If you don’t feel powerful and important, it’s because you have not realized who you really are–yet! Whether you know it or not, you wear a kingly crown. Continue reading “If you don’t feel powerful, you don’t know who you are.”
Walking amidst flowers,
her mind set upon the future and past,
never upon the exquisite bloom or fragrance.
Looking straight into my eyes,
she’s not here. Continue reading “Ghosts”
It’s harder for me to hear, though
my hearing is perfectly fine.
Words, speech, rhetoric, proclaimed in our
Homes, schools, churches, media and lives,
Filled with anger, pain and rage,
Endless debating, name calling,
Attacking, yelling, shouting,
Drama and diatribes. Continue reading “Harder to Hear”
Time Stood Still
Friends tell me we met more than half a million minutes ago.
But I noticed, before a few seconds had hardly passed,
That time was standing still.
In its place, a merged continuum of
Tender touches, love, kindnesses and gifts of presence
All indescribably nuanced, existed. Continue reading “Time Stood Still”
I learned two new Yiddish words today–schlemiel and schlimazel. The schlemiel is the one who is always spilling the soup, the screw-ups if you will, while the schlimazel is the one that the soup always falls on. Our country has its fair share of schlemiels in government, industry and media who are constantly screwing up and making schlimazels of us all! They spill the soup and it lands on us. The ones that come immediately to my mind are big oil, talk radio, Apple and Microsoft, Wal-Mart and education. Continue reading “Schlimazels of us all!”
Winning in this 3-D world keeps us here. The more we win, the more enmeshed we become to a perfectly rigged system designed to more tightly hold us in place. You cannot beat this system–but you can transend it.
This Game of Thrones world is commonly seen as an epic battle of good versus evil where the good people are supposed to actively work to overthrow the evil ones. In this worldview, there are three basic classes of people. The first seeks to rule and control by using any and all means available to obtain absolute power. The second class resists these ruthless people. They seek a more enlightened and egalitarian society by upholding societal traditions through the rule of law. The last are those who try and stay out of the fight by letting whoever is in charge at the moment have their way. I would propose a fourth class of people–those who see the truth of this world, expose its darkness to others, then learn to transcend it all through spiritual ascension.
