i think i meant i think i said

I meant to say a few things about what it means to be a blogger. you’re always thinking, talking, reading, writing. You’re always looking at what’s outside your window and what’s on the news, even if none of it makes any sense. gotta think, gotta type, gotta write. Gotta love, gotta work, gotta play, gotta love.

Gotta eat your broccoli. Gotta be in with the out crowd, up with the down crowd. Gotta be, gotta do, gotta do be do be do.

When you sit down at your keyboard you’re like, hey, I should write something about that Facebook post about that tweet about that thing somebody saw on Reddit. And so you write. Hopefully you write more than a few words. Maybe 120 words or so; but then you keep on writing. And you keep on keeping on writing. And before long you have a magnum opus before you and the essay is written and the proof is perfected and the stars have fallen and the sun has darkened and the moon will not give its light. Therefore, QED.

But what of the people who love to love, who love to serve, who love to live, who love to work together in serried lines. They are cereal servers. What of the people who put on their shoes and go pick up the kids for the children’s class and holler at the junior youth. And then a hundred and twenty people show up at the door of the community centre and they’re like, we want in. I wanna change first. But I want society to change too. But hey, you can have it both ways. No need for delicious dichotomies. Cool, let’s go. And then you change the world.

So what about that time we went to the reflection meting and were like what’s up, we got entry by troops. And you were like really? and we were like ya. and u were like, cool. So we got some shawarmas and doogh and mazeltovs and you don’t stop, rah rah siss boom bah.

reaching for my pen as i
clutch my notebook as i
turn my head to glance
out the window where the
snow falls in fat joyful clumps,
i prop myself up in my chair,
ill-fitting but warm.

peering out into the soft white tapestry
i make a list: of things that
increase the joy of life,
that increase the force of love
that binds the universe together.
i am taking an inventory,
measuring a spiritual space.

as i put bullet after bullet into
these quiet, blank pages
i ponder the dimensions i am discovering
in the silence of a winter day’s reflection,
that are spread upon subtle axes
that elude sight and defy description
in tome or academic treatise.

and yet here they are,
these secrets, laid bare upon the page
for those with eyes to see:
this is the rhythm of the universe,
those treasured symbols
pursued by saints and sages
since the world’s true dawn.

quotes for the feast of questions

The All-Knowing Physician hath His finger on the pulse of mankind. He perceiveth the disease, and prescribeth, in His unerring wisdom, the remedy.

Every age hath its own problem, and every soul its particular aspiration. The remedy the world needeth in its present-day afflictions can never be the same as that which a subsequent age may require.

Be anxiously concerned with the needs of the age ye live in, and center your deliberations on its exigencies and requirements.

Baha’u’llah
Immerse yourselves in the ocean of My words, that ye may unravel its secrets, and discover all the pearls of wisdom that lie hid in its depths.

Baha’u’llah
It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

The meditative faculty is akin to the mirror; if you put it before earthly objects it will reflect them. Therefore if the spirit of man is contemplating earthly subjects he will be informed of these. But if you turn the mirror of your spirits heavenwards, the heavenly constellations and the rays of the Sun of Reality will be reflected in your hearts, and the virtues of the Kingdom will be obtained.

Abdu’l-Baha
Take ye counsel together in all matters, inasmuch as consultation is the lamp of guidance which leadeth the way, and is the bestower of understanding.

Baha’u’llah
Consultation bestoweth greater awareness and transmuteth conjecture into certitude. It is a shining light which, in a dark world, leadeth the way and guideth.

Baha’u’llah
In this Cause consultation is of vital importance, but spiritual conference and not the mere voicing of personal views is intended… Parliamentary procedure should have for its object the attainment of the light of truth upon questions presented and not furnish a battleground for opposition and self-opinion. Antagonism and contradiction are unfortunate and always destructive to truth.

Abdu’l-Baha
The essence of all that We have revealed for thee is Justice, is for man to free himself from idle fancy and imitation, discern with the eye of oneness His glorious handiwork, and look into all things with a searching eye.

Baha’u’llah

looking for reflections

Into a brand new
Realm of
Existence we go
As we stand and
Look deeply into the
Light that shines
Yellow from street lamps
As we breathe and
Meditate on the
Space we take at this
Time on this earth
Under the supernal sky
Calmly cultivating our
Knowledge of eternity
