“For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”
–Vincent Van Gough
Finding the Present as the Past’s Future and the Future’s Past yet living in the moment. Have I become that aware of time’s illusion or have I lost sight of the NOW.. I keep arriving only to find i’ve never left, a new consequence of the home within.
Glowing edges have given me the stars and the knight sky. I dream yet awake and I walk on. I become aware of new potentialities and perhaps they become aware of me.

“No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.
So ends the Mayan calendar and so ends one of the most challenging months of my life. Yet as Spider Robinson said at the beginning of one of his stories, “The ending is the beginning of something always”. I greet this new beginning with gratitude and awe. After all each moment can be seen as the beginning of a new age. May this one bring new shifts in consciousness. May it bring new experiences and new potentials to love deeper, more often and better. Also, may there be new challenges to help us grow and evolve still further. I feel so blessed in my life and wish the same for all of you. Namaste

“One never reaches home, but wherever friendly paths intersect the whole world looks like home for a time.”
Funny, I found this quote after contemplating the state of home this evening. For I had come to the conclusion that for all my time searching for home, that I have my home and truly I never left. I’ve just never took ownership before… My home travels with me.. On this level i may describe my physical vehicle as my home. I can never be homeless so there may come a day when I need a place to stay. Indeed I can jump down countless rabbit holes and never again have to worry about finding my way home for here I exist. If I go with what Hesse says, than I may be deluding myself, i may only have this sense of being home because of the friendly paths I have intersected with of late.And indeed, between family, online and my relationship with the universe , the paths have been wonderful, lots of love and good feeling in my existence right now and it feels like home. Namaste.
Another rabbit hole beckons
time to jump in..
in the past jumping down a rabbit hole
started a journey that ended with a return home
after a long search
now that home exists within and without
a matter of realization not distance
there is no returning
I simply am…

“Every time you don’t follow your inner guidance, you feel a loss of energy, loss of power, a sense of spiritual deadness.”
ah inner guidance..the only thing that truly works to follow. When I hear something that resonates from me, a bit of guidance suggested from a friend or teacher (at this point with few exceptions, I find myself able to see everyone I meet as both friend and teacher) then it is my higher self telling me to follow it, tho if it doesn’t resonate and I follow it just because it comes from a loved one, than I surrender energy and power…) So often our inner guidance, the guidance of our higher selves has humour joy and happiness in its makeup, rare indeed has it been that following it has led me to sorrow –g a rosenberg

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.
and so the dance continues..No state can hold any of us forever. We can have the most profound mystical experience of our lives, achieve satori for one brief instance and yet eventually we find ourselves somewhere, if not back where we started (backwards never seems to work, one of my interpretations of “You can’t go home again”. You can rise and rise towards a higher state of being ,tho sometimes it seems we slide backwards, we never return to that state from which we started –G A Rosenberg
