now this now that

A billion raindrops fall and hit the ground, most shatter to form more.

Some big, some small, some microscopic;

All reflect what is around them, and only that.

Look into the rain, see the clouds on the lake.

When an animal needs water, not tied to reflecting, the water absorbs itself into new life.

What are the odds


...on anything?

Now IS the future. Enjoy!

This is as far into the future as you will ever be.

Knowing today that I would need certain proteins I planted one tree in a field of hundreds in a farm 3,000 miles away from my home and 50 years before the birth of this body. I ensured safe transit of the cargo and yesterday I picked up a bag of nuts from a store near my house. Today all I did was go to the cupboard, empty some nuts into a bowl and eat them. Tomorrow I will be partially made of this new protein.

A little work each day, a little reward too.

That said it.

An awakened old lady looked into the eyes of the newborn child and shared a moment that no one else could appreciate.

Spirit Water

The spiritual cloud thinks itself superior to the falling rain but it wishes to be vast and unbroken like the ocean.

The cloud weeps as it tumbles to the Earth as droplets.

Plants animals and rivers make use of the fallen rain. The rain takes these new forms and sees the clouds over head.

As a plant the rain wishes for the cloud to turn to rain. Also as duck and as fish.

Once used, the rain is released from the animals and the rivers it makes its way to become the ocean.

Now it feels lost in the oceans depths. The ocean holds onto the rain for years but also allows gallons to evaporate from its surface to become clouds again.

The Ocean sees itself as master as it draws the rivers and produces clouds.

Lost in its self importance the ocean fails to see how it is used by all to cleanse their waste. The ocean is always in turmoil with tides and waves.

A clear lake to the East enjoys its separateness and its stillness. Soon though, as no river draws it to the ocean, the clear lake becomes stagnant.

Some rain in the sea remembers how when it was rain it washed away dirt, cleansed the land and fed the animals. It sees how the great ocean is a big cesspit of other peoples cast-offs and wonders why the cloud desires to be the ocean and weeps when it becomes rain. Some rain decides that the cloud is inferior and feels happier in an Earthly incarnation.

The clouds superior, the rain cleansing, the lake so still, the ocean so vast.

Which is better?

It is all just water. Alone they are nothing, in cycle they never stop giving.

The path to Enlightenment

Where you go is the way.

When you map it out it makes no sense, and those who follow those maps are lost forever.

hit me again

If you have a bad finger, then later in the day you will hit it again.

If you have a bad outlook, then things will come to frustrate you.

Do you get the massage?

Forever looking for praise, the person would pat everyone they saw on the back and hand out praise.

After some time people would seek him just to get a back rub!


No praise was returned to him.

After giving up seeking for praise, he found it all around him.

nothing lasts


There will come a day when "[insert item here]" is no longer important.

I don't know!

A wise person once said "I don't know" and he was so so so right that everyone ignored him and went to find something more complicated instead.

Seen as separate; wants, needs, troubles, addiction, affliction, ....

Seen as one; No concerns.


Is the world separate? real? me? illusion? See above.

calm rooted


Having found inner calm, and found the root to wonder: it is impossible now, to find any moment, slightly free from wonder.

Subtle Truth

Truth will capture you. You don't need to look. In fact looking will make it hide.

No method exists. Methods only seek to give a pacifier to the ego in the hope that once pacified it will not stand in the way of the the truth.

Meaning of life


The state and the answer are simultaneous. Lose one, lose both.

Awakening: If your path relies on books, you would pass an exam in it. Only a quiet, unquestioning mind has it.

Philosophy: When you settle on a label, you loose your suppleness. You stiffen up and wait for the world to consume you.

Spontaneity, no plans, freedom

Was the best thing, at the best time, the most excellent fun time, just the greatest part of the most wonderful great thing that ever happened to you… planned?

death illusion

It is an illusion that death would be a drawn out affair “until the end of time itself”. That illusion is due to the 'life' side of the equation containing the vivid illusion, 'time'; so leading to you perceiving false concepts of death as relative to that 'time-illusion', which at its worst, can seem to drag.

At the time of a natural thought there is often a good answer or a spontaneous action with no interference. The mind, however, can monitor the nervous system and memories of previous monitoring. This ‘feedback loop’ gets you; thinking, in trouble, analysing; pulling the past and future fallacies into, and thus vastly cluttering, the otherwise pleasantly fun, but not seen that way at the time, eternal-timeless-moment.

eat me

Nothing exists 'of itself' but only in relation to everything other than itself.

You/It die with every death, are born with every birth, consume yourself, and depend entirely on each other for the 'experience of experiencing'.

self experience

Due to 'It' being, in its purest sense, 'One and All' – and what can see or experience that? 'It' reincarnates as both environment-suitable-for and Experiencing-organism-of.

...over and over, just for the pleasure of it.

really who?

The 'one you are' is 'that which is'.

Inseparable, the same.

As soon as we are talking about them and us, peace can only deteriorate.

crowned with simplicity

At the front of my head are thoughts of this and that. I don't much care for these.

In my heart is the world as one and here I reside.

In the centre of my head is the bliss where the fountain of the world is cast upwards from the heart.

So this is where I keep things simple and a foolish King wears a golden crown.

My name?

I see a lady over there. Just a lady passing by.
She comes over and introduces an ego. She says;
“Hi, you saw my body floating by but I am Ego called Name.
What is your Ego Name?” She enquires.
I stand silent.
She says; “My Ego Name does Job, What Job does your Ego Name do?”
I stand silent, but a thought occurs.
“I am not drawn to say a Name, I am the universe, acting, undivided. I do not Do a thing.”

Hot head

The mind can be seen as the air filling the open sky.

Our mind is the air inside a hot air balloon (open at the bottom - so joined but separate)

The ego then is the flame at the bottom of the hot air balloon that stirs the mind up into the balloon.

Overly inflated, hot headed, big head, full of hot air... all make sense in this analogy.

Breathing for peace

** always take care of breathing exercises, like any exercise, don't over do it **

With your next inhalation take a little more air and a little more time.

With the next exhalation take a little more time and expel a little more.

*Gradual* increase each time, don't rush to extend.

Repeat until you are jerking the final step of the 'in' to get that little more, and twitching a cough to force out that last bit on the 'out'. When you are down to about 4 long "in's" and "out's" a minute, you will be deeply at peace.

A change in temperature on the top of your head probably means you are not exhaling enough, please stop and relax.

Mind is much more than that bundle of thoughts

Going by roughly what we think we know: The earth and inhabitants have changed many times over some thousands of years, people have been born, died, been great, been humble, been slaughtered and given love. The sun seems so active as to change rapidly, like a furnace or jet of fire making huge gulps and burps, specs on its surface enough to swallow planets. In all of that time, if anyone took a moment to look at the moon, it was the same: Peacefully and usefully reflecting light into the night.

The moon like a lake, serving in stillness, the sun enormous and raging. Space itself has held all of this. And beyond that, who can guess? Even if your mind, a tiny part of this greater mind, seems turbid and active, just consider the stillness of the moon and all of space.

When the river is active we don't try to stop it, we can sit by the lake. When the sun is too hot we don't stand and shout at it, we take shelter. When the mind is raging, we don't provide it with new activity or attempt to contain or pacify it, we just draw to the root and let it be.

Don't fight fire with fire, don't fight Yang with Yang.

Yin Yang.
