These posts are original material but aren't based on any spiritual expertise on my part.
If asked what my credentials were I would say none in particular!
I've simply re-configured what I've absorbed, pondered, and wondered about.
You will notice the lack of links to source material. Why is that?
To emphasize the Inner Resource within each.
To underline that we can recognize and do this in our own way.
I believe we're all more able to immediately grasp what's behind the scenes.
The ability to 'get it' keeps getting ratcheted up, a shortcutting of the usual hurdles.
Mind is fast, almost instantaneous, but awakening is immediate.
How could it not be? When awakening itself is constantly attracting us, pulling us, what other outcome could there be?
Picture a crowded mind quieting enough to get intuitive glimpses of awakening; an inkling, a whiff, a feeling or recognition in the heart, in our core.
It's the place of inspiration where spirit first quickens at the prospect of waking from the dream of life in illusion. At this stage we pop in and out of these experiences, like being a tourist with a visa.
It's where we start to feel the pull, the attraction of awakening, where we start to trace its borderlines.
At best, that is the source, the territory from which these that posts derive.
STYLE OF POSTS
The style of these posts is intended to suggest and evoke, not to explain or elaborate. It's based more on poetry than punditry or maybe somewhere in between.
Poetic imagery suggests several facets at once, saving a lot of space and time.
More descriptive or analytical approaches are for bigger books.
Spiritual themes arefraught with paradoxes and seeming contradictions, more so to an impatient mind. This approach seeks to calm the mind and open the heart.
Each pathway is a self-discovery that one cannot describe in advance, nor need anyone else attempt to do so. But discovery can be encouraged.
Outlines of the awakening force at the roots of our lives can be traced, can be felt, can be intimated.
