What you do not.

PICT0126.JPG

Instead of what you need; what about what you do not?

In a world of depressive materialism; poverty and pollution

I dont intent to tread on trend; pretenders I severed an end

Theres a fine line drawn in the sand; trampled

Without mindful intent; a spiritual glance

What is the zen and the trance; compassion enhanced

And when does my third eye open; to notice what controls my emotions

Carefully ponder; what I do and what I do not need

Eat, sleep and breathe

Clothing and shelter and ease

Calming peace and honourable deeds

No harm. No foul.

What I do. And what I do not need.

Here and There ; GreatMiddleWay

Here and There;
Post by Tashi Nyima

 

As a river, when full, must flow

and reach and fill the distant plain,

so what is given here, indeed,

will reach and bless the beings there.

As water on a mountain top

must soon descend and fill the plain,

so what is given here, indeed,

will reach and bless the beings there.

 

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Nidhikanda Sutta, Khuddakapatha

Laid in an ocean and exhaled the sky.

Laid in an ocean and exhaled the sky…

Sweet meditation; Like Lucid Dreams

Thank you for these.

Drops of rain.

Fall upon me

As I inhale the ocean and exhale the breeze

Such ease…

How the water caresses my body and light tantalize my eyes

Laid in an ocean…and exhaled the sky.

….

After my mediation

I make a humbling plea

I am now

Placed on my knees

And bowing in threes

Taken away

And I return to the ground

I seeked absolute nothing

*Absolute was found.*

The Inner Child by Goodnightnina

In a sense I am lost; feeling childlike in constant exploring of earth and oneself. I am, in a sense found; by my morality with love…and with compassion… I find myself restless in time, for time is complex. The mind cannot comprehend time nor comprehend anything in completeness. The Tao of existence unwordable, incomprehensible…

We are not all knowing beings but the fabric of existence has underlying comfort whether it is productive or not. Even terrible mistakes create great lessons. The child knows love most, your inner child craves it.

Life is complex in a mathematical sense but extremely simple in the aspect of conscious thought.

That being all that we have.

I trust this universe more than I trust myself. I say this in a sense that I do not feel in control, but the rain outside my window… it is bringing life to the earth; as is the sun, moon and the stars. Endless bounded in infinity… ; that is something I can trust. Allowing the universe to take control helps me in meditations and allowing what I cannot change.

Simplicity is bliss and sometimes in my childlike absence of self awareness, like when I draw a picture I am not drawing a picture. If I am absent and I perhaps simply am: the picture.

But as my inner child finishes the creation.

I must return to the grounding incomprehensible earth.

Here I am again.

Open skies…

Open your eyes

The sky carries

Aloft the breeze

Us and we;

Bound to the infinite starscape

Natural infinity

For you and I to give birth

To the reborn Sun

Over and over again

The clarity cascades

Eliminate corruption and pain

“Peace”.

It evaporates the evil upon the earth

We’re on that verge of eclipse

Close your eyes and imagine

Our Rebirth.
