i choose not

Rainbow Warrior

you may try to break me, the world may try to break me, I may try to break myself,
but what if there was nothing to break in the first place?
but only the illusion of being broken itself?

what if the illusion was so real that it robbed me of the chance of truly being happy in the moment?
in the depths of my being, a tiny voice warns of this falsehood,
yes I can only be broken, if I choose to be broken, but I choose not...

if I could lift the veils

Cosmic Consciousness

 if I could lift the veils and see why things happen as they do,
then maybe I would not fight it so much...
because I can't do that,
I have to trust that everything happens, 
happens for a reason,
whether I like it or not...
I have to trust that it is for my own benefit...
maybe beneath the veils, life is just an emergent wave,
temporal and is just another playground
for appreciating what we really are...

strength lies within...

Meditation at the Lake
Picture Meditation At Lake kindly provided by h.koppdelaney
in the absence of yourself,
in the absence of the world,
in the absence of time,
in the absence of thought,
one finds peace,
one finds strength,
like diving into a deep reservoir,
only the water does not drown you,
rather it nourishes you
leaving you stronger when you come out,
ready to take on whatever the world will throw at you,
with a smile, with humility, with joy,
for one knows that all is temporary,
all that is going to happen, has already happened
all that is required is an effort to do what is right, what is just, what is out of love
see the strength lies within,
but only regular deep dives are required to gain it
just keep steady in your faith, 
in your compassion, 
and in your discipline
