Powerlessness...(Wayne Liquorman)


The paradox
Of nothing appearing
As everything..
Expressed in different forms..
Non-personal appearing as that
Not-2 appears as
A seeker's longing...

“Perhaps you have noticed the amazing paradox; as we recognize our inherent personal powerlessness, ‘new power flows in.’ … Once we know ourselves to be Ocean in the form of wave, we become free to be ourselves in a way we never dreamed possible. It is as if we had spent our life driving with the emergency brake on and suddenly it is off… The enduring paradox and wonder of a spiritual awakening is the return of power. But this power has a completely different feel to it. It is impersonal. Without the bondage of self, the power of the Ocean plays out without resistance.”
--Wayne Liquorman from The Way of Powerlessness
