Explore (for Sunday Scribblings)

Travelling the mysterious lands of my mind
And crossing the unchartered oceans of my emotions
I’m facing raging storms and scary shadows in the night
I have no map and no survival kit
No house or shelter, no place to hide

Yet, I venture on with the spirit of an explorer
I know that there’s a treasure to find
Deep in that jungle of tangled emotions
Beyond the dust and dirt of wrong perceptions
Hidden amongst overgrown ruins of concepts of self

Will I keep standing here
Like a deer in the headlights
Of a car racing towards it
And just get run over
Or will I be able
To tear myself away
From being fascinated
By this deadly illusion
We call life
And jump into the darkness
Of not knowing
What I will find
Once I start looking

Flying home

Under the surface
Underneath all the madness
Of constant movement

Below the crushing waves
And burning houses
Is my true home

To get there I have to
Let go of everything
I hold onto

Transcend the boundaries set
By my definitions
Of self and others


Then jump

And fly

What if?

What if I told you that this is all there is?

Would you stop searching?
Would you stop your relentless efforts
to improve things
and instead come to terms
with reality just as it is?
Would you be able to see
that everything is already perfect?

Or would you continue to choose
to follow aversion and desire
through an imagined maze
when there is nothing to find
nothing to achieve
and nothing to change?

Would you finally open up your heart
and let it all in?
The good and the bad
in equal measures
until it all becomes of one taste?

Would you be brave enough?
Would you hold tight
and withstand the force of the storm
to eventually reveal the rainbow
inside your heart?

Like a diamond hit by the light
Spectral colours
