Motionless Movement

In effort we lose grace. Just a few words to the wise.

Life Is Worth Living

Life is said to be worth living, but isn’t that what Life is all about anyway? Confounding simplicity creates the hardships which we gleefully throw at ourselves each and every day. The only hardship that exists is the effort in which we place…

Carried Away

In interest we rise and in boredom we fall. Our minds are like silly putty, capturing and embracing all that our senses spy and when change repeats itself, when lack of new, interesting, stimulus becomes vacated, our minds return to it’s…

Grinding Corn And Being Somewhere Else

Exerting effort, we tend to strive with the expectation of overcoming. What audacity! Expectations are the attractions which the Magician uses to capture interest and, of course, attention. It’s what the show is really all about.

What Are You Doing Tonight?

Speaking, we hear the call, but upon closer inspection we realize it is nothing but the echoes of our own thoughts, reverberating in our empty space. Appearances, as always, are as deceiving as we are. Within the empty space, we purchase all…

Seeking Flotational Devices

In the time of dreamers, vistas unfold and as the onrushing future makes it’s way through us, we gaze in wonder at the recognition of ourselves onstage. Separately, we are a joy to behold, if only to ourselves. Conjuring a destiny, we seek…

Wheel Of Life

I am the pliable self. Whatever you wish for me to be, I will become that. I blend in easily and become a part of the landscape with no conscious effort. Each individual sees me as they wish to see me. I am what I should be, no more and no less….

Taking Root

A hope, a dream, a far away place, where are the souls in which the turning of life take refuge. From where does the communication so eagerly sought, find a new home in which to blossom and bear the fruit of understanding. Alone in the mist of…

Winded From Effort

Lost in a world where shadows rule, can there be such a thing as ‘enlightenment’? All exists for our own selfish pleasure and yet the real becomes illusionary in appearance. Where is the salvation so eagerly surmised? Where is the role of the…

Efforting

Efforting to give life to our imagery, there can be no existence otherwise. Striving to ‘forget’, our imagination runs wild with concepts and ideas and we thereby become the servant of the those very same efforts. How convoluted must we become…

Are You Having A Good Day?

"Who Am I?" Ask the question and determine the response received. If the echo comes as "Me" or "I", then the response mechanism being employed is none other than the imagination of the mind. Stillness of a response indicates something else. That…

Points Of Power

There is the quietness of emptiness, a peacefullness that creates a tranquility of no-effort. Within that effortless embodiment, nothing moves, nothing rejoices, no demands are given or received. There is no bliss, there is no pain. All that…

Enslaving Ourselves To Freedom

Freedom exists for the benefit of those who have become enslaved by their own wishes. "Ask and ye shall receive." is a timeless axiomatic way of Life. Enslavement partakes of entrapment in terms of definition and purpose. There is no where to…
