Painted faces…
March 23, 2008

In the mirror I look,

I see. 

The mask so perfect

It’s only me.

On the street

into the day 

painted faces

make their way.

Each their own 

a smile,

the lack. 

Mask of burden 

don’t break their back.

Young one’s learn,  

each day they play. 

To mask their lives,  

to form,

to pay. 

  A dance in the night,  

a new mask tonight. 

How unique,  

how proud,  

the gift of the shroud.

Transition I see 

the mask a new

taken and molded,  

by one,

by few.

   Mask of falsehood,  

mask of disdain 

lost it’s purity,  

playing the game. 

  A task of challenge,  

the joy of life, 

choosing the face,  

to mask the strife.

   A collection so versatile, 

so large and complete. 

For one so young,

to love, 

to hate,  

to conquer,  

to cheat. 

  In the mirror,

I look,

I see. 

The mask,  

a jail; 

I have to be free!

Meaningful Coincidence and Synchronicity…
March 13, 2008

… The experience and expression of synchronicity or meaningful coincidence in our life is an important affirmation or milestone in the direction our life is heading.  A few of us have decided to pursue directions and paths in life that fall outside of the “normal” conventional way of living, thinking, being and doing.  We have many labels, philosophies or teachings that contribute to this inner transformation that vary, but synchronicity is a common thread that appears in the canvas of our experience and the journey of restoring the memory of wholeness and inner perfection.   

Many of us have made choices to significantly and sometimes painfully change the way we do life.  Controversial decisions are made with regard to career, relationships and family that often rock the boat of our sanity in what we call a normal sane world.  Synchronicity and the enhanced experience and expression of this phenomena in our life, is a confirmation that the courageous choices, changes, decisions and commitments we have made; our attentiveness to following our inner voice, guidance or intuitions has opened a doorway to the magic and mystery of the art Being.   

Where the “I” only sees distinction, separation and the perceived laws of cause effect in life, synchronicity is an affirmation of the unspoken, interdependence of all things.  It is the realization that for any event, circumstance or situation to occur in life requires the cooperation of the entire Universe to happen.  It is the recognition and realization that all circumstance however meaningful or insignificant to the mind are ultimately orchestrated at a level and scope that is beyond the comprehension and reach of the “I” and mind. 

The personal has always wanted to become intimate with the impersonal.  Human beings have many attachments, expectations, rules and regulations around how this process will unfold or be experienced. Synchronicity is the whisper of a Universe that wants to attract our attention, to reveal what is already present within the scope of our attention and awareness.  When we choose to become more alert to the experience of meaningful coincidence or synchronicity in our lives, we do not need to be dependent on the prophets, priests, or teachings of others to embrace the intimacy we have hungered for. 

When we pay attention, notice, or investigate the occurrence of synchronicity in our life we have the ability to accelerate the restoration of Who We Are, while also engaging the flow of effortlessness ease to be experienced and expressed within our life.   

Recognition of the occurrence of synchronicity is a universal invitation for us to:  

Realize there is no separation, there is no distinction. 

Life is ultimately an opportunity to nurture the value of relationship that already exists, the interdependence and inter connectedness of all things. 

The importance and need of becoming more clear, aware and detached around the most important and meaningful intentions we have for our life. 

An invitation to practice or abandon the need for another’s approval or disapproval in order for us to be happy. 

The opportunity to experience inspiration and fulfillment, completion or closure to a circumstances, situations, experiences or events in our life. 

A new open doorway to possibilities of greater levels of the subjective experience of freedom; our “next step” in life. 

Greater clarity and conviction to the ever changing, ever evolving meaning and purpose of your life. 

An opportunity to investigate (ask questions) or integrate (“heal/transform”) premature thoughts, memories, emotions, associations and perceptions we have about the story our life and life in general.  Do they determine Who We Are or do the inform us to Who We Are?
