Things

Whatever comes naturally–

that is the “right” thing

that is the “wrong” thing

well, it’s just a “thing.”

Perhaps it’s “nothing.”

This feeling of trying

to reach out and grasp

an answer out of thin air

I’ve been chasing it

for a long, long time,

but not as long as I have been

breathing, kicking, speaking

these “things” we advocate for

and believe in are just “no things”

living and dying and rising

and settling for rather than loving

“Trust me,” says the wind,

“Listen,” says the water,

“You’re here!” says the bird.

Meditate on that.

Find your passion.

Be the passion

that allows you to be.

  1. one gets lost if you see more than you should if you feel deeper than others would.
    it’s the duality of our consciousness and the proximity of our distinctions, the differences in similarities the same. Why look for an answer, why any questions…….This, this we have, this life, being, just stay
    within it …just live….take deep breathe, observe, read, learn, learn and learn ……that’s all
