Inspiration from the depths

Folder: 
Skipping Stones

Mother Theresa, the Pope,

Buddha, Shaolin monks;

all sincerely, devoutly,

believing people;

people who inspire 

with the strength 

of their convictions,

the force they place 

into their beliefs,

the impact it has on their lives,

and the world around them;

and I am inspired by

the knowledge that 

even they had to smell

their own pungent shit.

I have read this quite a few

I have read this quite a few times now,

an yet, still, the depths of understandings steal my words.

In part the grace of purity they exhume and possess,

In part the paths they tread, paved in blindfolded faith.

Pungent Shit.

Their conundrum.

Which is better,

Blind faith

or

infinite questions?

Your wisdom is well expresssed good sir.

Thank you, kind Sir! I would LOVE to be able to get a gliimpse of the universe from an Astral POV!  I'm always in awe of your perspective and how you share that vision with us. Simply stunning and often leaves me speechless!

The animal instinct in us

The animal instinct in us all. Like how little boys in the 5-12 year old bracket think the smell of their farts is so cool and macho. I liked this. Have to tell you though, I'm a nurse, and throughout my life have "seen a lot of shit", but I did once care for a couple astute families who have relatives whose shit did not stink...and it was both unusual and at the same time gave us all an awareness of that saying... so I wonder.. lmao.

....I wish we didn't dislike so much...those things ...those human frailty things. They have purpose.


...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

I love you thrice! Once for your soul & it's light, once for your profession and all we share, and once for the glow that is uniquely yours! ;-) "those human frailty things" are the links that tie us all, noble & ignoble, fallen and saintly, with the same origin & fate.
