The Riddles of Surrender

The Riddles of Surrender

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

May 12, 2022

MoA#

QUESTION: What is the difference between a Foolish Man ...
... who believes he knows and has everything
... and a Wise Man who knows himself?

ANSWER: The Wisdom of Surrender

When the Wise Man learned to surrender ...
... he became unified in Oneness with the Universe
... and engaged life with new eyes of wisdom
... as an awakened free spirit.

NEXT QUESTION: So just what was it the wise man surrendered ...
... and to whom?

A Practice of Coexistence

A Practice of Coexistence

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Apr 20, 2022

MoA#

A simple practice of coexistence with "the-All" ...
... for me starts with a practice of deep appreciation
... and deep respect for our dear Mother Earth I love
... with its myriads of incredible and amazing creations of all kinds
... creations that somehow keep those who practice, connected in Oneness.

And by living in coexistence with "the-All" ...
... the very wonder and beauty of Life itself thrives
... as it nourishes my heart and soul with all its splendor.

And each day is experienced in the SilentKnowing ...
... of Peace and Joy and Love.

Won't Be No-One ... Anymore

Won't Be No-One ... Anymore

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Apr 9, 2022

MoA#

Today, I have learned to accept ...
... that I am simply no-one special.

But I respectfully have this silly request ...
... a request to ask of you Life
... to let me be no-one with someone
... perhaps someone who is no-one too.

So I won't be no-one ... anymore.

 Phantom Personas

Phantom Personas

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Mar 22, 2022

MoA#

How could I ever believe in myself ...
... when I never knew exactly who I was?

And if I didn't know exactly who I was ...
... then how could I ever truly love myself?

And if I couldn't love myself ...
... then how could I ever truly love someone else
... and hope that they could love me back ... how?

Yes, it continues being a challenging journey finding me ...
... and perhaps I'm getting closer ... perhaps
... finding the real me under all the many phantom personas
... personas I've lived at one time or another in my life.

And it's been a long and difficult journey at that ...
... prying loose all those persona masks.

And for now those masks are gone ... and here I am today
... as I'm discovering the next who I might become
... an ever evolving someone I do want to believe in
... and someone who I do want to love.

So once again I ask myself ... "Who am I?"
... and now I simply say ... "I am."

Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Mar 21, 2022

MoA#

What is real for me in my life in this very moment ...
... are the emotions of my many past lives
... overflowing from my heart
... and oozing out from every crack and crevice.

Some joyful emotions but too many sad and empty ones ...
... sad and empty ones crying out and wanting to be soothed and healed.

And then there are my other emotions ...
... that simply acknowledge my very presence on earth
... for just being alive.

And what does all this mean to me right now ...
... and how I feel when my heart remembers the anguish of my past souls
... and deeply craves the very essence of Unconditional Love
... a love to nourish both my heart and soul
... and validates my life journey with purpose and meaning.

I welcome you home Unconditional Love.
Stay as long as you like.

All Aboard

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Mar 12, 2022

MoA#

I'd like to buy 1 ticket to "Anywhere" please ...
... except I don't know exactly where "Anywhere" is.

Yes ... a one way ticket for sure ... or maybe not.

I'm not even sure if I'd like "Anywhere" ... but I hope I do.

I hear "Anywhere" has everything I'll need ...
... it might even have a "me" I'd like to get to know.

All Aboard ... Track 12 ... Now leaving for "Anywhere".

All Aboard ...

Someplace New

Someplace New

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Mar 15, 2022

MoA#

When I close my eyes at night ...
... and disappear to unknown places ... to unknown dimensions
... yet to places I feel like I've been to before and sometimes know well
... and sometimes people who I know are there too
... yet they are in a way strangers as well.

And when I awake ... I ask myself ...
... who am I now in this moment?
... and where have I been?

And finally I ask myself ...
... am I back to where I started
... or have I been welcomed someplace new?

All ... when I close my eyes at night.

As the Next Truth is Born

As the Next Truth is Born

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Mar 14, 2022

MoA#

Yesterday ... Today ... Tomorrow.

Are they perhaps all the same...
... but with a different set of truths
... truths that all evolve
... from a beginning-truth
... and then to another-truth
... but NEVER to a final-truth.

Because there is always ...
... Today ... and always Tomorrow
... once more ... as the next truth is born.

You Don't Know What You Don't Know ... or Do You?

You Don't Know What You Don't Know ... or Do You?

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Feb 5, 2022

MoA#

The precious truths about life I deeply believe in ...
... and all they may offer me
... can be quite comforting to my day to day life.

But those same precious truths have limited me in appreciating ...
... other unknown and yet undiscovered life opportunities.

And when I am ready, to consider this ...
... step out of my personal comfort zone
... and into the unknown.

It is never easy and often causes feelings of fear and anxiety ...
... as I begin to explore and discover new life truths
... and new life realities
... as I cross over into a new dimension of life
... and begin to appreciate a life paradigm of understanding.

And I Call MyGod, "Hashem"

And I Call MyGod, "Hashem"

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Jan 8, 2022

MoA#

You likely have your own name for YourGod ...
... most do.

And there are those who will ask me ...
... "So just what is Hashem?"

And I have a very simple answer to share with them.
And yes, of course there is much more to tell ...
... but a simple answer is really all that is needed.

Simply put ... Hashem is ...
"PEACE and JOY and LOVE".

For me, what else do I need to comfort my Heart ...
... and to comfort my Soul at the same time?

Perhaps YourGod means ...
... these very same things to you as well.

"PEACE and JOY and LOVE".

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Nov 27, 2021

MoA#

When the Knower ...
... and the Knowing
... and the Known
... become One with each other,
... a new Peace emerges
... and radiates out from the HeartCenter.

That's the moment a new SilentKnowing is born ...
... and united with the wisdom of one's GodSoul
... as the Dimension of SilentKnowing evolves ... once more.

 A Delicate Balance

A Delicate Balance

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Nov 26, 2021

MoA#

Without my thoughts of Yesterday's life journeys gone by ...
... and without my thoughts of Tomorrow's life journeys yet to come,
... my thoughts of Today in this very moment, would have a different meaning.

And all the while, I guide such thoughts to align with each other ...
... and to stay in harmony ... and to stay in balance
... in balance with the desires of my own HeartCenter.

A FreeFalling Free-for-All

A FreeFalling Free-for-All

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Nov 9, 2021

MoA#

I find it quite disheartening that there is so much"spinning" of the Truth ...
... both from the politically Right and now the politically Left joining in.

All I can say is I'm tired of all the "untruths" and "twisted-truths" ...
... truths that are allowed to be irresponsibly spewed to the public ...
... it's becoming harder and harder to breath in clean air and the freshness of truth.

It feels like we have become a FreeFalling Free-for-All society ...
... with greed running loose in our government on all levels
... and the last time I checked ... there is still "no parachute" to break our fall.

Perhaps, it's all about counting the money ...
... cause someone owns 3 hotels on Boardwalk ...
... oh, and if by chance ... and when there is time
... it's about taking care of the rest of us.

A FreeFalling Free-for-All.

A Daily Practice - Reconnecting

A Daily Practice - Reconnecting

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Nov 9, 2021

MoA#

At each day start, I acknowledge and re-connect my HeartCenter and GodSoul to "MyGod" ...
... and feel the radiating love flow between them.

And I bring this mystical connection with me throughout the day ...
... acting as my guiding star
... providing courage, lovingkindness, and compassion
... while nourishing me with Peace and Joy and Love.

And when appropriate, I share this mystical connection ...
... with family, friends and strangers too ... every chance I can.

The Privileged

The Privileged

from my Moments of Awareness Collection

Nov 8, 2021

MoA#

Our world is composed of three simple economic groups ...
... the Haves (2%) ... the Have-Nots (55%) ... and those in between or TIB (43%).

And what the Haves do best ...
... is to give reason for TIBs and the Have-Nots
... to be in unending conflict with each other
... making the Haves the invisible good guys
.. thus allowing the Haves, these Privileged, to be controlling "it" all.

Help ... Help ... I can't breath.
