Note: The Maxims of Delta came to me in 2004 and were once on my now closed MySpace. They were resurrected on here and look for the Narrative Poem telling the tale of Delta’s Journey along the Road, coming soon.
The Maxims of Delta¦
Throw away the shackles inhibiting the change you desire to manifest in life. They only exist if you accept them.
Personal and social change begin when you choose for them to happen. After making that choice life works with you to accomplish change.
Do not fear. Fear hinders the natural flow of living. Fear leads to illogical behavior.
Allow for change. Change at times seems to be negative. Change the perspective from one of fear to one of self-love. Think of change as growth. As children we wanted to grow and to know. As adults we have grown complacent, we no longer desire to change.
Recapture the excitement of the simplicity within each moment. As children something so small as finding a pin can bring joy.
Recapture the awareness we had as children. Children live and breathe life. Many of us live and breathe the thoughts that we have overanalyzed. We are lost in thought. Thought is good. It is bad when it prevents us from experiencing the simple joy within in each moment. No need to wait.
Chance’ um, the time, your time, all time is now.
The Second Verse…
Something only has meaning if one gives it meaning. Give meaning to something positive.
Believe that you can do the impossible. As children, we fell many times before even standing. And then we fell again. Stand back up. Do not give up.
Nothing is random. The weird coincidences (coinkydinks) are not coincidence. Life is speaking to you. Listen to what it is saying.
Everything happens for a reason. These are parts of a lesson. Ever notice repeat lessons. Ask oneself what the lesson is and what one is doing for the lesson to repeat itself. Master the lesson.
Help others. Recognize when you can and cannot. Remember, a person can only be helped if s/he wishes to be.¨
Talk to the earth. It is connected to you and hears you. Everything is connected. Particles of stars make up who you are. You return to the earth. The earth will one day pass. Your physical essence will carry into something else.
Nurture your spirit. Run, surf, breathe, eat, whatever it takes, find what it is that nurtures your spirit. We all have different vehicles that will take us to that place. And difference is amazing.
We are all looking at the same picture. Our different values and experiences contribute to a different interpretation and explanation of the same picture. That does not make any one interpretation than another. They are all unique. That is what makes life beautiful.
A Third Chapter
How does one know what is wrong? If one hesitates, cannot look another in the eye, has to question it is wrong. Strive to do and live what is right. How does know what is right? Ask the heart. The heart knows. Love yourself fully and your heart will guide you.
Doing what your heart tells you may not always be easy. Listen anyway. Your heart is in touch with the essence of the source.
Robert Frost once wrote, I took the road less traveled and that made all the difference. That road may have been harder and it may be different than that others took and advised you to take. Better to go down that road and know then to go down the road others said to and not know.
In every challenge, always remember, I love you. It is echoed in every form and felt throughout. It is the gift given. The echo is there. It asks nothing in return and is given freely. Remember, I love you. The source communicates this to you always.
Life is about connections.
We change the world with each moment. The past creates the future. The only thing present is the self. Work for change, for peace.
The closer one gets to what it is that is their dream, the harder the journey gets. Make the journey.
One is never truly alone. Everything is inside the one. Know the one.
The Fifth Sun
The thought echoes in everyone’s mind. What is your legacy?
Legacy is linked with one’s passion. Find your passion. Live it.
Nurture the spirit…
i feel as though my time has come
the wave i ride is the one to be a part of
yet a part of me is tired
a part of me is weak
i suppose it is the balance of life that
allows me to see both sides
forcing me to choose the middle
my path, to walk through the fire and the ocean
all at once
i will never lay down my sword as it is only mine to wield
thus spoke Delta
Delta looked out on the horizon and saw something…
a warrior walked slowly,
sword dragging behind him
but his pace was only slow
because he’d traveled for a long time
and his head down
he liked to see where his steps were leading
the sword was not aloft for there was no need to use it at this time
that’s the thing with life
the many battles he’d won, lost or otherwise
were never viewed from his perspective by others
couldn’t be understood by them
so while to the others
it looked as though he failed
he had fallen and would continue
that so long as he stood back up
after each fall, each loss
so long as he did not stop
that simplicity of being,
would always travel with him
And like a veil being lifted
The darkness became light
And Delta saw that he was
Still wearing a mask
How could he teach?
What could he relay?
Who could he help?
When he thought he was starting to know
He shook his head with a laugh and
Realized he knew nothing
And in knowing nothing
He was truly beginning to
Leaving behind the cloud that filled his brain
Parting the curtain that shaded his eyes
For as much as Delta had wished to help the world
He began to help himself
In so doing
The end became
And the beginning the end for
Now is the only time that matters
To the outsider it appeared
But he knew
That it was only through the one
Did the words flow
No longer resisting
The true essence
