Graceful Presence



...an excerpt from the post by Meredith and Akilesh, at Graceful Presence,

Exposure, going deeper ... 9/17

"With the leap into the here-now, into choiceless awareness,
we realize we already are love and radiating love,
we already are wakefulness and radiating wakefulness,
we already are harmonized spirit and matter,
and we radiate it,
we already are being, already are saturated in bliss,
already are this naked consciousness.

This! Only just this... this wakefulness radiating,
and it is this naked wakefulness that is transformative.
Being this radiance- that-is- awake,
that asks for nothing and doesn't want to change anything,
is the most transformative energy in the universe.

When we realize it, when we step out of the way
and let it express through us as it will,
we radiate - love, grace, freedom, authenticity, godliness;
we radiate the harmony of spirit and matter.
Exposure to this radiance may spark its emergence in another,
may inspire another to open her eyes and see the light shining there within her."

Where do you come across all this beautiful poetry? It's lovely.

Have you ever tried writing poetry yourself? Your sensibilities are quite refined. I think you would do quite a good job.

Kuan, this is weird. I left that comment when my profile name was Iris. Now it says it is anonymous :)

I think u lost some of the comments and your own replies to them when you switched to the new blogger.

Back then u said "there is a lot of presence in those blogs ;)"... :)

And yes, "the now" is what i meant.
Thank you!
