Stay Woke

shadow_of_the_buddha_1

I sit in contemplation that the hidden be revealed. It dwells there behind the recesses of my mind. Truth. I retrieve it as though a memory locked in a box.

No box.

No lock.

The key has always been there in the seeking, in the turning within. To follow inside the going is to arrive at the place of non-arriving. There is nowhere to go when we follow within.

We travel:

by way of vibration and energy.

We move by way of breath:

Inhale.

Exhale.

This is the essence of Truth. This is the mystery that sweeps in and leaves us profoundly changed.

Awake.

And when we have contemplated for a while, touched the recesses of our minds, seen the face of truth, and breathed it in, we experience what it means to be Woke.

    Brilliant! I’ve recently really turned within and tuned in to feel the frequencies I want to project, outwardly.

    Thank you! Every day is an opportunity to practice. May we step up to that plate.
