que deja la lluvia
from the awning
que me moja
spread on the sidewalk
que queda los pulsos
rising from the cup
waiting for you
hasta que llega...
Learning is a bitch, aint it? Never stops, if you're paying any attention at all. My friend Jorge said to me: "You have to let everyone follow their own path, especially yourself." Not unlike, who-is-it...Sam Keen?..."Follow your bliss!" To sacrifice any of your dream, in order to give someone else what they want, is not sustainable.
My dream is sustainability...not just of spiritual self, but of corporeal self: sustainable agriculture, sustainable energy systems, sustainable home and hearth, starting with myself directly...really to shovel my own sh*t...all of it.
I'm looking for a partner in that project, someone who is ready to take on the burden of their own existence, not to farm it out to corporations or governments, not to pile it, along with seven billion others, on the systematic extraction of non-renewable resources.
Just to be clear, this project will require hard work...I mean, actual physical exertion, sweating even, getting dirty... I can understand if you are not up for that. But that is where I'm going, and if you're not ready to go there, why would we be going together?
Be present, enact compassion.
As you do unto others, so you do unto yourself.
