No amount of

"Birdsong"via Along The WayAll this time I've been whirling
in the space between your thoughts
while you were debating what to name
this silent wildness:
He or She? I or Thou? Particle or Wave?
Come now, be a moth, a petal,
a fountain in a sunbeam.
Be the final breath.
Just dance with me,
and dissolve.~Fred LaMotte"Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see."~Carl JungYaşar Koç PhotographyMetempsychosis
Some stories last many centuries,
others only a moment.
All alter over that lifetime like beach-glass,
grow distant and more beautiful with salt.Yet even today, to look at a tree
and ask the story Who are you? is to be transformed.There is a stage in us where each being, each thing, is a mirror.Then the bees of self pour from the hive-door,
ravenous to enter the sweetness of flowering nettles and thistle.Next comes the ringing a stone or violin or empty bucket
gives off --
the immeasurable's continuous singing,
before it goes back into story and feeling.In Borneo, there are palm trees that walk on their high roots.
Slowly, with effort, they lift one leg then another.I would like to join that stilted transmigration,
to feel my own skin vertical as theirs:
an ant-road, a highway for beetles.I would like not minding, whatever travels my heart.
To follow it all the way into leaf-form, bark-furl, root-touch,
and then keep walking, unimaginably further.~from Given Sugar, Given Salt: Poems, by Jane HirshfieldJoan Tollifson writes:Someone alerted me recently to an excellent interview with Eckhart Tolle
on YouTube that I would very highly recommend. Its about 98 minutes long
starts out with a brief bit (about 15 minutes) on a park bench with ET,
his wife Kim Eng, and the interviewer (a young man)...then moves indoors to
what I assume is ETs living room for the rest of the video with just ET and
the interviewer (and a brief appearance by ET's dog)...there is very little
from the interviewer; it is mostly ET talking the whole time. The content is
excellent, and I enjoyed seeing ET in a more informal and casual way than in
his usual talks before an audience. I love ET and consider him one of the
very best contemporary teachers. He is deeply grounded in presence and
able to illuminate the workings of the egoic mind (what obscures the truth)
with tremendous clarity, and he embodies and points eloquently and simply
to the boundlessness of aware presence, the ever-present Now. This is
excellent material: http://youtu.be/KopmSpe33Eg
