In Light of Merton ~ Joe Z

At the very center of our being is a great spaciousness

that is untouched by sin and illusion.

A point of pure truth which is inaccessible

to the fantasies of our mind or the brutalities of our will.

It’s like a pure diamond – blazing with the invisible light of heaven. It’s in everybody.

And if we could only see it and integrate it – we would radiate a peace

that would make all the darkness and all the cruelty vanish forever

The Light in your Darkness


I believe that this is a poem that brings out truly and beautifully the meaning and impact of awareness in our lives.

“In the darkness of your thoughts
Created by circumstances
Both complex and overwhelming,
When no amount of spirits
Or conversation within yourself
Can erase the images imprinted
On your mind……………………….

Let me lift you out of suffering
On angel wings to lofty heights
Where nothing can hurt you
Where nothing is relevant
But the blessings of the moment
And the air that we breathe…………

Let me wrap you in my warm embrace
And hold you close to my heart
With love and understanding
Beyond the need for mortal words
Your darkness will be lifted
And your spirit shall fly free……..

The light in your darkness……let me be”

Third Dimension


Most of us spend our lives trapped in the concept of duality. It is a trick of the mind to keep us enslaved to it. Light-darkness, good-bad, love-hate, and so on. When we choose one of the two it is like the pendulum that has moved to one extreme but it cannot remain there for long. The result being we are caught up in swinging to either extreme and there is no rest. The mind is happy because it gets the attention it is desperately seeking in order to remain at the center.

But there is a third dimension to this polarity. In the third dimensional realm of polarity, dark and light are not bad and good. They are just here and we are the awareness of them. When we learn this, the polarities fade into unity. It enables us to connect with our true self. We begin to perceive the truth more clearly so that we can make more conscious choices and move into alignment with our soul path. This practice which greatly supports the process of self-inquiry and realizing the truth of who we are, is meditation.

Understand this and floods of conscious bliss shall come pouring in and around you from all directions. NAMASTE.
