Love is Guru.
Time is Guru.
Anger is Guru.
So is fear.
My children are the Guru — Guru of Gurus they are!
My parents are also Guru, in all of our closeness and non-closeness.
Energy is Guru.
Stillness is Guru.
Even exhaustion, depression, illness and pain are the Guru – powerful, life-changing Guru. The Guru that shows you what you are really made of.
Sex is Guru.
Sexual union can allow the Supreme Consciousness to flow up the spine and into the heart, if we let it. The experience of oneness will explode in the 3rd eye, for a sustained orgasmic state dissolves the illusory barrier between “you” and “them,” between “you” and the Divine, between “you” and all that is.
But we don’t need sex for that.
The Is-ness of this moment is teeming with potency, with the fruit and flavor of our conscious awareness and our unconscious awareness. The power is in our focus, the lens of the mind.
It is the subtle shift in perceptive which will allow the heart and the whole body to soften, and allow the soul to again take the wheel.
There is no separation.
The soul is “you.” The mind and its collection of thoughts, beliefs, ideas and concepts is a giant wardrobe which the soul can wear, when it chooses.
But truly, the soul needs no clothes.
No thoughts, ideas, concepts, beliefs, identities.
Only if it serves you or others, then wear these hats, these clothes.
But remember to take them off and stand naked with yourself, be the bare, raw essence of pure existence.
Caress even that duality, caress non-existence.
Know that you are also That, the nothingness.
There is no end to this infinite life.
And these precious moments ticking by, they are wild and free.
They are as malleable as our dreams.
Stand naked with your soul, and listen to the Gift.
Breathe it in, again and again, but noticing this time – the air filling your lungs – a gift.
The eyes that can see or the ears that can hear – a gift.
The ability to close the eyes and see the inner-world, what a gift indeed.
