Morning Zen

Smooth places within. The water flows and it seems it does not touch itself. That is the water has no friction within the water. Friction with the earth and sand and stones and then the friction lessens in time and the stone is smooth and the flow gentle. The flow of our life smooth. Bumpy friction from outside forces. Bumpy friction from within the self. Yet, smooth in reality.
The hollow bone, smooth and nothing on the inside to resist the transmission of spirit.

My old friend Ed has a wonderful website. Supper fellow Eddie is. He really taught me how to cook and life lessons in a kitchen and famous fluffy pancakes.

Morning Zen

I remember that place now. Something not seen for so very long. That empty place within. Not the emptiness of zen and peace of the empty of darkness, something lost, something ripped out, something eaten away as if by acid whether by the self or others or by the nature of birth. Seeing that place long ago for the first time like the symbol on chest of a super hero, the symbol would be that of a blacked out sun. Long ago at 40 minus 17, when the journey of knowing the self first began. Today where is that place, what does it look like. Years of progress and years of naught. Did Winkle really sleep for low so many moons?

Morning Zen

Wake up. Do not fall asleep. Do not retreat into patterns of protection or destruction. Wake now and face the day.

Morning Zen

Oh yes. Choosing to walk into sleep. Not knowing long ago I chose to do that. Not so today. Choose today to Wake Up. Choose today to be authentic and hold fast to the vision.

Morning Zen

The moment is all. Be present and yet prepared. Seeing what is to come and being ready. The time for past and future is never here but always with us. Embracing those two within the present moment is a part of the moment but neither should control the present.
