like mist on waters

does the mind have a root to it?
or is it just something that comes and then goes
like mist on the waters
without any moorings attached?
the waters stay like freedom unchanging
free of any of the reflections passing thru it
yet the mind how does it come and go so
as if it has nothing at all that is substantial?
can you find out love?
now is the time to look at it with clarity
it will come like a reflective energy
speaking in words or imagery
it will come like a hand that slaps hard
or a gentle soft voice that whispers
it will come like something of a daydream
it will come too with feelings of this is my
relationship to this
and this is my place here, not there
it will find you too in your dreams with colors
and adventures of a drama flow
it will come with you sitting, standing, walking
or whatever you are doing
so will you look at it once a little differently
with a discerning eye?
with a question too that is, what is this mind?
what is it about?
does it have a true constant presence?
does it have true constant way of making itself known?
does it have life outside of itself?
what is this mind?

like a river

try oh blessed one
to be open minded in your heart
for openness is the way to hear something that
is free of the ways of ordinary men
in your mind if you will open to the way of
higher consciousness
then you will be taken on a journey to a land
of timelessness

you will be moved there
as a wave is pushed by the winds
it moves not fighting it ever
for it cannot fight it
because at it's very core
lives the same nature
so how can it resist this force
that pushes it forward

when it moves one, this love of god
this thing that is like honey from the
that is in hoping, wanting to be free
with all their being
then one enters another way of being

the stream of consciousness
is loosened up
and flows like a river that moves and brings
up much debris to be flushed out
and taken into the heart to be destroyed
in the fires there

debris that has been collected from experiences
of life times
hard things, good things, tender things,
fearful things
deaths, many lives lived, all that has come
all that has gone
here God's grace works on the soul that is open
to this movement of grace
and brings mind to stop it's way of always manifesting
worldly visions that are dualistic in nature
rising, falling always

mind then is purified in time with this light
rinsing out lifetimes of collective things

God in pure intelligence does give goodness to the
one that stays centered thru it
not easy dear ones that are listening
very hard to bear
very hard to live thru
and yet one is taken forward and one goes forward

and one makes it thru
this maze of collections
the light of God sees it's way thru it
not the physical eyes ever
one then is taken into greater depths of being
that does not come from personal efforts
but grace only

one is taken into greater depths of being
as the mud is cleared more and more away
then one is well within a blessed journey
that will in it's time
bring freedom to it's heart

i wondered

listen soul
i have waited for you so very long
on the mountain high above the play of the world
i waited for you to come at dawn
when the colors were vibrant
the air fresh filled with morning on it's wings
i waited here
wondering how you were in your world
and if you would be the next one to walk a path of light
though the mountain is hard to climb
the wind harsh, with it's lamenting sound in your ears
and hard are the steps in the rocks for your footing to come to
i wondered if you would journey upward to find me
here in the moonlight in the still of night
or the afternoon when the sun was at it's zenith
or anytime night or day
sitting waiting for you
i wondered if you would climb and find me

do you know this way?

please one that is the be free in time
come to this heart center
it will shine of promises that are rich with
spiritual growth
promises that come from the life of all life
these promises are secretive as they are written
in tune with saints, masters, those that are
silent inside with hearing something other than
the voice of personal world views
secrets that are hidden deep in soul heart
like seeds that when watered bloom into pure speech
pure behavior
that is moved by grace only

do you know this way dear soul?
it moves in harmony with love and light
it gives voice to the song of Christ consciousness
for others to hear it
and  upon hearing it, these ones
that are sincere in heart say to themselves, there is another
way besides my own ego voice
upon hearing it, say to themselves,
what is this all about?
i only know this familiar world i have lived
in so very long

in my heart i will go to seek it, this way so beautiful to hear
that all is o ne
so i will listen more and more to t his joyous song i hear from lips
of those that have their minds in this light filled way
i will listen to it more and more

when i listen i will not let my mind have it's way of judging
because i do not understand it
i will just hear it and let it sink in to my soul
because i want to be out of this box i have put myself in

from here i will go on to the blessed place of emptiness
empty of avarice, sin, delusion, pride, pain, ego based ways
empty of limited thinking
empty of limited philosophies about the world
empty of me and you and they
empty of all that can be imagined here there and all over
empty of all of the workings of me

when this mind is fully emptied out of these things that ring of
of playing about in so many ways in imaginings, grasping
happenings, future, past, all of it
then i find something other that is beautiful and not of my making
this is the best of all
that there lives something else beyond my making things this way and
that way
beyond anything that is any way at all
but lives as o ne perfect being
this i come to
now i will move onward in my heart journey and find this life that lives
in the core of all things
now i will move onward in my heart journey
