Be A Light

''Therefore, be a lamp unto yourself, be a refuge to yourself.

Take yourself to no external refuge. Hold fast to the Truth as a lamp; hold fast to the Truth as a refuge. Look not for a refuge in anyone beside yourself.

And those, who shall be a lamp unto themselves, who take themselves to no external refuge, but holding fast to the Truth as their lamp, and holding fast to the Truth as their refuge, shall not look for refuge to anyone beside themselves, it is they who shall reach the highest goal."

~ Mahaparinibbana Sutta

No clue the truth or otherwise of this, but it's an exciting video :)

Word of the (Solstice) day: "grimmelings", also "grimplins", "grimlins"––the first & last gleams of daylight (Scots, esp. Orkney), which around midsummer in northern latitudes blend to form the "simmer dim" (summer twilight).

Cf Swedish "grim(b)la", "to glimmer before the eyes".

"“Too lazy to be ambitious,I let the world take care of itself.Ten days' worth of rice in my bag;a bundle of twigs by the fireplace.Why chatter about delusion and enlightenment?Listening to the night rain on my roof,I sit comfortably, with both legs stretched out.”"

The Ark of the Covenant and The Hill of Tara



During 1899 and 1902, members of the British-Israel Association of London came to Co Meath to dig up the Hill of Tara. These ‘British-Israelites’ believed they would find buried there the Ark of the Covenant, the chest said to contain the Ten Commandments inscribed on stone tablets.

Recital of the Sarmouni Brotherhood

S/He who knows and does not know that s/he knows: s/he is asleep. Let them become one, whole. Let them be awakened.

S/He who has known but does not know:
let them see once more the beginning of all.

S/He who does not wish to know, and yet says that s/he needs to know:
let them be guided to safety and to light.

S/He who does not know, and knows that s/he does not know:
let them, through this knowledge, know.

S/He who does not know, but thinks that s/he knows:
set them free from the confusion of that ignorance.

S/He who knows, and knows that S/He is:
s/he is wise. Let them be followed.
By their presence alone man may be transformed.

I who know, and do not know that I know:
let me become one, whole.
Let me be awakened.

I who have known, but do not know:
let me see once more the beginning of all.

I who do not wish to know, and yet say that I need to know:
let me be guided to safety and light.

I who do not know, and know that I do not know:
let me through this knowledge, know.

I who do not know, but think that I know:
set me free from the confusion of that ignorance.

We who know, and do not know that we know:
let us become one, whole.
Let us be transformed.

We who have known, but do not know:
let us once more see the beginning of all.

We who do not wish to know, and yet say that we need to know:
let us be guided to safety and light.

We who do not know, and know that we do not know:
let us, through this knowledge, know.

We who do not know, but think that we know:
set us free from the confusion of that ignorance.

As with our forebears
So with our successors.
So with us.
We affirm this undertaking.
So let it be.

Come even if you broke your penitence a hundred times, Ours is the portal of hope, come as you are.'' ~ Rumi

''I am all pervasive.

I am without any attributes,

and without any form.

I have neither attachment to the world,

nor to liberation.

I have no wishes for anything

because I am everything,

everywhere,

every time,

always in equilibrium.

I am indeed,

That eternal knowing and bliss, Shiva,

love and pure consciousness.''
