Let me fall if I must fall. The one I will become will catch me.

  • Baal Shem Tov

Joanne Conger

Who says words with my mouth?
All day I think about it, then at night, I say it.
Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing?
I have no idea.
My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that,
and I intend to end up there.
This drunkenness began in some other tavern.
When I get back around to that place,
I’ll be completely sober. Meanwhile,
I’m like a bird from another continent, sitting in this aviary.
The day is coming when I fly off,
but who is it now in my ear who hears my voice?
Who says words with my mouth?
Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul?
I cannot stop asking.
If I could taste one sip of an answer,
I could break out of this prison for drunks.
I didn’t come here of my own accord,
and I can’t leave that way.
Whoever brought me here will have to take me home.

This poetry, I never know what I’m going to say.
I don’t plan it.
When I’m outside the saying of it,
I get very quiet and rarely speak at all.

“The ripple of the living mind-space amongst us…” Ellias Lonsdale.
The “Intimidation Frequency” once we understand it is the modern anxiety of life which locks us into its vibration/frequency. That polarity exists for a reason good or bad but beyond that is another way of looking at Life and interacting with it that balances the two and in that balance is the stepping stone for transcendence. From the stepping stone in the center, out of the river and into the firmament.

The failure to recognize the Always Already,
This Never Not Now,
Causes you to seek in all the wrong directions.
A path to Here or a path to Now is
A path away from Here and Now.
Whatever begins as an aid
Ultimately becomes an obstacle.
Chasing after something to be delivered
in some imagined future is
A movement away in this very moment.

When the mind disengages from the world,
It slows down.
Also disengaged from imagination,
It comes to a standstill.
This is its inherent nature.
New adaptations of existence will then
Naturally come into being.

It is the allowing of What-Is to be without
Adding dramatizations to it.
Realize this for yourself and live accordingly.
Just as water remains nothing but water
Regardless of the shape of the container,
This essence is the same
Regardless of what it is contained in.
