Hi Everyone, for over 20 years I’ve been working through the Maze that a Seeker–who is after a Whole-Life, Meaning of Life and such, type of thing, and not a fear-based/carrot on a stick type of “Spiritual” (as opposed to “religious”)–must come to terms that all those Insights, Epiphanies, (and so much more) I’ve Experienced, should become part of the “Commons,” (in other words:shared).
To that end, I’ve just established a Sister-Blog, called “Gaea’s Midwife” at http://gaeasmidwife.wordpress.com.
If all goes as planned, my first Entry will coincide with the Summer Solstice, and a little Surprise ;). I’ll be playing the piano during this morning’s Service’s Meditationm at a small Metaphysical Chapel, I go to, on Sundays. I like this Group a great deal, have many Friends, and enjoy our Fellowship.
As for”Gaea’s Midwife” blog, I’ll strive to maintain both. This doesn’t mean I won’t continue writing here; I just felt that both “Mom” and “Baby Gaea” should have their Own, separate blog. Namastè, ma89 aka gaea’s midwife
While “Surfing” through other Blogs I follow, I came across an old Post about a Scarf, by blogger John Tuite, I hadn’t yet read. Finally, taking the time to read it, his 6-month-old Post, Rekindled in me the Understanding of the Importance of most of all: Gratitude, while also Acknowledging the certain Degree of Consciousness, and “Willingness to be of Service to us”, which “Objects” Do have. “Buddy,” my Piano and I, for example, have a very Loving and Warm Relationship with each other. Though ravaged several years ago, by felt-loving “Silverfish”–and no longer able to stay Tuned–He and I Commune, as One, when I Play “Him.” Continue reading On The Nature of “Things”🗿

NOTE: The first Para on this Blog is in my Reply to John in his Blog:
…As for the Typos in my own post, those are my Own “Bad,” for I’m still learning how to use WordPress, and “Index-Typing” on my Phone.
As for the Texting, Yeah, I get your Point loud and clear, except my Native Language (Portuguese) IS by its very Nature a Wordy Language–something I’ve never been capable of learning to Undo, even after learning in College to use the “Inverted Pyramid Writing Style,” (Journalism).
This is why I’ve turned to Poetry, I can say far more, implying much, without saying as much. OTOH 😉 I’ve never taken a Poetry class in my Life, and have only come to appreciate it late in Life. I’m also self-learning Haikus, to Communicate with one of my Sons, who lived in Japan five years, and who has the gift of Brevity in his Writing.
Between Christmas 2012, and Spring 2014, I had a Lovely Dating Friendship with Someone, I’ll call Martin*, who had two Saphyres for Eyes. I nicknamed him “Caribbean Eyes.” By about six months, I’d written a record Eight Poems, five about his eyes, alone. The Poem below–written March 20, 2013–is one of those five:

Let me spy
into these Seas;
Let me step (gently)
Onto these waters;
Let me Wade (waist-high),
Into these Tides;
Let me Revel (ever so fully),
Into the Gorgeousness…,
(of these seas)
At once Transluscent, Deep,
The most Gorgeous Set of Sees
I’ve ever seen!
The “sees” which tho’ not “seas,”
Look just like one;
A Sea of Beauty, Wonder and Color,
The Caribbean Sea,
Which Your “sees”
bring to mind,
I look at you!
* “Martin” is a Fictitious Name, for a Very Real Individual, and Friend, who–though now dating Someone else–is still a Great Friend.
