an Embrace of change

Change is inevitable, as the only constant in life, it is always there. At times, it’s not the easiest thing to embrace and if left for too long one may be forced into the situation via crisis – forcing your hand and having you take the plunge…

Yet there is always a choice. On the path of destiny there is the choice of freewill – if destiny however demands a change, the repercussions of not adhering to that, in which ever way or form the change is asked of you, will only be to your own detriment.

It is within these moments of life that the true glimmers of hope, love and light become the brightest as they are your beacons, the embers glowing fiercely in the dark. It is thus insurmountable for you to believe in staying where you are is the best recourse. Hope, however intangible it may be – is our ally, our friend.

Embrace the change, embrace the moment – let it flow through you, altering, clearing and releasing all that there is to be purged, transmuted and transformed. The cascading effect being that new life vitality can flow through you anew, unrestrained and unblocked by that which was hindering the flow – what was being asked of you to be released, to be changed.

As you step onto the new path, looking towards the horizon and the glow of a rising sun, you understand and know that the change was required and that this is now your new path to walk, the path of destiny, the path of your life and your light. Embracing the being that you are, allowing to be, to love and to live a life – that is a gift endowed to you.

“Life is a series of moments, all leading to an end. Yet is it the choices we make within those moments that leads us to the truth of what is ‘an end’. And our belief – that which colors and shapes moments – is what propels us towards that state of being, of knowing: infinitely, intrinsically, limitlessly”

Our Life

I breathe the bliss of tomorrow, standing on the laughter of today
Guided by the whispers of yesteryears – those that aught never say nay
Flourishing in ecstasy, bequeathed to all
All righteous, all worthy – who dare say that to the shall not given?

Prosperous we venture forth – making paths where none have tread
This is our virtue, or glamour – that which makes our heart sing
To guide those who have lost their way, to offer them the salvation which they seek.

Follow us, my brothers and sisters – our eternal kin
Let us carry the cripple, help the sick, together we stand on our escapade.
We shall seize the future, that which is ours to take
In Glory
In Love
In Gratitude
Bringing hope to all, for some have none.

We shall shed the light where darkness prevails – we pierce the eternal fear
Be in bliss with us, for all is and all shall be
Together, in harmony – we stand untouched by that which we cannot see

The world that I once knew

I stood in the heart of the world

And I was aware

The wind danced around my ears, whispering stories of distant lands.

Green fields that ran out far ahead of me. When Summer came – how she painted it in colors and fragrances that overpowered my soul

I heard echoes of the great trees, of how they moved and swayed, always keeping watch and providing.  Stretching up towards the heavens – unwavering great beacons in the sky, they welcomed all to their warm embrace.

The wind carried to me the call of creatures, simple and small – their song filled my heart and warmed my soul.  A mother’s soft call for her young to return to the den, parents clamor as they saw their fledglings take flight.  Cries from sirens of the ocean reverberated through me and soothed my soul.

I stood in the heart of the world and I felt the wind change.
Time was approaching fast, and humans were on their way.

I stood in the heart of the world

The ground beneath me burnt my feet, the soft grass grew into concrete stones
The beacons who welcomed me home grew bigger and brighter, became stronger and harder – but their warmth was no longer.
The call which once filled my heart became a drone made by that which is not alive, the emotion of a single objective.

I stood in the heart of the world that I did not recognize or understand
It did not matter where my gaze fell – my soul cried out as it did not know

The sky, the sky, oh it’s you who I still know
You have not forsaken the love that I have always known
But even then still, I see the traces of sorrow hidden in your eyes.
Your tears no longer bring joy to my soul

I stood in a world that is no longer a world
And the only way for to me understand
Was to forget,
To forget the world which I once had known

Eruption

the piercing silence calls my name

it echoes through my body touching every part of me that lies dormant

reverberating through me, expanding molecules, awakening feelings and electrifying my soul

from inside me it starts to burn, it starts to cascade and flow

igniting, it eradicates all that should not be known

erupting, in an explosion paramount to the creation of all

every part of what is me sings to the song of ultimate flow

pulsing out of me, in waves of uncontrollable joy and passion

i beam the light of unequivocal expansion, understanding and joy

nothing remains but the purity and sanctity of heart

expanding, i grow

i give to all that which they would need know

all revealed in the synergetical flow

this is now my life, it has consumed me and now i am whole

embracing the evermore consciousness, the divinity which now rushes out of me

this i remind you now, the truth about being free

unconstrained i float in the revere of existence

my flames beckoning to thee

step out into the light of uncontrollable joy

and embrace your true reality.

Mother Gaia’s Love and Remembrance

I am the hand that guides leafs back down to their mothers embrace
It is with my warm kiss that the green ones flourish in colors of simple splendor and joy
With tears, my body heaves and sighs, releasing the pain and bring forth new life to all
Whispers heard and echoed through my children, I ask only for you to hear my call

I pulse, I move, I shudder and shake
I explode in passions beyond the measure of any manmade ideas.
Growing, glowing, expanding in all forms, shapes, sizes and thought
I reverberate forth into every part of who you are, who you think you are, who you feel you are.
Flooding your senses, filling your body with a realization not new to you.  Allowing you to embrace the everafter and evermore.

See my hands holding you strong, feel my heart beating underneath your feet.  Understand my love with the kiss I give each day.  Listen to my words when they are whispered to you between the lost seconds of your mind.  This is the reality that we live in, this is the moment we are found in now – cultivate that moment, understand its purpose and your objective within it.  But never forget where you are, never forget the gift of beauty that has been bestowed upon you.

Tiptoe on the chilly water streams running through lost valleys, scrape the soft tops of snow covered mountains hidden in a winter’s embrace.
Caress the supple leaves found in the density of greens and browns, smell the golden grains of a world filled with thousands of accumulate forgotten dreams and hopes.
Feel the colors of a kaleidoscopic painted field, hear the smells as they move through your body touching your inner most heart.  Understand the colors as they fill your sight, blurring the pre-conceptualized construct that has been given to you by society.

Hold out your hand, let me take it in mine – feel how I hold you softly in my tender embrace.  I am here for you, I have always kept you in my heart.

If you understand this, if you allow it to enter your being, to  enter your mind and heart, to enter the very sanctum of your soul – if you allow this expression of love beyond the fathoming capability of a human mind, then you shall

EXPLODE

Your body will come alive with every possible prospect, for there are no limits in this.
Your mind shall surrender to will of your heart, relinquishing its desire for control over the actions predefined by fate and destiny

And the heart, it shall connect with every single point of consciousness, it will expand beyond the measurable state of now and then.  Divinity will flow forth, streaming, flooding, cascading in emotions unequivocal to anything you have every thought is possible.

The unity
The embrace
The surrender to the flow of ever love, faith, trust and hope
I am one with all, as all is one with me.
I thank my mother Gaia for Her love, that She sends to me in an unwavering act – never to cease or diminish over time.
In this I find the light of my heart, in this I find the truth of what will ever be.

I give to all, as they give to me

Holding life within me, exuding love out of me, vibrating light on every dimension and every plane.  I am all of existence, I am found in every single space, time, place and thought.

When Great Trees Fall

One of the most beautiful and striking poems I have ever come across, enjoy!

 

When Great Trees Fall
by Maya Angelou

When great trees fall,
rocks on distant hills shudder,
lions hunker down
in tall grasses,
and even elephants
lumber after safety.

When great trees fall
in forests,
small things recoil into silence,
their senses
eroded beyond fear.

When great souls die,
the air around us becomes
light, rare, sterile.
We breathe, briefly.
Our eyes, briefly,
see with
a hurtful clarity.
Our memory, suddenly sharpened,
examines,
gnaws on kind words
unsaid,
promised walks
never taken.

Great souls die and
our reality, bound to
them, takes leave of us.
Our souls,
dependent upon their
nurture,
now shrink, wizened.
Our minds, formed
and informed by their
radiance,
fall away.
We are not so much maddened
as reduced to the unutterable ignorance
of dark, cold
caves.

And when great souls die,
after a period peace blooms,
slowly and always
irregularly. Spaces fill
with a kind of
soothing electric vibration.
Our senses, restored, never
to be the same, whisper to us.
They existed. They existed.
We can be. Be and be
better. For they existed.
