Fear And Love Quote

” There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. ”

-John Lennon

Stream Of Time

tree

A once steady tree unshakable in it’s stature

Clinging to the days of old and the essence it yearns to capture

 Leaning uprooted it once stood tall

Reaching to the sky above them all

Enduring the ferocity of a world that does not forgive

Oblivious to it’s prison that it always has lived

It watches itself crumble and break as it starts to decay

Powerless against this invisible force it’s confidence in disarray

Laying in wait in the hands of it’s own fate

 Wisdom takes over and calm is it’s state

It now knows nothing in this world lasts forever

No matter how smart it is or how clever

So all it does now is bask in the rays of the loving sunshine

Giving itself freely to the stream of time

Timeless

timeless

Being aware of the most subtle of breath I take

Euphoria rules my being that my heart will never forsake

Every gentle brush of wind to the sunlight that has kissed my skin

Feelings of gratitude warms my heart deep inside within

The sounds and smells stir nostalgia in this moment of bliss

I reminisce of the peace I felt when I finally saw through the hazy mist

Time does not belong in this moment for which it has no say

As the sun shines brighter within illuminating my soul in every which way

It’s moments like these I deem worthy as priceless

This is what it means to me to live in a moment of timeless

Greatest Happiness In Life Quote

” We need to move into a culture of peace. What I hope to promote is the idea that we all need each other and that the greatest happiness in life is not how much we have but how much we give. That’s a wealth that’s priceless. You can’t buy compassion. ”

– Herbie Hancock

Moments Of Clarity

sunny day

It’s that moment of time amidst the chaotic mind

Where awareness reveals itself from the state of being blind

An epiphany arrives to show it’s face of wisdom

Striking your thoughts with flawless precision

Some feel shame and the reminiscence of regret

Others see the designs of the next greatest invention as of yet

These moments show up quickly never making a sound

When you least expect it in your sleep or just sitting around

Whispering from your soul a message meant for you

As clear as a bright sunny day your answers lay anew

These moments of clarity never plot never scheme

They only show you whether you are doing the right thing

Nature Overcomes All

ancient ruins

 A once proud structure standing in endless vegitation

Now has become a relic in decaying stagnation

An inescapable fate of what was once risen

Now a captor of natures infinite timeless prison

The seasons will pass and people will move on

All that remains is the resonance of nature so powerful so strong

People will try to burn and destroy to keep her at bay

But after your time is up she will endure and stay

She is the keeper of secrets and to few she will confide

Only tales of legend give clues to what history she hides

She will always be here long after you and I have gone

Covering up the scars of when man did her harm

Civilizations will rise and they will fall

Nature is the only one that will overcome it all

Peace In The Heart Poem

Peace in the heart gives a state of mind

Of which nothing outside yourself you will ever find

Happiness in the totality of your being

Nothing more nothing less never wanting or needing

A vibrant essence that all can see

Compassion a side effect of the highest degree

A tranquil heart leads you to be inclined

To be a true beacon of light for all of mankind

In sickness or death this peace will never sway

It lives in your heart and that is where it will stay

Blooming Flower Poem

Incubating in the womb of the soil

Protected from harm so the seed not spoil

In the warmth of love where it resides

Life starts to reveal itself where it no longer hides

Breaking the surface to show it’s perfection

Always rooted to the soil as to not lose it’s connection

Reaching to the sky as in it’s nature to do

Braving the unpredictable elements that it’s grown accustomed to

Rising up higher until it reaches it’s peak

Remaining in the foundation when it was soft and weak

The crown opens to show it’s vulnerable splendor to all

A magnificent radiant beauty coming from a seed that started so small

Three Treasures Quote

” I have three treasures. Guard and keep them: The first is deep love, the second is frugality, And the third is not to dare to be ahead of the world. Because of deep love, one is courageous. Because of frugality, one is generous. Because of not daring to be ahead of the world, one becomes the leader of the world. ”

– Lao Tzu

Life

Life is everywhere whether you know it or not

In the soil and the sky even the canvas of your cot

No matter how big or small short or tall

It’s what surrounds us and encompasses us all

Connection to life is what we inherit

Not jewels or money or even a gold karat

We breathe the same air and grow under the same sun

And yet we destroy things with regard to none

This planet and everything on it is for all of us to share

It pains the heart to watch things die with no conscience or care

Life is for all to live and not of our choice

It’s time we start to love all things full of heart and rejoice

Hatred Quote

” Hatred is corrosive of a person’s wisdom and conscience; the mentality of enmity can poison a nation’s spirit, instigate brutal life and death struggles, destroy a society’s tolerance and humanity, and block a nation’s progress to freedom and democracy ”

– Liu Xiaobo

Truth And Love Quote

” I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word. ”

– Martin Luther King Jr.
