Opportunities, possibilities and perspective.

When i say something is True, I’m saying it’s a valid possibility from my point of view.

The unfortunate word “Truth”, we’ve done you wrong for so long.

So i have all these possibilities about a situation making up my perspective, which oddly enough, seems to have come with a dash of compassion and understanding this past year; even though 2016 and early 2017 were the worst years yet, an unexpected by-product to say the least!

I did not set out to change anything external, but that sure has changed too. The noticeable change is with view, intention and resulting thoughts. To see situations and understand them from perspectives built on possibilities, you have an opportunity for detachment or “transcendence” from them all, they cancel each other out and gift clarity, an emotional balance in chaos. This is not to say that to “don’t care” or have “given up”, those concepts are immaterial. It’s much deeper, in that suffering does not give rise in the first place; the reason you would have suffered prior no longer exists.

Don’t sweat it though, when it’s time for suffering, we’ll suffer…

 

Grey

A past that’s dark
Tomorrow’s a fight
we’ve missed the mark
but what is right?

A corruption of thought
Refined to expect
Manifesting what’s taught
It’s what we project

What is the I
That afflicts us all
A damaging cry
The path to our fall

The search for grace
A continuous spin
Can’t find that place
It’s already within

Tied to the things
Words and thoughts
They all seem to sing
Listen to Watts

It’s game to play
And falls away you see
Immerse in grey
There is no key

This poem is spent
Do not get stuck
The words are cement
I bid you good luck
