‘Seek Not to Find the ‘SAME’
from past experience,
A treasured moment, or a kiss.
I had a dream last night that led me on a path of inquiry and recognition:
of myself, of us, of perfection in the moment.
When I catch myself looking back in time,
in appreciation of a sensual, emotional or spiritual experience of perfection, that gave me
great pleasure or comfort,
I’m inclined to want the ‘same’ again.
However, there is not now,
nor will there ever be again…
Therefore, I nourish myself with memory,
And return to the moment of NOW
to find the splendor of perfection
I use my reference to perfections past
foundation to inspire new adventures.
for another awesome moment
is to be available
for the next experience of perfection
in every moment.
We were meant to be curious and amazed…
a ‘discoverer of miracles.’
Being so will keep us young
with fresh eyes.
I trust our potential
to attract perfection
to all the moments in life.
And when I look into your eyes again
it will be
the first time.
Love doesn’t ask
anything ‘same’ of us.
Only the truth
of who we are
