“Why climb when the heart has no debt to pay?”
When the heart has no debt to pay I am at peace with myself. Nothing is calling me out of myself. This peace is the basis for all realization. When the heart has no debt to pay there is space. Space is very subtle. To be aware of space is a state of fine sensitivity. Even finer than space is the sense of ‘I am’. Tuning in to that first sense of beingness cleanses my perception. The state of being where the heart has no debt to pay is the portal to resting in my own form. Yes, to recognize my own original form is to be on the borderline between form/no form and beyond both form and no form. Continue reading
conflagration: fire; especially : a large disastrous fire
“The fear… was of being overwhelmed, of disintegrating under a pressure of reality greater than a mind, accustomed to living most of the time in a cozy world of symbols, could possibly bear.”
We awake in the morning and almost immediately begin thinking of things to do in this day. After our particular personal morning routine we begin with various activities that keep us busy until we are tired and then retire for the night. This passage from Aldous Huxley’s “Doors of Perception” describes an”event” as he calls it, which is the perception of the stark Reality of primal energy that makes up manifestation. In this case, the manifestation – as conventionally termed – is a garden chair seen in a certain light. In his state of heightened awareness under the influence of the chemical mescaline, he perceives the ‘energy state’ that our mind/concepts then translate to a finite form which we label with the word “garden chair”. His report then continues to explore the feeling of overwhelm that he experienced: “The event was this succession of azure furnace doors separated by gulfs of unfathomable gentian. It was inexpressibly wonderful, wonderful to the point, almost, of being terrifying.” In the course of this exploration he comes to a description of the kind of intensity that a direct perception of Reality entails, which is why only in the state of “cleansed perception” is one able to bear it.

You have to expand your mind and really be in the state of abundance, know that this is not a physical limited universe…
“So in order to really “save” the planet, it’s not gonna help to be within the same paradigm of lack, within the same personality, and then try to move one boulder from over here to over there, because then it’s lacking over there! That’s the old paradigm. You have to expand your mind and really be in the state of abundance, know that this is not a physical limited universe, it’s not, it’s a dream. And as you change your vibratory state, you’ll change the manifestation thereof, and suddenly somehow there will be enough for everyone. Continue reading
Thich Nhat Hanh Calligraphy
“Ahimsa denotes an attitude and a mode of behavior towards all living creatures based on the recognition of the underlying unity of life.”
This says it all: Can I viscerally feel that the person, plant or animal (and even a supposedly inanimate object) in front of me is really part of the One Being which I am? Continue reading
