Beginning or Just the Beginning...?!

I've never thought about a blog idea, until recently when I've experienced an "a-ha" moment. I finally did it, at  the last day of August 2010. I'm not sure what I will write here about, but I know that it will be my inspirations, random thoughts, and my day begins  and ends.

To Be Ourselves...

“Many of us think that we have to say, or feel, or be something other than what we are. We say things that we don’t mean, thinking that it is what others want to hear. We pretend to feel things that seem acceptable so that others will approve of us. In this way we hide our true selves, both from others and our own selves. We bury our light in the mire of pretense and ‘trying to’.” – Desert Alchemy

Sea and Stars

Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.
And everyone you love is made of stardust,
and I know sometimes you cannot even breathe deeply,
and The night sky is no home,
and You have cried yourself to sleep enough times
That you are down to your last two percent,
But nothing is infinite, not even loss.
You are made of the sea and the stars,
and one day you are going to find yourself again.

To Be or Not to Be?

A statement that postulates the idea of existence and non-existence in one breath. Within that seemingly profound notion, you will discover the intrinsic presence of balance. Yin and Yang, is yet another concept of existence that requires balance between opposing forces by the very nature of their being. The concept of non-existence could not be, without the concept of being.  Conversely, the concept of being could not be without the concept of non-existence.  To maintain both concepts requires balance, without balance only one concept could exist or not exist as the case may be.

Plainly stated, time is balance. Time is the concept that allows for our perceptions to cycle from being, to not being, from the past into the future. The present moment, which is all we truly ever experience is the fulcrum of balance within the concept of time. Without time, or the perception of time, we would not be able to hold onto the notion of opposites as with Yen and Yang, Good and Evil, Existence and Non-Existence.
Opposites, remaining separate and apart, yet inter-dependent within the concept of time.

Separation then, is the idea that things are apart from one another. In opposition, locked in this eternal struggle until balance is achieved through some unification of principles or ideals. Our very own self perpetuated perception of distance and time, where all things are in a cyclic evolutionary process of improvement with destiny at the helm.  Acceptance and tolerance the only tools available to prevent self-annihilation.

The Pendulum is a symbol of time, swinging left to right while consistently acknowledging the simultaneous existence of opposites. The pendulum can only be left or right at any given moment, except of course at that moment in time when it is dead center. Not left, not right, but in unified balance. Think of that moment when the pendulum is centered as the present moment in time when all things left and right exist simultaneously in the "NOW"....  The concept of "NOW" commands our focus to the center or fulcrum of our existence, the fulcrum in time between all things past and future.  It is where all creation resides in BALANCE.

The "NOW" is all that is, ever was.... or will ever be. 
It is NOW and only NOW that you can ever experience in time or eternity. 
I AM, NOW is truth in its simplest form. 
In the NOW there is only I AM, no room exists for I WAS or I WILL BE.

Time Stands Still before Eternity, just like the pendulum at that crucial moment of balance between the ticks of time and concepts of opposition, all things in creation co-exist in the NOW. The concepts of opposition become united and one at this point, all things exist without time and remain within the cooperative and eternal state of balance.

Like the words on this page, the entire script exists NOW, regardless of your perceived process of evolution and experience in time to read and understand them. It is NOW necessary to point out the balance between the existence of the words and their non-existence which is represented by the presence of the spaces or nothingness between them.  Thus allowing for your concepts of separation and time in reading them.
                                 "ALL IS NOW.....NOW IS ALL....THAT IS"
I am reminded of a dream that I had years ago of a friend who passed away. In the dream I was shown an egg and a set of scales. While holding both symbols before me he said this.  Balance, like the Egg, it is the symbol of life !!   It stands balanced between life and death, existence and non-existence. 

I woke up and glanced at the clock noting 5 a.m.   Later while at work someone came by and asked if I had heard the news about my friend. I replied, yes I had...he died early this morning at 5 a.m.  They then asked...How did you know because his wife just called only a few minutes ago?  In his memory and of the symbols he revealed I wrote the following regarding the cyclic balance of life.

Whisper of change on wings of wind...
 leaves of gold give way to them.
As each day folds into the night

Autumn evens out the light.
Symbol of life stands balanced within..
an equinox of Autumns call, to begin and end.
The gentle touch of Autumns spell..
then summer sleeps, through Winters Hell !! 1998/05/03

New Life

I imagine a New Life growing from the ground, basking in the warm Spring sun.

A fresh grown New Life would mean no more worrying - since we could just regrow and change whenever problems come up...

This New Life would mean no more stress - since we're always doing what we want, when we want, with the people we love...

This New Life would mean the best possible work / life balance at all times - since we design our lives exactly the way we want to...

… In fact, this New Life would mean a second chance at a life we love. As soon as we pluck it from the ground.
