Prayer answered..


Heaven appearing as Earth..already

Prayer answered..

Simply not-two...

Shakespeare...Sonnet 29


When, in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes,
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself and curse my fate,
Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,
Featured like him, like him with friends possessed,
Desiring this man’s art and that man’s scope,
With what I most enjoy contented least;
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
(Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth) sings hymns at heaven’s gate;
       For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings
       That then I scorn to change my state with kings.

~~Shakespeare, Sonnet 29

Alan Watts on Jesus...a Resonating empty story...


The story of Jesus

Empty and full

Are words which may

Introduce Jesus

And ourselves

As the stories we are...

Alan Watts:

Awakening and dying...


Of course, when even considering ideas like
there are no things...
there are no separate events
there is no cause and effect...
there is no self
there are no others...
That would mean that everyone you love
and all you have loved
Your beautiful wife
your beautiful daughter
Your parents grandparents
all your friends
all your favorite things
all your beautiful memories
your entire life would be illusory!
What a terrible loss!
That is why awakening feels like dying!

One experience...


At any moment we feel that we are having one experience, and yet experience always appears as a multiplicity and diversity of objects. From where does this unity of experience come from? From our true nature of awareness, the light of pure knowing. In reality, experience is a single, intimate and indivisible whole, in which neither a knower nor the known are found. All there is to experience is knowing, and it is knowing that knows this knowing: knowing knowing only knowing. The common name for this absence of duality or otherness is love or beauty.

— Rupert Spira



"Even if I were to procure just one more moment of genuine happiness, that would still be one more than nothing. Perhaps the mere fact that we are cognizant of anything at all is reason enough to celebrate life. How many other combinations of matter can do what we can? What other molecular entity possesses the capacity to laugh; to love; to ponder its own existence; to appreciate works of music, art, literature; to aspire, to hope, to dream? Even if it should turn out that we are just spiritless atoms cavorting in the void, we are still matter's paramount form, the height of its complexity, its crème de la crème—nature's chosen macromolecules. Besides, even if it should turn out that what we call happiness is nothing more than the manifestation of strictly physiological processes, do we experience it any less? Whether I'm mortal or immortal, a spiritual entity or a spiritless organic machine, are these not my experiences? Either way, am I any less me? Moreover, the mere fact that I can never know what each next moment will bring means that, as mechanical, as life might be, mine remains a wondrous and beautiful mystery."

The word


Perhaps overused

Is often displayed

In an attempt to

Explain the


In the manner of 

A paradoxical

Is..and..Is not...

"This" as paradox...



Appears as

A fluid symphony

Of paradox...

Nancy's poetry

Appears as a

Symphony of

Flooding paradox

And Love...

Elephant in the room..


"Elephant in the room" is a phrase often used in

speaking of some unnoticed  large entity which

is in this very room.  Frank McCaughey may be

on to something in using this term  non duality 

discussion.  The elephant isn't obvious, until it is.

Perhaps it might replace the word "This, "which 

has something of the same usage.  (Perhaps not!) 

See Frank's video in comments below.)

Seems arising 

Canceling expectation..

If dismissal is paused

There may be a

Feeling of freedom

And of love..

Analyzing further

A fleeting absurd

as afternoon darkens

shadings lengthen

bright indistinction

fading to boundaries

deepening feelings of

past times and

bittersweet joys

Disappear and

Appear as

Guises of separation...


It seems there are:

~Illusions of separation


~Appearances of separation


~Both are storied as  

Indescribable This...

No such thing...


There's no

Such thing

As anything

Or everything...



The arts may be

~Suggestions of emptiness

   for the seeking individual..

~Proclamations of emptiness

   for no-one...

~These two stories appearing

   as This..

The Computer protests:

No such word..

But it seems it has

A role on the stage

And it may resonate: 

Nothing languaging...

Me and my senses..


"Me' and my senses

Seem as departure

For spiritual ventures..

Ventures which come

With a traveling 

Companion: that

Illusory separation...




With a shift

In perspective



Story seems 



Feels as 


For solid

Characters playing

Roles..framed by

No time and space



Empty stories

Not knowing

Only happening







No teachings..

These empty words

May seem to

Pop up



From nowhere

Seeming to

Incite peace with

No understanding...
