YOU, reading this right now, yes YOU,

Thank you. Thank you for being alive and thank you for reading this. Before I lose you for a sec, I’d like you to know how special you are—now wait! Bare with me a sec, did you know there is no one else alive exactly like you? Did you know that you offer something toContinue reading “YOU, reading this right now, yes YOU,”

When the journey calls, do you answer?

When I left home to start my adventure, I knew it was an action I had to take. Ever since, I’ve traveled down many roads. I’ve lived lifetimes within years and to this day, I start them over again. I may be embarking on a new journey and when I say this, a new dayContinue reading “When the journey calls, do you answer?”

It’s mid-day, and I’m sorry I didn’t write

Something within me knew if I were to write the words I did on Sunday night, I’d leave this page empty the following day. I tried not to listen but instead I write this to you now. Yesterday was hard but it could’ve been harder. In all my lessons learned from Zen masters, Sufis, bodhisattvas,Continue reading “It’s mid-day, and I’m sorry I didn’t write”

It isn’t Monday I let pass me,

but the right to stop when I could. Instead I overworked my eyes, making it hard to even write this post. As the leaves begin to fall through the summer heat, I realize no wonder things keep changing around me. I look at the lessons in my life and wonder if I give myself enoughContinue reading “It isn’t Monday I let pass me,”

As my life continues to amaze me,

I wonder what else it has in store. I think about when I first started this blog, and moved out here to the west coast; how different it was then. I think it was on Thursdays I’d post. And it was always some sort of update on my life; what I was eating, what I’veContinue reading “As my life continues to amaze me,”

Untitled

Recently I’ve been asking myself, what do I truly want in life? If you read my blog posts, you know I’m very much into the whole “enlightenment” thing sort of speak. I’ve mentioned my life goal and purpose, and how I intend to spend the rest of my years. But when other things get inContinue reading “Untitled”

As I lay and look at the time,

I almost watch another Monday pass me by. These days I’ve been thinking a lot about the person I’ve made myself to be and wish I never started in the first place. I think about the words and practices of my teachers and wonder if there were any way out. I look at the personContinue reading “As I lay and look at the time,”

Another day passes,

another Monday forgotten. As the days blend in with each other, I lay on the floor and watch them pass by like clouds in the sky. I think about things and wonder if I should be. I wonder what I should be doing, living my human experience or aiming for higher. Or both. I seeContinue reading “Another day passes,”

One week later,

And I still can’t find the words to say. I sit in my room and watch the light trickle in passed the silence and trees. I smell scents of old homes through the forest and suns rays while nothing— makes a sound. I’ve been moving this past week in order to enjoy these moments. NoiseContinue reading “One week later,”

It’s Monday…

And I think about the things I’ve been saying these past couple of weeks; Things are getting easier yet harder. I wonder if that’s still true. I think about my most recent choice in life, the one mentioned in last weeks post, and wonder how much easier/harder it’s made everything. I feel I’m at theContinue reading “It’s Monday…”
