mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the wisest of them all?

sleeping softly

peek into your mirror so that you may see…..may witness…

may engage with time…

There is no place to search for the truth. Though it’s right beneath your feet, it can’t be found. Look at springtime……when the snow has melted, the scars of the landscape are no longer hidden…John Daido Loori

this mysterious countenance, this reverie of communion between body & mind….unearths our artistic charms disguised as longing…

One day passes & another day comes along, & everything happens the same. But basically, we are so afraid of the brilliance coming at us, & the sharp experience of our life, that we can’t even focus our eyes…..Chogyam Trungpa

can’t you feel that dazzling array of rapture & disillusionment…taunting & dissolving into openings….maybe we call it our spiritual path, our neuroses, our character flaws, our alternative flair….

when we wake up it’s all different….there’s a steadiness, a simple okness, a face we can ‘see’ in the mirror…maybe even laugh a little at our absurdities….enjoy simple pleasures…

revel in the connection between sensual & ethereal…

  1. The sensual. Being the gateway to the ethereal… We need to know sense perception in order to differentiate the realm of the mind from the material… Energy follows thought, we become what we think about, here or hereafter! Great meditation for today. Thanks…

    • Ahhh…you find the essence as always…yes…this is waking up…not so much magic…yet waking up feels that way…thanks g. f.s….

  2. A lot of nice things well stated. That quotation about the melting snow and the search for truth, And then the waking up. Thank you.
