the challenge is to take words and to say what cannot be said
it absolutely cannot be said
it definitely cannot be said,
the things that stir
how a seed arises
we cannot say anything of the meaning
we cannot say anything of the stirring
the underground where being lives
the underground where the music is
you drink in life because there is nothing better
last time when i nearly died i saw:
“life is the master”
LIFE is the spirit, life is god
breaking as it does upon itself in order to feed itself
a circle that cannot be broken
a circle that cannot be fathomed
a circle of living dying breaking making loving quaking and all
of that reclaiming, life reclaiming itself,
life reclaiming itself from the ashes,
life reclaiming its fire from the bones,
life unknown… life dancing, life crying, life singing
i drink the silent language of life
something that can’t be said
there is no refuge in the words
i drink the rhythmic tides of life
forgotten and ignored
essential and primal
Life gave me a feeling, or, an ocean of feeling
a fire rising into the night
i decided i’m not going to put it out
…and what will you do with this flame?

Emotion in you is Aliveness in you. If you suppress your emotions (there are SO many ways to do this!) you suppress your Aliveness - and your Aliveness is your Life. Emotion is the flowing water of life-force, the river of life... if you can flow with it, you can dance with it, and if you can dance with it, you can find that the very substance of the water itself is ecstasy, without reservation.
Freedom happens in THIS moment... not in some future moment. There are no prerequisite conditions for Freedom - freedom, by its nature, is unconditional.

"To be fully human is to be wild. Wild is the strange pull and whispering wisdom. It’s the gentle nudge and the forceful ache. It is your truth, passed down from the ancients, and the very stream of life in your blood. Wild is the soul where passion and creativity reside, and the quickening of your heart. Wild is what is real, and wild is your home." - Victoria Erickson
Spirit impregnated itself into Matter
Light pierced the Darkness
Sound was only heard in its passage through Silence
Opposites unite in order to form All of The Mystery of Infinite Creation
Therefore the fighting for dogma has no place in this realm
Opposites must meet and become one for Life to continue
This is the secret law
This is the winner takes all
This is the tantra of every breathing moment
The still point marries the moving
The walls they build will be their downfall
But a thousand fragrant roses bloom when sun penetrates shadow.

"Oh Love... come & wash this world clean."
Rebuilding our essential (& beautiful!) Ecosystem... "''Why don't you put back the rainforest that was here before? Let's build the paradise again.' Slowly this dead land started to be born again. We started to plant hundreds of thousands of trees, and the life started to come back in an incredible way. We must rebuild these forests. That is the essence of our life, these forests. We need to breathe. The only factory capable to transform CO2 into oxygen, are the forests. The only machine capable to capture the carbon that we are producing, always, even if we reduce them, everything that we do, we produce CO2, are the trees. For the water system, the trees are essential. When you have rain in a place that has no trees, in just a few minutes, the water arrives in the stream, brings soil, destroying our water source, destroying the rivers, and no humidity to retain. When you have trees, the root system holds the water -- and maintains our rivers, and we need water for every activity in life. ... We are with two million trees in the ground now. We are doing the sequestration of about 100,000 tons of carbon with these trees." - Sebastiao Salgado

Do you move your Body every day? Bodies want to MOVE!
"Life is not somewhere waiting for you, it is happening in you. It is not in the future as a goal to be arrived at, it is here now, this very moment — in your breathing, circulating in your blood, beating in your heart. Whatsoever you are is your life, and if you start seeking meaning somewhere else, you will miss it. Man has done that for centuries." - Osho

LIFE always wants to flow, to move... LIFE is movement... a dance with the whole

"Meditation, really, is a penetration into the unknown, and so the known, the memory, the experience, the knowledge which it has acquired during the day, or during a thousand days, must end. For it is only a free mind that can penetrate into the very heart of the immeasurable." - Krishnamurti
Bliss is not an attainment. It's one of the secrets, an obvious secret - we were all created through bliss. We are embodied in this realm, in this reality, and we were created through ecstasy & through bliss, in order to have a body. And what that means is if we get really clear about it, and if we allow the clarity about it, actually this entire existence, as it is, its fundamental nature is bliss. So bliss is actually more real than the suffering. So the invitation to all of us, always, is to let go into the consciousness, into the space of awakeness that is complete freedom.

Dare to Be Present®
"We must accept heartbreak to be fully human. We cannot love without tasting some blood, nor connect without braving some chink in our armor. Those who are most spiritually naked, most transparent, are also those who see most fully. 'Let the scar of the heart be seen,' said the prophet, 'for by their scars are known the men who are in the way of Love.' Holy books encourage us to strip ourselves bare - to allow ourselves to be burned all the way through by our passionate quest if we wish to be whole." - Mark Matousek
