The Traveler!

The soul…eternal…connected…sharing…as one.
But just imagine being eternal…ageless…forever part of these multiverses.
A balance…at times physical…emotional…spiritual…independent, in the many forms taken.
A ‘life’ that goes on and on, forever seeking….something.
It cannot just ‘be’, for it is always absorbing, accepting from all around.
Otherwise it would stagnate, diminish and be absorbed into what ‘is’.
In all its ever journey’s it senses, touches, and experiences all around.
For a knowledge like no other, that thing that we all seek…even in our part ‘down here’.
All parts living a journey, to blossom, reveal and understand that path.
Cycles upon cycles, ever reaching to find that something, that meaning to sate that urge within.
Until our path is revealed, each time a blossoming in knowledge as that understanding is reached.
But where are we going? What purpose does a destination have in forever.
For if we found it, we would also stagnate, purpose released.
Then a traveler must be a purpose within itself, that constant journey, a journey to find self.
That place that is changing within, in each experience that we do.
Each time building self, that love within from those many understandings that they give.
Showing us ourselves in each passing moment…to be felt, realised…savored even.
We are travelers, moving, always moving…but within that movement blossoms a love,
even as a flower does, always changed, no two the same, but so beautiful within themselves.
So I bid you welcome fellow traveler, I greet you and share this moment in time.
May your travels enlighten, touch that soul, to begin another journey as each change brings a new love within.

    1. Thank you kind sir. We are on an incredible journey, blessed with so much that there is secrets within secrets, all out in the open. As each path is trod, experienced and understood, another piece of our hearts is enlightened πŸ˜€
      The day that I ‘touched’ up there, showed me something momentous…for in that moment was a beauty incomprehensible, and in fact, a part of what we will become. Thank you for the reblog, may your journey experience that traveler too πŸ˜€

    1. Heeeey! Thank you Kristin πŸ™‚
      I was ‘just’ thinking, and spirit brought something to the surface…something wonderful to see and feel…to be able to see the forest BECAUSE of the tree’s, so to speak πŸ˜€
      And I hope your traveling has touched that place too kind lady, underneath it all is a blessing…tend to the tree’s, and the forest will look after itself <3 πŸ™‚

        1. lol…my mom couldn’t shut me up Kristin πŸ˜€
          It was just a matter of focusing a little more on where my true heart was…not the one after ice creams on a hot day….er, everyday πŸ™‚
          I have been a little busy with my work, this is the hard bit where I have to think a lot :), but with some more effort I should be able to post more often after about Christmas time πŸ™‚
          Then I shall have a chat with spirit and start my book, that I was supposed to start before this project…hope I’m not in trouble ‘up there’ for being sidetracked πŸ™‚
          Pssst…missed you too <3 πŸ˜€

            1. Thank you Kristin, your words are appreciated with the love you always give. You have touched a place within yourself, and it shows in your poems, and the words you share.
              You are becoming that love because of your journey. Standing in your hearts truth as you speak, a path unlike any other in this world.
              And you mean a lot to me also my friend, you too showed me many things on our journey…you allowed me to stand in my heart, and be that truth also…the journey to an unconditional love. Namaste <3 πŸ™‚

  1. Words to ponder upon, Mark, thank you! Eternity is a long time and a concept that our minds truly do not fully grasp. We are here for only a “moment”, and then we move on. Love the way you wrote this post. Thank you! <3

    1. I suppose its one of those…’don’t see the forest for the tree’s’ things, and occasionally it is good to stand back and see it from another direction. Mind you, we’re pretty busy down here πŸ™‚
      Thank you very much Amy, your comments are always appreciated πŸ™‚

  2. Yes, the traveler! Brilliant Mark, I love this piece. Especially “But where are we going? What purpose does a destination have in forever.” We’re so funny setting our goals, and claiming to know our life purpose, yet experiencing the same lack of fulfillment when we attain our goals / dreams, only to then set another future goal…. the cycle continues. We are the purpose, the goal and the point. Can we not let that be enough? That’s what I’m currently trying for, but it’s the big unravelling, and informing of my mind whenever it kicks of, trying to grasp to future goals…. Thank you for your wisdom, which sets me straight on this glorious day!! Love Sharon xoxooox

    1. My pleasure Sharon. And yes, we are enough, it is when we finally accept that unconditional love of ourselves that we are finally at peace. A journey in spirit allowed me to touch what is ‘up there’ and it is indescribable, there are not enough words to give a real explanation of the total acceptance and love that is our natural state. But ‘down here’ we are being guided to understand that by what we go through. Even the trips and stumbles have great purpose, and in hindsight you can see by our journey, those things in our past, and gain wisdom in understanding them. At the time no, they just seemed like a mess of emotion going nowhere, but in truth they all teach….great love. It always comes back to that πŸ™‚

  3. Beautifully expressed Mark.. It is good to meet a fellow traveller.. We are morphing and moving as we regain our balance.. Some pausing, some rising, while others seem to stand still.. Yet even in the stillness of appearing fixed and static, progress is still being made,,
    I am thankful I am now climbing, and now peeling the layers as we learn to dig within to that knowledge that has always been present..

    The Gift of Now is in each Present moment.. May we all keep learning and growing Mark.. And I thank you for being part of my present journey my friend..
    Love and Blessings

    1. And it is my pleasure to be a part of your journey Sue. Your growth, in garden and heart has been beautiful to see and be a part of πŸ™‚
      Your gift is forever opening, even in those small moments of creation, the strings of a guitar or the planting of a seed πŸ™‚
      I’m looking forward to more sharing, within and without as you become more aware of your true journey Sue.
      Love and blessings to another light in this universe Sue, enjoy the journey. Namaste

  4. Absolutely beautiful, just like the kind traveler you are. You have inspired me in more ways than you’ll ever know. You’ve taught me things about myself, I never would have seen, myself. Always there to encourage and support me, in good times and the not-so-good times. I’m so very happy that I’ve had the opportunity to have crossed paths with such an amazing soul on my journey. XXXX πŸ™‚ Keep spreading all that love and kindness! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you kind lady, your words are appreciated and taken with the love that they are given. I do hope I’ve been able to annoy you :), to such an extend that you looked within and saw that beauty that has always been within my friend.
      We have many guides, whether ‘up above’ or within the many down here that always nudge us at exactly the right moment for us to understand our hearts a little more each time we go through something.
      We are all built on that love that we seek, blocked by the fears that we build, but with great purpose so we can re-create us by going through those fears so that we can see, truly see, and appreciate exactly who we are within.
      Thanks Tammy, and remember it can be a hard journey, but it is polishing the most beautiful jewel in the world…I promise πŸ™‚ Namaste

      1. You could never annoy me, but you know I try like hell to annoy you, in a loving manner……….of course. But, I can’t seem to annoy you, no matter how hard I try. I will keep trying, though. I am Wild Flower, after all………….right???? πŸ™‚ You’ve sent that healing energy, love, kindness, encouragement, support and all that other good stuff over here, whether I wanted it or not. LOL and, it works. So, keep sending. I’m not as advanced with all of this as you are, but I’m right there behind you. When you feel that little breeze on the back of your head and there is no “breeze.” Just know, that’s me. Just a little reminder that I’m still here, even though you may not have “heard” from me in awhile. I’m giving you that little nudge that you talk about…….All good things, don’t just come about, they take a lot of hard work and falling down, getting back up, starting over, and most importantly, never “really” giving up. I may say I’m giving up when I’m overly frustrated with life, in general, but you know me well enough to know those are just words and nothing more. You better inform me of when you are nearing 60!!!!!!!!! I would be so damn sad, after everything you’ve “given” to me, from your heart, to not be able to say a proper goodbye……………………………….I hope it’s not any time soon…………………sigh………………………I don’t know if I’d like to have that information about myself or not………………………………….that’s a hard one…………………maybe the “angels” will come back and tell you that they need to give you an extension because you still have some things to get polished up, before you go………….XX πŸ™‚ Namaste, my dear friend. I know those “angels” guided me right to you, or you to me, for a reason. Have a good day, dude!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        1. I was given that information for a very good reason Tammy. I feared death…as in really feared it, and it was restricting me in ‘living’, just as it does with all fears.
          So with great love I was asked to face my fear…and it set me free. I was shown my death and a spiritual world (in multiple ways), so that I could face my ‘physicality’ down here and release something that was holding me back.
          Now I can ‘see’ our journey down here, and spirit asked me to put it into this blog so that others who are ready to ‘see’ something within themselves can be guided. No two are the same, just as we aren’t ‘like’ anyone else, but the words can be a guide to give a little more understanding of our journey.
          And trust me Wild Flower, the journey down here, even though it can be very painful, gives a love like nothing else you have ever touched down here. When you ‘ascend’, the love and beauty that envelops you is the most complete feeling you will ever have BECAUSE of what you have experienced down here. One cannot be complete without the other. It’s like your empathy for another who is going through many sicknesses like yours BECAUSE you’ve been there and understand their journey. As above, so below πŸ™‚
          Many angels abound Tammy, just keep the music going, it’ll lead them right to you πŸ˜€

          1. I don’t think I can say that I’ve always, never been afraid of death, but I don’t really recall it having such a hold on me. I’m not even sure exactly when it was that I started saying that I truly do not fear death. It’s probably something I came to terms with, with being sick, and knowing that none of us never really know when, but when we’re sick, we tend to believe that our time here may not be as long…… It’s a good feeling to have because I know whatever happens to me, I’ll truly be okay, so much more than okay, actually. Leaving this earth is going to be so much more than “okay.” I’ll no longer be sick and I’ll be reunited with all my loved one’s that have gone before me. Now, what I do fear and have for a very long time because of the many losses and trauma (just part of MY journey) is that of anyone I love or care about dying. I really struggle with this one. I know they’re in the ultimate place, but I miss them sooooo much. I think I grieve, or I should say I know I grieve way too long. I do suffer from something called complicated/complex grief. This stems from all these deaths starting when I was only 8, the first being my dad, who was killed by a drunk driver. Followed by my 14 year old nephew, then my brother (my nephew’s father)……………………I miss my brother, tremendously, but I know he’s much happier and in a much better place, with his son and his father (my dad) Makes me happy for my brother and my nephew, but at the same time, I have days that I just can’t hardly stand the pain of the sorrow I feel. It’s truly opened my eyes to the fact that not only do sick and old people die. Age doesn’t matter………………..When we’re done here, we’re done and ready to move on to that place of THE ULTIMATE LOVE!!!!!!!! When people say, live each day as if it’s your last, like we’re going to be dead one day, and nothing more, I just kind of laugh, inside. I try to live each day to the fullest of my ability, and that’s not much, some days, most days, but I’m not worried………………………………………Only “better” things up ahead in the distance. NOTHING TO FEAR………………………………….My “visitor” paid me a visit, like I said, at just the right time in my life. At a time when I was sicker than my “usual” sick, and in the hospital. At the time, it made me wonder if I was going to die while I was in the hospital that time. But, after all that happened, I had absolutely no fear. I didn’t rush around and try to make everything “right.” I felt a calm, I’ve never felt before, and I was okay to just be…………………….I was going to be okay if I woke up tomorrow and I was going to be okay it I woke up “somewhere” else, tomorrow. Didn’t matter………………..I didn’t spend a lot of time dwelling on my past or worrying about tomorrow. I just went on, knowing that I was going to be okay!!!!! I was just at such peace………………………………………and I still am,as far as when one journey ends and another begins…………………….Namaste………………. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ You really got me going, dude. I could talk about this all day and all night!!!!!

    1. My pleasure Michele, and thank you. May your journeys always surprise you, give you beautiful views, and always wrap you in the understanding of its love kind lady πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Willow Marie. And yes, a meaningful journey in each step that we take, or not, always changing to a new perspective, a new way of being, constantly creating self πŸ™‚
      Thank you for sharing kind lady, may your journey enfold you in its love πŸ™‚

    1. Right, first things first….hello Kristine πŸ˜€ , I’ll finally call you by your proper name (I hope I have that right, I’ve become so used to calling you Kay πŸ™‚ ).
      And secondly, thank you for your lovely comment. It is a forever journey, and being the impatient types that we are, I think it must teach that golden lesson in spades….patience πŸ™‚
      Just as your post on ‘beep beep’ is about teaching empathy from another standpoint, an unconditional one instead of the ‘other’ way πŸ™‚
      Always much adventures about love. Always seemingly bringing us back inside to what we truly are, flowering each time in each understanding of our journey, regardless of what we are actually doing.
      Thank you sharing Kristine, unconditionally not beeped, and appreciated πŸ™‚

  5. Thank you for this. It was a reminder to me to be more in the present moment, because I seem to spend too much time in the future or past. There is no destination really. Just a string of experiences perhaps.

    1. Hi Susan, it is a constant movement with so many inputs that it makes us shake our heads at times. But we are never given too much, even though at times it really feels like it πŸ™‚
      As for the future, I peg a few spots and get ready to change them at a moments notice, and that has purpose or we would just wander endlessly, reacting instead of creating.
      The past on the other hand has great purpose. It is the holder of great wisdom…and…it can tell you your future, and others.
      When I finally saw what drove my major fear in life, and understood it, I can now see that in others. They call me a soothsayer, prophet and a million other labels, but in truth it is only my understanding of self.
      All fears block, and for a very good reason, it allows us to slowly dig until that understanding comes through, and that realisation teaches us many things….empathy because of what we went through, appreciation for the same reason, but most of all, that love of ourselves. And it is that, that will show you your future.
      Break down any fears, and behind them is a world you will not believe has always been there. Just sitting and waiting until it is time, and each time brings you much closer to that unconditional love.
      Enjoy the journey, it IS done with much love, I promise πŸ™‚

  6. This was so beautiful, Mark. It reads like a poem or a mantra. I think I’ll adopt the latter and tuck it your words into a safe spot for a frequent revisit.

    “We are travelers, moving, always moving…but within that movement blossoms a love,
    even as a flower does, always changed, no two the same, but so beautiful within themselves”

    My favorite lines…seriously beautiful post, Mark. Thank you.
    Namaste πŸ™‚

    1. And thank you for your lovely comment Michelle. We are always on the move, experiencing so much, and even in the hard stuff it shapes us, always changing us and giving an understanding to slowly bring that love to the fore.
      And I suppose in this ‘forever’ journey there is one thing that we do learn….’patience’….I say to the lady with the ‘on’ button stuck πŸ˜€
      I say that with love Michelle, maybe all your other journeys have been as a monk in a full life, silent meditation on a mountain top somewhere, and this one is a little quicker to shake out the cobwebs πŸ˜€
      Thank you for sharing Michelle, always appreciated from the land of baseball, gardens, chainsaws and ornery wabbits! πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you kind lady πŸ™‚ I was just pondering our journey, and the urge came upon me to put pen to paper πŸ™‚
      Thank you for sharing Trini, And very glad to have met you, and your heart, at this moment in our travels πŸ™‚ <3
