   weeping...

releasing deep pain

I didn’t know remained

      within

probably brushing it aside

in prayer and meditation

   whenever it came up…

as if the release of psychic pain

   is not an ongoing job…

   and so…

I have given myself this entire week

   OFF…

Saturday to Saturday

vacation

retreat

seclusion

no business

   no telephone calls…

   just the

   river

   my

   tears…

and

this profound sense of

   mourning

for whom?

or what?

   can’t name it…

   only know that a part of me…

a

heavy load

I’ve carried deep within my heart

since the beginning of

   memory

   can now be released…

during this week of

vacation

retreat

   letting go...

this week of

   death…

and

    dying things

Another Of Life’s Bitter Pills I’m Being Forced To Swallow…

The only thing that Life is guaranteed to give us

Is what we need

Not necessarily what we want or believe will complete us

Or make us happy

But always…unfailingly

We are given what we need

   No matter how painful or devastating

   And that applies collectively as well as individually

Isn’t it past Time

People

   For us to open our eyes…look around

   And learn the lessons that Life is so dramatically trying to teach us

Poor

Clueless

   Humans?

One day up

Next day down

One day all darkness and shadows

Next day sunshine and clear blue skies of joy

Dark

Reflections of my inner state

It is so difficult

To see ourselves

Reflected in the

Flaws

Today’s Musings At My Window Altar: The Hero/Heroine’s Journey…

sunrise 1 23 2013 001

We are all on a Hero/Heroine‘s journey

that is the nature of life.

Each time you meet a major obstacle

or reach “rock bottom”

that is simply Life presenting you with a golden moment of choice.

Whatever you choose to do in that moment…

whatever direction you choose to take…

the direction taken…

the choice made…

will determine the direction of your life

for the next ten-year cycle.

So choose well.

Choose carefully.

Move with thoughtful deliberation.

No hasty, emotional reactions.

Remember…

there are always consequences…

whether they are “positive” or “negative”

depends

solely

upon

the

choices

you

make.

The Bliss of Simply Being…

the significance of being...

the bliss of simply being…

I am learning the significance of…

experiencing the bliss of

simply being

No more striving towards noble goals

nor serving the needs of friend…family…or nation…

No dreaming dreams of future greatness

nor building monuments as testaments to

personal glory and fame…

No, none of that…

All former goals and desires

have passed away…

All earthly preoccupations

now fade…

leaving me

lost

in

the

bliss

of

simply

 being
