~Something Said~

"In humility is the greatest freedom. As long as you have to defend the imaginary self that you think is important, you lose your piece of heart. As soon as you compare that shadow with the shadows of other people, you lose all joy, because you have begun to trade in unrealities and there is no joy in things that do not exist."

- Thomas Merton

If I had to wait another year

to know your love

I could wait a hundred more

to know it like no other.


If I had to wait another month

to feel your body

I could wait a thousand more

to memorize every touch.


If I had to wait another day

to hold your hand

I could wait a million more

to hold so tight as to never let go.


If I had to wait another second

to live my life without you

I could not endure a single more

of my heartbeats,



out of synch with yours.



Living Like Anything Is Possible

Pushing the boundaries of what you believe to be true and possible allow for more possibilities and a wider range of events/persons/things to enter into your life. Did you know that what you believe to be true is a choice? It is a choice made from facts, experiences and things that you have witnessed. But it is also made up of ideas you were told and taken on as true. Your belief system is created from your ideas of what you wish to be or hope to be. They are intangibles that you cannot prove but believe in otherwise. Perhaps because of the fear of being humiliated, you may not freely admit to others every item in your belief system. Or simply because you could not prove them, but know intuitively they are true. But make no mistake, what you believe in is a choice, created from provable and non-provable elements. The interesting idea about belief is that you choose how much to believe in and how far to take it. You define the boundaries of what is true for you. If you believe that you could intend a cup of coffee to be brought to you some time today, but not a twenty-dollar bill, then that is a definition of the boundaries of your reality. It is a your choice.

As long as I can remember, I have always believed that anything and everything is possible. Even when all surrounding evidence was pointing to the contrary, I still held on to my idea of living in a world of infinite possibilities. To that point, if everything you believed in required no faith, it would hardly be considered a belief at all but a fact. The common phrase, “ I will believe it when I see it” creates a reality of finite options. I prefer the phrase, “ I will see it when I believe it” because this creates a world of infinite possibilities. It is limited only by what we can dream for ourselves. Buddha taught us that the material world is one of illusion and our role is to be in the world but not of the world. Believing that anything is possible, even when current circumstances challenge that belief ultimately declare that you are choosing to see past the illusion. Limitations and scarcities of any kind are nothing but constructs of the mind (which lives in illusion of time and space) and are created from a limited perception. A way to challenge that perception is to change your perspective from the Imagined Truth of the mind, to the Apparent Truth of judgment free data (what actually is) to the Actual Truth: God is always giving. There is more than enough for everyone. We are all connected. By Divine design, everything is possible because for the Universe, nothing is impossible. The soul yearns to create and experience more than what your mind can imagine for yourself. Connect with your interior world. Reflect deeply on your true nature and let the contextual field of infinite possibilities be the back drop of your life.
