Alex Grey: The Vast Expanse

I acknowledge the privilege of being alive in a human body at this moment, endowed with senses, memories, emotions, thoughts, and the space of mind in its wisdom aspect;

It is the prayer of my innermost being to realize my supreme identity in the liberated play of consciousness, the Vast Expanse; Now is the moment, Here is the place of Liberation;

Witness the contents of mind, the visions and sounds, the thoughts, as clouds passing through the Vast Expanse - the skylike nature of mind; The rootedness of Being is in emptiness, clarity and awareness: Unborn, unspoilt, stainlessly pure;

The infinite vibratory levels, the dimensions of interconnectedness are without end; There is nothing independent; All beings and things are residents in your awareness;

I subject my awareness to the perfection of being, the perfection of wisdom and perfection of love, all of these being co-present in the Vast Expanse; I share this panorama of Being and appreciate all I can share it with;

The seamless interweaving of awareness with each moment creates perfection wherever you go; That is why this teaching is admired by artists - they sense the correctness of the response to life as creative;

Life is infinite creative play; Enjoyment and participation in this creative play is the artist's profound joy; We coauthor every moment with universal creativity;

To bare our souls is all we ask, to give all we have to life and the beings surrounding us; Here the nature spirits are intense and we appreciate them, make offerings to them - these nature spirits who call us here - sealing our fate with each other, celebrating our love;

I am an intersecting kaleidoscope of Being in a rainbow refractive wave pattern: A corpuscle of light on the ocean; the transparency of my body with the rocks; sometimes the only way to summarize my feelings is to draw - to collapse the frenzy in my limbs enough to make a mark out of profound appreciation for my existence;

Share your presence with others, no boundaries, completely, openly, lovingly; Love is what makes us alive, that is why we feel so alive when we love; Service is being available to love; Life is the combustion of love; That we love ourselves here, that is the true magnificence in the mountains of being;

We are constantly drawing the line between love and not love - enter into the Nonduality Zone; All judgements dissolve in the Vast Expanse;

It's as though we are co-conspirators of consciousness - everyone, everywhere, everywhen, mixing up our openable minds; It's as though we could gather clouds in the sky and people into our lives; Like an eruption of consciousness, we discover the most important force is love;

Experience yourself as the Source and appreciate every moment as perfection; Sunrise - Sunset; Thank you, thank you, Creator, Profound unstoppable connectedness of all beings, Pattern to everything, most radical no-thing, the Vast Expanse;

Daily Dedroidify: Lady

There was a young lady named Bright
Whose speed was much faster than light;
She departed one day
In a relative way
And returned on the previous night.
