Loved and Lost…

Is it really better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all?

is-it-better-to-have-loved-and-lost-a-poem-by-pookyFor when that moment comes when everything that was so real just a moment ago is ripped away from your heart and you are left feeling cold and alone… in that moment… You know what it means to suffer. You know what it means to hurt.

In that moment is where you feel the depth of where emotions can take you. The feeling of wanting to throw a chair through a window, or tear down a telephone pole and smash it against things. That feeling of wanting to crawl in bed and never come out, because an important part of your world was connected to the one that you loved, and now that they are not there… an empty space remains.

And the forest burns.

Sometimes, the forest has been dead for a very long time… and it’s burning simply the required action in beginning anew.

In that moment, as the forest burns, or as you stand at the edge of the field of empty, gray ash… in that moment you ask the question… did it really have to be this way?

Could it have gone differently?

Is there anything we can do that can bring it back to the way it was?

Is it really better to have loved and lost… than to have never loved at all?

 

It is only when the new seedlings begin to sprout up that you begin to relax. That empty feeling begins to vanish in place of a new-found love for what now emerges as the next thing. The next love, the one that rises from the ashes NEWSEEDSof what lay before. New understandings, new friendships, new abilities…

Maybe part of the forest remains, and simply needs continued nurturing to grow. In taking up that task that phrase begins to make sense… It really is better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all… The love was important.

Losing it was just as important, there is something more to learn. Something more to see. Did it have to be that way? Maybe not, but since it did, lets take what we learned from it, and turn it into something new.

That’s how we learn. That’s how we grow.

I love you,

Now onto the next thing.

The Time for Separate Movements has Passed

VesicaPiscisAll of my blogs are inspired by something. Something I read, a conversation I had, a video I watched, something someone did, or often said. It’s a Vesica Pisces, which I wrote about in this blog. 

Todays blog is a combination of several of these things. You see, i recently watched a video on Youtube of a Q&A with a man I have grand respect for, talking about the shift in consciousness that we’re experiencing on this planet. I don’t want to say who it is, for i’m not sure that’s important.

What is important that what he said was basically that the shift is going to happen sometime in the next few years, and we pretty much just gotta wait for it, and if nothing happens, then all of the mayans and prophecies are wrong.

As I was sitting there, listening to that… It got me thinking… I need to write a blog about this.

I know, I used to say the exact same thing, and as i’ve been growing over the past year, my understanding of it has changed quite a bit. Yes, I do believe we’re in a window of opportunity, and yes, I do believe that the world is going to change, but not because some grand mysterious force in the universe said so… but because I said so, and You said so, and together, we both did something about it.
