need practice editing,
start with your self,
edit out something unhealthy from your life,
keep going,
slash away, edit, re-edit,
cut out whole passages,
memories un-needed,
old habits,
still there, and not quite right?
go further, things that make you you,
cut them out
be ruthless,
hard to do, -while doing- i agree,
then be!
the final edit
leaving nothing,
the place of all content's
befores, afters, nows anf thens,
nothing
cannot be edited, &
needs no editor

No sooner have you edited out the 'crap',
More 'crap' appears!
But I'm only joking 'Dear One'! Very Happy

Within Nothingness
craps
appears
and disappears
onto Itself -
naturally
like clouds
on the sky.

It feels right,
natural
in a state of
Total Acceptance.

Very Happy

is there a balance to be found
that might weigh the risk's-rewards
of doing vs. not-doing?
but then doing is getting done
with or without the doer,
there is no choice in this matter,
so what is ever getting done, really,
and by who?hmmmmmmmm
this fool would love to know,
but i don't have the energy for that anymore,
i could slap at these keys
continuously until i die,
but just don't make me
answer the question why?
i'm too busy with all this
other unanswerables,
and when will-i find the time
to edit it all,
there's a crazy voice in me that
says, who cares, and so what?
and and and,
nothing matters
yet everything does too,
so what the hell,
you'll have to drag me off the carousell
kicking & screaming...

Mind doing/thinking
Recycling Onto Itself
In cycling
On and on and on…
The same theme…

Crap happens.
Love happens.

Projections.

Nothing ever happens.

or BOTH

Happens/NOT Happens.

Simultaneously.

Paradox of linearity?

ANNA I
just dozed a moment
and saw an image-of your reply,
the screen looked the same
there as here, for a moment,
then woke again, now again, to read your replies
to see if that message seen there
is this one seen here as well,
funny, there-i-read and lost / lose? it,
here it hovers magically as
light diguised as meaning-full symbols
patterned on such brightness,
no one-der you suggest
reading your replies
in absolute's blackness,
it's easier on the i(s)

Ice on pine needles--
can it hear the Christmas bells?
Can anything not?








Tree's all taken down--
year's end--where is Christmas now?
Deep within each pulse.

Jed McKenna described the same thing, but he called it "Spiritual Autolysis"... a messy and ruthless process, and not for the faint-hearted.

Love


that old speedbump,
i'm tired of hearing him named,
he is it, as are you,
but in your case,
if i see you,
the speed-bum-p will
cause me to accelerate,..
my attempts to retrieve more form from
the eternal current, for both our sakes,
and discern what is in that bundle for you,
and what is in it for me, if anything,
and what's leftover goes into buying
black paint to cover up the "slow, bump"
symbols, written in the ground,
on either side of jed meckenna's traces...

Cool Yes&NO embrace Cool
each other
In the center of the
Hurrcane’s eye.
Stillness dance
Shiva&Shakti-
Traces of the Dream.
Let the winter breeze
Enter with the
Crown’s song
Singing at yin/yang
Wedding.

and a relief,
i was concerned a reply such as this:

might set in motion a chain
of half-a-thousand 7-7 replies
to that lovely hokku from u
