Amen ^

Personal perception is not Universal truth. ( I think I coined that one a decade or so ago - just googled to make sure it wasn't attributed to someone else. )

I found the truth hiding under my lounge the other day...then it up and ran away. In front of Zen temples they have two fierce hound like statues...they are the guardians of the truth and their names are, Paradox and Confusion lol.

breath

from my mouth to your mouth
great gifts given thoughtlessly.
my breath's caressed your pink and bubblings sacs;
I am intimate with you beyond imagining,
my gift transparent and without motive.
I take as thoughtlessly as I give.
as you take--and give.
as he and she and they and those
take--and give.





sorry, some quote from one of my own published long oldies after the style of walt whitman. i'm still fond of it.

Poor as the poor I cling,
like them, to humiliating hopes;
like them, each day I nearly kill myself
just to live.

Most ignorance is vincible ignorance. We don’t know because we don’t want to know.
