Celebrate What You Have.

Help Where You Can.

Be at One with What Is.

--David Ryan

 

 


“You are at the edge of the abyss. I will not let you fall.”

 

“Whose abyss?

 

“God’s.”

 

Page 288 / Report to Greco

 

--Nikos Kazantzakis

 

He who stands on tiptoe is not steady.
He who strides cannot maintain the pace.
He who makes a show is not enlightened.
He who is self-righteous is not respected.
 
-- Lao Tzu  (as are below)
 
 
... he who knows that enough is enough
will always have enough.
 
 
Without looking through the window,
you may see the ways of heaven.
The farther you go, the less you know.
 
 
... an army without flexibility never wins a battle.
a tree that is unbending is easily broken.

     

I have always been a fan

of dear Courtney Love.

Her looks, her tunes

and her attitude

won me over

right away.

 

Her most recent offering

at first seems

extreme and disturbing,

even for her.


But I stayed with it,

and found some

really sweet spots,

esp. her heart felt,

heartbreaking

prayer, a true confession

of need“ – and that

anthem of existential despair --

“... Sunday morning

& the rain

begins to fall ...”,

etc ... as per

her CD “Nobody’s

Daughter.”

 

She’s been in the hole

for a long time,

but she’s

“making a medicine

of the illness” --

unrelentingly,

majestically,

beautifully.

 

Bill Joyner

 
 
 

 

Every temple needs a tent!

 

... to remind it of the need

for continuous reformation

and spiritual evolution

 

... to provide a context for

critical reflection,

experimentation

and discovery

 

and

 

... to nourish

the imagination

through understanding

and compassion.

. Time to proceed with the Seed, time to bleed away the loss
of dreams,
later to be
recovered,

and to begin everything all over again, thankfully.

My long announced, publication
SEED SONGS
(a rainbow of natural spirituality)

must be delayed even further:

THE SEED CATALOG, however, need
wait no longer --
 


dancing star '82 regularly $500 for this month of July costs only $300 -- a 40% discount honoring the 40th anniversary of the
Immaculate Heart Community

This is the tough part, the pitch for continuing seed back support. But, as Van Morrison says in his song, "I'm real real gone," and "I can't stand up alone." Just kindly let me know by checking the form below, whether and/or how you'd like to respond to the ongoing 3 times a year publication of THE SEED CATALOG:

___ Yes, bring it on, in whatever form!

___ No more mailings, will check it out on the web at www.seedcatalog.cc  (or not) -- ha, ha!

Thanks, too, for any financial or moral support. ($5 donation suggested) Bill Joyner joynerbill28@gmail.com
