looking-without-labeling

22

she who was depressed is nowhere to be found:
looking-without-labeling left only sensation devoid of
owner or sad-sack story

the sensation called “depression” spoke only of
the utter exhaustion of a brain and a body

with the absence of she who was depressed,
(hmmm … make that she who wanted to not be depressed)
it’s crystal clear that the body/brain just wants rest

it just wants story-free peace

it just wants to sink into this womb of gentle healing,
this fountainhead of sweet Grace:

now-and-this-and-here

exactly as-it-is!

  1. Yes! “the utter exhaustion of a brain and body…it’s crystal clear that the body/brain just wants rest…it just wants story-free peace…it just wants to sink into this womb of gentle healing…” – the primordial womb of “Singing Silence” 🙂 She who is not in absence yet, but the Titanic is sinking 🙂 – C

  3. ‘it just wants story-free peace’: cavernous echo for this – you are so lucky to have found the womb – I keep asking myself but I don’t answer, and I don’t get the hint

    1. The ‘attainment’ myth runs on… Mark wants. Mark asks. Mark doesn’t answer. Mark doesn’t get the hint. Mark, dear heart, is the problem.

      Luck has nothing to do with this. At some point – for ml it was a point of depression and desperation – the ‘me’-story gives itself up. It whined on – “I want to die!” Something replied – “Please go right ahead!”

      Peace is the absence of the whinger-wanter.

      Lovingly ~ml
