Haiku

Starting to do an online course on writing Haiku. What fun!

It’s the same old thing
I’m stuck, I’m stuck, I’m still here.
I can just let go.

Imagined eyes
Sending messages of fear
It is a dream.

Life is a river
Flowing right through our fingers
Over spills a cup

When I first began to love God…

When I first began to love God,
I thought I’d fallen into the ocean.
But I was only on the beach.
then I entered the water,
and was thrown back onshore.
And then washed again, into the waves…
God, why did I want this love?
And what is this back and forth?

Tender Words

Tender words we spoke
to one another
are sealed
in the secret vault of heaven.
One day like rain
They will fall to earth
and grow green
all over the world.

-Rumi

Judgement

Letting judgment drop. Practice accepting everything just as it is, without wishing for it to be different. The key to freedom.

The Transparency of Things – Rupert Spira

I have been aware of this book for quite some time but have not given it my full attention. For the past week, I have got one after another nudges to give it some serious study. So I intend to do just that. This post will be my reflections on it.

The Moor

It was like church to me.
I entered it on soft foot,
Breath held like a cap in the hand.
It was quiet.
What God was there made himself felt,
Not listened to, in clean colours
That brought a moistening of the eye,
In movement of the wind over grass.
There were no prayers said. But stillness
Of the heart’s passions—that was praise
Enough; and the mind’s cession
Of its kingdom. I walked on,
Simple and poor, while the air crumbled
And broke on me generously as bread.

R.S.Thomas

The User Illusion

So today, I’m starting to read this book. Got through the preface and chapter 1. It’s a challenge and I’m not sure I understand everything he’s saying but I am intrigued and will continue to plow through.

The User Illusion – Comments

I began this journey, seeking out some scientific explanations about consciousness after revisiting H’oponopono in Zero Limits where Hew Len suggests reading this book. A few weeks earlier, something was brought up in a class/retreat which was a quote from a Gary Weber.  And that led me to a youtube video where Weber shared how decisions are made somewhere in the brain several seconds before the person is aware of the decision. Then we claim that “we’ve” made a decision.
