HONESTY OF THE UNKNOWN

The true spiritual path is tough
At some point you may find yourself drowning
In an ocean of delusion
Games coming undone, unraveling
Beliefs that seemed so real
Shaking at their foundations
All this can feel overwhelming

Friend, learn to breathe under water
This drowning is the divine calling you
Inviting you to let it all go
And stay in the honesty of the unknown

Be softly still
And let what needs to fall, fall
There is no other way.

I AM LEAVING WORDPRESS

This is it
I am leaving wordpress after 5 years of poetry

It has been wonderful
But enough is enough

If you want to stay in touch and follow my poetry
You can find me on substack
https://kavijezziehockaday.substack.com

My subscription will run until the end of this month and then expire.

Thank you so much for following me, liking my poems and paying some attention.
The poetry is not stopping, only my chosen and preferred platform.
I still do all my poetry free and substack is no different.

So if you fancy continuing the journey jump on.
Otherwise be well and be blessed.

FALL INTO SKY NATURE

The tangled web we weave
Entangling ourselves and each other
In the stickiness
Like a glue that wants to harden
And solidify into something fixed

All this entangling must come undone
Sometimes in one fell swoop
Often as a gradual erosion

The inherited and conditioned patterns
Woven into us unconsciously
Parents, religion, morality
All the ancestral wounds
Playing themselves out in each of us

All this must cease being the driver
Of our urges, our habits and our addictions

This is a call to become naked and innocent
To fall into the unknowing-ness prior to personality

It is no small call, not for the feint of heart
It is a warriors challenge, for it takes great courage
To take everything off
To remove the veils
To open Pandora’s box
To meet the ghosts
To face any and all demons
Not from a place of war
But from the deepest peace and openness
As the sky accepts the tumult of the storm.

FORM AND FORMLESS

You are eternal and unchanging
A universe in which manifestation occurs

You are also manifestation occurring
Temporary and forever changing

Finding a way of living these two truths
Is the ultimate dance of form and formless

The sky and the clouds may appear different
Yet are all one thing.

FIND YOUR ROOTS

When strong emotions arise
Welcome them with open arms

When life deals you a bad hand
Don’t take it personally

If a storm approaches
Remember the sky
In which it comes

The tree without roots
Will collapse in the slightest breeze

Find what roots you
In the ground of your being
And no wind will fell you

There is a secret power
Found in the deepest relaxation
Nature already knows this
But we have forgotten
Remember this
When the storm comes.

A QUANTUM LEAP

When an individual cell
In the collective body
Becomes fully realized
To its own nature
As unified goodness
Something remarkable transforms
In the quantum field
And that goodness
Becomes entangled
With the innate goodness
In other individual cells

When a community of cells
in the collective body
Becomes fully realized
To its own nature
As unified goodness
A quantum evolutionary leap
May occur across the entire species

This is a remarkable moment
To explore your inner world
And discover your true nature

THE DANCE

When the compassionate heart is discovered
When the knowing of the deepest love is revealed
It changes everything
And you will never want to leave there again

And all the forgetting and getting lost
And the returning home
Will become a dance
Instead of a burden.

LIVE FROM INNER KNOWING


Discovering inner truth
Intuition and gut feeling
A deep instinct about things
And a wisdom that supports
That inner knowing

Is the only true authority we need
It is our connection to ourselves
To each other, to nature
And to God

Once discovered we must each find a way
To live from that deeply profound place
No matter what happens.

  • MY SONG OF GRIEF

    Sometimes I just get so sick of all this ridiculous bullshit
    I try and remember it’s all a leela, a play, a game
    And only consciousness is real
    And ignorance is the only real enemy
    (and not one to be fought with
    but to be transcended with awareness)

    But in truth I get weary
    Walking this world
    As it implodes
    And eats itself with division

    I discovered love to be the only worthy thing
    Worth standing for
    And I devoted my life, my service, my every breath to that

    I have not transcended the world
    I am not above it
    I feel it in every fibre of my being
    I feel it all, the suffering, the horror,
    The blindness, the blame, the malevolence
    The manipulation, the tyranny
    My how it hurts sometimes

    And all I can do is speak it,
    Say its name, in the pain of love
    I know I am not alone in this
    And maybe you feel the same sometimes

    There is no remedy
    And I’m not looking for positive words
    If we don’t speak the truth
    We are doomed
    This is my song of grieving.

    THE WARRIOR WALKS WITH A TENDER HEART

    As though it matters
    As though we matter
    As though everything we do
    And everything we say
    And everything we are
    Is some kind of prayer

    ‘May I be at one with nature
    May I be at one with all that is,
    Not above or below anything else,
    Walking harmoniously in the world.’
