Today's destiny

Today! You have an appointment with destiny.

The idea of destiny suggests some future great event that will happen to us. For a young person, perhaps, the day of meeting the love of their life; a mature person, the day a grandchild is born. Or, for a whole culture, the day the world ends. Destiny, however, is nothing greater than the meeting of the present with the future. When does that happen? That’s right now as the present meets the future – today.

We don’t know when we’ll die. We can’t assume waiting for destiny as some “big event”; but, feeling totally present, today itself is a big event.

"I" don't exist

'I' don't exist
I'm a construct; made of parts -
atoms, quarks, electrons, forces
Not whole

Still, there's something,
a no-thing
That's here too
It's of another order
Absolutely real, existing always
I want to be THAT.

Idea of happiness

Give up the "idea of happiness" in order to be happy.

"I" am the hollow flute

"I" am empty space,
like a hollow flute
Light, air passes
through "me"
Vibrating with Universe
Getting out of the way,
"we" become everything;
we are no-thing
