darkness encroaches all
Difficult to breathe
Hard to think
Form coherent thoughts
Fingers slowly moving over keys
familiar and alien
poised over letters and symbols and spaces
seeking the ones needed to express
lack of clarity?
over the ‘W’, now the ‘O’
still meaning eludes
too many thoughts, emotions
Sadness, guilt, regret, pity, shame (a little),
how to right a lifetime of actions?
how to give and receive peace?
Lost thoughts, orphaned, drift across my mind
dissolving as morning dew at dawn.
Dawn, there will always be another dawn.
What do we really know? Not much it appears. Mysteries surround us and trip us up at every turn. Most of the knowledge we assume to be solid is in fact only theory. Not proven. Not fact. Not truth.
We must guard against those that claim to have the truth.
In fact, there is a beautiful saying:
Trust nobody who says they have the truth, trust everybody who is seeking for the truth.
I concur. To go a step further we must get away from an anthropocentric view of the world and accompanying truth(s) and widen our faculties to include all life in our quest for the ultimate answers.
I suspect that will lead us down a very difficult path, but the high road is always the hardest way to travel.
There have been attempts in the past. I call them anachronisms because they do not fit within the time and place, any time and place really, of their occurrence.
My hope is that one day these thoughts will not be anachronistic.
Dave and I were very lucky to speak to Jim, and to this day this is my favourite interview. Jim is both interesting and entertaining. You won’t regret listening in.
