Thank-you to Catherine and Chris

This is a big thank-you to Catherine and Chris for opening up their home

as an offering to the Asheville Open Gate Sangha.The potluck food was

scrumptious, discussion mutually satisfying, and, most importantly, we

all had some good laughs. The nature walk around the property provided

everyone with a wonderful bonus treat. See photo for one of our lighter

moments. Left to right: Lila, Melanie, Solomon, and Wendy. Photo snapped

by Jeff Sharp on cell phone… Continue

RELEASING CHILDHOOD’S NIGHTMARES

© 2010 Howard McQueen



We constantly pave over our experience with life,

forgetting that we are merely the parchment,

the visible sacrament for the invisible omnipresence,

that breathes and shines through us.



We are connected,

yea, super-saturated…

SURRENDERING TO INTIMACY

(c) 2010 Howard McQueen



When we surrender to intimacy

the lurking and hiding,

the pushing away and aggressing,

are supremely threatened.



That which interrupts the sacredness of intimacy

can then be illuminated in the spotlight of awareness

and seen for its rooted claim,

its clinging to separation and pain.



Available for summoning is an inner courage,

to support and service the…

LAYING DOWN JUDGMENT

(C) 2010 Howard McQueen

In forgiveness there is the healing
of that which we judged and condemned.
What if we were to lay down and dismiss the judge and jury
and live without comparison, condemnation and judgment.
What if we were free to live from the center of our authenticity.
Imagine the wealth of spirit we would then appreciate,
share and exchange with each other.

THE THRESHOLD OF VIBRANT STILLNESS

(C) 2010 Howard McQueen

The space
before there is doing,
the shimmering vibrancy
the pregnant hum
the threshold of life and form
awaiting its moment to spring forth

Where energy manifests and returns
this in-between mysterious existence
so full of stories
arising from the dynamic fold.

FRAMING AND CONTAINING EACH DAY

(C) 2010 Howard McQueen


We humans live in the rhythms we create.
We sometimes loose the remembering
to frame each day with blessing


All the tasks awaiting us
urge us to rush,
to skip over the larger container of sacredness.


Blessing becomes active prayer,
containing our sense of sacredness,
reminding us to begin each day,
each…
