cause i dig my feet in the dirt every day
to leave the word of god tongue tied
and i scrape by with what i am
coming down from heaven with a hell of a hangover
and i drink every last dram of wine
to turn watered down into a curse
I'll wrestle my every night into dawn
but your cross, i left in the hearse
if you come to find me and my soul
we'll have our feet up at the last supper
and between us, middle…Continue

Leonard Cohen. 1934 - 2016
with Arlo Guthrie, 1967
Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget your perfect offering.
There's a crack in everything;
that's how the light gets…Continue
I would like to advocate the removal of the party system and replacing it with a system of Platforms that one must progress up through from the bottom to the top. This way no one would be at the top if he had not climbed all the rungs of the ladder. It would be mandatory for any who wants to serve in government.
Entrance into the School of Platforms would require certain…
Painted four hundred years ago-
Peter Paul Rubens, detail of "Alalanta and Meleager", 1613
I'm joking here, because we need some lightheartedness after a bruising political season and finale.
I could quote Yeats, who had a lot to say about oracles and prophesy, though that would be very serious stuff. It would be pertinent to this site, but maybe best to save it for another…Continue
Now what? Why have I been given this knowledge of who I am? Who will tell me how to use it? How to change my life and help heal the emotional wounds of people and be able to thrive financially. These 5 years have destroyed me financially. Making me weak physically when doing my old profession, but not allowing me to gain the experience to start a profession to heal. I can't get through the education that will give people comfort I know what I am doing in the healing realm. So I keep…Continue
Dare you see a Soul at the White Heat?
Then crouch within the door –
Red — is the Fire’s common tint –
But when the vivid Ore
Has vanquished Flame’s conditions,…

Introductions are always nice, this is going to be an explanation of few of the functions within the mind, and how to use your understanding of these functions to apply them to a model…
as if drawing his
lost leaves back
up to naked
the maple's quiet
silhouette pulls orange
silk from a waking
with you on the cusp
of dawn then with a single
into a fire of song ...

A message - any ascension is accompanied with the feeling of sadness. When you feel the happiness after it-you become in a higher state.

The garden is my mailbox
Instead of written word
I get these colored postcards
And delight at how absurd

I just wanted to introduce myself- My name is Tom and I promise that my next post will be longer!
I LIVE MY LIFE
I live my life in glowing orbits
which move out over the things of the world.
Perhaps I never can achieve the last one,
but that will be my attempt.
I am circling around God, around the ancient tower,
and I have been circling for a thousand years.
and still I don't know if I am a falcon,
or a storm, or a great…Continue

This is not
the age of information.
This is not
the age of information.
Forget the news,
and the radio,
and the blurred screen.
This is the time of loaves
People are hungry,
and one good word is bread
for a thousand.
The cosmic wave is spinning in my mind again
What is this tornado in my mind, is it me or is it you?
Is it the emotional barrier broken down is it the abys staring back.
What is left when the shadow evaporates when the darkness dissolves
What is there when the light illuminates the corners of the mind.
Nothing and everything at the same time.
Oh mind of minds, staring into me filled with divinity.
Make me stand tall in the midst of…Continue
When West Meets East
When East meets West, and West meets East
We’ll put the guns down in a circle, have a world-wide feast
When West meets East, and East meets West
Holding hands around the world, that business is the best
I’m in a hurry to get this planet straight. Don’t wanta wake up screaming, “It’s too late!”
I got to re-lax,…

a dead rose left
was it enough
from a wounded man
to a woman
would it be enough
could he change your mind
could he face it
could you face it
if it was lingering
could i face it for you
did you mean to tell her
when you called
when i answered
a brother said i'll take it
you take a drive

With trembling feet she walked between the trees in that cold moonless night. It was so dark and the snow had covered the ground. Chilling breeze would run through the clothes and get under her skin. It seemed impossible to be warm. The sky was so devoid of light, even the moon was hiding behind the clouds. The new moon of the wolf was the queen of the night, ruler of the skies and midnight dancer of the west.
She rubbed her hands against each other to create some heat with no avail.…Continue

A SONG STOLEN FROM THE PLACE BETWEEN LIVES
You’ve just arrived,
the brown wren,
dropped like a pebble
from history onto my shore,
where I gather fallen shadows
to stir with wind and rain.
I am the force of night
and solace for last days.
Consign to the sunlight
all regrets, and…Continue
