Sleep

sleep,sweet sleep,
giant comforter,
abode of creation,
moments at God’s place.
the beautiful Healer that whispers.
dreams in our hearts
charming our senses away
to the Other worlds

humanity resting on the,
Strength  of this unnamed savior,
Until the divine light
merges the day and night,
and takes us to the higher realm,
Where bonds of  life,
silently break.

Oswald

oswald

Whenever I had watched the Oswald tv cartoon series I used to feel the fragmentation of attention taking place in the positive sense – moving from the chaos to a place of complete understanding and absolute clarity. The colors the speech and the pace just completely went inside my attention. It was like living in a perfection. That made me curious about the person who had worked on this series – what really inspired him and triggered this which had strong undercurrents of healing energy inside it – should be someone in a completely different world altogether… on reading one of his interviews I found what I had suspected all along ;). Excerpts from his interview:

Q:What sound or noise do you love?

Dan: When I’m up in my studio and hear my kids coming home from school. I always come downstairs for hugs and an afternoon snack. Seeing their father when they get home from school is probably not a big deal for them (because it’s the way it’s always been), but I know lots of kids who don’t get to see their parents until well after they’ve eaten dinner. I’m very fortunate to see my children as much as I do and sometimes want them to stay the age they are right now forever, but—as usual—they disobey me and get bigger all the time.

Q: What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Dan: None. Not only would I be totally incapable of doing anything other than exactly what I do, but I really have absolutely no interest in anything else. I know it sounds kind of crazy, but that’s the truth.

Q: Do you listen to music while you create books?
Dan: Yes! I listen to music when I paint, much to the dismay of my family, because I’ll listen to the same artist or CD over and over for months. I’m a huge fan of Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys. I also listen to The Polyphonic Spree, probably for the same reason; it’s really joyful, uplifting, and spiritual music. Painting is meditation for me. It calms me down.
It’s also great for me because, unlike producing a TV series or working on a feature film, it’s only me.

And beyond

So when one is on the path of self correction, one path can be to observe what one is doing all the time.After introspection note down reactions and behaviors that were inconsistent and suggest solutions for them.One of the walls that one hits – doing the above activity is that the facts that sum up do not provide the complete picture. Or to put it in other words, the words are distanced from the implementation by a vast degree.The reality, is greater than the sum of the factual parts.So that implies the medium of conveying the information is incomplete. Which in turn, implies, that there does exist another medium that can hold the definition of moment in itself?. Probably, Abstractions (like paintings etc.) are pointers to that incompleteness being expressed and come closer to it.

The point is – our daily activities revolve around the same sensory perceptions in combination with our patterned reactions matrix existing. To get out of this flux, energy needs to be absorbed by our senses/brain?/enlightenment – so that this reaction pattern stops and we move to higher realms. Self correction through introspection has its limits. It is when these limits are discovered that one surrenders and moves towards knowing the higher identity of existence.
