Onward To the Palace of Wisdom- Truth

B56661025BIt’s said that the angels on high are joyous whenever someone turns their back on the everyday mundane 9 to 5 life.  That‘s the journey, as Van Morrison sang, “From the dark end of the street to the bright side of the road”. The signs along this path are the inkling of a universe wanting to speak to us. Every turn is a lesson, the winking of an eye, which is contemplated only by those who stay young at heart.

We foolishly separate the temporal and spiritual mix of our lives. Live your truth, your mythology; no one will hear your song if you don’t play it out of fear. We wear the temporal side of life on our sleeve (work etc) like a badge of courage but hide our inner nature, our bliss within. Our truth needs to air out since it feeds all other aspects of who we are. Strive for this and the pair of opposites curiously begin to look alike.

  1. “We foolishly separate the temporal and spiritual mix of our lives”. You are right in the danger to play a 9-5, 8-6….role. In insecurity most will try at first. Yet, once we let them flow together both the temporally and spiritually will grow as we add to both.
    An aspect I found so true in my working life and in my spiritual live which was enriched by deeper understanding of the world.

    Thank you again Jeff for a wonderful post and song.

  2. Jeff, this is such an inspiring post as we seek to balance the temporal and spiritual elements in our lives and let the two blend into perfect harmony. May we all experience moments when ‘the pair of opposites curiously begin to look alike’.
