Power is in tearing [the] human mind to pieces and putting [it] together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”
— George Orwell


Distortions in the field
Demons, Angels, gods and men
elemental beings streaming
in and out like breaths
choose an aspect for the moment
and move on
blood roses and wine
drink the dark communion
and the light
which is more filling
Equations in the offering
divide a sunset over
seven rainbows
and solve for starlight
Book pages and characters
their roles played out
on ever dissolving stages.
Movement in the corner of my eye
animals, gryphons, manticores
sad puppies fighting for the
bones of my remains
sexual ecstasy in every corner
bodies surrendering and taking
what pleasure they can
joyful universe at play
dark imaginings in sleep
and who can tell the difference?
— G A Rosenberg


Blessings, G

Mirrored Thoughts — Some Perspective Doggerel


“I saw all the mirrors on earth and none of them reflected me.”
— Jorge Luis Borges


I reflect on my reflection
and realize no connection
to that pasty pale complexion
that I see
I remember me as younger
and my body lean with hunger
yet the belly hanging under
won’t agree
Still the years have been much kinder
then I deserve, its a reminder
of the truth I’ve been a finder
and I seek
yet the body has a balance
mind and spirit more a challenge
that I chose, that was my talent
I won’t weep
I’ll put it all together
make my whole self much better
to this challenge that I’ll weather
I will leap
— G A Rosenberg


Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – November 17 2011

Two Timothy Leary quotes tonight:

The universe is an intelligence test”


You’re only as young as the last time you changed your mind”

      –Timothy Leary


Given the picture I made tonight, Timothy Leary seemed a natural choice for the quote (s) to accompany it. Blowing your mind. Thinking outside the box. Going down the rabbit hole. Leaving your comfort zone. All beginnings of a quest that leaves you transformed. Very few people transform their lives doing the same thing day after day (assuming that thing is not spiritual practices such as yoga and meditation and even then as soon as it becomes routine perhaps it should be changed.  I have found that only that which challenges my every day life, which makes it impossible to follow routine can show me something new about myself. Only the thought that makes me uneasy enables me to think in new ways. Usually that is only true if I start looking to understand why it makes me uneasy. What am I resisting? Why is it dangerous? Why is it uncomfortable? The most primitive parts of our brain always tries to connect those two things, Discomfort and Dangerous. I want thoughts that discomfort. I want to learn new things, definitely about myself and always about others, how we relate and how everything relates to everything else.

Namaste,  GAR

Mind Blown by G A Rosenberg


Quote of the Day – February 2 2011

“He who, having lost one ideal, refuses to give his heart and soul to another and nobler, is like a man who declines to build a house on rock because the wind and rain ruined his house on the sand.”
— Constance Naden
