Joey’s Writings

Rabbi Yitzchak Schwartz and Joey Lowenstein have weekly poetry/writing sessions via Skype. Joey decides the topic and the poem’s title. Joey then writes the first few lines followed by the Rabbi; they alternate until the poem is completed. In the Skype Writing Sessions Joey has to spell out each word on a keyboard, which Joey’s aide is holding. Joey is not verbalizing these writings except an occasional word after he spells it.
Enjoy.

Reaching to Space Through the Telescope of My Imagination
(September 10, 2022)

By Joey Lowenstein

When Joey was asked what his thought process was for his painting Reaching to Space Through the Telescope of My Imagination, he replied:

“I live in a world full of curiosity. My imagination runs wild and takes me to places I would have never gone if I hadn’t suspended judgment. My imagination is endless. I can see the universe through my inner imagination. My thought process is a rocket ship which takes me to different channels and planets outside of the day to day. I look forward to adding more fuel to my rocket so that I can blast off into new dimensions one day.”

A Passionate Loves Unity (September 04, 2022)

By Joey Lowenstein

Some backstory on the painting A Passionate Loves Unity — “Passion derives pleasure from connection. We are passionate about many things in life, yet it almost involves connecting our spirit with another force that collides to bring out the most synergistic effects of delight and emotion. We dance, sing, and express ourselves with passion while embracing the alliance of the souls who come together because of a shared interest.”

A Journey Begins With One Step Forward (September 04, 2022)

Rabbi: Joey it is great to see you. Looking like a superstar. Any opening words? Any opening words you would like to share before we start?

Joey: Yes. Another day we are blessed with each other’s presence. I always look forward to our time together making harmonizing poetry.

Rabbi: Beautiful. Well, I want you to know that I do too; I look forward to our time and I especially delight in the way you express your poetic ideas. It is never a dull moment so it is always surprising, involved, and I feel like you are growing all the time; You are exploring all new avenues of poetry. You know poetry goes on forever, it’s as wide as a human imagination. There is no end to it. With that in mind, what would you like to call today’s poem?

Joey: “A Journey Begins With One Step Forward”

Rabbi: That is a beautiful idea. I like that a lot, very poetic. It opens up all possibilities. How would you like to continue that line?

Joey: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward, and never looking back to always be a shoulder to lean on with arms wide open and fears listening more than speaking to each soul, that’s why we have two ears and one mouth you need to hear it through your ears before speaking it out loud.

Rabbi: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — You must learn how to navigate, like the great sailors of old on the sea of the imagination, each step forward it’s a whole new sensation, so be patient my friend, the journey itself will lead us to our destination.

Joey: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — Looking for new adventures to see and explore, in life you have to strive for more, our souls will want to stay its path, the path of God is always grand, but just know the walk is hard like walking on sand.

Rabbi: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — He first ascends into the silence and he hears their ideas that at first he can never speak out loud, until he becomes awakened to the journey of every person and then words find a way from his mouth into our lives.

Joey: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — With your head held high, they say the skies the limit, but I’m the sky, the clouds are my vision and dreams, the sun is my heart warm as can be, the stars are my cells reproducing the spirit within, and the moon is where I land and a new story begins.

Rabbi: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — Walk your walk, and talk your talk and take a look around, see the endless sky and hear the pristine sounds, and then listen to your own voice, pronouncing such wonderful sounds, whether anyone is around or not.

Joey: A Journey Begins With One Step Forward — Your journey is yours only, so do not feel lonely, as you evolve one thing stays the same, the trajectory of your path will always turn a page, life goes on so cherish the time, take life in control, this journey is mine, now go shine brighter than any star in the sky.

Wings That Take You Higher (August 20, 2022)

By Joey Lowenstein

Looking down below, I wonder what I’ll see.
I wonder who would know if life is but a dream.
I’ll stay up in the sky, flying with my angels.
The only way to fly because everything is sweet
when you live peacefully in the now.
I’ve tried my best to make my mother proud.
The angels always lead and guide me towards the light
and set me on a path whenever I take flight.
So flying with these angels, I do right from my heart
and love with happiness until the end right from the start.

Never Settle For Less (July 24, 2022)

Joey: Never Settle For Less — Reach for the stars, any dream you have is not so far. Remember to follow your gut and to always remember to never give up, just look up.

Rabbi: Never Settle For Less — Sensor into the vastness of space and time and I am sure you will find that your life will be full of pleasant surprises in all things.

Joey: Never Settle For Less — Trust your journey to know this isn’t a race it’s an earning to get what you want, even when it looks blurry; life’s a story with lots of glory.

Rabbi: Never Settle For Less — Your beauty is on display for all to behold and your fearlessness is a profound lesson for both young and old.

Joey: Never Settle For Less — So always keep your head in the game and if you lose, your the one to blame, so just pray.

Friendly Skies (July 20, 2022)

By Joey Lowenstein

My painting “Friendly Skies” (painted on October 20, 2021) depicts the way opportunity opens once the storm clears.

Sometimes it can seem that the storm will last a long and dreadful time, while however, once the storm clears the warmth generated by the peeking sun brings a new light to our current situation.

Life has many ups and downs.

It’s important to learn from experience…and no matter the obstacle, one can overcome it.

When your light shines your reflection will be even brighter.

Volcanic Eruption with Earth Calling My Name (July 10, 2022)

Joey: Volcanic Eruption with Earth Calling My Name — Feeling the rumble in my soul gazing at the sky to see what it beholds. I fear nothing but God. Every story is told I’m like a lion you can hear me roar through your soul.

Rabbi: Volcanic Eruption with Earth Calling My Name — Every new poem we create it emanates from deep within our souls and it shows us where to go and it bursts us everywhere you go and it’s always calling out our name.

Joey: Volcanic Eruption with Earth Calling My Name — As the hot magma touches Earth, a new land is formed. To think, the land is gone. But it was just reborn to fall seven times getting up eight. You have to realize that our story was already made.

Rabbi: Volcanic Eruption with Earth Calling My Name — The irresistible urge to unleash the hidden well springs the fire has been hidden for so long but is now showing its true face. But it is now very clear and it is now very strong.

Joey: Volcanic Eruption with Earth Calling My Name — Seasons change just like land does. Sometimes change is needed like a breath of fresh air. You have to find the beauty in all aspects of change to see a volcanic eruption is just a way of Earth changing a new lane. Now let that thought build in your brain.

The River of Acceptance (July 06, 2022)

Joey: The River of Acceptance — I accept today for tomorrow can not bring today and what the future has in store for me and in store for you. I feel within and shine throughout to live and accept without a shadow of doubt.

Rabbi: The River of Acceptance — I totally accept your holy words. And the day will come when the mind will see and the deaf will here and the earth will be full of the knowing of the lord as the waters covers the sea.

Joey: The River of Acceptance — To transcend the traps of fear and stress and release the power I manifest to love what you do is to love who you are and I try my best to share my heart and to give to those who given to me and live together in harmony.

Rabbi: The River of Acceptance — Soak in the warm water in your safe sanctuary and then dare to venture out and unleash the well springs of your love inside and share all that you have with the loved ones of your life.

Landmine of Dreams (July 3, 2022)

Joey: I’m feeling truly creative and inspired today. I always enjoy the space we share. How are you?

Rabbi: I’m doing really good Joey. I’m really happy to be here with you today. I’m also feeling creative and i’m inspired that you are inspired. Let’s turn it into a big bonfire that reaches all the way into the sky. What do you think about that?

Joey: Let’s make magic.

Rabbi: What would you like to call this power Joey?

Joey: Landmine of Dreams.

Rabbi: I see a lot of good directions Joey. How would you like to continue that sentence?

Joey: Landmine of Dreams — An explosion of the dreams that never was chased. Casualty of negative thoughts that swept your dreams away, everyday is a new day to seize the day. This explosion doesn’t cause pain, but a dream not taken can take your breath away.

Rabbi: Landmine of Dreams — Intensity screams out his name on the streets and in the rooftops and in the eyes of all those he sees in passing, embarrassed glances. Some of them know him, but they must look away, because this fine young man, he wants the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Joey: Landmine of Dreams — So take a moment and watch your step. You do not want to step on the wrong dream or there will be nothing left but the forbidden truth of things you didn’t do and you will know this is true, through a view so new.

Rabbi: Landmine of Dreams — He wants the truth. He wants your heart. He won’t settle for anything less. He wants the soul of the matter, even when everyone else is content with the outer trappings. Speak to him from a place of timelessness. Speak to him from a place of effortlessness. Speak to him with passion. Speak to him from your truth, speak to him with intensity, he won’t, he can’t, settle for anything less!

Joey: Landmine of Dreams — So remember to follow your path with intention to find your true purpose in life. A landmine just takes one explosion and then you’re out of sight. So fight with all your might, that dream is brighter than any light.

White Wonderwall (June 23, 2022)

By Joey Lowenstein

Yes. It’s a wall of sorts that holds us from touching our inner truth. I strive and search each day by way with my inner voice and through the keyboard. We all have untapped potential laying dormant behind the “White Wonderwall”. Inside illuminates visions and perceptions of our highest self.

Green Valley of Hope (June 23, 2022)

By Joey Lowenstein

“The Green Valley of Hope” symbolizes a bright future. Grass is greener on the other side in the moment. But in fact, greener when were hopeful and look ahead. Sometimes we may be stuck in the mud. But even mud turns to grass once the sun dries it and seasons change. Green embodies serenity, life, and new beginnings. I firmly believe in the notion it’s greater later.

Rabbi : So Hold on to Me the Path is Here — When we are one person with one heart we can see the end right from the start and all we have to do is to follow through and inertia will pull us through.

Joey : So Hold on to Me the Path is Here — So grasp on real tight; never loose sight. Continue to reach new highs and turn your worries into prayer and follow your dreams throughout the years.

The Road of Life (June 13, 2022)

Joey : The Road of Life — Through valley and storms, and sunshine that pours through happiness and joy, tears that drop full of magic and song, beating on a mystical clock, on a mountain top.

Rabbi : The Road of Life — He focuses on the sacred text of his life, to be read and acted upon every day and night, the road goes on forever and he’ll never stop shining his sacred light.

Joey : The Road of Life — I am inspired each day by the ones I meet who struggle and thrive to overcome defeat, and to tackle their pain with passion and pride, to live to the fullest, so to know they tried to squeeze all the juices from the fruits of life, and taste redemption atop the mountain of strife.

Rabbi : The Road of Life — He is a master healer, and he constantly recreates his life, in ways that constantly provide new hope and new life to all those who are in need, even when there doesn’t seem to be any.

Joey : The Road of Life — I’m a champion at heart, still a sensitive soul who wants to help all regain control of the wheel they hold on this long windy road through life and love our stories untold.

Joey : Love that costs nothing more than my heart, but to start, I must embark, on my love for you is shinier than any jewel I can buy and I’ll tell you why, my love reaches farther than any star in the sky.

Rabbi : Love that costs nothing more than my heart, The love that is available to us all this very minute is endless and priceless, is achievable and accessible, in exchange for the nominal price of an open heart.

Joey : Love that costs nothing more than my heart, the heart I wear on my sleeve, I give to you to inside of me a beautiful view, of something so innocent it looks brand new.

Rabbi : Love that costs nothing more than my heart, seeing your shining light, lighting up the hearts of all who see, allows us all to shine our own hearts, for everyone we come across.

Joey : Love that costs nothing more than my heart, so handle my heart with care, for my love can only bear to someone who truly cares as I stare up above, now I know true love.

Joey : Love that costs nothing more than my heart, for at the heart of time, love one for another to build with each other to live happily ever after. Love isn’t for sale but can leave you in a fairytale.

Rabbi : Love that costs nothing more than my heart, the hearts knows in ways that even the brain doesn’t know. And this heart wisdom reaches deeper than any person can ever know.

Blessings, Joey and Rabbi Yitzchak

Seasons of the Heart (April 28, 2022)

By Joey Lowenstein

The spring of my heart
The summer of my mind
The fall of my doubt
Leaves the winter behind

Seasons change
And with it, we grow
To know and to learn peace
Is the path I aim to be on

To inspire others to sing their own song
And dance in the spring
And smile in the snow
And let everything fall right in place
Under life’s rainbow

Color Rush (April 21, 2022)

By Joey Lowenstein

The rush of color
like a river wild
from my finger tips.

The innocence of a child

and capture the beauty every day.

On the faces of those I come across
from the streets and sand I run across
I aim to be free like my art
speak from my soul
right from my heart.

A Mindset Without The Word Impossible (April 3, 2022)

By Joey Lowenstein
Note: This is Joey’s second poem thought of, and written, all on his own.

A limitless mind has no barriers,
the mind is a powerful thing.

All my life I had limits until I broke free,
the skies the limit.

Believe in yourself and then you will see,
that the view is better on the other side of the tree.

I was once voiceless without a door to run to,
and now my voice is seen and heard through a scenic view.

Sweet Smell of Lavender (April 2022)

By Joey Lowenstein
Note: This is Joey’s first poem thought of, and written, all on his own.

The sweet smell of lavender flowing through my nose,
I love the smell of you as far as a rainbow goes.

As the waves of blue and purple goes through the skies,
I picture a peaceful canvas one done by I.

Making its way through my brain as I close my eyes,
I see a sunset so divine,
I can see the future brighter than the stars on the sky.

Above the Clouds (January 2022)

Rabbi : Joey how are you doing?

Joey : Totally terrific, it’s always a sweet pleasure to speak with you. Let’s start some poetry. I have a title in mind. It’s called, “Above the Clouds”; I picked this because the almighty creator above is guiding our every move and keeping us in good hands.
Rabbi : I like the fact that you took the initiative to tell me the title and the reason without me asking. It’s a great reason and title, why don’t you start us off Joey?

Joey : Above the clouds, as I look below from the skies and persevere with courageous zest and unleash the love inside my chest.
Rabbi : Above the clouds, clouds are fluffy symbols of the mid-ground between the spiritual and the physical and it reminds us that we can cross that line anytime.

Joey : Above the clouds, for every being on this earth, is like a diamond in what their worth, precious unique, all gods children united together as one.
Rabbi : Above the clouds, in the great beyond, above the sun, there resides the one who knows their thoughts and within this compassion will not ever let us down.

Joey : Above the clouds, the strength i keep is built within so may it be i grow up wise to learn and love without disguise and courageously smile throughout and persevere beyond the doubt.
Rabbi : Above the clouds, the deeper I look inside the farther and higher I can fly and my eyes can see what i’ve never seen before.

Joey : Above the clouds, I aim to be above the clouds where all my worries and doubts are far below beneath my eyes.

Stars Can Shine Without Darkness (January 2022)

J — Stars Can Shine Without Darkness — A dream come true in the silver nights dreaming big and shinning bright I can see the vision inside the light
(Dillon wrote: *Lost Yitzchak on Skype for a minute. I asked Joey to give another line in the meantime)

Y — Stars can shine without darkness — Dreams in the night shine gently but the sensation of hope is what lights our lives
J — Stars can shine without darkness — Even if your dreams are never ending and your ideas are few we have the capability of making (them) come true

Y — Stars can shine without darkness — Don’t get fooled but the constant onslaught of tribulations just keep your chin up and keep yourself surrounded by inspiration
J — Stars can shine without darkness — Looking out on the new horizon I see a dream coming through raising myself to the highest good.

Branches of the Wise Tree (November 17, 2021)

By Joey Lowenstein

The wisest tree bares it all.
Sheds leaves during the fall.
Let the seasons do their thing.
As winter fades they are reborn in spring.
The branches are its arms and legs.
In the woods by the river, the branches are for climbing
and to allow the tree to be a giver and lover.
For others to hang and others to hide,
in the shade away from the sunshine.
Its wisdom is timeless and uprooted for all.
The wisest branch gives love in the fall.

Relinquish Your Thoughts on a New Tomorrow (November 08, 2021)

By Joey Lowenstein

Let go of your thoughts of a new tomorrow
and stay awake in the present moment.
That’s the key to life.
The magic of the moment is where God and love reside.
So many people are stuck in the future or the past,
yet in the moment is where happiness can be found
and truth reveal itself.
I try my hardest to relinquish hope in the next day
and strive to absorb the current one
with the utmost positive attitude each day.

J — One snowy peak at a time, my heart races for your blissfullness.
Y — One snowy peak at a time, my imagination cup runneth over with snowy images and I see feelings.

J — One snowy peak at a time, as I soar down the mountain, I witness the snowy blanket rushing in between my board and mind.

Y — One snowy peak at a time, as you focus on the finish line your inner peace begins to overtake your mind and your soul begins to shine like it never has before.

J — One snowy peak at a time, As I look to the stars for guidance I noticed a little voice tell me one peak at a time I will always shine.
Y — One snowy peak at a time, I soak up the icy sun rays and see what my inner being has to say as I fly away down the mountains majestic peaks.

J — One snowy peak at a time, The scenes of serenity on a sun kissed afternoon full of hope i soar down the shattering crystals and take over the mountain tops.
Y — One snowy peak at a time, the inertia of eternity pulls little old me down the slopes and the deepest hopes serve to always protect me.

J — One snowy peak at a time, I stand still happily stunned bonding with the almighty natures soft snow so deep that leaves me richly fulfilled.
Y — One snowy peak at a time, I am in a deep mountain trance, as i do the ancient mountain dance that is only known to the few and far between.

J — One snowy peak at a time, I have entered a dream and the vision of gliding on mother nature’s greatest creation i shred until the tranquility of dusk arrives.
Y — One snowy peak at a time, white powder surreal reality surrounds and nurtures me and all i can feel and see is your holy majesty.

J — One snowy peak at a time, on top of mountain tops, the sensation is unearthed, I soak in the glistening snow and dial in as i turn the course and uplift my inner soul.
