these words...i watch

grasping for support in nothingness, words deceiving

i feel i cannot move...'it'? feels it cannot move...nowhere to go...

buddha, buddha, buddha...

what else?...

it cries, i watch sometimes within, other times without...

i am lost in nothingness...but what to be lost? 'it' is lost...these words...these concepts...

nowhere to go...
screaming for buddha, i scream for self...

where....what....i cannot move...

it grasps out, screaming for help, crying...but the buddha here...the buddha now...where else...

vertical line What is asked of us in this life is to recognize that words have a limited range of relating the equality in all sound. So we go into a search, a hunt to qualify, and quantify the words... and create high drama. We observe life, detached from the lie of our perceptions being valid enough, in all ways, at all times including the center of where we are.

The desire to fill a void fans out, seemingly perfecting itself in multiplicity and diversity, but really only limits us to the grasping on a horizontal plane.
