Pearls under the Full Moon

Posted on: March 22nd, 2019 by anurati2

The world is an oyster.

Pearls are growing

inside.

Let go –

and let them shine

under the full moon.

 

Almost midnight. I sink deeper.

Into a maw full of cold dark water.

Naked. There is nothing to hide.

A kiss. A soft touch. Bliss

is floating in the river

of love

under the full moon.

 

All trees, including me,

standing rooted in the snow.

A circle of eyes watching in awe

the birth in slow-motion.

Hair and leaves dance in the wind,

swaying softly back and forth, we are

spellbound

under the full moon.

 

Treetops bite like black teeth

into the violet sky.

Five furry pairs of ears listening

to the white silence.

Breath is breathing me,

surfing on the runners of the sled.

Six hearts united in relaxation.

All boundaries are gone

under the full moon.

Silence falling as snowflakes

It’s winter retreat at Dharma Mountain. Sitting quietly in my cabin, watching the white scene outside the window. Everything is soft and pure, fresh and fluffy.

Nature is quiet. Time stops.

We are invited by the Master to sink into this stillness inside, to find the treasure, the purity, the softness of our own beings. Isn’t it a miracle?

150115_NO_Sujan_004Every human being is searching for peace, for happiness, but somehow it seems we forgot where to look.

There is a story that God didn’t know where to go to not be bothered and then he decided to hide himself inside the human heart as nobody looks there. We have so many treasures inside, we are the whole universe in a nutshell, so many miracles are happening each second inside of us of which we are not aware. Isn’t that crazy?

When I take this conscious decision to stop it does not mean that this will happen in a split second. It needs patience, and clear focus. It needs understanding that this is what I want. The habit of getting lost in thoughts, dreams, plans and stories is so old. We have been practicing unconciousness, insensitivity and not being present for so long, that it takes time, clarity and strength to come back to ourselves. That’s why it is almost impossible to do it alone. That’s why a Master is needed to remind us what we are doing here, what we are longing for the most. We have forgotten our own treasure. The Master is a living proof that the most valuable gift is inside our own heart.

Outside my window I can see the snow flakes gently falling with no effort, no fuss. Like this I just close my eyes and allow the thoughts to fall gently into emptiness, disappearing without any effort.

Thank you Master.

Mindfulness at Dharma

Posted on: November 4th, 2012 by admin No Comments

Course and retreat in mindfulness, MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction) 1-4 nov

Suddenly the sun was out and we could see the mountain. Perfect after practicing sitting with our inner mountain as Jon Kabat Zinn talks about. Walking meditation in the snow, feeling, hearing, seeing – simply being alive present in the now. Coming back to our inner house, focused and receptive at the same time. Sensing.
