Learning, what and how

We learn all the time, that’s for sure. We don’t have to go to school to learn, but when we go to school we learn there too. What is it that we learn? That is the question, an important one, the only one that really matters. What do we learn? Once that question is discovered,…

Fallen into consciousness

Fallen into consciousness from where? And yet as I breathe I consider that I don’t know about the things containing chlorophyll All those vegetating vegetations do they know their own meaning? their own purpose? Do they know that it is their greenness kissed by the sunshine that nourishes the air that I breathe and solar…

Suffocation

Fear and anxiety Insecurity Distorted perception Suspicion, sarcasm a form of aggression Denial of all these the doors shut to healing only the perpetuity of all the feelings loneliness, shame, longing Love just a myth all those who appear to have it therefore just pretending which is a form of lying and herein lies the…

Slow down or race right along

Chasing is exhausting Yet we chase We are born into the race And so we learn to hurry up From early on Tired the norm Our state of being Hard to remember Anyway There is no time for that Remembering Life’s too short for that Who wants to live in the past Anyway Let alone…

Surrender

Learning to let go can take a lifetime, maybe more. Learning to flow with life and it’s rhythms can take a lifetime, maybe more. Learning to make magic out of what can so easily become mundane can take years. Life is difficult and marvellous, full of frustration and paradoxes. There are also moments of bliss…
