Happily lost

I wait for you at an
unexpected place in your journey
like the rusted key
or the feather you do not pick up
until the way back

Leonard Cohen, from “The Way Back”

When I love
I feel that I am the king of time
I possess the earth and everything on it
and ride into the sun upon my horse.

When I love
I become liquid light
invisible to the eye
and the poems in my notebooks
become fields of mimosa and poppy.

When I love
the water gushes from my fingers
grass grows on my tongue
when I love
I become time outside all time.

When I love a woman
all the trees
run barefoot toward me…

A soul connection is a resonance between two people who respond to the essential beauty of each other’s individual natures, behind their facades, and who connect on this deeper level. This kind of mutual recognition provides the catalyst for a potent alchemy. It is a sacred alliance whose purpose is to help both partners discover and realize their deepest potentials. While a heart connection lets us appreciate those we love just as they are, a soul connection opens up a further dimension — seeing and loving them for who they could be, and for who we could become under their influence. This means recognizing that we both have an important part to play in helping each other become more fully who we are….A soul connection not only inspires us to expand, but also forces us to confront whatever stands in the way of that expansion.

The whole culture is one unified field of bought-sold-market-researched everything. It used to be that people fermented their own culture. It took hundreds of years. It evolved over time. That’s gone in America. People now don’t even have any concept that there ever was a culture outside of this thing that’s created to make money. Whatever’s the biggest, latest, they’re into it. I just get disgusted after a while with humanity for not having more intellectual curiosity about what’s behind all of this jive bullshit.

Sit, be still, and listen,
because you’re drunk
and we’re at
the edge of the roof.
