For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.

I saw a sad old woman today.

Reality views the world through a trillion pairs of eyes and no matter how good bad or mediocre the view, the being therein morns the thought of its own death.

It is the same Tao looking through every pair of eyes and so can not die as was never born. But it still 'feels' attached to each of its bodies as if it were the last, only or most important.

Missing from its narrowed off view that it is the I behind every set of eyes!

Harmonious tapestry

Reality in time is a flamboyant exploration of an eternal timeless moment.

It could be seen in one but is wiggled out by a trillion I that each follow a unique path.

You believe "I am unawakened" because you believe in "I".

This I is just seeing what it is like to be this I. The only way to know each unique perspective is to live it out. To see any one I as better or worse is to fall in love with a flower so much that you chop of its ugly root to save it.

You think you have a choice, a say in this or that? It may be fun to pretend you do but to believe you do, you will suffer.

As screaming left right or stop on a roller-coaster is ineffective on the speed and destination.

Behind every thing is the true canvas of reality, behind every act it is ever present. A tapestry telling a tale is a thread. A screen showing the movie is still glass. A ripple on a lake will pass.

Nothing is

Time, formed by the mind, as.
The mind can not see all of space, it carves.
Bit by bit, looks at a section, stores, moves on.
That is time.

Like a bird and its jerky head, catches a frame, fills its perception, moves on. Sequentially mapping the void in bits it can manage.

Were you able to see the whole void of space in one, there would be no need for time, no time - only complete understanding.

In bits the picture is incomplete and leads to misinterpretation.

The worst bit is the point of reference, the ego.

Only the ego can seek, suffer.
Only an ego can be spoken of, laughed at.
Only an ego can care.
When you step back.
That's it.

All there.

Wei Wu Wei Lost in Dimensions

This is a snippet from The Cube-root of Zero where the author Wei Wu Wei is explaining why nothing comes of exploration..

"[On volume A to B and so on] ...But all are measurements from A, and A is the centre from which all measurements are made. And what is A? A is the measurer, A is what measures, A is the centre of the universe, A is what we suppose ourselves to be, whoever we are and wherever we are. And since it is A who is now measuring, A is trying to measure itself. That is why there is nothing to be found."
