Spring Song Sutra

In the bare-tree gray light of ten thousand criss-crossing boles and branches,

this luminous green consciousness of embryonic leaves begins to shimmer,

while the goldfinch of mind is singing in its yellowed yellowing voice: it’s spring,

it’s spring, hallelujah for an April sky omnipotent has raineth, so it’s spring!

Here and now one apperceives it’s blonde on blonde, or love on love, i am i am,

a love supreme, a love supreme, a love supreme, clear light beholding pure white light,

in reality where all is spring, spring, spring beyond, spring altogether beyond,

O what an awakening!


The 'I Am' Sutra

among all this useless and pointless knowledge is
this one pointer: i am. use it.

'i am' happens;
everything else is just a sad duplication.

there is no object
in 'i am.'

the only thing to remember is
to forget everything you've remembered.

when all is forgotten, one is:
i am.


The Electrodynamics of Consciousness

When light sees itself, no longer is
there any evidence of light,
for light at the speed of light is timeless
and spaceless, and in this manifestly
impossible world of congregation
with weight, light has always been massless, and you,
in truth, have always been light.



I Am (wholly holy holey)

You are that point of timeless pointless
nameless empty everything
unmanifested deep within
and far without which manifests
itself as God the Universe
of Spirit Being Consciousness
occurring wholly everywhere
and everytime including this
psychosomatic entity
with which that God mistakenly
and stubbornly identifies
becoming lost within the fear
and pain of astronomical
infinitesimal impromptu
energies until it dawns
upon the light still shining from
the Guru Holy Soul called Atman
it's the Son called Brahman reflecting
in atomic flame the Father
Parabrahman Ultimate
Reality still silent holey
pure clear point of timeless pointless
nameless empty everything.


the end

yin and yang

it’s not what you think it is.

it's all about truth or consequences.

if love is bringing you down, it ain't love.

just don't buy the hype.

there's no why in all this yin and yang.

maya has the tombstone blues.

thought is not personal.

happiness only happens but bliss is.

if it can be worded, it's not worth the words.

out of what appears to be nothing, everything appears.



sermon on the wetlands

stopped and listened for ten minutes on the picnic table out back tonight to the peepers giving their sermon on the wetlands.
No guru, no method, no teacher / Just you & I & nature / And the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost / In the garden / Wet with rain. ~VM
don't overthink it; in fact, don't think it at all: that is just this
The atmosphere is not a perfume, it has no taste of the distillation, it is odorless, It is for my mouth forever, I am in love with it, …

...I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, I am mad for it to be in contact with me. ~WW
remember: these holy words are just a thorn to rid you of the thorn; drop them as soon as you can

all these words about enlightenment, awakening, jnana, consciousness, christ, or whatever don't mean a thing if it don't have that swing
Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream / It is not dying, it is not dying...

...Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void It is shining, it is shining..

...Yet you may see the meaning of within. It is being, it is being...

...Love is all and love is everyone. / It is knowing, it is knowing...

it’s helpful to understand that what we think as deep sleep and what we think as being awake are actually close to the opposite of what is

think about it: what you think as being awake needs deep sleep, but what you think as deep sleep needs nothing

while we're at it, remember that reality is a multi-faceted and multi-dimensional jewel: it shines on in untold unknown ways. just feel it.

it’s also helpful to access that feeling of deep sleep while thinking you’re awake; first thing in the morning, as you feel it’s still there

it’s also helpful to understand the everyday and oh-so-obvious “fact” you’re awake and functioning is just a concept; you only think it’s so

there are so many words out there, & some are holy useful. but please remember words are merely words: you are that experience beyond words.
