This piece was written in collaboration with the light-bringer Lykke, my dear friend whose prose inspired a deluge of thoughts and actions, as well the words below. My sincere thanks to her for all we have discussed and all we still have to learn from each other.
Lykke: Milestones… When my day starts here Your day already is on the verge of its end point. The magic of milestones… When you look at the first sparks of the sun, which says hello to a new bright day, It's time for someone in another world with another culture to say goodbye To the last lights in the horizon of life… This is how it works. However, The magic of "humanity" And what the hell, We call it "peace" and "friendship", Always speaks louder than milestones… Yes. I always BELIEVE that friendship is as pure as a fresh air and as powerful as cool water in the Sahara, Which can connect everyone To each other Beyond any culture or any time or date differences… Now "the world" (this old man) Needs more than anything To take a sip of friendship and let the veins of life fill with happiness. I believe any small movement can make a great typhoon in this universe, Just like a butterfly 🦋
Auroraboros: Milestones… Markers to indicate Relative proximity, Where others have been before As well as Where we are headed. Waking to New light falling through the frozen pane of glass Separating what is in From what is Not, At the same time connecting What is here To what is not. This is how it has always been. However, The world turns faster these days And our voices are so loud, They often travel faster than the light can bend. Yes. I have always believed That the trivialities of life Fear and hatred Anger and violence Are as stones falling Through an ocean Of Love and understanding Radiating across and throughout the void of space and time. Now The child grows and greys and dies And is re-born In the words between You & I As hearts beat in unison With the sound of friendship. I believe That each and every word Each movement of the human heart Is a milestone In a journey that spans time itself Culminating in Holy union Of heart Of mind Of soul.
