analyze and adapt
diagnose and dialogue
formulate and fix
trance, track, tap:
so many ways to place
patches on the pain
we call it healing
and invent new modalities by the minute
to ease the symptoms, which also
multiply by the minute, fattening the catalogue
of official psychological disorders
but until the trickster called time
is exposed and deposed
our little healings are just brief remissions
from the ache of incompleteness
to heal is to make whole
that’s why the true sages carry no band-aids
but go straight to the root of fragmentation
– time –
conjurer of the ‘me’-mirage
with its default sense of separation
and its insatiable appetite for union
they know that the ending of time
restores immeasurable wholeness
– no faith, no belief, no training required
only a willingness to disappear
into now and this and here
wonder births questions
questions birth creativity
creativity births wonderment
The cycle of creation begins with wonder
What exactly wonders?
Not ‘me’, not ‘you’!
Life Itself wonders, and billions of bubbles of sentience (felt as ‘I’-ness) explore its questions in billions of different ways.
The questions will always generate creativity in one form or another, but it takes a ripening awareness for creativity to birth wonderment.
Whose ripening awareness?
Not ‘mine’, not ‘yours’!
It’s a natural ripening without subject or object, without knower or known; a flowering that’s conclusion-free and that operates outside of time.
It’s curious to see how many supposedly ‘awakened’ dreamers teach that there is ‘no doer’ yet go on, often at considerable cost, to give instructions as to what should be done.
The wild wideawakeness that obliterates the ‘doer’, if the apperception is genuine (and believe me, you’ll know), wipes all traces of doer-ship from past, present and future.
Its revelation is that the supposed doer is synonymous with time.
Therefore, any practice that takes time – even some forms of meditation – will take one further from unknowable Knowingness, not closer. Actually, it’s impossible to be closer to what is being sought than one already is.
The ending of time is the awakening to a Life vibrantly alive in this naked and ever-fresh moment.
