Wisdom

IMG_0271 BF CRPI kneel
at the edge of
the water and
pour dippers
over my head
and say
I am wise.

I wade in
up to my waist and
say I am wise.

Only in a deep
sustained dive
in full immersion
am I wise.

Yet, every submersion
imparts new knowing.

Breathe the deep breath
of unknowing and
go deep.
Over and over.

Wiser and wiser
from the waters
of the All.
All Knowing there. (CXCVII)

Radiant Heart

IMG_0260 BF CRPWe emerge
from seed
to womb
to life
to Spirit.

As in germination
we set a radicle
in the earth
drawing hydration.

This is knowing
of self
relative to
immediate surroundings.

Our embryonic shoot
first knows
a downward glance
of the host earth.

But our instinct
for light
turns the shoot
to life-giving light.

We turn
from self
to everything
to the All!

Sustaining substance
streams form our heart
Open to light
knowing Source.

Source shines
upon our leaves
receiving Light
in quantum transubstantiation.

The Yin
of self to
the Yang
of Light.

We live
in the wholeness
of a
Radiant Heart.

Present.
Living.
Knowing.
Being.  (CXCVI)

Pentecost

OMGR0617We’ve already had
our Pentecost.
On the seventh Sunday
the disciples
received the Spirit
the tongues of flame.

For the disciples
this was 50 days
after the second
day of Passover.
Shavout
the giving of the law.

But Pentecost
is the giving of
the law of
the Heart.

In Christian terms
in Baptism we receive
the Light of Christ.
In Confirmation
we become
Hearts aflame.

Pentecost
is our hypostasis
our becoming
what we already are.
Fully human
fully Divine.

Christmas celebrates Birth.
Easter celebrates Ascension.
Pentecost releases
a radiant
Heart.

Jesus taught us
how to live.
How to Be.
As Christ.

You and I
are already that.
Let us live that.
Person to Person
Christ to Christ.

Divine incarnate to
Divine incarnate.

Do we live as That?  (CXCIII)

The Absolute

IMG_9777 BF CRPGod.
Yahweh.
Allah.
Brahman.
Many names.
One Being.

Known in symbol.
Celebrated.
Feared.
In ritual.

The Absolute.
The Ground of Being.
None else
Presupposed.
Self sufficient.

Eternal.
Never not.

Not mystery.
In us.
In everything.
In all.
All in all.

The flow of breath.
The flow of drink.
The flow of energy.
Light that animates.

Higgs energy.
Manifesting my flesh.
Energy from the sky
Gives me life.
Gives me awareness.

Eyes that see.
Ears that hear.
Knowing
That knows
The Knower.

God.
Not mystery.
Not symbol.

You.
Me.
That.

Know yourself.
Know That.
Know the Absolute

You
We
are That! (CXCII)

River Meditation

IMG_0591 BF CRPSit quietly
along these banks.
See the constant flow
hear the quiet ripples
round the bend.
Centering here
centering now
see just the water
passing.
This moment
this water
this breath.
After some minutes
see the water
downstream.
Your past
passing away.
Imagine upstream
your present now
not yet here.
Yet here
is quiet
is peaceful.
Lift in your peace
see with your
third eye
high above.
See the water to come
the water passed.
Timeless vision
the whole river
Source to tributary.
Alpha to Omega.
Whole being
future to
now to
past.
Constant you.
Timeless Divine You.
In all of this
Peace.
Peace in the flow.
Just be. (CXCI)
