MESSAGE FROM WAYNE


Hello my loves,

Don't forget to breathe!

We are bound by the finite limitations of our body/mind. Yet our breath is a point of connection with the boundless. It's the point at which our finite body and the infinite universe are experientially connected.

You can see the limitations of your body and you can sense the breath entering into you. Your breath is at the same moment you and not you, yours and the others. It enters you combines itself with you, becomes you.

With Grace the distinctions blur and  become confused.... the finite and the infinite converge. The stuff of breath knows no boundaries. It is at once everywhere and nowhere. You can feel it but you can't see it. It is essential and yet you cannot truly control it. With practice, you can certainly control your breathing but the breath itself remains elusive. It is no mistake that breath is at the center of so many spiritual practices. The very attempt to understand and control this breath leads inevitably to a kind of surrender. No matter how mindful you are, no matter how controlled your breathing there is always a moment in which the attention shifts away ...yet the breath and the breathing continue, unfettered by any claim of  control. In this most basic and simple recognition lies a doorway into Truth.

May it find you now!

With love,
Wayne

A HOMAGE TO THE UNIQUE TEACHING
OF RAMESH S. BALSEKAR
 

“How does one thank someone who gives you:

Freedom, from guilt and regrets of the past;
from fears of the future;
from the idea that one is not free;

Trust, in the moment that has to be exactly as it is;

Acceptance of and Contentment in whatever happens?

This time when I met him I understood that
the Guru is not loving; He is Love.
He is not kind; He is compassion.
And most of all, He is not in my heart;
He is my Heart.

For this blessing,
there is no way of being grateful enough.”

A LIVING GEM FROM RAMESH (NEVER BEFORE BEEN PUBLISHED)
“Birth” is being present in phenomenality, “death” is being absent in phenomenality, that is to say, birth is being absent in noumenality and death is being present in noumenality.  Therefore, living is a game of hide and seek.
