    Update on Ken's Health

    Please read this blog entry:

    Here's what i just wrote to the I-I local staff:

    i have seen Ken a few times this past week, the last time was saturday night.  Each visit had completely torn my heart out in a way i have never before felt, seeing Ken in the condition that he was in was honestly one of the most painful (yet luminous) experiences of my life.  Really feeling the bottomless depth of my love and respect for him was so completely overwhelming for me; as it still is. 

    Today when i was at the loft, i was absolutely stunned by the improvement, almost like he had regenerated overnight.  He is still really fucked up, as this blog conveys, and will be rehabilitating for awhile--but i just want to reassure all of us who love Ken so deeply that the difference was absolutely like night and day.  And even in the worst moments that i witnessed throughout this week, you should know that sweet, precious smile was almost always on his beautiful, buddha-full face.
     
    It's gonna take a lot more than a bathroom door to take out our Superman, i assure you... =)

    Re: Update on Ken's Health

    In my experience/observation, so many high consciousness beings have so much difficulty with their physical experience. And yet I've seen time and time again how much grace with which they're able to deal with the maladies. Ken is certainly no exception to this. Can you believe he's smiling in those pictures? Thank you Ken for your shining, radiating example of beautiful Spirit. And thanks to all those who are showing him their compassion, both near and far.

    Love,

    Bryan

    Beer [B] Re: Update on Ken's Health

    Dear All, Dear Ken,

    My heart is torn by the news. By the pictures, my soul is weeping. But my Spirit is shining, not only because that's its job, but also because You reminded me of it. You gave me a permission to engage it back into my life with grace, intelligence and grit. Not being a dimwit, not being a cold-hearted rationalist, but a rational mystic. Thank you for letting me touch the contours of my original face. You are a precious jewel. We all are, and you show me how maps of impossible worlds are being made.

    Thank you Corey for conveying the encouraging news. Integralschism is right in that with the "peak performers" of humanity, those rare souls brave enought to venture out to strange terrains, it sometimes seems like the world is out to get them. Bhagawan Shree Rajneesh (Osho), Ramana Maharshi, G.I. Gurdjieff all had shit happening to them. But they all survived. Some longer than others in the physical form, but in Spirit they all have and will shine forth. Ken Wilber has done so much to show us how important it is to strenghten our beings in body, mind, heart and spirit. For that alone I feel, and hope, and prey, that the unfolding of Spirit will become in all quadrants, levels, lines, states and types a more Beautiful, Happy and Wise event. Adventure is just beginning.

    Strenght and Happiness be with you, Ken.

    Painfully Beautiful
    One of us falls
    We all feel hurt
    We all get closer
    We without a 'them'.

    If we can ease this agony
    By sharing it
    I'll take a slice
    Of such beautiful pain.


    Whole lotta love,
    Peter

    Ken,

    The pictures are heartbreaking and heartwarming.  Thank you for sharing.  Please, take good care.  You truly are "buddha-full" and the world desperately needs your continued insight and compassion.

    Peace, love and healing,

    Chris

    Re: Update on Ken's Health

    Dear Ken,

    Just as I am beginning to get used to the miraculous reality of the fact that you literally can become genuine friends with people all over the world through these Integral playgrounds you have set up for us, I am now astounded at the wonder of how I can feel as if my son, brother, mother or self was hurt very badly by reading some books and a blog and seeing a few pictures. Feel as if I'm gonna come over and beat up that bathroom door-(the LR socio-techno-economic piece of shit!)

    Don't let the pain, at any moment, cause you miss the miracle of all of our collective love, support, healing wishes and gratitude for you; your life right now at this moment and always.

    And as a teacher once said, don't let the grossness of the incident cause you to miss the miracle of it's healing. - and the miracle of the tears that are actually coming out of my eyes right now, while writing this . . . (There goes my masculinity. Leave me alone you fucker!)

    Said a prayer to the Blesed Virgin Mother Mary for you, and will do so again, every day until you are well.

    (And yeah, well, I suppose now I should continue to do that after as well, but who's keeping track?Tongue Tied [:S])

    (I also send consoling waves to all those fashion photographers. The poor sacs.)

    Love to you, who is Always Already and Always so much Love

    Tim

    Re: Update on Ken's Health

    integralschism:

    In my experience/observation, so many high consciousness beings have so much difficulty with their physical experience.



    The Buddha was "beset by demons" when transcending the highest levels.  I have read that he described pain as if his bones were breaking.  Some believe this is what Jesus went through in his 40 days in the desert, only to emerge and have the crap kicked out of him before being tortured to death.

    For Ken, Buddahood or Christ Consciousness must be just around the corner!

    This is a rocky path, indeed.  I'm not anywhere near the level of a high consciousness being...so many shadows...and the pain here is deep enough to drown in at times.  I have to say, it really pisses me off, that damned First Noble Truth:  Suffering.  Fuck suffering!

    How about a little tonglen for KW (even though he amazingly doesn't seem to be suffering in the face of all this pain)?

    Love and Blessings and Peace to All.

    Keith

    Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart. -unknown
