Tranquility

Although my branches sway on the winds of time.
My center is still and timeless away from moving leafs.
My limbs are moving but my core stands still with you.
Sit by my side, bask in the shady stillness and take in the view.

The living water will refresh your tired feet, my bench is strong and stable. Rest close to that which radiates still peace and brings tranquility to all who sit. My bench is empty, my water clear and my sky is free, come sit and be one with me.Meditate by my side under the shade of stillness and feel the living waters flow in thee. 

Your tree lives and breaths time but its roots are planted firmly in Reality. Your life on the run, the world on your back, relax here and feel at ease. The water reflects the images of past illusions that are now under your feet. The sky has passing clouds of thoughts that when left alone won’t find a seat.

The still Awareness is always here your just focused on the world that is calling. Don’t finger the phone, don’t double click, or paper back now when peace is knocking. Its you turn to feel the waters, your turn to rest, your turn to know the view for its in you. Wake up child of the world, friend of God, and know that thy divinity lies with God.

You who identifies with decay, you who acts mortal, you who judges according to this. You are the fault, you need to stop, you need to change, for true love is lost in separation. Love is the common bond that lives through commonality not that which sees differences. 
Real love will recognize real love if you allow it, so brush off the dirt of old dominance’s. 

We will sit under the dark canopy in this empty decision less place and forget life. The headlines and the calling voices will cease, for the world will be a distant thought. You won’t want to leave the bench of timeless emptiness and beauty, so grab a seat. We will sit together above the fray for we have God’s grace that shelters us from the heat. 

The Riddles Between This and That (the Illusion and the Reality)

We are not, at our core, any of ‘this’, but we are ‘That,’ however ‘this’ is the opposite of ‘That,’ and since opposites clash, then ‘That’ doesn’t have any opposites like ‘this’ has here to oppose it, and its true, but ‘That’ is still connected to ‘this.’ ‘This’ is ‘That’s’ opposite and a seemingly solid connection while living, but spiritual books deny ‘this’ existence and call it an illusion. Should they really do that? I mean, since ‘That’ has no opposites, they refer to ‘this’ as false, then ‘this’ has no purpose at all, but it has a purpose. We use ‘this’ to become Aware of Being ‘That,’ to attain an all knowing Eternal Awareness of being, which can only come from a dip into ‘this’ place, then upon Realization we know what it means to be a One in All. So it does serve a purpose, because when faced with our opposite we work our way out of its grasp, thus becoming a knower of it, and through this process we discover our Being in the One and only true Reality. We will all have to dissolve, detach or surrender our personal reality for the One lasting Taste of Reality, so I guess calling it an illusion serves a purpose on the path, and it seems like the best way to go, despite the fact that this illusion is serving another purpose. Do we still call it an illusion because it sure fit’s the description or do we dare call it something else; its like a Self discovery battle field of opposites which always leads us to the pursuit of perfection in the wake of its destruction. Everything here will give us reason to look elsewhere, if you hang on to it, whatever it is, you will see it and your reasons for hanging on to it, decay in a slow painful death. Whatever you identify with here will disappoint you, because the real you only identifies with ‘That,’ and ‘this’ is what the mind identities with because it is made out of ‘this’.

Meditation or the art of devaluating the misidentification with ‘this’ within, is the spiritual path to ‘That’, because the mind thinks it owns this realm, and it doesn’t want to admit to its limitations nor its impending death. ‘That’ has to look away from ‘this’ (the mind) as well, so ‘That’ must see all of ‘this’ as a temporary illusion, connected for a reason, and ‘this’ also some characteristics of infinities which is related to ‘That.’ The common bond seems to be in infinite space, however it must separate somewhere before that into the transitory phenomenon, from Stillness to movement, because infinite space has moving particles, and there must be a transition zone. From Awareness to consciousness which is but a moving form of Awareness, from complete Stillness to the first subtle movement in consciousness, and at this location must be the transition zone, back and forth, which originated from Still Light (the reason, not a decision). To look, or to look away seems to be the ultimate question, to be content at looking at God, or to look away and be born. Because there is a connection to ‘this’ that is always there, unnoticeable, but present as long as the universe stays as ‘this.’ And the same transition zone holds true for here too, as in enlightenment, either you are happy with ‘this’ and attached to it or you’re spiritual enough to look away by focusing your attention on ‘That.’

 Look forward and don’t look back when you arrive in ‘That,’ and maybe we have mobility (forward) upon permanent dissolution into ‘That,’ however maybe not. I have totally accepted the fact that we are frozen in Eternal Stillness, unable to move besides diverting our attention, and this defies and debunks all spiritual myths that defied the properties of manifestation, but that’s the way it goes, it is, what it is. Reality sees Reality and is known by Reality only, and the illusion sees the illusion but it is known by Reality and the illusion, until the illusion dissolves (enlightenment) then the illusion submissively understands its limitations, and falls into order. Yet the laws of ‘this’ rule supreme in manifestation creating an independence and freedom that is very much needed, a noninterference clause that is necessary to keep them pure, free and separate, and a transition point that makes you commit to ‘this’ or ‘That,’ until you finally understand, then you won’t look away from ‘That’ to live and feel vulnerable in ‘this’ again.

The Chalkboard Metaphor

Let’s try a metaphor on for fun, this is the one about the blackboard and chalk. The blackboard is a symbol for Eternity or God, always still, always the same, attribute less, nothing changes, then it became Aware of being, and when the light of Awareness dawned, it in turn, just from being Aware, not only created the chalk but set the chalk in motion. Chalk went on to draw different forms upon the board, that eventually evolved into, colors, pictures, words and a multitude of moving objects. The chalk was know as energy or consciousness, which is but a moving form of the original consciousness, or from an Awareness of being. Each one of us is a tiny part of the blackboard, and each one of us is viewing the chalk designs on the surface and they are temporarily a part of us, which is a moving expression of us, or our personal worlds. The chalks essence is constantly moving, but the blackboard is still and unaffected by the movement, and once all the chalk is erased (enlightenment) from the board, then the blackboard realizes that it wasn’t the chalk at all, but the blackboard all along, and it never changed or went anywhere. The identity to the chalk is no longer needed nor is it seen as important as ones true identity. Now the blackboard knows for sure that it is the blackboard and talks like a blackboard should, and the chalk is seen as it is, a condition of time and thus not real or pure like the backboard is. The blackboard realizes that it was not only Eternal, indestructible, unchanging (because any form, or movement is change in action which is conditioned by the chalk or time), and Godly, but also beyond the mind, senses or feelings. One solid mass of Eternal Reality that is impenetrable by moving energy thus making it omnipotent and more powerful then anything manifested. One single backdrop to all of manifestation that is beyond all physical perception, which remains absolutely Still, formless and forever pure, so that the dance of manifestation can take place. If it wasn’t all powerful and still like that, it wouldn’t be able to hold up the universe with its great weight, or hold it all together. You can see that there has to be something other than the give and take of energy, something bigger then the negative and the positive forces that we live in. And there is, and thank God for that, because without the eternal blackboard and the chalk of light there is no universe or us.
