The Dancer and the Danced

We are being danced
Played and vibrated

We have given ourselves an identity
Given a name to the nameless we are

A dancing pattern of particles
Stardust gathered from the vast
Circling an imperceptible black hole, a void
At the center of our constellation

We are a universe, each one a world unto ourselves
Billions and billions of worlds
Colliding, interacting,
Drawing towards and repelling

For one moment, cease giving a name to yourself
Rest as the nameless one
Be the dance

In truth
You are the player and the played
The vibrator and the vibration itself
Mesmerizing astonishing truth

Don’t dumb yourself down
By imagining you are just a small someone
You are all that is
Eternity gathered up as a unique expression
What more do you want?

The Beloved Says…

The Beloved says…

Go forth into the realm of form
Be an emissary of the light

Seek to be unattached
Even as attachment
Wraps you in its arms
With its sweet and tempting offers

Seek to stay as love
Even as fear grabs you
By the neck
And breathing becomes labored

Seek mastery of desire
Even as the lure of comfort
And the veil of security
Draws you toward it

You will become lost in that place
And then, child of the light,
Remember to dance
Remember to laugh and sing
To grieve and cry in the devastation
To soak in the pouring rain
As it drenches your wounded heart

And let that remembering itself
Be the light that you carry
To share with others
Who have forgotten.

FIND THE DIVINE WITHIN

Friend, I beseech you,
Search within, without cessation,
Let your deepest longing
Become your living truth
Seek that divine connection
That is your essence
Remember, remember, remember
Do not allow trauma, wounding, deceit,
Abuse, conditioning and dream spell
To isolate you any longer

It is our inherent nature
To be guided and held
By our direct connection to the divine
It IS our living truth

Forgotten or stolen
We walk as ghosts
Incomplete and bereft
Traumatized and helpless

But all it takes is a flash of illumination
And remembering begins
And we fall into right relationship
This is our true authority
And it is our sole purpose
To shine the light of our knowing
Onto the darkness of the world.

BECOME NO THING AND FIND LOVE

My friend, if you want to touch reality
If you want to know the truth
And live as love’s open hand
First you will have to remove the dust
From your eyes
Take off the blinkers that narrow your vision
Open your heart to life
Drop to your knees in surrender
Release your righteousness
And fall into the deepest unknown
You will have to stop being someone
And become no thing
Belong to no one

You must fly into the sun
So the light burns off
Lifetimes of guilt and shame
If you really want what is true
You must stand naked and unashamed
Innocent and tender
Before the world
Only this humility will open the door
To love’s deepest truths.

ON HUMILITY

Only the humble man or woman
Can know the deepest peace

The righteous ego, built on its pridefulness,
Has no capacity to know humility

For true humility is the sacrifice
Of the righteous ego itself

And the righteous ego
Will do everything in its power
To maintain its own existence

Ironically, while the ego tells the world
That humility is the greatest weakness there is,
The truth is the opposite
And humility opens the door
To the miraculous natural power of the universe

While the ego is busy trying to acquisition
All the power for itself.

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth” (Matthew 5:5)
Blessed = Happy and peaceful
Meek = Gentle of spirit, humble and true
Inherit the earth = Become natural
