A question of healing..
Nothing / everything..
Everything is nothing
That's the paradoxical
Resonance..the end of the
Belief of separation..so
Healing consists of
No one intuiting
There is nothing to heal...
I need to know
About the world
About myself and
I am dedicated to
Know that I will
Be happier as my
I hope there is time
For me to explore
And satisfy my
Need to know..
And the talk
As peace passing
Modifies my better
Now updated plan
To know all about
The direct path
Is often not direct..
There are compromises
With separation's demands
Allowing the separate self
Just a little longer..
With a lofty goal
That directional self
Plays victim to a map of
Impossible it seems to
Recognize happiness as
The map and all...
In reality, it is not the separate self that searches for happiness or returns to its natural, relaxed condition. It is the pull or memory of its natural state that calls the separate self back to its innate condition of fully relaxed, inherently peaceful awareness.
— Rupert Spira
Nothing appears IN something else, it simply appears (seemingly). There is no ether or source, as that would require things/non-things that are separate, ie, source and that which appears in it. Source would be a non-thing, but non-things are things. A thing is that which is believed to have its own existential reality and all supposed things require other supposed things. The illusion of thingness is the illusion of separation.
Trying to see that this is a story is the story. The belief in being able to somehow control the story is the story. The story of desperate seeking is this ever emerging story and so is the shift called enlightenment. This ever emerging livestream is itself a story, as there is no one to pin it down as a truth or a reality and no one to even know it. It plays out similar to a movie, but with no audience, as what would seem to be an audience would be part of the movie. Yet, somehow this is known, but by no one, as the appearance of a belief that there is someone is itself part of the movie. This is utter annihilation, no footholds or handholds. Like free-fall but no faller and therefor no landing. This can't be given or taught or grasped or understood, as the very attempt at grasping and/or understanding is itself part of the scenery. This so-called movie can be compared to a dream. It has no actual reality or unreality as there is no one separate from it to even make such a determination. How is this that’s exactly what is, exactly what’s happening, known? The knowing and the scenery or known are one and the same....not two……no separation whatsoever.
In Kate Bowler’s bestselling memoir, readers witnessed the ways she, as a divinity-school professor and young mother, reckoned with a Stage IV cancer diagnosis; in her follow-up memoir, , she unflinchingly and winsomely unpacked the ways that life becomes both hard and beautiful when we abandon certainty and the illusion of control in our lives. Now, in their first-ever devotional book, Kate Bowler and co-author Jessica Richie offer 40ish short spiritual reflections on how we can make sense of life not as a pursuit of endless progress but as a chronic condition. This book is a companion for when you want to stop feeling guilty that you’re not living your best life now.
Written gently and with humor, is permission for all those who need to hear that there are some things you can fix—and some things you can’t. And it’s okay that life isn’t always better. In these gorgeously written reflections, Bowler and Richie offer fresh imagination for how truth, beauty, and meaning can be discovered amid the chaos of life. Their words celebrate kindness, honesty, and interdependence in a culture that rewards ruthless individualism and blind optimism. Ultimately, in these pages we can rest in the encouragement to strive for what is possible today—while recognizing that though we are finite, the life in front of us can be beautiful.
Do we resonate with certain speakers simply because they say what we want to hear?
This issue seems of major importance. Language has difficulties of
limiting expression of what can't be described, but also has a lingering effect,
which amounts to inviting attachment to the words. Thus, building the
foundation for a new religion. Yet, there seems to be no remedy, if a
remedy is what is sought. Resonance occurs when it occurs, whether
resulting from repeated words, or brand new words.
Filling the blanks...
_____ appearing as _____
How to fill the blanks~?
Nothing appearing as everything
Is the current mainstay~
On the right
Any word will do~but
On the left
No word is possible~
Unless an arbitrary word
Timidly stands in silence
With a departure imminent~
A word borrowed from the right
Such as oneness, or wholeness
Or consciousness, or awareness
Or maybe nothing
Could serve this temporary gig~
Yet perhaps only the blank
Will resonate~or not~~
“All there is is this ...
the one appearing as two
nothing appearing as everything
the absolute appearing as the particular
emptiness appearing as fullness
the uncaused appearing as the caused
unicity appearing as separation
subject appearing as object
the singular appearing as plurality
the impersonal appearing as the personal
the unknown appearing as the known
It is silence sounding and stillness moving
and these words appearing as pointers to the wordless
…and yet nothing is happening” ~Tony Parsons~
Some words of praise of Tony’s message, written by Richard Harris. Thank you Mr. Harris! ❤
“Throughout history of mankind’s search for the eternal truth there has emerged, every so often, a revolutionary and radical message that has transformed our whole perception of what it means to be alive.
Just such an event is happening in our midst at this time, and again it will only be heard by a few.
This living, vital communication is readily available. Its brilliant simplicity illuminates all that went before. Its essence is interwoven through the finer threads of every scripture but is overlaid with the dogma of the mind…and yet the boundlessness and vibrancy of its dynamic sweeps away all attachment to tradition, lineage and hierarchy.
Everything else today that purports to being a ‘spiritual teaching’ is absolutely not what is being communicated out of this perception. Even the recent abundance of so-called Advaita and ‘non-dual’ teachings are almost all still making a compromise with the seeker. They teeter on the edge of infinity looking for a way in. This message stands inevitably alone and apart, whenever and wherever it is communicated, and when it is really heard the fundamental and uncompromising difference is inherently recognized!
So here is a treasure in our midst, ready to be rediscovered. Here is the cup ready to be drunk. But, in the rediscovery we lose the seeking, we lose the dream, we lose all hope which is ourselves and what is left is priceless freedom!”

New Year celebrations may
Boost beliefs in the passage of
Time..of new beginnings..
Of the end of a year so
A new celebration occurs as
Time is celebrated as appearance
Just appearing for no one..with
Its edges and markings darting
In and out..seeming as the
Bubbling markup of Freedom...
