Of Love and Kite Flying...


My heart is the kite,
aloft in the winds of love,
taking flight into the sky of life.

But, not too high or too far away from the pilot mind who controls it, as the strings of a painful past experience keep it tethered to the earth. The mind lets the heart dance in the breeze but is always there keeping the strings tight and the flight controlled. What would happen if he let the strings go? Would it fly away, so high that it will never be seen again? Would it spiral out of control and crash to the earth, broken on the sands? The pilot knows that in the past his control has made the kite soar with joy and also smash violently into the sand. Is he any better than the chaos of the wind itself? He knows he will never let go. So here he is, fighting the winds, straining at the end of the strings. He will not let it fly away today… He will gently bring it back down to the sand. His tired hands will wrap the strings up, and with care fold the kite then put it back into its protective bag. For now apprehension prevails as he walks alone across the sands carrying his precious kite. He knows he will fly it again someday and pray that next time the winds will be so strong that he has no choice but to be lifted from the earth and fly away with his heart… Only then will the pilot mind and kite heart will become one.

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 sys

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. -Ziv http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Janus_%28mythology%29 http://www.livius.org/ja-jn/janus/janus.html http://encyclopedia.laborlawtalk.com/Janus_(mythology)

The Dark Side...

Do we dare say that the moon is two pieces? The light part and the dark part? To do so would make a person look to be a fool. Everyone knows that the Moon is one entity and it's relationship to the light that creates the apparent division. We look at our self and see two (or more) parts, separate pieces that stand alone, a light side and a dark side, the funny and the serious, the virgin and the whore. The truth is that the division is just an illusion, a construct of our unwillingness to intergrate it all into one. It is a trick of the light of our minds. Also powerful, is the reinforcement for this behavior we get from society. Only acceptable if we act not as we truly are, but only what the time and place will allow us to be without pain of punishment in all its ugly forms. What would happen if we saw everything as it is... One complete and undivided unity of energy. With little ripples and eddies that make up more influential parts of space in time. We are a swirlin
