Gently Walking Home

A   L   O   H   A  !
What can we gain by sailing to the moon
 if we are not able to cross the abyss that 
separates us from ourselves? 
This is the most important of 
all voyages of discovery.
        Thomas Merton

Gently direct your mind.
Steady your attention
on that which you choose:
The reality to be
It is all about the
person you desire to Be.

Do not seek to dam the flow.
Ignore the mental traffic;
Let it roll on, while you
gently return and hold
what you seek before your
inner eye.

Taming Ego, nothing less,
takes patience more than strength.
One day at a time.

If you are trying,
you are trying too hard.

Sit in the cave that is you.
and be surprised
as the light grows within.

Your private meditating time
will become a lovers rendezvous.
Every time, the person you become
grows into the person you are.

You grow effortlessly
because it's really not
about effort.

Just go every day to 
sit with your best self,
and you will come to wonder
if you were ever
anyone less.

Simply dwell on what you seek
as if it is Here & Now.
Until It Is.

Things in the world
may be known.
Things of the Spirit
you must Become.

Love You,
