An Example of Cosmic Consciousness

First thing this morning, I gave Michelle a piece of advice: “Read the You chapter of Mystical Oneness.”

But I hadn’t read it myself in awhile.

So I did. And I was struck by it. I was struck by how I didn’t write it.

Cosmic Consciousness acting through the individual (duplex personality) is one of the most amazing gifts we can receive from our spiritual search.

I’m sure Walt Whitman wrote just as clunky as I do above, but all his great works were written by Her… just as the following was written by Her through this Wayne-thing. It still amazes me. … Read more…

Formless Awareness—Nirvikalpa Samadhi

I awoke to snow. A few moments (seconds, minutes, hours?) earlier I was in, what is often called in Sanskrit, nirvikalpa samadhi—formless awareness.

This happens about once a week now but last night’s was the most… clear. I am aware, but not of any thing. A radiant, outward flowing awareness with no destination or intention. No other. No me even.

But, upon awakening I was struck by how almost all accounts of this “state” (quotes because it lies below all experience), seem to miss a key point: Love. … Read more…

Something was wrong. Something was very wrong.

I paused the movie I was watching and looked at the actor’s eyes. His mouth had vanished.

When I looked at his mouth, his neck vanished.

My brain was going. It wasn’t working right. I’ve know for the last couple of days this was happening, but now it was affecting my vision. … Read more…

As I made my way back to Phoenix, as I sought to find a place Morrissette had told me about, as I thought about visiting my family next week, just then a tall dust devil appeared in front of me and I recognized how far from anything I was and I thought, “I’m the only person who sees you,” and She whispered:

Everything is temporary. Everything but us.

And as the whirling column faded away into nothing, I whispered back, “I see you… I see you everywhere.”

Sometimes She sings it to me. Sometimes I sing it to Her: I See You.

I guess in the end… it’s all the same.

And I Said, “Sure.”

She said, “It’s time to leave.”

And I said, “Sure.”

She said, “Turn here.”

And I said, “Sure.”

She said, “Now drive.”

And I said, “Sure.”

And I came across a Poet and he said, “I was just heading out for a walk. Would you care to walk with me?”

And I said, “Sure.” … Read more…

As I drove into town to upload some videos, I noticed a woman by the side of the dirt, desert road holding a hoe.

As I pulled up beside her, I rolled down the window and asked, “Are you the one who put up all those little wire cages around the plants I see along this road?” … Read more…

Life is hard in the desert. Water is rare, and growth is slow. So every plant has thorns to protect their precious flesh.

I stood before a tall Saguaro cactus and wondered, “Has anyone ever touched you?” … Read more…

One of the greatest benefits of spiritual awakening is that life consistently “lines up.”

Read up on practically any spiritually enlightened person and somewhere in their narrative they will say something similar—that things just work out for them.

This happens so often in my life—I am so lucky—that I am literally surprised when things don’t work out. … Read more…
