James Corrigan’s book, An Introduction To Awareness, while in the bathtub one morning:

It is interesting to note that so-called Transcendentalists–poets, essayists, and philosophers–have historically been the most minutely detailed and intimately connected observers of, and celebrants of, life; rather than the most geekish analyzers of its ‘transcendental’ structure. One thinks of a Whitman, Emerson, Thoreau, or Dickenson, not as engineers hard-pressed to reverse-engineer existence, but rather deeply contemplative and sensual individuals who wanted nothing more than to savor and celebrate the intricate flavors of, and their curiosity toward, existence. Their goal was not to “get to the bottom” of it, but to fully engage it, in contradistinction to those around them who saw themselves as separate and apart from “Nature”. http://marias-arts.blogspot.com/2011/04/active-beauty.html

Gleanings p105

Say: The first and foremost testimony establishing His truth is His own Self.
Next to this testimony is His Revelation. For whoso faileth to recognize
either the one or the other He hath established the words He hath revealed as
proof of His reality and truth.

LET BE THE REALIZATION – for Bob, Margaret & Jenny

Pause.

Let be.

Let be
the realization
that you are
life’s longing;
shaped as
a wave formed
fleetingly
upon our one infinite sea.

Let be
the open secret that
makes this light-reflected moment,
this one, here, here,
or this hiss of wind and
rustle of leaves
this child’s smile,
all that ever is, and was and shall be.

Let be
the home-coming,
the welcome stranger
who turns and shows you
with the flash of a wry smile
your true face, and now see

that all journeying was
to here,
right now – just this:

just this
the
no-form
out of which
all forms arise,

just this
the Mystery
at the centre of and
beyond all things

just this – the
stillness
beneath the hiss of the breath
breathing you, breathing me.

Let be.
