Unknowing

It is within the Canvas I lost my thoughts.

No mind, not knowing.

What was true, no longer so.

I wonder as I wander,

Ponder as I blunder.

It is within the Canvas I lost my thoughts.

From I to We once again.

Wondering and wandering,

Pondering carefully blundering.

From knowing this or that,

Dissolved into nothing…not knowing.

Through our journey of knowing to unknowing we come to know the I as we, we are thee.~Ani Po

The Dreamer

The dreamer shall fuse night with day and day with night.~Ani Po

It has been brought to my attention that it is not necessary to know when or where we shall dream, as long as we shall dream. My response was just this, as my days are no longer of light and my nights are no longer of dark…they are left for an imagination of things to exist.

Confused as to which reality is true,seeing only one as truth. It is thought, our own ‘knowing’ of things, our reality becomes true. Connected with taught belief or connected with a deeper knowing of things? That is for the pilgrim’s journey to find. From Pilgrim to Hero in a single thought. From out to in, from I to We…

 

 

Alone

Sitting all alone,

With nobody to call me dear.

Sadness, emptiness,

With nobody to hold me dear.

There is a breath that comes from afar.

Like wind carrying thoughts of love to inner dimensions.

Sitting alone,

Something shifts my attention.

A lonely bird,

Pecking at the bark.

I wonder if she has these thoughts,

Probably not.

Then there is a voice,

As the bird speaks.

I am not alone, 

For you are sitting with me. Just as I, you are too. That squirrel, coming to feed from the bird feeder…we shall ask him.

Mr. Squirrel, are you alone?

Of course not! For there are those who leave seed and nuts, we call them human. Then there are the crows and bunnies, whom wrestle to the offering rock in hopes of a fresh morsel. Occasionally the human sits with us, but not as often as we would like.

I wonder why this is true,

Humans not surrounding with nature but concrete walls?

Pondering the words of my new friends,

Sitting alone but not really alone.

My attention focused on the birds, squirrels, crows and bunnies,

The trees, bushes, wind, clouds, morning sun, evening moon.

One sentient, two, then another,

Maybe you.

Expanding thoughts of self to a greater whole,

I am no longer alone…Ani Po

 

Undoing the Doings

Stepping into the past and stepping into the future, whilst we ebb and flow. Into the past we go witnessing doings that which are done. Forgiving us.
We step into future with the hopes of feeling lighter, much brighter and more life in our steps.

Stepping into the Canvas while Undoing the Doings within our Canvas of life. With a stroke of pen, we are re-writing our reality. What is the next chapter? What is the next picture within the frame? Grab a pen or a brush…make it so…Ani Po

 

 

The Tomorrow of Our Days

Our dreams do no exist in the tomorrow of our days.~Ani Po

We could look to the tomorrows of our days, in hopes that our dreams will come to fruition or we could align ourselves today with a knowing that our dreams will come true. Without action of today the dreams of tomorrow may never happen.

Through careful contemplation we can solve any dilemma of our days. Simply looking at it with hopes of tomorrow being a better day…it may never happen or become a faded memory.

Keep the dream alive, make arrangements today…clearing pathways for our dreams to manifest. Contemplate today not for what might be, but how it will be so.

Stepping into the Canvas with deeper contemplation of our day. In our steps of the day we are aligning with our truest self of tomorrow. Keep stepping, keep seeking and it will be found.

in the tomorrow of our days

 

 

Things Are Not What they Seem

All that is gold does not glitter; not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither; deep roots are not reached by the frost.~J.R.Tolkien

Too often we judge a book by its cover, failing to read the contents. Lazily looking out into the world, forgetting there is still much more to learn. Too busy or conditioned response? It is not too late to see anew.

Stepping into the Canvas with deeper perspective for things are not what they seem. Just for today I will look deeper within the beauty of they day, allowing deeper mysteries to surface. That which was unseen shall be made seen.

Joy in my Heart

What for this happiness,

For Joy not present.

Day to day,

Forgotten truth.

Crashing all around,

Sinners and suffering.

Choosing to listen,

Or choosing to focus yet again.

Laser sighted,

Target in view.

Stay present in joy,

Happiness will follow.

No matter crashings of the day,

We still have Joy in our Heart.

Ani Po
