The amazing words of Baraka Elihu…
If we fixate too much on the path…
If we fixate too much on the path
we will end up walking around in circles
pointing out to everyone
exactly what the path is.
If we surrender to the deep process of creating peace within
and if we give ourselves completely to the work
of being authentic to this moment, and then this one,
we will vibrate with a sound so beautiful
that the Universe will echo tears of gratitude-
She will exhale with such engaged relief,
the sound of the Universe being loved deeper.
If you cultivate your energy towards being raw for this moment,
and then this one and the next also,
you will find that people will stop debating with you
and there will no longer be that insatiable need
to compare yourself with others
and separate out one side from another.
People will only be able to say “Thank you-
after all this walking around, it’s just so good to see you!”
It is easy to read books and to talk a lot.
That’s a lot easier than practicing the teachings.
I have found that there is no path.
The Great One has shown me how to still myself
and be here for this moment only.
I have often scurried around,
trying to come up with various alternate routes
but I cannot hide from myself.
Everywhere I will ever go and all that I will ever become
exists for this moment-
Pathless, Deathless, Immortal…
The Music I ache to hear only plays right now.
I see a unified field of energy-
All that comes into your day, the perfect harmonic of yourself.
So wasting time proclaiming what is this and what is that
might be the perfect way to distract yourself
from the treasure sitting right here in your lap.
I could talk about attainment, but really there is nothing to attain. 
You have already located all your own answers,
they are nestled warmly right here in your lap!
You have done enough work, you are enough.
All this striving and struggle,
complaining and doubtful looking around
and you are an Enlightened One already! 
Instead of attainment, set your practice on acceptance.
You are the most compelling work of Art you’ve created-
you are much more than enough.
If it brings you joy to read the books, then surely that is correct.
If it brings you joy to stop reading, 
maybe try to stop buying so many books!
If we fixate too much on the path
we will end up walking around in circles
pointing out to everyone
exactly what the path is.
How distracting when the people are dancing!
Since heaven is not a territory,
I try to take guidelines and directions loosely,
spend my energy in process, practicing joy and being true to myself.
I try to share a little something of my own raw essence
for this is the only real gift I have to offer. 
I have found that there is no path.
The Great One has shown me how to release my beliefs about Love
and build more energy for Loving.
All the spaces where my beliefs use to be housed
are now deeper rivers flowing.
We can create permanent peace.
There is no limit to the peace we can manufacture.
By engaging with the unified Ocean of energy
we transmit a shuddering of pure peace.
All the Universe will shimmer in the radiance of gratitude
that moment we cultivate our own joy
and accept ourselves as transcendent spiritual beings,
the Heaven of ourselves always expanding-
She is here, sleeping beside you for this moment.
