Upon A Closer Look

The Sutra’s of my heart are joined in the middle by a writhing dragon, too stubborn to let go, too toothy to gently nibble at the chain.


If the truth hurts then…

20160508_160642

Words can nourish the body, fortify emotion and free the soul if they are one with the truth and the central premise to truth is that which contributes to the sustainability of life.  

I know there are people who boast that “the truth hurts,” believing that the hurt is evidence of truth, but the hurt is only evidence of “A” truth.  The only reason “A” truth hurts is because a partial truth is used to contradict another partial truth.  Partial truths benefit one person who will aggressively sew doubt with the desire to obtain worship with intimidation and to enslave; and thus a hurt.  “The” Truth are words that nourishes the body, beautifies the mind, and sets the soul free and does this simultaneously with a will to benefit all, not just self. 

There is no coincidence that truth can be analogous with ‘the fruit of the vine’ because a good fruit provides nourishment to the body, its sweetness bring joy and with a little passion and heat can give us a glimpse of the spirit within that is free.  If a statement is known as true but hurts and brings resentment, then it is a partial truth.  But if a statement nourishes as it brings joy and helps us understand our spiritual life, simultaneously, then that is The Truth.

The Write Heart

Sometimes I feel as if, my computer keyboard is like a piano, tapping out characters that plays a song in harmony to my compositions.  And other times, it is as if holding a pen and writing with my hand, is like using an instrument which bring together my own personage to dwell within melodies as my hand dances.


Reflections on Valentines Day

20151017_081925~2 bnc hue

If I called every jewel I see a “diamond,” then I would diminish the unique circumstances that fashioned each stone with a providential specialness of its own. Diamonds are not necessarily more special than any other stone but in nature a diamond is stronger, has more clarity and is timeless when compared to sapphires, rubies and emeralds. All jewels are precious in their own way. But the way a diamond is special is, it is so strong it can break all other stones but itself. Also, it unifies all colors onto one luster that magically it can shine with a light of its own. And diamonds are an extremely rare find. In the search for a diamond we may collect a greater volume of sapphires, rubies and emeralds, before actually finding one diamond. Buried in the deepest and densest sections of the earth, the location of diamonds is purposely hidden so that in the journey a bond, as strong as a diamond itself, can be formed. This bond reveals that such a treasure, once it is found, will never be casually tossed away because the hardships involved in the journey emphatically proves that such a jewel is a sacred gift and therefore is unforgettable and unbreakable.
Love is when our hearts become like that diamond. Love is not a more special feeling then ‘liking’ someone with the bonds of friendship, affection or loyalty. But when love is experienced we know something that is stronger than emotion. It provides an uplifting clarity through a light that shine of its own and frees us from the hardships of our reality with a life affirming values which, therefore can never fade. All emotions should be considered precious in their own way but friendship, affection and loyalty will fade without love, which is an extremely rare find. In the search for love we will encounter friendships, affection and loyalty more frequently than we encounter one love. Buried in deepest and densest sections of the human heart, the recognition of love is so slim that once it is found it would never be thrown away because the hardships involved in possessing it emphatically proves that love is a sacred gift and therefore unforgettable and unbreakable.
So long as the word “love” is used to define every pleasurable emotion, friendship, affection and loyalty will be giving a lower opinion and the sacredness of love is diminished to something so commonplace it is disposable and we will continue to miss out on the fortifying strength, the mysterious clarity and magical timelessness of love.
