I was reading a passage from the Tao Te Ching and was reminded of a song by George Harrison, “The Inner Light”.

I listened to it again and discovered that George was probably reading the same passage and was inspired to write the song.

Tao Te Ching  (47)

translated by Stephen Mitchell

 

Without opening your door

you can open your heart to the world.

Without looking out your window

you can see the essence of the Tao.

 

The more you know

the less you understand.

 

The Master arrives without leaving,

sees the light without looking,

achieves without doing a thing.

 

The Inner Light

George Harrison

“The Beatles Past Masters Volume Two”

 

Without going out of my door

I can know all things on earth.

Without looking out of my window

I can know the ways of heaven.

 

The farther one travels

The less one knows.

The less one really knows.

 

Without going out of your door

You can know all things on earth.

Without looking out of your window

You can know the ways of heaven.

 

The farther one travels

The less one knows.

The less one really knows.

 

Arrive without traveling.

See all without looking. Do all without doing.  

Reading “Kinship With All Life” by J. Allen Boone again after many years. I am seeing it through new eyes and understanding the depth of what he is teaching about animal communication.

 It begins with his relationship with Strongheart, a German shepherd movie star, and what this noble intelligent dog taught him. …”behind every object which the senses can identify, whether the object be human, animal, tree, mountain, plant or anything else, and right where the object seems to be, is the mental and spiritual fact functioning in all its completeness and perfection. This spiritual fact cannot be recognized with ordinary human eyesight, but it is always apparent to clarified inner vision.”

 To learn how to communicate with animals requires practicing getting out of the way and suspending projections, expectations and superior/inferior conditioning. Being in a larger context of the universal consciousness and the flow of subtle images or thoughts back and forth between two beings that are part of this larger context. And to know that everything from the smallest subatomic reality to the entire universe is made of the same stuff that can be perceived through a sense beyond the 5 senses that normally compose our perceiving and being in the world. 

 It takes practice, preferably with another critter that you have formed a bond with. This is impeding me (self perceived) from continuing on because all of my dog and cat companions have passed on years ago.

 I suppose I can chose a critter at random, or be chosen by them in passing. Harder to know how accurate the passing ephemeral messages might be.  A class or a new companion with whom I have a loving bond would make this process easier.

 Love to know your own experiences about this.

There are so many mis-alignments brought on in so many ways by the old structure holding on for dear life to its power and selfishly obtained wealth. Worshiping in the temple of what no longer serves us.

I believe in the human heart as the center fire of our spiritual existence in a human body on the earth plane. That as we all breathe to live, these are our common connections around the globe. And in the peaceful centered mind in our hearts breathing in gratitude we connect with our common source, which has many names. And through this prayerfulness we can reach others in compassion and hold them safely, and guide our way to peace upon the earth in the winds of grace.

 

I believe in walking the beauty way in service to others, and singing universal songs and chants to bring all together in peace, joy, love, beauty and light.

 

 

Peace is a state of the heart that is steady when all that rushes in from the mind of the worldly pulls us and distracts us from that which is inherently ours. A connection with the Divine, the Universal, the stillness that is always available to us if we but remember – to follow the breath as it comes in and goes out. Watch the breath’s independent ebbing and flowing to connect our bodies, hearts and minds with the unlimited present. It is knowing that now between the past and future is all that is real, is expandable and accessible if we but take the time to sit, to be, to connect with Source in love and beauty in the silence. The stilled and quiet mind can manifest peace in this dimension.

Silence is a precious gift. In the silent spaces among between and within sound is the place that allows the assimilation of what is heard. The ears will over time if the decibels (energy of the sound is too intense) protect the nervous system by going deaf through the withering of cilia in the inner ear that transmit certain frequencies to the auditory nerves. Becoming mindful of the sounds around us and the sounds we make, and the effects they may have on others and ourselves is important in a world out of balance.
