poem 1

any dream
you choose to dream
can be the thing
you think it to be
it already is
and always has been
so don’t even think
about it

poem 2

has to be
something
or nothing
ever was
but every thing
is some thing
no matter what
it does
making this just
another thing
the lesson learned –
do not cling
to any thing


it could be true
that words are useless
and nothing can be said
that really means
anything
beyond what I see
or what you think
will be
it could be just a dream
it could just be
a fantasy
nothing can be said
about it
you are the things
you see
silhouettes
upon the screen
it could be everything


do something
or not
be ready to move
when moved
and sleep
to dream


discharged
released
let go
pushed out
for a shout
gone through
the window
where is her
dream
of gracious
or spacious
are both the same
when put together
we get to the start
light as a feather
your heart
is one part


Having the desire to live a spiritual life can be a weird thing to deal with. You start to have these random realizations every now and then. This possibly comes from reading the works of spiritual teachers, studying various religious teachings, or sitting in a sort of zen daze. So you’re taking in all this new information and being exposed to new perspectives, and these insights start to come about. One of the tricky realizations is that desire itself needs to be let go. So you really shouldn’t even have a desire to live a spiritual life in the first place, since all desire should be released. That’s a weird issue. However, a good thing to come and help with this is the realization that all life is spiritual, so you’re already living a spiritual life, there’s no way not to. Well, that makes things easy. I’ll use the blog here to talk more about these things sometimes. Please feel free to share any insights of your own.


When you accept
responsibility
for your suffering
you realize
that you create
your own pain
you begin to see
that you also create
from yourself
your own joy
your own bliss
your own heaven
your own enlightenment
in all the myths
You are the Savior


oh, where did she go
slipped away out the window
as a weed grows
the need shows
and pulls along
wherever it goes
heaven forbid
you should know
having taken note
of the latest
blow
