Words for Warren 1930-2009

Warren & Suzanne Addicott, Ashland OR

"Some words from Warren's memorial, there were many beautiful things said and sung for him, but his words are without a doubt the most beautiful and wise of the many words."
- S.W., Ashland

I welcome silence
In it beneficent presence
I release myself from
the tentacles of mind and thought
to welcome the moment that is now
the awareness is of presence
that ecstatic state of being
in which there is no separation

This state of being
Can not be described or transmitted
It is beyond the reach of words
Memory of this experience
May fade and blur with time
Yet it is ever-welcoming, ever-available
To those who would surrender
the seductive pleasures of thought
And it's judgements and projections
Into the silence,
The timeless moment that is now

Warren Addicott
