Believing is Seeing

Believing is seeing
Is not what we’re taught
So our lives then remain
Chained to reason
Through thought
If the chain you can break
Light will reign
Not the dark
In a world that is born
Not of mind
But of heart

To give your all to life says Will
Within you keeps yourself, more ever, still.

So battle not the wrinkles, but live life, make war with Time, that tyrant, for in doing so shall thy life be fulfilled..

it's that whole head heart thing that gets me

and you're right, when I look in the mirror I see an old woman now. . .

need to learn a thing or two from Ms Mel and work on my attitude

*goes off humming ALOTBSOL*

Mel said...

Right.

<---not battlin' the wrinkles

Balance, eh?

I'm thinkin' I'd rather tip the scales a bit--in favor of the heart.
Reason has its place.
But the heart--has no boundaries.

LOL.....thinkin' I think too much.

Everywhere are circles, and you must use them so, to get where you are going, against or with, the flow

that makes so much sense, thank you, go with or against the flow to get where you need to go. . .

or, I guess, just hop out of the water for a little while and admire the view

(can I go with my heart for a little while, even tho my head doesn't understand it?)

Heart - v - Head

We can only find out ourselves I think

it's so hard

but then, if you let go everything and have nothing. . .

. . .you actually have something really special, without even having to hold on to anything

it's the letting go my head struggles with, even tho that would be more peaceful for my heart

I,s,ltv,
Yes, this is a difficult one isn't it, but when I wrote this I didn't envisage letting go of anything.

In fact I saw it more as a way of understanding that sometimes "Believing" is more enduring than "Reality".

And, that knowing that helps me to deal with the "reality".

Does that make sense?

Sincerely

Egal..
