Aug 24, 2019

direct knowing of the Mystery
the way to before I
Saying For Today: "I prefer simply to inspire others to love God as they best understand God, and honor the Beloved in every being. Why talk about what cannot be talked?"

Aug 23, 2019

Love ~ the great Unknown

Aug 20, 2019

Falling into the Well ~ the illusion of Enlightenment
no one to ask & no question to ask
Saying For Today: "To be Buddha is to realize you cannot be a Buddhist, have never been a Buddhist. To be Christ, one realizes he or she cannot be a Christian, never has been one. Buddha can only be Buddha, Christ only Christ. Why would Buddha need to be a Buddhist? Why Christ be a Christian?"

awakened craziness
this wild loving
Saying For Today: "This loving, sane eccentricity can only arise from the Heart, for the Heart can express equally everywhere, for it belongs nowhere. No one can capture the Heart.

Aug 18, 2019

Giving & Receiving ~ Prasad for the Beloved
Saying For Today: "There is no separation between what you give and yourself, it is a wholly-giving. You are putting yourself in the mouth of Grace, saying, 'Consume me in Yourself.' ... This is wonderfully crazy, a beautiful craziness, a wild loving. There is a wise recklessness about this, in which is really no risk at all."

Aug 17, 2019

humor ~ the light touch
frivolousness & appreciation & amazement
Saying For Today: "Are we listening? Can we hear the cry of Creation? This cry is our cry, for we are Creation, a seamless whole with all else, a holiness that is true Wholiness."

Aug 16, 2019

Prayer & Wholeheartedness
a fierce tenderness
Saying For Today: "Prayer is like living on the edge of a razor, yet you find you can move about there, as long as you remain humorously serious. Yet, if you become frivolous, rather than humorous, you could be cut in two, mercilessly."

Aug 15, 2019

Simple... simple as a sigh
the Way of prayer
Saying For Today: "So, remember this simple maxim: Keep it simple, simple as a sigh."

Aug 14, 2019

Love blossoms endlessly
your paradise awaits
Saying For Today: "We are created for paradise. We long for paradise, then the journey shifts from seeking paradise to exploring paradise."

Aug 13, 2019

Thought & Thinking & Unspeakable
seeing a tree as just tree
Saying For Today: "By this, I mean relax and let the flow proceed, do not push away from yourself or pull to yourself. Life moves, you too with It, for you are Life."

Aug 12, 2019

The Search ~ entering on the knees
Saying For Today: "No one is welcomed into the most Holy except one who enters on his or her knees."

Aug 8, 2019

Aug 7, 2019

Intimacy ~ Self, God, Every Self
depth to depth

Aug 6, 2019

Loneliness & Solitude & Being-in-Love
Being-being-in-Love
Saying For Today: "We know most deeply being-in-Love by knowing deeply our solitude. We are each potentially awake to we ourselves Being-being-in-Love."

Aug 5, 2019

the inner Teacher
teacher and teaching as means of Grace
Saying For Today: "Words are a means that Truth seduces you to Itself, a way Truth elicits from you a response. Truth can seduce you through a myriad other means, as well."

Aug 4, 2019

The path ~ grace and graces
the ever-fresh life
Saying For Today: "A getter ends up being a gotten. Getting arising from a subtle to gross aggression, of acquisition. The path is a path that gives, you are a receiver."

Aug 3, 2019

Looking a little crazy
the wisdom of a foolishness
Saying For Today: "And that is how you can hold an inward posture in all things, in formal practice and mundane life, that is, a humble dignity, a sane pride that you are living with all beings, that you are not apart or alone, and you are engaging life with courage, not shame that you are a human being like other human beings."

Aug 2, 2019

Ground & ground
the Dance that includes all
Saying For Today: "Consistent peace arises only in recognition of and acceptance that you are."

Aug 1, 2019

Love's Integration ~ the Harmony we long for
Life beyond suffering and pleasure
Saying For Today: "Know this, for sure, the person never integrates, for the person cannot integrate. The sense of person is a locale for suffering, for disharmony. Only Love integrates, for Love is Harmony Itself."

Jul 22, 2019

Border Crossings ~ An Intimate Sharing
Living with Wonder and Gratitude
Saying For Today: "All became calm, when a voice spoke, "It's all going to be okay." I knew it would be, and it was."

Jul 21, 2019

Presence ~ seduced by the Flower
Saying For Today: "To speak of Presence as flower, the flower seduces one to come to it through the scent it gives. We are means for Grace to seduce others to Grace, not to us, even as we have been seduced by Grace to Grace."

Jul 20, 2019

Presence ~ the giver is the gift

Jul 19, 2019

Jul 14, 2019

A Meal & Mystery & Love
Saying For Today: "And, remember nothing sacred is ever really about what we think about it. When all is said, what remains is love, and that is so much more important than our ideas about religion or ritual, or even ideas against religion or ritual."

Jul 13, 2019

Enlightened Action, Again
acting without a why
Saying For Today: "When you act in pure spontaneity, in that moment there is no thought of what is the source of the action or the reason for it or that you are doing it to honor or obey anyone or anything."

Jul 12, 2019

Being Loved ~ Always now, Always now
Saying For Today: "I felt simply bathed in a love that is beyond words, it was as though love washed through me, cleaning me inside, and moved over me, cleaning me outside. I knew I had been captured, and I would never be but a captive to this Lover."
