Footprints in the Windsm # 1884–an infinity inside

Footprints in the Windsm # 1884

When you meet, shake hands,
want to yell at the one who
gets the space you wanted,
or at a child moving too slowly,
please remember:
there is an infinity inside
each
& a larger one inside
together
see this & touch


Please pass it on.

Minor and major truths

There are minor truths like “crime does not pay,” “be yourself,” even “God is love.” There are major truths, for which we often do not find words, truths lived.

Some years positive some negative

We cannot lead the 300-year grandchild elders to a state that has the same positive or negative charge all their lives, beginning to end. They too will have gut-wrenching choices.

Compel our choices

If character is unearthed—even forged—in pressurized choice, so we compel ourselves into choices. This, in our course of growing prophetic story, every meeting.

Your prophetic function

Look to the prophets’ lives for eldering tales, eldering exemplars: they too told forth truth. At some time your life might perform a prophetic function.

I can’t give you, elder, the insights you’ll need: I can act to be steel to your flint.

Research the future’s unborn

If we’re to story of or for the generations, we’ll need to do the hard work to research them. Yes, you can research the future’s unborn: in your imagination and intellect; in what others have written; in your memories.

Money is about fear

Money is about greed, that is to say, fear. Fear of death: death of body, death of life’s dreams, death of blue skies and gentle breezes.

Choice of destinations

Fate may be change. Destiny may be in the choice of destinations.

Thinking is always changing

This explains why my thinking is always changing, sometimes growing, sometimes spiraling back around: necessity. Change is the fundamental reality. I shall respond. No choice. A world of choices in how to respond.

True to my bones

The truth I seek is beyond proof of facts: it reaches what is true to our own being. It is largely incapable of being stated. The phrase, true to my bones, starts to capture it. Essence is too broad. Reaching in and twisting my guts is closer. It tells me, naked to the world.

If we get to this kind of truth, it deals with the changing: of my world, of my life, of my truth. It fights this change, paddles with the stream, falls in and is overwhelmed by this stream. What is me, and what is this truth then? That is the question, is it not?

Somehow, I am expected to respond. Rightly. For the sake of others and even for the sake of the species and all there is.

Where is the thread?

One live question: if life is change, then wherein is our hope? What is the thread? Life itself? Beauty? Goodness. Capital T Truth?
