Gate Gate Paragate (Beyond)

 

“Your head’s like mine, like all our heads; big enough to contain every god and devil there ever was. Big enough to hold the weight of oceans and the turning stars. Whole universes fit in there! But what do we choose to keep in this miraculous cabinet? Little broken things, sad trinkets that we play with over and over. The world turns our key and we play the same little tune again and again and we think that tune’s all we are.”
― Grant Morrison

 

Beyond Key and Lock
Beyond Thing and Thing
Beyond Rocks and Hard Places
Beyond our narrow narrow spaces
Beyond Party or Creed
Beyond our Little Needs
Beyond wants and desire
Past where we aspire
Beyond what we conceive
Beyond what we believe
Beyond Cosmos and world
We exist in endless possibility
We can decide and recreate ourselves daily
Blessings, G

Spoken Reality, Broken Potentials

 

“What you see depends entirely upon the words you have to describe what you see. Nothing exists unless we say it.”
— Grant Morrison

 

Pure form, formless
silence the point within
emptiness
existence has not yet been spoken
yet something moves
consciousness ripples in the void
awaiting to be born
Nothing exists
so anything is possible
Every time something is spoken
potential is lost
countless possibilities
blown out of the water.
In each word we choose a reality
consigning countless others
to the abyss.
but don’t let that stop you.
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

Beyond Time — A Rambling

 

“You should know now that nothing begins
Nor does it end.
Things are ever-present.”
-Grant Morrison

 

To see beyond the imposition of time is to see things complete as multi faceted gems that contain one’s entirety within them. Everything that we see as having happened or happening or will happen is there in one eternal moment in its perfection. There is nothing or no one that has ever existed for us that is not there for it is all part of that completeness and thus they exist and we can exist with them.
Of course we feel the constraints of time. It is after all a great way of organizing and experiencing things. I doubt anyone of us could handle our existence here without it tho on cold winter nights when we grow nostalgic, it helps to know that beyond the veil of time-space limitations, any person, place or thing continues as do we all.
Blessings, G

Dreams of Co-Created Love

 

“Sometimes you wonder, in an interconnected universe, who’s dreaming who?”
― Grant Morrison

 

I dreamt you last night
a complement for my longing
someone enough like my differences
that we could speak for hours
and different enough from my likes
to keep the magick going.
You dreamt me
a shadow of your desire
reaching out into three D or more
a refuge for your heart
We awoke alone
the sheets thrown about
and the memory of sweet sour taste
in our mouth
waiting for the next time we dreamed together
yet who created who?
— G A Rosenberg

 

Blessings, G

Imagining Myself Anew – A Consciousness Stream

 

“The interior of our skulls contains a portal to infinity.”
― Grant Morrison

 

Opening up the mind and imagining different lives. Not so much as an escape to my own but as an addition. Who knows? In living another existence if only for the space of moments or hours, I may learn compassion. What is it like to be a single mother of three in a rough area of New York City? What challenges do I face? What is it like to be twenty-three years old and wondering and fearing what the future may be? What is the life of a housecat or a fly or a planet or a God? Can I truly picture myself inside the life of another? How real can I make it? I entertain myself by traveling from life to life and I wonder who may find themselves traveling in mine? What is the continuity of existence? Have I imagined myself to be another being or am I imagining myself to be me a good deal of the time and if so can I imagine better? How good can I make this life? In an internal universe where we could be anything why limit our dreaming or our becoming?
Blessings, G

Reach Deeper

 

“Your head’s like mine, like all our heads; big enough to contain every god and devil there ever was. Big enough to hold the weight of oceans and the turning stars. Whole universes fit in there! But what do we choose to keep in this miraculous cabinet? Little broken things, sad trinkets that we play with over and over. The world turns our key and we play the same little tune again and again and we think that tune’s all we are.”
― Grant Morrison

 

I want to reach deeper
into the hidden caverns of myth and story.
I want to use the buried imagery
to paint mind pictures
that will echo in your deepest memories.
Too long on automatic pilot
skimming the surface, facile myths
and children’s tales oft captured before
but the snake’s energy lies within me
wanting to spring up
but only if I meet it half way.
The currents may drag me under
but if my intent’s direction is set
I’ll find my way back to the surface
with treasure in my being
to share and set you off on your own voyage….

 

Blessings, G

When I was in my senior year of high school the first video games came out. I remember an early one in the student union at the University next door where my friends and I would hang out, eat snacks and study. This was a basketball game with an introductory loop like many of them had. It showed a basketball player shooting a basket at full-court, then the player would move to half-court and shoot at the basket again then to quarter-court and once again shoot. Then the sequence would begin again and run through until someone put a quarter into play.
I would watch this sequence over and over again and being of a somewhat unusual turn of mind I would try to imagine what existence was like for this tiny pixelated player. Was he bored with his endeavour? What was he thinking? On some level perhaps I could identify with him, playing out a life script that at times seemed to have as much meaning as full-court shoot, half-court shoot, quarter-court shoot and repeat. I resolved at that point that I would choose my script and change it as many times as I could. Even then I wished my life to be intentional, to have meaning.
I have learned in my life perhaps due to the lesson of that video-game basketball player to seek to recognize the patterns that I fall into and understand them and break them. Oh they still come up but one by one they are slowly evolving. As are we all
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – December 15 2012

“Everyone does magic all the time in different ways. “Life” plus “significance” = magic.”
― Grant Morrison

 

Empowerment. To invest with power? That seems silly. Aren’t we all pretty powerful? Sometimes we need to be reminded of it, tis all. Like the song says “Oz didn’t give nothing to the tin man, that he didn’t already have”. In the Hindu Ramayana the deity Hanuman has many abilities but he can only use them when others believe he can. Ultimately we all have amazing abilities and powers. Most of us tell ourselves we are powerless. We even come up with elaborate stories to explain why we are powerless and who it is to blame for our lack of power.
That isn’t to say that we’re not capable of doing pretty horrible things to each other. Unfortunately many of us know what its like to be scarred by another. Of course, many of us also know what its like to scar in return.
Empowering tho is different. Somewhere inside of us we realize what we’re capable of and it scares us witless. If we have these abilities, isn’t it our responsibility to use them to help each other? Responsibility can be a pretty frightening thing, can’t it. So we put our fingers in our ears and sing “la la la” very loudly whenever someone dare tells us what we are capable of.
What would it be like if we all took things in our hands, woke up from our complacency and started using our powers to help and heal each other? That would be pretty significant in itself, wouldn’t it?
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – January 7 2012

‎”“Sometimes you wonder, in an interconnected universe, who’s dreaming who?”
–Grant Morrison

Sometimes you know we dream each other. What we see of any other person can only be the tip of the iceberg, no matter how open or honest they may be. So we fill in the blanks, edit in traits that we find evidence of, and remove that which we find it too difficult to look at. Pretty soon, we may find a point where the dream of the other person becomes more “real” to us that we may be incredulous when they act as themselves. “You can’t do that. That is not how you are”
Namaste, G
