I can sing about You
I can BE You
I used to feel torn in two
and thought I’d missed a cue
but now it’s clear:
it makes no darned difference to You!
this untreatable schizophrenia
is my natural sacred state.
either I can sing about You
or I can BE Your roaring silence
whatever role I think I play
is You, playing for Your own delight
absorbed in either
it’s all the same to You!

this is amazing both in your beautiful poetic way and in seeing schizophrenia in a blessed and fearless way.
I have stood in that place “alone” . unenlightened . fear-full…….. it was many years before acceptance …before i saw ME in All… my essence as One … non-dual. non-separate. both perfect and imperfection. a shining moment.
“… a shining moment” indeed sweet Linda. Thank you so much for sharing this glorious nondual knowing of your “essence”, and for using that key word – acceptance. We tend to think that acceptance is a passive gesture, but oh … it often lies on the other side of massive (and inexplicable) resistance.
Blessings to you too ~ ml
Either of… or BOTH!. Not being schizophrenic.
(individual mind appears separate, but, in essence, it is not other than pure Consciousness – the Self)
Hello Martin – exactly. It just seems there’s a gap, and we have to assign a name to it.
