A Journey Revisited, but Still Relevant

These writings come from a crossroad in my life. I am not sure exactly what it was at the time, it just was. Each day we experience the choice to live in the present moment or worry about past or future conflicts . First thing in the morning, I try to be still in waking and make the choice to live for that day. Part of this ongoing process has led me to dig up some things I have written over the years and include them within this part of my journey. Would these be considered something of the past? Something to ponder, I suppose. I look it as the universe giving me a nudge in the right direction.

The Journey

 In the intricate
depths, mysteriously hiding,
Is the very person,
you are to become
 
Seeking life’s
momentous challenges,
opening up
the mesmerizing
whole, the sum.
 
The greatest obstacle you
face, is your own fear.
The gripping reality
of what living your life
means.
 
Unlocking door, with keys
found all around,
in obscure places.
Senseless as it sometimes
seems.
 
Once on that journey
of faith and truth,
although anxious, you
may be awestruck
by the light.
 
Settle into living
life, and loving yourself.
Honestly assess the process.
Spread new wings and
keep your goals
in sight.

Self Evaluation
 
The passion you have
Is only part of
what you were
positioned to
achieve.
 
The inward you
isn’t for everyone else
to examine, judge,
and try to perceive.
 
Judge only yourself
through the
looking-glass,
You may need
to modify
what you see.
 
Love all, “that,”
around you.
Only love,
can set your
soul and spirit
free.
 
Don’t take
things so literal,
for time here is
not a perpetual
pendulum.
 
Forgiveness
will work
wondrous miracles,
In your own life,
and that of others,
This is a
Given.
 
Remember,
you can only make changes
for yourself
and your life’s calling.
 
Be keen,
own your responses,
Attempt
Reacting to keep
others from falling.
