More than anything,
Empty of any standpoint
all is already flowing
through and as you,
as the pathless path
you as the entire
loving field of gold
ruby red sparks
by the mere seeing
with your eyes
Give it your all,
surrender with devotion
of your almighty
to simply shine
on a starry night,
with light’s beauty,
Astrud Gilberto’s heavenly music signifies pure devotion to this heart, enjoy!

BE CONSCIOUSNESS awareness bliss, the Self’s expression,
Awaken to auspicious grace, receive her kiss,
Finish the folly forever of wallowing in depression.
Be consciousness awareness bliss.
Be certain now there’s no entity there left to miss;
There are no graded steps or levels in this ascension.
If you dream of some illusory gain, you’re sadly amiss.
Enjoy the nectarine bliss of your dedicated mission,
Please don’t take my words in any way remiss.
This stanza ends my runic Roundel composition.
Be consciousness awareness bliss!

Have a lovely weekend, dear friends! Love from your Maren
Forget the Past
Forget the past
It’s just a dream you keep alive by dreaming
A balloon that wants to hit the ground and burst
But which you keep afloat by thinking.
The past is only a tail
You keep dragging behind you
Collecting dust and dirt
Until it’s so heavy with bitterness and regret
It stops you moving forward.
You don’t have to sit there and watch
While the scenes of your past play back
The tragi-comedy of your life
Simmering with hurt and envy
Shuddering with embarrassment
Stabbing yourself with pangs of regret.
There is no past
There are only memories of events
And every memory is refracted through
A hall of mental mirrors
Until whatever once was true
Dissipates and disappears
Like vapour trails fading in the sky.
So cut the tail, and cut the tale
Turn the mental projector off
Don’t strain your eyes trying to see through the fog
When the panorama of the present stretches
Clear and bright around you.
