Forever Journey

 

“Come from forever, and you will go everywhere.”
― Arthur Rimbaud

 

Forever I come from
yet have lost my way in the moment
Distracted by visions
of mortality
and drunk on the banality
of the scheduled existence.
With limitless potential
I reside in a universal corner
and wide-range travel
only in visions and dreams
tho those often hold more truth
than what I face daily.
Oh to brave potential
and entwine myself in chaotic wanderings
rather than embrace limits
Freedom is a step away
and a second’s eternal journey.

— G A Rosenberg

Opening to the Moment

 

“You haven’t yet opened your heart fully, to life, to each moment. The peaceful warrior’s way is not about invulnerability, but absolute vulnerability–to the world, to life, and to the Presence you felt. All along I’ve shown you by example that a warrior’s life is not about imagined perfection or victory; it is about love. Love is a warrior’s sword; wherever it cuts, it gives life, not death.”
― Dan Millman

 

When is the last time you stopped and let yourself be in the moment? Letting the sounds, scents and colours of wherever you are pass through you and around you, totally open to the present without concern of doing or what was to come but simply being in the moment. I find quotes like Millman’s above a good reminder to just stop open and let myself be vulnerable. I can do it but never often enough or long enough. All too soon thoughts of what I will be doing next intrude or what I did earlier, the present making way for other periods. What would it be like if for twice a day, I opened myself to now?
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – January 2, 2013

“A poet is a blind optimist.
The world is against him for
many reasons. But the
poet persists. He believes
that he is on the right track,
no matter what any of his
fellow men say. In his
eternal search for truth, the
poet is alone.
He tries to be timeless in a
society built on time.”
― Jack Kerouac

 

In the physical, can we truly move beyond time? We acknowledge the ever Now and the ever here yet scramble to locate ourselves, for each moment perceived also becomes unique. No one is the same age as me and no one has seen this road before. With empathy and compassion we can feel another’s road but to feel it is not to tread it but to understand it.
I enjoy this ever changing snowflake now for the paradox it is. Being in my head may be painful at times but would not trade it for the more i work the manual for mine, the more insight i have into others in the here now with me. We all journey together on the same journey yet our destinations have already been met. I love talking in paradoxes. Paradoxes may be the only language that exists to describe reality mechanics..
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 – October 12 2012

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Grateful for both the good and the bad times. Both have their lessons to teach. Every relationship we are in will have both kinds of lessons as a new chemical interpersonal  alchemy happens. Two or more egos and spirits combining , always some rough areas and that’s where we learn the most.
What is each moment but a new relationship.  I suppose that is as good a definition of the word mindful as that I’ve ever heard. One’s relationship with each instance, each ever present now, feeling gratitude for each lesson learned and each challenge met.
Blessings, G

What Else Is There to Teach Him? by G A Rosenberg

 

Aquamarine by G A Rosenberg

I Move Forward… by G A Rosenberg

I move forward one foot in front
acting from my source
one step at a time
i can speak my truth
and need not fear the reply
or be dismayed by it
Where i came from or where i’m going is not as important as where i am
This moment..this place…
contains all of creation..
everything else is shadows and smoke…

stress, release into joy release into peace
i can enjoy this ride
tho take no passengers
everyone has their own vehicle
tho pull up alongside
and we can share stories
before we continue our journey
