You, correctly realised, will outlive the Earth, Sun, Universe.

Q: “Tell me about Tao.”

A: “Nothing can be said.” (opens hand to reveal nothing)

die suffering


It is not possible to die, only suffer.

It is not possible to die (as you are infinite), only suffer (not knowing this).

Looking for unity


How, separate, will you see truth, unity?

Deep diving

Samahdi does not come and go.

The clouds clear and reveal it but habit memory regenerates I-Ego-Body-Actions and true self is again hidden.

From continued revelation of that which is ever present, the new formed habit actions can be to remain and not return the veil.

Fake o'clock

Now only exists as an idea because you already have the ideas of past and future.

Do anything in the past or the future and you can prove them real.

If you can not do anything in the past or the future they are false, just ideas.

So if now is based on things that are false then now is also false, an idea.

Who experiences now? Who experiences this false idea?

Can't be real either! So what is?

Only this.

Life in Prisim

A light reflects, refracts, rebounds.
The resulting refracted light, reflections and so on each too do the same.

The self is similar in the way she refracts to form the appearance of many.
To a point even where separation from source can feel concrete.

Looking back on other reflections this one can feel them wrong, can see in another the enemy.
Draw back to the source, this problem is not there.

Calm please

As the still viewer, the one who witnesses the world, the one who hears music, the one who smells the air. Also as the watcher of the churning mind. That watcher is bliss -but- for the churning mind.

If you respected silence you'd turn off music, if you respected simplicity you'd sit with nature. If you respect your true self, you should calm the mind.

To have the mind in full activity in the presence of the self is to play drums as your baby goes to sleep.

The self


If I placed a mirror in front of you. You would not see yourself.



Tuesday, 22 December 2009


Is anything more strikingly obvious than being?
So undeniable as being?

Who died?

The body rots.

The memories of you that are left behind with others, fade.

Yet you live on.

Not the body, not the mind, you were, before birth, through life and after, only ever the same. A case of mistaken identity took place and an association with body and mind resulted.

Realise who you were always and will always be. See how you can not die.

Why seek happiness?
When the quest only defines sadness!
Breathe deep and sit,
For this is it!

A polite kick in the face

What are you doing this work on? Who are you seeking to fix?

Anyone working, seeking, has not yet recognised the true self.

And once recognized, they see, it required nothing from them!

Harsh words maybe? Not at all, the most compassionate!

Zen Dog

I scratched my dogs belly and she grinned.

I walked away and she looked for a second, put her head down and slept.

I picked up her lead and she stood alert to walk.

This is a Master of Tao, spontaneous, non-attached. With a hairy suit, cute eyes and bad breath.

Drawn in

She drew the light of the world into her eyes, closed them to trap it, then quickly dropped the world into her heart where it vanished.


Wednesday, 16 December 2009


A heart wanted to know great heights, but did not have the head for it.

A head wanted to know great love, but did not have the heart for it.

A hand wanted to touch the tree, but did not have the legs for it.

The legs wanted something, but could not put a finger on it.

You can't know this life, unless you came from stillness.

You can't know suffering, unless your root is bliss.

You can't feel separate, unless unity is you.

Only this moment, undefined, is true.

It always gets there in the end


All conversations end in silence.

To not try to be is to be

Attempting perfection, you show all your faults.

Accepting your faults, is perfection.

Aiming to please, failure.

Being, easy.

You will be peaceful !!

A group of pacifists wish to bring about their idea of peace.

When challenged on the contradiction they forced a smile.

Fast asleep the two men are equal.
Dreaming now, one is rich and one has nightmares.
Awake now one is a street dweller and one a business man.
Come the evening, one is singing and one is drowning in guilt and stress.
Fast asleep again, they are equal.

Home Schooled

A man with a job and a house sits on his bed and meditates. 'How happy I am' he thought as he slipped into mediation 'that I did not join the monastery and have their bell disturb my peace'.

Where am I?

Q. “What keeps me from my true self?”
A. “That Question.”

Body Work

Your body is the river bank, wishing to become the sea.

How silly, this solid fixed body.

Your energy and life source is the water passing over your banks, not fixed.

Ah, the flow, goes on and on.

One day you may see that you are the water and release the hold of the bank.

The flow no longer moves when I am with it.

Leaving the body behind, you flow – and become the ocean.

Released from rigidity.

Dead Body

An old man who has realised his true self decides in his old age that he would like to let the body finally rest. He informs his daughter of his plan to let the body slip away.
His daughter brings food and medicine to his bed side and offers it to him.

He says; “Who is the medicine for? You are trying to keep this body alive so that it may hold me prisoner longer. I know bliss and I know this body is not I. Let me cast off the body now, do not hold up the prison walls. There is nothing left for this body to do, the spirit is happy now to be set free. Live on and keep your body healthy, let this one return.”

Self Governance for the world


Governing well is to put away the books and inhale once between each exhale.

3 good men

He of good body said to he with the mind: You don't have a good body.

He of good mind said to he with the body: You don't have a good mind.

He with good spirit, sat.


He with good body had poor body image.

He of good mind had many demons to work on.

He of good spirit, was of good spirit.

The fool has a goal.
The gifted person of bliss has no aims.

plain again

Two enlightened people decide to talk of truth. Both end out thoroughly confused!

“What chance do people have with books?” One laughs.

“Better born deaf in a field than born to a religious house” Says the other.

A grain of truth

One grain of salt and you know it is salt.

One grain of sugar and you know it is sugar.

Drowning in consciousness, yet so few can taste it.

It is;

You! Awareness! the infinite universe! boundless in creativity and possibility,

Thinking about salt and sugar.
