Come meander with me on the pathless path of the Heart
in these anecdotal,
sometimes inspiring, sometimes personal meanderings of the Heart's opening in the every-day-ness of Life...

Resting in the Depths...

"…make the final leap into awareness
without the slightest basis for determining
what is spiritual or not -
this bare state with no reference point
is beyond the cage of philosophy.

…rest in infinite evenness –
…experience the true nature of
phenomena, as their equalness.

There are no gods to worship,
no demons to exorcise,
nothing to cultivate in meditation.
This is the completely ordinary state.

With the single state of evenness
there is openness,
a relaxed and unstructured openness.

How delightful -
things are timelessly
ensured without having to be done,
and being free of effort
and achievement,
you are


"Silence is the deepest teaching.
It gives you access to the deeper
dimension of Being..."


"Go within yourself
and probe the depths
from which your life springs,
and there at its source
you’ll find
the answer..."

Rainer Maria Rilke
A Year With Rilke

Enter deeply into the depths of Being.
Allow yourself to sink more fully,
more completely into Being ~
into intimacy with
internal Stillness…

Allow your body and mind
to experience
the Fullness,
the Spaciousness,
the Presence,
the Knowingness,
the Awareness
of Silence…

Go into the very core
of Being ~
the all encompassing,
all embracing
Rest of Being…

Mystic Meandering
Meditative writings


  1. "being free of effort and achievement, you are
    content"...that sounds so good, doesn't it? free...content... "Allow yourself to sink more fully"...yes, yes... :o) ((HUGS))

  2. a wonderful collection of nudges to live in the here and now, quietly, with awareness. The Rilke quote is particularly nice.

  3. oh my, your landscape is waking up. gorgeous.

    lovely quotes. esp love the idea that we need do nothing, and all things will unfold of their own volition. very Tao.

    1. Thank you Suki :) Yes, very freeing too - just relaxing into the depths of Being :)

  4. Lovely..... Ya gotta love those dzogchen teachings! I love Longchenpas' "Old Man Basking in the Sun". However, he really should have titled the book, "Old Squirrel Basking in the Sun".. now that's the epitome of non-effort!

    1. Thank you Squirrel Lady :) I have not heard of that book, but will check it out.
