace of mind, dept. ]

THE CLARITY OF PEACE.One of the things about real, non-personal love is it acts without prejudice and its’ conflicts. In aware living, there’s a seeing of all the mind-generated ‘problems’ wholly, from love…that love includes what is, and rather than react from cultural, social, traditional conditioning – those ideas, ideals and feelings we habitually bring […]

[ finding real peace, dept. ]

In truth, we’re walking each other home. Anonji It seems passion is about as rare these days as peace. Turns out though that the two are the one, of course. Passion and compassion (loving) arises from peace. From our deepest urge for peace. Peace is the absence of conflict – not in the world out […]

[ war and peace, dept. ]

Perhaps, to find the nearest war – and peace – all we need to do is sit home, turn off, tune in and watch the parade in our mind. After all, it’s the mind that produces all conflict, that makes war and, when not burdened with belief, rests in peace. To find real peace, all […]

VISITING VOICES: Kahlil Gibran:

“YOUR PAIN IS THE BREAKING OF THE SHELL THAT ENCLOSES YOUR UNDERSTANDING.” * I remember when and where I first met Kahlil Gibran, so to speak. I was a married twenty five year old junior marketing guy, away on a rare business trip, sitting in awe beneath the black star studded heavens on a crystal […]
