shape of the moment

reality is a self-knowing presence,
it is the One Beingness 
composing and decomposing
the various dimensions of life.

don’t discard what you have seen or understood,
in the hopes of finding something better-than-this-moment;

the quest to end that sense of lack
does not end in the acquisition of a ‘thing’

it comes to its resolution in the other direction…

when we finally, finally begin to accept that
what we deeply want is closer to home than any thing.

there can be a type of discomfort that arises when Being what you are –
like residual habits of mind and feeling that come knocking for attention…

stay.

it requires courage and sometimes a bit of inner fortitude.

gumption, maybe.

just notice the wavering for now.

everything is consciousness.
there is only consciousness.

stay home.

the resistances of the mind can feel torrential;
but remain in your heart,
in the Silence of Awareness,
expressing itself as

this sensation
this breath
this moment

stay here.

there’s nowhere else You can be.
but let’s not pretend anymore,
to be anything other,
than the shape of this moment,

and what lies beyond it.

without formula

how would I move in the world if my body was an expression of happiness?

how would I speak and what would I say?

how would my interactions be coloured if all there is, is Love?

what would my thoughts be like as expressions of the intelligence that creates?

how would I look out at this world, present only in my heart, Awareness itself?

~~

upon the realization that there is only one reality – a conscious, aware reality that perceives all experience within itself, made of itself – thus opens a new door to what we could call ‘spiritual practice’. instead of being driven by lack into the hopes of attaining happiness in some foreign future, the ground has shifted, and the base from which we operate is Peace and Fulfillment…from there, how do we realign all aspects of our lives with the Love of it?

there’s no formula.

the moment arises as it does, experienced as this play of light within the perceiver; and the body, mind, and world act as they do – servants either to impersonal love or to the belief in fragmentation.

non-duality is the realization of the beginning. the rest is an expression of universal freedom channeled through the individual mind. a practice that comes from this joy, in my opinion, can be an expression of this universal symphony, played as if there were an individual musician possible, when all arises in this creative sea of cosmic silence.
