I want to be!

I want to sit on the rooftops of another world while the sun spreads its wings on its flight to the other side; I want to watch as a dusky night descends from the hues of pink and lilac, and sometimes pale shades of turquoise.

I want to be overwhelmed by the confusion of wondering which side of the horizon we're standing on; and which one flies around us.

I want to merge with this one-ness of up and down; sky and ground.

I want ego to know that it will lose its place - that place is a material thing, really. I want spirit to know that it belongs to You, eternal.

How foolish is this ego trap: Spirit knows, of course...

I want to sit on rooftops of your world, still. Feeling the glory of love's raindrops washing me of my inhibitions.

I want to close my eyes and dream; and then open them to the realisation that the dream is tangible as ever.

Difficult, but not impossible.

I want to see how abstract presence can become a solid reality; feel the sand of promise run through my fingers and fall at my feet in a sea of wholeness.

I want to dream.
I want to feel.
I want to live.
I want to be.

Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do... inspirational post and seems like you have the key of vitamin "I" which will unlock everything directionally yet in a very abstract fun way :)

I've graduated from i want to i am. Such as i am the evolution of the species. I am the result of your constant struggle to walk upright, i am the beauty you imagined beyond your cave paintings. I am.

As I read this there was an image on Paris in my mind...of a specific morning when I awoke to a pink and lilac skyline and the stillness of the city was emphasized by the noise of doves flying from terrace to terrace and there was a calmness...the promise of a new day :D
