Wake Up!

Wake up! Now is the time. Instant enlightenment comes to those who realize that this life is short. Like a lightening flash in the open sky. So be prepared. Stay awake. Now. Now, and now. Here and now.

We gradually grow into enlightenment - which is the purpose of life. Being patient as well as sensing urgency are important. It takes however long it must take; yet, there needs be enough urgency to constantly remember that today could be the "last day" of our lives.

I am living the mystery of life
moment by moment.
Wisdom comes with suffering.
The older I get, the younger
everyone else becomes.
With age comes a certain now
kind of freedom.

Casting Spells

Where've you gone? Our philosopher is at large...
Take the flashlights and proceed with caution
Its a very long way down

The still clear water

The still clear water
one pebble falls
waves, waves, stillness

Breath of Life

A long time ago, I killed a mouse in the kitchen by dropping it into a bucket of water. Thinking that would drown him. But it kept swimming back up to the surface. The mouse eventually drowned. At the moment of death a white mist came out of its mouth into the water. That was the mouse’s last breath - as if “seeing” his life spirit leave the body. One of the most memorable experiences in my life.
