The Harvest of Love

The God of my heart is great.  In him, there is much love, much light.
The one who has family, has friends, and God in his heart has much.
For that one may be poor in material things, but he is rich in love.
So rich that he cannot stand to keep it to himself.
For how could one who had an abundance of wheat, far more than he could ever use, keep it to himself?
How could he stand to simply sit and watch it rot away, when there are so many about him hungry for it?
No, I say to you, when a hungry man comes to that one’s door, he will be fed.
For one with so much love cannot keep it to himself.
The same is true of the God of my heart, and the God of all hearts.
His love, his grace, his peace are so abudant, he cannot possibly keep it to himself.
So many walk with eyes closed, with mind shut, with hearts of stone.
Yet when these barriers are gone, so great is the harvest within them.
Remember, my brothers and sisters, that without the light of love in your heart, nothing will bloom.
And once such an abudance does bloom within your heart, remember then to let others in, lest that wondrous harvest be wasted.
For the greatest food the world can offer, the one that fills body, heart, and soul, that is love.
Nurture it, grow it, share it.
For it is the greatest gift of them all.

“Out of Darkness”

“From within the darkness, I heard your call. But a whisper at first, growing, little by little, like ripples in this cloak of shadows. Drawn by its serenity, its beauty, I followed it blindly until, in the cold blackness, I found it. That one shimmer of warmth, one glimpse of light, one ray of comfort that was your heart.”

“To the night without stars, the trees without leaves, the eyes without glow, as my life was before and after I met you. In this world of darkness, you were my hope, my courage, my radiant light. Without you, I only wander in shadow, alone.”

“The sound of Love”

“Love is a sound that is soft and easily muffled by the noise of the heart, but when you listen closely, carefully, you can hear it ring true and clear throughout the ages.”

“Friendship is the melody of the heart, Love is the symphony of the soul.”

“Heart of Darkness, Soul of Light.”

“All hearts beat, but mine beats to my own rhythm.”

Sight Teaser#1

 “Only he whose eyes have beheld the horror of Pandemonium shall understand the pain one must endure to turn dreams into reality.”

“He whose eyes conquer the terror of Pandemonium shall see what light and dark lurk in the hearts of men.”

Tapestry of Words

“A good story is like weaving a fine garment:  each thread must be put together smoothly and tightly to create something that is not only beautiful, but heartwarming.”

Drops of Truth

“What is the life of a mute bird, only to sing on the day it dies?  Is it a blessing?  Is it a curse?  Is it’s whole life meaningless for what happens on that final day?  Or was its years of sadness merely a culmination of blood and tears to mark its passing with one glorious, triumphant song?” 

When one man’s reality is but one facet of the gem that is truth, what is real?  What is fake?  What will last, and what will fade?  For we, who are so caught in the flow of time, ever to comprehend, let alone truly embrace, that which is true?  If truly merely exists in the eye of the beholder, then is there really but one truth?  Or is there no solidarity to that which is ‘truth’, and it is merely what me make it to be?  Does anything truly last?  Are all things meant to fade?  Are our accomplishments merely a mound of sand, made to be whisked away in the withering winds of time?  Or is it that each of us build but a single stone of that which is humanity, and as we each pass, that stone remains, for those that come after us to build upon, slowly but surely, until from that one stone rises a mighty temple, never to erode, never to wither, never to fade.  Perhaps then, when we have moved beyond this stream of time, we shall see how the single ripple of our droplet of life will have effected so much, and changed so many for the good, and for the bad.  And when we realize this, can a life truly be for naught?  If a life affects but one other, does this other life not in turn affect others?  Does not the ripple from one in turn enhance the next, slowly moulding, bit by bit, a wave of change that affects all that flow within that stream?  In our simple, clouded lives, where we can see naught but that which lies before us, can we truly understand the implications of our choices?  Can we truly grasp the finality of our decisions, how they will affect us, and how they will affect others? 

If you remember nothing else, remember this:  Your life is truly but a drop in the Ocean of Stars, nothing more, nothing less.  But it is you that will choose how that drop shall fall.  Will it fall on the cold ground, splashing loudly, but affecting nothing?  Or will it fall into the depths of the sea, softly, where that quiet pulse will travel to the farthest corners of creation, gently flowing over all things, shifting them, and changing them?  One day, the rain shall come for us all, and we each will have to choose our path.  Believe in yourself, and craft your own destiny.  Don’t fear fate.

“Language”

“Fists are the language of the fighter,
Persuasion is the language of the clever,
Intellgence is the language of the mindful,
Wisdom is the language of experience,
Love is the language of the heart,
Music is the language of the soul,
Noise is the language of creation,
Silence is the language of destruction,
Truth is the language of heaven.”

outlook.”

“We cannot just forget our pasts, no matter how much we would want to. It is…the basis of which we were formed, and makes up a part of ourselves. But remember this: the past is the past. It has happened, and can never be changed, however, our future is never chained to the weight of what happened in the past. No matter what has happened, the future is always open. And if you think about it that way…the worst parts of our past can be, instead of what haunts us, it can be something that has happened, that we will never let happen again, to anyone. Thinking this way, the future can only become brighter, and full of happiness for
everyone.”
