Breaking the Shell


“Don’t try to hurry,” he said. “You’ll know in due time and then you will be on your own, by yourself.” “Do you mean that I won’t see you any more, don Juan?” “Not ever again,” he said. “Genaro and I will be then what we always have been, dust on the road.” I had a jolt in the pit of my stomach. “What are you saying, don Juan?” “I’m saying that we all are unfathomable beings, luminous and boundless. You, Genaro and I are stuck together by a purpose that is not our decision.” “What purpose are you talking about?” “Learning the warrior’s way. You can’t get out of it, but neither can we. As long as our achievement is pending you will find me or Genaro, but once it is accomplished, you will fly freely and no one knows where the force of your life will take you.” “What is don Genaro doing in this?” “That subject is not in your realm yet,” he said. “Today I have to pound the nail that Genaro put in, the fact that we are luminous beings. We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless. The world of objects and solidity is a way of making our passage on earth convenient. It is only a description that was created to help us. We, or rather our reason, forget that the description is only a description and thus we entrap the totality of ourselves in a vicious circle from which we rarely emerge in our lifetime.”
― Carlos Castaneda


Breaking through the skin
I crack the shell of my life
the ongoing show in which I act
giving importance to things that never were.
Free of the things that ‘matter’
matter not
surrendering the pull of false emotions
and the endless mind traps that i set myself.
Liberation is bliss yet even that is but the inner face
Conscious existence is all that remains
The Being Now


Blessings, G

Truth Will Out…


“It is always the false that makes you suffer, the false desires and fears, the false values and ideas, the false relationships between people. Abandon the false and you are free of pain; truth makes happy, truth liberates.”
― Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj


Truth Liberates. Yet first because truth illuminates falsehood, we suffer if only it is the dissolution of the illusions that we live with. “I stay in this relationship for my children.” “Noone need ever know.” “I am doing this for you not for me.” Truth shows us our self interest and our rationalizations and makes us see ourselves for who we are. Of course this comes with the opportunity to become something better yet first comes that shock and yes that suffering. It’s not a bad trade tho it sucks at the time. Yet truth will out eventually.
Blessings, G
