We see through a glass darkly

With kaleidoscope eyes confusing

The refracted luminosity with

Ultimate Truth.

It is in your love

My heart blooms.

Your lilac-scented

Whisper wakens me.

Your embrace

Warms my Being.

You light guides me

On a moonless night.

It has always been

You.

I AM

the manifest,

the hidden.

And I dance

in the spaces

between Being

and Non-being.

Firing Arrows into the Dark

May 25, 2017

“The spiritual life is like firing arrows into the dark. You can see the bow. You can see the arrows; but you cannot see the target. And probably if you saw the target, you wouldn’t fire the arrow because the target is your own heart.” — Hazrat Inayat Khan, Sufi master

A Call to Depth

May 24, 2017

Why do you continue to

Only skim the surface of the

Ocean of Being?

What hinders your

Diving into the depths?

Dive deep to the very floor.

Discover firsthand that the

Ground of Being is the

Very ground of your being.

A Closed Mind 

April 26, 2017

A closed mind is like a clenched fist; it takes a lot of energy to maintain that level of contraction. A closed mind expends a great deal of energy imposing upon reality our notions of how things ought to be. It matters little whether or not these notions are liberal or conservative. They are still simply opinions rooted in self-cherishing with the implication that my way or my ideas are better than yours. Our judgement of others is the swinging fist of a constricted, clenched mind. 
The liberation we feel when we open our minds comes from relaxing and letting go. We experience a surge of energy by simply allowing reality to be as is; and we find freedom in Be-ing. Only with an open mind can we glimpse our true nature, which bigger than our petty self-concepts.

Thirsty Fish

April 25, 2017

Blinded by their own sight,

Deafened by their own hearing,

Numbed by their own feeling,

Dulled by their own cognition,

They fail to perceive their Source.

They are fish swimming in the

Ocean of Being thirsting for water.
