Our Path

Our path is a lonely one,

And at times it is treacherous.

So much has been lost,

Ancient knowledge,

A Treacherous Path

Traditions of teaching.

Mentors, what are they?

We are the generation

That must mentor itself;

Starting from scratch,

Sniffing for clues,

As to the true nature

Of reality.

Because our forebears

Have have been overcome,

Or neglected their duties,

To pass on the wisdom

Of our people;

And those who came.

And so we sniff for clues,

Scratch at the dirt,

Peek inside.

Avoid the prying eyes

Of a consciousness that does not accept

The underlying truths,

The self-evident realities,

Hidden in every corner,

That we don’t believe in;

And don’t see.

So now we know

Why we must hold onto each other

With all our might.

We are all we have.

The chain will not be broken,

Because we will not let go.

It does not end;

And neither do we.

Linger

Cherished moments linger on

I look to faces soon to be gone,

My moment briefly came and passed,

Reality sets in so hard and fast,

I’ve lived with passion, a spark of flame,

Ignited by love and hope and pain,

It’s embers glow with dying light,

Thoughts linger still this starry night,

I could have been most anything,

The sky called my heart,

But not my brain,

It was short and sweet, and passed so quick,

My life will be no more than this,

I’ve fallen from my lofty perch,

The world came crashing home it hurt,

The life I knew is gone tomorrow,

I’ve never known a greater sorrow.

Note: I wrote this poem 17 years ago – perhaps others can relate and it will help them. I’ve come so far since then. We all will grow I think. Peace and love brothers and sisters!

Sometimes the Most Important Thing to Remember

Politics is the illusion.  Don’t get completely caught in the web.  It is a starting point that will lead you down many rabbit holes.  Use your best judgement.  Republican or DemocratMore perspectives lead towards the truth, but ultimately it is inside all of us.  Every hole is another reality tunnel.  Every filter in your brain will determine your reality tunnel.  Don’t let your right or left brain win.  You are one.  We are one.  Politics is the art of divide and conquer.  Never forget.  Always forgive, learn, and then teach.
