      Jan Barendrecht:


      practice this or that
      out of the magician's hat
      on a furry mat
      it gives a bad cough
      All this fuzzy ego stuff
      reading it is tough
      mind is like a whimsy goat
      right and wrong no antidote
      concepts are like sinking boat

      All this funny stuff
      ego self ouch what a cough
      concepts taking off
      dear water droplet
      leave that stuff for what it is
      ocean is your home
      take walk to the coast
      and enjoy an outdoor toast
      life itself serves as the host
      and with devotion
      ride the waves of the ocean
      life is water in motion

      *More on water*

      today at the beach
      surf roars droplets in the sky
      all i see is me

      droplets see me not
      surf roars eyes shut open up
      droplets pass that cup

      but with open eyes
      drop sees ocean in each drop
      ocean e- motions



      dear brothers and sisters

      ...white wolfe apologizes for being slow in this up-date...he has been offline for
      about 30 hours...beloved christiana is
      recuperating slowly and will probably return to us by the end of the week...she sends
      gratitude to all for the love and support
      but would prefer to be allowed an opportunity to rest after the battery of tests that
      have been run...she is apparently suffering
      from and being treated for a-typical pneumonia....her condition is serious but not

      further up and further in,

      white wolfe


      Dear Christiana,

      Please know that you are being embraced by the light in my deepest Heart. All
      is truly well.

      With Grace and Love,


      Forwarded from the Mahamudra list by Gloria Lee:

      last Tilopa....

      "You need not expend great effort
      nor store up extensive spiritual power.
      Remain in the flow of sheer awareness.
      Mahamudra neither accepts nor rejects
      any current of energy, internal or external.

      Since the ground of consciousness
      is never born into any realm of being,
      nothing can add to or subtract from it.
      Nothing can obstruct it or stain it.
      When awareness rests here,
      the appearance of division and conflict
      disappears into original reality.
      The twin emotions of anxiety and arrogance
      vanish into the void from which they came.

      Supreme knowing knows
      no separate subject or object.
      Supreme action acts resourcefully
      without any array of instruments.
      Supreme attainment attains the goal
      without past, future or present.

      The dedicated practitioner
      experiences the spiritual way
      as a turbulent mountain stream,
      tumbling dangerously among boulders.
      When maturity is reached,
      the river flows smoothly and patiently
      with the powerful sweep of the Ganges.
      Emptying into the ocean of Mahamudra,
      the water becomes ever-expanding light
      that pours into the Clear Light-
      without direction, destination,
      division, distinction or description.



      Dan Berkow (who else?):

      This is a statement.
      This is a statement that
      is not.

      The statement that is empty
      is not an empty statement.
      The full statement is empty.
      The empty statement is full.

      The aware statement is aware.
      The unaware statement is aware.
      The unaware is aware.
      The aware is unaware.
      Neither aware nor unaware,
      neither full nor empty,
      this statement is.

      This statement that is,
      is not a statement.

      This statement is Buddhism.
      That statement is not Buddhism.
      Now, this statement isn't Buddhism
      nor something else.

      My statement is this.
      That statement is yours.
      Your statement is this.

      These statements are in order.
      Those statements aren't.
      Those statements are these.

      This statement is reading itself.
      That statement isn't reading anything.
      Now, this statement isn't being read.

      This statement is.
      The other statement is not.
      Now, this statement is not.

      This is true.
      That is false.
      That is this.

      This is a nondual statement.
      That is a dualistic statement.
      Now, this statement is neither
      dual nor nondual.

      That statement is.
      This statement isn't.

      I am neither nothing
      nor everything
      nor a particular thing.

      I am not not-nothing.
      I am not not-everything.

      I am this thing not.
