Wandering dark house

Standard

If you happened upon this house on an off trail hike, what would you do? Run or go inside? Something else? Knowing how people are, this can go three ways.

Wandering Dark House

#1- During a long hike, wandering off trail, I stumble across a seemingly long abandoned house. Looks like only nature is in possession of the grounds, so I’m going in! …Begin digging around…. Find a cool ancient rusty thimble. Pocket it. Suddenly I get scared by the spiders, raccoons n crows whose home I just barged into. Cobwebs and feathers bombard me. My eyes burn, I sneeze uncontrollably, and I run out screaming!…. Aaaaand trip on that root ….aaaaand bloody my forehead…..aaaand Get stung by a bee. Pull myself up with a branch wipe off the blood from my face. Aaaand that branch was wrapped in…..poison ivy! Aaaaaand now my eyes are swelling shut. Beautiful. I better leave that thimble. That house is possessed! Guarded by a thimble god and has booby traps. Don’t go in go away. Touch nothing and stay out. You’ll wish you had without a doubt.

#2 – During a long hike I stumbled across a seemingly long abandoned building. Peering through a window it revealed crumbling mosaics of a formerly sacred structure. One rabbit hops through inside jumps on a pew stops and looks at me. Almost as if waiting for me to speak. It continues back in to the shadows. A raccoon family comes through does nearly the same. I scratch my head and continue. Looking, searching, peeking about and touching nothing with respect or fear of disturbing the sacred. Who knows? Some things seem best left alone. Like those honeybees gathering nectar. Going here and there through cracks in the front door hanging by rust dust cobwebs and time. I follow them just to the door, confident they see no harm in me. Peeking through, I see light dancing on a statue of Mary joined by crow on her bowed head. Cobwebs strung between her hands she seems almost feral. Satisfied with what I’ve seen I continue on my walk in quiet and solitude, except for the occasional owl hoot and butterflies. I walk home to tell my family of a place so sacred, only Mary and the animals reside. I return with them and say “Be quiet respectful and do not touch. This place is sacred on the inside. Look and listen it will give you much. Take nothing and leave no trace behind.”

#3 – During a long hike, wandering off trail, I hope mother Gaia will answer my prayers to belong to a hidden sisterhood. I stumble upon a seemingly long abandoned house. Looks like faeries or a witch could live there so I’m going in! First, I knock a musical knock, sing hello and enter. I give the rabbit that hops up some clover, plantain and dandelion from my knapsack. I say “Gifts from our Gaia, gifts to you.” Immediately three more rabbits appear. All the same fluffy tan. Each with different ears. They approach and stop, as if waiting for me. I reach in my knapsack and feed the three. Immediately all four completely transformed. They say “You’re fearless, kind, generous and warm. This temple of Gaia has your reward.” The roots transform trees stand up and bloom. The witches say “Welcome home sister mother queen. Here is your room. Say and do what you please. The honey here is heavenly. You’ll learn to love the bees” The further that I enter with each step I ascend. Animals chatter and banter, transform into friends. So ever if you’re wandering and a dark house is what you find. Play a musical knock and sing hello. Who knows what you might find. Beware only of the threads of the mind.

Now wander, and be found.

Eka Hindu poetry

एक

हम 10 कमांडेंट्स की जरूरत नहीं है

बस इस एक सच्चाई

हम एक हैं कोई मतभेद हैं

एक मन एक शरीर एक आत्मा

एक जीवन एक ग्रह सिर्फ एक

तो यह मेरी दलील यह मेरा रोना है

आप समझ में नहीं आता, तो मैं आपको बता क्यों नहीं कर सकते

यह मेरे पैरों के नीचे जमीन है

आसमान में और मेरी आँख

मेरे साथ कोई नहीं है

आप अपने भाइयों और बहनों को देखते हैं और कहते हैं

अरे, फिर कैसे कर रही है? क्या आप ठीक हैं?

हम एक हैं याद रखें

हम सब कुछ की जरूरत है

केंद्र में सच्चाई की तरह

एक पहिया में सभी सेल की

आशा और प्रेम में घिरा

मैं ईमानदारी से हम एक हैं देखते हैं

काले सफेद भूरे रंग पीला और लाल

समलैंगिक सीधे समलैंगिक वर्ग

हम सब एक ही थाली से खा रहे हैं

और एक बिस्तर में सो रही है

हम डर के बजाय एक-दूसरे के बारे में सोचना

एक के रूप में एक दूसरे को स्वीकार करें

आप एक बीमार पिल्ला देखते हैं

या हमले पर एक भेड़िया पैक क्यों पीछे रहो?

आप हम एक स्थिति में हैं देख नहीं सकते

और एक के रूप में व्यवहार करते हैं?

दर्पण में हमें देखो और अपने आप को

सब कुछ एक है क्योंकि

अब हमारे बीच कोई डिवीजनों हो वहाँ जाने किसने कहा?

कोई भी एक साथ यहाँ कर रहे हैं

कोई बाड़ कोशिकाओं जेलों या दीवारों कर रहे हैं

उन्होंने कहा कि हम एक हैं एक भ्रम सब एक सपने हैं

मेरे साथ कोई नहीं है

आप एक परिप्रेक्ष्य के साथ एक व्यक्ति रहे हैं

एक और एक जीभ के साथ जन्मे

एक माँ से एक समय

सिर्फ एक

आप तो सच की तलाश है तो आप एक हैं

हम चाहते हैं कि हमारे सभी दुश्मनों को प्यार करता हूँ …

वैसे मैं वहाँ कोई नहीं होगा लगता था!

क्या आप एक हैं?

एक में कोई दुश्मन हैं

एक मन शरीर आत्मा जीवन ग्रह सिर्फ एक

हम एक ईसाई मुस्लिम कंजूस हैं

Animist मानवतावादी नास्तिक हिंदू

Wiccan बुतपरस्त ज़ेन बौद्ध भी

अज्ञेयवादी यहां मुझसे आगे हैं

आप सभी को पता था कि …। एक हो सकता है

हम एक हैं और क्योंकि यह यहाँ है

ज्ञान सच्चाई और ईमानदारी की मांग

समझौता स्वीकृति और क्षमा

ध्यान प्रार्थना और बहस

कौन सबसे अच्छा जवाब है?

कैसे निर्वाण प्राप्त करने के लिए?

मैं स्वर्ग में स्वीकार किया जाएगा?

हम वास्तव में प्यार लोगों से अलग होती है?

हम क्या बारे में बहस कर रहे हैं?

यह हम एक हैं जवाब है जो कुछ भी

केंद्र में एक सच पसंद

एक पहिया में सभी सेल की

आशा और प्रेम में घिरा

मैं ईमानदारी से हम एक हैं का मानना ​​है कि

उपदेशक और पापी एक

पुलिस लुटेरे न्यायाधीशों कैदियों को एक

व्यापारियों खून Crips hoes और दलाल नशेड़ी

एक

सैनिकों जनरलों राष्ट्रपति पोप एक

राजा रानी और शरणार्थियों

एक जीवन प्यार आशा सपना है और एक डर

अतीत वर्तमान भविष्य

यहाँ और अब एक है

उत्पीड़कों और शोषितों एक

अमीर और बेघर एक

यहूदी बस्ती हवेली इग्लू झोंपड़ी में

longhouse पेशाब टी

जहाँ भी वन पर है

मैं हमारे मंदिर हम है मेरे मंदिर हूँ

एक बस की तरह के रूप में हमारे घर पर होने दो

केंद्र में एक सच्चाई

एक पहिया में सभी सेल की

आशा और प्रेम में घिरा

मैं ईमानदारी से सच्चाई का मानना ​​है कि

हम सभी को इस कर रहे हैं

एक

“Uno” Spanish poetry

Standard

Uno

No necesitamos 10 mandamientos

Sólo esta verdad

No hay divisiones somos uno

Una mente un cuerpo de una sola alma

Una vida de un planeta sólo uno

Así que este es mi súplica Este es mi grito

Si usted no entiende que no puedo decir por qué

Es el suelo bajo mis pies

Y mi ojo en el cielo

Soy uno

Cuando ves a tus hermanos y hermanas y dices

Hola, ¿cómo estás? ¿Estás bien?

Recuerde que somos uno

Todos necesitamos algo

Al igual que la verdad en el centro

De todos los radios de una rueda

Rodeado en la esperanza y el amor

Sinceramente, veo que somos uno

Negro amarillo marrón blanco y rojo

Plaza raro recta

Todos nos estamos comiendo del mismo plato

Y dormir en una cama

Cuando pensamos en el uno al otro en lugar de miedo

Acepta el uno al otro como uno

Cuando ves a un cachorro enfermo

O una manada de lobos en el ataque por qué quedarse atrás?

¿No ves que estamos en una condición

Y se comportan como uno?

Míranos y usted mismo en el espejo

Porque todo es una

Ahora, ¿quién dijo que se haga no hay divisiones entre nosotros?

No hay ninguno aquí con uno

No hay vallas células prisiones o paredes

Son todo un sueño una ilusión que somos uno

Soy uno

Usted es una persona con una perspectiva

Nacido con una voluntad y una lengua

En un tiempo de una madre

Sólo una

Si usted busca la verdad, entonces usted es uno

Si a todos nos gusta que nuestros enemigos …

Bueno, yo diría que no habría ninguno!

¿Es usted uno?

No hay enemigos en una

Una mente planeta la vida del alma del cuerpo sólo una

Somos uno del Judio cristiano-musulmán

Animista humanista ateo hindú

Wiccan Pagan los budistas zen demasiado

Los agnósticos están por delante de mí aquí

Todos ustedes supieras …. podría ser uno

Y aquí es porque somos uno

Búsqueda de la verdad la sabiduría y honestidad

Entendimiento aceptación y el perdón

Orar meditar y debatir

¿Quién tiene la mejor respuesta?

Cómo alcanzar el nirvana?

¿Voy a ser aceptado en el cielo?

¿Realmente estamos separados por amar a la gente?

¿Qué estamos discutiendo?

Sea lo que sea, la respuesta es que somos uno

Al igual que una verdad en el centro

De todos los radios de una rueda

Rodeado en la esperanza y el amor

Sinceramente, creo que somos uno

Predicador y un pecador

Policías ladrones jueces presos uno

Distribuidores adictos Bloods Crips azadas y proxenetas

Uno

Soldados generales presidente papa uno

Reyes reinas y refugiados

Una vida amorosa esperanza sueño y un miedo

El pasado el presente el futuro

Justo aquí y ahora es uno

Los opresores y los oprimidos uno

El rico y el hogar

En el gueto de la mansión del iglú de la choza

El tee pee la casa comunal

Dondequiera que uno esté en

Yo soy mi templo nuestro templo somos nosotros

Seamos en el país como uno igual

Una verdad en el centro

De todos los radios de una rueda

Rodeado en la esperanza y el amor

Sinceramente, creo que la verdad es

Todos somos este

Uno
