"Know all things to be like this:
A mirage, a cloud castle,
A dream, an apparition,
Without essence, but with qualities that can be seen.

Know all things to be like this:
As the moon in the bright sky
In some clear lake reflected,
Though to that lake the moon had never moved.

Know all things to be like this:
As an echo that derives
From music, sounds and weeping,
Yet in that echo is no melody.

Know all things to be like this:
As a magician makes illusions
Of horses, oxen, carts and other things,
Nothing is as it appears."

- Gautama Buddha

we are like that too.

confronting this is very profound.

I am the MacDaddy of Heimlich County, I play it Straight Up Yo!

....I embrace my desire to feel the rhythm, to feel connected enough to step aside and weep like a widow, to feel inspired, to fathom the power, to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain, to swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human......
Om Namah Shivaya, I tell you What!

In our mind world, qualities of the universe are visible, & tangible, while made of dream stuff like clouds.

In our mind world, things are the reflected results of their passing energy.

Yet in that echo is no melody.




In our mind world, things may ripple and continue as interacting echoes of their passing energy. (which is how we sense melody across a span of time)

In our mind world, objects are not objects other than fading reflections and reconstructions of passing energy.

The more knowledge, the more grief.
