“There exists only the present instant…

a Now which always and without end is itself new.
There is no yesterday nor any tomorrow,
but only Now, as it was a thousand years ago
and as it will be a thousand years hence.”
[~ Meister Eckhart
13th century Dominican monk & theologian]

About The Author

Preface

[
__
__]

Time stands still when we do.

What’s written in these pages carries a resonance designed to quiet your mind. Dive in. Take it slow. There’s more between the lines than you know.

I’m described as the author of this work and the other books in The Mystical Traveler Series, but I wasn’t their creator as much as their receiver. Their greatest value lies in passing them on.

Welcome.

[“Silence is the language of God,
All else is poor translation.”
~ Rumi, 13th century Sufi mystic and poet]

Unmasked

Beliefs and concepts are shifting sands.

Intellect, intuition -

Trowels in your hands.

Dwarfed by the Vastness

In which you exist,

Let go of what doesn’t persist.

Unmask the one

Who thinks s/he understands

A Creator limited by where s/he stands.

[
__
__]

But A Moment

[
__
__]

In the stillness of the hour,

There may come a moment

Removed from the day,

When things disappear.

Release your fear.

Your path is being cleared.

What you’ve held dear

Isn’t what you think it is.

Theater

[
__
__]

Relinquish the self-image

You’ve so carefully sewn

To please others unknown.

Turn within.

“I want, I must have” will dim.

From that center

A new world will spin.

[
__
__]

[
__
__]

Chances

[
__
__]

Chances are you’re wondering

What this is all for

And how it came about,

Why it is you don’t have more clout.

More vast than you and wiser still

Must the Creator be

Throughout Eternity.

In that Heart of Love

Come souls who believe

In the One who conceives

Who it is you came to Be.

TV Mind

[
__
__]

The televised world comes from those

Who turn outward to create.

Dazzled by the show,

Seeking what does not bestow,

Many fail to glow.

But the day will come

When Bliss will be

What no one will dismiss.

Reclamation

[
__
__]

Reclaim your Divinity

For Eternity.

That’s it.

No frills.

No dogma.

No psychology.

Stay true.

This destiny is meant for you.

Saved For Last

What you’ve held inside

You hoped would arrive

Through someone else’s door.

An instrument for the Absolute,

Play your celestial flute.

What you thought was someone else’s task

Is what you saved for last.

Don’t refer to your past.

This God-given present –

Right here, right now –

Is a Holy blast.

Precious Story

[
__
__]

The most precious story is the one that Love tells.

Match its stride on the path that leads inside.

Remember, too,

This Love’s your due.

Don’t push it aside or trivialize

What it means to you.

[
__
__]

Love Surpassing

[
__
__]

Let it happen.

It’s yours for the taking -

One gift above all -

Living in response to the Call.

Many steps have been taken

To make this gift yours.

Count on Love surpassing all.

Picture Frames

[
__
__]

Life’s not controlled by time,

No more than a painting is

By its picture frame.

Stop racing against it.

Time stands still when you do.

Shake its worldly spell.

You’ll laugh out loud

When you do this well.

Freedom to be is

As precious as

Eternity.

At Heart

[
__
__]

A prayer-filled heart

Steps out of Time

And its physical clime.

Try this and see.

Where you happen to be

Will no longer stir such anxiety.

Remember, too,

The choice you made -

To step into Time unafraid.

“Woe is me!” you say.

“I’ve been betrayed.”

Forget self-pity.

Be joyful and wise.

Let Love transform your current guise.

[
__
__]

Yet To Be

[
__
__]

Remember the choice that

Separated you from Eternity,

That gave you a human form

For the Soul you once were

And the one you will be.

Virtue

[
__
__]

Patience…

A virtue it’s been said,

Even though it remains over your head.

Take heart. Stay tuned.

Love’s about to bloom.

Mine Trust for its incredible thrust.

Let it dispel your fear of doom.

Brilliant Present

[_ _]

If only…

Why can’t I…

When will….

Stop everything -

Every speculative thought,

Every question and phrase.

Take the time to make yourself Mine

And I will give you praise.

 

Who you think you are doesn’t last.

Leave resistance in the past.

Put your heart on the line.

This brilliant Present is yours

In or out of Time.

[
__
__]

Breathe

[
__
__]

When things are difficult -

A challenge on every corner -

Sink into the Self

Disguised by fate.

The world’s show does abate.

Behind the scenes all is well,

Despite spectacles you instigate.

Imagine being happy and free,

The child of a Creator

Who’s a Joy to Be.

Oceans

When you dream of a heavenly world

Filled with oceans of bliss,

Bring the Light from that world into this.

Another Shore

[
__
__]

Don’t succumb to your favorite tune -

The litany of ‘yes’ to what’s less than best.

Turn from anxiety and stress.

Neglect fear clawing at your door.

Swim to the Other Shore.

Say Yes to your Greater Self,

Your sentinel of Truth,

Your one true Home.

Forever adored,

Let Peace restore.

Want Peace?

[
__
__]

You say you want peace.

We say you want to escape suffering.

What you crave is temporary at best.

Give self-pity a rest.

Exercise your mettle.

Peace and Freedom -

Gifts from the Divine -

Are yours to bless.

[
__
__]

h1={color:#000;}.

Hush

[
__
__]

Hush now.

Don’t be afraid.

There’s much taking shape.

What do you wish to put on trial?

Desire emboldens truth or denial.

Examine your path to its very end.

Choose wisely, my friend.

Light does bend.

Overdue

All paths lead Home,

No matter the story you have grown.

Dissemble lies you thought were true.

Freedom from this illusion is long overdue.

[
__
__]

Commotion

[_ _
__]

Evolution sparks such commotion

To stir your e-motions,

Until you become

Love in motion.

Aflame

[
__
__]

Creativity is an act.

Do your job as though it’s fact,

So what’s in doubt arrives intact.

The path may twist and turn.

Your mind will, too,

But don’t relent, resist or spurn.

Dive into the Flame that does not burn.

Pact

[
__
__]

When reasons are hard to find,

We point to your mind.

The key lies within you,

Not in front or behind.

What many call destined,

We call a pact -

The one you made before

This life in fact.

Yes, DNA and genes do prove

What you need to make your move,

But you’re not bound to any one remove.

You travel timelines and design lifetimes.

While only one seems real,

It’s not your only life to lose.

[
__
__]

[“I am not this body.
I am not this skin.
I am the soul that lives within.”
~ Rumi]

[
__
__]

Cherish

Remember the treasure you came to render -

Your Oneness with God, the Great Unknown -

Not the arms of another or their measure.

Cherish Freedom as though it’s gold.

It’s more important than you know.

Life

[
__
__]

This life’s a gift!

Don’t think so?

That’s why you feel adrift.

Come to the Well and imbibe.

Take adversity in stride.

The lonely road is not your abode.

Re-Cognize your Kin

To ensure your win.

Rebirth

The healing you seek lies within.

No matter the form -

Illness or injury -

Make coming Home the norm.

Don’t hide or equivocate.

Step up to the plate.

You know the way.

Remember, too,

Love gave birth to You.

Say its name.

[
__
__]

Reboot

[
__
__]

Feel completely

Til you love freely.

Take this to heart

When you feel apart.

Love your way to a totally new start.

The Means

The trees in the forest are many

And may dim the light.

This is true.

Even so, the Light everlasting

Shines its blessed rays on you.

Let it illumine your mind.

Become the Truth you’ve longed to find.

Without Ambition

[
__
__]

Center without ambition.

Move without being driven.

Receive without having striven.

Love will arrive unbidden.

Mirrors

How did you come to believe

The world’s a scary place?

Life, a battle for survival?

The world mirrors how you feel,

But don’t mistake feelings

Rippling across the pond,

Thoughts that taunt

Or fears that haunt,

For Reality.

Detach from what you think is so.

True Being lies much deeper,

Beneath, behind and within

Appearances that you know.

[
__
__]

Wedded

[
__
__]

Too much…

Too little…

Wait and see…

There’s always enough

When you trust implicitly.

Wed the Divine within.

Let go the scarcity you keep in tow.

What’s next will far outweigh

What you thought was gold.

[
__
__]

Never Alone

[
__
__]

Here we come, my friend,

Bearing words not yet done.

Let this be known:

At no time have you ever been alone.

What you fear is your own creation.

Give this work the chance

To enhance your joyful celebration.

[
__
__]

[
__
__]

Words Alight

[
__
__]

These words are vessels

For insights not yet named,

Sparking changes not yet tamed,

All to illuminate our cause.

Do not pause

Or wait for neon lights.

Hold high the torch,

A messenger-in-training

On the first of many flights.

[
__
__]

The End

[
__
__]

Your end is the end of Time.

Loosen its grip on your mind.

There’s nothing to beat or possess,

Only the thought Death’s yours to best.

Welcome the end of life as it’s been.

That’s your key to freedom

From a world limited from within.

[
__
__]

[
__
__]

Ashes

[
__
__]

Ashes to ashes,

Dust to dust.

Leave nothing behind

Except your love.

[
__
__]

What Buddha Knew

[
__
__]

The Buddha knew

How the soul within stills the din

To abide in peace among its kin.

In this way the soul outgrows

The world it knows.

As above, so below.

Take it slow.

[
__
__]

Every Living Thing

[
__
__]

The impetus for evolution

Comes from within,

Not only without.

Whether or not you’re devout,

Loving every living thing

Will win out.

[
__
__]

Straddle Time

Your cells straddle Time.

To change your clime

Loosen your mortal coil.

In this fashion

You can pave the way

To heal your dis-sease and body-mind.

Praise for The Mystical Traveler Series

[
__
__]

“Fawn Moran is further confirmation of the saying that the gods are not illiterate… even when they speak in an esoteric key. The poems gathered in her Mystical Traveler series were received in states of silent ecstasy, much like certain writings of the feminine mystics of the Middle Ages. Not only do they bear the marks of that heterodox strain of Christianity—they uncannily whisper of a mysterious, divine presence so close as to be within, even as it is beyond everything in this world—but they do so in a voice influenced by an eclectic, lifelong spiritual itinerary.

A longtime HIV activist, Fawn founded during the height of the AIDS crisis the first publishing house producing educational literature for the clinics that were ground zero in the struggle for the lives of gay men. After watching her friends slowly die from the disease and having her own unresolved traumas rise again, she went on an inner quest to know herself that brought her face to face with death before leaving her transformed: serene, less attached, and, dare I say, a bit wise. I encountered her while doing ethnographic research on channeling, and came to trust her discerning, profound perspective, which can be heard throughout these little books. Those who know they are lost can find some light here, along with an invitation to not fear the unknown paths ahead.”

Peter Skafish, Anthropologist, Laboratoire d’Anthropologie Sociale, Collège de France

 

“‘Perhaps the primal cause…Of all That Is…Is the Awareness… Within all Creation.’ If those words interest you, this collection is for you. Fawn Moran has managed to distill so much wisdom into phrases that open doors that we thought were closed. Reading her words, or better still, reading them out loud, brings a resonance in the heart that remains. The distillation has clearly come from many hours of plumbing her own depths. This is not a collection of ideas—it’s a collection of Truth revealed. Try it. You might end up becoming what you were seeking.“

Mary-Margaret Moore, Spiritual teacher, workshop leader,
counselor and author of the Bartholomew books.

[_ _

“In her preface to EVER DEEPER: NOTHING LESS WILL DO, Fawn Moran tells us that “words surfaced with a cadence…all their own,” and some “took the form of letters from an unseen friend.” In reading them, she counsels, “It’s the resonance you’re after.” Indeed…the best way to engage this work for most of us is to find a quiet space and read a phrase or more every so often, to reflect and let the words reverberate over a time frame grounded in the now.

 

The words in EVER DEEPER are subtle. Thus, your mind should help you create the space to read and listen, after which you’re advised to set it aside (count on the mind resisting). While EVER DEEPER will carry some across the bridge into the land of non-duality—perhaps in a blink—it will surely place those who approach it with an open heart solidly on the path AND catalyze the journey in small or great ways for those already headed in that direction.”

Robert Black, a learning specialist for middle & high school students, and adjunct writing professor at NYU

 

“Every once in a while, a collection of verse is written that has a universal meter — a purity and simplicity that transcends cultures and speaks to everyone, regardless of nationality, sex, creed, or any other differentiator. ‘ONLY THIS’ by Fawn Moran is just such a work…Five stars for this fine collection of verse, and a heartfelt thanks to the author for committing such sincerity and insight to paper.”

Don Sloan, a former journalist with a major daily newspaper,
is a full-time indie book reviewer. He loves to write, read, drink good wine, and take short naps in front of his fireplace
in the North Carolina mountains.

 

 

Acknowledgements

There are people who influence us so profoundly that our lives change in ways unforeseen, and for the better. Mary Margaret Moore is one of those people. If it weren’t for the time we spent in each other’s company in New Mexico, the books in The Mystical Traveler Series would not have been written. She is one of those people who ‘catalyzes’ those of us on the path, and sometimes even stops us in our tracks. How fortunate I was and still am!

 

Then there are those who I’ve never met – figures like Gandhi – who light the path by example, whose actions and words changed the way the world works. They attract admirers and students for decades, perhaps even centuries. That’s how transformative their work and insights are. Mother Teresa was one of those people, who has since been made a saint, and whose legacy lives on in the body of her order – Missionaries of Charity – and the example they’ve set.

 

Then there are the teachers who give until we get it – Gangaji, Adyashanti, Mooji – who, tirelessly and with humor, devote themselves to the enlightenment of us all.

 

Thank you!

 

About The Author

[
__
__]

I lived in the heart of the Castro district in San Francisco when the AIDS epidemic mushroomed around me and my family, and watched young men vanish from the neighborhood. The fact that one of my closest friends could die because of this epidemic moved me to act. Deeply concerned about patients’ rights and safety, I volunteered at the San Francisco AIDS Foundation in 1983 and ended up in their new marketing department, where I helped produce and distribute AIDS educational materials throughout the US. In 1990 I started a small publishing and distribution company with a friend and colleague—Timothy McGinn—who died of AIDS four years into our venture. I soldiered on until 1999. I moved to Sonoma County in 2000 and started working for the local AIDS network, where I managed a residential care facility for people with AIDS until its funding ended. Afterward I served as an Executive Assistant. The epidemic steered the course of my life for 22 years.

I’m now working to end homelessness, if not in the US as a whole, then in the bucolic California countryside in which I live, where several thousand people each year become homeless, many for years at a time.

 

In 1995, I founded the One World Peace Foundation, an online educational resource to foster progressive world change and human understanding based on an unshakeable respect for truth, peace and freedom. Do visit our website.

These writings point to heights you may long to reach, not remembering they live within you and call for your embrace. As the book says, "In the stillness of the hour, there may come a moment removed from the day when things disappear. Release your fear. Your path is being cleared. What you've held dear isn't what you think it is."
