Oh, Time is short and the days are sweet and passion rules the arrow that flies,
A million faces at my feet but all I see are dark eyes …
- Bobby D
<One of THOSE days today it seems .. jeez…>
Your blond hair
is the way I live –
smashed by light !
is the birthmark
on my power.
To love you
is to live
my ideal diary
which I have
promised my body
I will never write !
- Leonard Cohen From ‘Flowers for Hitler’
‘On Up the Mountain’
Soon morning comes
To warm the world and wake you up
Night is gone awful fast
It ain’t wrong to be sad
There’s a light making its way
On up the mountain night and day
You’ll go down and you’ll go deep
But you won’t surrender your masterpiece
- Jakob Dylan
“Your health is bound to be affected if, day after day, you say the opposite of what you feel, if you grovel before what you dislike… Our nervous system isn’t just fiction, it’s part of our physical body, and it can’t be forever violated with impunity.”
- Boris Pasternak
What if you let go of every bit of control and every urge that you have, right down to the most infinitesimal urge to control anything, anywhere, including anything that may be happening with you at this moment? If you were able to give up control absolutely, totally, and completely, then you would be a spiritually free being.
