Braving the Days – Observations by Jordannah Elizabeth


It is neither here nor there. The systematic assumptions of circular realities lying in the depths of small communities can be healthy if communicated with care and a sincere effort to understand what should and should not be assumed. Observations, though, can be steeped in wisdom and inspiration, or consequently, the source of turmoil of the inner vision brought on by inaccurate processing. It is neither here nor there, but somewhere floating within infinite time-lapsed realms that are not aware of consciousness, only being. They live by laws that have been attempted to be calculated but only prove that time has very little to do with everything that is going on around us.

We cannot see everything, but the things we can see with the gifts that are our eyes can cultivate observations, which are instances that we take in and organize like small puzzles which manifest stories and narratives that can very well drive us mad, or towards greater knowledge and peace.

I have observed the strength of one’s hands – the way my fingers and palms rest between and     in the center of the same appendages, which are much larger than mine. And when my fingers become restless and desire to move and adjust, the task is almost impossible due to the strength and weight of the larger hand, which sits idol, never intending to force my hand into any battle or despair. This is the nature of Earth. If a small thing interlocks with something larger, it must understand that it will take effort and force to move compared to the larger thing who can hold things in place, and mold things without a thought.

For the small thing, this experience mustn’t be seen and approached as a danger because the larger thing is simply at rest. Mistakes happen when one panics. The smaller thing must simply send miniature messages that it desires to move and in many cases, the best cases, the large thing will oblige and release its unbeknownst grip.

I observe. And I believe that there is no such thing as weakness, only Earthly misunderstandings, misinformation, miscommunication, and miscalculations..

On other planes, everything is perfect. There are no negatives, nothing is mistaken. Knowledge and information are disseminated in a completely different manner that is foreign and unfathomable for the human mind to decipher.

Nonetheless, again, it is neither here nor there. Whatever observations we make and interact with only truly matter to the beholder, and whatever consequences are produced from the stories and conclusions we create from our observations, we should accept them with pleasure, fortitude and the infinite possibilities that unfold.
