Elemental Love

 

“I guess all that’s left is to love the fire.”
― Norman Mailer

 

To love the fire
the spark that ignites and consumes
that feeds and inspires
and burns and illuminates.
To love the water
the elixir that fills and encompasses
that soothes and relates
and drowns and nourishes
To love the air
the wind that divides and discerns
that connects and describes
and spreads and communicates
To love the earth
the mother that loves and contains
that holds and feeds
and sustains and cherishes .
The spark of Fire
The wave of water
the breeze of air
the touch of earth
may our spirits unite with them all

 

Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – July 3 2012

“I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.”
― Robert A. Heinlein

 

I love Robert Heinlein. In a way he along with a few other writers raised me to think for myself through a stormy adolescence. I learned it was ok to be myself no matter who i was and it was ok to love always. In his books, he also introduced me to both the idea of sentient computers and libertarian ideals, which I still lean towards many years later.

 

A few more Heinlein quotes just because :

 

““Always listen to experts. They’ll tell you what can’t be done, and why. Then do it.”

 

“Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, “This you may not read, this you must not know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.”

 

“Being right too soon is socially unacceptable.”

Quote of the Day – December 24 2011

“In your light I learn how to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.

You dance inside my chest,
where no one sees you,

but sometimes I do,
and that sight becomes this art

–Rumi

I love reading Rumi and quoting him. I find so much love, wisdom and understanding from him. In this case, I feel he doesn’t speak about an earthly love but love of Godhead (source, the universe, whichever brand name you wish to use) as reflected both without and within…Glimpses of our own spirit and connection with the all indeed makes for poetry and art 🙂

Last night was my 1000th posting on Waking Spirals. In the next week or so, i hope to do something special to commemorate it. For those who follow my art and these entries, a heartfelt thank you. Namaste and Many Blessings G

“O! for a muse of fire, that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention.”
–William Shakespeare

Patterns shifting
