Credo

Mother Nature, face, space, abstract, poetry, rebellicca, thoughts, magical, ethereal, mysticalFor all the moments of glory I've missed
And the friends I've never made,
And the friends who've forgotten me.

For the smiles I never understood or saw,
For those I longed to catch in a glimpse,
But I did not as time was too innocent
And all sunflowers were falling asleep,

For the melodies I left unsung
And the sweet promises I didn't keep
The roads not taken and the lines unwritten,


For all who thought they loved me but did not,
For all who hoped to love me but they stopped
As others captured their longings,

For all the raindrops seeking shelter on my skin
Before dissolving into a memory of water,

For all the shoelaces and buttons that came undone
To slow down my flight through the day
And remind me that simply being is enough,
For all the ghosts of the past that stopped haunting me,
And the future memories of each moment in time when I felt alive,

For the impossible desires and the possible discoveries,
For the destinies I decided were mine
And those I've been through before
I am.

Imperfectly Crafted

Perhaps you feared You. You In me With me Through me Around me Caught up in our Forever. So You Banished All memories of Us Into an exile of Parallel realities Where no Future is Safe or Possible. Yet The present of our Past Bleeds through These imperfectly crafted Dimensions Reminding You Of our Unavoidability. ©REBELLICCA, 2020 You might also like:  Awareness ,  That Velvet Space ,  Infinite Intelligence ,  Notes To Self ,  The Artists ,  On Self-Expression ,  On Desire ,  On Doing and Being ,

On Belonging and Critical Thinking

Lately, I’ve been thinking about the tension between critical thinking and the desire to be accepted and belong. Somehow my mind always seems to circle back to one particular issue: the price many are prepared to pay just to feel they belong. To them, avoiding standing alone at all costs often overrules the damaging impact social pressure can have on the ability to perceive clearly and think objectively. Neil Postman, one of the most eloquent media theorists and a cultural critics of the 20th century, claimed that every technological innovation has its own agenda. Once we adopt the new invention, we become (mostly without realizing it!) part of its manner of dictating the rules of reality. The same, I believe, holds true for any system, culture, tradition, community, country and policy, when embraced in a blind and desperate rush. In order to benefit from it, we’re required to comply with its postulates. In order to be accepted, we’re often asked to leave out most of what makes us

Life - Transforming Questions

If the quality of our life depends on the decisions we make. And the quality of our decisions is largely determined by the quality of the questions we ask, what are the questions that could lead us to the greatest breakthrough in life? Here is a (never complete) collection of questions I believe can assist you in moving forward and transforming your life. You don't have to try and answer all of them. Instead, feel free to browse through the list and contemplate the questions that resonate with you at this moment. The questions might be used also as journal prompters and in practising meditation. What do you stand for? What person do you wish to become? If thoughts shape reality, what would you like to think about that would help you move forward? If you'd have to do the impossible with nothing, where would you start? Who are you without the doing? Who are you when you just are? If you could re-imagine and transform their life just by visualizing and thinking, wha
