A new home for the family Buddha

No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.

Buddha tell me what is it like to be taken to a new home?

Placed facing the east and in alignment with the path of the constellations over many years. I find that I am now facing south-west. This is a great surprise. Tonight I will see the sunset!!

Buddha do you miss the shade of the Eucalyptus tree where you once pondered the questions of life?

I do sense a distant echo and delightful smell of the Eucalyptus tree, but now I have new senses for my delighted soul !

Buddha tell me have you lived a good life so far?

I have only witnessed life around me. I have felt anger, love and forgiveness. I have seen lots of booze consumed over the years. All life is good!!

Buddha I have a another question for you?

Please I feel off right now… I am lost in a whirlwind of new feelings !

You seem balanced again, Buddha do you think you will be happy in your new home?

I am in tune now with the light of this place and will be fine !!

Buddha How do you feel?

I am like an old temple with a wide open altar that goes right down to the rawness of the earth’s heart, I am happy…

Buddha I see you.

And I see you and know you.

Yes to all that come by. I will be seeing them…the life that comes by. The many. I am not hidden anymore…

Day 7 off the Holy of Holies

Still & Quiet

Hummingbird is still on a branch

Looking around

Long thin beak

I heard a chirp too

Hummingbird quiet on a branch.

Today is a new moon

Like a vacuum it pulls

But like the humming bird

I will be still and quiet

Looking around…

Waiting for the time

To spontaneously vibrate my wings

And take off.

The Hierarchy of Libra rules this day of the new moon.

“The human body center correlating with Libra is to be found in the adrenal glands. These glands, when functioning properly, create absolute physical and psychological balance through each organ and it’s processes. ” Pg. 15 Corinne Heline

“May the element of space not rise up as an enemy,

may I see the realm of the blue buddha.

May the element of water not rise up as enemy,

may I see the realm of the white buddha.

May the element of earth not rise up as an enemy,

May I see the realm of the yellow buddha.

May the element of fire not rise up as an enemy,

may I see the realm of the red buddha.

May the element of air not rise up as an enemy,

May I see the green buddhas.

May the rainbow of the elements not rise up as enemies,

may I see the realms of all the buddhas.

May the sounds, lights and rays not rise up as enemies,

may I see the infinite realms of the Peaceful and Wrathful Ones.

May I know all the sounds as my own sound,

may I know all lights as my own light

may I know all the rays as my own ray.

May I spontaneously know the bardo as myself,

may I attain the realms of the three Kayas. “

~Pg. 101-2, The Tibetan Book of The Dead, Francesca Fremantle & Chogyam Trungpa
