Baffling


Massive rains throughout the night
with a thunder coming in at times.

Now early morning
a gentle cool breeze touching my legs

The songs of birds
muted by humidity.

Sitting here typing
sipping coffee 
the body slowly waking up
the being alert.


While we sleep, the night with dreaming 
is passing by almost unnoticed.
When the luminous awake being that we are
is doing its dance of discovery and creativity,
only at times do we remember.


The part of us which has been put on earth
has its life narrowed down so much,
( closed in by the identifications
with body, character, personality, believes,
tendencies, likes and dislikes )
that only at times to we realize 
the magnificence of what we are
and the openendedness of our being.

Uniquely this one expression of All that Is,
and not in any way separated from anything else.


We are where we are because of everything 
which exists and happened before us.  

Meaning everything.

The interdependence of everything that exist is
baffling, mind blowing.

Just take only oxygen, which sustains all of life,
which is dependent on the fact that the universe, 
the earth had to come into being first. 
Where the development of growth of plants had to take place
for the production of oxygen to happen.

Anything which is happening right now,
any activity, or movement can be traced back similarly.

Cells had to come into being, develop, multiply,
and after a miraculous process produce
fish, reptile, mammals, human beings.

For me to make one movement
the whole human evolution had to occur.
My great grandparents had to meet each other 
and have children.

The whole universe came into being 
to enable me at this moment 
to wiggle my toe.

Meaning Everything


There is often an amusement 
about discussions on the net on e.g.
personal and the impersonal.
As there is only Oneness


And in this and as this everything plays out.


Meaning everything


Meaning everything we might call
personal or impersonal. 


After all they are just words.


Do we first have to demarcate a difference
between personal and impersonal,
and then say that This includes both?


Is that not obvious?


Since there is only One?


Nothing is ever excluded.
How could it be?


But then of course debates about
personal and impersonal, or come to that, 

about dual and nondual,
are also playing out in This and as This.

Awareness mirroring itself in a billion ways.


Life is what is happening 
when we are busy debating on the net. :-)

 ( Free transfiguration of a famous quote mostly attributed to John Lennon )

The Unmappable



How wonderful that Life is not static,
always changing.
Forever moving
into something else.

How wonderful that even from Nonduality
we can move on.

Why to remain stuck on one level?
No matter what it is called.
Is there not more to discover?

If we think we have figured it out and understood
we have mapped the unmappable 
yet again.

Never stop to wonder
the miracle of Life
