Words are my limitation.
For the last few years I have been blessed enough to participate in an adventure of unknown proportions with my friend Kelly(Laozu).
He always takes the time to document his/our journeys in detail.
I am refering to his â€?Heaven and Earthâ€? chronicles, which can be read [here http://www.materiaetherica.com/heavenandearth.html:1y32mo0t).
I understand if people might have some expectations/wishes from my part to also contribute what I experience during our trips but so far I havent been able to meet those expectations/whishes.
Hand in hand with these journeys has been a road of personal development for me which in many ways can be explained as immensly rapid and ever increasing.
During our trips so many â€?thingsâ€? occur that are so personal and also foreign(at the time) to me that I am very hesitant in trying to explain them, I feel this is the wisest decision.
Otherwise I might paint a fairytale like picture with big gold letters spelling out: Sensational!
The mystical aspect of existance seems to have a strange attraction to the seeking human being, and within the circles these words are read that might be truer than elsewhere.
When I am not traveling I am quite secluded as a person, I donâ€™t interact much socially.
During a recent trip to China, Kelly and myself met two Buddhist nuns, one of them spoke English very well and told us about their beliefs.
I think to her surprise I very much live like a Buddhist monk would do but withouth the typical religious framework around me.
The difference between myself and a monk belonging to a convent or monastery is that I have to work to sustain myself and I donâ€™t follow a set of scriptures dedicatedly(although I might be doing exactly what certain scriptures recommend).
My income is usually provided by serving as a handyman, meaning masonry work, tiling, demolition chores, house painting etc.
It is a nice contrast to the inward path I also walk simultaniously.
Once in a while I also get decorational/design work that can pay relatively good.
Calligraphy and Typography is something that I thoroughly enjoy and if my life had been different I might have chosen that path with dedication and discipline.
My intention for sharing these words with you is to explain why I havent participated here much, vocally anyway, and also to declare my resignation from the board.
This decision has only to with me not feeling I am contributing anything here anymore.
I am also entering a stage in my life that requires me to put my focus elsewhere.
I wish to express my gratitude to Don, thank you.
Also to my dear friend Kelly for letting me tag along the earthly plains with him, deep bow.
And finally to you, you and even you.
True in being.
