Transform Daily

 

“Everything in your life is there as a vehicle for your transformation.
Use it!”
— Ram Dass

 

Travelling this road of becoming
accompanied by the spirits of change
No constants, no restraints
except that we cannot remain in place
Let the spirits guide the way
the shadows show the wyrd
and the spiders weave each strand in place
We break all conventions
as we shift and shine
brilliant and serpentine
evolving, becoming anew
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

Friendship Lab

 

“Don’t let people’s scars distract you from their smiles.”
— John Maurer

 

A few of my friends who have been roommates for awhile came to me separately for advice on how to deal with each other. Their friendship appeared to be the kind that we humans choose unconsciously because we need to have a funhouse mirror of certain combinations of our qualities held up to us to see and deal with. This in my experience happens when our introspective nature’s become blocked. The things that draw us into these relationships tends to be the qualities that we share that we enjoy. Problems arise most often, it seems when qualities we dislike or don’t fully understand about ourselves come into play. I could see that this most likely was the case with my friends but could only point out the edges to them. Neither wanted to realize the gifts they were giving each other and themselves by illuminating how they dealt or didn’t with their shadow selves. Things escalated to the point where they forgot why they had become friends in the first place. No doubt they will each draw into their lives people with similar qualities that they will have to deal with until they get the lesson. Life’s funny that way.
Blessings, G

The Change Wave

 

“Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.”
— Anaïs Nin

 

Riding the Change Wave
until I settle down
knowing that the next thing
won’t be the last I’ve found
content to know
that none of this will last
this is but a moment
and its heading for the past
the people you know
become those you’ve known
and the town never stays the same
Your hair will be different
your identity fades
you might not even keep your name
Riding the Change wave
it will come round again
nothing’s too stable
we lose a few and then we win
but I do know that that’s how
I choose to live
changing from day to day
giving what I have to give
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

To Dream of the Sky

 

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
― Leonardo da Vinci

 

There are all kinds of things that after you do them once, you do everything possible for the chance to do it again. Flying for me was one of those. I love being in the air no matter the mode of transportation. Certain drug experiences have been like that too. Having once tasted them you look forward to experience that taste of reality being more fluid than you heretofore believed (or so I’ve been told.) Mystical experiences have been much like that to me as well. Not that I have had many but each time I want to feel that way again. So we strive for the taste of the sky and when we land, we try to keep our new understandings within as we look up, ever up.
Blessings, G
