11:27 pm - Thus Spake Emily D.
I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you -- Nobody Too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! They'd advertise you know!

How dreary to be Somebody!
How public like a Frog
To tell one's name the livelong June
To an admiring Bog!

Emily Dickinson, c.1861

Nanda asks:

Is it possible to be this "place" of non-proclamation, not attempting to assert or be, of non-superiority/inferiority?

Dakini responds:

Yes, it is possible to rest in

the spacious awareness of what IS

no assertion, no proclamation

no fixating, no altering,

no concept nor nonconcept!

continuing with

the arising abiding ceasing

Self-liberation happens unceasingly ...

Rest in that.

6:43 pm - ... hovering ...
Happy to be a lurking sky-going feminine-type circling the periphery of these rich and tangled mandalas. Hey, SOME(NO)BODY's got to witness ...

Tom Om asks:

"How come it feels, often, like trying to ... xxxx ... is like navigating through a minefield? As though one must tiptoe to avoid upsetting the 'spiritual agenda of someone else... and the complaint is loud, indeed, if ever a toe is stepped on!"

Dakini answers:

I've been upsetting people's 'spiritual agendas' for years. Have gradually learned to kiss, pinch and lovingly tweak those tinkle toes (not agressively step on 'em). Slowly, slowly
("kaali, kaali...") stirring a bit more estrogen into the mix. *{;-)

Tom continues to bitch:

"Here, what is called 'sangha' means: 'Act in such a way that others consider to be 'spiritual', arbitrarily and based on various emotional and conceptual notions of 'spirituality'. The lowest common denominator becomes 'acceptable behavior'."

Dakini responds:

I have observed this LCD effect in sanghas most continuously for nearly 30 years. It's worse when there's nobody around with realization stabilized (emphasis on the word stabilized).

[See immediately previous post On Lineage.] So you're hanging out on the bureaucratic/political/sactimonious/sycophant end of the continuum? Gets a little sticky and crowded in there, eh?

I must be getting uncrusty and a wee bit wise. These days I'm serenely content to rest in the nature of spacious awareness, be with, hold the spaciousness, as I witness and circle at the periphery of these horribly beautiful moth-eaten brocaded mandalas. On rare occasions making a veiled appearance, dropping a pearl or two. Mostly goes unseen, save the earth, sky, rocks, water and spacious bliss herself. May these drops of nectar ripen and bloom as the heart-seeds of my future child beings!

T.O. "... But being here is like walking through a graveyard!" :-(

A.Dakini: Aaaah, Om ... you've discovered why some of us practice in the charnel grounds!

ah La LA HO!

With deep love and deep respect,

Love,

Dakini

5:58 pm - On Lineage
"Indestructible continuity of wisdom mind is the heart of lineage. Realization of essence is the mind of lineage. Deep and profound devotion to Padmasambhava and Yesh Tsogyel [substitute named of your favorite Enlightened One] is the bone and blood of lineage. Relationship with the [Vajra] Master is the birth and transmission of lineage. Bureaucratic seal of approval is the pus of lineage. Politics of Dharma is the corpse of lineage. Sanctimonious authority is the rigor mortis of lineage. Fawning disciples kissing ass are the maggots of lineage. Hope and fear are the dusty bleached bone remains of lineage. Always be careful about the quality of lineage. -- Traktung Rinpoche

5:53 pm - What Am I Doing Here?
Dear heart-friends,

I will be using this LiveJournal website to post pithy and potent musings, quotes, exhanges/conversations/dialogues, and gifted teachings on nonduality from the many/one source. Let's see what unravels ....

You can visit me 24/7 at:

http://www.livejournal.com/users/dakini/

As ever, I'll be up to all-good and no-thing.

Wishing you wisdom, clarity and spacious awareness,

American Dakini
