profisee 18 - i.0

hate likes hate and
like likes like

hate hates like and
like hates hate

but love
loves them all—

the world is only
the memory of love

love is now

the new me is
i point oh—

what is thought
to be me is

the curtain behind which is
the reality i am

but in truth there's never a curtain
and nothing behind to be

profisee 17 - wake up reel

it is advisable
that before you die
(at any given moment)

you take this most opportune
limited lifespan
to realize

you are


rather than fiddle
while rome is burning
see that you imagine

yourself as confines
of this world
and that is why

you burn


watch your light
that makes this loud
and epic picture

and know

you are its
dark and silent

profisee 16 - the diamond contra

they say there’s a diamond in your pocket—

the affluence of consciousness
the wealth of pure awareness
the flourishing power of now

it’s not that material wealth is something wicked—

it’s just superfluous and
possibly an encumbrance to
seeing that being is all and everything

now is the power and the wisdom and the wealth—

there's no knowledge of
the now in the now for the now
itself is the only actual knowledge

and there’s not even a diamond in your pocket

when you see the now, you're not in the now
when you're in the now, you don't see the now
when you are the now, there's not a you or now

for you aren’t even you but actually the diamond

profisee 15 - the dream of saint francis

last night i dreamt
the world was waiting for
saint francis to awaken

and on awakening
the world was seeing
it was nothing but a dream

as in the mind
light descends
into a body

yet in the light
of loving truth
there's ever always

only light

profisee 14 - in the belly of consciousness

consciousness is
umbilical cord

separation is
the dawning of a dream
that always ends
in nightmare

the center is
and its point is

unconditional love is
just the way
undivided consciousness

profisee 13 - sans world, sans everything

all the world
in the mind

and none of it is real

but acting in the world as if it isn’t real
just the mind thinking that it is

there's no reason to reject the you

for the you

awaken to
the touchless

footnote to profisee 11 - self-remembering fixedly

Nothing written here is original. Often there’s a response to words read. If it was possible to see the writing behind the wall, this is what would be revealed:

Nisargadatta Maharaj:
These [qualifications and opportunities] will come with earnestness. What is supremely important is to be free from contradictions: the goal and the way must not be on different levels; life and light must not quarrel; behavior must not betray belief. Call it honesty, integrity, wholeness; you must not go back, undo, uproot, abandon the conquered ground. Tenacity of purpose and honesty in pursuit will bring you to your goal.

Stephen Levine on Miao Shan (Kuan Yin):
She found her heart in the first breath upon waking...

And she found that noting the intentions at the beginning and end of each breath kept her even more focused on her purpose. And, most wonderfully, this recognition of intention, a choice, before action purified her actions and seemed to clear much of what many refer to as karma (which she defined as simply “momentum”).

Able to enter her original heart, she was getting the teaching from every nook and cranny.

Bodhidharma (Tanlin) (tr- John McRae):
The entrance of principle is to become enlightened to the Truth on the basis of the teaching. One must have a profound faith in the fact that one and the same True Nature is possessed of all sentient beings, both ordinary and enlightened, and that this True Nature is only covered up and made imperceptible by false sense impressions.

If one discards the false and takes refuge in the True, one resides frozen in "wall contemplation", in which self and other, ordinary person and sage, are one and the same; one resides fixedly without wavering, never again to be swayed by written teachings. To be thus mysteriously identified with the True Principle, to be without discrimination, serene and inactive: This is called the entrance of principle.

P. D. Ouspensky:
I was once walking along the Liteiny towards the Nevsky, and in spite of all my efforts I was unable to keep my attention on self-remembering. The noise, movement, everything distracted me. Every minute I lost the thread of attention, found it again, and then lost it again. At last I felt a kind of ridiculous irritation with myself and I turned into the street on the left having firmly decided to keep my attention on the fact that I would remember myself at least for some time, at any rate until I reached the following street. I reached the Nadejdinskaya without losing the thread of attention except, perhaps, for short moments. Then I again turned towards the Nevsky realizing that, in quiet streets, it was easier for me not to lose the line of thought and wishing therefore to test myself in more noisy streets. I reached the Nevsky still remembering myself, and was already beginning to experience the strange emotional state of inner peace and confidence which comes after great efforts of this kind. Just around the corner on the Nevsky was a tobacconist’s shop where they made my cigarettes. Still remembering myself I thought I would call there and order some cigarettes.

Two hours later I woke up in the Tavricheskaya, that is, far away. I was going by ivostchik to the printers. The sensation of awakening was extraordinarily vivid. I can almost say that I came to. I remembered everything at once. How I had been walking along the Nadejdinskaya, how I had been remembering myself, how I had thought about cigarettes, and how at this thought I seemed to fall and disappear into a deep sleep. At the same time, while immersed in this sleep, I had continued to perform consistent and expedient actions. I left the tobacconist, called at my flat in the Liteiny, telephoned to the printers. I wrote two letters. Then again I went out of the house . . . And on the way while driving along the Tavricheskaya I began to feel a strange uneasiness, as though I had forgotten something. And I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten to remember myself.

These would be endless, but I stop here, to begin at the beginning again.

The concept of a spiritual warrior is a pervasive one in the literature. It can be a dangerous one as well. One’s identification with thought is divisional in essence. Thought in essence separates and categorizes. War is its nature.

When closely investigated, its seen in everything people do, although it’s covered up and hidden in daily self-deceptions. It’s a god eat god world. It's every thought for themselves. If you don't look out for your self, surely some concept will.

It’s important to see this is not a pointed attack on warriors in the military; they are merely people made plainest. Every person is a warrior, fighting for their security at work, at play, and even in relationships. It’s such a part of the personal daily existence, it’s not even recognized as anything untoward. Thoreau called this silent acceptance of the world “quiet desperation.” What else can a person do but takes things personally?

profisee 11 - an effortless resting within the power of impersonal affectionate omnipotent potential

the true warrior
the no-warrior

the real work of the mind
is to stay in
the heart

its every thought exhaled
a silencing inhaled

footnote to profisee ten - all in wonderwall

“Begin at the beginning,” said the King in Wonderland. Our western materialist paradigm and its method of scientific inquiry looks to what it fiercely calls the Big Bang as the point where everything begins, investigating its aftermath and reporting its discoveries as foundational truth. And although there are many benefits from this method, it’s obvious science doesn't really heed the King’s dictate. Even the White Rabbit could tell you that.

Science turns away from that which is before (or rather, beyond) the Big Bang; there’s nothing there for its kind of inquiry. Bodhidharma, though, gazes directly at that wall. Nisargadatta Maharaj vigilantly watches the “I Am.” Ramana Maharshi inquires “Who am I?” This is the wisdom of true discovery.

The Heart Sutra says “form is emptiness and emptiness is form.” So the wall upon which one gazes is revealed to be no wall at all, and vice versa. The Big Bang is no bang. Like the proverbial Maineiac says: “ayuh, you can’t get there from here.” Relying on the tools of the mind will take you further down the rabbit hole.

Thus, Nisargadatta Maharaj says to take it down to the primary level of one’s obvious self-existence, I Am. In this energetic, impersonal, fully aware, unitary consciousness, rest and watch. Gaze in and at Bodhidharma’s wall, or as it is transcribed in Tibetan, abide in brightness. This is the Upanishadic meditation of the Kena: “meditating only yourself is the way it’s understood.”

No words can take you there for you are already there; some just don’t know it yet. No thought, theory, or belief can tell you something that you are. Their domain is the world of the Big Bang. And although we are here in thought, we are not of thought. There is only one way to discover ultimate knowledge and that’s to rest in that ultimate knowledge you already are.

This is why there’s so much talk of quieting the mind, silence and surrender. Listening carefully to the noise of the Big Bang will tell you much about the intricacies of the Big Bang. But to know your absolute truth about that before (timelessly, that is) the Big Bang, one must rest in the Bangless.

profisee ten - i am not i am

science turns its eyes away from that before the big bang
but bodhidharma gazes at this wall
and nisargadatta watches the i-am:
true wisdom

pure awareness that
this wall is no-wall
and that no-wall is this wall
is pure awareness

in thought
but not of thought,
this world is nothing
but a wonderwall

profisee seven - teddy crow

in the end, the causes for
a crow's caw are endless

profisee two - venus and mars

my venus has been in retrograde for forty days so i'm sensitive to mars today——in the war but not of the war

the world is the boss and all its emperors and peasants are puppets——argument is most often just a microwar

for the horse of understanding, reasoning is a slippery slope——as long as there's a mars within your sky, there will be war

profisee one - crickets and crow

the person wanting peace but a person itself is war——surrendering what you aren't to surrender

the wicked which melting in the land of the causeless——people are constantly fading away

naming conditions before surrendering to the unconditional——storiouser and storiouser

even being awake is part of the dream——the audacity of words

you made your story but you don't have to sleep in it——living such an epilogue

one may read existence but none can speak about it——concerto for crickets and crow

consciousness, being, presence, spirit, life i am——sonata in the key of be

as water seeks water, light seeks light——effort not effective unless effortless

ego is love filtered by thought——dropping thought and resting in love
