The Nearness of Now. The Imminent Membrane of Reality...The Value of a Soul...again

Touching the Ineffable with our hearts, is what we want to do, i think.

Coming up

upon the glistening red

smear of roadkill pushes me next to that divine edge.

Treat your Senses well.

Your Interface Your Plug-In with one last chance to live an everyday life of grace and love.
Let your brain awaken to its presence on the
razor's edge surf of Divinity.
Humility is a Secret path.

The Crucified USA, REDUX

Kings of Leon       

If I could play guitar like this, i would quit my day job for sure.
SEE what i mean LISTEN: HERE


You fault my pride Don't ever need to 'pologize As your lips unfold Shaken purple from the cold
You better learn to crawl You better learn to crawl Before I walk away Before I walk away
You broke my mouth The bloody bits are spitting out Is your grave unscathed The worm is counting down the days He wants to see you crawl  He wants to see you crawl Before I walk away Before I walk away

The reds and the whites and abused
The crucified USA
As their hypocrisy unfolds
Oh hell is truly on its way
As the rat, and the fly They're searching for an alibi
As we await the wrath They never went to Sunday Mass
They want to see us crawl They want to see us crawl
Before they walk away Before they walk away
The reds and the whites and abused The crucified USA
As their hypocrisy unfolds Oh hell is truly on its way

Elephant Family's Love and Heartache; Sweetest Elephants, filled with the Divine


This video below of an elephant family trying to help a baby that had been hit by a car is deeply moving, and painful to the heart beyond all words.
There are so many videos of elephants that show us their beauty, intelligence, deep emotional lives.

I put this video here to document the love shown by animals. 
Elephants manifest many human and divine qualities.
But, i am almost unable to watch this video. It is heartbreaking and the rest of my day will be heavily impacted.
This is the sort of thing that just has me praying for the day when the Lion will lie down with the Lamb...
(I am trying to warn you.) There are less painful links below about elephants.

A motorist driving with excessive speed and crashes with a baby elephant.The Elephant family is trying to help the small elephant. But because no help is more than the little elephant had broken legs and the back.
 The little Darling had to be shot to redeem him from the pain.
Please we humans need to protect the animals and there is no way for road races, etc.

nothing is hidden

There is a Sufi tale of a master who had three disciples. He gave each of them a chicken and told them to go and kill it where no one could see them.

 Two of the disciples came back fairly quickly with a dead chicken. The third did not come back for a long time and when he returned he still had the live chicken in his hands. The master asked him what had happened.
 The disciple answered. “I could not do it master. Everywhere I went the chicken could see.”

Here is the chicken god sees.

Here, the person holding the chicken god sees.

Here, the world of the chicken and the person god sees.

Here, the driving universe in which exists

                            The world of the man

                                        And the world of the chicken

God sees.

Here are the ten thousand magnanimous universes

God sees,

and In one world of one universe

                         of the ten thousand universes

God sees a chicken held by a man.

That man looks for a place he will not be seen

He searches closets, woods, voids,

corners and cul-de-sacs

For a place to kill this chicken.

And he fails. he knows he is seen;

For his heart,

                          Is also his womb,

                                        Is also his soul.

Here is where life bursts forth;

                                         Where all and everything arise;

Wherein this god is born, this god resides, travels, sees,

And dies.

things aren't always as they seem!

In Berlin, after World War II, money was short, supplies were tight, and it seemed like everyone was hungry. At that time, people were telling the tale of a young woman who saw a blind man picking his way through a crowd. The two started to talk. The man asked her for a favor: could she deliver the letter to the address on the envelope? Well, it was on her way home, so she agreed. 

She started out to deliver the message, when she turned around to see if there was anything else the blind man needed. But she spotted him hurrying through the crowd without his smoked glasses or white cane. She went to the police, who raided the address on the envelope, where they found heaps of human flesh for sale. 

And what was in the envelope? "This is the last one I am sending you today.
