The Tropic of Oz

“Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man that he didn’t already have.” -Dewey BunnellPK-free-0-boy-1262989_1920

And it came to pass on this faithful day, that the wild man who created such havoc casting out demon shadows he saw in others are in reality his demons to do away with and the inquisitive boy yearning for knowledge at every waking moment, never getting enough, are one and the same for they are you and they are me, forced into enchantment and awareness, abiding in a lonely house off to the left-hand way of ‘being’ by the river of contemplation. And the boy dwelling
inside the wild man approaches the threshold after suffering death and inhalation of ego’s to discover compassion… the jeweled still point, lying at the heart of the soul. And it is there you will find me sitting on the porch in quiet mindful meditation.

So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing”.   -T.S.Eliot, East Coker,*The Four Quartets Continue reading Quote10- T.S.Eliot

With visible tracks I am walking.
In a sacred manner I walk.
