Listen To Your Self

NOISE-OFF

For a moment
turn off the noise
and listen.

No music.
No video.

Simply be still
and try to hear You.

This might take some time -
because we have been inundated
and conditioned to have so much
sound become the background of
our lives that we don’t even
know what “We” sound like.… —-> Continue…

I see great people… What do you see?

Last week I’m at the store walking
around an aisle when all of a sudden,
a line from a movie pops in my head;

“I see dead people,
only they don’t know they’re dead.”

(this is my paraphrased version -
I haven’t seen the movie in 7+ years)

To which my mind echoed back this,
and it’s been haunting me ever since:

“I see great people,
only they don’t know they’re great…”

It took me a week to write this piece
because I don’t know how to convince

“I love you, Dad”

Looking back at the morning’s events,
I’d carried a heavy heart through the day.… —-> Continue…

Take That First Step…

quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.

“You don’t have to see
the whole staircase,
just take the first step.”

When I read this, I pictured a spiral staircase -
one that quickly turned out of sight as it twisted upward.… —-> Continue…

In Ever Loving Memory of Dad…

“Will you be a pallbearer?” he asked me.
I looked at him – not understanding the question.
A pallbearer is someone who helps carry a casket
at a funeral, and we weren’t having a funeral.
We were just… we were just here.… —-> Continue…

What is more important?

changing-the-world-1
What are you doing right now
that is more important than changing the World?

That annoying question popped up
for me while I was shaving.
At first I thought it was directed at me -
because at times I find myself caught up
in petty pursuits that have no real
meaning in the big scheme of Life.… —-> Continue…
