Seeds of Truth

“the lies we tell ourselves”

it starts out simple

with something we say

to ourselves or each other

a well meaning “phrase or two”

 

“it’s all good”

let’s start with that

if life is “all” good, then

when events happen that crush our hearts

it’s a good thing, right?

for appearances sake

let’s run with that one and cut to the chase

 

“time heals everything”

well … it doesn’t exactly

time waits patiently

to wound us yet one more time

by the sword or by the shield

let’s choose surrender

 

“you learn to live with it”

how does that work?

how does that feel to you?

it seems we have just put it away

for safe keeping or special occasions

time becomes a test then to see what we will do with it

given time … we do our best

and find a way to cherish the order of things

 

“they are in a better place”

maybe they aren’t

who’s to say here or there is better

while one aspect is “they will always be with us”

the benefit of reaching out to a physical being is lost

it’s the depth of our perception that’s changed … that’s all

and where is there anyway?

                                                      

“it was their time”

how does anyone know

it wasn’t a mistake in timing

and that given just a little more time

something else may have occurred with just a little bit more … time

 

“everything happens for a reason”

I have said it myself … But … what is the reason?!

how does anyone … console someone … who is facing loss with that

when their world is crumbling around them may not be the time

perhaps if we look hard enough

the blessing will eventually appear

it was my death tho ~ not yours

so it is my blessing to find

my beauty to live

 

it’s something you get to “experience” and hopefully “learn to live with”

cause you never really do “get over it”

“something or someone else better will come along”

we can talk ourselves into almost anything

maybe we gave in too early … maybe we gave up too late

perhaps something new and different will happen

even for the better or the worse

for now, it doesn’t ease the pain of transition

while life stands still

and the rest of the world keeps moving along

acting as though …

 

“It will all be okay in the end”

 Time appears to be the theme

and we have convinced ourselves

that there is not enough time to do it all

that there is no time for you today

and not enough time to simply be here now

for tomorrow is already full

but … in the end it’s all going to be okay!

when is this end going to get here?

where does time turn into space?

 

These are the lies we tell ourselves and others

wherein lie those “Seeds of Truth”

 

“This too Shall Pass”

this seems to be the only Truth that lasts

since every moment of every day

is passing like the tic tock of a clock

keeping time company with a pendulum swing

always ready for the cycle of change

the changes we are pushed into by the past

or pulled into by the future

reconciled only by the ever present moment

that says to us … we can choose what we are being chiseled in to

by the eroding … elemental forces

alongside the enduring weight of time

 

“there is all the time in the world”

we have lots of time, now … that is

until … we meet a distortion in time

which either extends our life for the day

or trips us on the light and “time slips away”

we wrap our lives around something that passes

as a measurement we can count it

as a cycle we can watch it

but … where is time when

 

where is time

when the moment is so exquisitely

and painfully beautiful at the same time

when there is nothing to hold on to and nowhere to go

except into the heart of the moment

where time passes quietly

from what was

to what is

to what will be

what is time then

when it feels like a drop in the ocean of eternity?

I’ll meet you there in that moment when time stands still

where we become the living witness’

of our dreams
