Waiting On the Best

  We have strong tendencies to, in all things, hedge our bets. We crave stability, surety, and the (flavorless) ‘Comfort of the Known’. This is evidenced in the endless proliferation of copy-and-paste, cookie-cutter residential & commercial districts taking over much of our modern cities.

  Strangeness, weirdness, tackiness, ‘kitsch’, whimsy, etc, are presented ostensibly as distinguishing...

“What is Love?
Love is Energy.
The Energy of Life Herself.
Love has no 'should', no 'must', no obligation.
Love is total Freedom.
Love remains because She chooses.
She has every reason to stay.
You cannot hold Her.
Love contains All.
She is Complete.
Love loves You.
You can do nothing to prevent Her.
You feel Her, despite Your struggles.
You will Love Her back.
Only when You choose.
She waits patiently for You.”
Joshua Kuebler, Strength for the Journey: Mystical Poetry & Spiritual Essays

“Forgiveness.
How hard it is to be Love.
Forgiving ourselves,
forgiving others,
forgiving ourselves for not forgiving others,
forgiving others for not forgiving us...
Love should not be such a painful struggle for us.
We yearn for Love so badly,
yet direct so much of our efforts on shoving it away.
Breathe,
breathe,
and breathe.
Hold those uncomfortable energies tightly,
accepting,
loving,
thanking them,
until that immense pain melts away.
It feels like you'll never feel better again,
it would be so much better to run
as far away from these energies & feelings as possible.
But then, they'll only be back later,
more tears,
more pain,
more heartache,
until we finally comfort those energies,
and thereby ourselves.”
Joshua Kuebler, Strength for the Journey: Mystical Poetry & Spiritual Essays

“Love merely asks us to be loving. There is no task list, no metrics, no
analysis. There isn’t time for all that worry when we are content with the
present moment.”

“If we change our mind, we must then change our behavior. We cannot
stop at mental improvements. And we must be very careful to avoid the
pitfall of merely hiding our behavior from ourselves, imagining ourselves to
be so much ’better off’, while changing nothing of substance in the physical
(and/or emotional) world of everyday life.”

“Imperfection is not a discrete state of its own. Imperfection is merely the
absence of Perfection, which can manifest in vastly disparate circumstances.
The path to Perfection is a seemingly endless spiral of personal educational
situations, ever focused on diminishing the degree of imperfection.”
