Conversations on this message..


Conversations on this message
Are exchanges of meaning about
A message with no meaning..
In this manner religion seeds are
Planted distorting 
Full-on simplicity by 
Word fences and adherents..
Departure from conversations 
May be a healthful antidote..
Another may be an expansive
Stance of welcome to all
Conversations as already not 
Excluded..which Facebook
Would likely prefer...  😁

The brain...


The brain..

Might a dream of
Separation be 
Found in a brain
Which objectifies 
What is seen even on
Cosmic scales..?
Or is the brain simply
An object appearing 
Among all those objects..?
Science reports finding a
Powerful machine owning
Astonishing feats..
Yet..after all is
Said and done
There remains
Not-knowing appearing as
All of these speculations
And questions..already
Arising for no one:
This simplicity 
And  freedom of
Not knowing 
What is happening...

Hope and Home...


Hope is expressed

In patience and struggle..

Seems a glimmer

Here and then gone

Midst all of that..

Home is timeless

Never not present

Yet not a thing..

Home paradoxically 


As patience and struggle

And hopelessness...

Such words try

To eliminate  

Appearing time..

Enter the dilemma:

Words and time

Seem inextricable..


Nothing is a word..

Nothing as suddenly

Possibly resonates...

An offered gift...


The message

Flies in the face

Of logic..


Not appearing as 2..

Makes no sense

But a paradoxical

Resonance is


An offered gift...

Sameness/difference resonating...


Sameness of

Different places

And times

Appearances all..

No-thing appearing..

A great relaxation


Thoughts of time wasted

Or of accomplishment

Appearing smoothly..

History's depictions


A bird chirping..

Copper leaves...


They arise as copper

With veins of memory..

The end of an apparent

Path from springtime..

Emptiness in full flower 

Appearing as leaves..

Simultaneously rendering 

The indescribable beauty

Of birth and death...

A Creed


Resonating with a Holy Emptiness, and the narratives of  such as Jesus, 

Who apparently shifted an assumed separation reality to a new perspective of

Emptiness (Heaven) appearing as everything, including judgments. which,

As emptiness, appear as the beauty of separation...

Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord, ... He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

Objects and space...


Objects appear

Space surrounding..

We are educated


And assume..

To hear otherwise

May give pause




And violence..

Life-long often..

No time...


No time

Birth and death

And life's dances


Paradoxically in

No time..

A dissonance to an

Inquiring mind

Moving to this

Darkening edge..


This time may be


With Peace as

No time...

This communication...


This communication

Not sent or received

Can resonate..

Seeming to resonate 

When questions

Never seem answered..

A spontaneous ending  

Of sender and receiver

As paradoxical messages

Melt the need for

More Q & A...

Stillness..Wallace Stevens



I lost myself
one dark December night,
when the white winter trees
were covered with snow
and the leafless boughs
were undefined.
I lost myself that night
yet I, unnamed, remained.
If you lose yourself
on a night like this,
when the white winter trees
are covered with snow
and the leafless boughs
are undefined,
it won't matter at all,
so never mind,
you will still be,
as you always were,
the nameless stillness,

~~Wallace Stevens

Death and dying...(Jean Klein)


Alice Ouzounian posted (Facebook)

“The real meaning of death and dying is completely different from that usually understood by these words. When one knows the continuum that is life, all perceptions (of which our body is but one) are felt as appearing and disappearing in awareness or consciousness.
This appearing and disappearing is the real meaning of birth and death. We are born every moment a thought or sensation appears and we die every moment the concept or percept disappears.
We die every evening before going to sleep, and we are born every morning. So we need to become acquainted with this dying, this letting-go of the objective world.
We should ask ourselves in our most profound intimacy: What is there before the thought appears? What is there when the thought disappears?
What is there before the body goes to sleep and before it wakes up?
When we observe closely, we will find, not the absence we took for granted, but a presence, a presence that cannot, however, be objectified.
It is too near, it is our nearest. If we really know how to go to sleep we will know how to die.
We will be already familiar with dying, already familiar with the dissolution of the born.
To do this, one must, before going to sleep, lay aside all qualifications.
We must become as naked psychologically as we are physically.
This means that we put aside all opinions, thoughts, worries, ideas before we sleep. It is an offering of all that we are not.
In letting go there is an expansion of mind and body and in all expansion is the fore-feeling of reality, our globality. This should be done each time we sleep until we find that, before the body wakes up in the morning, we are. Presence is already there.”
— The Book of Listening by Jean Klein, volume 3, page 67.

Paradoxical Portals..


paradoxical portals..


make no sense

seem as roadblocks 

to the inquiring mind

yet are invitations

to linger and 

perhaps to

resonate as the

Rejection of what seems dual..


Glimpses of the 

So called non-dual

Sometimes brings rejection of

What seems duaL.

Along with judgements of 

Those seemingly immersed

In the dual..

Hungering for the message:

No non-dual..No dual..

All are appearances arising

As This...

Photos and appearances...


Taking photos 


thoughts and


All of of it

Immediately this..

Clicking and  clicker 

Simultaneously appear

As  "CLICK..."
