The Love that Lives Between

If you and I,

and all we see,

are products of the mind.

An open wound,

a broken heart,

are often what we find.

We seek for God,

we seek for peace,

we separate ourselves.

We try to find some

answers in the books

upon the shelves.

But God and we

aren't separate,

when all is said and done.

The more we look,

the more we see

that God and we are One.

When words and thoughts

speak not to us,

and "God " dwells in the mind,

The only truth is

Silence now,

no "I am " can I find.

Without the "me",

without the "God",

the Truth is plainly seen.

The only Real that ever was;

The Love

that lives between.

I sat alone today

I sat alone today

and left behind the

"I am".

I sat alone today

and emptied my head

of self/no self.

I sat alone today

and dangled my toes

in life's answers.

I sat alone today

and cried for sorrow

and for Joy!

I sat alone today

without the "I am".

I simply was.

"Love, like a drop of dew,

falls gently on the quite stream

of Love itself,

and "life " begins.

Like the ever widening ripples

stirred by the single drop,

life goes on until it returns

into the stillness of the stream."

The Ink Flows Freely

The ink in the pen,

like all perceived,

is Love itself.

With words,

either drawn

upon the brain,

or laid to paper,

I lose the very image

given on a cloud.

Clear in heart

but vague

in consciousness,

tears of recognition

run down the cheek.

Oh, that I could

hand it to you

like a ripened plum.

Perhaps you might

seek the tree

to which I point.

Finding the Fruit

is your affair.

Consuming it's essence

is silent, singular.

Perhaps the

tree of life

to which I point,

will expose it's fruit

and you will be

consumed in the consuming.

I can give only

the Love that flows

from the pen.

pointing where it may.

Given by Love itself,

the ink flows freely.

Unfolding Love

Unfolding from between the soft hiding places

of Father's coat,

we sally forth,

safe in Love.

Imagining mountains and valleys

in the unfolding of the sheets and blankets

around our toes,

life is unfolding in one



bumbling pirouette.

Love's Expression

Does this "story" of Love become "real"

in my writing it,

or in your reading it?

Or is the reality in the

Love expressing itself as "both"?

Ramana's Smile

"If I allow you to


Ramana's words

for me,

who will be found

to interpret

Ramana's Smile? "

The Wonder of the Child

To recapture the

Wonder of the Child,

is to look into

the face of God -

and find him smiling back.

Judge Not

"When we judge another's spirituality,
we often say little about their's
and much about our own."

Ego's Announcement

"When enlightenment is declared,
it's the ego that makes the announcement!"

The Kiss of Stillness

The kiss of stillness comes from

the wordless understanding of

Love without subject or object,

and unlimited potential,

without the concept of time.

Where only Love Dwells

I take my stand

in that space between

God and myself,

where only Love Dwells.

Faces in the Mirror

Through Love's Childlike play,

my face, and God's are reflected

in the same Mirror.

Gratitude and Trust

Each Dawn, in the Sunrise, I am Gratitude.

Each eve, in the Sunset, I am Trust.

The Empty Vessel

"The empty vessel catches the Rain."

Complete Understanding

"When you completely understand

that there is no complete understanding,

your understanding is complete."

Love in Action and in Silence

The disappointment of finding our image of "God" is illusion,

is quickly overcome by the Realization that we are
God's" Love in Action and in Silence.


‎"God" and "I" are One,

when "God" and "I" are not.

Love in Action

"Instead of trying to impress others with our "knowledge"
and clever humor,

why not simply lose the "self" in Love?

There is more Truth in the act of

wiping a sick person's backside,

than in all the Spiritual texts put together."

The Last Duality

After we have discerned the real from the illusory,
the interior from the exterior,
we need to resolve the duality of
both interior vs. exterior and real vs. illusory.

Hang On!

When religion, thought, and mind are seen through,

and the "other" stands naked as illusion,

all that is left is to embrace Life with the

illusory arms of Love, and hang on.

Without Tears

The chill wind blows.

The crimson-yellow leaf

shivers and falls,

without tears.

The falcon and the dove dance.

The falcon; the dance of life,

the dove; the dance of death,

without tears.


"Like the Bubbles from a Child's pipe,
thoughts, concepts and worlds arise in luminous fascination;
only to burst into a sudden shower of nothingness."

An Open Mind

‎"A Truly Open Mind Accepts All

and Clings to None."
