vertical line Posted on Dec.01.2008 @ 05:25AM EDT by Master Zen

In the center of my mind a fire burns.

From the fiery mass comes waves of shakti.

The primordial current finds it's way into consciousness.

Pummeling the undesirable all along the way.

I believe that Jayapur Krishnamurti tried to explain this when he wrote the book called 'Flame of Attention'.

Perhaps knowing makes no difference to the 'current'. Just like it is said above in the previous post. Yet 'Something moves therein following it's own path' (not my words).

I find this conversation enjoyable.

A figure of speech:  “Words fail me” - as in, I’m speechless, I don’t know what to say -  or as in, the words appear to have failed to convey my intended meaning, failed my expectations, my vanity.  But, words can’t fail me, rather I fail words, thinking, speaking, writing the words.  Perhaps, when I fail my words, I don’t know what I’m talking about.  And if I consider that there are not the words to describe, communicate . . .  then I am not failing the words, there being no I to fail the words.  But wait, what’s this?  The words may have inadvertently conveyed an altogether different meaning which is then recognised as emergent.
