If Someday Never Comes

 

“You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.”
— John Green

 

I used to know
that someday I’d be happy
all the problems I had
would be gone
and joy would reign
No matter how bad things got
someday they’d be better
yet I found myself drowning
and crushed by my life
relationships failed me
and I returned the favour
yet still I held onto the dream of
someday

 

It got to much
and I gave up on someday
That day I needed freedom
That day I needed joy
That day I needed to love myself
I started working on it
and making changes
because the future was too far away
and the dream’s were ashes
I had sunk too low
and lost my dream of someday

 

Now I know
that happiness is a choice
and freedom is perception
Joy comes from within
as does love
It took a lot of effort
yet the today I’ve made
beats every dream of someday

Focus on the Future

 

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”
― Dan Millman

 

I’ve given up second-guessing
and regret
they’ve always weighed me down.
I can’t change the past
now would I.
I’ll let it slide
into its own detritus
providing mulch for future growth.
Instead focusing on the now and
setting my intent on what’s to come.
With clarity I’ll move forward
and my steps will be sure.
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – November 3 2012

“Anyone whose goal is ‘something higher’ must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”
― Milan Kundera

 

To me this  speaks of facing our shadows, the parts of ourselves that we needed when we needed them and still can feel like comfortable old friends even as we’re sure we’re past them. Those parts can easily be the spiritual onlookers watching us rise saying “Jump Jump, come back to us. You know us and we can play the games we played at an earlier time. The vertigo can hit like a wave of nostalgia towards the who we were  even as we realize we can not be that again. Well actually we can, we can play those mental photographs and fix the lessons feeling compassion for who we were and acknowledging it as part of ourselves. The past is ever contained within our beings. The Fool always has his bag with him. But then the time comes to face our future as well. That dynamic between who we were and who we will become is magical indeed and is happening NOW at every instance of our being.
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – May 25 2012

“Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so.”
― Noam Chomsky

 

Making a better future, at least doing what we can to ensure it means that we have to surrender our powerlessness. It is so easy to say that we are at the mercy of the NWO, the powers that be, our pasts, our current economic status etc yet most of us ( I try to never say all because therein lies as big a trap as saying none) have the ability, have we but to claim it to not only make our futures better but to do things or say things that will help others to do the same.

Quote of the Day – January 9 2012

“Look back over the past, with its changing empires that rose and fell, and you can foresee the future, too.”
–Marcus Aurelius

 

When doing readings for people (usually but not always with tarot cards), I find that patterns stick out. People tend to repeat the same cycles not only in one area of their lives but across the board. Relationships with others tend to reflect one’s relationship with their environment and with their job etc. If this would be true for individuals would it be that far a stretch of the imagination to suppose it to be true for civilizations and possibly even for the human race as a whole. I believe our universe to be a holographic one. Namaste, G

Reverie by G A Rosenberg

Stained Glass by G A Rosenberg

Quote of the Day – January 3 2012

“To live for some future goal is shallow. It’s the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top.”

— Robert M Pirsig

I wish to be enlightened. I wish to be rich. I wish to be loved. Then learn, then earn, then love. Enjoy the journey. The destination seems always out of reach. Perhaps any goal worth achieving resembles a mathematical limit in that sense, always approaching, never there. I like that. I want to enjoy each moment along the way. Life seems to happen in those moments. If we see, even our mistakes as milestones on the way there, then we honour them. I needed to screw up before I could achieve..In that case, was it a screw up or a way station? I guess no real tragedies exist then do they? Only pieces of our path. Namaste, G
