The Flame of Awareness

The flame of awareness
Never wavers, never dims

Always there to guide us
Teach compassion, teach love’s no sin

Even bottled up it steers us
Sudden insights, intuition flashing

Drives us to learn lessons
Again and again

Dare to reach for that sacred flame
Passions revealed, life path gained

Honour the will to search within
Open space, draw breath in

Approach with love, tenderly
Let truth free you, let truth win

Change Time

Every time today I sit to write.

Change your story. Change your life.

Everyday rudely break my line.

Change your life. Change your story.

Supply adding distract to inner strife.

Change your story. Change your world.

There’s just one more little thing.

Change your world. Change your story.

Needed as both mother and spouse.

Change your story. Change your life.

Finally steal a moment to write.

Change your life. Change the world

My mind filled with incessant chant.

Change the world. Change your chant.

Let your inner voice be heard.

Change your life. Change the world.

Peel by Peel

Ever felt the need to go deep
To soul-wisdom seek
Peel away personas, distractions, searching, fear
Find way to hear
Courage to all parts of yourself meet
What will you feel
Who will you be
After layers, peel by peel
True inner self reveal

Once again I’m sleepless in Stockholm. So I gave up on tossing and turning to see what I could do with peel. And ended up with a take on “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.” Meaning a fair warning for those that consider going into deeper meditation. It can – temporarily – feel like hell, but there’s hope and love in the other end.

Posted as response to Quadrille #98 – Peelings, Nothing More…

Will we awake?

Humankind is in denial…
When rain turned to acid,
we didn’t stop polluting.
Neither when rivers turned to poisonous foam.
Plastic trash are everywhere,
though research told us long ago,
that nature can’t break down plastics. 
So now sea creatures eat plastic,
and beaches are sand mixed micro-plastics.

People hold funerals and put up plaques for dead glaciers,
still we increase our use of fossil fuels,
ever increasing global warming.
Weather patterns is turning chaotic, extreme,
yet we still debate human impact, while;
the polar caps melt, bush burns, drought last for years,
and big storm system drench more than ever before.

When children go on strike to get grown-ups to listen,
many belittle them instead of change behavior. 

Will we awake before;
The caps have melted.
Low lying or poorly drained land is submerged due to rising sea levels.
The deserts of the world grows ever bigger, drier, more unlivable.
Fresh water is scarce.
Crops grow badly due to changed growth zones,
few pollinators, and depleted, poisoned soil. 
Massive unfightable fires rage across huge swathes of continents.

Human starve,  and thirst.
Flee unlivable lands.
Fights war over arable land and drinkable water.

Build humongous walls to keep the rightly coloured, rich people in.
Deadly no man’s land.
Even bigger, industrialized countries of refugee camps,
where the wrongly colored poor,
live their life in concentration camp horror.
Where Death become a blessing.

I know I’ve written about this before, but I think it’s to important an issue, so it will keep coming up in my writing.
