My Stillness

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Tucson, AZ

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

MoA#

I have been told ... "Find the safe and comforting space of your stillness."

Yet I have been still for so long now ...
... yes very still.

And in this exact moment, that's all I have left ...
... my "stillness".

Guess I should be grateful ...
... as there are many who don't have "stillness".

And yes ... I am grateful for mine.

But it feels so very lonely here ... perhaps a shift may be coming ...

Blessings Friend ...

On That Day of Passing

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Friday, April 26, 2019

MoA#

If you should be judged on your day of "passing" ...
What would you like it to be based on?

Perhaps on what you did and accomplished in your life?
... or perhaps on the wisdom you gained on your journey?
... or maybe even the person ... "the-who" you became?
... or something entirely different?

Which one would you choose?
Which one?

As for me me ... all of the above please.

The Ultimate Journey: Oneness

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Sunday, April 4, 2021

MoA#

Today, I realized ...
... with all that I know ...
... and all that I've learned ...
... and all that I have experienced ...
... I know nothing about what's truly important ...
... important in living life in Harmony with my surroundings.

For this is the dimension my life's journey has now brought me to ...
... a dimension somewhere over the rainbow.

And now that I've arrived ...
... I choose to begin "The Ultimate Journey" ...
... the Journey of Loving-Kindness with ... and for All ...
... the Journey of living life in Oneness, Harmony and Peace.

Rosebud

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Saturday, January 30, 2021

MoA#

As I watched the end of the movie "Citizen Kane" ...
... it made me wonder what my "Rosebud" would be.

Maybe my first 26 inch bike when I was 12 years old ...
... my best friend for several years that I called "Masey".

Do you have a Rosebud too?
Glad I did ... cause I loved mine.

A Silent-Knowing Revealed

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Sunday, March 7, 2021

MoA#

I heard many times over the years, this simple para-phrased thought ...

"Don't judge another until you have walked in their shoes."

And today I had a new awareness, a new realization about these words.

Interesting that today I understood what these words meant to me throughout my life ...
... but today I also understood these words from the perspective of "the-who" I am today ...
... an understanding that included a fresh dimension of Loving-Kindness ...
... and was revealed to me as Silent-Knowing.

What Do You Say?

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Friday, March 5, 2021

MoA#

Dear Friend ... I was just wondering how many of us can say ...

"MyGod is with me ...
... when I awake ...
... during the day ...
... when I sleep."

And for some, there is a nourishing practice ...
... a practice of sharing with TheirGod ...
... an appreciation for their connection ...
... as this sharing soothes their Heartcenter with Silent-Knowing.

And know for some when connecting with TheirGod ...
... it re-tunes their energy frequencies of ...
... peace ... and joy ... and love ...
... and feeling in tune with the energy frequency of Oneness.

A Vagabond First Class

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Friday, March 5, 2021

MoA#

How could I share love with someone ...
... if I didn't love myself?

And how could I love myself ...
... if I didn't know who I was.

Well, the time finally arrived when ...
... I stopped searching for "the-who" that I might be ...
... and accepted "the-who" that I was in that very moment ...
... and began to love myself with a Silent-Knowing.

And now I feel comforted ...
... as I share love with others.

Oneness with Ein Sof

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Monday, March 1, 2021

MoA#

Sometimes I choose to meditate to quiet the fears causing an uneasy feeling in my Heartcenter.

And when I quiet these fears ...
... an opportunity arises ...
... a joyful feeling of Peace and Oneness with Ein Sof ...
... as it soon blossoms with an inner smile ...
... and a Silent-Knowing that all is OK once more.

Towers in the Sky

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Sunday, February 28, 2021

MoA#

I often worked hard building magnificent towers up to the sky ...
... but when I would finish and reach the top ...
... I did not know what to do next.

And now that I do know ... I've stopped building towers in the sky.

Reality of Reality

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Wednesday, February 24, 2021

MoA#

Just listened to the words from this Rod McKuen song, "I'm at Peace", from 1974. Do you know of him?

I heard the words of this song reflect how I feel about "the-who" that I am in this moment of time ...

... because mostly "I am at peace" ...
... with a continuing acceptance of the "Reality of Reality" ...
... and a lost passion for denying "What-will-never-be".

Yes, the time is getting "closer" ... and being at peace with the "Reality of Reality" adds Silent-Knowing to my Heartcenter ... and makes it so.

The Power of Compassion

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Tuesday, February 23, 2021

MoA#

There are "things" that all humans have in common, important things ...
... whether the humans are right or left brain thinking ...
... or have an entirely different way being.

And one of these "things" most don't like to talk about is simply this ...
... the pain experienced in one's Heartcenter and Godsoul ...
... the pain that swoops down on us usually with little warning ...
... and often with a vengeance ...
... because something we dearly cherish and love has been negatively altered.

If there was someone who was your "unknown" enemy ... could they ever feel a similar kind of pain as you in their Heartcenter and Godsoul as just described?

Here is an opportunity in achieving peace with those of apposing thoughts ...
... no matter who they are ...
... listen with empathy to their "Pain" using the Power of Compassion.

Let them know you care (... because you are wise.)

One thing for sure ...

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Saturday, February 13, 2021

MoA#

The journey I thought my life would take me on ... and the journey I have experienced thus far are light-years apart.

In hindsight, it's easy for me to say "Thank You" Universe for all the many challenging and difficult life lessons you provided ... and for being so patient with me​.

But the journey certainly was never easy ... and at times, it was emotionally debilitating, right from the get-go. Over and over, I experienced the pain from an "emotional-void" in my life.

This may sound silly, but as a kid I had no name to call this feeling of "emotional-void" ... and I thought, "That's just how it is." ... like it or not.

Today, I deeply appreciate how my awareness and understanding of Life and Love and Compassion have transformed from the "the-who" I was ... to "the-who" I am in this very moment ... and then the next ... and the next ... always with an ever evolving Dimensions of Personal Awareness.

Any Purpose?

by:

Ronnie Kaufman

Ashland, OR

Saturday, March 21, 2020

MoA#

Is there really any purpose to it all?

What difference will it make in what I do and feel in a thousand years ...
... or a hundred years ....
.. or even just one year?

But what about a purpose for this very moment in time ...
... and the next moment ... and the next?

You choose? I did.

So many want to connect to the cosmos ...

... when they have yet to learn to connect with "pure-self".
