Another 'Common' Misunderstanding...
Another common misunderstanding of those still living under an umbrella of clouded judgments, opinions, and ego, is this; when you come across that déjà vu sensation that you have been in a particular situation before, it is because you have been, numerous times. However, because you went against your intuition you never experienced the lesson within the framework. Therefore, you are presented...

*How do you have fun and be responsible?
*a question I was asked via text by a friend of mine, who is presently getting a bit hammered and has to drive. Simple, you enjoy being present in this moment of deep enjoyment and release without overindulging in vices that present your heart no true pleasure. For the temptation of the mind is the most destructive.
Pen & Paper
irebzbreathemusic: The words come naturally, Like a song to a musician, A poet’s hushing gentle words, A singer’s voice. Pen and paper. Create a world, A fantasy, A dream, A reality. From where does the heart whisper? Bleed? Right here, my love. I know peace of mind, I know my hand as an instrument, And my thoughts as a physical apparatus. A drawing’s life. Where has this come...
neverthegreyer: can I, just for a a second passing through an hourglass pretend that your words might be for me, that the tales you weave are for my ears,the sweeps of softness meant to make me feel as needed as whoever those words are really for feels,and knows the taste of your lips like fire trapped inside skin, can I just for a second leading into a minute,pretend that those words are maybe...
mikefrawley replied to your post: Happy Thanksgiving. How true, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Hopefully whatever is troubling you will pass soon. My thanks and appreciation friend, it has all indeed passed and I have regained my sense of self. I do hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving as well.
May God bless you and your family. My love and best wishes. While I am faced with trying times, I am doing my very best to remember that there is still abundance in my life to be beyond grateful for. I do hope you recognize the same for yourself. A breath in itself is enough to be thankful for.
This, right here, is my only outlet.
With all that I am presently faced with, I need to vent, to scream, a release outside of the tears shed from within that become visible when one’s eyes cannot contain the emotion. I’m focused on fleeing from these feelings of no longer being.

auradacity-of replied to your post: A Real Man - #Tip1 and women too at this point in the ‘earthly uncertainty’ dance. Seriously if they’re solo or a family unit, a woman should contribute to this lesson. It’s definitely important. (thanks for the reminder….rechecking stocks) Absolutely correct, Aura :) this should also apply to my single mothers that might doing this on their own. Though I am...
A Real Man - #Tip1
A real man should always teach his children to be prepared for the unexpected. By keeping enough food and water for at least 2 weeks longer than usual, he helps them understand the value of being ready for whatever circumstances might come in the near future. This is a responsible father and husband.
Tears flow, to cleanse the moments of despair and repair that which has been deemed unfair. Fair? What is fair? Getting your way in every situation faced? If so, would that not leave another begging for the same sense of fairness? Then such could not possibly be just. I designate my heart to a place of isolation so that my meditation can guide me back to patience. Embracing every emotion felt,...

karbarkalediscope replied to your post: Tim Tebow. TT is also a Christian…on the field and off so everytime I see him play I think ‘look at God’ Couldn’t agree more with you, though the religious classification doesn’t mean much to me because of what religion does to the planet…I understand your sentiments completely.
Has there ever been a more heavily criticized winning athlete in the NFL? I mean, when he loses a game the I told you so’s never stop, but when he wins, the harsh criticism and pessimistic cheer never stop either. Week to week Tim Tebow is doubted, called out, and expected to fail by his own peers and analysts of the game, both publicly and behind the scenes. And week to week, Tim Tebow...
