This poem was read today in a live meeting and it was suggested (thank-you Ron!) that it might be the first of two… this poem illustrates a turning inward to knowingly abide as THAT. The second might be titled “Reintegration” and would speak of turning back outward to knowingly celebrate as THIS in the (apparent) world. Stay tuned!
Here we find a very short story that points to a common predicament created by thought. All thoughts and corresponding states arise in the mind. What we are allows for and observes all states yet when established in knowing our true nature, we remain utterly detached and unaffected by appearances.
There is no end to chasing objects in the world. An “inward” direction begins an investigation into this “person” we feel we are. It may be revealed that we are not a person who “has” consciousness but rather we are consciousness expressing through an apparent person in this transactional world.
I have nothing against teachings or books – (I love books) – but there comes a point where one must “go it alone” and venture into the unknown with no map, compass or supplies. Once heart/home is your default you’ll find nothing need be shunned, all is allowed! Enjoy.
