The spiritual quest to explore,
the theory of mind and its score.
Parallels of circumstance,
testing the intellect to advance.
Narratives on individual psychology,
complexity of thought throughout history.
Considerations beyond the bound of tale,
the struggle to survive as soul cannot fail.
Emotional depth of sea that inspire,
trusting matters of the experiences dire.
Epic psychology and its dilemma,
Cyclopes and Hydras forever.
The story of love that waits,
mutual recognition and opening,
the golden gates.

I pray for all of us…

with a secure future,
a dense darkness

and left me

Forced me to write a letter
to the creator of all
with an obvious shame-
where was this thought
when I had it all?
A very long letter
with countless words,
an exaggeration of misery
was posted to heaven,
expecting a reply
with patience and surprise.
I received a reply.
A note from God
with only two magical words.
And I looked up at the sky
and held my head high.

“Waking up this morning,
Twenty-four brand new hours are before me.
to live fully
in each moment
and to look at all beings
with eyes of compassion.”
-Thich Nhat Hanh
May we treasure each new day, and may your day be beautiful. 💜
