Radiance Sutra 38

The time has come to turn your heart into a temple of fire. ~Rumi

Cast aside the ten thousand things,
And love only one.
Don’t go on to another.

Engage your lively awareness
With this one focus–
One object, one thought, one symbol.
Now go inside.
Find the center,
The soul, the heart.

Right here,
In the middle of the feeling,
Attend the blossoming–
Attention vast as the sky.


Generally just Being. Nothing in particular, no claims to fame. I like gardening and the sea, nature, art in all forms from poetry to films and everything in between, and being in the company of my family.

I have no wishes for anything because I am everything, everywhere, every time, always in equilibrium. I am indeed, That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva, love and pure consciousness.''
