Walking the Edge of Time


Everyone walks the changing edge of time searching for balance and justiceHumanity is an exquisite weightless jewel that sparkles with enormous energy. Don't underestimate the power of your words. Choose happy. Every day is a good day to feel the gentle kiss of desire and imagine stories. Remember to move to music and to enjoy the sanctity of silence. You will find what you want.

Searching For Balance and Justice We Find Love
Sensuality leaves us breathless to listen to the balancing beat of our hearts. We are born to realize our dreams, not to be perfect. When we depend on our strength of character, while exploring tastes of excitement, it's easy to dance with the scent of desire and touch the heart of kindness.  

Thinking sensually, we sync with music of change, while always marching to rhythms of Justice.

Justice is not political or drawn by lines on a map. It's easy to recognize. Feel justice when you communicate. Be open to the rhythm and peace of beauty. Laugh more. Do what is right. Notice the balancing beat of your heart. Your energy is an important part of the sparkle of Life. There is always something to be thankful for.

At the edge of time, thinking and language change. The respected artist Mary Engelbreit Riles posted an old Ben Franklin quote, "Justice will not be served until those unaffected are as outraged as those who are." In 1777, 'outrage' was respectable. Today, ‘outrage’ is an irrational state of mind that inspires violence. Don’t let outrage deny justice. Instead, dance with your passions until they turn to wisdom. Then reply with all the power of your soul. Always move towards the light.

In the 1960’s, the great Martin Luther King Jr. said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." The word "threat" wasn't personal in the 60's. But today the word 'threat' conjurs fear, which is why we need to find our edge. Fear is a bully. The edge is where we meet each other with equal mind and spirit. It’s where we are curiously driven to find balance, to take on more, see from a fresh perspective and have another taste of the wonder of living. Injustice is always wrong. That’s a fact.

The edge can't be corrupted. No matter what we do to it or call it, the edge is always Love.  John Lennon, who was so far ahead of his time, said, "If someone thinks that Love and Peace is a cliché that must have been left behind in the '60's, that's his problem. Love and Peace are eternal."

Love is our skill of walking the edge of time together. To be human is a ‘skill’ of sensuality and common sense. I heard a robot manufacturer talk about how hard is is to teach robots to balance on two legs. We have skills we don't know about because we take them for granted. Notice what you notice. Be authentic. Steve Jobs said, "If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking." Life is a gift of variety, opportunity and sensuality. Seeking balance is sensual thinking. Justice is where we find peace.

  1. Beautiful, though I can't quite agree we're a weightless jewel. It feels like we have a combined weight that could bring the whole thing down... it feels as if the weight of our injustice can't be truly lightened; but individual & combined acts of mercy and compassion can do that, even if it feels like a drop in the bucket.
