To Love! in the Sky

Reflections from Solitude and Silence No. 9

Jun 4, 2018


This is the nineth of the series of reflections arising from a month in silence and solitude; the musings invite the reader to explore the Truth for himself or herself. May the writer's reflections be windows to look in, or out, onto the vista of our one Beloved, our deepest, truest Self. Peace! Brian

an apple tree
has no purpose for its existence
has no meaning to itself
nothing added to expression of its beinginess, goodness
one thread in the tapestry of life

an apple tree
is an apple tree, that's it, that's all
produces apples for
it's an apple tree

how utterly odd
the human being can spend
so much effort seeking


the or a purpose for his or her life
the meaning of life itself


just here
right now
nothing added that separates

feel the dance inside your bustling body
feel the glory of Earth's flowering flesh

boundless sky, welcoming spaciousness
morning cloud mass
humid streams of smoothly flowing droplets
cooling, caressing
like an aqueous lover

God without!
God within!

so we are
invited to fall in Love this moment
and we are

to breathe calmly
to be contentedly
to dance joyfully


no meaning
no purpose

and we could be silent
lifting our selves into the Sky
yelling happily

"to Love!"

The mantra, in Sanskrit, Har, Har Mukanday can be rendered God, Absolute Beingness, liberating aspect of Self. This is a mantra, a prayer, for powerful Grace to remove internal blockages to freedom of expression of the True Self of all.
