Sunrise Romance

I think there are many moments that come through that are meant to be just for you. Like an intimate secret shared between two lovers, you and life, whispers of love, arranging themselves as special sparkling moments.

The best way to honor them for me, is to keep quiet, to just let them be, to admire them, take them in, and let them live secretly inside of me feeding me all sorts of delicious feelings for which there are no words.

It's like when a lover buys you a gift, it's just for you, for your eyes, for your heart, for you and only you - it's between the two of you, a private exchange, like a look only the two of you understand. Life does this with you in so many of your moments.

That's what these moments are. Keep quiet about them. Let them nourish you secretly, deeply, as they bring to flower new worlds inside of you.

We talk too much. We spill the energy in excitement and eagerness, and we don't let ourselves just sit in it, marinate in it, bask and swim in it, letting ourselves remain in the embrace of this secret communication, this deep communion that comes through.

We must do that more, for everything deepens us when we simply let ourselves live in its presence. To talk about the details of this eternal embrace that comes through and to simply let yourself live in its presence bring about completely different experiences. One keeps us on the surface while the other let's us reach deep into spaces we've never touched before.

I love this life. For reasons I'll never write or speak of, for reasons and moments I feel so deep in my being more often now, I love all of it. The greatest romance you can come to live is with the whole of life itself.

Words cannot express things; 
Speech does not convey the spirit. 
Swayed by words, one is lost; 
Blocked by phrases, one is bewildered. 
 - Mumon

Less talking, more being and living in the Great Feeling.

Yours in the Romance,

Baby Smiles as Meditation

You know when you're having a frazzled day and something pops up in your face to get you to slow down, get back to earth, and just remember how amazing life is? Today, that something for me was a smiling baby.

In my mad dash to get all my errands done, I was up in my head rushing through the aisles of the store and running through the checklist in my head. I get that way now and again, forgetting to breathe deeply and relax into my moments. I can't even say it's the human condition or the world we live in. It's not any of that, it's forgetting to remember or overlooking the ease and flow that's always here to carry us when we remember to just slow it all down.

I look up as I push my cart around, and there he is, this little round faced ball of happiness just staring at me. The moment our eyes meet, he breaks into a huge smile like my turning to look at him was all he was waiting for, like we're bff's who haven't seen each other in ages and are about…

What does it mean to Honor the Self?

Such great wisdom from Dr Nathaniel Branden:
The first act of honoring the self is the assertion of consciousness. The choice to think, to be aware, to send the searchlight of consciousness outward toward the world, and inward toward your own being. To fail in this effort is to fail the self at the most basic level. 

To honor the self is to be willing to think independently, to live by your own mind, and to have the courage of your own perceptions and judgments. 

To honor the self is to be willing to know not only what you think, but also what you feel, what you want, need, desire, suffer over, are frightened or angered by, and to accept your right to experience such feelings. The opposite of this attitude is denial, disowning, repression, self-repudiation. 

To honor the self is to preserve an attitude of self acceptance, which means to accept what you are without self criticism, without lying about who you are in a pretense aimed at deceiving either yourself or someone else.

The End of Time: The Next Revolution in Our Understanding of the Universe

When a book clearly articulates a map of "time" that makes the most sense, you have to go get yourself a copy of that book...

“Nows within this now, rather like snapshots in an album. Each Now is separate and a world unto itself, but the richly structured Nows 'know' about one another because they literally contain one another in certain essential respects. As consciousness surveys many things at once in one Now, it is simultaneously present, at least in part, in other Nows. This awareness of many things in one could well exist in a much more pronounced form in other places in Platonia.” ― Julian Barbour
