THE NAVIGATION WITHIN

Life is a maze, a maze of illusion and delusion. The illusion is how life appears to be and the delusion is our belief in the illusion. The maze is everything that exists and all that we experience and all that we must navigate through. All of the physical and psychological realities we perceive is the substance or stuff of the maze. Being a part of the maze is not an option – it just is. Everything must play it’s part. Of foremost importance is to acknowledge that you have a choice in determining where you are going within the maze and with what attitude you will uphold at each moment of your journey. The concepts you perceive are self created, outward influences may sway your attitude but you are solely responsible for you own thoughts, your thoughts create non permanent moments of reality passing from one to the other in a continuous cycle like the waves never ending on the surface of the sea.

I AM THE SEA
 
I am the sea
I am the valley
I am the mountains
I am the vast open sky
We are not separate
We breathe
We drink
We eat
We rise and fall
Changing with the tides
Together
 
 
 
 
 
HEMISPHERES
 
Split in half
Like day and night
Land and water
Severed from the whole
Balancing
Two pieces
Awake and asleep
Conscious and subconscious
Joy and sorrow
Reflecting what we know
In effort to reconnect
 

 

 

BE UNAFRAID

You will be
Disembodied
All will be
Lost
Unfathomable
Pressure
Will besiege
Your essence
Stripped
Atom
From
Atom
Strewn
Galaxies
Apart
Nameless
Memory less
No knowing
Nothing
Be unafraid
Now

 

 

BLISSFUL ABYSS

Regardless
Pathogens follow like conquistadors
Exploiting new ground
As triumphant saints
Declaring
Life is life
Un-judging honesty vibrates
And seams together the continuity fabric

Apparently
Ultimately
One must align themselves
With something
An anchor point to ride the swells
Or be swept away
Washed upon some hostile shore
Consumed by multitudes
Faceted

Then
Settled sounds hum
Textural woven sleeves
Surrender into the slip
Of what is
The blissful abyss beyond
