The Voice


It speaks for itself. From the book "Falling Up" by Shel Silverstein.

Empty Your Cup



"Empty your cup so
that it may be filled;
become devoid to
gain totality."
- Bruce Lee

Buddha Drank Tequila ???

Don't expect "perfection" from your teachers and rock stars. Allow yourselves to relax enough so that you too can write, draw, play a musical instrument and sing. Even Buddha and Jesus did things disapproved of by friends and others. Their "imperfections" were part of their wisdom.

Conclusions

The sound at the end of sound is silence; so much is said without saying a word.

Who Am I Today


WHO am I today? Who was I yesterday? Who will I be tomorrow? This little self, always changing. A bundle of feelings, thoughts, perceptions constantly looping back on itself.

Lantern

I tried to do this on my own.
I tried to guide others
When I could not guide myself
I tried to see
Through eyes that were closed
I gave my heart recklessly
Yet, I could not love myself

I see so much light around me;
Why then am I left in the dark?

Let me grieve entirely
Let me see through my tears
Tonight, show me a brighter way

Trapped in a Back Room


SOMETIMES A FLY GETS TRAPPED in a back room, attracted to the glass windows. Eventually it dies, not seeing the way out through a darker hallway to an open window. Humans get attached to the bright lights, big billboards, loud sounds, and media distractions. Eventually they can't change of direction back to the quiet voice of truth. They die unfulfilled. ∆

Long Distance

Age is just a
stop
watch
counting
life
as we run 
laps 
around a field

A track of 
time
going in
circles
as we
play 
the same 
game

Meditation Q & A at UC Berkeley - April 1, 2015

Question and answer period after 20 minutes of meditation. The students asked remarkable questions. A pure joy to respond to them from the heart. It was more about life than just meditation. The sound quality is poor, but you still can hear the remarkable inspiring questions.
