Your Own Path as You Please

15 Jun

Multitudes

dumb

with

astonishment

entertained

easily enough.

Blue glow currents

worship boredom

the only sacrifice.

 

I cannot live the

life planned for

another soul.

 

Yet, he flies!

 

One of the coats

he wore was the

equal of mine.

 

Wedges for splitting

and shattering are

often used,

nine feet long all.

 

Propose to call it

an introduction

to zen- a robe

and a bowl on

a rock by the

path. Thus we

learn we live

in all beings

at once

everywhere.

 

Some things

are known to all

who are in fashion.

 

Other things are

known by those

who still work

in bowling alleys

as hamburger

waitresses and

beer busters.

 

You hate it, and

it hates you- off

a farm nigh

Pottersville.

Undamaged left

hand and his

prosthetic right

hand holding the

answer to

Potthapada’s

question about

the higher

extinction of

consciousness.

 

Letters with spirit-

established in

the mind not

the body.

 

Letters without

spirit- established

in the body not

the mind.

 

I still have much

to say about

events that

burden the

mind.

    I like this very much…it has an insightful feel about it, as though you were translating a dream that keeps recurring. Does that make sense?

      Your insight is quite astounding, brother. I wrote this after several meditation sessions for a wonderful poetry writing group I am a part of, and the piece just had this amazing flow. I was definitely trying to translate the visions I had during these meditation sessions, so you are spot on, brother, spot on. Thanks so much for reading and become a subscriber! Namaste.
