Solitude, Unspoken and All That Is

Solitude is not something 
one hopes to have in the future. 
Rather, it is a deepening of what is in the present. 
If you do not look for it in the present 
you will never have it 

The Unspoken 
Mind speaks to mind 
with spoken or written words. 
When heart speaks to heart 
it is with words unspoken and unwritten.

Imagination helps one see 
further than the eyes see 
and hear sounds 
fainter than ears can detect.

The mystical task 
a person must set for himself 
is not to feel secure, 
but to be able to tolerate insecurity. 

As aging continues, 
insecurity makes a greater contribution 
to the process than it did before.
One may fail as an original thinker 
simply because his memory is too good. 
The remedy may then be to bypass memory 
and require that the unconscious feed the muse. 

This may require that 
one perceives unity in the roaring of the winds 
and the quiet song of of a tranquil pool.
How will you keep the fires in the hearth 
burning with the flames of creativity? 
By seeking through spirit effort 
for kindling to ignite.

On character … 
without knowledge of 
or the ability to forge 
laws of right conduct 
you will not forge your character.


All That Is 
is a result of universal creativity. 
There is nothing dead in Nature.
Without intuition 
you will forever feel disconnected 
… or alone.
