Look Up


"Disconnect from the need to be heard and defined.
Go out into the world. Leave distractions behind."

Everything. Nothing.

Everything passes, nothing remains.

Understand this, loosen your grip, and find serenity.

~ Lama Surya Das






Watching everything pass. Pass by. Pass by me. Pass me by. Pass on. Pass over.

Everything. Every. Thing.

Seeking the nothing that remains. The no thing. No thing.

Seeking in my watching to understand. Watching in my seeking to understand.

Loosen the grip. Loosen your grip. Loosening my grip.

Loosening allows understanding.

Understanding allows loosening.

Loosening, I am lighter.

Porous. Translucent. Floating.

Serenity is . . .  just . . . THERE, waiting beneath my feet. As I float.

Or . . . just . . . THERE, haloing above my head. As I float.

Or . . . just . . . HERE. In me. In the floating.

Everything is passing.

Right now.

Nothing is remaining.

Right now.

When


All Things
are subject to the laws of change
and not
to your wishes for them.
When you truly
understand
this,
you can be at peace
in
any surrounding.


~Ajahn Chan, Thai Forest Master

(1919-1992)

Words of Wisdom From My Teacher:

“See what is worth learning, and what is worth doing. Thus, you gain an understanding of what is vital, and what is not vital. You need to learn what is important and what is not important. You need to understand what will move you upwards and onwards, and what will hinder you from traveling the higher path.”

~ Goswami Kriyananda, A Thought For This Day, May 16
