Clarity

 

“When there is inward awareness of every activity of your mind and your body, when you are aware of your thoughts, of your feelings, both secret and open, conscious and unconscious, then out of this awareness there comes a clarity that is not induced, not put together by the mind.  And without that clarity, you may do what you will, you may search the heavens, and the earth, and the deeps, but you will never find out what is true.”

– J. Krishnamurti

Place

 

focus word: place

Now is a dwelling place, a space. Wherever you go, it can be your home, a place of awareness, a place where Divine can be felt. Present moment. Eternal moment.

The heart is a space from which one can call upon Divine 24/7.

Reminds me of Jesus’ words about place: “The last will be first, and the first will be last.”

Align Divine, and all will  be fine, will fall into place.

Frog Scriptures

 

At the pond,
I went out on a quest
for frogs
I did see ~fleetingly~
hundreds of frogs hopping,
leaving water jewels on pads
like diamonds
evidence of their having been there
I asked them
if any would sit still
so I could take closer looks
but NONE would after much pleading
even though I told them I don’t eat frogs

Rising Above

 

“The mind and its thoughts come and go. They are unreal and impermanent. They are like the ephemeral clouds of the sky and the waves of the ocean. They cannot touch your consciousness. Beyond the surface, your consciousness remains pure and untouched. That Pure Consciousness, which is eternally aware of all that happens, is the Witness, the Sakshi, of everything.”

Amma- Awaken Children, Vol. 7 p. 56

Gift of Silence

 

“The true contemplative is not one who prepares his mind for a particular message that he wants or expects to hear, but is one who remains empty because he knows that he can never expect to anticipate the words that will transform his darkness into light.  He does not even anticipate a special kind of transformation.  He does not demand light instead of darkness.  He waits on the Word of God in silence, and, when he is “answered,” it is not so much by a word that bursts into his silence.  It is by his silence itself, suddenly, inexplicably revealing itself to him as a word of great power, full of the voice of God.”

—Thomas Merton, “Dialogue with Silence”, ed. Jonathan Motaldo
