In your light

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.” ― Rumi

The Moods of Rumi



Is the tree one, or is the tree made up of separate parts?

Perhaps it depends on how you look at it. Most would say  it is all one plant, but one thing to think deeply about, there would be no individual branches, no individual leaves, no trunk, if the root was not there to feed the rest  of the tree the water, for the upper parts to sprout forth.

The roots and the water are what makes the parts work together as one, in cohesiveness and balance.

The parts do not make the root live, they are not the source. The living root and water is the life source, not the parts. You could chop the tree down and the roots would sprout a new trunk, new branches, and in turn new leaves.

Only through the roots existence and life giving water, do the parts grow in life. Without the root and water, the rest would cease to exist!

Now take nature, science and mathematical forms like the Mandelbrot set and fractals, they form strange complexities, endless connected similar fractals into infinity, perfect. Yet change the equation and  it ceases to exist.

We are but the sum of the parts to the whole, we are not the god source inside like some Gurus preach, but tied to and through to the connection to the god source by the root and water inside and out.

Only through the creator, through the root and the life giving waters living in us feeding the spiritual connections, are we as one. Be careful what you drink!

~ The Ominous Skies ~

From the great ceiling,
Kinetic sight forms from the floor,
Earth moving through mystery and mastery,
Natures natural beauty transforms,
Seductively transpires,
Opens visual doors.

Shooting across the twinkling expanse,
Surreal in moment and light,
Are we to busy to notice,
What transpires in the night?

Silently it calls to sit quietly,
View the moving wealth it streams,
The greatest show on earth,
Gifted to the eyes and spirit,
Of human beings.

Creations sparkling miracles,
Calls, invites you to become one,
Lay back in the open fields,
Relax and simply watch,
Stars in their celestial playground having fun.

Bittersweet: Written by Rumi

To see beyond, put away your preconceptions. Listen quietly for the voice calling you on the wind, "in your tingling spirit", that is the one. Reach for it, let your spirit swell.

There is a mystery and miracle inside you, all around you in the invisible ether, and above beyond the veil. It awaits you for healing, to relieve you of all your burdens, to fill your spiritual cup with pure love unimaginable. But you must begin to listen for it, feel it, walk towards it and embrace it in spirit. In that moment of awareness overflowing, when you feel the connection between here and there, the one will awaken you, and you will begin to truly see beyond the self and the veil. Where the one calls you, and waits for you all day and night.

"Before we can rise above and become "as one" with ourselves and each other, we must learn to rise above and become "as one" with the Big Spirit."
