What is all this that you think you have? You don’t.

Clinging to ideas about things and people is just like clinging to ideas. It’s noise in your head that your perceptions have been shouting at you.

Just stop. Just be here. Mould deeply into your environment and allow it to influence you but don’t become part of it. Let your heart hang free between the two worlds; holding hands between your inner free awareness and your lens to the world. Even simple awareness of your heart area as you inhale brings compassion, and as you exhale brings you freedom from attachment.

Sparkling at me

Asking me a question

Whether or not I want to know more

Or is that the question?

There are two questions.

Do I want to?

Am I willing to?

Curiosity killed the cat.

But the cat isn’t here anymore to tell us if it was worth it.

She found her answer.

Would she rather pace around not knowing?

I’d like to paw at something that won’t kill me.
