Your Favorite Post!

I want to see your favorite post on your own blog! I have been super swamped for several months and haven’t had the chance to be as active as I usually am. It has been a bit frustrating for me! I know some people are equally busy and only are able to make it by my blog after I have made a comment on their posts. However, several of you have been very active liking and commenting on my posts when I have not been able to return the favor. I am grateful.

So, if you would be so kind to share a link in the comments of one of your favorite posts that you have posted in the past few months, I would enjoy reading it. It can be a story, poem, or just random post. But, I want to go read it and check it out.

A Fancy Picture Taker Please

As many of you know, I took a trek up to Alaska during the summer and am currently living up here with my family. My spouse has taken on the hobby of photography, but is in need of a fancy shmancy camera. Our current cameras doesn’t have the professional whatnot to capture the Aurora Borealis (our current photos don’t do it any justice), the wildlife, and other features of the great landscape. Anyways, she has opened up a GoFundMe to raise the funds to make her dream come true. Afterwhich, we can start sharing the photos with those of you that are not up this way.

Thanks for donating if you are able! Have a great Sunday.

We Are Being

I have been in this place before!

Charmed by these tapered senses,

My soul stuck behind human flesh.

And what is that I hear…nay, feel?

Ah, yes,

The hostile ticking of death’s clock.

 

These people are familiar to me!

A brother, and friend, and stranger,

Each wandering with weary eyes.

Why can we not see…nay, wake up?

O’ alas,

We are ensnared in endless calamity.

 

Or are we?

 

Feasibly, there is no living and dying!

Nor good and evil; god and man,

Nor him and her; enemy and friend.

What is this thought…nay, truth?

I say,

We are one and the same; we are Being!

==============================================================

[I find that it is important to expand upon the philosophy that inspires this writing. This is simply a thought worth speculating.

We, as human beings, are the result of a fragmented consciousness of a single being, which some folks may refer to as God. There are many different elements of ourselves that can be perceived as a good or bad, masculine or feminine, or any other polar opposite we have defined in our society. We have long been in the process of piecing ourselves back together so that we can finally reach a state of enlightenment and progress beyond the material world – the finite. As commonalities further dissipate in the world, our soul splinters again and again. In addition, the entire world that we experience is created by us unanimously. Our motivations, perceptions, desires, etc. perpetuate the reality of our world. We create new gods, new concepts, new obstacles that further chips at our soul. If we could learn to embrace one another, understanding kindness and love, we could advance beyond this existence. See, you are me, and I am you, and we have been through this many times before! We must learn to push aside our perceived truths, individual beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and accept all aspects of our true Self as being truth in itself. Only then can the Being be awakened!]

Reincarnation

The timeless chamber is forbidden

The secrets of life written upon its walls

It tells the tale of love, and light, and harmony.

Have each of us been individually destined?

Or is it for unanimity the song calls?

Recycled until we find the road of eternity.
