What the eyes shall seek shall see

All Giza Pyramids
Today is the day, when I shall finally be granted that which I have read and seek for so long.
And thus the journey begins…
Mounted high enough so as to seize the view well ahead of me, in this instant, I am slowly moving with the motion of the desert beast and in a path that must have bore its steps a thousand times and which now gladly welcomes mine.
The feeling is alive and filled within a heart that beats like a child, when she is told she can fly to a place high and far above the stars. And it is in the same span of time that at once, I become aware that such junctures only come around at specific hours in this life and consequently, away from all eyes, I gracefully send my words of gratitude to the sky.
I am now in my element to the fullest. I am now in the center of our earth.
And whilst continuing to move forward onto the yellow sand, the final destination that bears the grandest algebra and equally so, the biggest enigma of all ages, finally faces me.
And at this moment, what was previously felt in the chest, whilst imagining the scene that would present itself to me, can now conclusively be witnessed in all its splendor and therein be plainly described as the ‘grandeur’ of what the will of man can achieve, when man himself understands the universe and its divine rhythm.

Le voyage

Phoenix_by_bapabst
And on the eve of this calm summer night,
Whilst prayers are being sent forth to and fro high above,
From the oak tree that is your place of rest,
I can now see you flying high into the sky, like the Simurhg
On your way to a world you have never seen….and which has never seen you either.
And once you descend to the land, it is with the eyes of a child that you shall see a plentiful of divine sights enacted from the voyage,
Amazing heights, where the horizon will suddenly seem as clear as an Alabaster stone;
Winds that shall whisper louder and remind you of their existence and meanings;
The grass under your feet that breathes Gaia in all its splendor and energy.
And when the journey will have brought the fruit of its seed and knowledge will have sank into your mind,
You shall return to your departure point no longer as the knight who wishes to conquer the queen and her kingdom but as a true king who has conquered it all and now strives to begin life as a phoenix bird !
