Vexing paradox!
The better a post I write
The less folks like it


Conquer Fear

One cannot conquer fear
Only love something so much more
You would happily die
To save it


Conundrums, puzzles and riddles
What is the sound of one hand clapping?
When a tree falls in the woods with no one to hear it, does it make a sound?
What am I?
Just tricks to make you seek the answer
To tie your thoughts in knots
When the true answer
Is to have the courage
To leave even the most burning question
In this lies the answer to all things

A tearful eye

There was no other way
To get from there to here
Than by the path taken
For the here and now is what’s real
And dreams of paths not taken
Of futures out of reach
Are only the ghost of a reflection
In a tearful eye

Nought but thought

What use these philosophies
If they are nought but thought too?

Nothing anywhere to hold on to

Though we may not know it
We are in the business of sifting randomness
Of taking this rampant, unruly life
And fishing for those tid-bits we like best
When an unlimited ocean stretches before us
To find that one solution
To an ever changing equation
A question that will not be still
But changes the questioner as soon as it is asked
And so this search goes on to exhaustion
To sleep, and on again
In desperation
In inspiration
Swimming for the north star
In the shifting surface
Of this restless sea
And nothing anywhere to hold on to

It’s Nature

Thought cannot gain so much
As a finger-hold on this rock
Yet one cannot blame it for trying
For such is it’s nature

A thought repeated

What is the mind?
A thought oft repeated
That allows other thoughts to be…

You are

You are the contents of your mind
You are changing constantly
You are still
You are ashamed of what you are
You are everything you want to be
You are a mystery to unravel
You are boring
You are mindful of your mind
You are blissfully ignorant
You are defending a thought to the death
You are exhausted
You have everything worked out
You are powerless and falling apart
You do not exist
You are the most important thing in the universe
You are enlightened
You are absurd
You are the sum of electrons in the brain
You are a miracle
You are all of these things
You are none of them
You are…

A hair’s breadth

Who do you think you are, today?
You are Wrong
You are Right
And not a hair’s breadth in-between
