Desert-ed

June 18, 2012

Growing up Mormon, I was told to follow the Spirit, to go towards those little inklings and ideas that make you smile inside and feel alive. Where the “still small voice” leads you can be uncomfortable but I’ve found comfort can be overrated. I was also taught a lot of other stuff that I haven’t found as useful so I left it behind. For better or worse, I’ve tried to find my way by paying attention to the subtle nudges. Maybe I just watched Field of Dreams too much when I was a kid.

It’s easy to find excuses or reasons not to listen but, “Go To The Desert” has been loud enough for long enough.

So I went.

I hear people say there’s “nothing” in the desert. I always seem to find “things” there. And I find I can learn more and even unlearn more there than anywhere else.

Into the House Range for the weekend with a book of simple truths,

a watermelon,

and an open mind.

"The greatest miracle is experiencing yourself prior to any words, thoughts or mental labels and images."

"Everything- a bird, a tree, even a simple stone is unknowable."

"Heaven is not a place, but the inner realm."

"A glimpse is enough to initiate the awakening process."

"The ego is destined to dissolve and all it's ossified structures."

"Beware knowledge, ideologies and belief systems identified with to enhance the false sense of self."

"Words reduce reality to something the mind can grasp, which isn't very much."

"Still and alert perception of in dwelling"

peace in nature

Nice to find ones self by getting lost in the desert. Thanks to Eckhart Tolle for the timely messages.
