Passion

You and I by Carlos Ocando


The same history told over and over again
never tired of your beauty I grow
a message that resonates with my soul
you and I forever together and alone
eternal bliss I feel inside Gaia’s womb

My enemy and my friend
I fear you and love you
I destroy you and I create you

Dichotomy to the eye of the beholder
Happiness to the eye of the lover
Sadness to the eye of the scared
Perfection to the eye of the wise
What to do I don’t know

I let the perfection of this moment direct me
The wisdom of my instincts show me what my eyes cannot see,
my ears cannot hear, and my hands cannot touch…
Infinite light opening the path into my heart

Blackness and lightness combined…
I love me, I love you, I love us

Chances by Carlos Ocando

In life we get many opportunities to do whatever we want to do. It is our job to follow our heart in the direction that we want to move. To me this has been very difficult because I have a tendency to evaluate and judge each decision that I want to take. I have the tendency to overthink everything combined with the mighty hammer of the judge in my head is very difficult to make a decision.

The “follow your heart” approach is my favorite and the one that I least use. Don’t be like me, take the hammer and trow it out of your life. Tell that horrible judge to go play and let you do what you love. Photography is my passion. When I’m outside with my camera I talk to her (yes it is a she), talk to my subjects (mostly trees), and sing out of happiness and joy. I’m going to follow my bliss and keep doing what I love, no more excuses, no more fear, no more…

As a gift from myself you get a free YES to whatever your heart calls you to do (something positive please!). Just write me a comment and I will answer with a Yes directly from my heart. My friend you can do it.
