THE MEASURE OF TIMELESSNESS

A full-sky NASA map of the oldest light in the universe — the aftermath of the Big Bang. Colors indicate “warmer” (red) and “cooler” (blue) spots. The oval shape is a projection to display the whole sky; similar to the way the globe of the earth can be represented as an oval.

 

THE MEASURE OF TIMELESSNESS

The pathway to Knowledge is paved with Love.

The measure of distance is unusually incomprehensible.

The vision of Destiny is absolutely unfathomable.

That Faith is required begs the question.

IN SEARCH OF LEADERSHIP. Once an essay – now a love story

lafayette compound 008

LOVE ON A HIGH WIRE

It is impossible as head-nodders for us to learn the true subject of our gossip.

But chatter we do,
nod we do,
smile and frown and clap we do…

like starlings at early dawn,
we protest, quarrel and yawn.

We flap, we rustle, we cling together and rise afeather…
seeking the leader
whose silent tether

greets the grey of gloomy,
now gone.

As sundown teases, murmeration ceases;  with one last rustle, we rhyme with the rhythm of billowing blather,
our restlessness astir
as darkness overcomes.

Tomorrow we rise a-more
and like dawnings come before…

we’ll dismount from our roosts, our heads awaggle,we’ll gossip and gaggle; we’ll harp – we will haggle

And as the bloated carcasses of our forgotten comrades add nourishment to the earth, one or two will ask “do you remember whatshisname?”.

“Oh yes” we reply, “he had so many strange, new ideas”.

And with heads abob we bestow our final, limited approval in measured doses…

and our world nods approval to the brief observance of continuity,
forgetting yet
another
Love Story.

IN THE LANGUAGE OF LOVERS OR BACK SCRATCHERS

 

lafayette compound 008

THE LANGUAGE OF LOVERS

EMPATHY is the language of Lovers; SYMPATHY on the other hand is the language of the aloof.

Empathy is the Affirmation of the Fearless, the Willingness of the Faithful, and the home of Compassionate, Freedom Lovers everywhere. Empathy is outbound and frees those who know Love to share it. “Accept the love”; be willing to share it; to “Accept the Love and pass it on”.

THE BACK-SCRATCHER’S MANTRA

SYMPATHY is the ammunition of the compettive poeple  everywhere. it segues from Been there – done that (I’ll never go there again.)”,  “I know whatcha mean”,  “Yup, I can identify with that; why I remember…”. Theirs is torsthe voice of Approval, at best; a bargaining chip; “I’ll make your world safer but you’ll owe me; know what I mean, know what I mean, huh, huh, do ya huh?”

IDEA – PATH – GOAL

lafayette compound 008

 IDEA – PATH – GOAL

IDEA

The birth of an idea is much like the birth of life itself and the future of that idea is much like the birth of the individual who gave this idea life and affirmed that new life by creating a goal.

PATH

Some say focus on the goal; others say when in doubt, do the next thing without judging, without predicting; without expectation.

GOAL
It is a popular idea to stay focused on the goal. When we do that however we are focusing on the death of the idea.

STOP LOOK LISTEN

(This article was first posted on my marketing blog, NinetyDayWonder on Friday, November 14, 2013. At the end of the article was a message which promised “More tomorrow.”  On November 15, 2013 I was on my way to The Gallery at City Hall. As I neared my destination I STOPPED at a stop sign. I LOOKED both ways and I LISTENED to my inner voice telling me the coast was clear. I nearly lost my life in the middle of that intersection as I was struck by a lime green taxi. I was charged with failure to yield the right of way. I defended that charge and lost. )

When we discover that something we are doing is creating problems, the first inclination is to stop what we are doing. Perhaps that is a good idea; perhaps not.

The important thing to remember is that whatever it is that we believe is creating problems exists because it is overcoming problems. When we stop doing this thing, the good stops along with the bad.

If stopping is our choice, let that choice be momentary. And, let the purpose of that choice be to gather information.

THE POWERS OF LOVE AND WILL

THE POWERS OF LOVE AND WILL

 

Human power is will power. .
God Power is Love.

Love is the Greatest Power of all.

Love Heals.
Love Forgives.
Love Perfects.

Human power is will power.
Will is born of NEED.

Our need is for safety.

Our first gift at birth is Fear.
Love is the only gift greater than Fear.

I Accept God’s Love; It is unconditional.
I Accept God’s Love; it is forgiving.
I Accept God’s Love;It is healing.

I accept The Love and I pass it on.
