Stillness

Presence in stillness

Noise external received by the senses
Contracting thoughts also take their chances
Bouncing off crystalline spherical perception
No point of entry for dualistic deception

The domain of inner stillness is rippleless innocence
Energised by divine entwined expansive presence
Movement of images are watched with equanimity
The core untouched, always retaining its vital pristinity

Call it all time stillness or any time meditation
Presence without thought, divine love fructification
Such is the default position of unified consciousness
A continuum of alert stillness in free flowing be-ness

The body self void is filled with the nectar divine & magnetised
By unified non self presence, Universe energised
Outer & inner both become one, in the staid, deep stillness
Awareness just is, as it is, in a state of expansive wellness

There is neither any doing, nor any seeking
Save presence alive & aglow within, in motionless being
No egoistic clutter, no calculation, no computation
Simply engaged as That, in a continuum of ecstatic elation

As the That essence, now occupy the body vehicle
The That being the stillness itself, egoistic force is null
Inner stillness within outer movement, the game is yet played
As Universe ordained, zestfully though detachedly engaged

The shifting stillness fulcrum

Dynamically aware unfettered consciousness
Motionless in silently shifting stillness
Movement is of the current, not our mind
Free floating, unresistant, dissolved, aligned

Alertly still & trustingly unexpectant
Fragmented narrow thoughts decadent
The exalted ineffable divine essence
Imbibed automatically by soulful presence

Inverted image, apparent reality being illusion
Worldly knowledge known to be delusion
Inner wisdom ignited within stillness accentuated
Effortlessly, as a nondoer, divine-centre gravitated

Stillness being nothing but freezing the external
Disowning all instruments resident in the ephemeral
Movement is at the periphery but the centre is still
Self merged in the Universe, as a unified will

There is neither any coming nor any going
Save an observer attentive to divine energy flowing
In just being, becoming, transforming magically
Awareness without self, blossoming automatically

Oxymoron: am still

Am not it, so who is still?
Save egoistic will
That separate self
Devious elf!

Dissolved yet distinct
In a boundary-less precinct
Awareness devoid of thought
Divine love begot!

Not stillness then but dissolution
No self, so no conflict resolution
In being, becoming, the That presence
One with Universe manifested divine essence!

The vessel magnetised
Divine love energised
Am of the whole, in the now, complete
Dissolved in stillness, with joy replete

What is stillness then, save alignment within?
In the continuum of now, at each moment we begin
As ordained, invariably as a non-doer receptor
On occasion, a divine-entwined transmitter!

Stretching stillness

Stretch as in time
But time dissolves
No thought, no chime
Self control devolves

Movement imperceptible
Not as in linear sizing
Subtly perceptible
Magnetism rising

Presence observing
Unfettered, free flowing
Joyfully accepting
Surrendered allowing

Love being the enablement
Unreservedly sharing
That Universe endowment
In connectedness bestowing

Wills unify, spirit caring
Desirelessly
Nonjudgmental pairing
Outpouring love ceaselessly

Stillness be alive
It’s movement heightened fragrance
Elixir of life deep in its hive
Manifesting as divine radiance

No struggle in extended stillness
For there is no struggler
Presence imbibes the essence
Universe is itself the adroit juggler

Automatic unfolding
In the now
Wonderful beholding
Within; if we but allow

Stillness within the flow

Relaxed awareness
Consciousness still
Continuum of be-ness
Voids within fill
Automatically
The seed germinates
Felt within ecstatically
Nectar divine precipitates
The humming divine energy
All encompassing omnipresence
Singularity, convergence, synergy
Embraced in innocence
By just being
In aligned oneness
Unseekingly seeing
Within flowing stillness

The off-button

Flurry of thoughts; Passing through
Not mine; Curious to their origin
Familiar patterns; Stale brew
Stillness within; Calm & sanguine

Fearful thoughts; Feral desires
Attachment driven; Whose?
Mind is still; Yet the brain tires
Awareness staid; Ego does confuse

Here it is! The thought off-button!
Allowing fulcrum shift! To the still centre!
A divine gift! Thanks a ton!
Door within open! I enter!

Stillness: Back to the basics

Nothing new in the electrochemistry
It no longer is a scientific mystery
Waves Beta, Alpha, Theta, Delta, Gamma & Epsilon
Descending from buoyant ecstasy to a persona forlorn

Zodiac signs & rainbow colours assigned to chakras renamed
Esoteric yogic techniques, exponents aplenty, all self-proclaimed
Fiery verbal duels, by many an argumentative eristic
Each it seems is the ultimate mystic

Leaving profundity to theorists whose verbosity we acknowledge
What matters is assimilated wisdom, not vicarious knowledge
So we go in within, alone, in meditational stillness, upon a virgin path
Each moment in the time continuum, a holy sabbath

What we seek is expansive consciousness & joy eternal
And what is eternal is obviously not embraceable in the ephemeral
So we chop off perishable egoistic attachments, fear & desire
And straightaway plunge our non-self into the divine fire

How? In unseeking stillness within ... deep within
Where at each moment we anew begin
No conflict, no violence
Effortless stillness, rippleless silence

No agenda, no seeker, no doer
We are still, yet there is a mover
The flow of the Universe within into which we dissolve
Emerging from which we automatically evolve

What do we gain & what do we lose?
Irrelevant, for we are not, yet desirelessly choose
What we lose is our sorrow generating gross contaminant
Gain being ineffable, exalted, joyous divine love enablement

There is no way; our choice itself is the way
Save unendingly effusing love, no rules to obey
Thoughts sublime, words kind, actions benign
Self, Soul & Spirit thus align

Trust the Universe, plunge into its loving stream
We need to wake up now, from our narrow dream
Upon lighting a candle, darkness is instantly expelled
Surrendering to the divine, ignorance is automatically dispelled

And that is all there is to it
Doable if we do & never ever quit
Simpler the truth, it seems the more elusive it is
So perplexed we are by life’s jigsaw quiz

A stillness koan

Expanding bubbles within bubbles within bubbles
Circumference nowhere, yet centres multiple
Free flowing in the current, although the self is still
Awareness still, yet expanding within unified will

Unconditioned stillness or humble stillness?

So, as much as we are able, we still our thoughts & our body
Having previously cleansed egoistic fears & desires shoddy
Plunged into meditation thus constituted we are yet graced
By the exalted, ineffable divine love embrace

Yet, how still is our stillness in terms of its pristinity?
Does it not contain some memory linked egoistic vanity?
If not, why at each moment in time are we not surprised?
To what measure then do we truly allow the Universe to be our guide?

If the stillness we engage in be coloured by past perception
Our cup not empty, the limited stillness becomes a deception
Although we yet receive the divine grace since love judges us not
Conditioned stillness may perhaps leave us feeling a bit short

As in any experience, in meditation too we anticipate its trajectory
Inevitable, since we recall the past experience through imagery
What enables, also disables, constrains
Boon becomes bane

It appears then that abandoning pursuit of unconditioning, we choose humility
While knowing that we know, the humble know that they know not the entirety
And totally surrender
Beholding unfolding within stillness in childlike wonder

***

End of contemplation for this moment
Until we are presented with a truth more potent
Until then engaged in staid stillness
We be to become in a continuum of be-ness

***

Hey...

That ripped me to the core.

I dig it..

At some point

We slow it down

What is it?

At the core.
