Come to your senses
Break down the fences
Guarding your heart
Your mind is alert
But your soul is still asleep
Wandering with the sheep
Stand above it all
You are not crazy for hearing a different call
The shepherds voice
Is not your only choice
Anywhere you wish to go
Be quiet, patient, and know
the lines carved into my palms imitate the lines of the water
seen within the reflection of the sunlight
connected to a source
i don’t know where this image is being projected from
all i know is the gratitude that fills my heart because i get to witness this movie with my eyes
and feel the pressure being carried down through the sky
to cool the earth and keep me alive
i can not feel bad for desiring to be alone.
just me and my mind.
i can not continue to resist the obligation i feel to immerse myself in the external world.
the force i put on myself to be amongst others and to be normal
wears me down,
so that the pull inside of me that begs for me to nurture the self
gets tired and i let go of who i am all together.
i lose my hold on myself,
and become small in the large chaos of the material world.
i can no longer bare to hurt myself like this,
so i will immerse myself in both worlds.
when there is agitation in either,
i will sit at the seat of my soul,
and know all that is outside of me is within me.
i can chose who i am in the present,
and nothing can ever change that,
because all there ever really is is change.
coins clinking in a cup
a sound that fills no one up
not even with a beggar’s luck
the urge to give
if only they were open to receive it
then my love could return them to a place the blind can see
any kindness could
not just me
i do not see those around me hungry for the truth
their stomachs are empty
but i know their hearts are not
they do not feel their hunger
but there will come a day
where they will feel the pain all at once
hear it from one loud roar
recognize it from one occurrence
seeing an event unfold
their lives unfold
and they will beg to be fed
and trust me
they will not starve
their hunger will be satiated
filled with truth
and emptied of reliance
until the ego’s demise
the curious child inside will go hungry
and not ask
because they do not know what it is to be fed
just some food for thought – g.c.
the barometer dropped
a true storm was coming
rebellion struck as passion began to ignite in every earthly soul
the air clear of agents not attuned to our biology
lungs filled purely on the prana that was meant to be there
no manipulation in the sky
just conscious creatures in the night
in balance with the cosmic sky
leaving behind lies
that once trailed them and forced them in a direction where there was nothing but chemically created illusion to meet the eye
i am the Atlantic,
i run deep,
life can survive in the darkest parts of me,
i run in different directions,
but my waves follow the moon,
i run into other oceans,
that i can never stray from,
i love everything from myself to infinity
i believe in oceans and worlds beyond me,
with the moon as a guide and the stars as companions
believing is just as easy as knowing,
and i know that i am a soul as deep and as beautiful as the ocean
seemingly endless self – g.c.
i hear my heart beat behind the whimsical whispers the wind carries across the earth..
“you are safe”
all the world is my home.
i’ll accept this with grace.
love is an endless melody. hear it in silence. – g.c.
