life lives this I-ness

34

who is sitting?
who is breathing?
who is painting?
who is writing?

the answer will depend on who is asking

if ‘me’-mirage is asking it will create
a response from its handy archive of memories
if story-free ‘I’ is asking
it will simply recognize ‘I’-ness

who or what this-here-now appears to be
is created by the perceiver

Life lives this I-ness
in all conceivable forms
and knows I(t)-self
via the Aware-ing of all ‘I’s

what is ‘right action’?

33

all the body-brain conditioning
acquired over a lifetime remains

it’s a myth that it’s somehow all
wiped away with a whiff of awakening

what does go, is the reflexive ‘me’ mirage
that habitually identified with that conditioning

when conditioned responses to Life
(re-actions) manifest,
Awareness lays them bare

some serve the survival needs of the organism;
these I associate with an intelligence
beyond comprehension

some serve the survival of the old illusory ‘self;’
these I associate with intellect
in its dualistic operation

so, what can be said about ‘right action?’

no action stands alone –
any action is an inevitable action
dependent upon and
interdependent with
the ceaseless activity
of non-personal, agenda-free
Life

‘right action’ is just another concept
