Smoke in Trees



















SMOKE IN TREES

Roots entwined
To make one mind.
Once an old wise soul,
Now a dark and gaping hole.
Relentless flame, so hot and bright,
Burning through both day and night.
Now gasp and choke,
With ash and smoke.

Her roots reach deeply whisper "Why?"
While branches stretch with love to sky.
Gently, softly, touch her skin, 
Shocking, sadness flowing in.
Still, does she softly say "Let go?"
Can it be? I don't know, I don' t know.

I've always sought relief in trees,
Perhaps now this they need from me.

Heart full of lonely and greedy demands

 I am a man with a heart that offends with its lonely and greedy demands.  In a manner of speaking, I'm already dead.

-Sufjan Stevens


MAGIC


Walking along in the forest, I felt a cool breeze on my face and arms, as beams of sunlight pierced through tree branches and reached down to gently touch the pine needle covered path below. As I walked on, slowly, I became aware of a faint, low humming sound that seemed to eminate from the shadows of trees and shrubs off to the side of the trail. Quietly, I stopped to listen and the sound stopped. Slowly, I started walking again, and the sound soon resumed.  

I walked around along the path as it turned around a corner, and I continued hearing the sound, yet still there was nothing that I could see, and the low frequency of the sound made it difficult to pinpoint location.

The Game

Breathe free
To See
Power in Love
Brilliant light above

Growing
Flowing
Time stops going
All is glowing

Slow, then Fast
No Past
No End
Still, let's pretend

9 Lives

If it's curiosity that killed the cat....

Then it's acceptance of death that brought him back!

Progress

You must go slow to go fast.

- Roberto Assagioli

Mission Statement

To create reality with intention, imagination, intuition, and patience.
To maintain a sense of connection; to self, to others, and to the universe.
To be the eyes and ears of the universe, reflecting its beauty.
To witness and facilitate this process in others who wish to pursue it, without diminishing one's own sense of connection.
To expect guidance, everyday.

On Heartbreak and Pain

"When the heart breaks for what it has lost, the spirit rejoices for what it has found".
- Sufi Proverb

Say I Am You

I am the dust that floats in bright sunlight,
I am the sun, too, burning so bright.
 
Say to the dust, stay, and to the sun, keep
Moving in circles, wake us to light.
 
I am the mist of sweet early morning,
And the soft breathing, when evening is born.
 
I am the wind in swaying green branches,
taking my chances, as surf's pounding shore.
 
I am the tall mast, I am the deep keel,
Rudder and bowsprit, helmsman and wheel.
 
Now I am also the perilous reef,
the snares and delusions, that bring them to grief.

Human Spirtuality

"The stunning paradox of human spiritual maturity is that, as we become one with all creation, we also at the same time become completely and uniquely ourselves." T. Yeomans
