In the World, But Not of It

Understanding the freedom of being in the world, but not of it only occurs when it’s learned to live life as it happens instead of attaching to the senses…

One saying that really stays with me in my daily practice is “To be in the world, but not of it” It’s one that’s repeated throughout the day as the Conditioned Mind constantly tries to make me of the world. This is the view through the senses that the Conditioned Mind uses to form attachments to the material world. It’s not a true view, it’s a view that constantly needs to arrange life the way you think it should be by making it personal. Without attachment being of the world can not occur.

The only way to be in the world, but not of it and not be controlled by it is to understand how this control occurs. It’s a developed view through our senses that allows this control to happen. We see a world that becomes personal and it pulls us right in, but life isn’t personal, it happens even if there’s no “you” here. When it’s made personal, everything that happens happens to you, but life doesn’t do this, the Conditioned Mind does this. Nothing happens to you unless you allow it.

When you’re with life as it is it’s never personal because it’s understood nothing happens to you, it just happens. The timeless, ageless view of being in the world, but not of it only occurs in the present moment, it’s never personal though, it’s just life. Learning to have a view of simply being in the world allows for the energy to truly live life. What’s needed for this view is to see the world through an inward view, which is of the heart, instead of an outer view which is through the senses of the Conditioned Mind. When there is no longer attachment to the Conditioned Mind, it’s then that you can be in the world and not of it. This is the freedom of non attachment to a world controlled by the senses…

Harmony With Yourself

Harmony with yourself results in your ability to love others. It’s a simple decision to be made, but a self serving mind generates chaos with itself just as a mind of love is a mind that is in harmony with itself…

The simplicity of life is related to your ability to love yourself which allows you to be in harmony with your own mind. That’s why its imperative to understand not the great secrets of the Universe, but our own mind. When the mind is in harmony with itself, it’s in harmony with all that is, it’s as simple as that; the same mind creates your chaos and harmony. Which of these you are conditioned to manufacture determines the your life.

Chaos is generated by the energy of a self serving mind and doesn’t allow anything but chaos, so if chaos is what’s being created than there won’t be much harmony. What direction the mind goes in is the energy that it generates, and to that extent will be your harmony; this is harmony with our own mind because only harmony can produce harmony.

Harmony is simply your ability to love yourself. This is your hearts direction, hence it becomes the direction of your mind. When love is generated it produces much different results than when the energy generated is self serving. The results are in the form of being in harmony with yourself and thus with all beings. To love is the simplest form of life, it’s what puts us in harmony with everything. Our harmony is in our ability to love, our chaos is in the conditioning to self serve. It’s up to each individual which energy is generated and what those results produce. Simply love and harmony will be or not and life will remain a struggle, but don’t blame life because it’s our own mind that’s conditioned to go in the direction that it goes in…

Poems

Hamlet

Hamlet

Hamlet came a calling
He didn't say a lot
He was tired and cold and hungry
We gave him honey
From a pot

We breathed warm air upon him
In a kind and caring way
But it really didn't help a lot
Poor Hamlet passed away

He hadn't lost his colour
Still perfect as a pearl
We wrapped him in an autumn leaf
That had just begun to curl

We placed him in the branches
Of a tree that fateful day
In it's arms a frozen moment
Of when poor Hamlet passed away

So sad he didn't make it
But glad a chance to share
In a kindly woven moment
A moment love laid bare

Fragile 'did' for Hamlet
How fragile you and me
Everything is fragile
Beware fragility!

How beautiful was Hamlet
That humble....Bumble.... Bee


The Chalk Stream Lament

Someone broke into my heart where I rise beneath the Downs
And stole my chalk stream water and sold me to the towns
I don't know what you called me I don't think I had a name
Call me 'crystal clear spring water' I was gifted by the rain

My shining waters sounded out
With every rise and fall
In August I would whisper
In January call
Now I move quite slowly
Will I die is this my death?
I don't want to join the silent
I want to live not fight for breath

I want my life blood back again
To leap and turn and run
Sing out loud and sparkle
Flood meadows and feel the sun
Let me spill into the river
Ride the tides that come and go
Let me run my course forever
It's the only thing I know

I want those who lived within me
And those who've passed this way
And all who lived beside me
To come home, home to stay
Here with me when I was born
Long before you came
By my plunder you may reach the stars
But you'll whither just the same

So should I die don't mourn my loss
I'm home, I'm in the rain
And all in all rain has to fall
Somewhere I'll rise again.
