...the beautiful dilemma

 
 

Free Falling ...

Amongst the unbroken outstretched arms of the forest,
a leaf, gracefully eddied downward,
weaving waywardly through the calm Autumn air,
to come to rest 'neath an Aspen's
smooth white bark.

Like the weathered arms of the tree
and that leaf, I too, was falling
Free . . . falling,
to reside upon, then within,
that earthen tomb
. . . and cradle
. . . to Rest.

When in great despair, suddenly from nowhere, a sparkling multi-colored
jewel-like robe was tenderly placed about me with unearthly majesty and compassion.
Thereafter following deep sincere contemplation the following occurred to me:

"Enlightenment " is not acquired ... in the sense from outside ourselves.
Although worldly experiences increase awareness, enlightenment is already complete within, & realized consciously to the degree one relinquishes detractions and distills essence from
symbology and complexity. Simply stated: All that is really needed is provided when
striving for & when within the  "higher self ". If one were to comprehend and
integrate just this, all would be resolved.

... You need but flow, not know. Knowing comes in good time.

The  "Higher-self " resides within and is a manifestation of the heart.
The Heart is as a hologram of the universe and "contains" all knowledge, things and
omnipresent. The portal to the heart is purification of desire or motive. The greater
the degree of purification, the greater the accessibility.

Though the yield be boundless when steadfast in one's endeavors to practice
Goodness and Happiness for its Own Sake, it's wise to bear in mind enduring goodness
and happiness naturally follow and flow from striving for and being in the  "Higher Self "
here and now when realizing it's never too soon nor too late.
