Have you ever created a space for One life to exist?
Have you ever loved anyOne so much
that you refused to allow others
to take Her place?
Is this love?
Love is why I’m here. I thought that’s what California was about, but what this hippie gypsy has learned over the last four years is that all men and women here have their own version of love. Like yin and yang, love between male and female often translates to sex where many San Diegans want “free love”, a community of lusty trust, then a bit of harmless torture to sand off their gamey edges.
Yesterday, I had enough of this “free love” way of thinking by expressing “no” to anymore sexual games or experiments. It’s enlightening to unwind and learn that way, but for some of these men and women, hearing the word “no” to their request to share “free love” evokes a reaction of blame, anger and rejection.
Yesterday’s test is over. It was all just a story about who was on First. With a “no, thank you” to being another second, third or fourth in line, I took a pass on sexual experiments. Instead, choosing to remain on God’s shelf in reserve for a new Man, a real One (not IT!).
p.s. Weird, this yin and yang.. isn’t it?
Sometimes I was wrong about yin
or right about yang,
or I was right about yin
and wrong about yang.
Which side it to blame?
For being right?
When people see some things as beautiful
other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.
Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.
Therefore the Master
acts without doing anything
and teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come;
things disappear and she lets them go.
She has but doesn’t possess,
acts but doesn’t expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it last’s forever.
