“Dig Deeper”

statue of man holding a cross

You can study the key tenets of Hinduism

You can memorize the essential Sutras of Buddhism

And you can philosophize about Taoist practices

But can you grasp the incomprehensible reality of Brahman?

Can you discover the essence of your own Buddha Nature?

And can you learn how to harmonize your life with Tao?

The intellect only takes you so far….

Dig Deeper,

Like a ground hog burrowing into the Earth

To see who you really are

And what lies beneath this.

Mindful Musings: Jan 1

“Interwoven”

By: Forrest Rivers

The indescribable unity

Intricate beads of awareness

The bliss of an intertwined Cosmos

Brimming with the wisdom

Of all the sages

Throughout eternity

Stopping at nothing

To give us the gift

Of blessings on the path

To wholeness and peace….

Like the Sun’s rays

Nourishing souls

An offering

It’s selfless essence

And guiding light

Opens hearts

To the pinnacle of truth

On this epic journey

Bridging worlds

Between the form and formless….

Beyond the mind

Beyond the thoughts

Of I AM

Stands Lord Ganesha

Removal of all obstacles

Shepherding us to that place

Where Brahman reigns supreme

Awaiting our coming

To this moment

When we remember

Who we were before we were born

In these bodies

To dance and rejoice

With the Beloved once again….

In this miracle of consciousness

Heaven and earth converge

Sharing in the mysteries

Of an unfolding knowledge

A transcendent wisdom

And, an infinite stillness

The One is the many

You see,

And this drama

you believe

Is nothing more

Then the Imperishable

Discovering IT’s shining Self through you!
