On Acceptance

Accept EVERYthing wholly.

Only in the present moment.

Never Ever Forever.

Then

CHANGE IT!

P.S. Happy Yoga Day! May this day inspire moments of awareness for you.

After the Storm

zz2

Storm raging
(Nature choosing it’s rhythm,
seasonal rains or a tragic disaster)

I watch through curtains flying in
Rains and winds howling
There is destruction
There is chaotic flurry
Broken homes empty
Yet sky so pretty

Storm raging
(Human mind losing it’s rhythm,
everyday upset or a traumatic event)
I feel with mind closing in
Emotions and overthinking
There is breathstruction
There is confused fury
Broken dreams hearty
Yet hopes so many

The storm passes away
(After the storm of both kinds)
Everything is at standstill
Eerie quiet and also disarray
World as you know it, is no more
Some changes sting to the core
Rearranges what you see and believe
All that you think will help relieve

Drop into the blanks
Collect the right thoughts
To build a new dream
Collect the right planks
As if to build a new home

Step at a time, carved to lead you there
New ways to discover waiting where
Don’t rush, the road is wet and slippery
Take time to scan the landscape
Courage and surrender required so very
Tread with faith, there is no escape

…With Love

Give  IT  time …with love
Give what  IT  takes …with love
Give  IT  fiercely …with love
Give  IT  all …become love

Give  IT  space …with love
Give  IT  up …with love
Don’t give up on  IT  …just love
Watch  IT come back …with all the love!

Time and Again

Time and again
Find myself in insistence
Of proving my existence
Through experiences and relations
Often  running wild with emotions
This unrelenting persistence
To find soothing sustenance

Said the great poet
Close your eyes, fall in love
Try that with my mind quiet
With each heartbeat, seeds I sow
‘I am’ ‘I am’ I am’
Simply Being at best
Is a forever quest

The Pause

Relentless it is surely
Either Life itself or else its me!
Any opportunity to pause
Makes me ponder its cause
As if there is wrongness
In any kind of nothingness

The moments of pure joy
Become so fleeting
Because of eternal wanting
The perfection of manifestation
Becomes so overwhelming
Can freeze all functioning
Can make all thinking stall
As if floored at having it all
Its essence then lost in more yearning

The tiresome and tireless crusades
To scrape the facades
All the work put in until now
To get to our truth somehow
Shows up as the present-life landscape

The line that marks the world Inner and Outer
Begins to continually blur
Finally revealing soul to soul relations
A mark of worldly or unworldly perfection
Yet lingers that sense of limitations
As if being victim of conditioning & conditions
Is a more comfortable position

If you really look into the pause
Take time to digest and take stock
You will find exactly all that
You have earnestly sought

Quit being busy looking at what was lost
As if there was a cost
You know very well now
You ask and you receive somehow
Once again you set sail
Knowing what to attain without fail …
