Ineffable Bliss

Sharing expressions... reflections... explorations... mingling.. merging.. expanding... resting... Life... LOVE... HEART... radiating... everywhere...

"When the ocean comes to you as a lover... marry at once... quickly, for God's sake! Existence has no better gift. No amount of searching will find this..." Rumi

When you feel your lips becoming infinite and sweet,
like a moon in a sky...

When you feel that spaciousness inside...

Shams of Tabriz will be there too.

Laughing Buddha

When I broke open
Buddha broke open.
And neither of us has
been the same since.

In an instant we
fell into each other laughing
and neither one of us survived.

But still the sun shines in the morning
and sets in the evening.

I am like a friendly old dog now
wearing my master's night slippers.
Yet somehow
they fit perfectly.


(for You... who always makes me laugh... and disappear...)

Needing A Mirror

is so wise,

It keeps turning, turning
Needing to touch

It keeps turning,
Needing to find a mirror

Will caress you

As I.

I have posted this poem before... but today...
it speaks to me again...
as I think of my Beloved Danny...
and the amazing blessing the Universe has bestowed on me
with our Love...


The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind that was...

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere...
They're in each other all along...

"Your true nature is that of infinite spirit...

the feeling of limitation is the work of the mind... "

~ Sri Sri Ramana Maharshi

Bowing.... to Beloved Ramana,
to the Heart centered Awe of the Infinite
and the play of the seeming limited ...!

"The Love of God, unutterable and perfect,
flows into a pure soul the way that light rushes into a transparent object.

The more Love that it finds, the more it gives itself;
so that, as we grow clear and open,
the more complete the joy of heaven is.

And the more souls who resonate together,
the greater the intensitiy of their Love,
and mirror-like, each soul reflects the other."


Dedicated to the pure soul of all beings...
for the purity of beingness is not a choice...
it is simply the Truth....

I hear nothing in my ear but your voice,
Heart has plundered mind of its eloquence.

Love writes a transparent calligraphy,
so on the empty page my soul can
read and recollect...


(for you... my Love...)

I see my beauty in you.
I become a mirror that cannot
close its eyes to your longing.

My eyes wet with yours in early light.
My mind every moment giving birth, always
conceiving, always in the ninth month,
always the come-point.
How do I stand this?

We become these words we say,
a wailing sound moving out into the air.
These thousands of worlds th
at rise from nowhere,
how does your face contain them?

I'm a fly in your honey,
then closer a moth caught in
flame's allure, then
empty sky stretched out in homage...

"The Woman I Love"
by Hafiz

Because the Woman I love lives inside of you,

As I lean as close to your body with my words
As I can...

And I think of you all the time, dear pilgrim.

Because the One I Love goes with you
Wherever you go,
Hafiz will always be near.

If you sat before me, wayfarer,
With your aura bright from your many Charms,

My lips could resist rushing to you and needing to
befriend your blushed cheek,

But my eyes can no longer hide
The wondrous fact of who
You Really are.

The Beautiful One whom I adore
Has pitched His royal tent inside of you...

So I will always lean my Heart
As close to your soul
As I can....

(to the "Man" I Love... my Vajrasattva)

Watching the moon at dawn,
solitary, mid-sky...

I knew myself completely;
no part left out....

"A hand moves, and the fire's whirling takes different shapes:
all things change when we do.

The first word, "Ah," blossoms into all others,
Each of them is true... "

(Vajrasattva & Ghantapani)

Know the true nature of your Beloved...

In His loving eyes your every thought,
Word and movement is always...

Always Beautiful.

In Love that Long...

I am here, this moment, inside the beauty,
the gift God has given,
our Love:

this gold and circular sign
means we are free of any duty:

out of eternity, I turn my face to you,
and into eternity:

we have been in Love that long.

I was away and meant to post something before I left,
but left early in a bit of a hurry, to avoid a huge snowstorm...
and instead of being snowed in here...
was happily snowed in with my beloved Danny
through his snowstorm, and the turning of the New Year.....

December 30th was beloved Ramana's Birthday,
this is the post that I meant to put up in his honor....

"Place your burden at the feet
of the Lord of the Universe
who accomplishes everything.

Remain all the time steadfast in the Heart,
in the Transcendental Absolute.
God knows the past, the present, and the future.
He will determine the future for you
and accomplish the work.

What is to be done will be done
at the proper time. Don't worry.

Abide in the Heart...
and surrender your acts to the divine."

~Sri Sri Ramana Maharshi

I wish all beings a wondrous New Year, and would like to thank all of
my blog friends for the joy that you bring to me
with your visits, your wisdom and humor and your Love...

Om Shanti... Shanti... Shanti...
