THE PROJECT IS WITHIN US ALL

There’s more to this than you realize.

You’re part of a project that’s too vast for you to comprehend.

The impulses that guide your life

don’t come from you, but through you –

you’re a channel, not the source.

But the impulses aren’t flowing through you clearly –

you’ve let the channel become obstructed

by your self-doubt and fear.

So the force has been diluted, the message has been distorted,

and the river that should be rushing through you

is a halting, stuttering stream.

But this project is too important to interfere with.

There’s too much at stake to stand in its way –

to be distracted by your own fears and desires

to be afraid of failure or wary of success

to worry about looking foolish or loosing face

to wonder who’s watching you and what they might be thinking

and be discouraged if no one seems to be watching at all

or frustrated if they don’t seem to understand.

It’s enough to do what you’re meant to do

to express what you’re meant to express

without evaluating your effect

or considering results or reactions.

There’s too much at stake for you to become

anything less than you were meant to be,

to leave the smallest part of your potential unfulfilled

or the smallest piece of your message unsaid.

This is the time to be fearless

so that the force can flow through you freely.

This is the time to be empty

so that the source can fill you completely.

This is the time to step aside

and let the project unfold through you.

CAN YOU BE HAPPY WITH NOTHING?

Can you be happy with nothing

without looking forward to happiness

without entertainments and activities

to distract you from unhappiness

 

without projects that excite you

with their promises of success

and that make you feel you’re moving

closer and closer to happiness

 

without collecting more possessions

or climbing to a higher status

and parading your wealth and prominence

to try and convince others – and yourself –

that you’re happier than them?

 

If not, then your happiness is always on loan

secondhand and superficial

like a blanket that’s quickly pulled away

leaving you cold and empty craving more.

 

But you can be happy with nothing.

There’s a happiness that has no cause

that doesn’t come from consuming or collecting

and doesn’t deceive or disappoint or quickly fade:

the well-being pf being itself

that simply is – and is always there.

 

A deep rich glow of wholeness

a soft subtle energy whose nature is bliss

like a steady flowing river whose source is you.

A well-being you don’t need to chase, only to uncover,

that you don’t need to strive for, only allow.

WHEN SORROW WALKED WITH ME

I walked a mile with pleasure.

She chatted all the way,

But left me none the wiser

For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with sorrow,

And ne’er a word said she;

But, oh, the things i learned from her

When sorrow walked with me!
