2013-03-12 (12)Master, I seek that light which shines in the heart, invisible to the eye, blazing like a thousand suns.

I want that illumination that shines behind all things.

That sun behind the sun.

Grant me the fortitude, the discipline, the renunciation, the devotion to be worthy of this quest.

Grant me freedom from desire and clinging, from ignorance and want, that I may enter into that most blessed state, but not for myself.

May I do it for the world. May we all do it for the world.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

May I have the fortitude to overcome the treacherous mind.

May the mind be stilled forever.

May I attain to the peace of perfect enlightenment.

May all beings attain to this peace this very day.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

English: A brilliant photo of light reflecting...

May all miseries and shortcomings leave us forever.

Grant to us, Lord, the freedom to know that we are free, the wisdom to know that we are immortal spirits, the fortitude to know that we are strong, and the insight to know that enlightenment is our real state of being.

In all these things, grant that we may love you as we deeply desire to love you, and that we see you in all, love you in all, worship you in all beings.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

KissI’m tired of this playing hide-and-seek by moonlight. I’m too old for games. Can’t you see that this is serious? I don’t want to chase after you, listening to you giggle. I want you to sit still and be close to me, hold my hand and talk to me. Why is that too much to ask?

You let Francis catch you. I’m not even sure if he chased you at all. Seems to me he just turned a corner one day and there you were.

Gadai got hold of you when he was just a boy. And don’t tell me how hard it was for him all those years, how he cried for you for so many days. We both know he had his reasons for all of that.

And what about Siddartha? He didn’t even look for you, went the opposite direction, but when he plopped down under that tree, you were waiting for him. How is that fair?

I can go on and on, you know.

Nimai just went around causing trouble. Then along you came and said, “Here. Sing this.” Next thing you know, he’s a saint.

Now Paul, I grant that you weren’t so friendly about it. But you gave yourself to him nonetheless, and how did he earn it? I ask you!

See, there are plenty of┬áprecedents. You did it for them, now I think it’s my turn. Sit down here, and do for me what you did for them. Give yourself to me. Let me melt into you. That’s what I call freedom.

And while you’re at it, go ahead and give it to everyone else. They’re really decent people. I think they deserve it.

I love you. Even if you are a tease.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

FireMay God, my all, my one true love, though your flame burns always within me, I am blind to its light and chilled by the frigid world.

Set ablaze the fire of devotion in my heart and the fire of knowledge in my head, that I may endure the world and see through the darkness of ignorance.

May my love for you light a pyre beneath the ego, and reduce to ash the selfish clinging that keeps hidden from me your precious face.

SunThere is nothing to cling to.

Indeed, there is no clinging.

There is nothing by which to be repulsed.

Indeed, there is no repulsion.

There is no impurity to cleanse away.

Indeed, there is neither impurity nor purity.

There is no enlightenment to attain.

Indeed, there is no ignorance.

I am not this.

I am not that.

None of these things are in me.

I am in none of these things.

Nothing can hold me.

No one can keep me.

I am not merely free.

I am freedom itself.

And I will proclaim my Self from the tops of the mountains.

I will shout the Truth from the steps of every temple.

I will tell every being that I meet,

“I am divine, my sisters, my brother,

And so you are. And so are you.

For we are One. We are One!

And nothing can stop us now!”
