a solitary journey?

inspired by Blake’s songs of innocence

Go back and read the previous article and pick out the important factors for discerning one’s solitary journey.

There’s a big clue: DISCERNMENT. That means RESEARCH at your own cellular level, which means finding your SOUL.

And have COMMITMENT, tinged with MILD OBSESSION. And DELIGHT.

All of these things you must EXPLORE and then comes the LETTING GO. GIVE IN. Let life HAPPEN, with AWARENESS. And the greatest two attitudes you can gather into yourself? ENTERTAIN BEING SURPRISED BY JOY (CS Lewis) and ENTERTAIN POSSIBILITIES (Emily Dickinson).

Ask questions here. Keep records. Above all, stop sleepwalking through life! And SHARE with INTUITION and DISCERNMENT. In other words, complete circles.

There are many BLESSINGS AND SADNESSES along this flower-strewn way.

Such is life, lived intentionally. No self-medicating. No denial. Just learning to love yourself so that you can love others and explore your spiritual ancestry and destination.

The Ginkgo is the sole survivor of a primitive order of plants.  If you want to define ‘survivor’ in this instance, we’re talking more than 200 million years. The Ginkgo remains basically unchanged, with its beautiful, bi-lobed, fan-shaped leaves.  Its primordial vascular system continually divides in twos. The wood is hard and unassailable.  As the sole surviving link between the lower (ferns) and higher (conifers) plants, the ginkgo is mythical as a fountain of youth.  A Ginkgo Queen in China has been dated at 2500 years old.


“You don’t have to make something that people call art.
Living is an artistic activity, there is an art to getting through the day.” –Viggo Mortensen


Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.  ―Thoreau

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
substance = physical matter with a tangible, solid presence
hope = the grounds for belief
evidence = body of facts or information
things not seen = the invisible realm


“Existence is a series of footnotes to a vast, obscure, unfinished masterpiece.” ― Vladimir Nabokov
