Ineffably graced

(A poem written on 22 February, 2011) The ecstatic simplicity of being, Thus far not tasted, touched, nor seen. I meditate. Sitting, silently, aware, I await my introduction, An initiation, an audience of sorts. How much longer, I wonder, and wander. A question of...

Queen Street, 11:55pm, April 25th, the year 2006…and yet as I sit here I must remind myself this is Auckland—a relatively small city of only 1.5 million or so. What of Los Angeles, London, Hong Kong, Singapore, New York—and so many others—where...

Between two worlds

Caught between two worlds, The world I see with my eyes, And the world I know with my mind, … the world I feel within my Being. Caught between two worlds, The world that knows who and what I am, And the world that knows only what it believes, … the world...

Didactics in paradoxes

Here is a something I received from a dear friend, teacher, and Buddhist Master I knew for 3 months when I lived in Switzerland back in 1996. His name was “The Count of Montecristo” although many just called him Soami (so-am-i). I may never see him again...
