Freedom to Freely BE

Freedom to Freely BE

I don’t require you to be anyone
to turn up
switch on
to be someone

Here in this space
I have no use for concepts and opinions
assertions and knowledge
here in this space we can just BE

Be as we are
naked and vulnerable
strong and fiery
broken and lost
angry or sad
joy-filled and blissful

or nothing at all

Here in this space we can explore the depth of humanity
traverse the fields of experiencing
sit in this divine Isness of life

but most of all be free
free to be
free to be without attributes
free to be whatever and whoever we are
free to sink into this moment
and again
and again

Just for a Moment

Just for a Moment

Keep letting go
that dogged determination of seeking
whether it be experiences and pleasure-seeking
better and more ‘stuff’
vaster and deeper knowledge
more experienced and valued skills
let it all go
just for a moment
and experience this moment.
Experience what it is to live life as awareness
unadorned with the commentary of the mind
theres nothing to get rid of, no bad thought
all must be held in the tender embrace of acceptance
for the real blossoming of life lived in truth and freedom
to be recognised as your birthright all along.

I Am

I Am

I don’t have any designs to be a teacher,
or even a student,
to be anything or anyone.
I simply am.

Living this life in the present moment of pure grace and spontaneity,
meeting each and every moment with the fullness of my heart
and the truth of this moment as I know it.

Never is there anything to be rejected or avoided,
never is there anything to be clung to and grasped;
all is perfectly playing out on this stage of experiencing.

For who am I that can possibly DO any of this,
who could claim any ownership of this moment?

What this isn’t is some spiritual pose,
some ‘way’ of being.

This is just a description of what naturally happens
when the dropping of all pretences,
the dropping of any held view,
the total openness of Sahaja,
the natural state,
when What-Is is.

Embracing Life

Embracing Life

Look at the world as if you know nothing,
don’t draw any conclusions
about what you experience,
or who you are.
Innocently move through life
experiencing what is
without the burdens of ideas,
judgements and conclusions.
Take each moment a fresh,
knowing that this moment will never be again.
Lovingly embrace each experience of life,
how lucky we are to have the play of life
grace us with its beauty and light.
Embrace all, reject nothing –
see that you are the master of none but the father/mother of all.

Stand in Truth

Stand in Truth

I stand in truth.

Can I accept that I may be judged,
I may be questioned,
I may be ridiculed?

Can I accept that,
can I be brave?

Can I stand in my own truth,
without qualification and explanation?

Can I stand sure,
knowing that it’s the right thing,
it’s the only thing?

Can I stand in truth,
unashamedly without reason,
and with no excuse?

Can I stand up for mySelf,
stand tall for the realisation of my very being?

Can I stand up for the truth of my own reality
that I know so well,
so intimately?

Can I live my life without the influence of shoulds and should nots?

Can I say to hell with it all and be as I am?

Can I stand in all my glory,
warts and all,
honest and vulnerable?

Can I accept all of it,
every aspect of me,
every aspect of life,
can I embrace it into my heart without exception?

So I stand in my truth
and in turn encourage others to stand in theirs.

For it’s the most loving thing I can do for myself and others.

Drop all the games,
all the masks,
all the pretences,
all the false concepts and notions,
drop it all.

Stand naked and open,
don’t hide your light.

Let reality, truth and honesty be the guiding movement of life.

Let the truth of your being shine through.

This Suffering Will Pass

This Suffering Will Pass

I feel your pain, your suffering.
If I could, I’d tell you that this will pass,
just as the clouds pass in the sky,
just as the ripples of the dropped stone disappear,
just as the passing wind that rustles the tree leaves,
just as the forgotten pain of yesterdays cut finger,
just as the heartbreak of first loves breakup,
just as the treasured childhood wellington’s long outgrown,
just as the wishes of birthday candles past.
Don’t hold on, for this too shall pass.



No questions
No answers
No effort
No doing
No practice
No deciding
No letting go
No coming
No going
No descriptions
No disconnection
No suffering
No story
No universe
No god
No you
No me

Awareness is aware

Just Stop

Just Stop

All these thoughts whirling around in your head
The whys and hows and what ifs
The past regrets and plans of the future
The shoulds and the should nots
Just stop

Stop holding on to them
Stop giving energy to them
Stop indulging them
Stop pushing them away
Stop trying to fix them
Just stop

There’s nothing to be figured out
No puzzle piece that needs to be found
No magical understanding which will make all of this make sense
Let go of all these thoughts
Keep letting go all day long

Abide in that which is aware of all these thoughts coming and going
Stay there
Stop going to the thoughts as if they’ll be the answer
Stay where you are
Could it be so simple?

Before Everything, You Are

Before Everything, You Are

I AM before all concepts,
all thoughts,
all emotions,
all senses,
before all that the body and mind experiences,
before all of this,
and yet all of this is contain in and as me.

I AM indefinable, words fail.
I go looking and the one that is looking
disappears into the where looking is happening from.

I AM immeasurable, ineffable silence.
This silence is not silent,
it’s not empty,
it’s not a lack of sound,
it’s an indescribable silence,
beyond words.

I AM that.
You ARE that.
