vertical line Posted on Dec.18.2007 @ 04:55PM EDT by Woodsman
The negative thoughts that I have create problems, way before they come from my mouth or push away any chance of enjoyment, for me or anyone.

This is a ground for acceptance, and worthy of expression.
It is not all the time that I feel incapable of relating for the struggle of acceptance.

- Just Me

but then this comes from nowhere, somewhere beyond... and attaches itself without my knowing.

"No one is as capable of gratitude as one who has emerged from the kingdom of night."

Elie Wiesel

Mr Woodman,

There is the one,

when he stands he stands, when he sits he sits,
when he lies down he lies down, when he sleeps he sleeps,
when he walks he walks, when he run he run,
when he eats he eats, when he drinks he drinks,
when he breaths he breaths, when he sees he sees,

when he speaks he speaks, when he doesn't speak he doesn't speak...
Oh! can't tell you all about him.

vertical line See, that's the perfect example of attachment by renunciation - he renounced something he consumed 10 years ago and it now it consumes him for ever and ever amen.

vertical line Living life in the present moment is based on action. Not dreaming of the past and future, not giving in to deterministic mechanics of the universe.
