I have spent a lot



let go

When meditation frees us, ot does not turn us into something better or different, nor does it get us somewhere. Rather, meditation allows for an undoing of our controlling behavior, an undoing of limiting beliefs, an undoing of habitual physical tensing, an undoing of defensive armoring, and ultimately, an undoing of our identification with a small and threatened self.

Day Dream

Veraiconica's Blog

Quand le temps s'arrête / when time stops

One day people will touch and talk perhaps
And loving be natural as breathing and warm as
And people will untie themselves, as string is unknotted,
Unfold and yawn and stretch and spread their fingers,
Unfurl, uncurl like seaweed returned to the sea,
And work will be simple and swift
as a seagull flying,
And play will be casual and quiet
as a seagull settling,
And the clocks will stop, and no one will wonder
or care or notice,
And people will smile without reason,
Even in winter, even in the rain.

Once the realization is accepted
that even between the closest human beings
infinite distances continue,
a wonderful living side by side can grow,
if they succeed in loving the distance between them
which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.

Zen Flash

“Every word, every image used for God
is a distortion more than a description.”
“Then how does one speak of God?”

“Through Silence.”
“Why, then, do you speak in words?”At that the Master laughed uproariously. He said,

“When I speak, you mustn’t listen to the words, my dear.
Listen to the Silence.”

~ Anthony de Mello ~

The Year’s End

West Village Winter Scene

Another year slips by
one that brought many things
most good some not so good
just life nothing more or less

Reflecting back as we are prone to do
really makes not one scrap of difference
seldom do we change our path
blindly charging on same mistakes made

The New Year is nigh now make your resolutions
yet when you reflect back did you keep them?
we start out with the best intentions
but falter on the path distracted by life

Will we do any better this new year?
or are our ways set hard and fast in stone?
we have self will, we have intelligence
maybe time to apply it and stop being sheep.

Who am I? Why am I here? How can I make a difference? Am I living my best life in this span of time I am here on this plane? When we examine our lives, we become aware of the questions seeking answers. We were born into this world knowing what our purpose is and the lessons we have incarnated to learn. In a brief span of time, we forget why we are here and begin to struggle to accommodate the physical plane as our individual spirits and those on the other side of the veil cognizant of our life plan wait in contemplative awareness as we stumble and then regain our footing. Now is the time to light a candle and sit in meditative silence, listening to the informing spirit of our essential self. Namaste!
