Oh, this version created was somehow shaped within the stomach of thought

tapping into some innate magnificence, that is phenomenal…

always knowing, always hearing, but not always cultivating

the body holds this intelligence deep within some semblance of memories

The familiar beheld, thru my mother’s blood, sweat and tears

which puts the white-collar worker to shame….

digging a hole and planting desire, for some sense of autonomy

but the growth is cluttered with muscle of rubies and gold

ego cultivates a land where we grow, but perspectives nose-dive

into some endless ocean, where one tends to lose their sincerest soul

Falling, down, down, down…

drowning into some philosophical vacation, full of waves of great powers

and yet, right into a space where we’re supposed to be

designed specifically to a tune only for my eyes and ears

for the presence of our basic training…insightful and sincere

I remembered where I didn’t want to be….and all those darkest hours swelling

consuming honey from that swim, traveling through a certainty expedition

monochrome shadows were reaching out for me while I roamed

knowing life can only be understood by the darkness and it’s self-assurance

and from all it’s buoyancy can I see the most beautiful things

I held these reflections close

People assume understanding in their own unique ways, which they are privileged to do from their own center.
It's said that truth is simple...if it were complicated everyone would understand it.

Very nice indeed, love the title!

"always knowing, always hearing, but not always cultivating"

Hah, that's where I've always had the trouble, incurable dreamer and you've laid that out very well in this.......

You haven't lost your touch, LeeJ.  It's pretty much where I am at the moment but you said it so very, very, much better than I ever could.  Greatly enjoyed!

I have to be honest.  This is about seven universes beyond me with this one. If you look I'm that slimy thing still wiggling at the bottom of the primordial soup.

I enjoyed it.  I always do, your musings . . .
just don't ask me to write a paper on it: I'd use a whole ream!

... Funning a lot here, my friend . . . sometimes you're just way to deep for my addled mind.

as always . . .

hello all...thank you for stopping by and taking a looksie.  

Jimmy, I'm speaking of the time before I was born, while I was in my mother's womb.  Then being born, and DNA Memory or cell memory.  

And how we are all so specifically designed and different and how utterly miraculous it all is...this inner intellect that we all possess, and how we grow from all things, mentally, even the bad.  We are born so pure, so Godly...and than experience takes over....but still miraculous, and molded by the darkness, (bad experiences)) it is who we are...life assures us, we are, we were and will be forever more.

Hope this helps.
