It is the year 2008..
and what seems like the end of the line for me…
In this life there are some experiences that are beyond experience…
darkness that has never been felt before…
feeling that loss..
CAN BE LOST…
No one told me when i came into this world of the
dimensions of darkness that WERE COMING AVAILABLE
AND NO ONE TOLD ME ABOUT THE DIMENSIONS
WILL TRULY FIND
YEAR STINT IN LITERAL
i have so
MUCH TO BE THANKFUL FOR
AND ALL THE SPECIAL FEATURES OF GOD..
TRUTH IN MY LIFE
MAKES EVERY SECOND OF THE PAIN OF THE PAST
AND OH HOW
i hope i can help one person
AVOID WHAT CAN BE
LITERAL HUMAN HELL..
YES IT CAN BE AVOIDED FOR THOSE
UNDERSTAND THEIR BASIC ANIMAL HUMAN NATURE..
ever needed to know
HUMAN NATURE PACKAGE
CULTURE THAT TOOK ME AWAY FROM WHAT
i knew as truth
AS NATURE’S HOME
BEFORE i could SPEAK
knew what FREE WAS
MOTHER NATURE TRUE
TO MOVE LIKE A GALAXY
OR A TIGER
TO LIVE WITH PRO-SOCIAL EMOTIONS
RIDDING ONE OF ALL
TO LIVE AS GOD MAKES US INNATELY
LOVING HUMAN BEING..
PER THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE OF SOCIAL ANIMALS
SHARE AND COOPERATE
IS WHAT i am thankful for TODAY THE MOST..
MORE THAN ANY OTHER TIME OF MY LIFE..
AND WITH ALL THAT SAID..
AS A TEMPLE OF GOD
LIVING IT HEALTHY
THE ONLY REAL GIFT
THIS POST IS DEDICATED TO ALL THE OLD FRIENDS
ONLINE AND OFF..
FROM MY 35th
RAVE DANCE CELEBRATION
OLE SEVILLE QUARTER PENSACOLA FL..
glad you found your freedom from that hell my friend…
i am a bit envious of your sun….reminds we of when i lived in florida
and it was sunny even at christmas….a bit cold here…ha…but bearable
have fun at your rave dance tonight….
Well.. i tend to make it look.. perhaps.. a little warmer than it is.. by my mode of dress..;)
It’s in the mid-fifties today.. and will be close to freezing by the time i arrive to Rave Dancing dressed in my Turkey day T-shirt and shorts attire.. but inside the sweat will be soaking as usual after 3 hours or so.. and that 33 or so degree weather will be one refreshing breeze of cool by the time i leave..
Happy T-Day to you too.. Brian.. good to see ya back.. once again..:)too..!
living with PRO-SOCIAL EMOTIONS….i like… there’s a lot to be thankful for… and having such beautiful sunshine on top of it… very nice… the weather is not yet too cold over here… cloudy though and i’m waiting for the first snow…
Yes.. a little cool.. but the sunshine is a wonderful place to be on Thanks Giving day.. and in Florida.. it truly can be Summer almost anytime of the year..
where sunshine warms the coldest of hearts..:)
And we did get one spell of snow and icy roads last year.. and who knows we too may have a taste of snow again.. once all of Winter is done before Spring..:)
Happy Thanksgiving Claudia and thanks for stopping by..:)
Yes .. to come out of the darkness of living hell.. Then there truly has to things to be thankful for… wonderfully happy .. and I so love the sunny cat.. 🙂
Oh Yes.. it certainly is Bjorn.. and not a now goes by that i do not appreciate all the blessings i do receive.. to every breath of air.. as well.. as they were harsh to take.. for several long years….
And my Sunny Cat does shine his golden fur.. particularly when the dry cold of November.. December.. and through March does come….
We had a few cloudy days.. and he is always so excited to get out on the patio and soak up some rays when his favorite SUN comes out to play..:)
yes.. one and only for him.. and me as well..:)
Happy Thanksgiving Bjorn..:)
last week it was in the 20’s in Florida; quite the extremes of weather; the citrus grove do not like frost, for sure. Again, your brevity is commendable, for you are still saying much without eclipsing 1000 words +; but whatever route your passion takes in sharing your words & emotions is fine with us, who travel with the dVerse dogs, a creative pack of poets.
dVerse has made me quite at home.. as there are similar minds here to mine.. that often i do not find.. in my small little red state town in North Florida..for sure…:)
And yes.. keeping under that 1000 word limit as much as possible is a goal of mine i continue..TO MIND..:)
as there is always another day.. for more detail
and another topic to write about..
Infinitely out into space of imagiNATION!..:)
HAPPY THANKSGIVING.. GLEN TO YOU AND YOURS!..:)
I like the idea that if you help just one person it will be a good thing. That is a great philosophy, I think, and if we all practiced it what a beautiful world it would be! Happy Thanksgiving to you.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you as well Mary.. and that’s what i try to do.. focus on Love and one person at a time.. as each relationship is another Universe unto itSELVES..:)
AND YES LOVE IS A PRACTICE THAT CAN ALWAYS HOME IN ON MORE..:)
IN A BEAUTIFUL HOME OF LOVE..:)
I am glad you are no longer going through hell, so much so that you now feel grateful and wish to help others. Enjoy Rave Dancing!
Thanks for the nice thoughts Gabriella and it is so much better to give than receive when one can do it.. and i will dance on tonight with that thought in fleet of foot..:)
Happy Thanksgiving again..:)
Glad you were able to escape your hell, and good for you for wanting to use your experiences to help someone else escape living hell.
Thanks for the kind thoughts Bryan.. it is truly nice to be able to help others finding paths to get over hardships in life.. as there is always a way to light eventually in my opinion.. if one never gives up…:)
Happy Thanksgiving.. to you and yours again..:)
It is a noble occupation to extend a helping hand. It is normally difficult for most people to get involved.One persists for the passion to render help not realizing or wanting to give less! Great pics and great lines Katie!
Yes.. Hank the PASSION to render help and TRULY WANTING to give one’s all is what i consider Unconditional Love where one looks farther than one’s significant other and family and sees all peoples as one family of unity ALWAYS worthy of lending a hand too.. where there is truly the agape type of love for some…where this passion truly is the EMOTION OF UNIVERSAL LOVE THAT POWERS THIS ACTION of AN EXTENDED HAND AS WELL..:)
HOPE you had a GREAT Thanksgiving Hank and thanks for stopping by..:)
Have a great party. Give your ginger kitty a kiss from me:)
Thank you Tigerbrite and i do like your Tiger too..:)
Life is one big dance party to me.. and i continue to find dance partners wherever i go.. whether it is Rave Dance Halls or on board walks spiraling around the gulf under Interstate Overpasses with the homeless who give each other the company of love..:) in the one true dance of Unconditional Love..:)
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and while my wife is doing her Black Friday shopping i will be dancing.. weaving my way through shoppers and perhaps someone will
take a break from shopping and dance with me..too…:)
But more than likely it will probably be another video or two or more;) of me on Facebook.. as where i live there are very few people who dare to dance in public.. and kind of sad where dancing is the enigma instead of practice of life.. with others.. that our ancestors so freely shared as a way of life together connecting so freely and
so well..in Unconditional Love..:)
Words inspired by my friend Rafiah who lives in Pakistan..:)
Ah.. the first comment must not have liked the link to a photo of a tree i provided for illustration but i will try again without the link.. and perhaps the words will come out a little different.. and stay..;)
Back in 2003 i had this lovely Oak Tree with limbs and leaves that reached out far into the sky of Allah.. and then a Hurricane named Ivan came and took my beautiful Tree away leaving only a dinosaur like broken skeleton.. that had to be taken away only to leave a stump and eventual twig that remained as memory of my beloved tree….
But with adversity can come great diversity.. As the twig grew into my beloved tree again.. and i let it grow free with friends of Blue Berry Bushes.. Small Privet trees.. Flowered Vines growing up into the branches sharing air with leaves in sky of Allah free…. and Ivy growing down toward the ground and spreading out through the ground of Allah as well…
Yes.. the tree grows wider now instead of taller with all the TREE’S friends and provides a privacy in my backyard that allows me to dance totally free with Allah connecting to ALL my flesh and blood as One force of me and Allah…free…:)
And this is how it works with us humans as metaphor too.. As when we reach out to others in hands of diverse Love.. Unconditionally.. the connections and meanings of life in Love do grow…in together Love…the Unconditional Love of Allah that connects all Peaceful Loving life….
And when we all Practice this FREE LOVE OF DIVERSITY WITH EACH other.. putting it into Action of Unconditional Love.. the Kingdom of Heaven of Allah will arise.. in the ONE TRUE RELIGION OF ALLAH’S UNCONDITIONAL LOVE…:)
And for those of us who practice it Now.. with all others…
The Kingdom of Heaven is already ours… WITH ALLAH..
NOw.. in eyes of Allah’s greatest gift to human..
Unconditional GIVING Love.. to ALL others…:)
Reaching out our limbs and letting the leaves of Love fall to others
where ever we go……now….in Allah’s Unconditional Love….
Cool Thanksgiving pics…like that the sun shone where you are and the lovely sentiments in your poem.
Thanks for stopping by Kathy.. and this time of the Year of November in Florida as Winter approaches the humidity leaves and the Azure color of the sky is once again guaranteed… at least until the clouds of November do arrive again.. and as juxtaposition to how bright it is normally in florida they can be dreary too.. for the darkness that does ensue…
So like my cat.. i am thrilled when the Sun comes out and i keep moving in it as that way i am rarely cooked by it unevenly… 🙂
Oh.. and Happy Thanksgiving to you.. hope you had a nice one…:)
Hey, glad you made it and are here to tell your story. Happy everything.
Hi the Other Mary.. i truly am glad to be here to tell a story of this man…
Who lived with so much fear and stress that eventually it broke him down into little pieces of 19 major documented medical disorders with other ingredients of disintegration of human being mixed in….
Somehow through time of 5 years.. and great effort.. one word at a time.. one step at a time.. all the disorders and PAIN DID finally go away.. including the worst pain known to mankind.. type two Trigeminal Neuralgia.. from wake to sleep.. like having one’s teeth drilled without novocaine.. except it was in eye and ear making effective use of those sense organs almost impossible..
But that wasn’t the worst part.. the worst part was losing all feeling of emotion.. where the greatest blessing in five years.. was when a beloved cat died.. and one tear came as the greatest strength of emotion this man felt in five years.. and a spark greater in darkness for recovery it was too…
Before that it was having these little screws screwed into his tear ducts as Sjogren’s Syndrome had taken away the natural ability for this man’s eyes to make tears.. yes.. the discomfort of that took his mind off of the other pain for a split second and his appetite came back…for about a second…kind of like that story about the guy wanting a drop of water in hell.. except in this case water was everywhere and he still couldn’t drink it all the other seconds out of life..
So this man was so amazed by the All That IS that some folks describe as GOD or Mother Nature True that allowed this man to recover.. AND now after 15 months has passed since his 5 year stint in literal human hell.. he has danced a ballet/martial arts style of dance walk all throughout his metro area.. 2600 miles as measured by Nike GPS sports watch..as his wife shops to her content.. as when one lives in hell.. they tend not to care much for spending money anymore..:)
People sometimes wonder why i dance so much…IN REAL LIFE…
THEY OFTEN ask me am i on drugs when i dance at RAVE DANCES to be this high on life….
The saddest part of all is i had to go to hell…
Just to dance the dance of life…..
Our ancestors did it as a way of life.. to connect.. young and old.. where all the social roles in society were valued as a way of life where people truly depending on each other for basic human subsistence and survival….
I am the Canary in the coal mine.. who survived.. and is here to tell a story.. perhaps some will listen… and heed the call to truly dance the dance of life….
But i truly.. in REAL LIFE.. can only dance and hope.. as words are not enough.. to bring the dead back to life….in FEELING WHAT TRULY CAN BE LIFE..:) WHEN DANCED AND BREATHED AS SUCH..:)
HOPE YOU had a Happy Thanksgiving.. and this is my place in today’s blog post to tell more of the story of my life.. to attempt to spark something in someone.. that hasn’t been sparked before.. And just the few words you gave me…
were inspiration enough.. to do.. just that…:)
As far as i knowNOW all there is is now.. so it’s never something i spend much time contemplating on.. as the future does not exist.. but considering the theory of infinite returns per the full scope of Infinity.. Karma might be a real thingy.. so i take everything i do with the weight of Infinity as Light as that may be too..:)
We are quite small in our perception of reality as human beings.. RELATively speaking/seeing/hearing/etc….
i for one do not want to come back as a grasshopper and get crushed under foot for several hundred lifetimes…
i for one do not know if this is possible considering the grand expanse of Infinity…
so i am NOT taking that chance.. WHATEVER IT COULD BE.. as truly the Golden Rule is not hard to follow for one who truly CARES TO both with reason and FEELING..:)
BUT WITHOUT FEELING.. some folks see no REASON to do it..
i FEEL alive.. i AM alive now.. and i live it as such.. that’s all that counts to me.. but i’m never alone.. as i FEEL THE CONNECTEDNESS of All That Is.. animate and inanimate as such.. AND even the idea of inanimate is an illusion as well….as at core electrons do still move…EVEN among the smallest of inanimate existence as well..:)
So yeah.. i live like NOW IS FOREVER.
SEEMS LIKE A COOL WAY TO GO…

Gravatar is one of the coolest things ever!! !
True and the easiest way to Understand GOD IS IT (god) IS not that complicated unless one makes IT as such….
i prefer to be the wave as well.. and LET the rest of GOD’s realm be field and particles…
THE best thing about fluid intelligence is…
Whereas Crystallized Intelligence is just that….
COOL AVATAR.. by the way..:)

Gravatar is one of the coolest things ever!! !
An amazing write! It ‘shouldn’t’ work as a poem, with all those capitals, and divided into such short lines going down the page … but it so totally does. And such generosity of photographs too, and the frankness in your comments — thank you for it all. (PS I like your cat. 🙂 )
Hi Rosemary.. and that is a very nice compliment there you write and i appreciate it very much…:)
Thanks for stopping by and glad you enjoyed the photos too.. as that is a ‘little’ bit out of the norm for poetry too..;)
And Yellow Boy says hi too.. and hope your Thanksgiving was great!..:)too.. and yes that’s too many too’s..:)too……;)
Well, if this was all there was to Gnostic Christian ways of belief I would agree whole heartedly as it is fair enough as you describe it here, but there are parts of it that some Gnostic Christians believe, like sex is evil, and in general that the spiritual human is disconnected from an evil flesh and blood existence that is beyond any common sense of the GOD of Mother Nature True, which I personally know is All That Is and not just this part or that part over there….
Not accepting reality the way it is and looking for something else but the way it is, is well, a pipe dream at best.
However, the reality Culture presents of Mother Nature True aka GOD too, and human nature is often illusion and not much to do with either Mother Nature True or Human Nature.
For example, sitting in front of a box at least 8 hours a day, and not moving substantially and focusing on one point a couple feet away.
Sheer insanity is what that is per Human and Mother Nature True.
But culture says do it, and the ‘zombies’ and or ‘robots’ do comply, sad as that is the truth now in society for many folks now.
And some of the Christian Gnostics say sex is evil and some folks ‘foolishly’ refrain from Masturbation while Monkeys continue to listen to GOD aka Mother Nature True and just do what feels good as that is how GOD truly works, when people truly listen to The Real GOD aka Mother Nature True…..:)
And then some folks with the disease of addiction do it too much by way of Pornography, but intermittent gratification and balance is the way of GOD, not this instant gratification crap, that eventually can make people wet noodles, in true effect.
But anyway, from the parts of Gnostic Christianity you highlight above, it is much more balanced with Mother Nature True aka GOD too, than what most modern Christians practice against UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, instead of for it, per Anti-Christ ways.

There is so much to be thankful for if we pause and look around. Unconditional love is a great gift and one to be thankful for as it comes from the heart.
Yes.. Truedessa.. true that is.. and what thing i enjoy about photography more than anything else i guess.. is it focuses my attention on the flowers of life instead of being lost in the forest never seeing the detail of beauty all around me…
But then there is tapestry and sometimes words take me there.. as well..as forest and ocean as whole of what i know to be GoD..too..:)as true….
Happy Thanksgiving again..:) too…..
Being thankful for freedom is something to be truly thankful for.
So true Summerstommy2.. without the Freedom that so many folks before us and with us still dare to die for US my FREEDOM TRULY COULD NOT EXIST AS IS.. AND i would have never had the potential to heal in many countries as my out of the box methods for healing would have been extinguished ranging up to my potential execution, as sadly and seriously as that may sound…
So yes.. truly FREEDOM IS THE GREATEST GIFT OF HUMAN AND OR GOD WHEN BOTH WORK TOGETHER FOR FREE..:)
HOPE your Thanksgiving was wonderful.. friend…:)
My, you are a creative soul! Your poem is very distinctive, unlike any other I have seen. I especially liked this concept:
UNDERSTAND THEIR BASIC ANIMAL HUMAN NATURE..
Thanks so much for stopping by Lydia.. and my goodness that is one of the nicest compliments i have received to date.. in my creative attempts to write…
i just let it go and let it flow.. and what comes does come..
in just doing it..;) as Nike says.. ha-ha..!
Hope you are having a great night..too..:)
