    do you know the difference between a window and a mirror?
    do you know the sameness between a window and a mirror?

    Oh Companion That Abode Is Unmatched,
    Where My Complete Beloved Is.
    In that Place There Is No Happiness or Unhappiness,
    No Truth or Untruth
    Neither Sin Nor Virtue.
    There Is No Day or Night, No Moon or Sun,
    There Is Radiance Without Light.

    There Is No Knowledge or Meditation
    No Repetition of Mantra or Austerities,
    Neither Speech Coming From Vedas or Books.
    Doing, Not-Doing, Holding, Leaving
    All These Are All Lost Too In This Place.

    No Home, No Homeless, Neither Outside or Inside,
    Micro and Macrocosm Are Non-Existent.
    Five Elemental Constituents and the Trinity Are Both Not There
    Witnessing Un-struck Shabad Sound is Also Not There.

    No Root or Flower, Neither Branch or Seed,
    Without a Tree Fruits are Adorning,
    Primordial Om Sound, Breath-Synchronized Soham,
    This and That – All Are Absent, The Breath Too Unknown

    Where the Beloved Is There is Utterly Nothing
    Says Kabir I Have Come To Realize.
    Whoever Sees My Indicative Sign
    Will Accomplish the Goal of Liberation.

    Oh sweet truth
    like the freedom you come
    there is nothing that can stop you
    in you there is always something to be seen
    bright light you bring into our souls

    You and me, we belong together
    I will always hold you
    and never let you go

    Sometimes things seem so unreal
    when your around everything is clear
    some try to hide you and some to change
    but you never disappear

    When we think
    we think about you
    what we need
    is related to you

    Your divinity is seen
    good or bad your value
    is non comparable always desirable.
    Just because I'm ugly doesn't mean that I'm a witch and that I do bad things, I'm ugly of the toxins that had an affect on me wile trying to find a cure for your sorry ass.

    Creation creating creation
    Victory is where this ends, begins and continues
    Why not just some fucked up something?
    A picture
    A glimpse


    Purity
    If it ever existed
    is Evereything
    Our world, our reality
    is filled by impossibilities


    I could not possibly exist
    neither could you
    yet
    we
    do


    Just fucking go!
    do
    be
    now
    THIS is How
    Love Truth Wisdom

    lovely poems guys!
    wrote this one last night....

    deep in samadhi
    transcend the body
    balance the nadis
    and rise through sushumna
    open chakras like petunias
    be All in the sunya (means "void")
    come back and be simple
    the body's a temple
    smile, show your dimples
    and kindness to others
    all men are brothers
    and all come from mothers
    who bore them
    be sure to adore them
    novus ordo seclorum
    "new order of the ages"
    time to leave the cages
    it's not so outrageous
    to think we can have peace
    each be their own priests
    multiply and increase
    the love that you're feeling
    so we can finish healing
    does that sound appealing?

    The Dash
    by Linda Ellis copyright 1996

    I read of a man who stood to speak
    at the funeral of a friend.
    He referred to the dates on her tombstone,
    from the beginning…to the end.

    He noted that first came the date of her birth
    and spoke of the following date with tears,
    but he said what mattered most of all
    was the dash between those years.

    For that dash represents all the time
    that she spent alive on earth.
    And now only those who loved her
    know what that little line is worth.

    For it matters not, how much we own,
    the cars…the house…the cash.
    What matters is how we live and love
    and how we spend our dash.

    So, think about this long and hard.
    Are there things you’d like to change?
    For you never know how much time is left
    that can still be rearranged.

    If we could just slow down enough
    to consider what’s true and real
    and always try to understand
    the way other people feel.

    And be less quick to anger
    and show appreciation more
    and love the people in our lives
    like we’ve never loved before.

    If we treat each other with respect
    and more often wear a smile,
    remembering that this special dash
    might only last a little while.

    So, when your eulogy is being read,
    with your life’s actions to rehash…
    would you be proud of the things they say
    about how you spent YOUR dash?
    Don’t let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    "Corruption, sin, depravity
    she pulls him in like gravity
    his gaze cannot break loose of hers
    he's falling down, like Lucifer
    a serpent's wisdom's no defense
    he'll bleed to feed her innocence
    and satisfy her every whim
    he falls each time she looks at him
    her eyes his heaven, her lips his Eden
    in her arms he finds his freedom
    under her spell, he loves her madly
    if this is hell, he'll suffer gladly
    tracing time on her back with his fingers
    catching the scent of her hair as he lingers
    too long by her neck, his lips brush her skin
    he whispers sweet nothings to see if she'll grin
    then turns her to face him, revolving her hips
    her eyes pause on his like a solar eclipse
    but he's already blind from staring too long
    forsaken his mind to her siren's song..."

    So I've realized recently that I've had a self-imposed writer's block since about 2006-2007, which is around the last time that I've completed any form of poetic composition. A few years ago I purchased a beat from a highly-respected local Chicago music DJ/producer in the hopes that it would spark in me some form of creativity and motivation towards writing again, but the block seemed to continue regardless of my efforts to motivate myself. So about a year ago I worked out a deal with one of my favorite hip-hop artists (hint: I've posted a lot of his music here) to get on the track with me, and have been waiting for the right moment when the inspiration would hit me to actually write something again myself..

    I had almost given up on my 'song that never was' until yesterday. I had been devoting all of my time the last few days to laboring in my lab, when all of the sudden the inspiration hit me. I wrote my portion of the song as a form of meditation as I practiced my practical work. Each of the four small sections of the verse are intended to represent a phase in the alchemical cycle. This is just my verse, the other artist(who I mentioned earlier) has also completed their contribution and there's room for at least 2 other artists/elements(4 total with the 5th representing the beat) on this piece. Once the track's completed I'll share it here, it may continue to evolve further before it's recorded but this is what I have so far:

    The Lapis:

    Past the Blackest opaque, a storm's raging along,
    Path's cast in darkness, the king's uncaging his pawn,
    His life a way to shed light, as the Rings bring the dawn,
    Piercing the veil - from Nothing springs life, Spiritus birthed in this song!

    Emerald notes devote vitality, while expanding the growth,
    Spawns maniac/insomniac, attack 'Agent Smith's' through their cloak,
    Gone/lost in Pan's forest, traverse this Labyrinth of Oak,
    Old-Tree springs stream of consciousness, through it's roots floats a boat

    Sailing waves of realization, ascend Himalayan White-tipped peaks,
    Concentric-circles signifying the Bulls-eye that he seeks,
    Crown of Thorns an Antenna, Luna's reflecting her own seed,
    Dove's albino purity stained Red, the pelican must feed

    Scarlet drops of sulfurs-soul, complete the cycle to behold,
    Blazing ashes - flaming feathers, sparking secrets once untold,
    Gazing the Pool of Self-Reflection along this lost uncharted road,
    The Fool's fate's to find perfection, in your vile discarded Stone..
