This is Part 1 of 2
a field, transparent expanse
no inside, no outside
through all things
underneath all things
before all things
from which all things arise -
just movement rising and falling
no reference - one thing to another
nothing is object
and no attributes
thus nothing strikes -
one thing against the other
It is peace, utter peace
'the peace that passeth understanding'
the words 'peace' and 'calm'
are limp slivers of linguistic conceit
they cannot transmit this knowing
HOME of pure freedom
no me - no past, no identity - completely unbound
deep unfathomable peace
just the gift that always is
emerging through the door of this transcendent HOME
one last kiss and wave off:
"this is The Stillness. people live in this Stillness"
a respectful, gentle invitation ...
with a dash of humour,
like ... 'you might like to give this a try ... there's nothing stopping you' (nudge, nudge)
a white liquid light
through the head into the crevices of the brain
down into the body
filling every vibrating molecule with
scintillating divine light nectar
of which I had never known before
nourishing this material form.
A loving embrace - divine LIGHT pouring itself into 'me'
Every part of this body responded with delight
