Gain Medium

If it guides you into your own awakening, then make the choice to believe it.

Of Truth & Lies

The truth doesn't need you to believe it; the truth simply is, and it survives whether you believe it or not. Lies need you to believe them. If you don't believe lies, they don't survive your skepticism, and they simply disappear. 


 ~ The Fifth Agreement

White Wave



Give me release
Witness me
I am outside
Give me peace

Heaven holds a sense of wonder
And I wanted to believe
That I'd get caught up
When the rage in me subsides

Passion chokes the flower
Til she cries no more
Possessing all the beauty
Hungry still for more

In this white wave
I am sinking
In this silence

In this white wave
In this silence
I believe

Before I Go

May 17, 2012

Another person I know died tonight
He was a good guy
Someone I liked seeing
He annoyed me sometimes
But also made me laugh
We recently went to a hockey game together
I just saw him two nights ago

Tonight the bar was filled with people
Grieving and drinking
A sea of emotions and energy
I just endured and gave them what they asked for
Waiting for the night to end

Afterwards I had a drink
Sat and talked with my co-worker
Then we went to breakfast...

I've been doing this job for fourteen years
It's a place where everybody knows everybody
This isn't the first time someone close to us has died
It's happened so many times I'm almost used to it
After awhile you stop expecting to see people again
You start wondering when it's going to be you who suddenly doesn't show up one day

It made me think about things tonight
My life, my family, my friends
The places I've been, the beauty I've seen
It made me think about you
How you came into my life
How everything changed
Since the first day I saw you
And felt that flash of recognition in my soul

I don't know when my time is up 
In the end I've already lost it all
If nothing else
I'm grateful for my life
Because I've known your love

Leisure is a form of silence, not noiselessness. It is the silence of contemplation such as occurs when we let our minds rest on a rosebud, a child at play, a divine mystery, or a waterfall.

The music of your life

There's no such thing as a wrong note. It all depends how you resolve it.

 ~ Art Tatum, jazz pianist




Noble Journey

I nurture myself with my path.


Inseparable

Then a woman said, Speak to us of Joy and Sorrow.
     And he answered:
     Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.
     And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.
     And how else can it be?
     The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.
     Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?
     And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?
     When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
     When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
     Some of you say, "Joy is  greater than sorrow," and others say, "Nay, sorrow is greater."
     But I say unto you, they are inseparable.
     Together they come, and when one sits alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.

     Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy.
     Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced.
     When the treasure-keeper lifts you to weigh his gold and his silver, needs must your joy or your sorrow
     rise or fall.

~ Kahlil Gibran

Remembering


Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

And think not you can direct the course of love, for love if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

Each friend

Each friend represents a world in us,
a world not possibly born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.

Doubt


Why is the default position always that things won't work out?

What if you're wrong?

What if you're holding the greatest gift in your hands and you don't even know it?

Why do you doubt your greatness?

The Place That Always Was

"Take only what will fill your heart and that's all you need."
