You and I

Happy is the moment when we sit together,

With two forms, two faces, yet one soul,

You and I

The flowers will bloom forever,

The birds will sing their eternal song,

The moment we enter the garden,

You and I

The stars of heaven will come to watch us

And we will show them the light of the full moon

You and I

No more thoughts of “you” and “I “,

Just the bliss of union-

Joyous, alive, free of care,

You and I

All the bright-winged birds of heaven 

Will swoop down to drink our sweet water-

The tears of our laughter,

You and I

What a miracle of fate, us sitting here.

Even at the opposite ends of the earth

We would still be together,

You and I.

We have one form in this world,

Another in the next,

To us belongs an eternal heaven,

The endless delight of 

You and I

The Fools Prayer

  

Oh my God,

I’m a silly sod,

All full of cheer,

But drowned in fear,

Of those out there,

All properly square,

Who look at me,

And all they see,

A man of insanity,

That’s my humanity.

Oh help me please

And put me at ease,

To play my part,

While set apart,

To use my humour,

While sharing rumour,

Of things unheard….

Your holy word.



The Journey…What do we seek?

  

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.

The Source

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.
