Wooden Ships

The past and the future are intended to fix a moment, now, that can be used to unlock our secrets. The activities of the past determine the possible fates that then draw us forward. Now is the power of choice. We are charged with picking and choosing between the fates we have selected and positioned in the landscape that is our future. We steer our course drawn forward by these fates. We can change the landscape, that is time, giving redress to motive and unpinning the force associated with the past. Much of what we do, now, is with great force. That force broadcasts powerful images into our future. Expectations that are fates. A number of these fates are very powerful, strong enough to force the habits that make certain their fruition.

I have made a habit of unpinning the disastrous choices in my past and correcting the drift caused by their assorted fates. These corrections have now left me adrift looking for a new gravity to power how I am. It is a problem I have not faced before. The gravity of past and future mistakes is vacant and I am haunted only by their memories. It seems I have freed ‘now’ from many of the false constraints so common to being human. But what to do now? I hear the echos rattling around. Past attitudes like sirens calling my name. There is a certain combination, a key here that unlocks this secret. Will I get it right this time? Have I finally decided it is something I am willing to do? I hope so, otherwise it is wearing me out.

Closing The Circle

We build walls or close loops. I do not see any other options. The closed loop is the seat of power, it is where who we are is also how we are. In building the ring, or closing the loop, we surrender to our true self and the soul finds its temporal temple. This is the seat of power. It is our only appointment in life. To do this requires magic, just like everything else in life. When we use the magic, that is truth, the illusion falls away and there is no wall. Even the walls that others build become transparent and a certain equilibrium seeps through acquaintance.

There Is No Path. I Am Here Now

There is no path. There is only where I am. The path is illusory because it is an illusion. What would seem to be a path is gravity. We are collectors and we do so by our personal gravity, choice. As we collect we become more dense, less able to discern our true nature. We begin to see our self as what we have collected. We see our fellows by this same formula. While this real it muddles the truth and it is only true that it is real.

Is there another way? Yes. Using the metaphysics of spiritual truth we can release gravity and choose who we are over how we are. We are spiritual beings but gravity makes this difficult to see, to realize. Gravity forces us into a realm where our soul is a spectator. We invite our soul to be where we are by turning gravity off. When my spiritual interface is always that of approval, no matter what, gravity is switched off. This is a metaphysical switch. Spiritual truths and metaphysics are archetypal. For me I have to consider my personal archetypeture. I need to plan and design. I need to build this switch as well as the place it works. That is my mystic path. I am. I am here now.
