Deeper issues of a sudden moment seated deep within my soul…quiet… can you hear the stillness? Quiet… does it move within you?

Into the abyss of situations shedding light on concerns about life itself. There is emptiness, an unsettling knot that tells me there is much more to life than times movement of the hands on a clock. The things of what I was taught in college, I don’t believe in. But one must trust in themselves as forever passionate about our passions we are; of all there is and all there is not. We heed the call at different phases of time… lunar or earthly. At different tides… high or low. While waiting for the Rhapsody or waiting for the bus, just as ignorant as ever, much too foolish to realize that I am the composer of me and to begin the song I must move in time.

Life can seem as one situation after another, that comes and goes where one feels unfulfilled to the point of boredom and then depression.  Material things can control as some may feel relief in inanimate objects. From the Buddha, learn many things and the first lesson, “unto oneself, be a light.” Because of this, still a light is shining, that I witness in others, a look of serenity and tranquility. Something that glows from deep within; I know many discover a deeper sense of being beyond time while living in the mystery of time, in perpetuity, in lucidity.

    Beautifully said. I must remember this.

  2. Lucidity! The word kept coming back to me. Surely that means clarity.
    So, today I looked it up and it was first used in 1810 and means clearness.
    Meaning number two was used by Graham Greene as below:
    “2 : a presumed capacity to perceive the truth directly and instantaneously : clairvoyance
    when the spirit is drawn to lucidity by the immediacy of death —Graham Greene”

    So yes, may we walk in lucidity / clarity each day and deal with each challenge as it comes.
