“Silence is an ocean. Speech is a river. When the ocean is searching for you,
don’t walk into the river. Listen to the ocean.” – Rumi
Be here with me now
Fall into the mystery
Feel the nature of existence
To sense time
Is to be distracted
Recognize where you are
The more you feel yourself
Blue fire consumes
Only when your words stop
Do you begin to glimpse yourself
See and know yourself in the mirror of life
Awake to the awareness of yourself
That which you see watching you
In the moment
Thought is driven by fear and desire
The flame burns blue in the moment
A cleansing fire
I took the photo for this poem today. It represents the evolution of myself and ourselves connected to all and the Verse, whatever it and we are. I spent the weekend exploring and experiencing my consciousness at the Science and Non-Duality 2015 conference in San Jose, CA with my love. If you have never attended one, I highly recommend it. It is not what you expect, I promise. It’s an experience with a little bit for anyone on any path. I don’t share that to elevate myself or reflect my great spiritual wisdom. I was gathered there through moving without knowing and I had some amazing interactions and realizations, confirmations and challenges, peace and tension.
I wanted to encourage you if you are reading these words to take chances and be willing to throw everything you know away in seeking the truth. Change your mental, spiritual and physical state…as often as possible. Be present and aware of yourself in the world and others and your connection to all. If you have been here reading my ramblings, know I share openly and freely with you my honest spontaneous thoughts, feelings and impressions about life. I hope you are creating magic in yours. Let’s keep the alchemy going. Be the change.

“Be the change.”
Best thing I’ve heard all day. You will encourage a “quote of the day” in my brain.
When you mentioned blue fire, my mind strayed to Bunsen burners. Is blue fire a symbolism for something? Or is it actually blue?

The Blue fire is as symbolic as the blue sky. It reminds me of my center and source. Often in my art and poems, there are themes of Blue and Red. I don’t exactly know why 😉 They are not colors of sadness, but of change. Thank you for reading the words and taking the time to respond.

The blue and red most have to do with purification and your Bunsen burner metaphor is a good one if you think about using it in spiritual Alchemy. You have to know and help yourself before you can really do anything else.
