The world is population of not merely possibilities, but realities in wait.  What walls exist between us and our most desired stage is imaginary, not even theoretical.  There is no theory, only the absolute in that there is no wall.  That too, I find wildly comical, baffling.  How whenever an obstacle is even thought of, there is either incremental or definite and decided surrender.

This morning, I’m awake.

This morning, I See.

Tell yourself that this morning you deny all that you think denies you.  You are the author of your story, your pages.  “Bonjour!” What do you think?  What are you thinking?  What is the typist to this note have in his flurrying head?  Everything.  ‘Cause I can have everything.  I’m there, while here, soon to be in the There.  Thoughts are catalytic, all in my circulation and current inner oration.
