I've been spending a lot of time lately exploring my creative side through photography and poetry. I have always been a scientifically minded person spending my time studying astronomy, psychology, quantum mechanics, and working in hard-core neuro-surgery and bio-psychology labs, but during the time I've studied magic the other part of my brain has been functioning at a higher level seeking integration with the more dominant left-brained part of me. Its been amazing, beautiful...I love being able to see the world through an artist's eye. You really do catch glimpses of things that normally you wouldn't take the time to see or experience. So, here's another poem I wrote recently. Its about love, because right now I'm in love with so many things. The world is opening itself up to me and the boundaries of mental constructs and opinionated living are falling away. Nothing is black and white, everything is One. Btw the picture above is one that I've taken over the past few months...its one of my faves :)
My heart is sreaming out the winds of existence.
Something so real has come to take over.
Why is it that everytime she feels she
Spends her life pleasing others
Convinced its what brings life?
But now a sail has come to guide the boat
Not to overcome but
To become one with her
And conquer the restless seas.
She sees the sun on the horizon
Opening up a new found dawn.
The light penetrates weaving
New universes within her.
Is that how life on earth was created?
Not by a god, but a passion...
Can an atom fight the beautiful violence of passion?
When you are in love
Does the universe move for you?
It does in mine
It flips, and turns, ascends and descends
Creating beauty, and trust, sentiment, and fire
Binding together that which brings
Futures and pasts into co-existence,
Creating wholes where there were once holes.
Putting perfection to rest as it accepts all
And thus rests in true perfection.
