Out of the Way

Out of the Way
“Out of the Way” – written and read through Walter

allowing to be
not using force
aligned with arisings
reveals a course

    what once was unknown
    requires no prep
    the ground appearing
    along with each step

THIS movement within
THAT deepest repose
shows longing and fear
only ever supposed

    as phantoms created
    in the shadows of mind
    now each darkened corner
    illumined we find

a light which shines
the world of appearances
now clearly is seen

    as a transitional show
    using interface of mind
    assigning name and form 
    seeming objects defined

this may be the part
where questions arise
like “just what does it mean
the seeker must die?”

    in this lies a mystery
    how does one comes to feel
    and know before mind
    that no person is real

if THIS is remembered
more intensely one shines
forgetting such words
as my, me or mine

    our role now is clear
    in this manifest play
    we recognize what we are
    and get out of the way

  1. Thank you, Walter. Correspondingly, I read this morning from Nisargadatta: “Meditation will help you the find your bonds, loosen them, untie them and cast your moorings. When you are no longer attached to anything, you have done your share. The rest will be done for you.”

    1. And thank you James, the clarity of Nisargadatta is beautiful. Meditation certainly was helpful here to help gain some stability and reduce compulsiveness of mind.
