vertical line Posted on Apr.05.2012 @ 11:30PM EDT by Woodsman
Well, I've always thought of myself as an introvert, kind of keep to myself with ideas and feelings, not a good eye-contactor, but somethin' now has changed. People are relating to me more directly now, like never before. Something has opened up in me. So I look out the window and see the moon rising, and it feels, ahhh just right, timing wise. Nothing left to wrong with, only unity contact left. Now there must be a deeper reason for my being, here, now. Just to say it is, is all, changed alright. I'm going this way to find, harmony.

vertical line These days I am content. Memories of the past and expectations of the future are not weighing on me. On good days I am okay and on bad days I am okay, too. In the next couple years what I expect of myself will be a gradual momentum towards truth and this is what I mean... "What works is what is truth, unlearn what is untrue." I am very intuitive to what works for me and what doesn't. I am not going to just assume my direction in life. I am going to live it right now and encounter life directly. And most of the time I don't know what to expect because it's like roaming alone in the unknown. Both love and indifference are there but realistically I open my eyes to things-in-themselves which is why I feel content. Which is why I am what I am.

I'm never sure of change so much as how consistent my life has been in the past several years. I seem to have the same drive towards meditation to movement or 'meditation movement' that plays a role in my daily life. In a true sense based on whatever contact I have of the world i.e newspapers, friends, television, internet etc. I am one that feels blessed in my own valid way to allow the subtle force of life to carry me instead of me forcing me. Change happens more within as bodily rather than without as worldly. Self is the bases of my own world living in the same humanity of change. I need my own world.

vertical line I am in my twenties and am starting off very simple with meditation. My dad started off simple too mowing lawns, living in tents and playing his guitar. From where I am today the feeling of potential growth could not be stronger.

vertical line Just woke up, worked a 12 hour shift last night. Was dreaming of fixing a doorway with a concrete panel, which wasn't heavy to lift and put above the door. Now drinking coffee, and waking up, more work tonight and tomorrow night, and more dreams, to rebuild this life. Sometimes dreams seem more real than reality.

vertical line The common house fly is an angel.

The earthworm is a life giving messenger.

Dogs are gods.

Gods are dogs.

People are space aliens.

Words form bridges of light in darkness, back to the mother animal planet.

vertical line "Can't chew gum and walk at the same time"
My school teacher would always make that comment ....
Guess he became attached to repeating the verses he learned as a child??

I always thought it would be easy to build something of concrete by pouring the walls in molds on the ground and then tilting them up into position and bolting them together.

Then just pour the slab floor in the middle, add on a roof, and presto !!
