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.

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.

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 Dancer and the Danced

We are being danced
Played and vibrated

We have given ourselves an identity
Given a name to the nameless we are

A dancing pattern of particles
Stardust gathered from the vast
Circling an imperceptible black hole, a void
At the center of our constellation

We are a universe, each one a world unto ourselves
Billions and billions of worlds
Colliding, interacting,
Drawing towards and repelling

For one moment, cease giving a name to yourself
Rest as the nameless one
Be the dance

In truth
You are the player and the played
The vibrator and the vibration itself
Mesmerizing astonishing truth

Don’t dumb yourself down
By imagining you are just a small someone
You are all that is
Eternity gathered up as a unique expression
What more do you want?

The Beloved Says…

The Beloved says…

Go forth into the realm of form
Be an emissary of the light

Seek to be unattached
Even as attachment
Wraps you in its arms
With its sweet and tempting offers

Seek to stay as love
Even as fear grabs you
By the neck
And breathing becomes labored

Seek mastery of desire
Even as the lure of comfort
And the veil of security
Draws you toward it

You will become lost in that place
And then, child of the light,
Remember to dance
Remember to laugh and sing
To grieve and cry in the devastation
To soak in the pouring rain
As it drenches your wounded heart

And let that remembering itself
Be the light that you carry
To share with others
Who have forgotten.

TURN OFF

At some point
You have to turn off
The internal and external narration
And see what remains

Turn off the news
Turn off the radio
Stop reading the latest reports
Of whatever agenda is current
And cease listening
To the constant babble
From the agitated mind

And see what remains
See how the organism
Quietens and softens
And begins to live
From a deeper
And more natural intelligence

It’s not ignorance
It’s sanity.

ENTRUSTED WITH THE SPARK

We have each been entrusted
With the divine spark of life

Love, compassion and joy
Are encoded into our dna

Yet we forget, beguiled by
Survivalism and conditioning
Mesmerized by desire and fear

And in our amnesia
We walk the earth
Searching for something
That makes us feel whole

We are already whole
And each of us
Has been entrusted
With the divine spark of life

Remembering this
Allows the spark
To become a fire.

FIND THE DIVINE WITHIN

Friend, I beseech you,
Search within, without cessation,
Let your deepest longing
Become your living truth
Seek that divine connection
That is your essence
Remember, remember, remember
Do not allow trauma, wounding, deceit,
Abuse, conditioning and dream spell
To isolate you any longer

It is our inherent nature
To be guided and held
By our direct connection to the divine
It IS our living truth

Forgotten or stolen
We walk as ghosts
Incomplete and bereft
Traumatized and helpless

But all it takes is a flash of illumination
And remembering begins
And we fall into right relationship
This is our true authority
And it is our sole purpose
To shine the light of our knowing
Onto the darkness of the world.

The Cliff Falls Into the Ocean

I don’t know how it happened
It just gradually happened
As if by itself
In its own time
Without me noticing
The switch
From the separating of things
To everything being included
And being fundamentally accepted
I don’t know how it happened
It wasn’t something I did
But eventually the separate self
Dissolved into unity

Maybe it was as inevitable
As the cliff that finally falls into the ocean
After countless years of erosion

It wasn’t a big bang
No trumpets or fanfare
Nothing grandiose
Just a simple shift
Almost imperceptible
And entirely natural
As though the final step
Was the smallest
As though the final breath
Was the ‘Ahhh,’ of the final release.
