Yearning from concrete to changes…

The cradle of quintessential ©copyright2015owpp

The cradle of quintessential

I need change.
The kind that will slice the past from the future.
The one that throws the stale to the wolves giving them a chance to feast on old despair, new pain.
That erases the awkwardness of unwanted strokes & colours in an uninspired moment on canvas.
The change that brings spring to one’s step, washes dust accumulated over a lifetime, gives a breath of life to depleted lungs tired of screaming frustration.

A new beginning.

A leaf untouched…
Thick enough to hold the weight of gold, music, streams of clear pure me, of light happiness, of life in every second, in every drop reflecting the warmth & invitation of sunlight, the growth of tiny shoots…
Of essence.

I need not escape realities of life but nudity of meaning, void spreading its wings demanding more space.
I need change now, not a price dangling in front of a screaming soul.
If the world can make changes nobody wants, I can make changes I aspire to for a decade.

But how does one move a continual existence among concrete to the cradle of quintessential, the pacifying arms of space, growth & tranquillity without the means to grasp that suspended dream?

I shout not of despondency but whisper the conveyance of promise, the strategy of hope.
I feed not the fond illusion of a fool’s paradise…
A few questions in wait of disclosure & the walls will come tumbling down…
A few more steps in that direction escorted by diligence & the carrot will be in my mouth!

  1. Great reflexion about our live and our need for spring and renewal , hope “possible ” in our daily 😉

  2. Wow this is fantastic. “Slice the past from the future” love that line and imagery.

  3. Fortunately, the only constant in life is change.
    Change is inevitable while growth is optional. 😉

    • The obvious which I hadn’t thought of before your mentioning it! Having said that, I was rather talking about positive changes, as moving from concrete/town to a more creatively inspiring place, country/nature. Yet, I still enjoyed your remark which is a very positive one, if we all agree life is about constant motion/change we can go up to a level of acceptance & through that perspective see that it does not necessarily have a negative connotation.
      Thanks for the input 🙂

      • Change is change. It can be positive or negative. Perception is a choice and I have my rose coloured glasses on! 😉

      • You are lucky to always have them on 🙂 I usually do but I am human & sometimes falter… it usually happens for a one & only reason, not yet accepting being far from nature. It is obvious that change could be negative or positive & that it’s one’s choice to perceive it one way or another, that is a philosophy I first heard from Dr.Wayne Dyer & tried implementing it in my daily routine but as I mentioned above I have long given up the illusion of being faultless & accepted that I’m perfectly imperfect 😉
        Best wishes!

      • Alas, it is not possible for me to have them on all the time. However, a professor in graduate school once told me that he thought he was the king of positive reframing but for me he doffed his crown! As for perfectly imperfect, that is the only way! 😉
        Those who admit to being perfect have a problem with reality and truth. C’est la vie!

      • Very wise words! Totally agree 🙂
        merci pour vos commentaires.

  4. Truly delightful like all your magical work. Thank you!

  5. This speaks to me with power of overcoming. I fee the excitement at the end, for I need change, too. I also love the lowly dandelion.

  6. Reblogged this on Anything is Possible! and commented:
    Change is possible. I admire the tenacity of dandelions.

  7. Thanks again for appreciating my post & re-blogging it! I am so happy those words spoke to you! When we feel in a rut & there’s willingness, change is bound to come up…
    Even the smallest one, is a big step forward 🙂
    The tenacity of nature piercing through asphalt is a poignant reminder to my eyes & is always a strong reminder of what we are capable of achieving with a little perseverance.
    Best wishes to you for a beautiful weekend!

  8. I love the passion conveyed by your words and the way you so clearly express the desire to change and leave behind the heavy weight of past experiences in favour of something personally sublime. It’s a good thing to remember that if the world can make changes nobody wants, then we can make changes we can aspire to for a decade. I love that line and also how you give us the tools…hope, self-inquiry, small steps and diligence. I really needed to hear this at this stage of my journey. Thank you. I also am a fan of Dr. Dyer’s teachings. 🙂

    • I am the one loving the way you describe my post. It makes me happy to realise it was written in a way my followers could & can relate to… maybe even help them go in the direction of their desires, their vision of what purpose or shape their life should take 🙂
      Thank you for making me aware of all that, you have my gratefulness & deep appreciation.
      Best wishes go to you for a pleasant summer & a wonderful week!

  9. Beautiful shot and words, great work my friend !!!
