Flow Writing

Exercise in flow writing is essential to become expert. I like to write for ten minutes ever morning, nonstop with as much flow as I can muster. The content is important. There is a good deal of style, punctuation and creativity. My form can vary from essay, story, and poetry. I am in a trance that embodies the art I wish to express regardless of the subject. I feel each word like a meditative walker feels each step. I am captivated by flow, the gratefulness for each word to be pressed to paper through my pen or typing of text.

At present the physical act of writing is supported by the mental energy also present in my bundled feelings. I am experiencing the love of craft, idea and song. My voice is full of wonder and excitement. I step forward on a road I mean to travel. I am confident in my manner, simple in my approach and determined to do good work.

Going for flow is a confluence of love, joy, peace, gentleness, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self-control and patience. This bundle of virtue can bare all pain, all sorrow and heal all wounds. There is no hesitation in this presentation of ideas. Yet, the silence, stillness and calm brings more to the experience of embracing my art.

Lastly, I am further into the process than when I started to put pen to paper. I am drifting with a rhythm of words, ideas and belief. I can see my destination. As I arrive at this juncture, the end is more like a pause than a pulse. I am able to revise, rewrite or record. My work in progress is assembled for reading and contemplation.

Meditating Away Cravings

My most difficult meal is supper.

I believe I crave food at this time.

Therefore, I am now meditating for 30 minutes before I eat any food.

My belief is that bringing meditation to any craving will reduce and eventually eliminate said craving.

Life Isn’t Too Complicated, I Am

The pain of my life is hard to define.

One day it is a combination of new ideas, old information and people.

The next it is my take on working out my problems with people places and things.

In today’s fast paced environment, I am loosing my ability to change and adapt.

I’ve listened to the minimalist, the spiritual guru and the rest.

I am doing good with my factors: aging, disease and overall health.

I am working on work, exercise and good orderly direction.

I am still trying to accept whomever or whatever.

I can’t always be on top of it all.

There will always be some ups and downs.

Space, Sound Sensation

Walking by a grove of trees,

A gentle breeze, moving limbs to and from,

Freshness abounds, after a summer’s shower,

Synchronized parts connecting with nature,

Meaningful coincidence breaks the Day louche,

Managing pain, learning to pass by, let go, move on…

Harlan Ellison

Master SF writer is being remembered and respected for the work he did over his lifetime.

Many believe his character reflected his own ‘angry young man’.

If so, perhaps the torch will be passed to another in society to befriend that segment of the population.

He wrote about diverse subject matter and never tired from using his talents in screen writing and articles.

A great work that will continue to be read and watched by many.

External Authority

I think about failure and success when I evaluate power and authority.

To do this effectively with Authority is an exercise in honesty to oneself.

No one wants to admit their failure in growing up, school, sports, relationships.

As adults we use external authority in society to follow commands or orders.

As adults we all follow orders, question orders and stand up to external authority when we are resolving disputes.

How is that working for you?

We all make mistakes and some haunt us for a very long time.

We are restructuring External Authority from the inside out.

A few important changes are happening in our society with the humanities: women, race, L.G.B.T.,Patriarchal Authority, Climate Change, Globalization and more…

It is time to think about external authority, especially our knowledge, understanding, and use/experience in our society today.
