Behind all seen things lies something vaster; everything is but a path, a portal or a window opening on something other than itself.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

When it happens… we are at that perfect pitch of Spirit….

When the deep knowing way and the deep wisdom way is connected…..we know we are walking through the portal of a mystery we have already created…to enter…

It happens as we come into the eventide of our past..of a life we now have seen so deeply…..it has disappeared off our pages of time….with its’ treasures …..all spent

The future we spoke into becoming…yesterday……in a blink of an eye…..transports into a change we have no definition of….

This is the threshold between another day…..and another world…

In that threshold..the world let go ….when we dared not to….

The future..is closer than the reflection reveals…

A portal is a transitionary device of sight or sound that functions as a sort of third gravitating body between the this and the that, pulling us toward itself, allowing us to bridge into the unknown from the known.

Roy H. Williams

The Art of the Pause

“In every sound, the hidden silence sleeps.”
― Dejan Stojanovic, The Creator

We awaken silently…heroically lost….and walk into that experience…. in a silent way…..

In this silence, one masters the art of the pause..

Hope has a sound……at the speed of Light…it whispers….you are Blessed……

“Such a deep silence surrounds me, that I think I hear moonbeams striking on the windows.”
― Lucian Blaga

Mastering Listening

Once it’s over, sit back and try to relax with your favorite spooky movie. We dare ya. | 10 Ways To Nail The Perfect Fall Weekend

“….This is what sages, leaders, scientists, thinkers, and the brave souls of the past have done. They shifted and molded consciousness, actively transforming societies. They followed the impulse. They listened to the request to dialogue with the future. They consciously or unconsciously accepted their roles as midwives for the new….”
― Shahar Rabi

Deepened quietude expands with this bridging we are traversing

It is here…. the awareness of this eternal Shifting of the Soul…catches our breath..and our senses…

For in this stillness… we are privileged to witness the grand illusion…. dissolving…..

“And the people stayed home.

And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still.

And listened more deeply.

Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.
And the people healed.

And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.”……

Kitty O’Meara …And The People Stayed Home

*This is her poem about growth in times of despair, and intense despair as something that forces us to realize and hopefully fix the more latent despairs inside us and create new worlds from it.*

Busy Being Born

“I am large..I contain multitudes”…Walt Whitman

There are many elevations one must traverse…..while being born…

Hold the Love, hold the Peace ….and the hope of both….

Seeing things..we don’t want to see….

Loneliness…..is wearing us out…

while the notes of our soul…fall slowly…

In the name of good intentions

Using disease to contain us…

Programming fear while promoting promises…..

Awakened to the light…. means we see clearly…in the dark…

“I found out something I never knew:

I found out that my world was not the real world.”

– Robert F. Kennedy, 1968

Where Life Once Fit

“It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime…”
― Khaled Hosseini, 
The Kite Runner

In the stillness…. one chooses silence wisely…and uses ones inner senses….to navigate thought and the speed of light…

Time runs into dimensions and the shift happens in multiple moments…..from the corner of one’s eye….

Revealing that which we are indeed “married to”…love, fear, compassion, breath…tears…transformation…dignity…integrity….sorrow…

All the empty places within ourselves..reveal where life used to fit…..

then

We took one step…into 1 day later

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.”
― Helen Keller, The Open Door

2020 Odyssey

The site that deprives you of productivity one minute at a time. Replacing productivity with entertainment since 2010.

“We shine like those fires and those stars; we sigh like those waves; we suffer like those great ships, which are worn out in ploughing the waves, in obeying the wind which urges them towards an end, as the breath of God blows us towards a port. Everything likes to live, Raoul; and everything is beautiful in living things.”
― Alexandre Dumas, The Man in the Iron Mask

Not all choices in the Light…are easy…..

Yet when one lets go of steering the energy, aka: anger, fear, expectation…

the weight of choice is lifted and guidance takes over, with less bruising involved

If life throws you a bad vibration..do not let that interrupt the song…

Do not let that define your story…

If life were easy..it wouldn’t be hard….

We are all on an odyssey through the extremes….

Went up on the mountain,

To see what I could see,

The whole world was fallin’,

Right down in front of me.” Allman Brothers..Dreams I’ll Never See

The Light Years

“I don’t know what happened. Disease? War? Social collapse? Or was it just us? The Dead replacing the Living? I guess it’s not so important. Once you’ve arrived at the end of the world, it hardly matters which route you took.”
― Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies

The artifacts that was one’s life…mere weeks ago… seem like scraps of an ancient civilization… one is completely removed from… now…

there is no memory of the minute before the Earth stood still…… the shock is too deep to be loud about it… it’s a numbing type of consciousness…….while grief is shared from 6 feet away now…

This virus will leave us entirely newborn people…..

We will all be different; none of us will ever be the same again.

We will have deeper roots, be made of denser soil, and our eyes will have seen things.

“Hope…which is whispered from Pandora’s box only after all the other plagues and sorrows had escaped, is the best and last of all things. Without it, there is only time. And time pushes at our backs like a centrifuge, forcing us outward and away, until it nudges us into oblivion.”
― Ian Caldwell, The Rule of Four

Keep the temperature between 65 and 67 degrees to tell your body it's time for bed.

“When those who lived through the epidemic tried to describe it, they talked about the sudden eerie quiet.”
