Who you really are

Have you ever looked around you,
and just thought “Wait”!?
Somethings going wrong herelet’s change it before it’s too late?
This world only exists because love does,
yet it’s filled with so much hate!  This world is filled with lost people, pretending to be alive,
when they’re really the walking dead instead, trying to see the light,
living their lives without any real hope, groping for dope,
in products, drugs, on the Internet or on t.v, following trends in magazines,manipulated without end, always acting, always something to pretend,never letting the mask drop, right up until the end.

 

 

The thick fog of despair fills the air,
people are suffering, they just really don’t know where,
to go to to find something to hold onto,
many never truly start believing, or conceiving,
that the very thing they’re looking for is inside of them,
the love they’re running from or to, is them, and me, and you.

 

 

What can I do, except tell you I love you?
Not because you’re a Muslim, a Christian or a Jew,
not because you worship the gods like a good Hindu,
but just because you’re you… because you are you.
Who are you if you’re not these characters, ways of behaving, roles or descriptions though?
Let me share that with you, it’s a song I have to sing: You are life itself, you are astounding, you are everything.

 

If you could really feel and know this, if you could just forget everything,
you would feel so blessed,
you would see before you do anything,
before you compete you already are the best,
you already are complete,and whatever you need to receive to achieve will be given, when you ask with all your heart.

 

 

There’s simply nothing this universe withholds from those who know about the sacred and secret art,
of living in tune with the voice right there in the heart,
talking to yourself some say is a sign of madness, but that’s not true at all,
because the whole universe and all of the people in it, are right there inside of me and you,
there truly is no other, no enemy, no stranger, if you can bend and see,
if you can be as infinitely flexible in your mind, as the infinite creator god inside of you and me.

 

You don’t need to see any miracles to believe in the power of god, life or the universe,because you already are the miracle, you already are the power, the wealth, the bursting creativity,
and you were born perfect, except you didn’t know it,and so i know many have thought about throwing it,
all away and cursing the day, on which they were born,
and letting life be forgotten, forsaken, and forlorn.  But now you can be reminded, you can unwind or rewind whatever was, or you thought will be,
and now you can know: life itself is the greatest gift, the sweetest mystery,
everything else is just wrapping the present up in new forms,
so step into the present moment and the presence of yourself, discover what a gift you are,
if you can’t see your own value for yourself, let me tell you, without exaggeration,
when you smile from your heart you shine like a star.  there is a music and a melody to your soul, it’s divine, glorious and interstellar,your origin is not only your parents, it is the light which you see shining down at you when you look at the sun,it’s the mind and heart and soul and belly of the whole cosmos pulsating within you,ever onwards, right from your birth, but the truth of this life can only be seen
when we live in harmony, when we stop damaging ourselves and agree to be what we always have been able to be,when we live by the laws written on and in our hearts, neither dealing out death, or holding our breath, but simply being true.  This is the whole of the recipe, to escape from feeling blue,
to escape depression, anxiety, illness, sickness, delusion and schizophrenia too,
it’s all about being true to the real you, going deep down inside where the truth abides,
and about creating from a place of balance, about expressing your impressions,
about revealing what life and truth are to you,
share this unique gift you have to give, find out who you are.

we rely on you just the same way as we depend on the sun,
go on, keep finding out what it is that makes you shine,
i am, you are, we are, always, children of the great submlime and eternal sun,
the light of the infinite, and always existent ONE.

“Speaking to the artist in you”, an essay.


Speaking to the artist in you:

The astronaut, the scientist, mathematician, academic,
author and actor have become romantic icons, daring pioneers of our age exploring new horizons,
some of the “chosen few” who are able to travel further, see more, and do more than the “average worker”…

Yet, there is another type of work we can do as humans,
another place except outside of ourselves to explore,
one which it is not so hard, or impossible to become.
A pioneer of consciousness, one who swims through the depths of the mind.
The Artist: a Psychonaut; one who is not afraid of diving into the psyche: “the thing that breathes”.
The world has been mapped and explored, and according to some,
everything that there is to see, has been seen… but not by me.

Look, Look at it!
The whole universe is out there, in all its tremendous beauty and vast glory,
still just waiting to be explored. Stars which are thousands of years of travel away,
even if you are as fast as light. Yes, it is all out there, waiting to be explored, theoretically.

What I want to say is that: It’s also in here!
And in this inner realm, the only thing you are limited by is yourself.
We are so busy, rushing from one place to the next,
paying so much attention to the outer world,
some people don’t even believe the inner one exists,
but I can tell you it does,
because I have been there,
and will keep going,
and keep sharing what I find there.

We all have these projects, but we forget, we are the actual project.
If we feel something is blocking us, we need to remember, there is more than one way.
We have a choice to make in our own lives, which we can only make when we are fully aware of it:
to grow, or to stand still and let the vegetable kingdom swallow us up, in time, her belly:
Either, you choose to grow and advance, or you stand still and regress,
there is no in between, you have to make an effort just to hold your ground, position and keep things going.

A wise man who lived in another age said: “Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains,
at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean,
at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering”*

Now, more of the same goes on: We rush about, trying desperately,
but in vain, to change the world in some way or another, trying to leave our mark on it.
When it is not the world that needs changing.
And what we really want to leave a mark on, or in, is ourselves and one another.
And through art; literature, music, dance, philosophy… We can!
We can change the way we, and others see the world, and in so doing, everything else.

Now, as our ability to communicate through technology has catapulted us into the digital age,
we seem to be stagnating, if not, regressing, culturally: most of the greatest works of literature are hundreds of years old,
yet, we could all be contributing to a second renaissance, our emails are sent at light speed,
but our thoughts and emotions are kept from moving much at all…

What I want to say is: there is a universe waiting for you, inside,
in which you are the landscape, and at the same time, the traveller,
in which you can see whatever you need to see.
It’s all just waiting for you to accept it, and go within.

I used to say whenever I was asked who I wanted to meet, this and that dead person.

But who I really want to meet is you.

And the only reason I can think of why I am not currently,
really meeting you, is contained in this sentence:
“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark
(outer space), The true tragedy of life however,
is when a grown man is afraid of the light (within; in inner space)”.**

When we stay on the outside, on the surface, we remain in the dark, we never get to know ourselves,
we do not meet ourselves, nor others, it is only by diving within that we champion and raise up our inner light
and give birth to our unique loving individual art.
