Quote of the Day – May 15 2012

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.”
–Bruce Lee

Tonight seems all about water and reflection, meditation and thought, floating letting things come to the surface. This quote fits the image, The Hanged Man from the Tarot, a card I relate to more often than not. Odin hung himself upside down from the world tree to gain understanding (returned with the Runes better than the runs for sure) Be like water, let come to the surface come including silliness and sorrow…Sorrow for wrongs done this 64 years past and since..silliness because we humans become ridiculous..squabble over silly things and want control…so many people wanting to control so much when what they really seem to need is control of self or at least enough loss of control to flow…like water..
Water goes where it wills and seldom stays, it becomes stagnant that way and indeed my thoughts may slow and even stop but soon the flow continues unhindered…I’ve forgotten how long I’ve been on this tree…I need real eyes to realize–Dancing with my own development –part of the flow i need to let go — i forget my body is there –collecting consciousness in a jar, no it was a door but the door’s ajar or was…I left a note before I came here for my friends– “I hope you don’t mind but while you were away i took your limitations. It didn’t seem like you needed them anymore” — tho some of them couldn’t let them go thus we cling long after we need to…tho perhaps a reason, a season passes and something new begins..it gets cold here at night — I wanted to do something for my friends — I am so grateful for all of them..Lucky to have had so many great things happen and even the hard things, the lessons i’m grateful for too….

So here I’ll hang for as long as I need to and then…well I’m not sure
Blessings, G

Wordplay Soul Flowetry

Light shining out.
illuminating my being
showing a new way home
signal to noise ratio improving
cutting down on mental static
so i can feel what’s coming through
The myth of Entropy
The system is wide open
the light flashes through
illuminating matter
lighting the way
the way is light

My mind, the liar got left behind
thinks you climb a ladder when its easier to fly
I won’t get caught in his traps
I’ve stopped rapping his raps
intellectual’s not sexual and has stopped getting me off
talk to the soul cause the feats won’t listen
the writing of my being trump the pages of the sages and inside i have a compass that always points towards home
If the mob rules then i salute Mab’s wisdom tho i minor in treasures and major in my leisure not seeking pain but pleasure tho joy is where its at
seeking dimensions beyond flat
undressed but not addressed, my potential is essential
watching kids play we move not stay,
the dance goes on tho i may be gone
i travel to unravel and revel tho disheveled
and yet I’m on a level that has been moving up
waking up, not hitting the snooze no more
feeling love that’s universal
joy that’s overflowing
light thats non-reversal
shining through my soul
connecting to my source
glowing with the force
yet one more entity
who’s claiming my identity =)
