Though at times hard visualize
Floating in the nebula of Divine purity
Light and dark had no corruption.
Balanced in total bliss
Blending in unity for all eternity.
Then this dream
Ripping, piercing, corrupting
with thoughts alien
Gasping, grasping, and screaming
as light of this world burns through
now blurred vision.
Panic floods my solid thoughts.
Where are you? Why can I not feel you?
Waiting for this dream to end never knowing
what lies in wait.
Without ever needing to know your name
for there was never separation before.
Song once so siren lost to mortal scream
Betrayal, denial, sadness. What are these?
Why does memory fade with each blink of an eye?
Then with time this dream becomes more reality.
Dream's in the night fading with morning light.
Till one day this new dream lingers and I remember.
You were always there
Always by my side if only but a dream
The pain of ego's corruption just an illusion
Your radiance piercing the clouded mind
Love so pure if only for a moment
Thought lost and drowning at sea
Do I only now realize the calming breeze
Rising to the top now floating on a cloud
In the reflection of her eyes
do I finally find my Divine quest at end.
The rhythm of two souls as one.
In that simple moment of recognition
all doubts and fears laid waste
and mortality brings back memories
of an eternity of balance and Divine love.
Entwined once more
the dreaming time crosses through
time and space once more have no meaning.
What was once thought lost never was.
Now more precious the love felt
Even ego's grasp can not forget
The purest radiance of your soul that illuminates every pore.
Blissful as Springs early whisper upon Winter's ear.
My love you bring a smile of joyful glee upon my soul.
Unconditional love to a conscious that now knows no bounds.
To see it in you all
Yet to have lost it within myself
This potential which radiates through the soul
Maybe it is being so close to the abyss
That allows me to see that which is most dear to me
Ego's cloak wrapped so tight
Fighting from within why can't I give in?
Finding inspiration from source unfound
A voice yet unheard set's ego's cloak asunder
That glow so familiar yet can it be
From me that heart beats with truth of love?
Rain drops cascading to the ground
It's source found in the clouds crossing mine eyes
At last the blind begger now sees
Immortality of being lies within the Divinity of soul
The One breathed love into our shell's
Waking the soul within instinctually
Born into this world to send and recieve love
Taking this potential that is love and evolving
Sending it out once more to be found by another
To add to and send it along in an infinite mobius loop
Love is instinctual and knows no bounds
Never give up on it for it will never give up on you
It is as impossible as it is immortal
Love in the end
What is time,
But one drop of rain
in the infinite universe of liquidity.
Living in each moment
there is no time.
Only the space of reality
upon which your foundation
knows no bounds.
Is it any different with love?
Only the space upon which
your heart and soul has purchased
in the moment can it be realized.
Then is it left to the mind to grasp
such moments? Less the moment is lost
and one drop of rain falls
burdened with the led weight of time.
For is it not when love is lost
that we feel the weight of time upon us?
Living in each moment seems impossible
and the rain turns to torrents of tears.
My mind may never fully grasp this concept
Yet here I sit in the rain of the moment.
Time has no hold and reality is mine to choose.
Why does it take some till deaths door to see?
In the end maybe because the physical world
and Ego's stubborn hold upon it could not let go.
When nothing else matters and there is nothing to gain
It is then that a soul finds there is nothing to loose.
As the mind goes quiet time becomes nothing
and everything at once.
The Mobius Continum makes all the impossible possible
as the soul leaps from physical body to infinite love.
Why wait for death's last gasp?
Realize the potential of each moment.
Casting time's heavy gravity aside.
Immortality awaits the bold
who would catch the universe
in one rain drop of infinite love.
The selfish me
The selfish me will not wait
Pacing, stomping, rushing,
and running a mucking
Grabbing minds attention
with ego's self-inflation.
Patience must give into more practical things;
like instant gratification, notoriety, greed, lust.
Now? Yes, now it can not wait!
Consequences be damned!
Sacrifice tomorrow for the pleasure of today!
What can be more important than me?
Only me isn't it obvious
Just look and tell what you see
I have no use for needs Please!
Shiny, pretty, expensive things
will only suit my needs!
What? That breeze. Oh NO!
I want to sneeze!
Patience, calm? Think I am going to be sick.
You think you've won?
Higher self is it now to be?
Yet even you will see.
No matter how hard you deny.
Selfish me will have my wants eventually.
For human is this shell
flawed and beautiful.
Thus my will be done
Through each crack
Soul's grace can never truly hold me back.
Demons? HA! Don't make me laugh
I am more demon than you will ever need
Hell? Is the conscious Soul that would keep me bound
So be a good mate and put a good word in
We could use a few shiny baubles.
Promise to be me....VvvV
The soul has all eternity to unfold
Yet while we are placed in mortal mold
For a time our soul's sleep fitfully
In that space between slumber and awake
Ego's frantic whispers cause panic
Screaming time is running out and "I" will end
When dire is the hour so to does the soul awake
Beaten down with hope lost Ego gives over it's hold
The silent vibration of a sigh as frequency matches pitch
All thoughts of here and now stop
Space and time loose their grip
Physical limitations stripped bare
Vibrations rippling louder till at last
The wall deep within shatters like glass
And the soul of the man takes hold
Remembering the foundation that was laid down so long ago
Every blessing, every sacrifice made on your behalf, every teacher,
Every loved one, every good deed done, and every good word spoken
Ego's last gift pulling all those thoughts within
As the soul merges into physical from deep within
The frequency ripples up and out flowing like a fountain
Cascading infinitely out into the universe
What seemed impossible before
Now only the adversary can stand in awe
Magic lies within reach at that moment
For mind, body, and soul are one
No matter the previous failures you will not fall!
For the Divine laid the foundation of love long before birth
The soul within ever so patiently waiting to awaken
Ignite the inferno of the three within
Then watch time and space begin to crumble
Eternity lies within each moment as impossible becomes reality
We see the Holy Trinity of mind, body, and soul
Finally evolve into one truth.
There are times of weakness,
times when no matter how many souls are around
still you feel alone.
There are times you feel so sick,
you wonder how can you continue.
To surrender this gift,
It would be so peacefull,
allowing the soothing,
hypnotic swirls of the ebon abyss
to claim you.
So, you fall.
there it is that brilliant flash,
the memories of season's past.
A spark ignited,
it's flame burns stronger.
It's embers spreading,
as it consumes the soul in a raging inferno
Coursing through your veins,
this fire rages to your heart.
Somehow, your heart beat gains strength,
sending that fire of hope into your lungs.
Heart and lungs joined as one,
nourishing your body with hope.
Hope that only the soul within can give.
Eyes bolting open as you realize!
I am falling into the abyss!
Not ready, arms reach out for anything.
Is it to late?
Then your hands find hold,
your eyes focusing.
Finding many pairs of eyes gazing upon you.
Further focusing what do you see,
many hands reaching out for your's.
Who are these souls?
Your friends, and family.
For you were never alone,
each giving a piece of themselves.
Giving you strength,
What can be found when diving deeper into my fellow bloggers hearts? What is on the surface is for anyone to see, but lies just beneath?In 90% of what I write I try to inspire those that might find their gaze upon my writings. Most of what I write I do so from my own life experiences or from the emotion felt from those around me.Today I simply ask.....Please inspire me with something.
Knight or Jester?
Always a gentlemen as you will see.
Removing my helm with a noble bow
Your radiant soul humbles the jester
Yet reminds the knight of humility.
Can you see me now?
Have you guessed that which I am?
Yet your kindness might say that I am both.
Though you would be wrong.
If it is a knight then what a horrible knight I must be.
For what knight would so easily forget purpose of being?
To run from the battle before it has truly begun.
That is no knight indeed.
If it is a jester then surely the joke is on me.
To have taken so much with nothing to show.
For nobility to have a laugh or two then on their way.
A jester maybe the juries still out.
The shadows of the past no longer a joke.
They cling to my soul like a dark winter's cloak.
Though if it's true and hindsight is twenty / twenty.
Then surely my vision must match an eagles eye.
Yet in the end Knight or Jester both would seek the same.
Searching for redemption but never really expecting it to be found.
The Knight's humility unable to find himself worthy
The Jester's irony unable to fathom sincerity.
Only one thing left to do
Give into that which both have abound
The heart to give freely to those loved
And the soul within to give voice to the heart.
~One Knight of the Light~
A hard decision made. However, after seeing some of the profiles of the wonderful women here at MM I have to agree with them.
Many have disabled their winks. It makes sense to them for if a man can not find the words to from his heart to catch your eye. Then why wink?
So here I am disabling my own wink whether genius or folly maybe you can tell me.
I think my blogs and my profile represent me well. Many of you have written wonderful replies, or we email back and forth.
The thing is I am looking for my soul's great love. I have dreamed about her since I was a boy. Her courage and patience in finding me simply outshines my own perseverance.
So I would hope that she would take the time to write to me either in replies to my blogs or email me if she is to be found here.
For surely I have done the same. Though I do not know your name still I seek to find you. Never asking anything of you that I would not do myself.
So tell me is this to bold? Or is it the course needed to aid my quest?
~One Knight in the Light~
A Soul's Thirst
Earning your trust
Finding your love so willingly given
I smile thinking of you
And what you mean to me
Something deep within
The basement of my mind stirs
At first I cannot place it's want
Then remembering with vivid detail
Of the depth less oceans of your eyes
Leading me to the Divine
Feeling the want grow stronger
A thirst to see you once more
To hear your soft melodic voice
Talking of hopes and desires
With each new thought
The thirst so much greater
As if on the sand's of Sahara at noon
With only mirages to torment this thirst
Some how I must quench this thirst
To once again be lost
In those ocean's of your eyes
Where my thirst is instantly sated
By the wondrous love of your soul
Finally coming home my soul made whole
Greeted with a kiss
Soft as goose down on my lips
Sweeter than the finest honey
Diving deep into those eyes so bright
They dance with mischievous glee
I finally see what is before me
That my thirst will always be
Unquenchable without you next to me
One Knight in the Light,
From the day we are born to this world love is given. She worked so hard to bring us out into this bright noisy world. Helping to give us a foundation in our lives to stand solidly upon, and love us so unconditionally. Protecting us like a mother tiger against any odds she stands. Regardless of our flaws she picks us up when we fall.
Why? All because she loves you. So Remember her this Sunday. Whether here or watching down from above she is always watching over you.
Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers who have worked so hard to make us something more than what we ever thought we could be. Thank you for seeing the potential in us even when we thought hope was lost.
One Knight in the Light,
Speaking without words
for once thoughts become bound within the boundaries of words, such words can never convey the emotion and intensity of such thoughts. Without a word but shown within each embrace as the strength of heart is felt melting through every pore into the soul of that which I embrace. Felt in the quickening of the heart beat till it matches in rhythm with it's partners intensity.
Within the depth less oceans that lead to the soul. Where finally emotion is heard without a word, and a smile spreads like wildfire from within and love is found.
One Knight in the Light,
What will it take to find Heaven within the soul of the one I seek?
The standard is set so high beyond the ego's eye.
Fear can freeze the heart
let your Heavenly gaze ignite
this souls furnace once more.
Heart ablaze in glorious joy
Fear burned to ash as unconditional love is finally found.
What will it take to find Heaven in the soul of the one I seek?
One Knight in the Light,
For that which was a good audience and outlet for my writing. I bid adieu. Life needs to be lived to the fullest and without holding back.
Happiness in love and peace of heart and mind to all who seek that which they are missing.
Crying for pain of ego
Running through life
Blinders on forgetting precious gift given
Screeching screaming to a halt
With only silence echoing in the wind
One life gone another hanging by a thread
In one instant mortality grips the heart
Where is my child? Do they know I love them?
After the code given and sprinting to the phone
Trembling fingers fumbling to find speed dial
Each pause between rings an eternity of silence
Till the small voice answers....Hello?
Laughing at the silliness my crackling voice
Just calling to tell you I love you...
Such a simple thing to say
Yet one that every parent does not get to say
One child is now one parent less
So never take your life for granted
It is a precious gift received
In our race to grow up we sometimes forget
The precious little things that mean so dear
Always take the time to remind
Those who are loved know they are
With unconditional joy in your heart
And say a prayer for the little one
Whose life is hanging by a thread
Now one parent less
One less friend
That which is
That which can be again
Though truth be told
It should never be bold
For the one seeking it
May only want a lie
This lesson learned
No matter the student
Will cause great pain
And one less friend do I find
For though truth be said
Seekers not ready will blindly blame
Those who would only help
Though I still pray for those in distress
Still I sit here with one friend less
Until that which once was
Can become that which is once again
Gentle breezes dancing through her hair
Two random locks tickle her nose
Brushing them back soul's oceans revealed
Soft lips smiling with sensual radiance
Sparks this man's soul into motion
Truth be told this poet's at a loss
For no words can justify that which he see's
A painting may tell a thousand words
Then a million more may be found
in the moment of her smile.
Only a simple man yet still I dream
If only I had found my voice
To feel beauty's radiance once more.
Transcendence beyond all boundaries uniting ourselves through humanities grace.

Looking at this code I hear in these words many different religions. I hear Christian's apostle's creed, the Tao's wise sages, the Celtic Druids, and I am sure if you listen you will hear the words of your religion calling out to you. Even if you don't believe in religion all you need is a set of morales or something you can believe in.
I will tell you following this way of life is hard. I can look at this code and say with certainty that I have failed all thirteen in my life repeatedly. Yet because I have even for the shortest of time attained this way of life I am better for it. And because I falter I see the imperfections and so strive that much harder to get back to that way of life.
If everyone strived to work on just the first five parts of this code imagine the results. Once you begin working on even the first step you may find all the others falling into place in time. Accept the fact that we are flawed and will falter at times, but also take action when we do falter. It just may change your way of life.
This is in response to a request on what is a knights code. Please forgive any misspellings as it is late.
Peace to all!
She is here before me
Yet I have not seen her face
Her words like triphammer
Driving their depth and meaning
Beyond my simple mind
With a perspective
That pierces the soul
Yet her voice I have not heard
Laughing with me
Never at me
She knows who she is
I can sense her
dancing upon her lips
Because of her
I can never be
That which I once was
My hunger for life's lessons
Now has no bounds
I honor you my love
For no one else
Has caused me to pause
Nor challenged my views
Of this world around me
And for that I thank you
With perspectives anew
Found with humillities grace
With such a radiant face
Dance with me
Upon the shore's of faith
Where waves of unconditional love
Infinitly ebb and swell to the beating of our hearts
To protect that which is precious.
Questing for that which can never be truly found externally, and
ignoring the pain of falling through the glass shards and gravel in this search.
Picking yourself up and pushing on even when giving up would be bliss
For the Abyss always swirling just beneath conciousness whispers of disasters to come.
Faltering is not an option!
For to falter in this quest means the end of something more than self.
So instead you recite the purpose from which you have latched hold of in this life.
Be true and at peace with your God in whatever form the Divine might be to you
Respect yourself and the divine spark in all creation
Be a trusted friend and ally always honoring your word
Own yourself and let no substance or addiction run your life
Being spiritually, mentally, and phyiscally strong you seek to help those who can not help themselves
Having a light heart and a sense of humor but knowing when a joke can become destructive
Use grace and dignity in words as well as in deeds
Taking responsibility for your words and actions
When halfway through the prayer you realize that though you will fall at times for the imperfections of being human. The only hope of redemption is getting up and brushing yourself off. Taking the abyssal darkness and throwing it screaming into the Divine light where there is no hiding in the shadows.
Everything you do and say has an effect upon another whether you realize it or not. Never give up for the Divine spark will never give up on you.
