You understand me
You accept me as I am
That’s irony, right?

guess who knows secrets
twenty-million questions more
how many answered?
layers bury mysteries
soul is veiled in-sight

Beneath the surface
Shimmering halls of mirrors
Infinite regress is all
A maze meant to snare
expectations come from need
choice cast in error
pull up – crash in sight
mind think not in the wanting
muse will strike at dawn
“Struggling to achieve a rational understanding of reality is futile and will only exhaust us. Better to stop experiencing life via intellectual concepts, because it is only when the mind comes to a rest that we directly perceive the ever-present Mystery.” – Timothy Freke.
I used my mind to try to understand if I was sane. The Truth is I am different. But then so aren’t we all. Took years of self examination of my life and what I experienced to figure part of that out. Now where am I? Uncertain where I need to go next except to lead with my work, which is creating something, always something. Now looking deeper inside to see the infinity is all places.Reality is futile. No one really knows for certain. Too many lies and interpretations of the BS to sort through. Meditate. Levitate. Astral Project. Lucid Dream. Perceive the ever-present Mystery. It is a great choice. The Mystery. I am the Perceptive Detective attempting to unravel puzzles and maybe ‘see’ clear through the Dark into the Light.
Sounds much like my approach too. Must be why we get along together so well. 🙂
Definitely a familiar connection. Past to past continuing to meet. I like hearing we have similar approaches and I feel the same way, we get along together. Waves of the mind join in the understanding similar minds. Teacher to student & reversed. Always traveling in evolving circles. 😃
Round and round we go
In lifetime after lifetime
Chasing our own tail
In a dizzy daisy chain
Until it’s time to go home
Mind and sound touching
Words travel through sound and space
Jumping around time
Regenerate – awaken
Facing three corners
Past’s future is Now
Always heading outside time
My brother in law once kept talking about what we would make of ourselves if suddenly we found ourselves inside a ball of mirrors capable of reflecting back who we really are. Are we the essence of irony? Or multiple dimensions that reflect backward and forward into time? Not ourselves only, but the history of all the spirits and bodies who have inhabited the earth? What is now anyway?
Just so. Questioning may be a less than useful approach. That would mean that Descartes was barking up the wrong tree.
Irony, yes. And grace.
