The More I Venture…

beyond

the

boundaries

of my

   humanity

the

greater

my

freedom

to

do

   so…

Today…As I Sat In The Silence…

I realized that

I...

We

Either live in

Knowledge

Wisdom…

And

Understanding …

Or

Die

in

   Ignorance

The

Choice

Is

   Ours

And therein lay the

Limits

of our

   Human

Power

And

   Fate

and so it is

that this life of mine has become

a journey of unfolding events

day by day

moment by moment

in which I simply let go of all

musts

and

   shoulds…

allowing myself to

   drift along…

riding

the

currents

of

   BEING

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes…Yes…Yes…

this

LIFE

is indeed a

DELICATE DANCE

of

   INTERDEPENDENCE…

in which we

HUMANS

are

BOUND

one-to-the-other

and

to the

SOURCE

of our

   BEING…

in ways we’ve

YET

to

COMPREHEND

usually my lucky day

not so

   this day…

finally stopped trying to squeeze

satisfaction

out of

misery

and simply sat in the

   Stillness…

   and with

mind

disengaged

  I watched the sun set…

with the descent of darkness

I found

   peace…

Freedom…

saying

YES

to the

LETTING GO ENERGY

and simply drifting along with the

everflowing

   WATERS OF LIFE

that’s

   FREEDOM

Today…

I cease my attempts

to construct a new and different

future

based upon the same

old

blueprints

from the

   past

As I Sat In The Silence Today…

      as I sat listening within…

contemplating the new life that is about to enter the family…

so soon after the suicide of my beloved grandson…

   I heard these words:

“it is

BLOOD

and not the

CHURCH

or

STATE

that determines and defines what is

FAMILY

and the

“RIGHTNESS”

or

APPROPRIATENESS

   of relationships between and among humans…”

such is the strangeness that drifts into consciousness

when one’s mind sits idle and open…

such a re-making of one’s worldview

such a re-seeing of reality

and

re-ordering

of one’s

cultural indoctrinations

such strangeness

born of a mind and heart not engaged in the mindless madness of the world

such an exquisite awareness of what is

REAL

and what is

   NOT

I’ve Finally Cracked The Great Mystery…And Gained Mastery Over The Torments And Enigmas Of This Human Existence…

I’ve reached

the

bottom-line

of

bottom-lines…

I’ve found

the

   WAY:

     SIT DOWN…SHUT UP

and

   LISTEN…

      for the only way to

KNOWLEDGE

is via the

      INNER PATHWAY…

the way of the

   HEART…

THE WAY

   OUT

        IS ALWAYS…

       IN…

Yin To His…
