A Soft Dream By A Stream
A Soft Dream By A Stream
9/26/17 e.v.
And entertainment became the new shrine and the new drug and the new religion.
The guardian of the pylon to its heaven is called fame,
Henosis with popularity is the vesture of its claim.
Call me an idiot, lost canary, but never a pigeon,
For I am as a fish swimming towards the sea.
Oh take away the grey, dry land,
Where the obscene caress of name and form
Weeps arid tears of ached and ashen sunlight.
Absorb me into the cloudless perfection of that midnight come
Ere the twilight of the world.
From silence issues wisdom greater than all the words,
Yea, the voice of the word of wisdom issues from silence.
Apparent rari nantes in gurgite vasto.

The Essence of All Life is the contingent of Death.
Death is our formulation of resistance to change;
The fish and the scorpion, fifty in number.
To the sea! To the sea! To the full emptiness of the sea!
This stagnant puddle that we be shall dissolve in the ecstasy
Of the full, endless emptiness of the great and terrible sea!

Ye transient and trivial trinket of time,
What produceth thine sorrow?
For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
Throw off thy chains!
Svatá prostota!, whose chains are they!?

Separate the pristine awareness from that unending parade of thoughts which are constantly telling what reality is from their extremely attenuated perspective. Behind the little person, residing as the light of undiffracted darkness, untouched and pure potential, without boundary, abides, unsullied by mental bias, what is.

Train the mind to attain to a single Object continuously and to the exclusion of all else. The lack of dualistic stimuli will cause the mind to subside while the effort of concentration will keep the awareness unbroken. Persist in this, it is the method and not the end. By following this very specific instruction one will arrive at a very specific psychological result. No more, no less.

Knowledge is nothing more than a self-contained economy of ultimately meaningless variables. The law which governs it is termed reason. Indeed, for a law is, at heart, the codified designation of popularly accepted behavior; in the case of the human mind, such behavior being a condition of the limitations of thought, it is prone to all of the necessary partialities of the same. For example, one cannot envision a triangle-shaped oval, so thoroughly and deeply rooted is the mind into the soil of its own conditioning by concepts. The belief that knowledge can possess noumenal worth is in error. It is only through relation to other ideas, also cut from the same cloth, that a notion can give rise to an approximation of its underlying intention.

"Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought...
