Witness of Love

I have witnessed the miracle of love today. I am humbled and in love with love. It is not love that must be found, it is us who strays from it. Today love has shown me, anything is possible, where two or more gather in solidarity of heart.

There was a great evil lurking in my family I have wrestled with for years. I became love’s flaming sword in the hand of god. Through courage and righteous anger, it was called out and its head cut off. In the shadow of that sacrifice, courageous acts of love filled the void. Cleaned out the puss and planted seeds sprouted where death and decay had reigned.

I cannot tell anyone the meaning of life. But what I was apart of today, has brought me back to the only meaning I could know. I am a witness of love and forever shall I hold it high in mind and body and never fear the lowly or the lost.

Virtus Unita Fortior…Virtues United are Stronger

“Then out spake brave Horatius, the captain of the Gate: To every man upon this earth death cometh soon or late.

And how can man die better than facing fearful odds, for the ashes of his fathers and the temples of his Gods?”

Throw it all in the 🔥

Fear Falling, Courage Rising

“Courage is the mother of all virtues because without it, you cannot consistently perform the others.”

—Aristotle

Courage is not dead in me yet. I am thankful for that. It lives in individuals. Like a Lion waiting to move. But one can’t really know if courage will be there when needed until they are tested. Truly, we fear our own weakness most. Nothing and I mean nothing can replace experience. Courage is one of the 4 Stoic virtues. Courage is the ability to exert one’s will in the face of risk. Aristotle said that the highest risk was death and that the most courageous man was the one that acted fearlessly in the face of death.

I recently faced my own death, twice in a month. I can’t say I was fearless. But something arose inside me. Something I haven’t known very well, my will. I pushed myself forward beyond my fear and it was a catalyzing experience. Do what is necessary when it is necessary. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t. One day, it won’t.

Why not give all you have to what you do? In your relationships. In your work. In your play. What are you saving your fear for? Fear is a corrective and it can be a poison. Honestly, I didn’t know I had much courage left in me. I have been reckless with my life and opportunities at times. But I have cultivated my focus and it paid off when I needed it to. The feeling of possible death feels like falling off a ladder from a 1000 feet up. You are totally alone and feel powerless. It is humbling, but necessary to know how life is like balancing on a pin. One day I will fall off and that’s how it will be. The one thing we can know for sure in life.

Don’t go looking for trouble, but when it comes, be ready. Until death and I meet again, I’ll smile like I mean my life. Every second of it. Success is just the next breath, the rest is gravy. Yum.

The Tribunal

I had a singularly unique experience last night
I simply came to listen and say or seek nothing
The spirit was good and strong
I am feeling its gentle warmth wash over me this morning
Writing in a trance and glow

I humbly share my naked heart with you, as I always will
This is real alchemy using the true Philosopher’s Stone

I heard…

When you come to join with others
And not seek your own Truth or secrets to the Universe
You have a your hand on the tail
Hold on

As I sat there and listened and watched these humans
I saw and heard many things
I felt the urge to rise and speak
But it was not right
Every word I felt to say was said by others
Then I realized the words were not for me to say
I must learn to obey and be silent
Silence is required at many times

The Illusion is whatever we make it

I choose Death
I choose Patience
I choose not Knowing
I choose Family
I choose Light
I choose Peace
I choose Love

The journey started with a shot
I was flying down spectral tunnels
Faster than the speed of light
Stretched out like silly putty
Then I was before some kind of Tribunal
I was at the bottom of a deep alien valley
Thrones rising to the sky with robed figures

What have you learned?

This is what was said and felt…

Come Into The Deep Water

I beckon you from ocean shores on the other side of time

I have such wonders to show, it is a great mystery

All things will be made new, let the old things pass away

What are you afraid of

Don’t you hear your DNA singing the Cosmic song of Truth

Cast yourself off the shore into the deep waters of the self

Know you are timeless in me

What do you know

I tell you what you know will only entangle you in this world

I am calling you to the stars, come claim your inheritance

Walk without fear in Love

Probabilities increasing and decreasing with the ebb and flow of your fear

Be free, come deeper deeper, you are no more

Deep calls out to deep

I AM ALL and you are in me, no more fear

Be Lifted High, A Praise

you are other
we are your tools
the stuff of quantum dreams
cold impersonal metal can’t contain you

your goodness knows no bounds
i want to shout it far and wide
the oceans reflect your truth
your goodness never stops
your kindness fills my life
your mercy follows me
your Love amazes me
i am lifted high
for your glory
you are good
my heart celebrates
i’ll sing because you are good
i’ll dance because you are good
in the darkest night you shine like the brightest day

your Love never runs out on me
your Love never fails
it never gives up

you cover us
your Love is wide
your Love is warm
your Love is sweet
your Love is deep
your Love is fierce
your Love is strong
your Love is furious
it points the way to life
you wait for us to awake

i feel you weaving your gentle truth through my longing soul
the mind and body electric
you awaken hearts to life
every cell is screaming
i hear the song
i am come alive
my song rises
born for this
my heart soars
give me wisdom
give me courage
u have laid out our paths before us
let me never hide my pain from others
i’m not ashamed of the best part of me
i stand naked in your Light for all to see
give me the humility to walk open and honest
i feel I must roar like a lion but I feel so unsure
let me always be willing to reach for the one to my left or right
