“THE HUMBLE MOMENT, when seen as time, space, and knowledge, is a target worth aiming at. It’s the vital center of the universe; if we hit it, we explode everything that prevents fulfillment, attaining everything that fulfills.” Tarthang Tulku.

……..‘Inside Knowledge‘, Edited by Jack Patranker, p.67

Sunlight paints my view… it lights the mundane, breathes life and populates the senses. Like the slow jazz floating around the room, it manifests the silence… exhaling richness of just being included…. gratitude warms everything, dawning as distance dissolves. Delight colors ‘things’, and feeling colors time…

Sound and symbol in mind-space merge with images seeing and remembered… breathe in the air we share… the scent of salt and more. Feel the space of the unfolding moment as it swells and spills over in waves… and spreads over crystalline fragments, filling in separations and uniting all in its flow… (See more…)

Another Humble Moment…

The Space in which the sound just occupied…open now…blue as can be…as far as listening can see. The prior of touch, the essence of ‘feel’…I am this… (See more…)

The Humble Moment…

Imagine this… Not at the end of the rainbow, gold is the light of experiencing it… As the starburst is in the taste, not the memory… Experience is not about achieving special states, it’s about expanding focus, it’s not the time beyond you, it’s all of you, not half-packed, it’s the full load… (See more…)

The Humble Moment

There was a moment that never was before, never will be again, it could only be experienced once… You might look back on its disappearing but memorable vicinity here… a luminous reflection off a vision of light … A simple moment’s notice…cannot be contained…eyes cherish, heart opens…all feelings wash and merge together… (See more…)

A Moment’s Notice…

About David Filippone

For more than 25 years I’ve been a 'student' of the Time, Space, Knowledge vision (TSK), not a teacher. And I write from an inquiring student's perspective neither proclaiming nor declaring. I figuratively sit in awe at the feet of a master, Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche. For the past 12 years, my personal TSK guide has been Jack Petranker, Director of the Mangalam Research Center for Buddhist Languages, and the Center for Creative Inquiry (CCI), past dean of the "Tibetan Nyingma Institute", and author of "When It Rains Does Space Get Wet?", "Inside Knowledge", and other TSK related books and articles... I've also received TSK instruction from the late, Carolyn Pasternak of the Odiyan Retreat Center... As a volunteer for the past several years, I've been curating the often TSK focused, CCI Facebook page at... https://tinyurl.com/ybyfolcf
