The Secret Ingredient

Quote Of The Day

“When the eye is unobstructed, the result is sight. When the ear is unobstructed, the result is hearing. When the mind is unobstructed the result is truth. When the heart is unobstructed, the result is joy and love.” – Anthony De Mello.

Out Of Balance

OUT OF BALANCE

Intellect needs heart
Without care its achievements
Only end in tears

The True Measure

THE TRUE MEASURE

The mind may be smart
But the heart feels and feeling
Truly understands

Admission

ADMISSION

Since Sunday school been mild and meek
Maladroit at playing at love’s hide and seek
From the touch line watched my heart beat
While my coach advised me, “Be discreet”

Then of a sudden an uninvited thought
That you might be the one I sought
No longer lost in love I can’t care less
And rest at last content to go to press

Autoimmune

AUTOIMMUNE

Earth the earth mother births forth throughout all time
Fresh oceans and jungles, sand dunes and waterfalls
Mountains and dewdrops, snowdrops and hurricanes

Animal, vegetable, mineral: all relations under one roof
Relations with relationships, even the local hub her Sun
Though that’s another story (Any family has its secrets)

Symbiotic miracles manifest in an ecological ecologic
Self-sustaining, with immunity to exogenous disaster
Then enter stage right the loup-garou, immune to logic

Humanity, wolverine, acts as an autoimmune disease
Fighting against not external foes but its own family
Renegade berserker, out of control and without a cure

Corporate drug baron fat on steroids plays mind games
Touts temporary solutions that suppress the symptoms
While steadfastly ignoring the most obvious causations

Lethal cash infections further weaken the body politic
Peddle profitable pills that promise only artificial health
While side effects are busy destroying something else

A toxin poisoning the heart where love’s dream expires
Stoking fiery emotions where patience once held sway
Eating through the bones whose power is but a memory

Unexplained fevers erupt in rage on the nightly newscast
So-called progress is just a progression of the sickness
An extreme fatigue? Yes, extremely tired of the insanity

MIYAGI SAY MORE

All have heart and mind
Sometimes struggle for power
But best heart in charge
Mind is function like fire
Good friend but bad enemy
