Go Ahead

Go ahead, lose control. What’s controlling you anyway. Yes, you’re okay. Yes, you have resistance to doing something you don’t do very often and that takes you somewhere you aren’t used to going. Accept this is what is happening now and just be with it. Maybe you’ll even enjoy yourself! Let the universe in and let the light shine on you fully. Be the fully enlightened moon; if only for a second. That is forever. That is real love and life.

Being Real

Well, she did it
She told the truth
as best she could
And with the strength
She has a sense of
And is learning to be
Meanwhile enjoying life
Seeing just how exciting
Being real is
The world is nothing
But full of realness
Everywhere I turn
Everything I learn
Everyone I talk to
All in the One
One in the All
Through my life
Life through me
Coming awake from inside
I don’t want to stop
the momentum.

The Center Here

Here are the beautiful people
Is Italy really different?
Why would I desire that
understanding?
She looks so young with
water pouring from the
lion’s mouth.
In this moment I am
clear with what I want.
And I choose to focus on
other than myself.
Instead I take in the senses.
Is it so unusual to be one?
One alone.
One in all – all one?
Not more; not less.
I enjoy the burnt out bulbs
and bubbling grapes.
Do I exude the sadness
of all souls?
I am only the center here.

These moments I find myself in between living an incredibly full and many times busy life. I want to be less busy and more full. Because moments like this come few and far between. I need to be able to watch listen and reflect upon all possible aspects of life my own and not my own. Today I notice good church-going folks out to a family lunch. I notice the weekend workers in service industry trying to keep up with the madness. I notice things I would do differently, and I notice my own judgment of them. Then, I notice that I am grateful to be on my side of green fields, and these things are nothing more than an extension of my own worry and distraction. I want to get to that pain-point inside where everything flows and creates the emotional river I ride each day. Because, when I go there, I can get off the boat, jump in the cool water, and swim around naked and free.

GO!

GO! And so I went.
TRUST! And so I do.
I waited, and I pushed, I listened, and I gave my 2 cents.
I struggled and continue to struggle. I move forward despite the obstacles (and/or the obstinate,) and I dare to see what is on the other side of this. Hard work, persistence, resilience and for what? I’m not sure, but am curious enough to see where it goes. There’s bound to be clean and clear and free in the light, right? Maybe no end to the tunnel but instead, moments of clarity and rest.

Flying with crows
asymmetrical views
one gets a crumb and the other takes it away
it wasn’t a great crumb anyway
Trees flash the light under this
great disco ball
Leaves are dancing
and the picnic table is vacant
I am warm in my car
can I stay another hour or so?
I would that afternoon siesta…
but lamplight in the corner
tells me this is not your home
you must depart from this world
back into yours
As I reluctantly come to a close
I go dutifully
returning to the place I must be
until I can be in the next
where I will finally relax

Life and love how interesting the time
goes how well conflicting yet true
and so many openings to the “you” or “thou”
I feel one way then it changes
I think another way and direction changes
yet again like so many ways within the wind
and I think of flight as if I might
catch a good current or a strong headwind
then I’m on a ship floating through clear then murky waters
elevated escalated to captain and reluctant leader
contemplating the underlying cause
now I’m flying again in the spacious water of the air
wondering about heat and depth and light
my might originating from dark matter and black holes
how far will this all go in my lifetime
rebellion without a crime and soul sublime
like silver the taste in my mouth
always reminds me of you
