Water Element

Water is the one element;

out of the four:

air, fire, earth and water

that walks in the moccasins

of each of its siblings.

Water floats in the air,

a glittering rainbow

of powdered snow

drifting weightless

on air currents,

winking at the sun.

When torched by fire,

water steams mightily

driving monstrous locomotives

or cleansing human forms

in sightless, yet light-filled

sweat lodges and steam rooms.

Emulating its sister Earth,

water forms itself to the ground.

Huge glaciers bulldoze the earth.

Or water may cover the earths surface,

however uneven with smooth and shiny.

In its natural state

water flows to contour,

to whatever shape its given,

from riverbanks to ocean shores.

Always giving in graciously,

uniting and combining

No Photon of Darkness

I was taught

there is no evil,

only ignorance.

I struggled.

But what about….




I came to know

that evil is live

spelled backwards,

ignorance in practice.

The physical analogy?

There is no

particle of darkness.

There are only

particles of light: photons.

Evil, the dark,

has no substance,

no matter,

only an absence of light,

an absence of love.

There is no matter

with which you can

turn on the dark.

You can only

deny the light.

Once you shield yourself

from the light,

as undeserving perhaps,

your seemingly “real” world

is but Jung’s shadows

projected by the fire light

against the wall of the cave.

There is no substance there

except your belief.

From the high view

evil (dark) is simply

good (light) that

hasn’t arrived yet.

I am loving

watching the “light”

arrive in my life.

How is yours?

Finding stillness


is like reaching the

mountain top.

Re-framing thoughts,

like climbing the mountains

requires front and center focus.

Deal with this thought,

explore and understand it.

Love and release it.

Likewise in climbing,

it's put this foot in

front of the other,

eyes on the trail for safety.

But mental stillness

puts you on the mountain top.

Suddenly you are in

the center of open space.

Focus no longer limited

to the front view.

You can look in any


View changing freely

wthout holding

you in any limitation.

The stone pours open.

A tube taurus,

a lava upwelling

of light.

Stone Mountain


a beacon of light,

seeping into the ground.

Offering the compassion

of release to old sorrows

long held.

Stone Mountain



her huge belly

in rhythm with

the pulsing of light


Stone Mountain sounds,

a scratchy voice,

long silenced by sorrow

and deaf ears.

She thrums a deep sound

of pleasure,

a higher note of joy.

She hears again

the drum beat

of her sacredness


She feels the movement,

the opening,

the flow

of light.

Stone Mountain

once again a


A huge ray of light.

Rain falls gently,

irregular heart beats

on each leaf.

The rich green of deep summer

intermittent with shiny new leaves.

Irregular healing beats of green

for the eye and heart.

Healing coming in waves.

Waves of light of the shiny new

in this 3rd night of the Mayan

Universal underworld

of “assimilation of the new wave.”

Assimilation of the new,

from transformation with

Mictlantechutli, the God of Death,

For the old pains and old paths

of the civil war,

of slavery

of the trail of tears.

Transformation from

our internal civil war between:

the north, our spirit/soul self

separated from

the south of our physical form and daily life..

Assimilating our spirit into form,

expressing soul light through our bodies,

merging with our higher selves.

Assimilating the pure love and light.

Our birthright as

one organism of the whole.

May that which denies you

your own forgiveness


in the assimilation

of the light and love of

this day.
