Insight #619

Kelowna trip 014

.

 

Awareness

is

inherently transcendental,

it’s the doorway

to

ever-present freedom,

insight

&

inspiration;

where

is there a question

of

need

or

even liberation?

Insight #618

 Fall 2011 259

 .

What

can be more sacred

than

here/now: a book, statue, painting, place

or

person?

Please,

examine with attention

what’s

real – abandon

the

unreal.

Insight #616

Fall 2011 125

.

When attention

is

in

the

past or imagined future,

here/now

appears to disappear;

we

are

blinded

by

inattention.

Insight #615

Peachland Sept 159

.

You

won’t find

yourself in thought;

resting

in

thought

only elevates

the

degree of apparent suffering

you

seem to experience;

rest

as

awareness instead.

Insight #614

Peachland Sept 147

.

What’s unconditional

is

always

unconditional;

go ahead, exhaust

the

impulse of your seeking

until

you can rest

where

it

all began.

The

Self you are,

the One

that

reaches for something bigger,

something

better

or

something more;

already/always

enough.

Fall 2011 246

There
