i like how you're able to cut through my BS and expound on what I needed to know... Thank you! So it seems my I-thought is very tricky, telling me I am doing practice to annihilate my ego when in fact it is feeding my ego. (How spiritually materialistic I can be!) Ha ha! I especially found the "we b...

Inner Fire

Searching within for my heartbeat
Awaiting moments with each warm pulse
Feeling the light suffusing my veins
Breathing Love like the Sun
Like Vast Glaciers Blue Wings Rise Behind me
Feathers tickle my neck as I dance to the beat
Shining on all creation, even in the darkness
I am here now

Re: Thought Woman

It would be fun!

Lovely Poem

May I read it at the Mercury Cafe next Sunday?

I was thinking of reading some gnostic poetry... but couldn't write it just yet.

funny thing...

I made a "deal" with my friend concerning willpower. She hadn't been going to school, and I hadn't been meditating. So She would go to school if I meditated for 2 hours (8-10 am). This worked well for one day, she went to school, I sat for 2 hours. The next day, I sat for 1 hour and 56 minutes. I ju...

I was afraid you'd say that...

Why is speaking of discipline so much easier than practicing it? Why do I find myself trying to understand discipline, as if by understanding it I will know it? It seems I am lazy since I don't have discipline... Now the hard part of being lazy is I can think of all these other activities that prove...

Practice "enough"?

Well, I like to think of myself as Gnostic, and "on the path". Path of what? Presence in the Now, without deception. Compassion and Joy and Spiraling Laughter Light Supernovas... Once my teacher said I need to "immerse" myself in a practice. I assumed this meant sitting in meditation or some other f...

when one is satisfied, one is far from dharma

behind this statement is the awareness that whether in a gross (external) way or subtle (internal) way, we all are prone to miss the mark ("sin") in the egoistic condition and in these present bodies. Thus, sitting in judgment of others we sit in judgment of ourselves, and in this way we bind ourse...

judgement in relationships

"This relates to what Yeshua says in the Gospel: Even if you look at another woman other than your wife with lust, you commit adultry." I guess I'm not ready for marriage! Will I ever be, according to the above criteria? ;) I too have noticed judging outwardly equates to judging inwardly, and it ch...

Doubt?

beautiful advice on integrating spirituality and life...

I have one question: What if you find yourself doubting the meaning / symbolism you add to your life?

In other words, do you observe doubt and try to "do" something about it?

My favorite: #3 "we dance within the fire"

3. Mary said, “This world is a cemetery, it is filled with corpses. For this reason, the Lord set the world on fire so that the dead might awaken and spirits might be set free. And now the fire burns, and we tend it so that it might burn brightly, and we dance within the fire, for we are on fire wit...
