The greatest Love Affair is that with Life Itself
god bless the final straw
“Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as Life lasts.” – Rachel Carson
"Love is a stranger / in an open car / to tempt you in / and drive you far away
Love is a danger / of a different kind / to take you away / and leave you far behind"
"I tied myself with wire... to let the horses run free
Playing with the fire... until the fire played with me
We set ourselves on fire... oh God, do not deny her
It's not if I believe in love, but if love believes in me
At the moment of surrender... I folded to my knees"
...the sound was *WAY* better in the car...
good comedians are righteous priests
feel the day
This center, this core, this presence
Is always available to you. It is love.
Although it supports you it does not ask something of you.
I have chosen to close the circle
And love back what is loving me
And love back what is breathing me.
This love, the center, this core, this presence
Will not compete with the flashing & passing stimulation of the outer world
In its many various & sometimes enchanting forms;
It is not here to try to win you
It is not here to play games
It is as close as your heart
And as strong as the wind of the earth.
It may go unrecognized for ages
There are so many fantasies of outer fulfillment to pursue
And yet, at some point,
You'll turn to this…
Either because you at last crave it,
Or you have finally seen the world for what it is:
Something that is always dying…
While this center, this core, this love, this presence
That asks nothing of you
Is the phenomenal reality of unbreakable true love that always remains.
~ de Vie
there is a silent & irreversible ecstasy in the center of my chest
where the wild things flow in and out
where the unexpected happens without bidding
where the thunder of nature is not separate from the being
where the present has become what it is: an endlessly unfolding gift
where reason yields its limited stance to the dance of abandon
where freedom is revealed through unnameable devotion
where the caves of the heart fill with strange water and then dry
where this has no purpose and no coming or going
where the ecstasy is ruthless in its expanse…
caring nothing for conditions
where the earth and cosmos do not cease in their mysterious unfolding
where love cannot - can never - be contained by such a small misused word
where these words too are nothing but specks of sand on the shore of infinity
where the center of the wheel knows it contains the entire universe
and if i sing for you again
it is only because i cannot bear not singing
like water that must overreach its banks
like flowers that must bloom beyond their buds
like silence that must utter its own name
like light that cannot resist rising
until it fills up the whole sky
whatever that sky may be
because all of creation moves even in us, as us
in the nameless & unsaid lake of being
that moves with deepest wonder into the embrace of the unknown
because the old world had to die
and it did
and we from the ashes did rise
with the taste of life’s morning dew on our lips
unbidden but without remorse

if you are able to be fully with your own self & all therein, there will be nothing & no one left for you to fear...

this earth fucking beautiful.
~ de Vie singing with Rihanna “Stay"
Death is inevitable. It is written into the very fabric of Life. There is no escaping it. It is in every moment, even... with every exhale. Every exhale, even, is a form of dying... releasing. Something ending. To begin again, yes, but nonetheless, in this moment, ending. To avoid the fact of death is a prison... to accept it is to open one's eyes to the fabric of this reality, this living/dying, inhaling/exhaling, holding & releasing... receiving, & then giving. Everything comes & goes... except the eternal... and the eternal is the Consciousness that sees it all. I see something arise & fall... it may arise again or it may not... or in a different form or it may not... it is not known. There are so many arisings & fallings... so many spontaneous, or intentional, creations in this life. I have loved that arising... and I watch it falling... and still the unspeakable love is, for that eternal Consciousness is also the purest love.

Freedom is the goal / Freedom is the gold
"Life is so rich, has so many treasures, we go to it with empty hearts; we do not know how to fill our hearts with the abundance of Life. We are poor inwardly and when the riches are offered to us, we refuse. Love is a dangerous thing: it brings the only revolution that gives complete happiness. So few of us are capable of love, so few want love: we love on our own terms, making of love a marketable thing. We have the market mentality and love is not marketable, a give-and-take affair. It is a state of being in which all man's problems are resolved." - Krishnamurti
"The only silly question is the one you don't ask."
I love the juice of Inspiration
I love questions. What are your questions?
"This journey I am proposing that we take together is not to the moon or even to the stars. The distance to the stars is much less than the distance within ourselves. The discovery of ourselves is endless, and it requires constant inquiry, a perception which is total, an awareness in which there is no choice. This journey is really an opening of the door to the individual in his relationship with the world." - Krishnamurti
