In writing poetry
It is seen
That it is not I
That writes the poetry
But the poetry
Writing me.

In the words of a great philospher...."Not just Intellectually...But
Experientially".

Peace!

cimages, I'm not being picky, just seeing where it takes 'me' Cool

Metaphor:

"A figure of speech in which an expression is used to refer to something that it does not literally denote in order to suggest a similarity".

What is 'death' similar to?

Love

What is the experience of life similar to....what is the taste of an apple similar to...because these experiences are different for you than me, then the only way anything can be described is as a metaphor...not precisely this for you....not precisely that for me....but by use of a metaphor....I do know what you mean.

Peace!

cimages is known.

Apart from this knowing, 'cimages' is nothing.

This known 'cimages' is not the image seen, or the feelings felt or any other sensation... these are not 'cimages', though they form what cimages appears to be.

This knowing of cimages is one with all knowing.

There is no 'metaphor' for this knowing or what is known (including knowing/known Cool )

This knowing/known is not like anything.

It simply is.

'What' is it?

... I don't know. Very Happy

I and knowing are the same.

Love

Explained so eloquently that it would bring understanding to an idiot.

Without doubt....without error

Not just intellectually......but experientially

What more can be said...what more can be added.

anything else would be......static.

Pardon my use of the term idiot...i'm the only idiot i know.

Peace
