I cannot get out of this ocean
because the ocean is me

what drowns is an echo
of something that never swam..

instead

in the deep ocean of me,
there is only ocean-ness
flying

Truth in every pore; swimming in truth, now rising to the neck, now to the eyes. Oh to be swallowed up by it!

Thanks to God for making you perfect.

Your words are the words i come back to after being confused by lots of wonderful teachings that are just perfect but somehow get the mind working too well. Coming back to your words is like revisiting the oasis. Allowing everything to be and swimming in that reality is the perfect description of what it feels like when you are no longing seeking, but being swum in it. Why seek non-existent dry land when there is so much life swimming around here? The ocean is everything.

Many thanks.
