Since the dawn of consciousness, mind has grappled
With the mystery of birth and death, creation and destruction.
It has used every device to explain that which can never be explained.
Only in complete surrender to the vastness beyond thought's linear comprehension
Can there be any insight into the choiceless stillness of the unmanifest.

* * * *
Unconditioned, immutable, changeless, untamed, timeless, formless,
Eternal, unburdened, nameless, imperishable, amoral,
Lawless, sovereign, total, absolute, supreme.
Apt descriptions of those who discern
And reside in the immortal origin.

There are teachers at every turn.
Be watchful, they take every form.

* * * *
In the struggle with divine nature,
You must lose to win.

* * * *
The frailties of all life forms are within you.
Your empathy and compassion are warranted.

* * * *
Everyone has a mindset, a filtering that interprets
The reality appearing to appear about them.
The challenge is seeing the relativity of all experience,
That everything is an ephemeral illusion, none more or less real,
That, from beginning to end, every moment is the fleeting dream of godness.

* * * *
No one can tell you what truth really is.
You must explore and discover it yourself.
You must also grasp that it is somewhat akin
To fine dry sand in loose fingers on a windy day.

* * * *
Words, concepts, similes, metaphors, analogies, parables,
Are teaching tools, study guides, not ends in themselves.
