It doesn’t intend to bring along a plus one,

yet wisdom is often accompanied by irony.

The exact same instant that I am being gifted with a realization in my overview realms of ‘lessons-du-jour’…(not failings…learnings) whether the patterns of my choosings, in a situation or a day’s time, revealed and/or reflected my heart’s intentions…

The moment I realize something, 

I am struck by its simplicity, its elegance 

and how obvious whatever the truth of a moment, a person, of myself or, perhaps, of life, that is now on full display in my consciousness.

And that’s when the irony appears…swept in and on the breeze of this innocent feeling of “Duh” and the funny feeling that comes with the obvious being so easily overlooked.

That’s the irony…

I realize that I’ve been looking at that something all along without genuinely recognizing what it was and is…until, of course, the very moment that I do ‘see’ it and   


The truth reveals that it wasn’t hidden at all.

                            Wisdom and Irony…

what a duo 

                       what a tango

                                                      it’s quite the duet they bring together

Earnest, sincere, kindly, and earnest seekers (I used that word earnest already and I used it again, for the useless attempt at emphasis)…well, we eventually come to accept:

a seeker looking for this, sometimes finds that. 

There’s a finding, to be sure. 

A recognition, unhad as yet, is had. 

I am frequently as delighted as I am bewildered.

That’s how I recognize the love in all of this process.

I am delighted, bewildered, and encouraged to continue down that path by the very love I am finding.
