Cycling With Wind Contemporary SeekerI had the opportunity to take my road bike for a spin recently.

Moving Zen

I love, LOVE, those moments because my mind goes to a different place.

I liken it to a moving Zen of sorts.

Along my travels I marveled at the simplicity and complexity of it all.

It’s often like that — life that is.

Simple, yet so complex.

Because if it were just simplicity in every moment, I’m not sure we’d strive for more.

The Wind at My Back

While riding, I thought how life is a lot like cycling out on the open road.

When riding against the wind, my ride seems endless.

When traveling with its mighty force, the wind supports my efforts, and I’m rewarded in-kind.

Whether I ride with the wind, or against its abounding strength — everyday, I have this choice.

Yet, as I strive daily to cycle with the wind, I inherently choose peace.

The Passive-Aggresive Soul – A Tale Unto Itself

By way of a comment on one of my poems a reader said, “You should try, if you haven’t already, to write a poem from the perspective of the seemingly dishonest man, as a means of reflecting his conflict. As he does hurtful things towards his own gain. Whilst noting in his heart that what he’s […]

To Be Healed and Share – Beyond Raw Pain

I offer some “writes” that were to raw to share when written. Yet, I vowed to share my journey for truth and higher knowledge through triumps and pitfalls and pain to peace; even the good, bad and the ugly. I recognize, though, as a writer I write because I have to. So when the heart is bleeding, it’s […]

Matters of the Heart – Unlearning to Learn

I say I’m ‘okay’ with letting go, moving on, or going beyond. But in reality, I’m not always. But who is? It often feels yucky inside.  Matters of the Heart Case in point? I think one of the most disheartening elements is finding love and not being able to make it last. To his fault, mine or […]

Finding Life — A Seeker’s Tale

I used to believe life would come find me. It was one of those things I just trusted. Not sure why, but I did. All the while tediously achieving what society deemed necessary for “success.” What humanity considered “life.” But it was missing. So I was still waiting. Waiting for life to begin. Yet, now I know. By gosh, […]

Guns vs. People — A Better World

It’s devastating to see. I am just as taken aback as the next with the state of our world. Yet, I can’t help but to view America’s debate about gun control as another distraction. To divert mankind from doing the next right thing. I beg to ask, is this violence new? The Dawn of Time Since […]

Loving Yourself Enough to Leave

“Oxymoron-ish,” I know. To feel chaos often I must remove myself. From what I deemed “love.” Then I stoically see a belligerent soul employing subtleties, unable to formulate any semblance of order in life, his world. But, oh, I know I warrant surviving. Free of guilt. To saunter among winds on high. So it’s in my […]

Soul Searching — Remembering City Life

  It was safe. I felt safe. So I ache for those days; the cold city streets. Feeling alive, but dead inside. The oxymoron of it all. A place to be lonely, but never alone. With crowds about. So it was safe; safe to wander the congested, noisy and hard plateaus. Where grass were small […]

“Tests” in Life — Who is the Creator?

A common phrase we hear is, “God is teaching me a lesson. I’m being tested.” I find it interesting how many attribute elements that happen as tests from God. I used to subscribe to this notion hook, line and sinker. I’d find myself thinking, “This is happening because I haven’t learned my lesson. God will continue to test me […]

Gut Instinct vs. Fear – Seeing What’s Before You

It’s really difficult to ascertain the difference between your gut instinct and fear. Both are real and resilient “feelings.” Differences or the Unknown vs. Intuition Sometimes we’re faced with situations that can be utterly daunting due to differences and ‘the unknown.’ If something or someone is unlike what we’re used to, we naturally question, or become […]

Brussels Bombings — Again I Remember

The bombings in Brussels this morning, March 22, 2016, hit me like a ton of bricks. Empathic “Me?” I’m not so sure I believe in “empaths” in the esoteric sense. That is someone who literally feels and “takes on,” the pain and suffering of others. Yet, I do subscribe to it in theory. There are […]
