Three Hundred and Fifty-Five

355


The relatively agreeable thing about imagination,
Is that you can do absolutely anything your mind might dare.
Often much more enjoyable, and certainly less bother than the real thing.

* * * *
All creatures great and small are born of the same indivisible mystery.
All are fated never to see more than reflections of their own faces.

* * * *
The mind is a problem solver, the mind is a problem maker.
Cease making problems, and it regains a measure of balance.

* * * *
We all, great and small, must play whatever part
The given anatomy deceives us into believing.

* * * *
So many teachers,
Everyone and everything, really.
What does not communicate one thing or another
To those to whom learning is as natural
As drinking a cup of water?

* * * *
Sometimes you do, sometimes you do not.
So it goes, deal with it, get over it, move on.

* * * *
Wander beyond the idolization of form,
Geography, language, culture, creed,
Or any other temporal, tangible creation.
Discern the infinite intangible, the unmanifest,
The indivisible, from which all creation materializes.

* * * *
Ignorance, stupidity, avarice, entitlement, and hate,
Ever at odds with intelligence, enlightenment, generosity and love.
Another day, same predictable, maddening paradigm.

* * * *

First entry into the chilly waters of any experience
Always requires the girding glint of will and an earnest breath
Before wading, jumping, or diving into the ever-churning unknown of time.
