Collective Dream

“If everyone fought for their own convictions there would be no war.”

― Leo Tolstoy

Desire

A young man asked Socrates the secret to success. Socrates told the young man to meet him near the river the next morning. They met. Socrates asked the young man to walk with him towards the river. When the water got up to their neck, Socrates took the young man by surprise and ducked him into the water. The boy struggled to get out but Socrates was strong and kept him there until the boy started turning blue. Socrates pulled his head out of the water and the first thing the young man did was to gasp and take a deep breath of air. Socrates asked, 'What did you want the most when you were there?" The boy replied, "Air." Socrates said, "That is the secret to success. When you want success as badly as you wanted the air, then you will get it." There is no other secret.

Moral of the Story:

A burning desire is the starting point of all accomplishment. Just like a small fire cannot give much heat, a weak desire cannot produce great results.

Seed

Fill me
with your tears
for without them
I'm empty.

Fill me
with your love
for without it
I don't exist.

Fill me
with your suffering
for without it
I stumble in darkness.

Fill me,
fill me to the top
with every possible experience
and when I spill over
allow the soil to feed off my feelings
so that one day
someone may reap a fruit
that to me
was forbidden.

verse of unity

God did not come
in tents
or watches
God is a watchful host.
we must enjoy our time here.


(upon suddenly waking up one morning, I grabbed my phone to write it before it faded, then I went back to sleep. it came as a strange flash)

Now you see it, now you don't

A poet is like a magician. And a magician never gives himself away.

rest in peace

"He repeated until his dying day that there was no one with more common sense, no stonecutter more obstinate, no manager more lucid or dangerous, that a poet."

"It’s enough for me to be sure that you and I exist at this moment."

"No matter what, nobody can take away the dances you’ve already had."

"It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams."

- Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Bliss

Each moment is a now and each experience is an I. If one would transcend time and space by fully living in the now and by fully fulfilling one's unique function in existence, one would live in complete harmony with the universe.

Fulfillment

The path to uniqueness and the path to unity are one and the same.

Les Etoiles

It was written in the stars,
By an architect from Mars
That our light will shine above
Blinding light, numinous dove.
