Pray to say - and get out of the way

Let this mind be still of self judgement.
Let this heart be open to this moment.
May all things rest in my awareness,
with no story of division.

I come to ask, as I am moved,
and moving, meet resistance;
a mind in me that calls on guilt,
in darkness of exclusion.

Let me hear true!
I want to hear true,
for the being of life,
and the seeing of life,
as one with true.

I have thought my way into a maze and think I must think my way out.
Reveal to my mind the simple light of truth!
I felt my feelings condemn me in a dark and lonely hell.
Reveal to me my Self - where peace extends!

I wanted you dear heart, to be with, and to be with me,
in form that touched me in desire to be so known and oh so loved!
And made of you an idol of loss, of limitation, fear and guilt.
for I believed the the lonely thoughts - that say I am as they,
and longed for love as if my self was unlike love.

So help me,
and let me know Thy Help,
help the love, you Be me,
know itself directly.

Paths within a world unlove,
cannot be found.
They are not there!
And seeming lost, abandoned, sense,
that I, in mind, does err,
Attending thought in false pretence,
as if a worthy prayer.
I made myself experience,
of world that isn't there.

A prison painted out.
Imaginary walls,
exclude the life,
lock in, the demon thought,
that turns the spit,
the guilt fire pit.
That paints the sham,
to hide from shame,
but knows full well,
impotent spell.
For love lost, cost,
all that lives,
and mere things never,
such life give.

Unless from the cell, and spell undone,
is shifted to the Living One.
In dream forsaken -  let me then forsake,
abiding sleep - I wouldst awake!
for love’s true need,
above my sake.

Holy Spirit in the heart,
listening for peace.

Listening for peace in my heart.
Resting in desire for peace.
Let peace be in my heart!
Let peace be in thy heart!
May peace be.
And be in peace,

A mind unwhole in agitation,
was here as if my own.
Let peace restore me from,
i will
to let myself be still ...

brian in a moment


Awakening to the real world

I am not inclined to be critical of any living being - but when there is an assertion that purports to be true and yet is not true, I feel the authority of life - the innate right - to speak as I am moved to speak.

If I were reacting against error - I would make it real to myself. That is not my desire.

When anything is humanly held to be truth that is not true, it has to be asserted, maintained and defended - because its real power is given it by its makers, who identify, and are justified to themselves thereby.

The human world experience is an alloy of both wheat and tares because it is the effect of confusion of both the true and the false.

The primary error is the belief that it is up to 'us' - or me or you - to determine truth. For such is the constitution of an 'orphaned' or 'divorced' mind.

All attempts to heal, or bring harmony and accord, have - or use - an element of truth, but until truth awakens to its own there is the underlying liability of a false self serving will. Which always brings discord and suffering even if it seems to temporarily please a partial perspective.

Recognizing this liability, has brought into play what Raj calls 'negative cooperations'; the designed and agreed arrangement of checks and balances to constrain the excesses of the exertion of power. These may also express and appeal to a higher level of responsibility, toward a greater sense of shared life than a blind self interest.

However, a blind self interest, sees and uses all things to gain personal advantage - without real or heartfelt regard for truth and makes a moral superiority of validity for itself out of truths that would - if brought into realization - correct the mind of its blindness and restore to truth in wholeness.

The world-in-limitation works like a veil to distorts miracle impulses, (communication), such that love seems to be a weak power struggling amidst opposition to act or have effect. This is because power - in terms of belief, attention and identification - is given to fear.

Your mind given to fear wills yet to ‘be free’ to limit love, that a part from it you can experience for yourself.

This can be seen as a freedom expressed - but not extended - for the freedom to deny love in favour of a partiality is to limit the limitless. Within the framework of such experience, limitation is also the tool by which the experience is managed.

Yet all of the experience of limitation is founded on - and in - the desire that a part from Truth you can experience for yourself.

The mind in chaos tends to contract, withdraw and regain its sense of stability from association with that which gives it validity as good - or at least works against the rising fear to stem the flood.

But the flood of chaos is but a misperception of life, to a mind locked into control, that is dicovering it has no control.

When the world is changed it is because the dream of how it was thought to be is simply not supported. This is the great opportunity to flip from wanting truths - for yourselves to weave another dream - into letting truth move your desire.

But be comforted - that even in error, is your true awareness present and abiding. Awaiting your welcome.

This is true for all. All are welcome in the awareness of God.

May we use the structures of limitation to dissolve the fears that demand limitation.
May we embrace the loves of the world in a deeper trust as being the love - beyond persons, beyond flags or loyalties to anything external to the Movement of Being Itself - for Which and in Whom let no substitute, image, symbol or concept, interpose itself.

Our every thought is a vote - not in a real contest - but in the densifying or enlightening of experience. As long as we vote with the thoughts that make the world we will have it. Yet in any thought that is truly shared - we are restored instantly to awareness.

There is a political aspect to the Kingdom of Heaven - in exactly the wise that Jesus and many others demonstrate - but it is free of the politics of fear, of coercion, of deceit and guile.

"What would love have me do? What is the Father's Will? What is the true desire in the silence and trust of the heart?"

Here is no template employed, nor database of holy answers and solutions applied in presumption of righteousness.

What does this trust embodied,look like? Perhaps it looks like working with the enemy, or betraying the principles that uphold all that is conceived lawful and just, or as a masking deception with supernatural power. Because to the mind in the grip of fear, love cannot be real - otherwise the love of self-in-struggle can no longer be supported.

For to love, there can not be an enemy - but that it becomes the way to listen more deeply - and in willingness extended - be healed of a shadow power.

Only the heart communicates, and rejoices in communion.

The mind judges and accords 'communication' to that which validates what it already asserts.

Seek therefore the messengers of love that are open secret. Release the mind in judgement by not listening there.

If there are particular issues at the level of nations or social or political matters, then let us address them each for what they reveal - and not amidst a presumption of identity that demands or insinuates blind allegiance.

I do feel the wave that realizes usurpation has occurred and is yet active. But I do not address the effects in the world - for to keep it in the world is to keep the addiction to usurpation.

There are always those in every walk of life and function who are open to communication. But not to manipulation or coercion.

If we need peace as the condition in which love is known - then we need to look in terms of willingness to listen and show listening is true by the quality of response. But until a fundamental trust is uncovered - we listen not - but interpret. Love is an intimacy in which judgement cannot intrude - and in which apparent past intrusions have clearly had no effect.

Our own acceptance of atonement - of perfect love - is the gift through which the world is undone of  a density of guilt.

Therefore observe the mind that limits or withdraws or contracts - rather than let it act through you.

Miracles are the communication of love within the dream, that speak for you awake.

In Peace



Know Thyself

What is the function of Mind?

And therefore of Life?

"Know Thyself".

Extension or projection is the Law of Mind.

This never stops nor can be changed.

To know yourself truly is to be the extension of Mind - which then 'gives' itself to All - through you.

To know yourself partially but falsely is to 'give' the mind of an illusory self and meet it in everything and everyone. As a 'separated whole'.

The game of 'choose between' is the play of the mind in creating a sense of private experience - that in turn creates a sense of a self that seems to exist and act independently. As if Creation - the Extension of Mind - is a realm of things - there for a "you" to pick and choose between - so as to triumph over it.

While this game is being acted out and suffered as real - it brings polarized experience of good - and bad, of loving - and hating, of me - and you, of us - and them.

The Remembrance and Rewakenening of truth is unreasonable Good - because it is Good beyond question and without opposite or comparison. It is acceptance and appreciation in trust of all that is - as it is - with no imposition of interpretation as to what it is.

Far from being nothing - this willingness or receptivity - allows all that Life is - to function as a unified Wholeness - in your conscious experience.

What then of the problematic nature of a polarized existence and the dilemma of the self that seems to suffer it?

It becomes a true gift - by your willingness to listen and accept truth. Not truths that can be mouthed. But an honesty of heart in which the mind is quieted and true direction regained - aligned as Expression of One Will.

As to transcending the laws of physics  - I would say that the ego projects the mind of lawlessness - and that creates an overlay experience of forces in opposition, density of guilt , exploitation of power, subjection to an alien will and a mechanism of death.

One can think of this as a net in which the more one struggles the more entangled one becomes. And with every usurpation of power in self-seeking, comes the subjection to the rules you set by its abuse.

Awakening is the undoing of guilt, of error, of a fanciful self-regard that may have begun as a masqerade but became a death mask - and a trap. A meaninglessness.

"Seek first the True Kingdom of the Heart  - and all things will be added you".

This is simply the reversal of the ego's dictum:

"Seek to add all things to yourself and lose the True Kingdom of the Heart".

The mind that identifies itself in form will interpret experience as forms - but in awakening, we are weaned from a form based perception.

It is not 'things' that are added to us in the Kingdom - but that the Kingdom is the Expression of the indivisible nature of the attributes of God.

Right where you thought yourself to be - BUT - only as you extend what you receive in truth.

If we limit our giving - we give limitation.

What is giving?

It is the acknowledgement of value.

The un-withholding of the mind from its Source and Nature.

The work is your gift to yourself of the surety that you freely choose to value freedom - by willingness to overcome or put aside all desire to value the valueless. But until this becomes clear - is it not enough to live from a willingness to follow the path with a heart?

If we feel we have to do things - know you are free to do them from the heart and for the heart. Do them for your own - guided - reasons - even if it also looks like 'you have to go to work to share the supply of needs met'.

Things are fixed by opposition - or set free by acceptance.

Trust and accept the life that is given - not as your interpretation gives - but as a reconnect through which the next step reveals itself.

Just to share life is to have 'stepped out' of the laws that apply to embodied minds in space and time.

Without this 'step' the wheels are not even touching the road.

To pause - is to suspend judgement. To listen in trust is to allow Creation to be as it is - and be known truly.

Give - only - as you would - in truth - receive.
