Four Hundred and Thirty-Two

432


The ongoing enjoyment of anything is in the comfortable appreciation
Of its fathomable aspects, of its layered subtleties,
Of its unfolding nuances.
And boredom, too much of the same.

* * * *
The human paradigm is all about consumption.
Consumption of the senses, of the mind,
The ever-unfolding differentiation
Of one thing or another.

* * * *
You need not abide the limitation
Of anyone or anything if it does not suit you.
You are sovereign.  Be sovereign.
No permission required.

* * * *
What is anything to you who have seen
An infinity of universes come and go?

* * * *
How long, how short,
How broad, how deep,
How narrow, how steep,
How, how, how,
How it all is,
Is, indeed, a mystery.

* * * *
There is not a personal god,
So much as there is a personal you
That is a mystery called god by many names.

* * * *
That which never sleeps
Is within and without all great and small,
A boundless abyss of tranquility, a mystery beyond compare.

* * * *
The universe is an eggshell, the mind a beak.
Eternal salvation is the freedom of any given moment.
It is the infinite timelessness of awareness that nowness ever offers.
