Not Toward Not Away

Most Lovingly Intimate

All is Welcome Here

Living in Love beyond Beliefs

Buddha from Indonesia

The silence sings. It is musical. I remember a night when it was audible. I heard the unspeakable.

*Henry David Thoreau

Of course, at times I sense a profound aloneness, but then I realize spontaneously that is mainly based on the idea of lack. Most of the time, there is a profound realization of having moved beyond needing others to resonate with to be content within myself. Not moving toward or away from others - just Being effortless being. Aloofness, which is intimate with the absolute and relative of this Moment. Seems a contradiction to my mind: such apartness, but such non-personal, non-particular intimacy that is most lovingly intimate for being non-personal, non-particular - before and beyond sensations of closeness but not devoid of being the Space that invites the shifts of sensation.
