The Mind Jungle

•April 25, 2016 • Leave a Comment

Trudging through this morass of emotions, thoughts and actions I come to a halt… What could be more self-defeating than this… a blockade!

image

Metaphysical spheres of life cascading about the wilderness of past living. Actions contributing to effects, one of Newton’s Laws of Physics: For every action or force there is an equal response to it, a force of action in the opposite direction. A constant battle of power without direct willful intent, the opposite of “poetry in motion”, an indiscriminate source of haphazard destruction.

Birth, death, the stages of one’s life flash past my eyes with incredible speed. Loose ends and dying embers of hope challenge my existence with yet another new start, a beginning with no end in sight, a transient being shattered before it’s time, no longer capable of maintaining even the occupation of one’s own orbit.

A pit of darkness looms ahead and behind. Fathomless oceans of old desires, wants and deedless determination culminating in… In what? An end too foreboding to comprehend for its very own existence cannot be accepting if one wishes to remain amongst the living.

And if not you may ask, if life is no longer a part of the plan, then what?

That remains to be seen my friend if you will but rise with me again tomorrow.

 

 

Thoughts Are Things

•April 2, 2016 • Leave a Comment

“Wait a minute, wait just one minute young fellow. Just where do you think you’re going?”

Um, well sir, I was just trying to make it up to the next level there. See I’m wanting to…image

“Hold on there boy, you can’t pass through here.  This here passage is for the people who have been already approved, know what I mean?”

Not, not ex-exactly, sir. See I thought that…

“Well see now boy that’s your problem right there, you’ve been thinking.”

I thought, I mean, I believe that, as I have read and learned from watching, that anyone who really wants to can go right on up the road, all the way to the top sir. And that’s what I’m meaning to do.

“Well now…”

imageReally mister. I’ve been struggling seems like my whole life now and it’s finally time to break loose, know what I mean, sir?

“What?”

It’s like, well, I finally and I mean after years of hard work, determination, learning and applying that learning, I found the road that my passion could run on. So sir, instead of bumping up against yet another wall my passion just busted through the walls in front of me and I kept on going to where I could see the top of the hill you know, where the “goodness” lies!image

“Well now…”

I can feel the warmth, the white heat of the higher passion, emanating from the top of the hill. I can’t quite see it yet but I believe it’s there, heck I know it’s there because sir, if I can think it and believe it, why I’ll see it!

“You may have something there son, yet still, I can’t let you pass here, you just plain out have not been approved.”

Approved?

Approved by w, uh whom?  Whatever…

“Why the people of the Valley” son, you know, the Ghost people.”

image

G- ghost people?

So that’s what’s been holding me back. So how do they do it?

 

Do they put up walls so that no matter how hard I push, shove and run ahead, I keep banging- POW!- head on into those walls? Is that it mister?

“Nah, no need for any of that son, why it’s the walls in your own mind boy. You know, those thoughts you think… ‘I can’t do it’, ‘I’m not good enough’, I’m nothing but a failure’, I’ll never make it up and through’. Why it’s those thoughts son, the thoughts in your own little mind. The space between your own ears. Ha!

Remember that train you used to play with when you were just a tiny tyke, Thomas it was. ‘I think I can, I think I can’, and time and again that little train kept chugging along and finally he arrived, well darn, he arrived at the station, you know.
You learned back then, heck you were only two but you knew what it was… ‘If I think I can I will and if I think I can’t I also will’. It’s the law son, the law of the mind. Always remember that, ‘Thoughts Are Things’ boy and you’ll be alright. Yep, you will surely get there- in due time.”

So, I sit here and think. “What should I do?” Mister reminds me of my earliest thoughts and teachings, the way I should go but then he doesn’t let me pass! It just doesn’t make sense, no sense at all. How am I supposed to think my way through these darn Walls?!

If you think you can, you can.

Thoughts Are things incredibly powerful things.

Pursue your dreams with PASSION!    

Woah- where did that come from? It, it came from me. From my inner me. The same one inside me I’ve known from the beginning of time. Well not all time, just my time, my beginning.

You can do it. I can do it!

Who is that inside of me? Who is that doing the talking? I know your voice as it’s very familiar. Sounds kind of like me alright but deeper, stronger.

I AM

What?!

I AM THE GREAT AM

THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA

YOU ARE MADE IN OUR IMAGE

YOU WILL GET THROUGH

DO NOT LOOK TO THE LEFT OR THE RIGHT

YOU ARE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS!

YOU ARE MY CREATION                                  

FROM MY OWN INSPIRING THOUGHTS

MY THOUGHTS ARE YOUR THOUGHTS    

MOVE AHEAD

GO NOW AND POSSESS THE LAND

HAVE I NOT COMMANDED YOU?

I AM YOUR SHIELD AND YOUR SWORD    

I AM ALL THAT YOU WILL EVER NEED      

GO THROUGH                                              

MOVE AHEAD                                                    

GO FORWARD

Alone At Night In The Dark

It’s just over that hill John, I swear I saw it clear as day…

You don’t know what you saw boy, it’s just what you think you seen has got my mind ruminating here. Why don’t you just sit back right here and give it a rest, alright?

Help me I’m dying. Help help help me…

Did you hear th-that?!

image

 

 

 

The cry continued to echo across the corridor of the otherwise peaceful valley. No way to mistake it for the cry of an animal or the blowing of the cool evening breeze. No, this was a human voice crying in the night.

image

 

 

 

Help me please, I’m dying…

Shh, quiet man. You’ll wake the dead.

Not funny John, not funny at all.

And what makes you think I’m trying to be funny boy? Something about my demeanor maybe? There is nothing funny up here son where the dead live. Nothing to laugh about for them – or for you!

image

 

Look!

 

 

There!

Ahh, that’s nothin’ but your own mind playing tricks about you son, trying to keep your brain in gear you know.image

That’s all it is.

 

Take my hand if your so afraid. Go ahead, take it.

John. John. John…!

Encounter With The Beast

•March 7, 2016 • Leave a Comment

No no no, I shouted as The Beast came toward me with surprising quickness…

image

 

Frightened beyond words I quickly backed up and turned to face the sea.

Of course, I had to be standing at the precipice of a three hundred foot drop to the dark ocean below.

image

 

No matter, it was do or die.

Dive or die would be a more accurate statement.

So I did, dive that is, off the cliff’s high point to fall through the air at an ever increasing speed until I finally plunged through the frigid expanse of midnight and the black waters of the great Atlantic.

image

 

 

 

COLD, yes… but alive, for now at least.

Between the shock of impact and black waves of freezing waters, I reached upwards grasping for the surface air.

image

 

My thoughts came alive along with the natural instinct for survival.

 

Push, I thought, use your arms and legs, propel yourself out and away, away from the cliff and the…what?

Why The Beast of course!

image

 

Move out to anywhere but here!

As I faught against the cold turbulent waters, my eyes kept searching for – it. What in the world was this thing or is this thing I should say?  I’ve never seen anything like it before, not in the movies, on TV or even in my worst nightmares. IT was a truly horrible sight and an overwhelming experience for sure.

Ever so slowly I drifted closer to shore and finally was able to reach the safety of land.

Then I looked up and saw…

In My Cell

•January 31, 2016 • Leave a Comment

In My Cell now I weep alone…

image

Scant light penetrating the darkness through a single window.

Reaching through the mental haze I grasp at the opportunity to, well… to survive another moment, another hour, perhaps even another day.

image

I fight the battle in my mind, a turn of events, the pain, more darkness descends to reach below me then scoop up my being.

 

Carry on dear friend carry on, for alone your were brought into this world and certainly alone you will be upon your leave.

Cry out in the night also during day, as your struggle continues, continues, continues.

Continues onward towards the fray.
