milk it

Can we slip on a new me?
Many oscars
have
been won
using that talent.

Should we try anyway?
Don’t be an actor,
just be?
How?
Find
a way to
silence and milk it.

no longer trapped

The masters of the past put
a lot of emphasis
on simply

observing
things with
an alert awareness.

They say observation without
judgment changes the
body’s chemistry
and energy in
a positive
direction.

Why
and How?
We are no longer
trapped in language.
“Just watching” is an ability
which comes about from a daily meditation practice.

Meditation provides a way to be fully aware.
This happens when we experience
moments without listening to
or using language

which
meditation
allows to happen.

the turn is always ours

Does maya (our dreaming) exist as a 4D screen in the
brain which is able to produce or note the environment via its senses and can respond and calculate? Yet
reality is
always just
around the corner?
What does a corner look like?
How do we see corners? From the inside or outside?

Is maya where we see and hear and feel and smell and taste while the good and bad happen but does not cause the good and bad times but is a witness, a record?

Does the dreaming brain make good and bad possible? So how do we find reality? Is the only way to become it?

Maya is virtual reality, so is maya enough? For most?

Reality just doesn’t care if
it’s discovered or not.
So the turn is
always
ours.
We are
always at bat.

Am I
the one who
makes comments
to and about the maya? Or
am I maya through and through? Or am I both?
An identity and commentator created
by nature and fitting
perfectly
into
the
dream
world where
things  are only partially here and partially true.

Where would we be without dreaming?
Would we be beings of about
five million years
ago?

picking the lock

Is language a beautiful cage? Knowledge is a very useful thing, but does it fall short of knowing?

If so, how does knowing come about?

The sages say there’s a time for both knowledge and knowing. Knowing comes from the deepest parts of our being and is felt by a deepening awareness.

If so, how does a deepening awareness happen?

Desiring it, then searching for it, finding a path to it, then practicing it by walking along the path. Why not give some time for the adventure of seeking out the deepest issues of life and living as a human being?

How will you experience knowing more deeply instead of experiencing the state of being full of knowledge?

When you venture into nature where you live (gardens, parks, shaded streets, a potted plant in your home, etc.) and give special attention to the life in the plants, insects, and animals, you start to notice in a different manner (having as few thoughts as possible helps), and you may begin to see and feel the connection with life by knowing (feeling) every bit of it contains DNA as you do and has evolved to its present state just as you have. Then you may begin to realize you are not separate. We already have the knowledge that all life on our planet is built from the most common elements in the universe. But how am I able to feel life?

Knowing is a feeling fed by awareness, not something recorded somewhere. I’m not an enlightened being, but I’ve searched and found a path which feels right according to my knowing. I’m still stuck in language like almost everyone, but I’m in a place where I have the tools to pick the lock if I dare to use them.

Getting out of the language cage by taking the time to experience silence without worrying about or desiring what may happen or not happen is what the sages say is the proven way to pick the lock of knowledge.

doing is everything #2

Try to think of something which is not part of an action or process. Even ideas which take up no space are doings.

Existing, dying, decomposing, our remains being processed and used again and again by the earth are all doings.

It’s amazing to think even a small rock appearing to be doing nothing is composed of an unspeakable number of quivering energy units. We quiver too like the rock and are not aware of it.

What would being aware of the quivering be like?

It might have a sweetness about it and might feel like being loved by sensing all the atoms of one’s own body merged with all atoms existing. If so, how could such an astounding thing happen?

Maybe by finding a way to fully discard our identity at least for a while which is an adventure into new territories say the sages from the East. 

We are energy through and through and are mobile. So what are we doing with this mobility besides not being dead?

To
become
energetic must
one be energetic? Even
doing nothing is everything?

humming along

Could it be as simple as…Everything is as it is and that’s what truth is? Hollywood speak: “It is what it is” actually fits the definition of truth, but…

Is truth too easy to talk about? We have vague imaginings of everything humming along together in a constantly changing now, but is this reality slippery when we try to experience it via mindfulness or attempting to feel ourselves as safe in a very snug part of the mystery?

Why is it so hard to feel perfectly included? Is there something in the way? If so, what is it?

Is it the something which usually takes credit for all of the human animal’s talents? What would happen…if I, the identity, the ego, the entity my animal created to handle things were put in charge of my being’s immune system and its eyesight? I would be blind almost immediately and soon die from a small infection.

Am I hardly more than a chooser and companion? These are my talents, and I’m scared I’ll loose my seat of power if I ever give it up, but is this very unlikely because I’m needed by the animal to choose and get along in society.

But can I trust my own reasoning?

Why fear change when change is the the game everything is participating in? Is change humming along with or without our awareness of it?
