vertical line All is One. Therefore, one is all without needing another one to change into, duality.

This Oneness, or All, doesn't manifest through a desire for action or activity, but is witnessed through one's own experiences, of suffering, until all suffering is realized as borne, within compassion... a sacred letting, a being with and is in all. This openness connects us to, and with, One sound, or soundless awareness manifest in All, without cause.

Now, I have to wash my mouth out with some coffee, or just did.

vertical line Well, my mum's operation for breast cancer went well - then 6 weeks of radiotherapy an apparent success. 70 years old today and engaged to be married.  

Mum-in-law has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.  Her son has become her husband and she often asks for her mummy.

vertical line We care because we see oneness in all, or can. Then out of compassion we begin to feel lightness.

vertical line And an innocent spontaneity, like in that of a child, who is free of conditioning to "know", or learn of, other than intuit. The openness of children itself serves as an example of a vulnerable and vast  innocence. I write vulnerable, because the condition from which innocence arises is, or can be fragile, and that fragile nature of intuition is discouraged in most adults, because we are trained to behave a certain way, like sheep. Like wolves actually. Sheep or wolves... same thing, each one is, an arising from the one source.

But a conscious human acceptance, a questioning, of consciousness, gives rise to a spontaneous, beautiful creation of valuable insight. And squelching insight, is not the path, if what begins in innocence is to translate into adult experiences of  the ineffable domain, arising from. And I have found that I can't give it away, compassion can set the stage though, and one can witness the rebirth of innocence from there, but also the struggle of denial. Some have said that the heightened sense of neurosis is a fertile ground in which energy can be transformed through the chakras. But again, I'd have to get back to the main point of openness to utilizing energy over thoughts, or at least an awareness of both. Thoughts and energy do coincide together in awareness, the multidimensional field of awareness. To speak of it, write of it encourages validation, but first the openness must be the ground from which realization arises, that in itself requires a form of guidance. And where that guidance comes from is the unknown, so we focus to work in the now, which arises from the unknown.

Simply be present with innocence in the awareness of death. Sounds simple, and is, if we can let go of wanting something. As we stop desire, the master's way will appear, in every place we welcome it, there is no doubt in realization of this. What we make ready is a ground of awakening for all.

vertical line I know the pieces fit cuz I watched them fall away
Mildewed and smoldering. Fundamental differing.
Pure intention juxtaposed will set two lovers souls in motion
Disintegrating as it goes testing our communication
The light that fueled our fire then has burned a hole between us so
We cannot see to reach an end crippling our communication.

I know the pieces fit cuz I watched them tumble down
No fault, none to blame it doesn't mean I don't desire to
Point the finger, blame the other, watch the temple topple over.
To bring the pieces back together, rediscover communication

The poetry that comes from the squaring off between,
And the circling is worth it.
Finding beauty in the dissonance.

There was a time that the pieces fit, but I watched them fall away.
Mildewed and smoldering, strangled by our coveting
I've done the math enough to know the dangers of our second guessing
Doomed to crumble unless we grow, and strengthen our communication.

Cold silence has a tendency to atrophy any
Sense of compassion
Between supposed lovers/brothers

(Tool - Schism)
