Door in the Sky
The other day a door in the sky appeared
as I lay on the beach watching the clouds taking shapes.
There was a rabbit prancing by.
The door opened.
I soared up like an eagle and entered
this mystery, a door to the other side of the sky
where the bridges lead to many places and timelines.
I stayed for a while visiting, just like a walk
through the garden with many
flowers to love, I was in awe.
"What do people think spiritual development is? It’s not lights and trumpets. It’s very simple. It’s right here and now. People have this idea that Enlightenment and realization is something in the distance - a very fantastic and magnificent happening which will transform everything once and for always. But it’s not like that at all. It’s something which is sometimes so simple you hardly see it. It’s right here in front of us, so close we don’t notice it. And it’s something which can happen at any moment. And the moment we see it, there it is. It’s been there all the time, but we’ve had our inner eye closed. When the moments of awareness all link up - then we become a Buddha. "
