“Wisdom of the Ages”

This experience in a body that we call life is a precious opportunity and a sacred endeavor. What a blessing and what a remarkable occurrence for our souls to incarnate in a physical form time and time again. For just like the passing of the seasons, your soul infinitely spins on the cosmic wheel of oneness. Yet, this wonder of being in form can not be fully explored until we come to terms with the haunting specter of death. For as sure as the morning sunrise, we will all die and the time and manner will not be of our choosing. So, armed with this wisdom of the ages there is only one true and revered way to live: as if each day could be your last.

“Form Transcended”

The blunt blade of logic

Can not hide

The underlying reality

That lives in the space

Of each passing moment….

Nor can the alarming currents greed

Muddy the clear waters of meditation

True spirit cannot be extinguished

By those who remain steadfast

In their devotion…..

And true spirit cannot be corrupted

By the passing side show of separation

Great beings with love and compassion

Are here to guide us amidst the storm

Of Ego’s pride.

Out in the wilderness, simplicity and freedom reign supreme. Everything is just as it is.  Uncompromising in her beauty, fulfilled with seeking, the essence of truth reflected. Nothing in nature acts out of course…. for how could the most transcendent of God’s glorious expressions fall anything short of perfection? Want to know the true meaning of infinite wisdom and real diversity? Step into the wild and experience the wonder of being free!
