For Amadeus: I Wish I Could Write Something as Beautiful as This…

Two Souls by Eduardo Calz

For dear Amadeus.

You know who you are. And I wish I could write a poem that encapsulates everything so wonderful about you.

And I will – in time.

In the meantime, I shall need to borrow a sonnet from the wonderful Pablo Neruda. I hope you like it…

SONNET XVII

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love, a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way than this:

Where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

” Try not to resist the changes that come your way….
Instead Let life live through you….

And do not worry that your life is turning upside down….
How do you know that the side you are used to
is better than the one to come….”

– Rumi

It is so easy to love
why do we make it so hard?
Love is not about what
you can do for me.
Love seeks only to give.
If I love, I want to
set you free to be
all you are meant to be.

Love does not restrict
forbid, create fear
for love is pure
unselfish, a gift to
another with no
expectation.

Love just is.

Everyday Awakening… In This Very Moment…

Absolutely 🙂 Thank you to the amazing Ganesh for sharing Gail Brenner’s wise words. Thank you ❤

Known is a drop, Unknown is an Ocean

everday awakening...

While you’ve been busy with your attention captured by feelings and thinking of yourself as separate and limited, you’ve missed the absolute truth: you have always been all that you ever wanted.

The self-help industry is fundamentally flawed. It perpetuates the myth that we are limited, damaged, inadequate selves who need to be fixed. Sadly, it keeps millions of people just like you hoping for a better future when they will finally be happy and fulfilled.

But what if this inadequate self isn’t who you are? What if it’s possible, at any moment, to be happy and free?

Discovering this possibility is a journey that leads you to the amazing fact that all you seek has always been here. What you discover won’t be new or unfamiliar. You’ve always been who you really are despite your distractions.

You’ve already delighted in the burst of joy that comes out of nowhere…

Soul Gatherings

Messenger
by Mary Oliver

My work is loving the world.
Here the sunflowers,
there the hummingbird —
equal seekers of sweetness.
Here the quickening yeast;
there the blue plums.
Here the clam deep in the speckled sand.

Are my boots old?
Is my coat torn?
Am I no longer young,
and still not half-perfect?
Let me keep my mind on what matters,
which is my work,
which is mostly standing still
and learning to be astonished.

The phoebe, the delphinium.
The sheep in the pasture, and the pasture.
Which is mostly rejoicing,
since all ingredients are here,
which is gratitude,
to be given a mind and a heart
and these body-clothes,
a mouth with which to give shouts of joy
to the moth and the wren,
to the sleepy dug-up clam,
telling them all,
over and over,
how it is that we live forever.

you and me…

A valuable thought for today… thank you, dearest Ganesh, for sharing this with us 🙂

Known is a drop, Unknown is an Ocean

you n me

We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other’s opposite and complement.

~ Hermann Hesse
