The Dreamer and The Dream

"There is a dreamer, and there is the dreamer of the dream. The dream is a short-- lived play of forms. It is the world-- relatively real but not absolutely real. Then there is the dreamer, the absolute reality in which the forms come and go. The dreamer is not the person. The person is part of the dream. The dreamer … Continue reading The Dreamer and The Dream

Free

Glittery pearls floating in the sea Manifested buoyancy  After having found we in 'me.' Accepting duality now set free. After epiphany of clear sight Wings spread to take flight Given grace instead of misusing might Oysters opened shimmering their light Some may slip and fall Vision blurred by an invisible wall Getting back up again, painless … Continue reading Free

First Date

A barrier of language broken by mutual affinity to discuss the mundane. Miraculous when oysters giggle. Iridescent sparkle felt and reflected. A stolen umbrella, and chariot ride benevolently bestowed. Escalating lessons in modality received. Self-conscious of linguistic struggle drowned by security from his comforting presence. Secure from their mother's tears as she fires bullets. A … Continue reading First Date

Ambiguity

The blind leading the blind. Regurgitation resuscitates a child's pleading wish. Belonging by inspiring smiles. Being without achieving. Continuing without reaping progress while learners enjoy their bliss. Sowing seeds for future futile endeavors. Or does the futility lie in the expectation? Accomplishment seduces failure. Success permeates, escorted by forgotten passion. Manifested in remembrance of fading … Continue reading Ambiguity

Who You Are

" 'But I don't know who I am. I don't know what it means to be myself.' If you can be absolutely comfortable with not knowing who you are,then what's left is who you are-- the being behind the human, the field of pure potentiality rather than something that is already defined." -Eckhart Tolle Image taken from: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/433893745335492023/

Phuket Part 2- Kata Beach Bum

Last week was my first week of school which was nice, but certainly hectic. I'm teaching 3rd through 6th grade, and will admit that some of my students are a handful, but most are lovely and truly brighten my day. Its always nice to walk into a sea of smiling faces and hear Helllloooo Teacherrrr … Continue reading Phuket Part 2- Kata Beach Bum

Prisoner

Cobwebs cover skeletons. Poisonous fumes inhaled sprinting  past previously etched walls. Blood remains on the catacombs from chipped fingernails. Desperate  to mark any, the infinite series of twisted  turns praying to escape the Maze. Devoured by rats as a means to survive. Fur and feces somehow seem more appealing than death. Praying out instead of accepting fate. Lost to never … Continue reading Prisoner

The Shroud

Treading nimble steps plank by plank Tip toeing to remain balanced  Hoping to rise rank by rank  Patience to harness talents  Into the shroud of uncertainty  Out goes the vision of expectation  Attaining long lost harmony Discarding self-inflicted abrasion   A plank breaks and the spirit hovers  Courageously striding above and beyond  While the seeped … Continue reading The Shroud

A Fleeting Dream

As always, some hauntingly beautiful music, this time orchestral, from my favorite video game of all time FFX. There is also a poem to go along with it from the perspective of Yuna. Really hope you like both 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhYQLgd1h8I Striding forward to the end of the world. The lost city of the dead. Your … Continue reading A Fleeting Dream
