The Tao Is Tao (147)

                                                            147

                                          Turning toward emptiness
                                                 to excaoe reality
                                  is turning away from your true self.
                          Losing yourself in reality to escape emptiness
                                       is falling prey to an illusion.
                  Like a drowning man clinging to  an imaginary branch
                                 you will surely perish in the flood.

                                                                                  -- Jos Srabbert
                                                                                "The Tao is Tao"

Can on live wisely
with one foot
in each of two world?
One illusory, though it seems real
Another real, though it seems an illusion.

Believers manage this.
This world is not their home.,
though they seem patient,
and sometimes comfortable
while they wait
for this world to pass.

I am more like Nancy Wood's shaman
who falls into an abyss,
neither here nor there.
And i sense a solution coming:
A marriage of heaven and hell.
(or of heaven and earth anyway)

YES.

Here's the issue:

Emptiness exists and holds all.

Here's the problem:

Human fails to acknowledge himself: Human.

Love the world, Love God, Love Love. What the fuck else does it matter between the nirvana and the origination-world?

Thanks for reading.
Your comments are welcome,
while often misunderstood
and rarely agreed with.

Of course, love is all that matters
but that has nothing to do
with what is written
Those who think Christianity is the only expression of love
are not part of my cult.

Do not Child me. I know the God. Anything else you need to know, you can communicate with me on the other plane.
