The well-known and memorable fairy-tale
follows a search by one man,
for meaningful connections amid our end times.
If this is Titanic 2012 –
don’t wind up in steerage.
The ambition of the ego
never will be satisfied.
It is quite sad in its emptiness –
always seeking more,
but never feeling fulfilled.
It is better to be bold than too circumspect, because fortune is of a sex…
…which likes not a tardy wooer and repulses all who are not ardent.
Only the spiritual light
from our higher self
will bring nourishment
catapulting us into a state
of balance, wholeness, and peace
our soul desires.
He who binds himself to a Joy,
Does the winged life destroy;
I will be disappointed, I will disappoint, you will be disappointed, and you will disappoint.
Life will be disappointing. But it will pass.
He who kisses the Joy as it flies,
Lives in eternity’s sunrise.
