DISCOVERY

 

As the cool waters of life wash over you the west winds from the baptismal fount cleanse your soul.

 

The journey you seek is one of simplicity that is constantly complicated by everyday occurrences.

 

You strive for oneness even when there is two for there is solace in the union.

 

You walk this earth to learn and teach. To live, love and die.

 

You exchange thoughts, desires, dreams and aspirations with yourself forever changing with each new turn.

 

What is truth becomes a lie. Beauty is renamed ugly. Joy becomes elation then is dashed as promises and dreams are broken.

 

You turn and run but are stopped by a wall. Changing direction the same obstacle repeats.

 

You are boxed in with nowhere to go. Confused you look up.

 

There is another way, another direction, another path.

 

With outstretched arms you climb the rungs of sunlight provided from above.

 

You struggle as the air thins. It is difficult to breath. Sweat pours down your face. Your body is drenched with the foul sewage of the past.

 

But you climb on.

 

Finally the last rung is reached. You take that step and reach the plateau.

 

You crawl away from the edge.

 

As you stand your gaze focuses on something in front of you.

 

The sweat dries. The eyesight focuses on that image.

 

You finally recognize the object in front. It is what you have been seeking lo these many years.

 

Calm and ease washes over you and you smile.

 

You have finally found yourself.

It's not that I get tired of all the political or religious or economic threads it's just I like to write a variety of different ways.

I get the same feeling on a beach. The open space. No borders nevertheless unreachable ends. All is a circle. Repetition. You can break out of that circle only to enter a new one.
 
Only two things can prevent that. Death or the awareness of those circles.

I for one do get tired of the politics from time to time. Glad to see something different (& good) here for a change. Thumbs-up from me Ric.
