    Jul 3 2012: 1. Matter, light and spirit are merely different notes on the same scale.
    2. Approached as equals, you can talk to anyone, from rocks to trees to lizards to the universe.
    3. That our creator sun is my friend because he/she's always looking over my shoulder and smiling.
    4. "That which is not present in deep dreamless sleep is not real." (Tamil Saint, Ramana Maharshi)
    5. The resonant, sounding breath is the self-arising (relaxed) manifestation of deep, dreamless sleep.
    Rest in it while awake and -- guess what happens? Cats will think that you've found the purrl in the lotus.
