The Tilted Yellow Dharma

•March 20, 2016 • Leave a Comment

Be with those who help your being.

Don’t sit with indifferent people, whose breath

comes cold out of their mouths.

Not these visible forms, your work is deeper.

 

A chunk of dirt thrown in the air breaks to pieces.

If you don’t try to fly,

and so break yourself apart,

you will be broken open by death,

when it’s too late for all you could become.

 

Leaves get yellow. The tree puts out fresh roots

and makes them green.

Why are you so content with a love that turns you yellow?

— Rumi

Portait of a Man with a Hole in his Head

•March 13, 2016 • Leave a Comment

If you want a lover
I’ll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I’ll wear a mask for you
If you want a partner, take my hand, or
If you want to strike me down in anger
Here I stand
I’m your man

If you want a boxer
I will step into the ring for you
And if you want a doctor
I’ll examine every inch of you
If you want a driver, climb inside
Or if you want to take me for a ride
You know you can
I’m your man

Ah, the moon’s too bright
The chain’s too tight
The beast won’t go to sleep
I’ve been running through these promises to you
That I made and I could not keep
Ah, but a man never got a woman back
Not by begging on his knees
Or I’d crawl to you baby and I’d fall at your feet
And I’d howl at your beauty like a dog in heat
And I’d claw at your heart, and I’d tear at your sheet
I’d say please (please)
I’m your man

And if you’ve got to sleep a moment on the road
I will steer for you
And if you want to work the street alone
I’ll disappear for you
If you want a father for your child
Or only want to walk with me a while across the sand
I’m your man

— Leonard Cohen

Blind Willie McTell

“Well, God is in His heaven
And we all want what’s His
But power and greed and corruptible seed
Seem to be all that there is
I’m gazing out the window
Of the St. James Hotel
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell”

— Bob Dylan

“I’m gonna preach these blues
and I’m gonna choose my seat and sit down.
I’m gonna preach these blues
and I’m gonna choose my seat and sit down.
But, when the Spirit comes, I want you to…”

In the City of Angels

I see your hair is burning-

Hills are full of fire.

If they say I never loved you,

You know they are a liar.

The Bridge Between the Sun and the Moon.

•July 31, 2015 • Leave a Comment

Now there’s a wall between us,
something there’s been lost.
I took too much for granted;
I got my signals crossed.
If I could only turn back the clock
to when God and she were born-
“Come in,” she said, “ and I’ll give ya
shelter from the storm.”

– Bob Dylan

“There is a life-force within your soul, seek that life.

There is a gem in the mountain of your body, seek that mine.

O traveler, if you are in search of That,

Don’t look outside, look inside yourself and seek That.”
