AWE/mirror of heart

The cosmos plays us with illusion: it mirrors and inverts perception to draw us towards light, truth, unity... We want it, but first we must survive. We get the metaphor, just an old upside down one, then we sit on the record scratch and bump bump into illusion like big sweet babies. Inversion is a somewhat kinder road for the real to be revealed. Can we cultivate love and trust for our beloved nemesis/selves over the lash. What is it in the eye that reverses all things so carefully? Where the eye sees out, it looks in. Only through our receptiveness to what is, does the "mystery " vaporize. There is a Mystic's Awe that Multiplies. We were made from stars, and our potential is to be a vehicle for the cosmos, but most of us are hallucinating a lot of the time... We often wear our tomb stone around our neck like an albatross: Here lies [IWM]. Die before you die. Die to broken thoughts. Imagination brings us closer to and further from the real. Is it creative or is it separating. If i was that blind, how blind am i Now? Enter into some kind of communication with a larger reality. Drop some veils-(not all, please)- of the imagination. We are naked, together, slave and free, yet were afraid of XTC. Love is the intention behind the intention. "Stay the same. Change." Who's voice is that? Loosen the tourniquet on your heart. Do a head stand to see something different, be a fool and let the blood of the heart fill your head. Just don't be stupid. Time IS love and love is what is passing. Also will the music of this breath and heart beat. Make your house your home before you fly away.

BALL OF FIRE/EARFQUAKE/FULL MOON/ ROAD TRIP/SMART GIRLS CRY/ crap i'm 50

Sometimes you have to let your heart be broken by life.   Again and again and again the merry go round turns.  Riding on the back of the motorcycle this saturday viewing 200 miles of California's major coast line, where the pacific is so fat and sparkly that the horizon disappears in places, I kept thinking all this is so fleeting so awesome and so constant all at once.  I saw a huge mountain lion sitting naughty and alert in a produce field and was glad to be moving at 70 miles per hour.  It is ridiculously beautiful here.   Tomorrow i have a surgery.  All is well, just rolling with the waves, the punches, various shapes of the heart and the gold green hills of today tomorrow and yesterday.
