Three Hundred and Thirty-Four


Feel free to wipe the slate clean anytime you please.
There is no reason to keep it full of meaningless gobbledygook.
Forget everything, simply be what you are, have ever been, and will ever be.

* * * *
Your perceived world, your perceived universe, is all about you,
And everyone and everything else is about theirs.
We are truly all alone, together.

* * * *
Is there any argument that humankind has on the whole
Become a rather disheartening disappointment
To those who might have hoped for more?

* * * *
How many patterned things we all without thinking,
Regurgitate, inside and out, day after day after day.

* * * *
To be anonymous within is the greatest challenge.
The fabrication of identity is ever-enticing for those
To whom the imagination of consciousness is real.

* * * *
You are in all things, and all things are in you.
Whether experienced literally or discerned figuratively,
It is the way it is, has always been, will ever be.

* * * *
Accepting dogma and idolatry is the first and last mistake.
Truth is an ever-present-every-moment-now kind of thing,
And no intermediaries past or present or future are required.

* * * *
Eternity is the seamless now
To which momentary awareness is witness.
Die to the dream of time and totality becomes absolutely clear.

* * * *
What point being a footnote
Or even a lengthy chapter in a history book.
Or, perhaps the most terrifying possibility of all things narcissistic,
The front cover on a check-stand magazine rack.
