Without and within

I looked without and I was scared...
I looked within and I found courage-

I looked without and saw confusion...
I looked within and things were clear-

I went outside seeking love and my heart was broken...
I came within and was embraced by endless love-

I went outward and was shackled...
I came within and found freedom-

Love me tender-

"...at the end of the day all anyone wants is just to be loved, I guess..." She said as she broke into sobs.

We will sometimes worship those we love, and those whom we worship we will eventually crucify...
That which we admire we shall also at times envy.

Ben stated to me that the world has historically destroyed its heroes. I wonder  why it is so? We build and we break. To what end? Is it ourselves we seek to destroy or the other? The satisfaction born out of destruction is very short lived I have experienced. We find happiness in synthesis not wreckage, and yet, we plunder and pillage- resources, the world, each other! I wonder if it is pain that seeks destruction?

At the end of the day, all anyone wants is to be loved...
I guess-

It is what it is-

In stark clarity comes awareness 
Despite denial, truth shines through
And whilst it is a bitter pill-
It remains that what is
(And such is life)


"Mirror mirror on the wall..."

Upon observing our reflection we learn ourselves...
Such is the mirroring effect-
When offered such a neutral observation, we can objectively face the inner self. In this process a "noticing" happens. When we notice things we are aware-
In awareness the process of change becomes possible.
In my reflected self I was able to see. In seeing I am aware...

As I walked the ocean sands it occurred to me, the meaning of Jesus's words "forgive them lord, for they know not..."

We are a product of our torments. We react out of our torments. Forgiveness is easier to come by when viewed thusly-

In hearing my travel companion speak of higher order functioning, a rising above the primal urges- it struck me. The reasons why so many are stuck in the primal urges. I saw reflected, so much, in that simple statement.

Until a tormented soul has come to peace with the torment, how can it rise above to a higher order function?

In that recognition came the words
..."forgive them lord"...

And such was my understanding as I walked the ocean sands...
