MIA for a moment or two...okay, quite a few. I'll try to make my visits much more frequent. Much luv! <3
Oh, but where have you been?
So many lifetimes passed
Seen and felt so much
Forgotten it all.
But in flashes
Flickers of memory,
Reacquainted, reunited
With everyone you once were.
Here and Now, There and Then
See you there, see you then...again and again.
There are moments
(For which I am grateful)
Moments where I do not wonder
Where I do not worry
Though achingly ephemeral
In those moments
I am at peace
The pain passes through
Like dark matter
And I barely feel a thing
In those moments
Doubt clouds disperse
And an ember of trust glows
In the ever developing
Is a stream of moments
In some of those moments
I am strong and wise
In some of those moments
I do not miss you so much
Only for a moment.
The dull ache is my momento.
Psyche pulled
By moon pale blue
So is said can move the dead
Voodoo performed by heavens true
Body burns
When moon bleeds red.
Good and Bad Gravity
Inspired by a recent celestial event.
Dressed in blue
She beckons
I cannot turn away
Dressed in red
She ravages
I cannot disobey
Dressed in white
She whispers
With my senses she does play
Dressed in black
She keeps me waiting
Staring at the sky for days.
You see, I've come to realize that I'm an immensely paradoxical individual. I've come to realize that much truth comes in the form of paradoxes. We exist in proverbial gray areas, where one statement or representation of reality can be just as valid as it's opposite. Of course, I can only speak for myself. One inherent example stands out in my consciousness. Personally, I don't devote much of myself at all to religious tenants, but for the sake of discussion, I refer to the "Holy Trinity". In other words, the idea that "God", is a single being that is also represented by three separate figures (The "Father", "Son", and "Holy Ghost"). Again, I'm not one for such a view, but it is the philosophy behind it that I relate to, as I have my own Trinity. The Mind, Body, and Spirit. That is where my faith lies. I believe in the paradox that they are separate entities as well as one essence. Each has their own properties, but must work together.

Without the Body, the mind and spirit have no medium with which to operate. Without the Mind, the spirit is unruly and the body is uncontrolled. Without the Spirit, the mind is grows dull and the body becomes unwilling. Forever connected, like three branches sharing the same trunk, the same roots. What one needs may not always be what another requires, and sometimes, we must nourish one over the others. But there must always be a balance, some sort of equilibrium. If one remains neglected, our balance shifts, and our focus falters, our will diminishes. Tend to them all separately and nurture their connection as one. That is us. We are all one big paradox, and seven billion small ones. Individually All. Indivisibly One.

........But hey, that's just one dude's opinion.
