The Taste of Sky

When the struggle comes to an end, the suffering lifts. You are not who you thought you were. You thought you were caught here in the world. You thought the world had dominion over you. You believed there was such a thing as dominion.

The sky is more blue than you ever thought possible. Blue like a taste. Blue like a thin film you can walk through.

You thought you were close to solving the problem, but the problem is not here. There were so many answers that seemed to be surrounding you, but they have flown off like feathers, delicate and light. They don’t need you today.

You thought you were something. You thought you were nothing. You found that everything is not enough. You found that nothing is too hard to bear. Then you watched your self float off like shiny dust.

There is a song that has been singing you for a thousand years. Now that your self is drifting, you can hear it once again. It is awake in the taste of the air that turns blue and disappears.

Night and day merge as night grows darker and the day vanishes. You were only here for a moment, but it lasted centuries.

You have spent your entire life in the now and you have everything to show for it. Everything can fit in the now. Nothing can fit anywhere else.

Soon you will lose the sense of falling. You will smell the damp leaves that warm and become your nourishment – until you need no nourishment. You will fill up and disappear.

My God it’s great to be alive.

  1. Truly an awesome post Rob. So much information provided and poetically adorned. “You thought you were something. You thought you were nothing.” So beautiful. My favorite read of the day. Tomorrow (Saturday the 30th) is my birthday, would you mind if I re-blogged your post on my website tomorrow? I’m new to the blogging world; so, I’m not familiar with blogging etiquette. It will of course be linked back to you. Have a super day! And thanks again for an awesome read. Peace & Love, Lorlinda

    Today is my birthday. I’m not going to tell you how old I am but I will tell you that I will always celebrate my birthday no matter how old I get.

    And to celebrate, I’ve re-blogged this beautiful piece by my friend Rob Spiegel from Spiritual Awakening.

  3. Oh, this is simply wonderful! Thank you, Rob! “You thought you were close to solving the problem, but the problem is not here. There were so many answers that seemed to be surrounding you, but they have flown off like feathers, delicate and light. They don’t need you today.” Right ON!!!!

  4. Rob, “You have spent your entire life in the now and you have everything to show for it. Everything can fit in the now. Nothing can fit anywhere else.”
