It was a sunny happy sort of day as Christopher Robin skipped along
the path. He felt light of heart, as he went into the woods, looking
for his dear friend Pooh.
Ah, there you are, he said, as Pooh came into view.
Pooh, who had just wiped his hands after putting the lid back on the
honey pot, beamed with delight at the sight of Christopher Robin.
I have been waiting, said Pooh, I have a question for you.
Oh, do please ask me the question now.
Well, I want to know What is that buzzing in my ears?
Christopher Robin thought for a minute or two.
Maybe it is the bee telling you he has made more honey.
Pooh laughed he thought that was funny.
Or maybe it's the Muse.
The who's?
The Muse.
Does she make music?
Oh yes Pooh and I can hear it too when I read some poetry.
Why gosh you started to teach me to read, oh my it wasn't easy but we
did try. Maybe I will just listen to the trees and the bees;
but sometimes my ears don't seem to work.
Pooh do you remember the secret, the one we shared before?
Remember we said " You listen with your heart"
Yes Yes shouted Pooh with glee I can hear with my heart.
Yipee!!
Two friends held hands and strolled along the path.

There is an art, he said
this language of the heart.
Words only take you so far.

Translator, translation, One
in the language of the sun.
Golden gems pearls of wisdom
radiant essence resides,
Not in land of near, or far
Nor in land of spacial-time,
but ever new 'within' you.
Not extinguishable!

But hush... what's that soundless sound?
Inaudible whispering
on the breath of the Divine.

Dear David

The resonance of your words
that swirl and curl around the heart,
enliven with delight,
lines that inspire and sparkle
in the day and in the night.

Thank You.

Dear Cheryl

Very sorry for my late response, and many thanks for your gracious encouragement.

Knowledge and Love

A gentleness with acute attention,
Where never any fault is mentioned.
All are perfect, from rest become,
And Love is manifestly One.

Heart both open and profoundly still,
Beats purely to His supreme will.
Knowing this in all of that
Endures beyond all mundane fact.

While heart may move and miss a beat
True Knowledge will ne'er meet defeat.
For what is Known in His abode,
Will never fade, or become old.

And now the crowning of this state,
Knowledge joined with Love innate.
Eternal bliss beyond all time;
Freedom at its most sublime.

(whisper words of wisdom)

when I find myself in troubles
and the world does not agree
there is always something saying
let it be; let it be

Paul had his mother Mary
and I my father too
both left prematurely
but did not make us blue

when all is just confusion
right and wrong is hard to see
something deep inside me whispers
let it be; let it be

do we really know the meaning
does the love still keep us free
never think it should be different
let it be; let it be

in the deepest stillness
in that place we all call home
there is no other answer
with my Father, all alone

I don't know how to say this
but thinking makes it so
surrender all your highness
let it go; let it go

In that deepest stillness
no thoughts will enter there
and with the greatest kindness
there is nothing we must bear

let it be; let it be
be in the love that calls to you
for in that great divideless
there is nothing else to know.

(All credit where credit is due to Sir Paul)

truth poetry love and stars

the lovers simply gaze upon you
as astronomers would measure your light traces
across the inky space between
(how many legion are you,
where did you come from?)

You sing in the stillness and silence the muse
you are indeed an immense army
(if love can be marshalled so)
who is your general if not Truth itself
(are you so far away that lovers do not feel you?)
Outside so far, inside expanding beyond

I shall not confine you to my thoughts
(or the limits of my earthly sight)
embraced in my heart of hearts
you carry me to the beginning of time
over the edge of the universe
looking back, I look into my very self

I and you shall be whole again
in the Truth of our existence
we were never apart (and you never left)
thinking you are distant I forget
when all I need remember is
You are here, in this boundless heart

creativity

there is the blank page
there is space
( in which
the page rests )
there is attention

three things to do
( or not )
fill the blank space
leave it as it is
or realise it is full

full of potential
and
( if it shall be filled )
let it be filled
with what is already there

Snowfall

Everything shines
and everything shines
because You shine.

You are the light of the light
the knowledge of meaning
the end of all seeming.

The fulfilment of seeking
the sun bows to the One
in this stillness that's full.

No gap between thinking
and being without ending
no question to answer.

Like a snowflake in hand
of its glorious maker
melt into His breath without breathing.

The snowman is made
by children at play
and melts in the sun.

That stillness uncovered
heart now without troubles
all is Blissful.

The song bird sang in a heart shaped cage

I was given an ancient song to sing
and taught it to a bird within,
which sweetly sang both true and clear
from dawn to dusk upon my ears.

It lived in a beautiful heart shaped cage
and sang through all the winter's days,
then I heard the sadness there
as it sang of freedom free from fear.

When hearing what that song bird sings
no other act can meet its plea,
except to open widows wide, unlock its cage
and let it to the heavens fly.

A host of Angels came to me
as in the heavens the song bird sung,
with the purest sound of an eternal kiss
in the arms of love and unending bliss.

And then I truly knew
what that ancient song can do.

Sitting near

I asked Him,
do You exist or not exist?
He smiled as He lit all I can see,
I feel I exist I said.
That is the feeling of existence, He replied.

Overcome desire and attachment
through understanding My existence.
Attain immortality
through understanding My non-existence.
These two together, He said.

Distinct from the known and the unknown.
Not known by he who knows,
known well by the one who knows not.
What speech cannot enlighten
and enlightens all speech, I am that.

So near and so large,
that far distant light.
Faster than the mind
and here in this heart.

I asked Him,
do I exist or not exist?
That is your choice,
He replied.

That which is known
is never forgotten.
Remember mind,
remember!

I

I will not let mind doubt You,
are You known by mind?
I will not let heart despair,
alienating Your benevolence.

I will not let patience run out,
for what is time in eternity?
I will count Thy blessings,
uncountable like the stars.

Above all I have You,
all in all and above all.
Nowhere can I lose You,
I cannot leave You.

For that which Is, is I,
and that which Is not, I is.

Saraswati,
provider of the gift of poesy,
dearly loved by those that love Him.
I know well that it is by you and through you
these words are brought forth.
Obeisance to you, great river of grace.


You are here.
What difference between
the perception of a snake
and the rope?
Your Knowledge.

You are everywhere.
Wherever mind goes
is full of Your presence
You know Yourself
through Your own Knowledge.

You are where mind cannot go.
Your all pervading essence
beyond all time and space
is inexpressible by words.
You are the source of all the worlds.

You are Self seated in the heart.
The eternal unmoving
from which all movement comes
uncovered by hearing
the words of Your Teacher.

May we set aside all thoughts
and clear the path to the heart
where You are waiting
to welcome Your Self
through the grace of Your Teacher.

Words of wisdom
from You, of You, to You
so we may know Self,
being, shining, loving
and in all forms and names.

What words shall be invoked; describe Thee well,
when all shall fail and fall upon deaf ears?
How then use words to make Thy presence known,
when not by them can Thou be ever truly shown.

I gaze upon the sun's resplendent orb,
now blind unto Your shining; always there?
Why wouldst Thou hide the glory of Thy true Self,
behind a light on which no man can stare?

But then in silence, through darkness of the night,
Your moon provideth all; in stillness, clearest sight.
The choir of stars sing hymns of praise as well,
declaring that in You they dwell, and You in all.

Not yet in full splendor may I, You see,
in Your reflection, this now content to be.
