Inferno of Life

The inferno of the living
is not something that will be;
if there is one,
it is what is already here,
the inferno where we live every day,
that we form by being together.
There are two ways to escape suffering it.
The first is easy for many:
accept the inferno and become such
a part of it that you can no longer see it.
The second is risky and demands
constant vigilance and apprehension:
seek and learn to recognize who and what,
in the midst of inferno,
are not inferno,
then make them endure,
give them space.
~ Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities

Live Life

I am.
I always was.
I always am.
I shall always be.

The past and the future
meet in the eternal now.
I am the eternal now.

I exist.
I am.
I am in the past.
I am in the future.
I am in the now.

One is all, and all are one.
We are one.
Everything I see
is a part of myself.
Everything I can imagine
is a part of myself.
I could not imagine something
that is not.
Everyone I interact with
is a part of myself.

Whatever I put out, I get it back.
My state of being matters,
it crystallises in my circumstances.
The way I respond to my circumstances
reinforces my state of being.

When I see an echo of an old belief
I respond with peace in my heart.
My actions are matched with
the highest version of myself
I can imagine in that moment.

Everything changes,
and everything transforms
from one form of life
to yet another.

It is a constant flow of life.
It is the heart of all existence.
Nothing can perish,
nothing can cease being.

I am always new.
I am always history free.
I am always consequence free.
Yet I can create an illusion of consequence.

Everything is possible,
yet not everything is probable.
It all depends on my synchronicity.
What I choose to explore
shall present itself to me.

What I believe to be true, is true.
All illusions are made out of different beliefs.
Yet there is only one knowledge.
It is the wisdom of old, yet new.

The thought gains the power,
when it merges with the feeling.
I feel what I desire.
I always receive what I ask for.
I always manifest instantly with no effort.
My wisdom is to be aware of what I request.

So it be.
So it is.
I ask for love,
and I welcome bliss.

Tree of Life

Behind the man is the Tree of Life, bearing twelve fruits, and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil is behind the woman; the serpent is twining round it.

Good and Bad in Us

There is so much Good in the Worst of Us,
And so much Bad in the Best of Us,
That it hardly Behooves any of Us
To Talk about the rest of Us.
