Thought Archive #1 – We All Exist Under the Sun
I was walking with my son
in the Sun
we saw our shadows
and through his eyes
it was (like) the first time
I saw my shadow too
The body so perfectly mirrored in the midday Sun
Drawn and distorted in the late day Sun
We all exist under the Sun
Each day in the light there is cast a shadow
What do you see in the shadow of the self?
Is this the Law of Correspondence in plain view each day?

Ah, in Sanskrit “ah” is a verb meaning that suggests evoking or calling the manifestation of enlightenment.
Hum is often thought of as representing the manifestation of enlightenment in the individual human being.
Vajra It means diamond. The implication is that the diamond can cut through the delusions of the mind.
Guru or wise teacher.
Padma means lotus, calling to mind the purity of the enlightened mind, because the lotus flower, although growing in muddy water, is completely stainless. The lotus therefore represents wisdom.
Siddhi means accomplishment or supernatural powers, suggesting the way in which those who are enlightened can act wisely.
