Journaling can only receive the full benefit of awareness if it is done with pen and paper.  Creating the words with our hand and handwriting allows our heart to freely express our individual thoughts and emotions more intimately. The word spirits are only manifest with the art of pen and paper, guided by the human hand while art is the ability to breath life into an inanimate object.

An Expanded Theory

Illustrated Poet Robert Montgomery wrote in lights “The people you love, become ghosts inside of you, and like this, you keep them alive.”  (robertmontgomery.org) I like this, and I do believe love has the strength to do keep alive the proponent that actually constitutes living; organic life in concert with spiritual life. To escape that featherless biped character so prevalent in politics. But I wonder if it is a worthy addendum to consider that the life of the spirit goes beyond the host of our descendants and that the mystery that makes ghost possible is an existence that transcends the physical existence.

Beware of the love of Christ.  Beware of that which brings joy then that which signals fear.  Because what brings joy is more real than the fears we experience.  Joy is everlasting and permeates time, fear is temporary and therefore we will be compelled with more will to protect joy then have a need to guard our fears.

What to do?

The choices, unclear,

The risk, uncertain.

Will it only become apparent

After time has been squandered,

with worries? When it is too late

To worry anymore? Or, maybe

publish thought so that worry

Makes no claim and exit the apparent,

To enter knowing.
