Your Friday morning ZEN…..

People have been conditioned to believe that Zen Masters……or any sort of Buddhist, Hindi or Sufi Master/Guru…..mystic………must be a hermit, meditating in a cave or temple……well away from the RAT RACE…….

People can only use ANALOG notions when they do not have first-hand experience……an Analog is a “closest-fit” association……sometimes the association is closely associated……many times it is not.

People truly believe its beyond their power to become a GURU…..a Master……an enlightened human being…….people beLIEve peace of mind…..is well, well beyond them…….reserved for little, old Asian men that sit for long periods of time in caves and temples………<—–that is what they MUST look and act like…….right?

Nothing could be farther from the TRUTH……

Everything in your LIFE is the WAY towards TRUTH……your children, your spouse, your shit-ass boss, your job, your challenges, your desires……your everything……..REAL LIFE is the path……..AND…..the more you run away from IT, the more you die……the more irrelevant you become.

IT is not there……not in a church, preacher or book…….not in an institution…..or temple…..or cave…….its not in the country or in the city……..IT IS ALWAYS……..center-of-center……within YOU……ALWAYS…….and the more you think you have to step a foot away to receive it…….the more you FALL, fall, fall away……

The KEY to everything…..to the KINGDOM……is realizing the PATHWAY is everyday……..its in the mundane…..its in our relationships…….its in EVERY SINGLE BREAKING MOMENT……it is here NOW………and you don’t have to GO anywhere to GET IT……you already have it, you just don’t realize IT…….

Every day…..every moment is PRACTICE…..is TRAINING…..every interaction is an opportunity to SEE the LIGHT OF DAY……its NOT WISE to let these moments waste away…….

There is NOTHING MORE ESSENTIAL to mankind at this point in space-time……than your own personal transformation…….I would say redemption……yet that’s just silly…….what’s to redeem? We are GRACE incarnate……we are divine, powerful, COMPASSIONATE AND WHOLE….already……we just don’t recognize it…..

“Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you . For there is nothing hidden which will not become manifest.”

“Split a piece of wood, and I am there. Lift up the stone, and you will find me there.”

“I took my place in the midst of the world, and I appeared to them in flesh. I found all of them intoxicated; I found none of them thirsty. And my soul became afflicted for the sons of men, because they are blind in their hearts and do not have sight; for empty they came into the world, and empty too they seek to leave the world. But for the moment they are intoxicated. When they shake off their wine, then they will repent.”

“You read the face of the sky and of the earth, but you have not recognized the one who is before you, and you do not know how to read this moment.”

“Are you looking for me?
I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
you will not find me in the stupas,
not in Indian shrine rooms,
nor in synagogues,
nor in cathedrals:
not in masses,
nor kirtans,
not in legs winding around your own neck,
nor in eating nothing but vegetables.
When you really look for me,
you will see me instantly —
you will find me in the tiniest house of time.
Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God?
He is the breath inside the breath.”

Center of Centers…….IRREDUCIBLE…..metaphor……..LIGHT, LOVE, LIBERTY……Radiate & SHINE.

Love is the Law, Love under Will.
