As I Sit Gazing At My Beloved River…

038

A Storm A-Brewing – Photography by Toni Roberts

It occurs to me as I sit at my Altar…beholding in wonderment…the ever-changing beauty…Of my Beloved River

That the obstacles we humans now face…cannot be pummeled into submission by the sheer…Violent Force of our Human Will…or Anger 

But must be TRANSCENDED

 For beating our collective heads against the insurmountable mountain of troubles now confronting us…Will simply give us a headache

 Then how…I ask…do we escape the horror…the devastation of what is coming towards us from a-not-too-distant future? 

 

My questions are answered in the Silence

PeaceBe still…for Understanding is not contained within the rational mind of wo/man…

But accessed via the Silence of the Heart

 Breathe…Surrender…

Allow that same MysteriousIntelligentCreative Force

That moves your Beloved River

To also guide you…

 

The Way to Salvation shall then unfold

InAs…and Through…all that you ThinkSayFeel…or Do

 Trust

Allow

Release

 Let go of all false human notions of what is Wise…and Good… and Holy

 

Stop doing

Simply Be

For you are a Human Being

And not a Human Doing

 

Being

Therein lies the Secret and the Way Out of all this misery that Man has wrought

 Be…

We must simply learn…

how

to

Be…

Humanity’s Total Reliance On…

science

will be its undoing…

humanity was not created by science…

nor will it be made wholehealed

by science…

but by that which underlies all that is

I Can Now Understand These Words Of The Buddha:

before enlightenment

chop wood

   haul water…

after enlightenment

chop wood

   haul water

As I Sat In The Silence Today…

      as I sat listening within…

contemplating the new life that is about to enter the family…

so soon after the suicide of my beloved grandson…

   I heard these words:

“it is

BLOOD

and not the

CHURCH

or

STATE

that determines and defines what is

FAMILY

and the

“RIGHTNESS”

or

APPROPRIATENESS

   of relationships between and among humans…”

such is the strangeness that drifts into consciousness

when one’s mind sits idle and open…

such a re-making of one’s worldview

such a re-seeing of reality

and

re-ordering

of one’s

cultural indoctrinations

such strangeness

born of a mind and heart not engaged in the mindless madness of the world

such an exquisite awareness of what is

REAL

and what is

   NOT
