The Seeker's Journal
There are many mystics
and each has his own design:
Blake and his Albion,
Yeats and his gyres.
lifts his flower,
the rishis chant their truth.
Christ rises again
and a yogi
dissolves in rapture
We thread our way
among the labyrinths
hoping to discover
the password to
the ultimate unnamed,
that which we are seeking
and do not find,
though we sometimes
catch vague glimpses
but are never quite sure,
until love grips us
in his implacable arms
and gives us a kiss
that has no words.

A Documentary and a Book
A friend whose judgement I highly respect has just watched and now recommends the following Documentary:
"The Way of the Psychonauts"
You can google it and watch it for a small fee (about $5.00). It includes interviews with folks like Stan Grof, Rupert Sheldrake, and other spiritual adventures of recent times. These were indeed the pioneers of the spiritual awakening movement and the documentary promises to be quite interesting.
The book that I am currently reading is called "The Mind of the Cells," by Sat Prem. Though written some years ago, it is "the key to man's passage to the next species." Sat Prem was the primary disciple of 'The Mother " (Shri Aurobindo's spiritual wife) and he recorded many of her sayings and commentaries. These are cutting edge notions of what is in store for us as we literally transmute into a new form of our prior selves. It is not an easy read, but you can obtain a copy (if you wish to explore these radical ideas) from:
This edition costs under $10.00.
I am a slow reader, but the main idea I have received so far is that "man" is a transitional being, a form who will evolve into another species as time progresses. This notion requires much thought and contemplation to assimilate its meaning and ramifications. A friend and I are going to read it "together" and discuss some of the main ideas through zoom. If you have any questions you want us to consider, you are welcome to contact me and I will raise them in our zoom session.

The Fire and the Rose
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Saturday, December 19, 2020
This notice appeared on Åmazon on December 9, 2020. It is the culmination of a life time of writing poetry. Maybe if you order now you can get it before December 25.
I will post a more formal launch page soon.

What I Have Come Here to Know
It did not always arrive
Sometimes it was
just a feeling,
holding the hand
of someone you loved
or the tumultuous waves
that washed through you
when you were dissolved
totally and knew nothing
but the bliss of the invisible,
come to claim you
as its own.
I could name things:
Mozart lifting you
to a place beyond the supreme moment
your body trembling
toward a different realm,
too intense to bear––
those leaves stirring within
as they shared their joy
with me, the witness––
those sweet frequencies that rose up
from earth itself
and captured you
in Ireland's sacred places,
your heart exploding
with unquenchable desire.
And of course
there were the dark opposites:
the broken promises,
the desertions by the faithful.
All knit together now
into a single ball of truth,
a blend of everything
into a shining perception
of final reality,
how you are now mixed together
November 21, 2020
If you wish to transmute,
open yourself to change.
Le the vibrations of transmutation
flow through your being
like a gentle wind caressing a rose
that opens its mouth to rain,
a bud that waits
for the awakening sun.
Yes, you can hear without ears,
see without eyes.
These are done by the invisibles
again and again,
even without your knowing
But if you are wed
to the realm
of the senses,
you will not reach
the kingdom I describe.
You will reject its perfections
for a world more familiar,
and wonder why anyone
would desire to enter
the realm of the immutable––
you will be content to remain
where you are, perishable
as a shadow in moonlight.
You will never know
the world of
formless beyond form,
the permanent after the ephemeral,
the embrace of ultimate bliss,
union with the unseen divine.
You will never find
your cosmic lover,
trembling as the earth shudders,
shaking within as secret love enters,
all in time with the leaf that wavers
now in your chest.

The Warbler Knows
By Ivan M. Granger
(1969 - )
The warbler knows
only dawn's shaft
on her breast.
Forgetting false future
suns, she sings
in no voice
but her own.

Election Promises – by Mark Belletini
I hear the polls
are going to be open on Tuesday.
Good. I certainly intend to go to them.
I certainly invite you to go to them and vote too.
But today I say the polls
Are not just open on Tuesday.
I say they are open every day.
Every hour. Even here. Even now.
‘Right now I am going to vote
for the robin’s egg sky,
the vanilla clouds,
the purple shadow spreading
under the gingko tree,
I am going to vote for tulips and redbuds,
I am going to vote for love,
That doesn’t have to run in someone else’s circles
in order to be love.
I’m going to vote the homeless into homes.
I’m going to vote the uneducated into classrooms
that teach them in the way they learn best,
not the way that would be most convenient.
I’m going to vote the sick into healing.
I’m going to vote the lost into belonging.
I’m going to vote, right now,
for the right to dream of a world
where the word politics
doesn’t stop me in my tracks,,
And where the word honor still
has a few good meanings left.
I’m going to vote right now
for the power of free people
to actually be free,
No matter who they are,
no matter who has abandoned them,
no matter who hates them.
I actually am going to vote for love,
I am going to vote for truthfulness as the norm,
not the exception.
I’m going to vote for a world
that doesn’t vote for killing, control and swagger,
I’m going to vote for you.
I’m going to vote for me.
Right now. Right here. Silently. But for real.

You are my true self, O Lord
(788 - 820)
English version by Ivan M. Granger
You are my true self, O Lord.
My pure awareness is your consort.
My breath, my body are your handmaids.
I am your holy ground.
My every action is an offering to you.
My rest is my melting into you.
Every step I take circles you.
Every word I speak is a song for you.
Whatever work I do, that work is worship of you,
O Fountain of Bliss!

from Jeff Carreira
I’m happy to announce the publication of my latest book, American Awakening: Evolutionary Spirituality, Non-Duality and Free Thinking in the tradition of American Philosophy.
In this book, I write in detail for the first time about what I consider to be the other half of my spiritual lineage - the American philosophies of Transcendentalism and Pragmatism.
During my spiritual journey, I was deeply influenced by two traditions.
The first was the non-dual mysticism of the Hindu tradition called Advaita Vedanta and the spiritual sage Ramana Maharishi.
Along the path of awakening, I encountered the writings of Transcendentalism and Pragmatism, and I discovered an intellectual framework that accelerated my growth and clarified my thinking in many important ways.
In American Awakening I want to share the profoundly impactful ideas that I found in the American philosophical tradition.
In this book you may be surprised to find that an authentic path of non-dual awakening and conscious evolution has been developing in the United States for nearly 200 years.
In this book you will explore:
The nature of the soul as an omnipresent field of perceptual awareness that is the true source of our being.
An expanded understanding of evolution that explains how even the laws governing time, space and causality have evolved from nothing.
The true role of human perception in the creation of reality.
A vision of how human life flows through us from sources beyond ourselves.
These and many more ideas are explained and illuminated in clear, simple and precise language.
I hope you will read American Awakening and if you do please email me to tell me what you think.
You can order print copies here or a kindle version here.

An Invitation from Sally Kempton
to Join a Circle of Light
Every Tuesday from October 13th to November 3rd, at 5 PM US Pacific Time, 6 PM US Mountain Time, 7 PM US Central Time, and 8 PM US Eastern Time
I'd like to invite you to join me and thousands of others in a weekly meditation practice called Circle of Light. For four weeks on Tuesdays, between October 13th and November 3rd, we will practice subtle activism through meditation. Our intention is to activate the energy of love and wisdom in ourselves and the subtle fields around us. And to make a real difference in the atmosphere around us.
You can register to be part of this free weekly event here. When you register, you will receive a (free) audio guided meditation, as well as a written version, that you can practice with or use as a template for your practice.
You are invited to practice this meditation on your own, either instead of or in addition to ones you may already be doing. And I would invite you to create your own circle if you are moved to do so.
Here is what we intend through this practice:
As you know, we are going through a time of deep confusion and polarization. Stress, fear, and uncertainty affect many of us and run through our societies. As a traveler on the spiritual path, you have a super-power—your inner focus—that you can bring to bear at this crucial moment. Many of you are actively working for change in the world. Along with that, you are in a unique position to practice subtle activism. Using our skills as meditators, as givers of blessing, and as souls who wish the best for each other, our societies, and our world, we have the skills, practicing together, to inject light and positive energy into the atmosphere. Many studies have shown that prayer works, especially affirmative prayer and active imagination, practiced in a meditative state.
The purpose of the Circle of Light is to practice generating light for the sake of humanity and our world. We'll be joined by the members of many vibrant spiritual communities, many skilled practitioners and teachers, and, hopefully, by you and your friends and family members.
Every Tuesday from October 13th to November 3rd, at 5 PM US Pacific Time, 6 PM US Mountain Time, 7 PM US Central Time, and 8 PM US Eastern Time, we will sit in our own spaces to meditate.
Together, we will help create a force of light that can circle the globe. We want to meet the challenges of this time without fear, and ultimately this demands that we meet it with love. It is not passive love, but an active love, a love that lets us tap into the power of Spirit and change the subtle energies of our atmosphere. We can each enact this intention in our own way. The core practice, which we'll be doing in the meditations that follow, is to turn into the heart, place our intentions there, and use the power of imagination to begin the process of healing that can potentially touch every corner of our societies.
Every one of you has cultivated a relationship with Spirit, whether through meditation or through the way you live your life. This is our chance to bring these skills and subtle connections together to make a difference in this moment's energy.
By registering here for this free program, you will receive access to an audio meditation, taught by me, that you can follow in your daily practice. You will also be able to download the written text for the instructions, which you might want to record in your voice.
I hope you can join us.
With much love,
Sally Kempton teaches at the cutting edge of ancient and contemporary wisdom, unfolding the energetic practices of the tantrikas in an atmosphere that creates space for real inner change. A former swami in a Vedic tradition, she has been teaching for nearly 40 years and is known for her powerful transmissions of meditative states. Sally is the author of the recently released Awakening Shakti: The Transformative Power of the Goddesses of Yoga and the best-selling book Meditation for the Love of It. Her audio program of meditations on the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, Doorways to the Infinite, was recently released by Sounds True. She offers regular retreats and workshops as well as teleconferences.

First, from KaiShanti:
As Evolution Evolves Itself, We Are Becoming More Free
Understanding how our nature works involves understanding the patterning that has been created as a part of our cellular structuring. We can't see the whole if we can't see the minute details of our own existence. Reasoning would say that we must be whole beings of light if we are structures of cellular renewal and light emanations. Reasoning would say that we must be renewing ourselves every day to be a new part of a whole system of play as dynamic grace. We must be this every day or we will be redefining an old system of uncooperative, unharmonic games.
What do we want to become truly? Do we want to become play as the unequivocal grace that arises from every strand of our being? Do we want to become the play of grace in the harmony of the things that are unseen as well as seen? Do we want to know that grace is our very structure, and beingness is created in this space? Do we want to know that we exist in harmony with all things that are seen in this world of reality as well as the unseen world of biomolecular change. Our repeated reasoning makes us think that we are something, somewhere in time and space. Our knowledge from within the depths of our being makes us know that the divine is at play and we must acquiesce to the changes that are becoming real in our biological play.
It is all happening for a reason, and we must see the play as a dynamic change in our every day functioning as a modern upgrade for divine grace!

Author of "Kundalini Wonder: The god/goddess in Your Body", "Unmasking the Rose: A Record of a Kundalini Initiation", "Some Kiss We Want: Poems Selected and New", and more beautiful poetry books. She will discuss her awakening experience and read a few of her mystical poems, all related to Kundalini. She experienced spontaneous awakening in l981 when Kundalini was almost unknown in the West about Kundalini. Thus she went through her process basically with no information or guides. She was thrown into ecstasy (The god force) and ecstasy became her guide.
