Warrior King

"Our earth is wounded. Her oceans and lakes are sick; her rivers are like running sores; The air is filled with subtle posions. And the oily smoke of countless hellish fires blackens the sun. Men and women, scattered from homeland, family, friends, wander desolate and uncertain, scorched by a toxic sun...
In this desert of frightened, blind uncertainty, some take refuge in the pursuit of power. Some become manipulators of illusion and deceit.
If wisdom and harmony still dwell in this world, as other than a dream lost in an unopened book, they are hidden in our heartbeat.
And it is from our hearts that we cry out. We cry out and our voices are the single voice of this wounded earth. Our cries are a great wind across the earth."

Luke 5:16

"Your soul needs the wild."

Warrior Gezar

"This harsh and splendid land
With snow-covered rock mountains, cold crystal streams,
Deep forests of cypress, juniper and ash
Is as much my body as what you see before you here.
I cannot be separated from this or from you.
Our many hearts have only a single beat."

Butterfly

The sound barely audible
through my dry pursed lips.
My final breath escapes.
I die alone in nature’s soft embrace.

Briefly, darkness falls.
My senses cease.
My heart forgets to beat.
Blackness.
Nothingness, only momentarily;
Before my soul begins to
vibrate – hum.

Atoms, Particles, Remnants
of ME.
What once was, will now never be.

My self, My Identity, My I.
has shifted.
metamorphosed.
transmutated.
I am discombobulated.

I see the brightness.
I feel the warmth.
I am pulled towards the glow.

Contracting and Expanding.

I flow into the light.

I hear my Angel singing.
Every sound I have ever Loved
forming one new note.
My heart explodes from the joy.
Loving arms encircle and envelope me.

I am being welcomed home.
I feel the sense of returning
after a long journey.

I feel the sense of knowing
that my adventure has
been completed.

The all encompassing Love fills me;
Fills my soul.

I am complete.
I am ready.
I will re-enter all that I have ever Loved.

Every Flower.
Every Tree.
Every Animal.
Every Human.

The more I Loved the more I will forever be.

Hedges

"The reason the ecosystem is dying is not because we still have a dryer in our basement. It is because corporations look at everything, from human beings to the natural environment, as exploitable commodities. It is because consumption is the engine of corporate profits."

"People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within."

"Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face."

Rilke

"For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation."
