Coffee Musings

What is it about the anticipation of travel that brings up the spiritual? That is it seems the movement to a place with purpose brings a direction of thought and feeling that is not possible in the stillness. Now the stillness is a bringer of a peace unmatched; movement bringing out something different, a yearning fulfilled.

but then to not to figure out but the mode is of utmost importance.....
......travel may exhibit in many disguises…..the travel of the physical…… the travel in the mind,….the travel in the spirit….the direction is limited by the traveled’s mode…

…..in one mode and from two points of presence, there is but one direction….there is no east and west from either of these points, only one direction of travel…..which are indeed opposites from any other point on the physical Earth…..

So it is the realm of life….one direction from one point…one destination from a given point….and one life to see the world…..the spirit…..and experience mysterious ways of life…..
From this moment forth there is but one direction of travel…..to the next moment….to the next experience…..to the next destination…..


The bindings of the physical have no power in the mind…in the spiritual…. the mind powers the imagination…..the moments of stillness provide the total escape from the physical to a realm without limits…..as the ecliptic passing of the celestial objects their touching may appear a reality even as they are millions of miles apart…….as in the vastness of the empty universe…..the emptying of the mind gives over the ultimate travel …..the ultimate peace…..the ultimate trip……..

Namaste’
