Feb 25 Live the questions!

The practice from this episode were as follows:

Be and live with the following questions:

What happens with me, when I pretend that there is a Superior and Great Intelligence inside of me who consistently speaks to me.?
This is a question for you to just live with for a while. Its a pretension like kids play. Just be with It.

What effect would it have in my Life, if I would listen now to my Inner Voice?
Again be with that great question and maybe journal on it what ever wants to come.

Who is speaking? Where do these/my thoughts come from?


Enough with such questions!

Enough with such questions! –
Let silence take you to the core of life.

All your talk is worthless
When compared to one whisper
of the Beloved.  PAUSE

Ode 442 trans. by Jonathan Star and Shahram Shiva
A Garden Beyond Paradise: The Mystical Poetry of Rumi

I burst into laughter Kabir

I burst into laughter
whenever I hear
that the fish is thirsty in water.

Without the knowledge of Self
people just wander to Mathura or to Kashi
like the musk-deer unaware
of the scent in his navel,
goes on running forest to forest.

In water is the lotus plant
and the plant bears flowers
and on the flowers are the bees buzzing.
Likewise all yogis and mendicants
and all those who have renounced comforts,
are on here and hereafter and the nether world —

Friend, the Supreme Indestructible Being,
on whom thousands of sages meditate
and even Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh,
really resides within one’s self.

The practice of your Inner Path

 The practice of your Inner Path

 The practice of your Inner Path is foremost an opening-up for the Being which one experiences inside.

From here the Inner Being speaks and calls.

From morning to night the world calls us outward, wants to be recognized as the world and mastered.

The Inner Being calls us consistently from inside and into our Inner World.

The world demands from us knowledge and proficiency.

The Inner Being demands from us, that in our Service of Becoming, we forget the Known and the Doing of it.

The world demands consistently that we are doing something.

The Inner Being demands from us that we simply let the Right Thing happen.

The world presses us forward and keeps us going without pause, so we could come to something stationary.

The Inner Being demands from us to look at It, non-attached,

So while standing still we would not fall short.

The world makes us speak and act incessantly.

The Inner Being demands, that we become silent and act, without doing.

The world forces us to think about security.

The Inner Being encourages us to constantly Dare Something New.

The world obeys to us, when we understand and grasp it.

The Inner Being opens itself to us, when we Endure The Incomprehensible.

The bearing force of the Inner Being will proof itself,

when we let go that which holds us in the world.

The Inner Being renews and transforms us only,

when we disconnect ourselves again from that, which enriches us in the world.

from Karlfried Graf Dürckheim, Zen Master and psychotherapist, Germany

from his book “Alltag als Übung”- Daily Life as practice, 1966

translated by Rosemarie Heyer, host of the Just Be It blog talk radio show

…Live the question Rainer Maria Rilke

from the Book  Letters to a young poet

“.…and I want to ask you to have patience about the unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves,

like closed rooms and books, which are written in a very strange language.

Do not search for answers now, whcih could not be given to you, as you would not be able to live them yet.

Now love the questions.

Maybe then without notice in days to come, you will live into the answers.”
