Now is our time, as it has always been But we've been blind, and so we haven't seen that only the now exists, and we live in it only. Now is your time, as it has always been But you've been blind, and so you haven't seen that only the now exists, and you live in it only. Now is my time, as it has always been But I've been blind, and so I haven't seen that only the now exists, and I live in it only.

Traveling in time in all dimensions of space being everywhere, being everything Traveling in space in all dimensions of time being who I was, I am or shall I…? Will I become what you thought I should be or will I just be? Will I become what I thought I should be or will I just be? Trying so hard to become what I am so will I just be Trying so hard to become what I am so will I just be Traveling in space, In all dimensions of time Skies are turning black or white or blue Travelling in time, In all dimensions of space Choices seem to mean much more than they do Will I become what you thought I should be or will I just be? Will I become what I thought I should be or will I just be? Trying so hard to become what I am so will I just be Trying so hard to become what I am so will I just be?

The longing for the kiss that never came The longing for a touch without a shame The need to be approved by you and seen for real is tearing me apart… The longing for the warmth that we once knew The longing for just being here with you The need to be approved by you and seen for real is tearing me apart I want to scream out loud how do I really feel But scared that you’ll depart, and leave me bleeding here, alone without goodbye Take my heart with you, and let me helplessly just die Laugh at my reaction to your acts, For sure, I will just lie.

Mirrors 04:11
The mirrors around you are shining You open your eyes, and the mirrors around you are silent and clear, or dusty and full of fear Don’t let the mirrors haunt you. You look through the mirrors Don’t think twice The moment you hesitate, you lose sight Just stare at those eyes, that shine with the light inside and don’t become a stranger.

Reading all the unwritten signs you are Listening to to the unspoken words Seeing far between what’s between the lines Watching scenes that never took place And even when they tell you that the danger isn’t over you’d rather stay than run away Reality has never challenged what you chose to see Why not choosing to be free?? Reading all the unwritten signs you are Finding ways to be in control Always taking three steps before your time and you’ve only started to crawl And even when they tell you that the danger isn’t over you’d rather stay than run away Reality has never challenged what you chose to see Why not choosing to be free?

וכשילך מפה, אז מה אשאר אותו חלל פעור היה גם קודם, בלעדיו הו...איחוד הגוף הוא אשליה מתוקה כאילו שהיה דבר בינינו, באמת בור קסמים חופר לו ממשות בתוך תוכי הוא מנסה להתמלא בחומר ולא יתמלא יומם וליל הוא מתמלא בחומר ולא יתמלא גם, כשצלל הוא לעומקי נשמתי כאילו לא היה דבר בינינו, באמת בור קסמים חופר לו ממשות בתוך תוכי הוא מנסה להתמלא בחומר, ולא יתמלא יומם וליל הוא מתמלא בחומר, ולא יתמלא ולא יתמלא וכשילך מפה, אז מה אשאר אותו חלל פעור היה גם קודם, בלעדיו

All the leaves are falling and the trees are standing naked there is nothing they can do about it only wait.. until the winter disappears gather all the strength they have against their fears to be lonely to be bare until the spring comes back again All the grass is buried in its undercover yellow and beneath the silence life is breathing through its veins and it waits until the winter disappears gathers all the strength it has against its fears to be buried in the dark until the spring comes back again

Close your eyes, and look at me Shut your mouth, and tell me what you feel I don't need ears to hear you Lose your arms, and hold me Swallow your tongue, and kiss me now There is no world between us Fighting to define Giving names to nameless moments What is this moment Slowly breath the air within Hold your breath, don't worry, I am here There is no world between us Fighting to define Giving names to nameless moments What is this moment?

This being human is a guest house Every morning a new arrival A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they are a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice. meet them at the door laughing and invite them in. Be grateful for whatever comes. because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.

Just Wait 04:21
It’s flooding all your veins It takes your breath away Instead of always run You might start having fun Your default is to flight Your body thinks it’s right Don’t run away just yet Just be with it and wait Just wait… just wait… The danger’s coming fast Emotions to confess Don’t run away just yet Just be with it and wait just wait… just wait… You think therefor you are But truth is that so far You’ve always ran away Why don’t you walk the way?
