THE FLAME OF SILENCE


Receiving is that which is without beginning or end. There is but the recognition of the invitation. The Flame Of Silence resides in, and illumines the Heart, and this is the one true abode. Searching for enlightenment is the search for that which is, That which is always illumined, and one is That. There can be no search for That which IS. Searching for enlightenment is the play of desire and aversion as a means of substituting one notion of refuge for another. There is no escape, and there is nowhere to go. There is but the humble erosion of the fortress of notions scaffolded with belief, and humbling is the Grace of erosion.

Every arising of the story of i and the i itself is an offering. There is no escape, only the falling into the Heart. The play of desire and aversion is maintained by the habits of distraction. The Flame Of Silence is that which consumes all that is untrue, as love consumes all which is not love. Being is itself the way of purification, and this is to serve all Beingness.

All fragmentation is separation, and all fragmentation moves to wholeness as there is but the way of awakening. This is choiceless. There is no chooser of such. Wholeness is free of any division of inside outside. This is without end, as one welcomes the invitation of self, one welcomes the invitation as All. Separation is consumed by the eternal. There is but One Source, and as such, nowhere to go, no one doing anything, no doer.

There is but the recognition of the invitation. The enlightenment one seeks is the illumination within, prior to and not determined by any notion of self or story, yet these constructs and beliefs are the Grace which serve as the invitation and the welcoming. The Flame Of Silence is the eternal illumination which is the Heart, and this Heart is the one true abode. This is the Taste of light, as one is the illumined reflection of the illumined flame, yet never separate. May the Grace of the invitation and the welcoming be realized as One.
