Our own life is the instrument with which we experiment with truth."

"What can 'turn off'  the attitude of
suffering? What can 'destroy' the
assumption of difference?"

You can't turn off or destroy something that doesn't exist.. just see that
it isn't there...

I used to call the Anteroom 'The Eternity Ward' To wait we still have to be
there expecting some big change to come in the future...Can you wait without
waiting? Wey wu wait?

There was a wonderful episode on Star Trek
Voyager where Captain Janeway had to
become enlightened to save Seven of Nine.
There was what she thought was the waiting
room and she became impatient and went through
all these horrible ordeals only to discover that
the waiting room was enlightenment. Does anyone
else remember that episode? It was one of my
favorites.

  I have been in the Enlightenment Waiting Room for some time now.  Although they give you a number and tell you to sit and wait your turn, I have discovered that the whole thing is a hoax.  I would leave, but I love a good hoax as much as the next person.  And I am next in line.

JP   NDS

My number came up once.

I was once at the front of the line.

To my surprise, I saw that the clerk
on the other side was me.

He let me take a look around,
but no one else was there.

I asked if there were any good
Sushi restaurants around.

He rolled his eyes and said nothing.

Apparently, there aren't.

He then looked at my numbered tag
and with a mischievious smile
and a wink, muttered something
about the small legalities outlined in
the fine microprinting on my tag.

I told him I don't read Norwegian.

He told me to go get another number and
get back in line with the others.

I swore at him. I told him it's
crazy there. He shrugged.

The nerve! He then asked if I could please sneak
him some Ama-Ebi (sweet shrimp), Unakyu (broiled eel
and cucumber)and a bottle of Sake.

Boogie Street (Leonard Cohen)
 
O Crown of Light, O Darkened One,
I never thought we'd meet.

You kiss my lips, and then it's done:
I'm back on Boogie Street.

A sip of wine, a cigarette,
And then it's time to go
I tidied up the kitchenette;
I tuned the old banjo.
I'm wanted at the traffic-jam.
They're saving me a seat.
I'm what I am, and what I am,
Is back on Boogie Street.

And O my Love, I still recall
The pleasures that we knew;
The rivers and the waterfall,
Wherein I bathed with you.
Bewildered by your beauty there,
I'd kneel to dry your feet.
By such instructions you prepare
A man for Boogie Street.

O Crown of Light, O Darkened One.

So come, my friends, be not afraid.
We are so lightly here.
It is in Love that we are made;
In Love we disappear.

Though all the maps of blood and flesh
Are posted on the door,
There's no one who has told us yet
What Boogie Street is for.

O Crown of Light, O Darkened One,
I never thought we'd meet.
You kiss my lips, and then it's done:
I'm back on Boogie Street.

A sip of wine, a cigarette,
And then it's time to go.

 MJ Gilbert  Along the Way

 

        Do your work in the world, but inwardly
        keep quiet.  Then all will come to you.  Do
        not rely on your work for realization.  It may
        profit others, but not you.  Your hope lies
        in keeping silent in your mind and quiet in
        your heart.  Realized people are very quiet.

                          - Nisargadatta Maharaj

Gill Eardley  Allspirit  

Do not try to become anything.
Do not make yourself into anything.
Do not be a meditator.
Do not become enlightened.
When you sit, let it be.
What you walk, let it be.
Grasp at nothing.
Resist nothing.

If you haven't wept deeply, you haven't begun to meditate.

~Ajhan Chah

Gill Eardley  Allspirit  

"Once, a few weeks after I came to the woods, for an hour I
doubted whether the near neighborhood of man was not essential
to a serene and healthy life. To be alone was somewhat unpleasant.
But in the midst of a gentle rain, while these thoughts prevailed, I
was suddenly sensible of such sweet and beneficent society in
Nature, in the very pattering of the drops, and in every sight and
sound around my house, an infinite and unaccountable friendliness
all at once, like an atmosphere, sustaining me, as made the fancied advantages of human neighborhood insignificant, and I have never thought of them since. Every little pine-needle expanded and swelled
with sympathy and befriended me. I was so distinctly made aware
of the presence of something kindred to me, that I thought no place
could ever be strange to me again."

'Walden' Henry David Thoreau
