Zen and the Art of my Blog

One of the central points of Zen is intuitive understanding. As a result, words and sentences have no fixed meaning, and logic is often irrelevant. Words have meaning only in relation to who is using them, who they are talking to, and what situation they are used in. Some postings are indeed nonsense; other postings appear to be nonsense at first but this is because the meaning is all between the lines. Zen and poetry have gone hand in hand for centuries

Please feel free to comment on this one.

Have you had most of your moments of enlightenment from meditation, from reading or from life experiences?

I think there is a message here

A message from stacey got me thinking about messages in songs, synchronicity and how damn cool Neil Young is.

"I Believe In You"

Now that you found yourself losing your mind
Are you here again?
Finding that what you oncethought was real
Is gone, and changing?
Now that you made yourself love me
Do you thinkI can change it in a day?
How can I place you above me?
Am I lying to you when I say

That I believe in youI believe in you.

Coming to you at nightI see my questionsI feel my doubts
Wishing that maybein a year or two
We could laughand let it all out
Now that you madeyourself love me
Do you thinkI can change it in a day?
How can I place you above me?
Am I lying to you when I say
That I believe in you
I believe in you.


The message is in the context of how you take the above lyric.

The profound and the inane are all around, sometimes in the same sentance, sometimes within the same word. There is always a constant discourse with the Universe that you as co-creator participate in.

Castles in the Air

Time after time I have built the castle. I get excited when I see the walls go up, filled with energy when the roof goes on. Can barely contain myself when I put up the battlements and defences.

Time after time the walls have been smashed, broken, burned to the ground.

Time to send the construction workers home

Congratulations!

You are there !

Give yourself a pat on the back, a gold star sticker AND an elephant stamp.

Like Cardboard

If everyone was enlightened would your experience of the world be better , worse or like cardboard

If everyone killed their ego would there be any fun?

Like I mentioned in my post I like people, I also like diversity. With diversity comes the idea of accepting. Accepting the good and the bad. The universe is perfect so let it be.

This is one to think about

Already There

Talk about Synchronicities.

Everywhere I turn today the message is "you are already there"

Ok Universe... I get it !

What the seeker believes - The same old story....

There once was a young person who realised that life was more then what they saw around them. They were lost, disillusioned and without purpose. Then they discovered spirituality. A whole new world opened up to them, and they saw a purpose behind the world. They searched for years and years, going from teacher to teacher, book to book. Then one day a master appeared that showed them the way. He spoke kind words of love and ever lasting happiness. The seeker studied with the master for years, slowly learning the secretes of this advanced, ancient wisdom.
Then one day the master comes to the seeker and says. You are now worthy of this knowledge, here it is. I give you the secret, they key. You are now enlightened.

And there were never any problems ever again.

Surrender

Maya grabs your mind
puts it in the hamsters wheel
makes it jump through hoops
forces it to run the marathon.
When you are exhausted, all the mind can do is fall down and surrender.
That where YOU step in.

Mind Games

People love an adventure, people love a puzzle, people love a quest, people love a problem.
People love a drama, people love mystery, people love suspense.
People love to get lost, people love to look for meaning.
People love to imagine, People love to dream.
People love to create.

Don't you know, talking 'bout a revolution ...

I have been silenty surfing the blogosphere over the past week looking at other enlightenment and spiritual blogs. There has been a vast proliferation of these sites starting at about June this year. Its as if there has been I huge "WAKE UP" message hurled from the cosmos at the searching, yearning minds of the true seekers.

Call it a new Aeon, the power of memes or just a coincidence.

Its happening

Happiness

What would make you more unhappy ....

Living your life not knowing what the future might hold, every day different. Letting experiences wash over you be they good or bad.

OR

Living 1 perfect day over and over again. Nothing going wrong but having to remember and control each experience so that the perfect day unfolds as planned

Go with the flow

There is no greater feeling of peace then when you find that your will is the same as the Universe, and that it is far easier to float down the river then swim against the current.

I have been away for the week - Now I'm Back
