Pure Potential

As I’m sure you are aware, Spring has sprung forth and is giving life back to the plants and trees that have been dormant for the past few months.  Insects and birds are fluttering about on warm breezes that just beckon me outdoors.  Life’s potential to give birth to more life is in action, and I feel compelled to write about it.



If you believe in the Big Bang theory, then billions and billions of years ago there was…

MAKING OUR WAY

© 2012 Howard McQueen

 

Make your way

back into your own gateway,

your center,

where all potential is present,

where heaven and hell are recognized

as arising from interpretation 

shaped by perspective

and expressed through intention.

 

This trinity: interpretation, perspective and intention,

with the necessary…

LETTING GO OF WHAT HAS BECOME STALE

© 2012 Howard McQueen 

 

How can we continue to believe

that there is security

in what is stale,

in what we’ve already harvested,

in what we’ve already celebrated?

 

Many times in this life,

we hear the not so faint calling

to build our new nest,

and our hearts

or about my life.

For the longest time, it seemed to me

that there were injustices done to me

that were patently unfair.

 

Then, over the course of time,

I sowed those injustices upon others,

becoming initiated and intimately aware

of the suffering already loose in this…

THE MEDIOCRE SPIRITUAL TEACHER-HEALER

© 2012 Howard McQueen

 

It starts out innocent enough,

 a casual conversation begun.

Goodwill is opened, friendship warmed,

 all this seemingly under the auspices of genuine inquiry.

 

As the questions continue however,

 there is the sense of a rigid and analytical agenda firming up.

Information about me is highlighted and then inflated,

 supposedly on my behalf.

 

The conversation is herded along so that a…

CELEBRATING BEING



© 2012 Howard McQueen
 
All too often
 we wait to celebrate being together - till we are leaving.
 
Everyday we have the opportunity
 to be radical daredevils
 and let escape our words,
 profusely professing
 our love for each other.
 
Why are we still…
