The wave crashes...

Today I saw the wave, it was a slow moving rise in the ocean.
As it approached, I could feel the water pull toward it, like a massive breath in.
Then the swell, it was incredible, from low to high, the power was impressive...
I am watching the life of a soul drawn in to its own rhythm.
Breathe in... Breathe out, it is such a simple concept but at the same time such a powerful and critical pattern.

So here I breathe, as my soul crashes upon the shore. I am the wave, I am the ocean, I am the rhythm of life. The patterns of survival. It is all here and at the same time, everywhere.

What should I say, is it contrary to the natural patterns to want more?
To seek the truth of the patterns. To find the source of the pain.

All I want is a day filled with light, to have the clouds not rain down on me, but to feel the warm sun on my shoulders. The light of the star telling me it is okay, that I can move on and that tomorrow will be brighter than today.

It is too much to ask? Have my years of dedication been all for naught?

The wheel turns, the sun will rise soon in the east... and what will I have to welcome the new day? What can I give?

All I can give, is my breath. It is my offering to the heavens, because everything else is an illusion.

Breathe in..... Breathe out....

  1. No, it is not contrary, yet it is rare. Rare and beautiful.

    I stand bare feet by the sea, in the sand, letting the wave reach me.

    It is dark, it is cold, but I would not move.

    It comes and goes, and I stand in awe witnessing it in motion, guessing the deepness, delighted by its powerful yet silent language.

    It has been winter too long.

    I am conspiring, with the sun. Will he hurry and kiss their crystal waters with his warm gentle beams.

    Little I care, if it is cold, I step up, and swim in its waters, following the path given by the stars reflecting on it.

    Soon it all will be bright.

About the Rune "Algiz"...

I have been asked about the Rune and what it means, and after a bit of online research I found out quite a few interesting things. Before this search, I knew it meant "safehaven" or "protection". There are some interesting things to interpret from it's meaning and my use of it. Seems the Dark Lord was a guardian/protector... and one of my favorite finds during this search for the meaning was the following bit of inspiration that is from the www.tarahill.com site. You will also see this below, but I wanted to put it here too for emphasis.


"In terms of the journey, we have passed through death and rebirth, and must now face the Guardian before returning to our world. It is he who charges us to use our new-found power wisely. The person can no longer be simply concerned with their own personal development, but must now consider the effect that their actions may have on others. This is a crucial turning point, and the person will either choose to adopt a system…

Open letter to god Janus...

Dear god Janus,
It is comforting to know that the feeling symbolized in the god Janus is not new to humanity.
Facing in different directions at the same time.
past / future, young / old, winter / spring, transition...

I am feeling like you lately, facing where I have been while looking to the future.



The question I would like to ask is...
Are you always like that, constantly split, or do you ever get to look in one direction and devote yourself to it?

It seems to me that you cannot devote yourself to one direction, unless you were to cut off one of your faces. This would of course change who you are, and leave you disfigured and unrecognizable as your former self. But is that a bad thing? Would the disfigurement make you more beautiful in other ways?

Hey Janus, if you are out there, any advice would be welcome.

The Dancing Wu Li Masters...

The earth has been spinning on it's axis for as long as I can remember... (3 decades).
Things have been becoming what they are for millions of years.
Yet, when the asteroid hits, they will say it happened today.
To that I will laugh, and say, You short sighted fools, it happened at the big bang, you just now noticed it. Is there choice or has it all been evolving from the rules of the universe since the rules began.

I look to the people with short sighted natures, who like to believe that they have some great cosmic role to play. I look to them to enhance my illusion. I want to believe they are right.

But here I am, on this crazy hunk of fermions, zinging through space, on a course that only the rules know. Finding myself responsible for my effects.

What a joke, the cosmic joke, you don't even know the process for digesting your own food, yet you are supposed to be responsible for your actions. You are a monkey... blind to the truth of the universe and acting like you kno…
