photo1aAlthough Truth is nearer and more intimate than the end of our nose,
Our conditioning ensures the door to seeing IT is tightly closed.
Yet the Light we seek is always Present at both ends of the Tunnel
But to see it, we need to tear away the false, using Direct Experience as our funnel.
We start by filtering out the appearance from the Real
Until the intimacy between you and tree, cup or table is something you can feel
Until it’s real-ised there is no ‘you’ to interfere or get between.
Because when opinion,and description is dropped, it’s clearly seen:
Just me AS trees, me AS cups, me AS tables,
In total relationship with everything, when empty of labels
Do you SEE?
For instance, every time we name or exclaim the beauty of a flower.
There is now a ‘you’ (the exclaimer) AND the flower!
Instead, be an EX- claimer – not an exclaimer!
Without all descriptions, judgements, comparisons and names,
What remains?
Just the pure flowering of the flower.
And here-in, lies the ultimate Power.
I AM flower-ing. I am experiencing blooming and petal-ing-ness
I am feeling my leaves blowing
I am the river flowing
It is I, fully in flight, petal-ing – leaf-ing, people-ing.

When we drop the assessment and all our investment,
And beliefs and ideas about all of appearance,
The obstacles are removed that block our pure experience
Such as all resistance and false ideas of distance.

When INTEREST in the commentary is truly diminishing
It’s a sign that our sense of duality is finishing
When life-in-this-moment-now is all that is prominent
Then interest in thinking is no longer dominant.
There will never be an end to thought
Simply, that we are no longer caught. (Mandi Solk)

Now, if there is joy in the reading of this, then what exactly IS that joy?
Is the real joy coming from opinion about the poem?
As in like or dislike? Good or bad? Well or poorly written?
Or is the joy more intimate than that? Directly experienced as a resonance, which feels like expansion? If that is the case, do you see that the first (opinion) is an interference with the direct experience of the joy? But that the latter, is in the resonating with the poem, and is purely joyful, unadulterated, pure expansion? Do you see, that when left alone, without comment, the direct experience of the Poem is completely intimate? The deep, resonant joy of relationship, of One-ness, is present because you are BEING everything, that IT is expressing. No ‘you and it’ – no duality here.
And the same can be said, if you disliked the poem! Your direct experience would be one of contraction instead of expansion. No ‘you’ making comment such as disliking – just contraction.

“When INTEREST in the commentary is truly diminishing
