without time

...two thousand miles
away from you

leaves me spinning...
like my tires across dusty roads
floating in the limbo
between the love of the road
and the grief of what i leave behind

never enough time...
to stop
and just be
and to enjoy the place where i am
and to reflect
on the images in my rearview mirror
in my wake
melancholy for the beauty that i see
but can not seem to enjoy
while i race past it all
white knuckles
steering wheel
agenda overridden

and wanting to just stop,
and soak it up
like a deep breath
as the moon peeks through the clouds
in late summer

is it better to have seen it pass you by
or have never known it was there?

it seems sad that i sit here,
looking out the window
but don't have the time to absorb it
to enjoy it's peace
and hear the silence

like a loon calling in the dawn
drowning in the drone of the noise
motors running all night

when will i have time
to walk
to sit
to be free
to live
without time...

Ocean of Ecstacy

Ocean of Ecstacy

To see the coming dawn, one must learn to be free.
Transcending the bonds of old paradigms...

The awakening is raw, real and human.

To judge is to compare...
There is no comparison.
There is only one consciousness.

And to feel the unity of omnipresence, you must die to the past.
Once you stop projecting a false reality onto the cosmic canvas,
and the facade vanishes, you find the heart of God within you.

This is not another identity, this is your essence, the essence of the universe.

The awakening of one soul into the river of creation can change the course of humanity.
Not only do you overcome personal inprisonment, you liberate us all.

We evolve consciously into a new world.
We realize it is a choice we make.

We have finally grown up and now we can look down upon the landscape of our childish gluttony.

As we transcend time and place, the clouds dance across the Earth below as we fly around her,
we glide along the outer edge of the atmosphere,
chasing a whisper of morning song as the birds praise the coming of dawn in the spring mist.

Drama on personal levels has been the turbulence to create the waves upon which we surf
as a dolphin in the illuminated wave of love that overwhelms you and washes it all away.

Conflict of any kind crumbles into find sand that has made a beautiful beach glistening like a galaxy
as the evening light brings gifts of golden water caressing the edge of Earth.

You can only experience another dimension by entering into it.

You can only understand higher knowledge by ingesting it.

You can only see the path while you are on it.

Each step, received with love from the world, that you create by intention alone.

The fountain of youth in the garden of Eden is within you!
The world is alive with song...

Birds and all heavenly creatures shine in the lush jungle
await in eager anticipation,
as you get down on your knees and look into the calm water
and see the Creator looking back at you.

It is you.

All that you perceive is but a reflection, a projection.

And know that you are still, and you know that you are God,
the vastness of the universe is within your heart
and you become Pure Love
without identity,
without form...
within all things,
and beyond the concepts of good or bad,
or right and wrong.

Seeing the totality and necessity
of every soul

Absorbing the growth of each and every interaction
like a river
like the stars...

and expanding
beyond your wildest dreams

into the ocean
of ecstasy!

400 wall street pirates
have horded more wealth
than the entire population of America combined
is this the American dream?
economic oppression

when hospitals won't help you
when schools rob you
when there are children starving in the streets
people without homes
is this progress?
is this just?

and while our beds burn
and capitalists suck the life blood out of the 3rd world
young men and women
patrol the world
"defending" the empire from it's supposed "enemies"

the empire has no clothes
yet every channel on TV
shovels the same shit
in epic proportions

we all run on the hamster wheel
driven by fear
terrorized by the wolves at the door
without knowing that we are the wheels of the machine
and when we stop - it does too

slavery was never abolished, just modified into a "friendlier" classism
yet why should anyone have so much, when so many have none?

how could one person ever need a billion dollars?
why should the public assets
line the pockets of the ruling elite?

Viva la (R)evoltion!

culture shock

tropical sun
tight pants
dust, dirt, and diesel
loud music
everyone is dancing

yet there is no elitism
only pride
and culture
like i have never seen

there is an ambience in the air
a song
a triumph
we are free
we are a strong people
with our feet on the ground
committed to peace and equality
this is justice
this is socialism

minding our own business
not "fighting terrorism" over seas
not "cutting social services"
or repressing natural process
or neglecting the earth on which we depend

not perfect
but embracing change
embracing the struggle to reform
to rebuild our relationship with each other and the earth
dancing and feasting
celebrating life

walking the path of history
yet knowing we can make our own
the foundation is laid
yet we can choose the paint to color the canvas

to pick up where others have left
to continue the process of evolution
driving an old car
with a new motor
with new passengers

i am the driver
i am the wheel
and i am turning
sweating with excitement
with anticipation for the journey
which can not unfold
except to those
who choose to step into the fray
into the streets
with the wind in your hair

may you find the songs
ringing in your ears
and the smell of freedom
that sweet dream
that is real
only if you step out of your own prison
out of the barriers in your mind

echoing in the halls of ideology
is an old thought
that manifests in the soil
in the air that you breath
like a shower of rain after a long drought
may you taste the blessings
of the fruit
which you plant
in the reality
of a new paradigm
yet completely radical

beyond baby steps
you find this shift
in the fabric of consciousness
in the substance of freedom
the true liberation is now
is the moment
you decide when
and where

i choose now
and here

viva la (r)evoltion
