So you want peace but do not believe you have it. It is not felt or experienced constantly or at all. What is keeping it from you but you. Seek we must for this is why all of the separated ones came. The “me” is constantly seeking, but who determines what it is you seek. The world cannot dictate what it is you seek. The seeker is the sought that cannot be seen. What is seeing cannot be seen, what is hearing cannot be heard. What you seek is is before the seeking. It is before the separation. What is the separation? It is that moment when a bubble was squeezed out of oneness and the “me” was fabricated. The subject/object split was born, the world of duality, of opposing forces.
Ok, so enough about that. No matter how many times one slices a quarter it will still have two sides. How is the quarter melted back into nothing. How if one decided to could he bring about his own collapse. I wonder back in George Washington’s day if asked to identify himself he pulled out a quarter? How do you identify yourself? Every decision you make will stem from what you think you are. Think that you are a body doomed to eventual destruction and an ego led life will follow. There are plenty of witnesses to this trend, just look around. It seems that we only ask “what can I dangle on my body to attract other bodies, what object can I get to make the body comfortable, what skill can I learn to ensure its safety and future security. What sense can I enjoy before my “time” comes, I must hurry before it’s to late. The identification with a body brings all sorts of issues along with it. Sickness is feared, not getting what it wants, getting what it wants, the idea of possession brings with it the possibility of loss. If it can get then it can lose.
How could time come to circumvent eternity? This is a nice pretty little sentimental statement, but does it mean anything to you. Do you believe it? Lets just fake it till you make it. If you actually did believe this without a doubt what would life look like. There is no hurry to do anything any longer. In fact, there is nothing to do or that can be done. Think about it, “eternity” no beginning and no end – no time. You just popped into this bubble for a little while to travel on at some point. Oh, I know, this is madness to the “me”. Those who have an investment cannot be a reliable witness to life and the “me” is heavily invested in it’s over learning of a insane world. It takes “me” very seriously, it thinks the “me” can change the ever present One Life to fit it’s goals. The One Life hides in plain sight from the seeker because of it’s seeking. the act of seeking IS what hides it.
The collapse of the seeker may become possible when it is seen that there never was anything to seek or a seeker to do it. The dualistic quarter melts back into the nothing from which it came. This is death before death. To die before you die and realize there was no death, nothing to fear, nothing to gain, nothing to do but realize this. Once realized, suddenly you can go anywhere and do anything.
Walking in the air,
Floating in the sky…
Floating in the air…
We’re walking in the air
We’re floating in the moonlit sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly
We’re holding very tight
I’m riding in the midnight blue
I’m finding I can fly so high above with you
Far across the world
The villages go by like dreams
The rivers and the hills
The forests and the streams
Children gaze open mouthed taken by surprise
Nobody down below believes their eyes
We’re surfing in the air
We’re swimming in the frozen sky
We’re drifting over icy mountains floating by
Suddenly swooping low on an ocean deep
Rising up a mighty monster from its sleep
We’re walking in the air
We’re dancing in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly
