Completeness 2018-89

Sometimes I wonder what I am doing and if it is correct and worthwhile, and then I take time to think that, at that moment, I am complete in my thoughts and therefore am on the right track of life.

 

Completeness   2018-89

 

Completeness, emulating from within

Realized by and from the solitude of thought

A self-assurance of the whole

Mind and body melded into one lot.

 

Not vain, nor smug, but instead a feeling of reality

Knowing things are because— just because!

No self-doubt or second thoughts of surreally

Instead an euphoria of positive alpha waves

 

At last, peace within oneself, at last, at last,

The limits, capabilities, strengths and weaknesses

All known, acknowledged, confronted head on

Turmoil gone, nothing reigning except completeness

 

A dream, a wish, or an actual way of life

Everyday living a constant battle to conquer

The thought process known, or not comprehended

Time, the constant, will tell, will concur, will be!!!

The Cost of a Laugh and Smile 2018-67

                        The Cost of a Laugh and Smile   2018-67

Beware, be warned!  You could pay a price for that smile or moment of laughter you make!!!

For you to expose your inner most feeling of joy at something, to someone, you may make yourself vulnerable to many things you do not want or expect. No longer looked at as a person having no interest, no light side, and having a dull existence.

Instead, seen as a normal humanoid, with emotions, allowing a laugh to escape the confines of the brain, released by the gatekeeper mind, that controls what passes from the lips of the body.

Muscles of the face now contracted into a grimace of pleasure and not despair. The voice box making a sound, not of speech, but of an unnatural, for you, guttural noise.

I dare say, BUT, at what cost?

To be considered now, as one with joy, one with a light heart and not a heavy one? To be seen like a Shakespearian actor, stating “if you tickle me do I not laugh”, knowing also, that if they prick you, do you not bleed?

A different you now, that cannot be taken back, never to be seen as the old Self – Now the New!!

No longer reserved with introspective thoughts. Now exposed for those to see, the REAL you.

Pay the Price!  Do NOT be bashful, let it all hang out! Let those that look, actually see, really hear what and how you are now.

Don’t hide behind dignity, skirting reality!! Be your REAL Self –  enjoy and be thankful, —–for the cost of living – ACTUALLY living —–is a Life of Joy.

 

Peace,

Lost in Space 2018-17

When the mind is affected, and the thought processes are involved, we comprehend things in a different way than normal.  That is to be expected, but to experience it is somewhat of a different thing.  Actually, it is interesting to go through this, because, in some ways I was changed, I was different, and with this change I have a perspective in life that is, to me, unique and mine to own.

Lost in Space 2018-17

I look, but do not see

Try to listen, but do not hear

To speak, but cannot talk

 

I am alone with my senses

My mind overflowing

With random thoughts

 

The world spins so fast

Leaving me in a

Whirlwind of wonder

 

How does one follow

Is so common place.

We are, because we are……

Lost in Space 2016-40

I am how I am, and am who I am because I am. My mind is as it is, because it is. The realities of life are because they are and the senses of my being tell me just how things are in life; outstanding!!!!

Lost in Space 2016-40

I look, but do not see

Try to listen, but do not hear

To speak, but cannot talk

 

I am alone with my senses

My mind overflowing

With random thoughts

 

The world spins so fast

Leaving me in a

Whirlwind of wonder

 

How does one follow,

Is something to consider;

And so, so staggering.

Essence of Thought 2016-18

 

What are thoughts and how do we come up with the many that we do? I believe when I wrote this, I was thinking too much (and maybe still am).

Essence of Thought  2016-18 

Begone, begone ye cursed thoughts,

Take off and flee to a different day.

Let my mind be at rest for a fleeting moment,

To regroup for a haggard stay.

 

Interest wanes for continued love,

In dismay, my mind wanders still.

Perish the Devil for allowing this,

A wicked way of fortunate bliss.

 

A rusty pinnacle of frozen tableau,

Given in time for decrepit spray.

Alas, the heart beat continues still,

Allowing a millennium of joy, I pray.

 

Where is the harbinger of celestial upheaval,

To judge those left behind.

Thoughts remain to drip to oblivion,

Finally peace reigns in my time.

Awakening 2015-123

Occasionally I will, on purpose, post a blog that may not make sense to some, but will to others. I hate calling them a challenge, but in essence they are exactly that. There is no prize, no reward, or even recognition if you understand, like or comment on this post. If you do not, that is ok, just humor me and continue to go on with life in your own way; which is ok too……….What scares me ,somewhat, is –I DO understand this one.

Awakening 2015-123

Stirring

The ability; taught from

a mothers creativity;

Nourished by life’s experiences

thoughts molded, reshaped over

again; held in reserve

 

Till

 

An occurrence by accident

creating a blankness in the mind

Evolving to an innocence

compared like dawn’s arrival

Sprung forth to freedom,

to scream at the world

A sharing to all, plus

reserved to part of the inner self

 

Questions

 

At first, not understanding

but then comprehensible with time

the reflections of ones own

and others of their deeds

From passing hours, arrives

the refinements; a process

of nature and time

exacting knowledge and compassion

as a by product of the process itself.

 

Known

 

Created by mothers milk and

remembered by the struggles of

survival, reborn by fate;

the Awakening continues

for eternity.

Eye – Mind 2014-50

“Well, pretty hard to see what another person is thinking, but would it not be great if we could do as this poem suggests? The key to the writing of this poem is the fact that it is the SELF, that you can see into, if you look hard enough and are honest in what you describe seeing. I remember looking into a mirror one day, while shaving, and asked myself, just what I was capable of doing, business wise. It was a revelation that I admitted my faults of what I was NOT able to do and this, in turn, helped me to see my strengths.

There is a paragraph in a book entitled, “The Fires of Spring” by James Michener, that I keep on my computer stand. It describes the “journey that men (or women) make to find themselves.” The premise of the passage is basically that of dealing with life in a certain way and if done correctly, you will “find a mansion which yhou can inhabit with dignity, all the days of your life.” Interesting, but you have to ”look into the mirror and be  honest with yourself, first.”

Eye –  Mind        2014-50

Look into the eyes of man

and see the workings of the mind

Delve into the persons thoughts

and tap the rational of their thinking.

Experience the love, bravado, hate and fear,

and know of the emotions of  inner feeling.

Look into a mirror at self

and see the reality of same- of living.
