OUT ON A LIMB

Relationships at best can be draining, consuming, comprimising, even disheatening.
At the sametime, though they can be incredibly uplifing, blissful, uncomprimising, insatiable, even spiritual.
What makes a great relationship have problems? It is fear mostly. With all of that giving, openess, love, physical energy, comes a great fear of crawling out on a limb and being left there by yourself. As relationships grow, so do expectations. We become closer by admiring and respecting each others beliefs, passions, desires, secrets, vulnerabilities. As the comfort level increases, unfortunately so does the fear factor. Will he or she remain true, will you be able to hold each others interests? Will all the trust you have establihed be crushed by another person, or be destroyed by them or yourself.
I for once, will hold on for dear life no matter which direction it may turn. I have come closer to everything I have ever wanted before than I have ever been in my life. Now I have heard that said before and I used to laugh to myself thinking yeah sure! It is like when people talk about their kids being so cute or whatever and you think Yeah sure! ho hum! It's not until you experience it for yourself that you realize how incredible it can be.

The vision we all want for ourselves is sometimes mistaken for everyone's elses' vision. What I mean by that is we judge the world, other people, family, those closest to our hearts by our own beliefs. We make the assumption that if we believe things a certain way, then surely the other people in our lives must also.
This is what we call reality, but is it? Is it possible for others in our lives to have the same vision, same reality? I would say close is possible but not every aspect. It probably should be that way too, otherwise we may as will clone ourselves and live with duplicity. Why are we so afraid of differences? Why do we strive to surround ourselves with people who think, act, work, eat, sleep just like we do?
Instead of reveling in diversity, we cling to our safe little world view of likeness.
Look at all of the matchmaking sites on the internet for instance. How do they operate? By matching you up with a version of yourself from the oposite sex.

I say if you want a lasting relationship, perhaps seek someone out who is very different from you, but one who your share the same view of the world. Remember things that attract you to someone in the beginning are the core foundation of who you may fall in love with, so don't have expectations that you will change them or that they will change you. If it isn't there from the beginning, your probably better off not pursuing it. Keep it fun. Laughter can cure a lot of woes and it just is so much more fun. Stick to your ideals. Comprimise when you can live with it. Love yourself first, for you can never love another unless you do. Don't plan everything. Be spontaneous, they love that. Have a solid plan always, but don't forget to have a back up plan as well. Strive for happiness. One of my favorites from a native american perspective is Live life as if today was your last day on earth.

DREAMSCAPES

Baby I think I dreamscaped you last night.

after a blissful night of love and tenderness I took flight.

seeking you out into the vastness of eternal light.

A calling was abound who turned out to be a dark welcoming entitiy.

I could not run I could not hide no fear, no worry

Just a calling without remorse, without resolve I followed.

I turned to see where I had been and when I looked forward again, I was swallowed.

Again, no fear only wonder and an aching desire.

If I touch her darkness would I learn what gives her the fire?

She turned to me with a blissful glance, instantly leading me into a trance.

Following her further into the darkness, suddenly kissed by waves of bubbled water I take my stance.

All fear now a thing of the past, breathing her in harmony, surrenders completely into her arms.

What kind of place is this, I asked as it unfolds? This is not a place at all says she, this is the depths of your soul.

The depths of my soul, asks me? That's right, one would think you would recognize it's toil.

Herein is the place where every doubt, past fears, loves lost, hurt, deceit, betrayal are released.

In a frightening voice, bellows out "Release all that crap you carry now" for it can serve you no purpose now.

For it is time for us to move up to the next level, and we can no longer carry the past.

Our souls will merge together soon and we have to hurry if we want this love to last.

I look to her in wonder, are we ready for this everlasting love?

Before I can even see past her eyes, a flood of emotions washes over us and a lighted tunnel opens up.

We face each other and entwine our fingers, lips barely touching we vanish into the light.

IMMIGRATION

I want to talk about a hot topic where I live.
Immigration!
Arizona just passed one of the toughest immigration laws in history.
And it could not have come at a more horrible time than now. Our economy is in the toilet and we are dependent on business conventions and that kind of thing to survive the brutal summer months and so let's make everyone hate us even more for our laws and bigotry by passing two laws that will race profile Hispanics. I don't care what our hag governor says, the cops here will use race profiling to the max. They are already trigger happy and would rather shot you than listen to reason or if not that at least beat the crap out of you.
Oh and by the way when was the last time you heard of any real threat against this country coming out of Mexico? We all know the stories about how illegals come up here, have kids and milk the welfare system for all they can get. I have heard about these stories first hand and I know some of it goes on. How a veteran who fought in the war cannot make ends meet and cannot get any kind of assistance, yet an illegal can with having children born here, get $1500.00 or more per kid and never have to work or pay taxes. Is that the people they are going after? NO!! Of course not. They are already part of the system and they know where they live but they are not going after them. They want to go after the ones running across the borders and close off the borders. In the first place, have walls ever worked throughout history? Did they work in China? Berlin? anywhere? How about King Kong? nope, didn't work there either.
If the government really wanted to control the borders, all they need to do is legalize pot and regulate it. Then they would reap the profits and control the market thus shutting down most of the issues we have between Mexico and the U.S.
And to say its a party issue? Give me a break!! Neither party can claim to have come up with anything remotely useful in the last twenty years as far as immigration goes.
What about other portal cities that have much higher potential to let the Taliban or others in? Places like New York, Seattle, Miami? I'd say you have a much higher concern regarding terrorists in places like that then you have in Mexico. Maybe I'm not seeing the big picture here, and please enlighten me with some facts if your inclined but isn't all this really about fear. Keep everyone scared to death so your government can slowly strip you of every right this country was created for?
Beware of what you wish for. You just might get it and you will never even know what hit you...
She also passed a law to do away with special classes in Tucson aimed at Hispanics. In other words, some dickbrain legislator convinced her that these classes were anti-American and teach them to hate Americans. Do these idiots really think, they need to be taught that? Obviously anyone who is minority and has experienced profiling and racial injustice can contest to that. What mentality do these people exist in? Why are we going backwards in progress. What would we do if all diversity was wiped out and only whites existed? Who would we blame then? Then it would be the white blue collar middle class to blame for all the problems in the world. oh yes and in case you don't know the world could not exist without them...

GREATER EXPECTATION

Did winter vacate our hearts without warning
The chilling touch that loomed before us now waning

Goddess of the sun, come shine down over me
push away winter blues make him flee

Did you see her through the trees
Was she soaring to you beneath the breeze

Mother of warmth sending you healing rays of light
glistening wisps of kisses touch you before the night

Feel the heat of the sun beneath your feet
uprising through your eternal heat

Her warmth from that personal space she reserves for you only
carries you into blissful warnings

With each pulsing pleasure ignites an internal fire
culminating in every inch of desire

never stop reaching for greater expectations
these things she gives can always bring you elation's

If this love should ever cease to exist
I would follow the angels into the mist
