Love, Beauty, & Goodness

Love, Beauty, & Goodness

If during the time we feel the sun penetrating our skin we can realize that the sun, all those millions of miles away, is being felt, in this moment, as it lands on the skin, now. This can act as a portal and we seem to enter into a beyond space and time kind of feel. It’s a kind of clarity in the mind that knows unity with the sun, as well as, with the now, which has always and will always be here. When the mind is blown by such a thought, the heart opens and We can feel spontaneous arisings of contentment, love, peace. But from where do these arisings originate?

It’s the sun, remember? That’s where we started. This all started with a photo of me standing in the sun’s rays. From the sun, arising into the awareness that originated on my skin and into the mind, as my mind. Inspiring me to think about the sun penetrating my skin, it’s inside of me, and I am inside of it. Is it me, or am I it? Yes, both, and not exactly. It’s sameness stands in and for the truth. It’s beauty is expressed in the uniqueness. It is whole onto itself, as well as, an expression of the one wholeness. It’s the ground of being, and it is the sea of potentiality, standing as Goodness for all.

Check points help to keep honest people, honest.

What's the right medicine and how much?  It's all becoming a little undone.  It's for the good and the bad.  Some love it, some hate it.  They hate it.  Isn't it funny how the thieves fear, "being taken from?"  Pick your Poison, I mean medicine, I mean poison.

Then again who hasn't been a thief?  Who hasn't manipulated along the way?  Haven't you learned along the way?  When you are fortunate enough to have the eyes that see the opportunity you learn this lesson earlier or you spend at least a part of a significant amount of time of your life processing this very human experience.  And since it's all significant I say, Carpe Diem...

Carpe Diem...  I loved that movie, Dead Poet's Society.  And then, Robin Williams commits suicide.  Pause...  Naima reminds us from time to time, she reminds us that, "Spiritual life is hard in the beginning and easier at the end.  Worldly life is easier in the beginning, harder at the end." 

Pick your poison and your medicine.  The only way to know is to find out.  Trudge lightly.  Go fearlessly and one pointed.  Don't fool yourself.  Stirha Sukha Asanam.  Witness your tendencies, as well as, those of your friendly and unfriendly counterparts.  Don't let your fascia get all twisted up in a bunch.

If you are a certain type of person, you will be tempted to return to your poison or so-called medicine.  This is why check points are important.  Daily meditation, Weekly yoga, bi-annual Cleansing.  Check points help to keep honest people, honest.
