The dust has settled…clarity returned.
Why stir it up?
Do You feel the need to ease your conscience?
When others have moved on,
and left the dust to settle.
Their attention up to date.
Let them rest now.
Rest, Here, Now…
What is it that we seek in life…..happiness? A sense of purpose…fulfilled? A feeling that we are doing what we are here for? Enlightenment or at least progress on that path?(if you believe in it). Perhaps a sense that your life has not been wasted? Or that you’ve done more good than harm? Unity with some divine essence that you might believe in?
Perhaps you’d like to write your own blog,whether public or private with your thoughts about what it is we seek. You could put a link to it below.
Or you could comment below and join in the journey by sharing your view?..
For me I think that all the above examples fit for what it is I seek.
Seeking the source from where these words come
Free will handed over and trust given that the source will flow
Holding still this turbid mind that it may clear and words seen and written
What gems from beyond the horizon today will bring?
On the surf of the tide that ebbs and flows
Catch the wave and feel moved to write down those marvels
And once again to stillness go to halt the interupted flow
Pausing in between the shallows of the seaborn driftwood
Lost again the tide has turned of the mis beguiling mind
I often wonder about my writing style compared to others. It seems that i often just write down what I think at that moment.
Is this style called stream of consciousness? If so it also links nicely in with the spirituality/philosophy that I study/try to live etc
So I decided to give it a fresh go, the above verses written(hopefully)in that manner trusting that the words that came, came from the source.
Please feel free to comment/discuss below

I could share my story, but my story is not true, just a story made up by me, the ego.
I’d tell you of all those moments that came to my mind while I was writing it, coloured by my character etched upon the mind over years of sleeping through time. I would tell you of my highs and lows filtered by memory and anxiety of losing my happiness due to reacting to my false perceptions of your false perceptions.
I could share my story here…
But it’s not true! Just a misty view.
The only one i’ve never seen, always felt
Never felt, always seen
Never heard, always tasted
Never tasted, always heard
Never smelt always loved
Never loved, always smelt
Always loved,smelt,heard,tasted,felt and seen
Never loved,smelt,heard,tasted,felt or seen
Or somewhere inbetween.
As I awaken, at the beginningof the day
It seems to me that life is strange in a most peculiar way.
It all joins up together, situations to address,
Bends me to it’s will and then creates my life afresh.
As days unfold my life reveals the depths that lie within….
It’s like I’m made of paper, all folded up and thin.
I look outside and see the rain and contemplate the weather
And then I glance and notice that my skin is made of leather.
I’m in this bendy body that’s creased up by the sun
Unfolding through the seasons touch of nature being One
I’m an origami man from an origami womb.
When I die they’ll lay me flat in an origami tomb.
“I’m in amongst nature.
It’s the only thing that makes sense,
Any sense at all.”
As I look out of the window I see broken clouds. Are they like thoughts? With the clear sky the gaps between thoughts. Light pours through the gaps and causes the ground to light up brightly showing me the fine detail of what appears before me. Some days it’s overcast and I don’t seem to get a glimpse of the sun. Some times I get lost in the fog!
I’m a bit like a sun worshiper!
