who receives this intoxication of absolute wonder-
of the complete non-understanding of all that 'is', including their own self-
no longer needs a reasonable explanation of life,
because they are wholly free from the mind's interventions;
for them there is nothing gained by trying to apprehend an explanation
...of the unexplainable.
Ideas no longer matter, knowledge is gone for good, and the whole of life
swells and returns to its
original pristine spectacularness.
"...I start to float away,
and the whole world seems very stange,
in a pleasant kind of way."
The Way of Wonder
you know who you are and you know what you want.
we encounter a world
where all things are at rest in the same way.
Then a tree becomes a mystery,
a cloud a revelation,
each man a cosmos of whose riches
we can only catch glimpses.
Knowing comes: The body is not singular like a corpse,
but singular like a salt grain still in the side of the mountain.
we are at the centre of the circle
and there we sit
while Yes and No
chase each other around the circumference.
