Dharma of the Day #9 {mind}

 

absolutely certain mind

is already wrong

but in its arrogance

doesn’t yet know it

 

it is not possible mind

is infertile and sterile

it cannot conceive

it has had a hysterectomy

 

you are not “one of us” mind

demarcates the boundaries

laying barbed wire and mines

in order to abort nascence

 

terrified of the new mind

goes around the race track

many, many, many times

it takes no pit stops, to consider

 

joy of a child mind

is filled with awe and wonder

and is as fluid and mercurial

as can be, in so doing, it soars

 

full of rubbish mind

recycles old thoughts

seemingly endlessly

it makes Sisyphus’ life look easy

 

dogmatic opinion mind

cannot differentiate opinion

from garnered knowledge

it is a tad myopic

 

broad vision mind

swells on ocean tides

and ultimately touches the shores

of every continent

learn to lift your consciousness

out of the dark depths of your own anus

perhaps in so doing

you might see a new cosmos

 

there you might find

utter humility

and magnificent sensations

at the marvel of all creation!!

 

Atman

Permanence and impermanence

Are same thing

Constructs of mind

 

In absence of mind

There is no per or man

Nor emanation

 

Thing is not Atma

 

Mind exists only in matter

And it does not

 

If can be thought

Then it is not

 

Thought itself is substance

And must die

 

Thought is not Atma

Mind is not Atma

 

The point of

No mind and

No thought

 

Is close to Atma

 

Atma is both before thought and mind

Have

… … … Come into being

And

… … …After they have passed

 

Progenitor and ineffable

Known but not yet known

Nevertheless aware

 

Atma is nascence

The urge of nascence

And the awareness of the process of nascence

 

Being in nascence

 

Not bliss-full and bearing robes

Or shiny-eyed and haloed

Nor ascended and God like

 

Atma is creation in the action of manifestation

Peaceful no, dynamic yes

Precursor of the Divine mouse

Clicking being-ness into …
