dear friends.....the dalai lama is one of my favorites.....his simple, clear thoughts
inspired the following words....^^~~~~~
further up and further in,
the arms of god
It is often said that you should make a thorough examination of your potential guru,
even if it takes twelve years.
-His Holiness the Dalai Lama
i have sat in darkness at the feet of my gangani,
the sound of her voice is sweeter than the singing of eternity itself
her song is the wind beneath gods favorite black swans beating wings
i have stood in the rippling golden gaze of my mentor
the holy fire in her blazing gaze is deeper than immortality itself
her dancing eyes are gods favorite dark dervish whirling and leaping
i have been touched by the hands of my teacher
the transmission of her divine love is more soothing than liquid gold
her lost innocence found is gods secret treasure hidden within gentle
i have received the kiss of holy fire of my mistress
the breath of life on her timeless lips comes from beyond infinity itself
her love is gods love as it is never itself as it is always arising
higher and higher
i have slept in the darkness with my beloved
her true dream within the beautiful dreaming comes from the godhead itself
her vision is gods vision of ancient creation ever lurching into a new
my gangani, my mentor, my teacher, my mistress, my beloved, she is the one
hovering beyond what lies beneath hovering within what lies beyond.
I sit, I stand, I touch, I receive, I awake
I am in my Beloved and my Beloved is in me
I rest within the arms of God and the arms of God encircle Me

where ya going to be when the projector gets turn off?
there's a deer in the headlights! get 'im!
you're such a brat!
spank the inner child!
mommy will put a band-aid on it and kiss it for you!
life does not care what you belive in, who you are, where you think
you are going, who your gods are, what turns you on - or off, how
tall you are, how pretty you are, how smart you are, how many books
you have read, how many times - or how long - you go into samadhi,
etc. etc. etc.
life is the 'Energizer Bunny' it just keeps going an going and going
and giving and giving and giving.
one fine day your batteries will be removed and given to somebody
god, invisible, in heaven is watching everything you do...
god, all powerful, has rules that you must obey...
break, just one rule, and god will sent you to a place of suffering
for all of forever - man! this sucks!
BUT - it's ok - because, god, all merciful, LOVES you! (sheesh)
what do you mean i'm not enlightened?!
can't you see all of the angels and cherubs and gods and goddesses
circling around my head?!
can't you see all of the demons and wild monkeys flying out of my
dern fools! there is only so much enlightenment available in the
universe. first come first served! so get the fuck outta my way!
HAHAHAH and HOHOHO!
