Musing in the Glade - Ancient Song

Inside it seems there is some kind of balance
finally - to see,
and some kind of new logic,
an ancient song,
uncommon sense.

The peace of the Glade is not always there in real life -
can it be trusted to be enough if I go that way?

Is solitude/gathering/idealism ideal?
Will it sustain me?

To withdraw from common judgement
and see in new ways,
to reach into the ancient and find food there -
that is the way and the rich life.

The perilous path that spawns the changes,
ridden and trodden by those who choose it,
or it chooses you,
depending on everything and nothing.

I sit in the sunshine glade and breathe,
with closed eyes
and a red glow.

discordance comes from the gap
between 'what you know'
and what you 'need to know'.
to explore this silent chasm
is to seek Enlightenment;

to embrace a myriad of solutions
is to Learn;

to meditate and value is to gain Knowledge;

the journey nurtures Wisdom.

I Like Monica thank you Faucon for Eskiyali's words to "Musing in the Glade-
Ancient song"

Wise and true words..
I like the line
" To meditate and value is to gain knowledge and the journey nurtures Wisdom ...
