Four Hundred and Forty


Perhaps the universe is a huge mind in the relativity of all things cosmic.
Perhaps existence was created because this quantum mind willed it so.
Perhaps this is just another speculation likely as moot as any other.

* * * *
What dreamtime of consciousness plays out within any of us
Is more out of our hands than pride would deign believe.
Free will is an assumption abiding on very thin ice.

* * * *
So much absurdity to keep the mind a-wandering.
Carnivals at every turn are a sure means
To the collapse of any world.

* * * *
Nothing, about which there is much ado.

* * * *
It is by the light within that all is seen.
The sun and stars are but reflections.

* * * *
Do you live to eat, or eat to live?
Or a bit of both, in moderation.

* * * *
There is nothing to want or fear.
It is only a body, it is only a dream.

* * * *
To discern religion of the divine kind,
You must set aside dread of the unknown.
You must summon the courage to stand alone.

* * * *
The sooner you face clearly, squarely, the way things are,
The sooner you will be able to disentangle any given problem.
Procrastinating only allows it to swell to grander heights.

* * * *
Every life form across all creation abiding in a niche of its own,
Struggling to survive in whatever way the programming of the genetic lottery allows,
Against the endless waves of annihilation cast upon its mortal frame.
