    1. Thank you so much, Watt. I am thrilled by your words.
      I read your most recent post three times. It’s fantastic. I will be there to comment soon. I’m still thinking about 🙂

       
    1. Good morning, Drew

      Aw.. my brilliance… Thank you so much. You are too kind.
      Enjoy your day. Be happy. Be inspired.
      G.

       
  1. I’m still amazed that someone of your poetic stature finds the time to not only read my work but is also a fan. Congrats G. from one of your biggest fans!!! Your words tend to linger in my subconscious and for that I also thank you.

     
    1. Thank you so much, Ash. I am humbled by the praise.

      Yes, I am a true fan of your work. Your work is beautiful and deserves to be read.

      Ash, I’ve never sought glory. It’s funny because you expressed so well what I seek: “Your words tend to linger in my subconscious and for that I also thank you.”
      I should be thanking you for that. Know I do.from the bottom of my heart.

       
      1. I read it Charlie. I liked it. Now, I am still struggling to interpret it 🙂 That is why I did not comment yet. I will be reading it again tonight.
        I’ll be there 🙂

         
  2. “A scented summer washes the blackness of your silence.”
    Well, this is just so beautiful, how I would wish to be washed by this summer and your words.
    “If heaven were hell what would you do?
    If I must pick one type of love it wouldn’t be eternal love.

    These questions. My dear G, what would you do, and what kind of love would you choose?

    You’re so talented. Congratulations on another work being published, too.

     
    1. Thank you for the congrats, my dearest R.

      I’ve always thought about the transitory quality of our lives. “Eternal” is solely a defense mechanism, hence the power of all religions. That is what I think.
      I know no more. Too often my brain struggles to understand. Too often I fail.
      I like to think that one can find joy and love in the moment. But that’s again another defense mechanism.
      I wish I would have a better answer.

      All I feel now when I write is a desire to know you are happy. It is as simple as that.
      Hugs to you, my dearest R. Be happy.

       
      1. I have thought deeply about what you said as I sit here and listen to the sea. The idea of the “eternal” gives us hope and as you say, that’s a defense mechanism to guard us from the inevitability of the end. But it makes us vulnerable too, to fear and pain, and to some of the trappings of religion. You are right, really we have but a moment on this earth and we need to try and find joy in that. Or, we have to accept that life is not full of joy, or eternity, and actually what we need to strive for is acceptance of that and to not try and fight it. Paradoxically giving up thjs fight is what can make us more at peace, maybe happier. That’s what I think, but that’s inadequate too…

        As I sit here listening to the sea, I hear your wish for me to be happy carried in the tide. I’m sure of it, and that makes me happy. I have asked the sea to carry that same wish in its whispers through the oceans and back to you. Connections are everywhere if you are open to them.

        Much love to you dear G. I truly consider you a friend xox

         
      2. Hey my dearest R,
        Your comment is beautiful and filled with wisdom, love and questions 🙂 I have tones of questions too that nobody can really answer.
        “we have to accept that life is not full of joy, or eternity, and actually what we need to strive for is acceptance of that and to not try and fight it.” Oh, this influence of the Indian metaphysical thought. You have no idea how much I struggle with that. One liberates herself by renunciation. Don’t expect anything from life. Suffering and pain come from ignorance. No matter what, live in the moment. Well, I thought so much about. I tried to read the best scholars on matters of history of religions.
        But, then so much beauty came from pain. Driven by pain so many artists created unbelievable work. The other day one of my followers was complaining about the disappearance of Buddhism. Buddhism is not vanishing. Actually in some various forms is spreading all over the world. Yoga studios..
        I’ll get back to you soon.
        Enjoy the waves and their love for you…
        Hugs.
        Have a beautiful weekend, my dear.

         
      3. For me it is not about trying to renounce pain and suffering, but to accept it rather than fight it. To allow ourselves the experience of it, make room within ourselves for it. And by doing that, remove the struggle and therefore reduce our suffering. I am definitely influenced by Buddhist ways of thinking, and as you say, in a way people now gravitate toward these fundamental beliefs in yoga studios or mindfulness practice. It’s a kind of an antidote to modern culture although somehow misses the spiritual component a little I think. Pain is a part of life, fighting pain intensifies it. Pain can be the bearer of creativity and art like you say.

        Such deep discussions G. I can see the depth of wisdom and thought in your poems, and your thirst for knowledge.

        Happy weekend gorgeous friend x

         
      4. Hello my dearest R

        Thank you so much for your beautiful words.

        ” it is not about trying to renounce pain and suffering, but to accept it rather than fight it. To allow ourselves the experience of it, make room within ourselves for it.” You know, I think that’s the best course. I trust you 🙂

        “in a way people now gravitate toward these fundamental beliefs in yoga studios or mindfulness practice. It’s a kind of an antidote to modern culture although somehow misses the spiritual component a little I think” YES. That’s my feeling too.

        Do you think alike? 🙂

        xoxo
