The Whole Thing

Each of the sentences I write is trying to say the whole thing, i.e., the same thing over and over again; it is as though they were all simply views of one object seen from different angles.

Late aging


Late aging is a slow bit by bit death; nature's way of giving us time to adjust to the inevitable.

Watch days go by

Watch days go by
Watch life go by - for a while
everyday. That is meditation, too.
In the direct experience of time passing by
We glimpse the impermanence of
everything that we love and hate.
This is the high perspective.

Then plunge into action
un-moved by results, goals, or ends.

It's what is.
