Enlightenment hangs like a burning coal over a silk sheet
drops of fire fall from the coal
land on the sheet
and burn a hole through it
eventually the whole coal falls
burning the entire sheet away
no more sheet
only empty space where the sheet used to be

If you were you would spell it right.

Nice to see someone using this forum to define for themselves a Weltanschauung, and ways to express it. However, not so nice when those expressions are reflexively critical of others and lack clear compassion and interest in another's POV. Talk about 'ego'!!

no no no

"I" is ego and so is "I AM"

I am implies that you actually exist

which you don't


please god almighty

try to see this

you don't need anything else

but to seriously look at this

and quit trying to define ****

Thanks for that bit of space. We really fill it in far too often. Makes for an interesting contrast while the tension is still there before it all falls away - notes play with rest in music, paint agitates the blank canvas. All musical little lies playing while they can in the dusk and fall of silence.

Who experiences?

who is this "I" that is experiencing life?

that's nice

but as of right now

enlightenment only exists as a concept in your mind

quit trying to define enlightenment

and go get it damn it

EP is serving only as a distraction for you right now

get off

and go think hard about what I sent you in the message

it leaves more than a hole

it destroys the sheet entirely there is no more sheet

only empty space

ego is the sheet

ego is you

actually ego is thinking pretending to be you

it says I am a woman or I am a man

I am 35 years old

but this thinking is not you

you are the empty space


that thinking takes place in

become aware of thought

become aware of your own awareness

you are not the sheet

so it consumes you? o.o
