When I look for silence,
I find silence
Inside my soul.
When I look for my soul,
I find my soul
Inside my silence.
Silence, silence, silence.
Silence awakens the sleeping seeker in me.
Silence enlightens the aspiring seeker in me.
Silence fulfils the self-giving seeker in me.

‘...Bliss is not something to be got.
On the other hand you are always Bliss.
This desire for Bliss is born of the sense of incompleteness.
To whom is this sense of incompleteness?
Enquire. In deep sleep you were blissful.
Now you are not so.
What has interposed between that Bliss and this non-bliss?
It is the ego.

I'm no resident astrologer, but I found this very interesting. There will be an eclipse of the full moon on Saturday, with 7 planets in grand cross formation. Especially in light of the fact that there are 2 global prayer vigils happening for the Gulf on Saturday simultaneously, and on the same day as this rare and powerful astrological event. Some interesting reflections on our emotionality at…

The G8 and G20 Summits are being held in Toronto (and Huntsville) starting today. World leaders are arriving here as I type this. Mr. Obama is among the group arriving. I cannot help but ask myself WHY Toronto (and areas in Northern Ontario/Huntsville/Quebec) experienced an earthquake yesterday in the late afternoon. Coincidence? Sure, could be. But I think not! We RARELY have earthquakes! The timing is perhaps a wake-up call for all of humankind.
