‎"The sparrow has found its home at last, the swallow a nest for its young - both are your altars my king and my God." - Psalms 84:3 ... Oh what joy this will to good that causes the very act of perceiving to become the redemption of all appearance. This is the being obligation debt of humankind. - t.k.

Between the world of seeming solidity and the translucent world of mind's empty expanse, there is the fluid realm of wisdom's self-presencing as symbol. The mind must be transformed to read the script of symbol and in turn symbol transforms the mind. Wisdom symbology is part of a gnosemic language. - t.k.


The attraction of the sunflower to the sun and the attraction of devotion are the same. Devotion is the natural love response to what is most beautiful and creates the environment of growing and outgrowing. Devotion has nothing to at all to do with authority, sentiment, dogma, hierarchy ... it is the simplicity and beauty of Love. - t.k.

Going into sleep, mind dissolves in luminous expanse and even Being goes to rest in mystery. Waking up, the knowingness of this same mystery is always surprised, “Aha, it’s all still here!" The reality of this marvelous act of perceiving is beyond all conception. Sleeping and waking hold mysterious secrets. - t.k.

It is in silence that the subtle possibilities of language architectures are discovered. It is by not leaving the womb space of silence that the conversation of perceiving touches on the sublime. For this to be possible, one must consciously develop and deepen ones relationship with silence. - t.k.
