Our Universe is Expanding…

11 comments

 

Our universe is expanding(the slick scientists say)

            We’re headed in that direction,come what may

Elite physicists tell us all about energy and power

            But to me,they’re like a bug on a little,swelling flower

 

They’re studying their “Big Bang” and its incipient phases

            like a spider on a protuberant bud who inquisitively gazes

But the eternal whole can’t be understood by studying mere sections,

            nor by looking from a bogus center that is a primitive projection

Beyond words and psychological time…

12 comments

 

To wield witty words, to accumulate a lot mentally and in the material world, to have power, and to have security, is zilch if one is not of a holistic compassion beyond the so-called central self.  Holistic compassion (beautifully) does not depend on any outside or inside authority for guidance.  In holistic compassion, there is no direction, no blueprint as to the right way to go.  Society spoon-feeds us everything.  So many of us are used to being spoon-fed.  We are so impressionable and easily influenced by (and “as”) reaction.  Our propensity for looking with what others have spoon-fed to us runs deep.  What may be intelligent is a quantum leap going beyond all that.  That quantum leap may not be of time.  Psychological time, as the associated past of what one has learned, and as obtrusions from the past as what the future might be, does have some place.  However, the timeless, beyond that limited domain, is also of great significance.

In the timeless, there is no seeking, no authority, no goal (projected from, and “as,” the past), no direction, and there are not mere tokens and labels (as words) that keep one in fragmented, sequential symbolism.  In the timeless, real compassion and holistic intelligence — beyond the limited, isolated, coldly indifferent, and false — manifest.

This little world…

19 comments

 

This little world needs more jubilance and wholeness

         and intense insight and sound compassion

This little round place doesn’t need fossil fuels

         nor indifference that kisses the behind of out-dated political drivel                  

         and doesn’t need complacency when separation and

         fragmentation devour all inside and out

It May Be Wise To Be Different

15 comments

 

True and profound insight is like a rare jewel that very few ever partake in within (and “as”) life.  Profound insight is not what someone can merely — through effort — acquire or obtain.  Insight is not like a materialistic possession; one cannot merely “have it”; one cannot merely decide to “get it.”  It would be erroneous, for example, to say that “I have an insight.”  Profound insight, besides not merely being what one can possess… is beyond the limitation of a fragmented, so-called central “I” or controller.  The so-called central regulatory agent may think it has something… but what it has will not likely be profound insight.  Real insight may come when the mind is intelligently empty (and not merely filled with the crass, fragmentary patterns of others). 

Unfortunately, profound insight eludes most minds.  The fact that most minds operate via fractional conflict, a fallacious (isolated) center, and operate via mostly mere details and function (with and “as”) separative patterns, has a lot to do with this.  Correct education can help us to go beyond our limited ways.  Before that can happen, educators themselves must change positively.

No doubt, most people who read this blog posting will merely reduce insight into an abstraction, to another idea.  However, doing so is like never having the passion to really look at nature; it’s like going through life with an empty heart… never really feeling.

When the Universe asks Itself an Immense Question…

18 comments

 

upon the universe

                    only one extensive thing was asked,

                    and the asking was without

an “I” doing the asking

 

when the universe asks

                    itself an immense question, 

                    there is no need for a fallacious(little)”I”

(and there is no self in the vastness of eternity)

 

so,the next time you

                    have something infinitely special to ask,

                    negate the pottylittle psychological you

and the answer may be in the question

Love…

7 comments

 

Profound love is like humility… one cannot know that one has it.  One can suspect that it may be there, but considering (in depth) about oneself “having love” is a bit of a narcissistic action and, as such, negates love; additionally, love is not a possession (so is not what one can merely “have.”)  Real love is not (whatsoever) what is measurable; love has an essence of immeasurability.

Unfortunately, the so-called love that many are involved with pertains to images that they have about others (and about other things).  These images, however,  are what composes their minds from patterns absorbed from the past (and held as the accumulated past).  Love, involving absorbed and learned images, is usually very superficial and limited.  Profound love is not, for example, a learned and absorbed image (called “I” or “me”) subsequently associating itself with another image called, for instance, (her).  A relationship between two learned, fragmentary images is not much of a relationship at all.  Love goes beyond the fabricated walls of mental images and psychological symbols.   Love is not possession, attachment, nor identification.  Profound love may exist when the ego (the image of self) is not.  Merely identifying the image of self with other living things is not love.  Profound love transcends fragmentation, is eternal, and is beyond the ordinary patterns in time (and of time).   Timelessness is an immeasurability beyond self-fabrication.

Beyond the mind’s “would be’s” and “should be’s”…

7 comments

 

Beyond the mind’s “would be’s”  and “should be’s”

                    and “maybe’s”

Beyond all “could be’s” and “shall be’s” 

                    and “rabies”

exists an effortless awareness not just of

                  death’s parameters and time’s “crazies”

 

Beyond what tries,lies,and sighs

                    Beyond what must propagandize and theorize

Beyond the “why’s” Beyond revise

Beyond everything that can

                (infixatedeyes)hypnotize,

exists a wisdom beyond all

                    “I’s”
