  Do not go after the past,
Do not lose yourself in the future.
For the past no longer exists,
And the future is not yet here.
By looking deeply at things just as they are,
In this moment, here and now,
The seeker... continue...

Where are they taking you? To another door?

A friend once said:
I've seen the white walls of freedom
but never found that black door.

vertical line The desire to have another ceases when we accept silence or the one hand reaching without a need to control over another.

vertical line Another anything, it could be anything, desired. [Your] true nature desires for nothing more than is deserved, any more than is available whereas appropriate, for being full, being empty and being full again, in a Perfect Body Wholeness, being upon being upon being, alive, now and here, a breath alone with all, touching.

vertical line Anything perceived in light is there in darkness whether you see it or not. Things as it is, is, things as it is whether conditions are light or dark.

vertical line The black door is behind us, in going back to black. The source from which all light arises.

vertical line You assume to much. Must we reduce the universe to something we think we know?

.........If a tree falls in a forest and no one is there does it make a noise? An old cliche in philosophy but worthy of note mon the less. Similarly if nothing is real then that which we perceive in light isn't there either.

vertical line It doesn't matter. But who, like myself, has the desire to sit.? Who if anybody on earth just wants to sit? And just sits. I wake up to a new day and sit, that's it. Even if I am having a thing to do I'm actively sitting. My energy level is zero=infinity. Something happens to me, just sitting. I sit, I am a sitting being.
