I have never reached that place where I believe I no longer need to learn new things. Life should be seen as an endless learning event no matter your age. For the person who thinks they have learnt it all has actually learnt nothing.
Through the mist and early morning dew
There i saw a warrior connecting and in tune
With all of the surroundings
One with nature and with time.
With universal consciousness
At peace with the soul
The warrior has fluid motion from the ancients of old.
Handed down through ancestry
It’s about everything they are
Travelling where life takes them
Wandering near and far.
Muscles of steel yet supple wielding weapons like a brush
That a painter weilds when creating art upon an awaiting white canvas.
An eye for every tiny detail
Perception rippling through their own minds eye
Nothing can unbalance them their are a master of their art
Stealthy and nimble movements from light into the dark.
Living life in shadows people rarely know their names
They are myth and they are legendary
Throughout history they abound.
Very little is known about them
Very little can be found.
They live between the realms of life
Silence is their code
They are feared and they are are held in awe
warriors are how they are known.
Rise up and shine
There are times where darkness overwhelms
days where heartache never seems to end
days of thunder
days of rain
days that we think will never be the same
but to banish the darkness you can shine your light
you can rise up
and you can fly
you make a difference in this life
you can be the example of divinity and right
highlighting all of life’s wrongs
stand out as individual amongst the throng
Of all the sheep who just follow the crowd
stand up strong and stand up proud
for you are the love and you are the grace
and this is something no one can take away
for you are the bliss and you are the peace
For you have awoken from your sleep.
Wisdom is earned the not given
The light of life shines brightest in those that understand the true meanings of benevolence, compassion and love. For these are the ones who know true happiness in just being. They are devoid of judgment, hate and anger. They are ones who live life contented with their own inner peace and do not involve themselves in how others perceive them. They appreciate all things and embrace everything in this life of duality like yin and yang. They understand that there needs to be dark as well as love but that there can be good and bad in both. These are the people who fear nothing.
Yesterday is gone
Yesterday was the past
so just let it go
we now face new challenges
that nobody knows
the future is uncertain
so why worry about it
just live in the moment
and appreciate everything.
If we focus on love
and tolerance and peace
forget all the negative stuff
and all the hating
and all come together
no matter colour or beliefs
focus on developing our own inner peace
then things will get better
when we all show respect
and stop making judgements over what to expect
so forget the toxicity
from those who are lost
in this illusory life
we all pay the cost
of believing the the series of thing just not true
question everything you hear look for the proof
and follow your own instincts and synchronicity
and learn to embrace love and light and positivity
for this is the way to find balance in life
be happy and compassionate without pain or strife.
So the Adolph Hitler policy of fascism, blame foreign minorities for taking jobs and houses and built up racial hatereed and xenaphobia has worked for Boris and is working for Trump. How proud we must all be today.
The art of enlightenment is not to achieve solely through practice but to understand through just being. When we try and focus on how to become enlightened we disconnect from self and being. Enlightenment comes through achieving an act of the highest benevolence without even knowing you are doing it and why. You just do it because it was the right and kindest thing to do. Supremely sacrificing self and being in that moment for someone else. It is a form of purest love for another.
Drama and toxicity
Separating ourselves from the drama’s of life that surround us and try and draw us in is a constant battle and avoiding get the toxicity of those people causing that drama is even tougher especially if they are family or close friends but if we can learn to master this then we will find true in strength and inner peace. From that moment on nothing can permeate our spiritual barrier except love.
Cast adrift we are like flotsam
Drifting, floating, sinking to the bottom
Then reaching up and gasping for air
Breaking the surface discovering you there
With a hand out stretched ready to save me
I was drowning but you did not fail me
In my time of need you were right there
Showing me just how much you care
But then I remember how I got here
You pushed me in and held me under
These mind games are freaking me out
Love me or hate me I am lost in doubt
Did you push me just to save me
Is this you exerting control over my psyche
Fearful of you yet scared to lose you
My hero my saviour and yet you abuse me
Love me or hate me tell me the truth
Is this benevolence or sadistic abuse.
Can as pointed out by my dear friend Poet Em (Emily Clapper) be read from the top or from the bottom. This was not by design but nevertheless intriguing to me.
