The Path of Least Resistance...

Change is constant. Change is inevitable. Change is the one thing that never fails. Trying to hold something unchanged is the ultimate resistance. The path of least resistance is the hidden key to happiness. Relinquishing our unattainable need for control and allowing the current of change (life) to carry us is the only true way to get to our destination. Let go of the bank! Trust the flow! It only feels perilous because of our limited scope of awareness. If you resist the flow of life, it will batter you and leave you broken and bruised. If you allow it to carry you with grace and faith, you will wash up gently upon the shores of paradise.
We are all in a constant state of evolutionary change. Stagnation is detrimental to this process. Fear of the unknown keeps us from moving gracefully through the stages of our own enlightenment. Through faith in this process and relinquishment of the mistaken concept of setting one’s own course, we become master life captains by following the course that presents itself and navigating our vessel through unexpected waters with confidence and ease.
We are the purveyors of our own destinies; in so much as we are able to let the paths unfold around us… Then are we able to see the bigger picture, the greater realm of possibilities, not hindered by our own short sightedness. When we are in a state of compliance with what is, we are truly sailing upon the sea of existence rather than struggling to avoid being drowned by the all-powerful mysteries of the unknown.
Welcome change. Open your heart and your mind to the concept of allowance. Embrace change, and live fully. Let go of senseless fear.  ALLOW life to BE what it is. And in so doing, allow yourself to BE a part of it.

A Poem called Truth...

My mind has been a torrent lately of thoughts and meanderings that are too complex to relate just yet. I haven't the skill to translate these thoughts into comprehendible, considerable, readable text. However, I remembered a poem I had written about five and a half years ago, that I’d like to offer for your contemplation...

In truth there simply has to be
A way to cause the world to see
From here we can not get to there
This place can only serve despair
Choices made and sides begot
Fear be fed and hatred taught
A distance furthered in between
Illusion wrapped up in a dream
Self inflicted pain and rage
Caught up in this twisted cage
Where heaven’s light doth barely seep
Lost from love in places deep
Children who deserve a life
Suffer through unending strife
All because we cannot see
Our false individuality
How is one worth more or less?
Based on where they lay their heads?
Until each mother’s safe and fed
And every child’s life is led
Until all people hold it true
That you are me and I am you
This downward spiral’s sure to spread
Leading to foul’s own sick end
And those who sadly can’t believe
In peace, love, and prosperity
Will continue on this evil trend
From fathers on to grandchildren
Damning us eternally
To live in false reality
Separation feeds the beast
Until the masses pray for peace
Seeking mercy fair and sweet
Alas in truth we’ll be set free

Thanks for reading today!
