Quote of the Day – July 2 2012

““The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.”
― Jim Morrison

I am the rewritten song
taken from a melody
written long ago
adapted for modern times
charged with modern crimes
yet totally my own.


I am the movie
based on a book
taken from a legend
told around a long ago campfire
yet still myself
no matter how many changes ensue.

Doggerel and Water Meetings

Learning, Burning Churning, Churning Butter, Churning knowledge losing the curds in the whey you move so fine
the line is drawn, dawn, rising son with not a cloud in sight

Thinking synoptically, synoptical thoughts
making connections, networking, net working?
no then out in the sound

meditate, contemplate, see what rises to the surface
the cream? back to churning learning
stirring up consciousness”

Beach Meeting by G A Rosenberg

Surfing Emotional Currents; Reaching for Perspective

Endlessly fascinating
in a solipsist way
sharing my thoughts with shadows
loving the lives they play
at peace with myself or am I
content to search, knowing
i may never find
elephants definition owing
what part I have grabbed in the blind

still if i don’t trust answers
new questions always occur
i laugh at my endless reasoning
yet will always listen to yours

I hunger for perspectives
A fractal shape i’ve never seen
even if smoke and mirrors
meaning i may glean

and yet at night
I feel lonely, tired, sad
sometimes a bit frustrated
more than a little mad

this emotional tidal current
catches me in its spin
caught up in the torrent
seeking calm within

and so i reach out to
and find you shadows there
you reflections of my being
help me conquer fear

together we travel on
we myriad tricks of light
we particles of existence
illuminating eternal night…

–G A Rosenberg

Metaphysical Rambling- I left My Meter Running

The spirit soars
The soul compells
but in the end
the ego tells
tells what?
Can I tell my left-hand from my right
and does my direction matter?
Teachers stand in all directions
offering offerings
light to show my chains
making me see
torturing me
setting me free?
Gnosis pizza on the menu
Eat a slice and release
the indwelling spirit
I guess we’re all gnostic pizza at that
but will we be delivered on time?
The left-hand knows
what the right is doing
but vice-versa
and which way lies the diamods?
God is shooting craps in the corner
for universal stakes
the dice are loaded
but to leave
you have to play as you go
Grab hold of the wisdom snake
he’ll pull you through
At each level leave a bit more
of your soul behind
It’s getting hot so jacket off
transcend that which you know…..
and know that you transcend
