What?


Paying rent
loving someone
Biting into the apple
hurting

Thinking, planning
strategizing
Worrying, hoping
seeking

Exercise
eat
Live
sit

Meditation, satsang
yoga, prayer
Mantras and chants
gurus

Signing the check
going bankrupt
Seeing spirits
and disappearing in
orgasm

What
holds it all,
welcomes it all,
sees it all,
IS it all?

What
spacious presence
is humming,
not moving at all,
yet being movement
or stillness?

What
watches the questions,
whose answers
are one?

What
is this complete freedom,
softness
spaciousness
opening
peace?

What
is beyond a happening
beyond a doing
beyond Being
beyond words
beyond thought
beyond concepts
beyond birth
death
and yet,
includes them all?

This "What"
is before the beginning
of no end

This "What"
is the origin
of nothing

This "What"
is the answer
to the absence
of questions

This "What"
is not a
thing,
yet there is
nothing else here

Everything collapses into THIS
springs from THIS
is THIS

Ever fresh,
this herenow
is the first and only
arising

Nothing Can Hurt You


innocent beliefs
have never hurt you

they served their purpose
and were summarily dropped
exactly now

they may be visiting again

no worries

there may be bruising
but no scars

there may be raindrops
but no storm damage

allow

allow

let the waters flow
let the knots get tighter

if they must

this is not a problem
this is not a danger
whatsoever

there is nothing more powerful
more all encompassing
all seeing
all knowing
more compassionate or
exploding in love

than you

ever present
always here
always now
always

all ways

nothing but you

nothing but you

Being Me


When there is no searching for happiness,
When there is no preference for pleasure
or pain

When whatever shows up is
accepted
seen
unjudged as good or not good

When desire for something else
is seen as utterly impossible

What is left?
What is here?
What is this?

Perhaps
Pure, spacious silence

Alive, and nothing
Awake and shining
Knowing
Seeing
Being

There is nothing "more"
to be wanted
by no one

For there is no wanting
without the idea of "me"

Me=Desire=Search for "more/better"

But there is no more or better
There is only this infinite
amazing presence,
Being what is,
Complete satisfaction

So much more intimate,
satisfying
than what a "me" seems to dream

The precious "me" is not
the enemy
But it cannot know anything
or find anything
It is simply Being, being a "me"

Unless it isn't

Perhaps for the pleasure of
meeting Itself anew

Or maybe Being just has a sense of humor :-))
