Taking The New And The Old And Mixing Them Together

Updated on August 19, 2011

A Sense Of Direction

Life is always changing

We can resist it every step of the way or we can welcome it with all our energies and spirit

I am not telling you something you didn't already know

What I am teaching you, however, is how to take all your thoughts and make them one

Putting your own spin on the things that matter most

Finding a way of taking the seriousness out and enjoying the little things that make you smile and laugh

How to appreciate one apple in an apple orchard where there are so many

Feeling the joy of giving and keep giving even if other people don't see or appreciate your time and effort

You are doing it for the sheer love of it

Watching something develop right before your eyes

You have seen nothing yet

There are no smoke and mirrors to conceal every trick , gift or talent and art

Just a list of words that display a colorful array of light that shines even when the light is turned off

We all can be so happy if we just practice being our true selves

There is no text book example to follow

Only a wonderful love that catches my breath each time I swollow

An incredible honesty that comes from under my skin

Like a duck when it's feathers get all ruffled and it's body is frazzled

Looking on to the life that we shall lead

Caring only how we can proceed

Trying our best efforts to make our success genuine

A reason to complete every task ever given

I look back at my past and still wonder why didn't I see it then

It seems so simple now

A life filled with freshness that is exposed like opening a fresh jar of coffee under our noses

I am not sure where I go from here

All I can say is I will be cheering you on today

When you make progress I feel the power

I feel the rush that sweeps me off my feet

I don't know how and am not sure why

But it is the sheer delight like riding a rocket into flight

Where I can feel the engines thrust

They burst with action with an emmense velosity

I cannot help notice that I am flying high into unchartered territory at this very moment

One that I can neither delay or control

For it is always just

This is the way life goes

I can get ansy and want so much more to come

Then all things will almost stop only to slow me down so I can appreciate what I see

All of life has a rythem and flow that can't be seen by the naked eye

As we feel it we can reassure ourselves it is real

So let it go and with it a piece of happiness will break off and separate

It can spread into a zillion pieces from there on out

As we all witness another day of happiness being delivered like a red hot pizza right from the oven to our mouths

Watching the steam rise and dissipate

Seeing is believing and giving is so much more fun than receiving

Since it isn't long before our tongues realize what has happened

The burning hot sensation we won't forget as other people watch with great anticipation

Of all their wild expectations developing into a strong sense of urgency

That still can't be explained but is sure entertaining as we try with all our endless attempts

To spread the word of goodness and the power of just a wonderful night

      Dim Flaxenwick You just curl my toes and send shivers down by spine.You have all your life experiences at our finger tips.I am learning from you.I secretly read you first every day how could you of known.You are always one step ahead of me.I am only a small string bean trying to grow.A little gold fish in a big pond filled with hundreds of other bigger fish.Whatever you put your energy towards that will make you the best at.(Maybe it will take years but who cares)We all have our own choice to decide what to do and where to spend our time.People love different things like politics,science,math,history,english,traveling,sports.The list is endless and so are our abilities.You are the only one that decides what you love to do and how you want to live each day.There is no right or wrong.As long as you don't hurt no one and enjoy doing it.So I thank you for being you and if you were like me then I wouldn't have as much fun and trying to stay one step ahead of you and always on the run.Special thanx to you for enjoying what I see feel and hear even if it can be sometimes quite weird.

      Everything you write is always so true, yet so difficult for a personality like mine to put into practice.

      I guess I should start each day with reading ÝOU´1st before I do anything. That might work, huh?

      Soumyasrajan I keep trying to unravel the mysteries of my life.If I can figure out my own life maybe someone else can figure out theirs.The most important thing is that we have a great time learning and laughing all the way.Thanx for such a wonderful comment.
