Portals… Dimensional realities? A poem


IMG_20140722_200358_206I loved this picture as I looked at it on my phone… It invoked my imagination and creative side. One of the subjects I have been studying over the last few years has been Quantum Physics and the concept of Quantum jumping. The refractions of light and the flower affect created in the picture along with the small sun reflected “Orb” inspired the poem and the concept of the portal… Hope it brings a smile to some of you! :)

Quantum jumping into my dreams
Although paradoxical it may seem
-
In another dimension I find myself
I ask of me for a little help
-
What advice would you give to me
As you live in the place I would like to be
-
Smiling as I enjoy the view
I tell myself what I would do
-
You just have to believe
Trust in the process and you will see
-
Follow your heart and grab your dreams
Things are not always as they seem
-
Quantum leaps crazy as they sound
Sometimes that is where our reality is found
-
I choose to take a leap of faith
Following my dreams through time and space
-
Enjoying the moment each one a gift
Cherishing the joy with each one I live
-
Quantum jumping into my dreams
Not as paradoxical as it may seem
-
In another dimension in the here and now
Looking at myself I nod and bow
-
Thank you for sharing your advice
Believing in myself is not such a steep price
-
Trust in the process and enjoy the ride
Laughing and smiling on the quantum slide
-
Namaste I say as I turn to leave
Namaste I say as I look at me
-
Quantum jump I take paradoxically
Back into my now reality
-
Things are not always what they seem
Keep believing trusting and following your dreams

 

Thank you for being you! Thank you as well for sharing your time with me here I am most grateful you chose to do so with love a simple man named Joe! :)

Thank you all for being the positive change our world so needs while you share your love and your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with!

Namaste

Help Wanted: Agent wanted to represent Highly tallented people 50 million$ and up


Help Wanted: Agent to represent highly talented and Beautiful people
Salary 50 million US dollars plus Bonus and future international opportunities, if you are successful and obtain a contract for our clients.
A bit about or clients and the contract♦
In light of the failed minimum wage due to lack of a realistic goal and no room for negotiation by poorly motivated and talentless even careless representatives. Our clients seek an agent to sit down at the table and negotiate a living wage with the Government of “We the People” in our Nations Capitol.

-
The idea of a minimum wage seems preposterous in this day and age. It is the sentiment of many that by seeking a low ball minimum for our clients, some 150 million or so of them working for sub standard wages with no benefits the recent contract was destined to fail from the initial proposal. There was never any room for negotiation or bargaining in the original proposal nor was the wage going to actually raise the standard of living for any of our many talented hard working clients. The half hearted initiative was doomed for failure from the beginning, any agent representing his or her client knows that you come in at the high end and negotiate for the best deal you can get for your client. It is irresponsible to start at the bottom when you are representing your client as well as yourself as their representative. Unless of course you are working for the other party or in collusion with them to keep the people that hired you at the bottom.

-
Our clients are asking for a realistic and what should be a fair contract of a living wage… 25.00 an hour with benefits would be a great place to start as far as an initial offer. It would be from that position or starting point that a satisfactory living wage could be negotiated and allow our clients to have a bit of dignity and decent quality of life.

-

The Unions used to increase the wages and quality of life for many of our clients parents and families yet they have been for the most part destroyed from within and without as those in charge of the Unions became corrupt and those in  our Government have been rewarded by Corporations and Big Business with lucrative gifts, money and the Lobbyists that they rub elbows with on a daily basis. As there is no real voice of our clients in the Congress or Senate seeking to negotiate or win a contract for a living wage we would like to hire an Agent of the Highest caliber to negotiate a contract with the Congress and Senate for a living wage. We are of course willing to be realistic; however our clients are worth more than the minimum! As they are very talented hard working and beautiful people with families to support and it would be nice if they could spend time with them and not have to work two or three jobs or need food stamps to put food on the table or a roof over the heads of their families or themselves.

-
Future opportunities in other Nations are a definite possibility if you are successful in obtaining a contract here in the U.S.

-
You will be paid upon a signed contract within ninety days. Our clients will each pay one dollar to the fund upon receipt of the contract and payment of said wage by their respective employers. Via a fund set up in your name.
Interested applicants should contact this blog and set up an interview.

-

Thank you in advance.. If you have negotiated contracts for big name stars and athletes for millions this should be a piece of cake job worth far more than the percentage you got for those contracts… Could even go into the hundred million range as I am sure that many of our clients would gladly contribute at least 5 dollars to the fund for a signed contract!

Let them Eat “CAKE”… a poetic thought


What do you do when there is nothing left to lose?
When all hope is lost what path will you choose?
-
Some will choose to rise above with dignity and grace
Others will choose a path that they wouldn’t in another time and place
-
When the people in power turn their backs and walk away
To those with nothing what can you really say?
-
It will be many years before they have their day
To those who have nothing to lose what can you really say?
-
Its like in a movie called “Star Wars” the” Empire Strikes Back”
The Senate has voted and given the citizens a whack
-
Or perhaps a scene from a time long ago
One where a Queen said a saying we all know
-
‘Let them eat CAKE’ was her famous last line that comes to mind
Somewhat like what the Senators said to the countrymen of mine
-
As the Senators live on a salary we pay
They voted to keep the poor in a place of dismay
-
Minimum wage is an act of hate against the citizens
Not to raise it while you take our money is a sin
-
A living wage is needed to make our nation strong
Yet the greedy business owners say that would be wrong
-
Like Reaganomics watering the top of the tree
The water never trickles to the roots where it needs to be
-
The Senators and businesses with their greedy needs
Are destroying our country the land of the free
-
Veterans returning face the ultimate injury
No jobs or living wages to a life of poverty
-
What I ask do they expect for all of us to do
When backed into a corner with nothing left to lose?
-
Minimum wage is a disgrace as our Senators and Congress are too
I SAY WE VOTE THEM ALL OUT THAT IS THE HONORABLE THING TO DO
-
I say we act with grace and tell them to eat cake
We have taken all we can take!
-
Spend a few trillion dollars on a jet or two
A billion on a battle tank to take care of me and you
What we really need is a living wage so we can buy some food
-
Yet you say we are not worth a minimum of ten dollars an hour
I say you are not worthy of your governing power
-
I would like to see you rule with dignity
SO WATER THE ROOTS OF THE COUNTRY
DEMAND A LIVING WAGE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE
-
VOTE THEM ALL OUT AS THEY DON’T REPRESENT YOU OR ME!
DEMAND THAT WE ARE ALL EQUAL AND DESERVE TO BE TREATED WITH DIGNITY!
-
We have nothing left to lose
I say we fire the politicians and from the people we should choose!

-

Thank you and I apologize for venting this way here on this page yet I must express my thoughts in a way that I feel is positive. The actions and words of our government are not in the best interest of “We the People” as far as many things go. The system is broken and it is not politicians that are going to fix it they are destroying it!

-

I thank you for your time and being you as well as being the positive change our world so needs. :)

Namaste!

PS I will get to the comments you have been sharing and your posts soon.. I have been doing much research for some upcoming projects and chopping wood.. Working at my trade as I prepare for the transition to my new life.. I need to put food on the table and buy a few suits :)

No words to say… a poetic thought


IMG_20140629_135251_386

Today was one of those days
So beautiful silent and nothing to say
Nature filled me with awe and took all the words away
-
The Mountain top lake so blue
The trees and flowers covered in the morning dew
Love of the divine shared with me and you
-
Just wanted to say hi and share a smile on such a perfect day that words could not do justice to.

Thank you all for being you! 

Has Christianity helped mankind to become better human beings? Would Jesus be a Christian?


I have been seeing quite a few posts shared both on blogs and social media sites that have inspired me to ask what my thoughts and feelings are as far as some of the major issues with religions. I saw the same post three times in the last two days and was recently answering questions on an online dating site that really made me stop and think. Much like a conversation with Plato would have caused the same introspection and observation of thought to come up with my own view and perspective.
-
Jesus… Wasn’t a Christian
Mohammed …. Wasn’t a Muslim
Buddha … Wasn’t a Buddhist
-
The question asked on the dating site; “Over all do you think Christianity has helped make mankind become better human beings?”
-
The question provoked some interesting thoughts and observations and in a way the post about the inspirational beings that the largest religious movements and religions kind of put the exclamation point on the end of the train of thoughts. Many may disagree and I am not by any means trying to bash, or dispute any ones beliefs or the right to believe as one chooses. I would rather applaud you all for your conviction and faith in your chosen religions and faiths. I am quite spiritual and have a love for all humanity, religions, faiths, philosophies, creeds and I would add races yet have to say there is only one human race. We collectively are the entire human race! Colors of skin? Yes there are different colors of skin, as there are many diverse cultures and many different perspectives on our planet.
-
As I searched my thoughts and feelings over the last few days I have made several observations that I would share. I am not proclaiming them as truth or not truth yet as I sift through the various perspectives and stories throughout history since the beginning of “Christianity” I have to wonder on a whole has Christianity made a positive impact on mankind. The same may be asked of the Muslim faith and the impact it has had and is having on mankind.
-
Jesus Christ was not a Christian as Christianity did not exist while he was alive, nor did he tote a Bible and preach from it. The Bible as we know it didn’t exist yet the books of the Old Testament did, to my knowledge however he didn’t tote those around and preach from them either. He walked his walk and talked his talk by setting an example for mankind to follow. He turned the other cheek fed the hungry taught men to fish healed the sick and shared his love. He asked us human beings to look inside who we are and treat others with respect love and dignity as we all would like to be treated. He asked that we walk in peace and not to throw stones or to judge others. He never as far as I know told his apostles to go out and through power and might convert and control their fellow man and make them become “Christians”. His way was one of freedom of choice and asking us to look within and be loving beautiful human beings to help one another and forgive if one was wronged by another to share with each other the goodness of life and what the world we stand on has to offer.
-
I ponder the question of Christianity and has it helped mankind become better human beings? As I look at the history of this religion and the walk it has walked. The cultures it has destroyed the masses that have been killed in the name of “Christ” and there have been many. The Europeans that were tortured and controlled forced to submit to the “will of God”, the Pagans, the Wiccans, the many other cultures and societies that either became Christian or were cleansed by torture or fire. The Indian tribes of South America and North America the “Heathens” that were either exterminated or forced to become civilized “God Fearing Christians” the French and Spanish Inquisitions, the Holy Wars. Even in today’s society the examples I see of extravagant Cathedrals and Temples, churches and those elevating themselves to “Saint” status as they walk pass the starving, the homeless and the ill.
-
If Jesus was about free will and caring for all humanity and all of creation, acceptance, tolerance, compassion and empathy for others as well as one hundred percent non violent would he even be a Christian? How would he feel about the honor of this tribute to him the religions of Christianity? I am not going to say that there have not been many, many human beings throughout the history of Christianity that have in fact led by example and walked the walk. I am saying however that when I look at the big picture of human beings that call themselves Christians it would appear that they worship a book turn a blind eye and exert control over others by the might of their religious masses and have not apparently gotten the message that Jesus delivered.
-
I am not sure I have the answer to the question yet it has brought me to another question… Would Jesus be a Christian?

Thank you for allowing me to share a few thoughts and perhaps inspire you to share a few thoughts as I would truly like to have a better answer than I have come to. I am leaning towards a mixed response with no clear cut answer even in my own truth. I suppose that is what acceptance is I accept that it is what it is with all of my love unconditional. There has been much good from the religions of Christianity and much that I would consider not so good. I do know that every man woman and child tortured and killed to establish and create this thing we know as Christianity would bring many tears to the eyes of the one they say is the inspiration behind it. What do you think?
-
Thank you for being you and sharing your love and smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with.

Namaste;)

When I left the cave… A poem


keshcorran-caves

 

<a href=”http://www.public-domain-image.com/full-image/nature-landscapes-public-domain-images-pictures/caves-public-domain-images-pictures/keshcorran-caves.jpg-royalty-free-stock-photograph.html&#8221; title=”Keshcorran caves”>Keshcorran caves</a> by Jon Sullivan

When I stepped out of the cave
Fear no longer did I have of the grave
Loving and living was all I did crave
-
Out of the darkness light I did see
Truly knowing and being free
The divine love emanating from the heart of me
-
Thoughts chosen with love and care
Seeing the beauty of all things everywhere
God’s creations for all to share
-
Every flower every tree
Created with love for you and me
Our souls infinite loved unconditionally
-
When out of the cave I saw the stream
I stood in awe at what I had seen
Life in abundance shared with everything
-
The stream it flowed through sands and time
Carrying love and the light divine
Beyond my imagination beyond my simple mind
-
Every thought chosen with care
Not embracing the feeling in the cave of despair
Breathing in love with every breath of air
-
The cave of darkness where I used to stand
Ignorant just being a simple man
Now knowing that is what I am
-
I am nothing yet there is a part of me
A part that is one of divinity
The particle of my maker his gift you see
-
I am what I was created to be
An extension of God as God created me
To expand in love and beauty for eternity
-
Contrast in the painting of expression so diverse
Dwelling in the darkness of the cave first
Another brush stroke among the many
On the canvas we call our universe
-
When we leave the cave and walk hand in hand
Singing from our hearts the song of man
We will be in line with Gods plan
-
Waltzing through the heavens we human beings
On a beam of light as the Angels sing
God will be smiling when we walk out of the cave
And share our love unconditional for everything
Especially for each other us human beings

-

Thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two… Thank you as well for being you and being the positive change our world so needs~! :0

Reinvention of me or aligning with my inner being?


Today I was paid an incredible compliment by a respected friend that caused me to not only smile and say thank you it caused me to ask myself a few questions. Re invention or alignment was the first question I had to ask after the initial smile. The second question was what did I really feel about the compliment and why?
-
After participating in the Veterans Writing group I co mentor the facilitator and sponsor at the V.A. Hospital, Mike Scott surprised me with a few thoughts he shared. He looked at me and said thank you for participating and being a part of the writing group as both a writer and a mentor. Then he expressed his admiration for my ability and the amazing way I have re invented myself. From carpenter to intellectual, and future life coach, NLP practitioner and public speaker as well as aspiring to spiritual mastery and being an inspirational being.
-
In the three years since Mike read one of my poems and asked me to be in his writing group he mentioned how much he has seen me grow and change. He was quite impressed with my progress and quite inspired and moved by my adaptability and my transformation especially in my spiritual presence. He asked if I would be interested in a position or would consider being a volunteer in the peer to peer counseling group. The compliments and the offers made me feel good! I know I am on the path I am supposed to be on and where I am supposed to be at this moment in my journey. Good things are happening and better things are yet to come as I assist and give service to my fellow human beings with love from my heart.
-
Did I re invent myself? I have had several comments on some of my blog posts that expressed the same sentiment. I have to say that I don’t know that that is the case; I am more inclined to say I have become more in line with who I am. The person I am and was meant to be as I came here in this physical form. Since my youth I have had the desire to express myself in an artistic way through poetry and visual art as well as verbally although in my younger years in a very direct and blunt way.

-

I have always had the desire to be me yet the influences of the world had the effect that peer pressure has on an individual and through fear limited my true expression of self both intellectually and spiritually. How many 9 year olds read Emerson or Thoreau… How many boys enjoyed or had even heard of Emily Dickinson let alone understood the depth of her soul in her expression of thoughts poetically? (She was a loner and rarely left her room) I was the one that walked to the beat of a different drum and rather than be the odd ball I conformed to society and family pressures.
-
As my former life crumbled and I spent more time in solitude I began to align with and find my inner being. To know and embrace my inner truth, the years of being a craftsman are a cherished gift yet as a young man my dreams were of a higher calling. I was a gifted and intelligent child with no means, from a family of little wealth and a formal education was beyond reach.

-

I have found that over the years my inner self has been calling me to align and be who I am rather than continue living in fear and succumbing to the expectations of others. Family was one of those that I was trying to live up the expectations of has seen the same change as my friend Mike and now supports and embraces the change and transformation I am going through. They know that the trying times I have been through over the last seven years, has been a good thing even though from the outside perspective seems to have been otherwise. My 100,000 $ + a year job gone and left behind for an uncertain future, my countless hours of study and research as well as the many hours, days , months and years of solitude to find and know “who and what I am”. Have been harder for them at times than it has been for me, yet I am lining up with who I am and what I came to do.
-
I am here to be a part of and add depth to the evolution of Consciousness and the greater mass conscious awareness of humanity. To help others align with their inner being and inspire them to become consciously aware of who they are and to express their individual and diverse perspectives and add to that mass consciousness.

-

I admire and embrace the concept that we in our own time have an obligation to contribute to the evolution of humanity in a positive and meaningful way. It is in our reach to become a better human race than we were yesterday and even more so than we were 2000+ years ago in the time of Jesus of Nazareth, and even more so than 3000 years ago in the time of the Greek philosophers and 5000 years ago in the time of Buddha or the times of the beginnings of the Hindu societies and the Great Ganesh. We have all the history and wisdom of the ancients to draw upon and create a better humanity and paint a picture of such beauty and grace that the ancients would be proud of what we create with the loving wisdom they left us to work with.
-
The first steps to doing so are to become consciously aware of who we are and align with our inner beings or higher selves and make those changes. It doesn’t require anything more than the desire and love of ourselves to do so and the willingness and effort to do so. For me it has taken seven years to unlearn what a lifetime taught me about living for the expectations of others and being afraid to be me.
-
I wanted to express my thoughts at the request of a friend that asked me to write a post from my heart that was inspiring and would help her find her “backbone” I would like to say we all have the capacity to change that process starts within, while you are there first find who you really are and want to be then know you can do it and do it even if the rest of the world seems to not understand at some point they will step back and say… I am in awe and admire you for re inventing yourself.. You can smile and say no I just lined up with who I am and who I was meant to be.. I am finally becoming me! 

Thank you for being you and being the change positive our world so needs by sharing your love and your smiles making our world a better place for all we share it with

Namaste

Happy Fathers Day … A poem for my son


On this day of fathers a very special one
Happy Fathers day to my son
When you were born many years ago
I knew one day you also would be one
Happy Fathers day to my son
-
I did the best I could as I raised you to be you
I tried the best I could sometimes I felt blue
There were times I cried not knowing what to do
Now that you are grown I know one thing is true
-
I hope that you have learned from the things I did wrong
To ask how to be a better father is a sign of the strong
Something I learned when you were almost grown
I wish I had known all along
-
My Father I never knew at all it seems
I wanted to be the father of your dreams
I never wanted to hurt you with my angry screams
Wanted to take you fishing and teach you many things
-
You are a father now and your children need you
Please learn from my example of what you may do
Learn to ask and learn to be the best father you can be
Love you Son I am proud of you
I know you will be a better father than me
-
I Love you Son I am proud of you
Happy Fathers day from me!
Do your best and be the best father you can be
I love you Son I am proud of you
Happy Fathers day from me!

Thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two… Happy Fathers Day to all the Fathers passing through and to all of the women I wish a Happy Fathers day to your husbands and fathers too! :) It is the first Fathers Day for my son and I felt it was appropriate to write a poem for him and thought you may enjoy reading it as well.

Thank you :)
