Hello Everyone,

October 2015

I love October, not just because it is my birthday month but because the air changes, the season changes, the time changes.

It is when we must embrace the fact that the time change will have us seeing the dark sooner. A time when the trees begin to let loose the leaves, orange, brown and yellow leaves flying about.

It is the time when the ghouls and horrors are seen in decorations, shows, movies and parties.

It is the time when we say farewell to the summer heat, smile toward the cooler weather and wonder of the winter to come.

Happy October! May there be light within you to shine upon the earlier darker hours. May the ghouls and gremlins that ring the door bell make you smile and partake in trick or treat.

May you embrace the change in season knowing... it will bring us back to Spring soon enough.

I have added a tab - Whisper my words, which is a link to my site where I post stories, poems, AndMore events and the Watcher's Journal. Take a peek and enjoy.

Enjoy!

Inspiration me...Enlightenment

'The moment of enlightenment contains some of the dazzling characteristics of transfiguration, but the difference is that anyone can do it.' ~One moment meditation by martin boroson

'There are more ways to die than our hearts stopping on us, you know. There's living death too---a way of moving through our days that may seem like living, but its not in service to ourselves. ~Biting Back by Claudia Cunningham

'A person starts to live when he can live outside himself.' ~ Albert Einstein

I have been on emotional journeys that have left me...enlightened.  Even through the years of pain and numbness I would eventually see the lesson that needed to be learned.  How would I learn while just existing.  Each day is like a book of two pages.  Get up, go to work, do the commute again, watch a show, talk myself through getting ready to sleep and start that mundane existence.  On rare occasion a third page appears, but the reality is that the third page is the exception and not the rule.

It's a death I tell you.  To just exist.  To have no purpose.  Worse yet, a suicide to just go along with it.  I'm not a quitter.  Hell....I'm a down right rebel!  And I rebel this mere existence.

I sit while staring at the view of serenity.  The realization that this view I have learned to call my Zen will not be a view available for much longer.  However sad that realization is -- it invigorates me!  It is time to change the inner landscape as well as the outer.

Death you FIEND in whatever form you show - I tell you to BE GONE!  I've got some living to do, so get the hell out of my way.

Depression can kiss my ass.  Doubt can take a turn.  Negativity can just take a jet out.  I've got plans and I'm getting to it.

Are you just existing? Still?  Do you understand enlightenment starts from within?  Are you the walking dead?  Or...are you bending over slapping your butt while planning which direction to take next?
