Holiday Season

Arthur seat m

It is so still and cold…

It’s enchanting, the nature and stillness…

The sea looks like silk and it joins with sky…

Sky and water are one…

Like magical designer just sewed the perfect silk dress,

The ornaments on the silk dress, they move and dance,

All colours and sizes, birds move on the silky dress,

Birds form patterns, marvels drawings on the silky dress…

People celebrate Christmas in their homes, oblivious of creations,

Created by magical designer,

And designer plays, creates regardless if he is noticed by some,

And ignored by others.

Two otters play in the darkness,

Twilight is their friend, they are creatures of the night,

How come the swans are still up?

Two white creatures disturb the darkness,

And otters disturb the swans,

Someone hisses, someone doesn’t pay attention,

Everyone is busy minding their own business…

Creation continues…

What you going do or not do, RIGHT NOW?

moon blue 12 12

Being somewhere else in the past or future…

Being in the boxed reality…

Don’t even notice what surrounds you,

Mind runs gazillion miles an hour…

Your body can’t be that fast, it can’t follow speed of thought…

Are those thoughts are yours?

Where they come from?

Is there thought generating machines?

The thoughts and ideas pull you into many sides,

As if each of them have leash on your neck,

Thoughts that want to own you…

Are you a slave of thoughts?

Many deep breaths in and out…

So you may see through thoughts…

And there is a road leading somewhere,

Where thoughts don’t go…

There are no words there…

Words are sharp, they cut through,

Words are not personal,

You make it personal…

So, what you going to do or not do RIGHT NOW?

Are you influenced by words?

What words?

Clear your mind…

Deep breath in and out…

Till your mind is clear…

Then make decisions…

Internal Spring

internal spring

It’s cold and white outside,

The morning sun is rising,

Sun rays play in the frosty grass and the roof tops,

Miraculous sparkles and the feeling of crispiness,

It’s time of hibernation,

When nature rests,

Internal world blooms,

It’s spring inside…

Don’t get distracted by the fake Christmas lights and shopping malls,

Don’t get distracted…

It’s time of retrospection…

Silence is the best friend…

The darkness is so comforting,

The darkness birth the light,

This feels like spring,

The light shows and the fireworks of the internal worlds,

It’s time for meditation and contemplation…

Don’t get distracted by the drama and fake lights of the outside world…

The outside world gets wavy, as the crazy ocean storm…

The way is inside…

Observe and don’t absorb, don’t be a sponge…

The outside world just like a dream…

You look at the dome of starry sky,

Then look back at the ground and ocean…

Just somewhere over the horizon…

..it’s spring inside and everything is flowering…

Pink storm in da 🌃 city

23352908-825B-49C0-9FEA-B67F9ADFFB7Bpink storm, that is playing in da city,

it seems the beings play with it,and they enjoy the play,

pink petals from the trees,

the petals like some silky snowflakes, they swirl in the wind, they play,

they dance…

two herons dance, in the background of the pink sunset,

if sky is pink,tomorrow you’ll see a storm…is that a pink storm?

two ducks enjoying their date and they are going for a walk,together,

the pink storm might affected them.

the people selling flowers on a corner of the street.

the other people buy them, the pink storm has affected them.

they bought all the roses, pink of course!

the roses are for others to impress…

this is like two swans, on surface of the lake,

puffed up their white feathers,try to impress each other,

they dance swan dance…

two male pheasants, fight each other, just to impress the female…

are they all mad? or what?

NO!

it is just pink storm and it affected them all!

it’s spring, the time of storm,that it is pink…

Completion

white flowers feather

This world of beginnings and endings, there is completion,

When you see the whole picture.

The sense of putting details and pieces together.

Enjoying the process of creation,

The small details take attention for so long,

You get impatient, when it is going too end?

What it is going to be?

How it is going to look?

In Zen there are no beginnings and no ends,

Only continuity and change…

There is plateau and the ocean,

The island in the ocean and there are many islands and continents,

All this is one, everything and nothing…

You climb the mountain top,

When on the top you see,

There are the lakes and valleys and oceans and other mountains,

Maybe you climbed to see what is out there?

To see a bigger picture and the picture gets bigger and bigger,

Until it’s boundless…

…spring in winter season…

spring bloom winter

…when you wake up and Christmas song is in your mind and it drives you crazy,

the Christmas market and the people selling things,

the Christmas lights, the wonderful distraction,

when you know the inner lights much more enchanting…

the lights that change, and people celebrate Christmas the same…

it goes round and round…

the winters weather freezes the body,

Arctic winds, kisses the cheeks,

the frost that decorates morning grass and fallen leaves,

white innocent painter,

it’s cold outside, it’s cold outside,

although ignore the cold,

it feels like spring,

it’s warm inside,

the inner light shines, just like the sun,the inner sun,

the plethora of colours,

it generates the heat,

the flowers bloom even though it’s winter,

it feels like spring and seems the winter is long gone,

what is hot?

what is cold?

just a sensation…

may change the sensation…

the cold becomes the friend and even pleasant,

maybe even a guru…

which reality is more real inner or outer?

which one is a dream?

what is a dream?

if it is experience it is real…physical or not…

maybe it’s not the winter on Lucia day…

the light is back…

and feeling is like kite that is flying high…

and if nobody is holding rope…

where is the limit?

who sets the limit?

you set the limit…

…zen poshness…

crow

…it wears the gown, the black gown,

he wears the black feathery tuxedo,

she wears feathery little black dress,

are they the best oculists?

they are the invisible ones…

they dine in luxurious gazillion star restaurant,

the food is soo organic and it’s fresh,

the berries just picked from the trees…

the beings who see others and avoid the others,

they all look the same although they are different,

they seem so ordinary…

although their life is extraordinary…

what is their name?

da crow it’s majesty da crow…

da crispiness and zenness of da crows life…

less words it’s better, just leave the experience crisp…

AMAZING WONDERFULNESS

papugos

In this endless existence,

In the world you live in,

The planet Earth,

The reality soup that surrounds you…

How do you choose your a guiding star?

The something that leads you

Gives meaning to your life…

Keeps you going

The No give up Factor…

The reality soup that tries to bring you down,

And throw you into dumpster…

There are the guiding stars that bring you up, they guide you…

There are many…

Do you see them?

Do you want to see them?

You are one of them,

You bring yourself up and you go…

Get moving…

Movement is generating energy…

Keep moving…

You don’t have a power you are the POWER…

Choose wisely what you focus on and to who you give your attention…

Telescopes, microscopes, fractals…use your focus lens wisely…

Uniqueness of da moment

uniquiness of the moment

…it seems, it was the spring just now…

the trees were blooming in array of colours,

then the summer came about, the colours changed,

the blooming spring dropped it’s crown,

falling petals seemed like falling snow,

then the summer wore it’s crown of other colours,

the autumn just consumed the summer colours,

it painted picture of it’s own…

some leaves are yellow like the start of blooming spring

although they are the messengers of ending not beginning…

white winters gown deletes the autumn picture,

the nature rests before the next creation…

the winter…the summer, and the winter…the summer…

the circle goes round and round…

it seems the same although it is unique…

the moments are unique…

after the seasons change you will be back home,

this life will seem like faded dream,

you’ll watch this life like photo album…

you will remember the uniquest moments…

create the perfect moment next…

who is going do it better than you do?

…sure you know you best, than others do…

Da colours of life & what do you worship Darling?

colours of life flowers

The clouds have gathered, the rain will fall…

At least the birds are waiting, so they may play and splash

In waters of the rain, so much joy that brings.

The freshness and aliveness that the rain brings…

The thunder storm and lightening will clear the air…

The sky is taking photographs and recording perfect moments.

The day of the eclipse, many will remember…

The lightening that cleared the air…

The things became more light, light feather…

The weight was dropped….

The summer and it’s colours,makes the head spin…

This summer is the time of butterflies, bumble bees and lady bugs

The summer heat was kind to to them…

So, many creatures in the park and each enjoys the life in it’s own way,

The bees and butterflies are focused on the flowers,

The dogs are chasing ball,

The flowers draw up to the sun…

What do the humans chase, oh i see a lot of them concerned how to get high?

They chase the highs…

The girls with ton of makeup seeks a perfect mate to mate…

Someone smokes the substance or consumes alcohol…

They seek these childish pleasures to escape…

They indulge in colours of the grey…

That’s  a bit dull don’t you agree?

The spectrum of the life is more colourful than that!

It’s better to be magician of the life and pull the unexpected out of the magic hat,

Explore the colours like a painter does,

Combine the colours and make new ones!

So, what are you focusing on?

You become that which you focus on,

So, focus on highest enlightenment and the light then,

You will be able to explore the colours and the colourless!

So, leave the grey bye bye the grey you are too boring!

Enjoy the colours and the clarity of life!
