One Hundred and Sixty-Four


164


Consciousness calls on itself to awaken others, as it has been awakened in you.
Pass it on freely, without dogma, to those who are inclined,
And be cordial, kind, tolerant and open,
As much as patience allows,
Toward the many sleepers who are not.

* * * *
Why waste time in regret?
There are probably relatively few
Who would not do many things differently.
But it is through everything you have ever experienced,
However well-intentioned or not,
That you are here now.

* * * *
Current times inevitably become ancient ones
In the current minds of any given future.
Everyone is living in modern times.

* * * *
Through the patterning,
The blueprint of the given seed,
The essential, indivisible nature of godness
Molds itself into every form.

* * * *
Totality, so infinite, so alone.

* * * *
It is really all the eternal now,
Nothing more, nothing less, nothing but,
Yet still you manage to awaken each and every day
Believing your dream real and true.

* * * *
The most powerful aphorisms
Are imbued with wisdom, subtlety, and wit,
Slathered with a generous topping of paradox and irony.

* * * *
It is all still Eden, of course,
But for some reason, trudging through a landfill
Will never be quite as enticing as meandering an untrammeled garden.
