A Yes to everything.
Resistance to the wind.
The helpless and
hopeless surrender to what is.
As we are thrown around
by gales and storms
and caressed by the pleasing breeze.
The passion for the Divine
is overtaking us in our own house.
It will empty us of all
of what we think we are.
And take ownership.
Like the landlord who claims
his rightful place.
He does not shy away from the things
we rather hide and bury under the floor boards.
While we attempt to block our ears
for the skeletons in the cupboard
who are rattling their bones
and for their yearning calls
to be heard and included,
He invites them all into his gaze.
And by doing so plucks away
the hidden dresses and costumes
we had forgotten
are still wearing our names.
He does not leave until all is His.

A process of integration after the initial awakening
A life time of misinterpretation,
falsely believing to be an independent identity,
has stored itself in the body.
Along with the trauma's, the pain and the injustice
closely linked with this initial error.
These layers are opening up,
slowly or suddenly,
when the pressure of the main contraction
of the individual identity,
have fallen away.
Opening into this new open space,
where finally they can be felt just as they are,
emotions, e motions, energy in motion,
and move on,
releasing their charge.
The body becoming more open and alive.
Another consequence of this natural functioning,
is that the organism becomes more sensitive.
Perceiving without filters, without barriers,
And life, as we can see all around,
is a dance of variation
of minute details,
of highs and lows,
of ecstasy and despair,
of breathtaking beauty,
All is keenly felt
in this One open space
where perception is ongoing at all times.
And where nothing is more felt as me than anything else.
Because everything is felt as me.
All the flavours and perfumes of existence.
Are all simply appearing.
If the penny has dropped,
if the shutters of perception remain open,
a lot of ease and contentment are a consequence.
Hopes, fears, dis-ease are synonymous with the
individual contraction, so if the focus and obsession
have fallen away something artificial is gone and
the natural functioning of the organism
Operating spontaneous without a someone directing
or wanting things different,
Everything is simply observed, seen, known for what it is.
All of Life is seen without filters.
There is the habit
to make the things which happen to us
Which of course is natural and true
because the me is
the only constant in our lives.
Everything is always happening
to this me,
with this me,
is observed by a me.
This is the case with everyone,
awakened, or not.
An Avatar, or street bum makes no difference
This never changes,
as long as there is a body,
as long as there are senses
this is the case.
It is always happening to or through this me.
With capital or not.
The difference is really
knowing who or what we are
underneath and beyond our conditioning
Who do we believe we are?
What have we taken in,
all those years?
In all of us,
a conceptual reality has over layed the direct perception.
We believe ourselves to be a someone separated from
the rest of existence
This we have conveniently
put outside of our skin.. ( so funny )
And created an inside and an outside.
If through a process of decondioning, inquiry and insights
the filters which are obscuring our perception
are disintegrating, we find out through experience
that life without filters is the natural state.
Everything is directly perceived.
That is the difference.
