What you just labelled good

No longer shines

What you just labelled bad

Its shadow wanes



With your labels

You look to exhausted filaments

To guard, to lead, to light the way

3 of 81, Poems from the Tao







We attach to things; we attach to feelings; we attach to thoughts of desired outcomes; and we suffer. Attach to suffering itself and feed further suffering. Only your shadow will ever be remembered and valued for YOUR suffering. Your value is found in the beauty of your mind and in the present moment.

1 of 81, Poems from the Tao









Free will is NOT found in the pursuit of desires or the formation and defending of opinions. No, it's not. One pursues desires and forms and defends opinions because of social-evolutionary programming. These drives were programmed into you with DNA and in response to environment.



Nature AND nurture, together. They do not fight each other.



Free will is found when you can say NO to desires, say NO even to your 'own' opinions. Takes practice. Then you will indeed have choice in what you think and feel. Then you will have free will. For most, it remains and undiscovered and/or languishing talent. I practice.

5 of 81, Poems from the Tao | spoken word to Oxygen Garden







Duality does not define

It simplifies

Infinity is not defined by its poles

That which is infinite has no ends



Duality sets illusionary limits

Use it as a compass and lens

You will often find yourself hobbled

Tripped up by what you do not see

Undefined



You fight to own ...

To define ...

Eternity



You cannot own a land without borders

You cannot define that without limits



You fight only to define yourself

You defend imaginary limitations

Cling to your illusions

And they will see to your fight's end

The Well



When you are thirsty, drink

Return to the well and drink



When you are tired, sleep

Lay your head upon your resting stone

Return to the well and sleep



Do not complain of thirst

Do not complain of fatigue



Hardships grow

Rooted in your lamentations



When you are thirsty

When you are tired

Return to the well and drink

TSUNAMI
disaster rides on boredom's tides 
pushed by restlessness .... to carelessness 
drowning in the shallows stirred
get swept away in the wake of the waves 
disaster rides on boredom's tides 
why are you bored ... 
within you lies an ocean of possibility
let deep and strong currents guide
go far and last long
go where tsunami
and boredom
cannot touch
