We can speak without voice to the trees and
the clouds and the waves of the sea.
Without words, they respond through the rustling of leaves and
the moving of clouds and the murmuring of the sea.

People demand freedom of speech
as a compensation
for the freedom of thought
which they seldom use.

Poolside

sun and blue sky
sunscreen and music
seaweed hat and hot tub
birthday 77 — thankful
more sunscreen
alone, why
existential moment
searching for clarity
becoming entangled
more sunscreen
music plays on
time present
time past
now, conditions
timeless moments
caught in limitation
being and un-being
feeling easy
cause for wonder
sudden shift in
sunlight

Each day I try to develop myself beyond the conventional level of existence. I transcend the light of being through threads of space and time allowing me to see truth in different reflections. Most people adopt on view for the sake of security. I prefer to use all views than to maintain artificial boundaries to have one view. By utilizing all views, I can know the truth in much the same way I come to know a butterfly, a wildflower. To do otherwise is to limit oneself to what is always true.

As I shift a point of view, I have the freedom to transcend any actuality which I may encounter. By doing so, I’m able to accept the freedom and responsibility of being human and become more authentic in my expression, therefore better able to actualize my existence. By being flexible in my point of view, I’m better able to include as much of reality as possible.

Existence — Video by kenne

“The thing about Native American music
that a lot of people don’t understand
is the fact that it’s held in
such high regard for their culture…
while we live in a society where music
is something that involves a lot of technology,
they’re able to create something so significant in
our world with very little materials.”

— R. Carlos Nakai

Generosity is nothing else than a craze to possess.
All which I abandon, all which I give,
I enjoy in a higher manner through the fact that I give it away.
To give is to enjoy possessively the object which one gives.

— Jean-Paul Sartre
