Three Hundred and Fifty-Five


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.
