Truth – Tree

“Our word “true” is closely related to the word “tree”. They both grew from the same root in the ancient Proto-Indo-European word “deru”, which mean “oak”. In many languages the vast Indo-European family, the same roots have produced words that mean “strength” or “strong”. The related word “druid” sounds a bit like “true” and meant, “one who knows oaks”. A tree and the truth are both things of beauty. They are both strong; they hold up. The closer one looks at them, the more there is too see. Truth has deep roots in reality and reaches toward heaven. Truth, like good wood, has strong fiber that bear weight and hang together. Truth is beautiful and orderly when closely inspected under high resolution where falsehood quickly pixelates showing itself to be full of holes. What is true is real, and that is its advantage over a lie.”

Rollin’ stones
Like building a hearth
Like inventorying reptiles in the dark
Like tryn’a find the perfect piece to make a spark
A perfect peace (somewhere in the middle)
Gathering just enough moss to make the perfect [mark]

V.
All in due time
All in the rhythm & the rhyme
All in findings of the mind, for One & ALL
in the One Mind of The ALL
And at that
That’s that

A correspondence between surfaces and lifestyle

Consider it a poem

Impervious surfaces are a man-made construct which disconnect us from the organic way of life. ‘Way’ in a literal sense; the way we flatten the surfaces we dwell on and the paths we travel by foot and vehicle is akin to the way we flatten our expected path and dwellings in life. The ground unaltered by man is irregular with various lumps and microclimates, and that varied terrain is more like the emotional terrain we encounter in our lives. We form expectations that the emotional terrain we will experience shall be level and predictable, like the paved surfaces we build, but this expectation is often unmet because it is not the true terrain of this world.
The analogy between physical terrain and emotional terrain has other examples too, however occulted, which can be revealed with further reflection.
One example is the terrain of learning. With our man-made constructs we learn through steps which lead to doorways; like walking along a path and turning to climb steps up to a door to enter a house. Within a man-made ‘house of knowledge’ there are various doors and maybe even different dwellings, like apartments that share the same floor or maybe take climbing further steps to access. With the terrain unaltered by man we see a different analogous ‘way’ of learning. In the wild our paths are much freer, likely to be irregular and progress in a very organic way unique to each individual’s conditions. There are certainly some points higher than others, but these high points on the path of knowledge are different than that of the man-made way. One may find a slope and climb it, persevering through all its topographic and other challenges. It is unlikely to find a ‘closed room’ in this wild space, yet as one climbs the mountains of knowledge, there will be precipices and plateaus one may peak at. If one climbs further, beyond the ‘false peaks’ that offer what some call ‘half-truths’ on the path of knowledge, one may reach a true peak with the highest view on that individual mountain; the mountain offers a 360 degree view freely from this point to all who earn it. As the mountain gives the view and the traveler takes it, we can remember that some things good alone are better experienced together, and this inspires thoughts of sharing knowledge and experience. A whole different set of analogous lessons is available on that point, by considering how conductance of power works in electrical engineering and how that may be akin to our own personal power and relationship with the force(s) of life in this world.

“Inner Fire” Poem

I like to learn
Something inside of me burns
It  yearns for life and longs for death
Like a freight train, right brain says to left brain “you complain too much, you’ve got to learn to love”
Left says to right, “Right, but we must find balance, for the day turns night.”
And like a flash of light, TRANSIT ION comes into site

I like to learn
Something inside of me churns
The world turns and the Sun races through Space
Who’s the winner?
Must be me as I enjoy a good dinner
Was it the dear as it enjoyed a good life? Or did all that disappear when its day turned night?

I like to learn
Weaving webs of Blue, Green, Red
Tredding lightly as in night I can’t see
I might get smacked by a tree, I might smack a tree
I might have to act a tree and just Be
The Tree of Life

Love,
I&I

Costa Rica Coast

Costa Rica Coast

South and West from the North, and back to the North

 

Where the water meets the land
One side wet, one side soft sand
To the Earth I give my foot and to the Air I give my hand
Where one part finds one part is where we find the balance to start, or finish
This way or that; to the forest or to the vastness
To rise or to sink
To act or to think
To cultivate or to diminish

Like an equinox, for a moment in the turning of the clock
We stand at a space where we share equal day and night
But we mustn’t stay, for time doesn’t wait and tides vibrate
And so we embark, to the solar south summer or the polar north winter
To the rocky mountains or the slimy sea
It matters not so much which way you go, but that you go at All
On your way to find Me
