Time

In this eternal space, bounded by the time

Seconds tick away and I continue to write these rhymes

The world wakes up to chase after dimes,

Many lose the sense of time…

Some will commit horrible crimes…

Domestic violence…blame it on excess wine

Meanwhile the children suffering and crying…

Clinging onto the past, this vicious cycle will continue unless we grab hold of the time…

Become aware of the possibilities and align,

Our choices and actions, guided by hopeful times…

Unlock the latent potential,

Uncover it with rhymes…

Body, Soul and The Mind

Image: Samurai Art

I search the vastness,
The deep recesses of my mind.
I close my eyes, but it only turns me blind.
Staring in this void,
No answers I can find.
An epiphany occurs,
The pieces of puzzle I must bind,
Body, Soul and the mind.
So, I plunge in my heart, I heard that’s where the Soul resides.
The darkness rings a familiar hollow,
Like the one in my mind.
Still searching…
Maybe it’s the way I am spending my time,
I plan to change, but the body’s still left behind.
Through hindsight, I realise,
The stress response built along the course of my life.
Progress seems slow, but it will compound over time.
I try to configure my bearings,
So I set upon this journey, in the darkness of the night.
Astrolabe in my hand, I reach a turning point,
I must sail and ride the waves,
For I am the warrior of the light!
Light above, light below, light all around me!
Darkness is no more, so long as I hold the pieces of this puzzle, tight…

The Sun

What we see as light and warmth, is the result of nuclei fusing to form a single atom. The hydrogen atoms collide and form helium, releasing vast amount of energy that sustains life on earth.

Sun is a powerful natural source of energy. Similarly, there are some humans who possess traits, that we may refer to them as the Sun, in a metaphorical sense.

They are good listeners, they dispel away negativity. They shine their light and wisdom upon others. They spread love. The light they carry stems from their hearts, is reflected in their actions and intellect. They possess qualities and traits to redirect negative energy (talk, emotions and feelings) and influence a positive change for the receiver of that energy. This is how they conduct themselves when they listen.

Do you know someone who you can call Sun? A lot of psychoanalysts, counsellors and spiritual leaders fit this description. I wonder where can we find and encounter more Suns?

The sun cometh

A new day beckons, oh doers of good, arise

The Caller calleth, Wilt thou answer?

For every deed there is a special prize

Thy intention must be pure, free of malice

Thine wine served in chalice
