The word of the day is “Adventure”

  1. an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activityengage in hazardous and exciting activity, especially the exploration of unknown territory.Often when I need to ponder on word of the day I look to the language itself and find the latin root of the words… To me latin is our language in its purest form, and you can find enlightening true meaning in much the way you can find the meaning in Chinese characters… for example Loyalty (忠) is a combination of “center (中)” and “heart (心)”. When you break that down you don’t even have to know the word for “loyal” you just have to understand it means something is at the center of your heart. Latin roots allow us to often break down english into its obvious true meaning as well.

    today I found the latin root “venture”: which means dare to do something or go somewhere that may be dangerous or unpleasant. This is the excitement that gives the word “adventure” it’s true meaning… risk… We all know that higher risk in life means higher reward if we succeed (otherwise no one would ever take the risk).

    When we talk about business venture like the purchasing of a condo at a resort that we are now discussing investing in, we are looking at “brave” individuals who know and accept a certain amount of calculated risk in order to experience high levels of success. I have said before bravery is not the lack of fear, its being afraid and daring to do something anyway.

    A question comes to mind when we talk about life’s adventure, and read about “returning to love”, and the notion of “free love” that we discussed last night. Should my love be only yours? Should your love be only mine? I think of our children, our parents, your brother, my sister… Of course your love isn’t only mine. We go to the source of the universe being love, how can you channel that all to me without some spilling over to those around us. The goal is allowing it to flow through us, accept all we receive and give all we can give. Yes, it is a romantic notion that you are the only thing in the world that I love… but my daughter can melt me with a word, my son can torture me with his sadness. My mother and father can hurt me with their disapproval and disappointment… I love them. I can’t deny that I love them. The opposite of love isn’t hate, it is “indifference”, when we stop caring all-together we no longer love someone.

    This weekend we went to an exciting resort and explored pieces of ourselves we often keep hidden. You have met many of my closest friends in these places… People that I loved once. The very few people who stuck with me through the lowest points of my life. The very few who were there for me when I was in the most pain I have ever been in… As we saw in the past with old very close friends ignoring us, there are people who chose not to be there when I needed them… people who you hold more anger towards than even i do, because they hurt the man you love.

    The risk associated with this adventure of love (the ultimate risk we take in life) is high, and some people will reveal conditions that become unreasonable… We have discussed this several times over the years, first saying “all our love is reserved”… but then realizing “I see you… there you are” is where we reserve this special bond… We can say “love you” to a close friend, and mean it. Like the word Namaste – the light in me recognizes the light in you. I can appreciate the similar shared aesthetics I have with others… We are handing people acceptance, we are allowing them, and in doing so we are giving someone the power to reject us, to heap conditions on their friendship. Yes there is risk in that adventure. However we temper that by being indifferent if they don’t like us or want to be around us. We don’t sit around moping when “friends” show up after not answering our texts, and then avoid us all night. We don’t care, since we have each other we don’t seek any approval or acceptance of those who would give us the gift of obvious rejection, rather than pretend to be friends and then treat us like crap.

    Even a couple I introduced to one another and “setup” who have been together for years now and I believe will end up married… even though they have been there for me and have seen all the magic of us coming together, they could never comprehend the power we wield together. Even on my birthday when I said something about the “power of the day, and how easily I was manifesting what I wanted”, he responded “I admire your enthusiasm buddy”… forever the skeptic, forever the “smartest man in the room”… he will be forcing his will on the universe instead of creating it. They have also distanced themselves from me when I was at my worst, always making sure I knew they were there for me should I choose the right path I wasn’t ready for yet… the path to you… But they loved me too much to watch me suffer as I took steps away from ever finding you, so they stopped watching my journey until I woke up and saw your light and set off on my new adventure… finding you.

    My friend Baunfire… even though I trust her, knowing she would never abandon me, never hurt me, always be there when I need her, and maybe even kill for me… I don’t share her aesthetics… I am not a BDSM submissive, I am not a BDSM dominant. I don’t find pleasure in comfort after torture, I don’t want to roll around in blood and don’t find sensuality in pain. I am not turned on by her body being molded into rubber and severed and turned into a bloody mangled corpse torso that men can use as a sex toy. I don’t enjoy the dark places her mind likes to use as a playground… I am the sun, I play in the light… I can’t understand that word of dark dungeons and choose not to try.

    So we must remember what Joel and Murray are telling us… the word of the day is adventure… It isn’t fear, it isn’t trepidation, it isn’t concern, it’s not caution… There nothing like Smurf or Strategy... When we think of “adventure” we are talking successfully navigating known dangers in order to drink in life, experience the excitement, enjoy the fun… Like flying down white water Rapids or bungee jumping off a bridge… We embark on a grand adventure placing faith in our love… You have asked to keep me for the first time in a long time, and when I ask if you will marry me you have once again started to respond “every day”…

    We must remember to return to love, to realize we are all one soul experiencing life from different perspectives. The only safety gear we need on this adventure is a realization… we should attempt to allow everyone to be… to love them for who they are in order to help return them to the source as well (especially if we are not going to be a part of that journey for them)… We know that we are one source fractured across the cosmos all attempting to return home, return to the center where all our aesthetics are accepted… where the love of all things resides… to do that we must agree to accept, to surrender to love… then, like in surrender we must never miss the forest for the trees… even if we appreciate the unique beauty of each and every one of them.

    You are the forest love. This morning on our way home from another grand adventure you told me I am your sun, and I responded to you that you are the world I shine on. You are my entire universe, my center, my home. My children, my parents, my friends, they all live inside this universe in the 4th dimension… They mingle with us through the transfer of energy (energy is the 5th dimension). Yet you ARE who I am. You create the man you love by allowing him to exist in this form and playful personality… you are my reflection of all I wish to be in your eyes. You are therefore my eternity. You have always been and will forever be mine and I will always and forever be yours. You are my 7th dimension… Love.

    Each aesthetic shared, every facet of you beautiful to me. My friends, are each a beautiful and unique tree in this forest of the “real world”. Some provide fruit, some provide shade, and some provide shelter from the rain, some provide branches to swing from. You encompass and surround it all. You are the whole that isn’t made up of parts… you created the entire thing for me because I can see it for what it is for the first time. So you are the goddess I choose to worship and with that neurishment you are able to make the forests grow around me… You have returned my children, my mother, and my friends to me… so many of the people I care about see the man you love as a better version of the man they always knew was locked somewhere inside me in that dark dungeonsni no longer care to have the adventure within. The man your love has allowed me to be. It is important for you to know this, I don’t want you to believe it, or understand it, I want you to know that you are my world and not just another tree in it. The love I have for you is unique, in that it is absolute. The risks you take in living me back only show up when we doubt our love is absolute and true.

    As we set off on adventures together, the risk is only in doubting ourselves and this love.

    Never doubt that you are my everything, and never confuse yourself with the trees… There is no true risk to us apart from doubt. Never believe I am false, never believe I am capable of lying to you. If I have you, nothing else matters to me. You simply must believe this, and if you ever doubt for one second this is my reality, I ask we choose to skip life’s adventures that have warning signs you can’t move forward because of.

    I would be happy alone in the universe with you. I would be happy with no excitement but your touch. As I said in serenity… you are my new excitement, my new elation, my new bliss, and my first peace. I found serenity within the calm of your embrace for the first time in my life… an ecstatic rest in you… that I wish to shout loudly to the world from the highest mountain of truth.

    The call of adrenaline or drugs to drown out the pain in the world is no longer needed for me to find calming peace. Only your arms around me. We can, if you choose, embark on any risky adventure… but it is no longer a need of mine. I will follow you, at your pace, in your time into hell and back and laugh the whole way down and buzz from the adrenaline as we return home. I will go anywhere with you, do anything with you… confidently, bravely, because I believe we are one soul in two bodies mingling on a plane far above the 4th dimension of logical reality. I have no fear that you will one day find something you find more exciting than me, because I know how it feels to have my only excitement be you…
