“You’re coming Home.
And the way home means traveling back through the dark tunnel of yourself.
It means facing up to the pain that has not been faced…
You’ll notice that you are alive underneath.
Go through it. Don’t lose heart.
Emotion does not have the power to endure.
The only thing that separates you is your unhappiness.
You’ve had to run away from it since the day you were born.
You’ve got to pass through that unhappiness.
Feel the emotion. Being is beyond feeling and yet it includes feeling.
The timeless and ever-present sense of well-being is the natural state of man.
It is the womb-consciousness.
When man rediscovers the timeless womb-consciousness
he feels the well-being as the indisputable, timeless sense of well-being.
And in the well-being consciousness of the womb
he perceives or realizes he is that timeless consciousness.”
From: Stillness is the Way
by Barry Long
“All there is is unborn Tao;
the field that gives rise
to any and all
possible conditions and content –
including this story…”
The Primordial Womb of Stillness
is the spacious Womb of Silence
in which everything exists
and has being…
It is the felt experience of Home
~ our Beingness ~
the ever-present Awareness,
our Natural State…
of all life…
It *is* Life ItSelf…
from which there is
Everything is suspended in
this Womb of Awareness
Fall back into Its Embrace…
You are Home…
