1 January 2016 - Living The Edge of Tomorrow

Living at the Edge of Tomorrow in 2016

I began last year into a new cycle of my life
Towards the light of truth.
Living a life by choice, not by chance,
Listening only to my inner voice,
Not the random thoughts of others;
Without any delusions and illusions of false religions, myths, Superstitions, man-made beliefs, lies and more true lies,
Or the false promises of competition and domination,
Celestial hope and economic exploitation.

In 2016, I shall continue the pursuit of truth
Beyond conflated myths, facts, and fiction,
To discover the true faith that bridges there to here.
Faith has strengthen as unbelief & disbelief debunked,
Knowledge and wisdom overcome delusions & illusions,
Happiness discovered by sharing joy and well-being with others,
As life's journey continues at the edge of tomorrow;

In 2016 at the edge of tomorrow,
Many will wish that tomorrow will not come;
For them, tomorrow is a dreamy mirage,
A mere extension of their yesterday.

Wake up in 2016;
Make changes, not excuses,
Re-create your tomorrow
And banish tomorrow's inevitability
Of broken hearts and shattered dreams,
Of unrequited love and promises unfulfilled,
Of disappointments and pain.
Of lies and more true lies,
Of elusive happiness and dreamy mirages.
2016 shall bring new pathways and fresh challenges
And unimaginable opportunities;
Doors to unexplored prospects shall open,
Embark fresh journeys to the other side.

Seize the moment - carpe diem?
But, why?  No, wait.
Be patience - life is short, why rush through?
Life’s an adventure, not a race; 
Pause to smell the flowers,
Appreciate creation diversity,
Understand the multicultural palette
In life's awesome mix of trials and tribulations,
Embrace the mystery of pain and suffering
Along moments of rare joy and happiness.

Questions the very purpose of Creation;
Can there be peace without wars?
Joy & happiness without pain & sadness?
Abundance without poverty?
Living without sickness & disease?
Sharing without exploiting?
Collaboration without domination?
Loving without hurting or being hurt?
To live like no tomorrow?

Yes, we can.
Just giving from what we have;
Just be happy adding value for a little less profit;
Just being more gracious and less calculative;
Just be joyful to assist and serve without gain;
Just go make poverty history;
Just a little more love for your loved ones;
Just pray for the power of love
To vanquish the love for power.
Just choose to do the things that others won’t
So that you can always do the things that they can’t;

At the edge of tomorrow, peep into your future
To live for today like no tomorrow.
Today, surrender your desires, greed and ambitions.
Give up this life today;
Leave the life you have been pursuing
And embrace the life that has been waiting for you,
Letting go the things passed for they are past,
Free yourself and choose freedom for life.

Expect nothing in return, Know that life is no house of cards, Believe not in promises ancient or recent, Gratitude is not a quid pro quo, Your efforts are rarely appreciated, Nor your brilliant talents discovered.Least understood shall be your love.  And you can be hurt only by those you love. 

Yesterday is past and finished,
Decide what your tomorrow can be
At the edge of tomorrow today.

Standing at the edge of 2016,
I look afar, distant, up and down,
Squinting my eyes for tomorrow’s light.
I could feel the wind across my face,
The breeze of hope from tomorrow, I ponder.
A distant noise beckons in my bones,
A rumbling, pulsing and purring voice;
So surreal and not seems human.
I could see it with my heart
And feel in my mind.
Filling the space of our distance from here to there;
Out of a sudden, I could see it
Staring back at me, oh my tomorrow.

The life awaiting me beckons;
And today shall begin again
The first day of the rest of my life
As I live the edge of tomorrow.
