Valentines, hearts, love, and all that jazz-

Another year...
Another me and I see so much more than these old eyes perceive.

This year I am me. A more complete me than I have ever been.
I am no longer lost. I am more found than I have ever been.
And I have awareness, in some part, of the meaning of life.
If I could put it simply- I understand Gandalf and where he said I would end up some day.
I am getting there.
I am on my way-
And I am completely at ease.
I am a little scared but that is normal.
I know what energy is...
And what it means.
I know what depletes mine...
And what feeds it.

"...the sun itself sees not 'till heaven clears..."

SONNET 148 (William Shakespeare)

O me, what eyes hath Love put in my head,
Which have no correspondence with true sight!
Or, if they have, where is my judgment fled,
That censures falsely what they see aright?
If that be fair whereon my false eyes dote,
What means the world to say it is not so?
If it be not, then love doth well denote
Love's eye is not so true as all men's 'No.'
How can it? O, how can Love's eye be true,
That is so vex'd with watching and with tears?
No marvel then, though I mistake my view;
The sun itself sees not till heaven clears.
   O cunning Love! with tears thou keep'st me blind,
   Lest eyes well-seeing thy foul faults should find.

to see a world in a grain of sand,
and a heaven in a wildflower,
hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour

(william blake)

Do you know how to dissolve into formlessness?
Know the vastness of a single fleck of nothing upon your sleeve.
And even with your bigger size
You realize
That the meaning of you
Is just a dream, within a dream
A pale reflection
Of a delectable confection
Laid bare before you
In the minutiae
- - -
Do you know of energy?
The fluidity of humility
The acceptance of everyday
Knowing that everything
As it comes
Simply is
- - -
Did you ever learn how to be static?
Whilst in the throes of flux
The torment of diffusion
That demanded stillness
- - -
When it happens would you recognize?
The expansion of awareness
That leaves you clueless
Forever teeter tottering on the brink of understanding
"Ana-al Haq!"
