- It’s like climbing a mountain and sliding back down….maybe we can make it a little higher this time.
⭐️closer to the stars….
Where we have stored these visions and dreams. They are real.
I see as time passes- how tired everyone becomes. The compromises and deals that get made. Like the devil did with Jesus. The devil felt like a friend not an enemy.
I know everyone is hungry and remotely desperate. This feeling is so normal it seems it becomes the natural state. This is not natural, this is the suffering of samsara.
We should not reminisce of the good old days in Mount Shasta and pine for Bhagavan Das. We should make more stars and climb again toward the heavens where we hide.
I’ll sing you a song about how perfectly a flower grows in your heart. And it’s not like the seed isn’t there or anyone needs something more. Everyone needs something less. To strip the lie and purify. This takes effort endurance courage and will.
Strength is acquired. Devotion is the only fuel the heart runs on. The heart is the seat of courage. The heart is the abode of compassion. It’s not for you that you aspire. It’s for everyone who feels the pain and loss exactly as you do. Devotion takes cultivation. Giving to that grace only feels like a sacrifice in a world full of lies. It is the only line we’ve been thrown. Do not give up. Do not let anything stop the rising flame.
You know we all must become the perfect student and servant before we can be the perfect teacher and master. It is two sides of the same coin.
Do not be convinced it’s ok to lay at the bottom looking up and daydreaming of the past or a life yet to come. Get up and do the next right thing.
