Aquarius

My body is the home of violent emotions
Some of which I don’t understand
I ignore them and suppress them
But I’m not able to withstand.

Searching for the brightest light
Softly beaming in the darkest corner
I spot it and laugh out loud
But when I open my eyes, I feel the void.

Scary is to not know
Fear is to doubt
Will the void get out of control?
Is the promise land a hoax?

No way
I hit the breaks and I come home
The void is just a game I play
I know that. I feel that. It’s okay.

No hard feelings
Lies; of course there are
Darkness is full of them
Hidden in the birds, in the trees and in the sea.

I meditate and I sink
And slowly, I let myself be pulled back
I’m not speeding up the journey
Where to, if what I need is to get back to the start?

So I let darkness kiss my cheek
My eyes, my heart, and my feet
I invite it to sit with me
And let is show me what I need to see

Mari Quotes

All problems are mind problems. Call it what you want: Attention disorder, depression, anxiety, fear. Training the mind is the only permanent solution. If you don’t, what you’ll end up with is a mind problem with no name.

Forget it.

What if the things you remember aren’t real?

When you feel the sunset kissing the outline of your face you’re not remembering: you’re experiencing, feeling the warmth awakening your heart. Any thought hoping for or remembering this moment isn’t real. It’s only your imagination, your contaminated interpretation of now. Think about this – but only for a brief second – because as soon as you do, the moment is gone. Reality is right here: in the place where there are no thoughts, no words, no hopes, no knowledge of what happened to you or predictions of what will. You are everything right now. The most important person in your life. Know that. Feel that. Now forget that.
