This Body Temple (Enlightening Fitness)

Of all creative pursuits, and all meditative efforts, it has been the transformation of my body - more specifically, the mind/body link, which has completely revitalized the life landscape for me. I have been involved with fitness and meditation as two separate disciplines, until November of 2009.

After countless hours of forced silence and stillness, coupled with mindless repetitions of standardized exercise movements, I was finally guided to and began to discover…

The Rapids

finally, I am made aware
of the river's intention

to go down
into the lowest places on earth
to be brought up again
into the clouds

so I flow
I surrender

finally made aware
that I am comprised of water

the OTHER?

Who breathes through me?
What arouses the pines to whisper,
the ocean to roar,
the multitude of massive Suns
suspended in the the vast, measureless black space beyond?

I ask myself,
"Who am I?"

I am talking to myself.

I ask the pines, the sea, the sky,
and the measureless black space beyond,
"Who are You?"

I am talking to myself.

Now it is time to listen.

True Love?

Instead of roaming the earth as if it were a dried riverbed,

we are called to BE the river's source -

In each one of us, the spark of Cosmic flame -

In each one of us, this Love is identical -

Pure, Perfect.

Pure Love is generated and reflected -

To create and experience this Pure Love, is the only reason we are here -

And it is not from some far off distant place and time -

This moment - This space - This very body - the Lotus Paradise… Continue

Risking is Living - Haiku

The seed shell cracks -
A tender sprout breaks pavement -


An Alertness and Vitality which can only emerge
in the presence of great Danger -

Well, Mr. Zen...que pasa?

it occurs to me that either of those is a solemn and holy moment...maybe one of held breath.

Wow, I have to think about that one...perhaps you are right. I am the consciousness that observes it all? Or, is the consciousness the all that is of the experience? I am having a hard time assimilating myself as the car...I am not the road but the journey. How old do you feel when you do not think of your number?

Well-said...you Understand. Was at a Woodstock party last night. Putting on the clothes threw me right back into who I really am underneath it all. Why I still feel like a teen sometimes inside. Easy to focus on peace & love. Driving that sports car can be more of a challenge; but I liked the analogy--even though it often makes me car-sick!

I have been practicing being in the moment...and getting so good at it, it is hard to expand the consciousness...or is focused micro-level expanding too?

Oh, yes...I know about Esalen. And the incredible Big Sur. But naked bodies...hmmm...definitely provocative.

What's in Big Sur for you, Mr. ZM?
