dreaming ourselves awake

The world is nothing but the picture of your own "I” consciousness. As if you had received a phone call telling you that you are, and immediately the world appears. When you are in deep sleep and you feel that you are awake, the dream world appears simultaneously. With the (knowledge) “I Am,” the world appears in the waking and dream states.

—Nisargadatta Maharaj



...



door of being, dawn and wake me,
allow me to see the face of this day,
allow me to see the face of this night,
all communicates, all is transformed,
arch of blood, bridge of the pulse,
take me to the other side of this night,
where I am you, we are us,
the kingdom where pronouns are intertwined,

door of being: open your being
and wake ....

—Octavio Paz
Sandstone, excerpt


.



All architecture is what you do to it
when you look upon it,

(Did you think it was in the white or gray stone?
or the lines of the arches and cornices?)

All music is what awakes from you
when you are reminded by the instruments,

It is not the violins and the cornets,
it is not the oboe nor the beating drums,
nor the score of the baritone singer singing

his sweet romanza, nor that of the men's chorus,
nor that of the women's chorus,

It is nearer and farther than they.

Once we dreamt that we were strangers.

We wake up to find that we were dear to each other.


—Rabindranath Tagore



...


This is how a human being can change:

There's a worm addicted to eating
grape leaves.

Suddenly, he wakes up,
call it Grace, whatever, something
wakes him, and he's no longer
a worm.

He's the entire vineyard,
and the orchard too, the fruit, the trunks,
a growing wisdom and joy
that needs not devour.


—Rumi
Coleman Barks version


...


Awake awhile.
It does not have to be
Forever,
Right now.

One step upon the Sky’s soft skirt
Would be enough.
Hafiz,
Awake awhile.

Just one True moment of Love
Will last for days.

Rest all your elaborate plans and tactics
For Knowing Him,
For they are all just frozen spring buds
Far,
So far from Summer’s Divine Gold.


Awake, my dear.
Be kind to your sleeping heart.
Take it out into the vast fields of Light
And let it breathe.

Say,
“Love,
Give me back my wings.
Lift me,
Lift me nearer.”

Say to the sun and moon,
Say to our dear Friend,

“I will take You up now, Beloved,
On that wonderful Dance You promised.”


—Hafiz


...


The world you can perceive is a very small world indeed.

And it is entirely private.

Take it to be a dream and be done with it.

wakey, wakey

Don't go back to sleep.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don't go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the
doorsill where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don't go back to sleep.

mind is a passage






.


The utmost mission of Mind
is to train our obscure consciousness
which has emerged out of the
dark prison of Matter,
to enlighten its blind instincts,
random intuitions,
vague perceptions till it shall
become capable of this greater light
and this higher ascension.
Mind is a passage,
not a culmination.


Sri Aurobindo  (1872 - 1950)

the nature of things





.


In any weather, at any hour of the day or night, I have been anxious to improve the nick of time, and notch it on my stick too; to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line.
You will pardon some obscurities, for there are more secrets in my trade than in most men's, and yet not voluntarily kept, but inseparable from its very nature.


—Henry David Thoreau
from Economy, 1854

...


Quantum mechanics teaches us not to think about the world in terms of “things” that are in this or that state but in terms of “processes” instead. 

A process is the passage from one interaction to another. 

The properties of “things” manifest themselves in a granular manner only in the moment of interaction—that is to say, at the edges of the processes—and are such only in relation to other things. They cannot be predicted in an unequivocal way, but only in a probabilistic one. 

This is the vertiginous dive taken by Bohr, Heisenberg, and Dirac—into the depth of the nature of things.

No. 1 of 'Four Quartets'

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.

What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation.

What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.

Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden. My words echo
Thus, in your mind.

But to what purpose
Disturbing the dust on a bowl of rose-leaves
I do not know.

Other echoes
Inhabit the garden. Shall we follow?

Quick, said the bird, find them, find them,
Round the corner. Through the first gate,
Into our first world, shall we follow
The deception of the thrush? Into our first world.

There they were, dignified, invisible,
Moving without pressure, over the dead leaves,
In the autumn heat, through the vibrant air,

And the bird called, in response to
The unheard music hidden in the shrubbery,
And the unseen eyebeam crossed, for the roses
Had the look of flowers that are looked at.

There they were as our guests, accepted and accepting.
So we moved, and they, in a formal pattern,
Along the empty alley, into the box circle,
To look down into the drained pool.

Dry the pool, dry concrete, brown edged,
And the pool was filled with water out of sunlight,
And the lotus rose, quietly, quietly,
The surface glittered out of heart of light,
And they were behind us, reflected in the pool.

Then a cloud passed, and the pool was empty.

Go, said the bird, for the leaves were full of children,
Hidden excitedly, containing laughter.

Go, go, go, said the bird: human kind
Cannot bear very much reality.

Time past and time future
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.

–T. S. Eliot

528 Hz - The Love Frequency

According to Dr. Leonard Horowitz, 528 Hertz is a frequency that is central to the “musical mathematical matrix of creation.” More than any sound previously discovered, the “LOVE frequency” resonates at the heart of everything. It connects your heart, your spiritual essence, to the spiraling reality of heaven and earth.

Let the Love 528 music play inside you.

The Love frequency is the “Miracle” note of the original Solfeggio musical scale. Independently confirmed by researchers, these core creative frequencies were used by ancient priests and healers in advanced civilizations to manifest miracles and produce blessings.

Math scientist Victor Showell describes 528 as fundamental to the ancient Pi, Phi, and the Golden Mean evident throughout natural design. Vic Showell and John Stuart Reid (a pioneer in acoustic research and cymatic measurements) have proven that 528 is essential to the sacred geometry of circles and spirals consistent with DNA structuring and hydrosonic restructuring.

528 resolves to a 6, the icon for physical manifestation. That is, 5+2+8=15; and 1+5=6 (using Pythagorean math). The symbol “6” reflects the “spiraling down from heaven into the wholeness of earth.” In fact, the Love frequency can be fundamental to broadcasting all matter and energy into reality according to the laws of physics.

528 is known as the ‘Miracle’ tone which brings remarkable and extraordinary changes. Dr. Joseph Puleo analyzed the meaning of the tone using Latin dictionaries and hidden entries from Webster’s Dictionary. The “Mi” tone is characterized as:

1. an extraordinary occurrence that surpasses all known human powers or natural forces and is ascribed to a divine or supernatural cause, esp. to God.

2. a superb or surpassing example of something; wonder, marvel [1125-75]; ME

The 528Hz tone alone is associated with ‘DNA Repair



...



Bright but hidden, the Self dwells in the heart.
Everything that moves, breathes, opens, and closes
Lives in the Self. This is the Source of Love
And may be known through love but not through thought.
This is the goal of life.

Here are woven heaven and earth,
Mind and body. Realize this as the One
Behind the many and stop all vain talk.
This is the bridge from death to deathless life.

Where all the nerves meet like spokes in a wheel,
There dwells the One behind the many.
Meditate upon This in the mantram.
This is the guide from death to deathless life.

This Source of Love is before and behind.
It extends to the right and to the left.
It extends above; it extends below.
There is no one here but the This.
This alone is; in truth, This alone is.


—The Mundaka Upanishad

Hell is in the here and now. So is heaven. 

Do not worry about hell or dream about heaven, as they are both present inside this very moment. 

Every time we fall in love, we ascend to heaven. 

Every time we hate, envy, or fight someone, we tumble straight into the fires of hell.

The day I am killed
my killer will find
tickets in my pockets:
One to peace,
one to fields and the rain,
and one
to humanity's conscience.
I beg you--please don't waste them.
I beg you, you who kill me: Go.

Stone by stone and step by step
And heart by heart and head by head
The beautiful days do pass

Thread by thread and leaf by leaf
And one by one and each by each
The days are beautiful and do not pass

Grain by grain and body by body
Side by side and hand by hand
Good will win the battle

Stone by grain and each by one
And hand by heart and head by heart
Love is as vast as the world.

In the universe, there are things that are known,
and things that are unknown, and in between, there are doors.

Viewed with the patience of centuries

(from deep equanimity),

or with the precision of the

seemingly solid experiences are in fact
