December 21st

by rmolauzon In reply to midsummer

<div align="justify">Despite everything that has happened this year, December 21 is still a very, very special day. We have been through two evictions and lock-outs, six lovers, <em>two abortions</em> (err?) and many career changes for this year alone. I am hoping for better days, nights were we can sleep in peace, where smiles don't need to be expensive and friends don't need to be closely guarded. We often ask ourselves how many more cities will we live in, how many more beds or the lack of it will we explore and behind each understanding gaze - we ask ourselves the basic question we often deny our hearts: how many more flesh/souls will we embrace, only to leave us behind.<br /><br /> </div><br /><br /> <div align="center"><a title="Email Beawr" href="mailto: mr.beawr@gmail.com"><img width="240" height="320" border="0" align="absmiddle" alt="Beawr Stare" title="Beawr Stare" src="http://static.flickr.com/36/74334720_c9f2953bd7.jpg" /></a><br /><br /> </div> <br /><p> </p><br /> <div align="justify"><strong><em>It's really not so great right now, eh?</em></strong> Nearly shirtless, definitely homeless and exceptionally dreamless for someone who used to inspire dreams.

Anyway

by rmolauzon In reply to midsummer

After the exhausting trip to Ilocos Norte to pick up pieces for a friend who was beaten up and then abducted (thanks for all those who helped by the way and hope we see the light soon in this situation), I am reminded of:<br /><blockquote>1. The version found written on the wall in Mother Teresa's home for children in Calcutta: <br /><blockquote>People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.<br /><i>Forgive them anyway.</i><br /><br />If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.<br /><i>Be kind anyway.</i><br /><br />If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.<br /><i>Succeed anyway.</i><br /><br />If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.<br /><i>Be honest and sincere anyway.</i><br /><br />What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.<br /><i>Create anyway.</i><br /><br />If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.<br /><i>Be happy anyway.</i><br /><br />The good you do today, will often be forgotten.<br /><i>Do good anyway.</i><br /><br />Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.<br /><i>Give your best anyway.</i><br /><br />In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.</blockquote><br />-this version is credited to Mother Teresa<br /><br /><center>____________________________</center><br /><br />2. The Original Version:<br /><br /><blockquote><b>The Paradoxical Commandments <br />by Dr. Kent M. Keith</b><br /><br />People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.<br />Love them anyway.<br /><br />If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.<br />Do good anyway.<br /><br />If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.<br />Succeed anyway.<br /><br />The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.<br />Do good anyway.<br /><br />Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.<br />Be honest and frank anyway.<br /><br />The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.<br />Think big anyway.<br /><br />People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.<br />Fight for a few underdogs anyway.<br /><br />What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.<br />Build anyway.<br /><br />People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.<br />Help people anyway.<br /><br />Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.<br />Give the world the best you have anyway. <br />? 1968, 2001 Kent M. Keith</blockquote><br /><br /><i>"The Paradoxical Commandments" were written by Kent M. Keith in 1968 as part of a booklet for student leaders.</i></blockquote><br /><br />To newleaf, may you find your way home, the light is always left open.<br />To bubbles, may our journey once again take us to places where we find peace and happiness in the simplicity of a child-like heart.<p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://fullview.livejournal.com/61401.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Sandbox Postcard

by rmolauzon In reply to midsummer

<b>Dearest Sandbox Kid,</b><br /><blockquote><br /><center><b>Madeline L'Engle (One King's Epiphany)</b><br /><br />I cannot go back to night. <br />O Truth, O small and unexpected thing, <br />You have taken so much from me. <br />How can I hear wisdom's pain? <br />But I have been shown; and I have seen <br />Yes, I shall miss the stars.</center><br /><br />Today, I woke up to an adventure or rather an adventure woke up inside of me. I often underestimate karma, or life?s motion. As a stranger I step into one adventure after another, disregarding parameters and breaking boundaries. To be normal is to be lost and sanity is akin to being ignorant. <br /><br />It is also true that in a sense, my greatest fault is losing myself in the realities, infinite and individual universes, that is created by my kriya shakti (creative visualizations, visions, dreams, thought forms). In this Yoga or union still exists but inadvertently a hastening of karma and life patterns take place. My fault lies in often going too fast, being too selfish, self-centered (after all, in playing with reality one feels like the sun, the center of our particular universe) in the way I deal with humanity. <br /><br />The funny thing is that at the speed of thought (kriya Yoga?) you caught me at a ?hello?. I paused, even hesitated when your light decided to flicker my way. There was no drastic pounce or over-eager anticipation but more of seeing a miracle unfolds. I often wonder how a 70 year old man or woman will feel when they come face to face with their baby pillow (or comfort blanket), all fresh and alive. The question then continues, changing factors and characters, a second chance to live, to love or coming face to face with your first unexpressed love ? then having the chance to feel wholly connected. This in a long paragraph is why I continually avoid two very spiritual and human (they are one anyhow) ?topics?.<br /><br /><b>Love</b> ? which contains destiny, dreams, dependency etc. but which goes beyond time, rational thought and understandable definitions. Hence we often throw our arms up, give?up and face normality or go nuts, insane and let it burn through the very fabric of our being.<br /><br /><b>Past Lives</b> ? a series of intangibles often fantasized but don?t you ever wonder about the realm of Dreams? How infinite and unimaginable is its source? How do dreams begin? It isn?t part of tangible reality but we have already dreamt it ? does it mean it doesn?t exist? I am reminded of D.H. Lawrence (his quotes especially from <i>Bodiless God</i&gt saying, ?Everything that has beauty has a body, and is a body; everything that has being has being in the flesh: and dreams are only drawn from the bodies that are.? <br /><br />I would easily put a third category, often a taboo, and hidden from prying eyes simply because it?s either overrated or misunderstood ? <b>sex</b>. Intimacy is a springboard of haunting. Lovers long for it, fantasize and even die for it. Like love it consumes you but at the same time liberates you. Just as similarly, lovers intuit definitions through silence, way-out fantasies, and role playing and descriptive words that have its own interpretation for each individual case. Once can estimate an excuse by saying, ?It could all be simple if we could love all!? True, but being human there will always be that perverse yet honest right-fit, alchemical change, certain position, combination etc. that intimates a response. For me that?s why Fairy Tales end with a happily-ever-after, because the moment was so intimate that it will always be remembered, if not haunt the characters forever. <br /><br />This all the way around seems to bring us back to the realm of Dreams. One character from Peter Straub?s novel <i><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0671685635/sr=8-1/qid=1141882594/ref=sr_1_1/002-2168246-0816801?%5Fencoding=UTF8">Ghost Stories</a></i>, Alma Mobley said, ?Could you defeat a cloud, a dream or a poem?? Well, I never saw it as a battle; in fact, I did mention that it is our nature to dream, to go on dreaming? <br /><br />Now about that pause, that ?hello? I mentioned, well that?s really related to two concepts (who in turn are also much related), the <b>Zahir</b> and <b>Soulmates</b>. <br /><br />First, <b>Soulmates</b>, sine this has been one of the most addicting and controversial concept ever brought forth. The romance was engendered in the desire to dream of a perfect match, your other half completing you. Maybe centuries ago they were more in touch and the population of souls still thin (Don?t get me wrong, technically I believe most souls already existed but not individualized ? a dense population but a small number) or something else altogether. Anyhow since we are all journeying back home, the concept takes a new dimension, a paradox of individual universality; of coming from one source ending-up in the same hole while infinitely divergent between the end and beginning. In saying that you and I are made of the same cosmic dust (Star Dust?), presupposes a certain sameness, if not oneness with the whole of creation. I do not want to limit the concept but am simply amazed with the diversity of distractions, combinations and alterations the universal viewpoint gives light. <br /><br />Now, on to the idea of the <b>Zahir</b> (Arabic means visble, present, incapable of going unnoticed), quoted and reanimated by Paulo Coelho from Faubourg Saint-Peres? <i>Encyclopedia of the Fantastic</i> (1953) as: ?someone or something which once we have come in contact with them or it, gradually occupies our every thought, until we can think of nothing else. This can be considered either a state of holiness or of madness.? <br /><br />To be honest although Coleho, is one of the top authors I often recommend, <i><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0060825219/sr=8-1/qid=1141882480/ref=pd_bbs_1/002-2168246-0816801?%5Fencoding=UTF8">The Zahir</a></i>, was particularly not as enjoyable or strong for a subject matter such as the Zahir. It is though, not wishing this letter to be a literary criticism, a very honest book, pivotal even ? maybe but a lot of questions arise in the way he has portrayed himself (Coelho) and his characters in the past. I would want to know, ?What of <a href="i>Brida</i></a>">http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/9875800201/sr=8-1/qid=1141883237/ref=sr_1_1/002-2168246-0816801?%5Fencoding=UTF8"><i>Brida</i></a> (another book by the same author)?? Maybe we should just wait for the next book (although one day I hope you?d get hold of <i><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0007116055/sr=8-1/qid=1141882105/ref=sr_1_1/002-2168246-0816801?%5Fencoding=UTF8">The Devil and Miss Prym</a></i&gt. <br /><br />Anyhow, having stated this, I got rid of the other reason I did not breeze through the book and giving way to the more personal reason: the book was shared to us exactly at the point we were unveiling ourselves (the true Zahir, our higher selves?). It is difficult to face another story when you have yours to contend with ? a state of holiness, madness, dreams. In this manner when I first encountered the concept of the Zahir, years back, I was infatuated into marrying it with the idea of a catalyst, <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teilhard_de_Chardin">Teilhard de Chardin?s Zero-Point Theory</a> and/or the Philosopher?s Stone. <br /><br /><br /><br /><center><b>?We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves.?</b><br />- Lynn Hall <br /><br /><b>?We turn not older with years, but newer every day.?</b><br />- Emily Dickinson</center><br /><br /> <br /></blockquote><br /><b>The STRANGER</b><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://fullview.livejournal.com/61772.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
