George Harrison and the Tao Te Ching 

I was reading a passage from the Tao Te Ching and was reminded of a song by George Harrison, “The Inner Light”.

I listened to it again and discovered that George was probably reading the same passage and was inspired to write the song.

Tao Te Ching  (47)

translated by Stephen Mitchell

 

Without opening your door

you can open your heart to the world.

Without looking out your window

you can see the essence of the Tao.

 

The more you know

the less you understand.

 

The Master arrives without leaving,

Animal Communication 

Reading “Kinship With All Life” by J. Allen Boone again after many years. I am seeing it through new eyes and understanding the depth of what he is teaching about animal communication.

 It begins with his relationship with Strongheart, a German shepherd movie star, and what this noble intelligent dog taught him. …”behind every object which the senses can identify, whether the object be human, animal, tree, mountain, plant or anything else, and right where the object seems to be, is the mental and…

Something to Embrace for this Holiday Season and Always 

There are so many mis-alignments brought on in so many ways by the old structure holding on for dear life to its power and selfishly obtained wealth. Worshiping in the temple of what no longer serves us.

I’d like to focus on what we are creating:

“I am you, and you are me, and we are all together” (The Beatles).

“God in me, as me, is me”

“Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream.”

"We can not…

I Believe in the Human Heart 

I believe in the human heart as the center fire of our spiritual existence in a human body on the earth plane. That as we all breathe to live, these are our common connections around the globe. And in the peaceful centered mind in our hearts breathing in gratitude we connect with our common source, which has many names. And through this prayerfulness we can reach others in compassion and hold them safely, and guide our way to peace upon the earth in the winds of grace.

 

I believe in walking the beauty…

Peace 

 

Peace is a state of the heart that is steady when all that rushes in from the mind of the worldly pulls us and distracts us from that which is inherently ours. A connection with the Divine, the Universal, the stillness that is always available to us if we but remember – to follow the breath as it comes in and goes out. Watch the breath’s independent ebbing and flowing to connect our bodies, hearts and minds with the unlimited present. It is knowing that now between the past and future is all that is…

Speaking of Sound and Silence 

Silence is a precious gift. An inalienable right omitted from the US constitution From the field of silence all sounds can spring. It is the space of breath and the place of listening. In the silent spaces among between and within sound is the place that allows the assimilation of what is heard. The nervous system, heart and cells of the body of necessity are slower to know what is experienced than the mind Creating breathing spaces in music allows deeper listening and an opening by the body on all…
