My ‘Endless’ Pursuits

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

How well I see horizons, their beckoning glimmer rich in nature’s seduction. Like the end of a rainbow I beg place, yet it is without the grasping. I seek ends that remain endless, storms that relent to the perfection of silence, and stillness that draws in the calamity of life’s course. I bare witness to transformation and understand death, yet I cannot desist in seeking that which is beyond, one inch further, a sight unseen and an emotion unyielding. I am purpose in my rolled up flesh, the core of me clambering to reach the outside. Had my will a choice I would be inside out, my guts bleached under the harsh light of truth. Upon my sleeve is by my standards, understatement, me a pariah with conviction for truth and revealing it, out of hand. And here I lay prostrate, bare to the bone, all of me visible.

Am I quite mad? Perhaps, but of greater is risk to be viewed sane, and I shudder at that responsibility. Ignorance may well be blissful, but in praying for that I fall deeper into the void of my minds aspirations, to know and to understand. That, I cannot deny.

We are born with a nature, an intrinsic soul seeking resolution to the whispers of purpose. In finding it we journey well within the path of right, discovery and painless passage the fruits of reward. When we cross our nature we fail from the outset, treading on paths not destined and foreign. Within these paths walls are many, uneven ground sharp and offering only peril. Injury is all but expected when we ignore truth and force our will on life.

When we acknowledge our true nature and walk a chosen path all folly recedes into shadow and gifts begin to arrive, unexpected but advantageous. The universe suddenly favours and life in all its complexity begins to fall into place. With each step and right decision, that process prevails and life appears as miraculous in its attention to the detail of your life. These are merely indications of a sound direction; the signs are always there for a mind open to see them.

How deep is deep and how long is success? The answer is infinite and once a soul resides in right it is unquestionable and endless. How we deliberate and question things without value, without any purpose other than superficiality, is quite absurd. So easily we fall to the trappings of physical life without recognising the real values and potential of the life experience. Love and the aspirations of a learning soul are a more equitable passage, but in reality much ignored. One must find a balance between the physical and the spiritual path but the foundation of success comes from the core, the essence of your being. Without addressing that first, there can be no real success, no stillness of the heart, peace and tranquillity.

I remain the seeker, for me it is my purpose, and my passion is unabated. Each step the beginning of yet another. All I can do is to share my sight, my experience, with a loving hand, a pen on a page. This I do with great joy.

      Wow. There isn't much else I can say. You have left me speechless, which is something that I pride myself on the fact that doesn't happen often. I especially loved the last paragraph. As always your choice of words is magnificent as is your placement and usage. Truly stupendous work. You have outdone yourself this time. I applaud you sir
