You can say something
a million different ways
and each way
with a combination of slightly different words
and a slightly different angle
will be received uniquely
The quality of light
every time it enters us
falls a certain way
its own way,
and how it falls,
is something the mind decides
in the present moment
As I write this, I have just written a post on my Patreon blog about gifts to the future self and how learning to speak to a future audience that isn’t here yet, is difficult. I have a great group of people here and on Instagram but the Patreon site is new. There is no one listening and every time I post it is like shouting into the void, or twitter. It is easy to feel disheartened and just not post there, post where I am “seen” instead. I don’t say this as a exhortation to go follow me over there – I can see why no one would particularly right now, when there is only a few poems, a few posts – nothing much to read home about – literally.
I am in the content building stage. It can’t be the same content I have here it has to be different because hello! Why would someone buy what they can just read for free.
What I do find though is that thoughts do tend to go around and wisdom does tend to fall a little deeper every time. That water carves a path in the rock just as experience does with the mind. Sometimes it might sound almost familiar but it is feels so integrally different that large leaps in growth occur.
That is what is happening right now when I explore concepts like beliefs. When I think about how I used to think certain things were true and now I just don’t believe that anymore and I believe something so much more helpful and inspiring.
Reading our own thoughts and our life experience is like reading a book. You can read a good book in your teens. You read it again in your twenties and it is different, thirties, different again and by the time you get to your forties and fifties (not there yet but I can imagine:) and so on – the book is dog eared, well loved and the information is received on a channel and level that just simply wasn’t available when we were younger.
I have those channels ahead of me and I am so excited to arrive with my tattered little book of self tucked under my arm and have it open even further
Anyway, it’s lovely to continue to write each day on WordPress and I do so appreciate the audience even more having just come off my post on Patreon that while satisfying because it is for my future…is a little bit like whispering in a sleeping dogs ear.
