that there is nothing to do

but

this

nowhere to go

but

here...

no one to  become but

who

I

AM

the

mind-crippling

Fear

at the

Root

of all

Human

   Ills

   believe me

  It

was not

PRETTY

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…

 I can tell you one thing for sure

Life cannot be figured out in your head…

The solutions lie not there…

Neither is your mind the dwelling place of

Wisdom or true understanding…

The place in which to spend your

Time, attention and energy

Is your breath…

The in and out of your breathing

There lies the answer to

Every prayer

Every need

Every lack

Every pain

Every misery

Every dark night of the soul

The answer is always right there…

Nearer than your heart

It’s in the breath...

Breathing in and letting gobreathing in and letting go...breathing in and letting go

Breathing in and letting go
