One Hundred and Forty-Nine


This ever-streaming moment is all you truly are, have ever been, or will ever be.
How can any thought, any experience, any passion, any notion whatsoever,
Cleave to that which is flawlessly perfect prior to all that is imagined?

* * * *
Those who long for a serene existence put aside their many passions,
And surrender to the awareness in which all creation is harbored.

* * * *
What a challenging thing
Not to be drawn again and again and again
 Into the human paradigm and its incessant, raucous cacophony,
All its cares and woes, all its troubles and bothers,
All its confusion and disharmony.

* * * *
What is there to save when there is nothing that can be lost?

* * * *
The proof is in the pudding, and you are the pudding.

* * * *
It is generally the followers, the true believers,
Who begat the absurdities and horrors
Of all dogmatic thinking.

* * * *
How can anyone know that which is oblivion
When nothing must be present to witness it?

* * * *
You are not apart from god, you are a part of god.

* * * *
To fully comprehend your many demons is to realize
That they are but ripples of vain consciousness, not you.

* * * *
All pronouns are but the narrowing assumptions of imagination.

* * * *
We must each wander alone through the decline toward the demise.
Coping can include cynicism, stoicism, fatalism, absurdity, conviction.
