Today…As I Sat In The Silence…

I realized that

I...

We

Either live in

Knowledge

Wisdom…

And

Understanding …

Or

Die

in

   Ignorance

The

Choice

Is

   Ours

And therein lay the

Limits

of our

   Human

Power

And

   Fate

 

I Seek Within…

and find

both the

courage

and the

trust

to take

one

more

step

   forward…

into

the

   unknown

Today, I Am Learning…

to live in

peace

balance

and

harmony

despite the

doubt

confusion

and

   uncertainty

   inherent in the living of human life on planet earth…

for therein lay the only path to:

health

vitality

and

joy

in the full

ex-pression

of

    BEING…

from the

   inside…

   out

It’s Funny…Funny Peculiar…Not Funny Ha-Ha…

how everything in life becomes

clear…unconfused…simple…and quite evident

once the

MIND

has been

stilled…cleared…opened

to

receive

and then

   release…

      just like the breath…

   in and out…

   in and out…

   thus…

one becomes an

intermediary

between

Life

   ItSelf…

and one’s

   world…

Today…

I cease my attempts

to construct a new and different

future

based upon the same

old

blueprints

from the

   past

Today I Listened Deeply

I quieted the

   Inner chatter…

Shut down the

   Drunken-monkey-mind…

And using my

Heart

As a

Listening Apparatus

I tuned into the

Inner Silence

at the

Core of my Being

 

I am learning daily how to hear

   Truly…

  And thus become the

Human Receiver

   I

 Came

This

  Way

   To

         Be...

none

of

   it…

not one moment of the entire

77

years

of

it

was ever about

the

writing

or

the

   doing...

it was

 always…

in

all

  ways…

solely

about the

   being...

about the

experience

itself…
