Word or World?

When there is a word
there is a world

No words, no world

When there is the I
there is a world:
the I experiencing the world

No I, no world

The world comes and goes
Everything that comes and goes
is not real

What is real, is what doesn’t come or go
What is it that doesn’t come or go?

When you have found the answer in you
you have found You …

Space

Where there is space, there is love. No space, no love. Where there is freedom, there is love: freedom from all conditioning, old mind patterns, beliefs in whatever words or authority. Are you willing to investigate ALL beliefs? Are you willing to investigate ALL stories you have about other persons, situations, objects? Without the willingness to shine the brightest light on the conditioning in you, what you call “freedom” , is the prison of your conditioning. You may think you are free. That freedom is limited by the four walls of the conditioning: the wall of what you learned, the wall of what you heard, the wall of what you saw and the wall of what you believe. Yes, you can paint the wall of the prison and make the prison more comfortable. You can make the prison so cozy that there is no reason what so ever to see that there is a prison. The prison is now hidden behind all things that give you pleasure: new furniture, a better job, more money, beautiful vacations, nice cloths, movies.

When willingness comes and ‘awakening’ begins, there is a wave going through you. It then may seem as if a veil has been lifted and you see, or rather feel what was present, all the time, deep in you. Then you know that what you did was not who you are. You knew that joy could not be found in better, faster, higher, further. That passes: better is relative, just like further, faster and higher. There is always someone who beats what you did or what you have, after a short period. When willingness has come and you see clearly that you are actually within the walls of the prison of your conditioning, the walls will start falling. There will be wholes and cracks. Bricks will fall down.  And through the holes, you will start to see that there is a world outside the walls of the prison. The wind comes in, the sun and rain. You feel the warmth and the cold. And it feels a little bit strange. The space outside is so vast, that it frightens and attracts you immensly at the same time. The space in you and in the prison connect with the space outside and you notice, deep in you, that you are that space, that vastness. How can you be anything else than space?

Investigating your conditioned mind, with all the openess there is asking you every question, is a sign that willingness has come to you. She shows you, so full of love, softly and full of compassion,, that walls that are built, can crumble down. Willingness comes to you when the time has come. And that time is always: now …

Learning

How can you not do
what you are doing
in this moment?

How could you not do
what you did
in the past?

How did you learn
of what you did
in the past?

How does what you did
in the past
shape your future?

We do what we do. We fall and stand up and will probably do it differently the next time. Falling down is not bad and getting up is not good. Falling is falling and getting up is getting up. Falling can only exist because of getting up. Getting up only exists because of falling down.

You can not do only the getting up because then falling down would not exist. The one is there and the other is there. That is called: duality. This is not good or bad and that is not good or bad. Both are polarities on the line that binds them together. When does falling down becomes getting up? And when does getting up becomes falling down?

Form and emptiness, love and fear, presence and absence: the one exists thanks to the other and the other exists thanks to the one. Duality is like a song; sung for the One. The One that has no opposite. In That everything exists. And That has no name …

Old and New

What a joy
that I did precisely
what I had to do
in the “Old Year”

What a joy
that you did precisely
what you had to do
in the “Old Year”

What peace
that I will do precisely
what I have to do
in the “New Year”.

What peace
that you will do precisely
what you have to do
in the “New Year”.

May joy and peace
be with you
always …

Nothing

Nothing happens to me
nothing ever happened to me
nothing will ever happen to me

All that is happening
is happening, has happened and will happen
to the body-mind mechanism
with a name, a sexe, a bankaccount, and so on

That ultimate understanding
gives peace and joy and rest …

Nothingness

Nothingness

… that it is the nothingness, born out of trust, which the horses follow …

Nothingness
always present
sometimes burried
under blinding somethingness

Emptiness
always present
sometimes burried
under deafening fullness

Born from nothingness and emptiness
you walk your way
over mountains and through valleys
to find you again
where you never left
in nothingness and emptiness …

Thank you

Thank you Östergötland

To say thank you to someone, for whatever reason, can be difficult sometimes. Saying thank you, and letting the energy of it sink deeply in you, can be an enormous event.

Thank you makes you modest and humble in the positive sense of those words. Thank you goes beyond ego. Thank you, spoken in soft and deep connection with yourself, lets openess surface. The sensation of thank you is this openess. And this openess, connection, love, truth, is what you feel in the body. And that is who you are, in essence.

You are connection, love, openess, truth. You are that Thank you. Living anything but Thank you, hurts.

Thank you trees
thank you air, sun, clouds,
thank you insects, people,
thank you animals, plants, suns,
thank you birth and death
thank you Thank you …

Guru

Naked, Guru

“Your outer Guru is just a milestone; it is your inner Guru who will walk with you to the goal, for he is the goal”.

Nisargadatta Maharaj

I write
what you already know

You read
the words that live in you
since the beginning

I didn’t come to teach you
anything

The writing and the reading
happen at the same time

The writer is the reader
The reader is the writer

Happening at the same time
in You …
