Would you follow me down the rabbit hole? 🕳🐇 🙃

Take a breath and hold it in deep. Don’t let it out not even a peep. Now invision yourself spiraling amongst the stars, weaving between the galaxies. Around planets and suns, between asteroids and moons, over sand dunes and beside ice mountains. Through a vast amount of darkness but with more light than your eyes can capture. Leaving you to explore the microscopic, the cellular tropics, becoming the microorganism of earths optics. Leaving your body behind and letting your soul be free to explore the infinity. Exhale.

Be witness to the soul encapsulated inside  of your human body. Perceive the sun casting the body’s shadow upon the Earth’s surface. Notice the cold rain falling upon its hot skin. The breeze tickling your internal senses within. Realize that everything you see with your eyes eventually dies. Understand that your inner voice derives from a place very external, like a radar catching a signal. That body, this mind, the heart all play a part in receiving your consciousness, that voice, that feeling, forever revealing the secrets of living. 🌏🌎🌞

No interest in what has happened, or what was where, who said this or saw that, why it didn’t or won’t, when it wasn’t, all of those visions are just a speck of retrospect, leaving us stuck in the past tense. The past is an artificial being that hibernates within your subconscious, when it awakens it starts feeding off of your psyche, soon your mind only thinks thoughts in a backward fashion. Haves no interest in the supposed tomorrow, the expectation of the future, whats going to be, an what is to come. Only interested in what is right now, the show me how, the teach me this, the subtleness of the present tense, this hour, this minute, this second, the today, because today is always today and right now will always be right now. .

Feeling like a mime stuck in the wrong time, no words to relay, no thoughts to display, nothing to say that can be heard in a day. Like speaking an alien language with no translator, unable to decipher. Minds volume on maximum but when I speak I’m on mute. Screaming at a brick wall, what did you say I can’t recall. Lost in translation the delicate understanding of relation. Waterfall sounds over whispers, at a concert with no listeners, a book with no letters, a letter with no ink, like a messenger bird with no feathers and a thought with no think. 😶🤐🤭

Alone we feel. Surrounded by humans we are. No difference between me and we. As if we’re leading the blind and the deaf, say go right but they go left. Eyes covered with lenses, ears clogged with earphones, nose sniffing ‘medicine’, hair stripped of color and lathered in gel, hands covered in cloth, feet wrapped in rubber, body hidden from site, minds trapped in societies fictional maze, when will they discover the light?

The words our mind views on a day to day, they only seem to lead astray. Always neatly ordered in little rows, for us to pick upon like crows. Never leading you far from the path, finding how to learn things like math. Listing the ingredients of your indulgence, insulting all of our intelligence. The natural balance in artificial flavor, the value packed, double stacked, chemically enhanced, deep romance. That our legitimate, genuine plastic molded brain, would only love to entertain. Follow the one thing showing you it’s alive, the beating stampeding heart. It speaks much quieter than the screaming brain. #moss

Let me show you something, take a sat over here on this cliffside of green. Take in the scene with every sense, look out over the hues of blues. As they mix and bend from end to end, from sea to sky can you feel the high? Breath in the ocean air that blows between your hair. Listen to the breeze whispering through the trees. . Feel the earth beneath your soul, contemplate this meditation let go of the ego and be free into infinity.

The slow trail of steam that creeps into my brain from the melting pool of sorrow. Stealing all my hope for today from the hope for tomorrow. Leaving me caught in this rotation of destruction and creation. Inside myself brews the pot of tea that allows me to see clearly. I let it steep for years as I digest its presence, unwrapping all of the presents. As the healing takes me over, the feeling makes me older. As my thoughts tell me lots, my instincts tie in knots. Drowning my ability to think with the idea to feel, allowing my brain to rest and body to heal.

View of Kolekole pass from deep up Mauka in Wahiawa. This island looks more like a living creature everyday I walk upon her.

The human being is forgetting it's beginning. That we are animals that need this planet, interconnected to the earth like the trees to the soil and the bees to the trees. No longer using our eyes to see but only to look. Only listening to what could be heard, not listening to what can be learned. Getting plastic noses and not waking up to smell the roses. Speaking meaningless words, instead of speaking the whole truth. Our instinct to feel is being clouded by our instinct to show. Using our bodies as a visual pleasure, instead of honing our skills for a new endeavor.  #createyourownquotes #onmymind #ispythemoon #poem
