Swimming Under Water

Hi everyone, it has been awhile.  The ghost of wandering is back and I am wrestling with him.

To reach satisfaction in all
desire its possession in nothing.
To come to possession in all
desire the possession of nothing.
To arrive at being all
desire to be nothing.
To come to the knowledge of all
desire the knowledge of nothing.
To come to the pleasure you have not
you must go by the way in which you enjoy not.
To come to the knowledge you have not
you must go by the way in which you know not.
To come to the possession you have not
you must go by the way in which you possess not.
To come by the what you are not
you must go by a way in which you are not.
When you turn toward something
you cease to cast yourself upon the all.
For to go from all to the all
you must deny yourself of all in all.
And when you come to the possession of the all
you must possess it without wanting anything.
Because if you desire to have something in all
your treasure in God is not purely your all.

~St. John of the Cross

“You don’t get full realization of the All if you want full realization of the All. Because as soon as you want it again, the seeker and grasper has been born again. You must possess it without wanting anything. This is someone speaking from mystical insight. Even if want to hold onto it you will lose it. It is the beginning of the ending of the false self. We start to realize to function from the fabric of consciousness itself. To function from the wholeness itself. Not from the place dominated by desire, want and control. And that is totally an unknown place”. ~Adyashanti
