The Genius Of Love

IMG_0228

I am walking and contemplating while snow falls and a squirrel eyeballs me cautiously. And it feels so right as I think of the continuous day by day unfolding of those inner stirrings, those inner cosmic dances that never cease while non-stop wasting occurs in the physical realm of existence, day in, day out. There is reverence. It is a gift, no doubt. It is justified. It is liberating. It is transformative, that is if we are aware, if we acknowledge and believe.  And new mercy is evident when we wake up every morning, breathing in and out, making us conscious of the moment and the blossoming moment-to-moment silent passing of the seasons of life. And it only tells me one thing: that it is about love. The kind of love that is deep, steady, consistent, humbling, nurturing and comforting. And that kind of love rules, no matter what. That’s the genius of that kind of love.

That Deep Love

IMG_9795

I don’t know the logic of the universe as to why there is this mysterious geography that separates peace and suffering. I don’t know why people have to endure harsh times many times over in their lifetime. But do we really need to know why? Or do we just have to carry them and continue existing because of love? Deep in my bones, I just simply know that there is an inner renewal happening day by day in each one of us and I suspect that that renewal is one of the reasons why there is that mysterious geography between peace and suffering. One thing I know though is that the mystery that creates the logic of the heart articulates the reason for that renewal. And it is about deep love. It is about truth. It is about justice. It is lightly snowing as I write this while the sun is in its blazing glory.

A Reflection Of Restoration

IMG_0251

Early morning. A faint bluish light. A profound transition. An unfolding of clarity, of our essential nature, of what is true. An opening up of consciousness and finding where we are, as we see, as we simply know. And it is moving towards wholeness. A beautiful reflection of restoration.

Simply Knowing

…and I was given the gift of simply knowing. And it is about faith.

A Way Of Seeing

IMG_0234

Icy behaviour. Cracks. A certain kind of brokenness, of scattered feelings. And yet really seeing it deeply can surprisingly elevate a kind of relating to a level of a benevolent oneness and untangle and soften the complexity of the situation, like a soft whispering of the wind to a leaf, and seeing how that leaf gently moves. And then I just saw two squirrels cavorting. And it’s just beautiful.

Silence Unto Silence

IMG_9761

The mind is clear. The mind is silent. And there is that other deep sense of silence. The mind surrenders to this vast and deep silence that is without borders and beyond everything.  And rapture happens.

And It Matters

IMG_1144

On a cold grey winter afternoon, the sun breaks in and spills over its light. It is a revelation without words. It is immaculate. And it matters, like a breath.
