AS WE ARE NOW IN
THAT WHICH CREATES ORIGINAL LIFE IN FORM
UNHINDERED, UNCLOUDED BY HUMAN THOUGHTS/PERCEPTIONS
"PEACE BE STILL!"
TSUNAMIS AND SINKHOLES ARE QUIETED
PEACE THAT PASSETH ‘NORMAL’ REALITY*

A Great Pause

AFTER yesterday's OceanSpeak titled
A GREAT PAUSE
It used to be
That when I would wake in the morning
I could with confidence say,
“What am ‘I’ going to
That was before the seed
There are two of us housed
In this body,
Doing the shopping together in the market and
Tickling each other
While fixing the evening’s food.
All the internal instruments play the same music:
“God, what love-mischief can 'We’ do
For the world
My right hand has written all the poems
that I have composed…
My left hand has not written a single poem.
But my right hand does not think,
‘Left Hand, you are good for nothing.’
My right hand does not have a superiority complex.
That is why it is very happy…
My left hand does not have any complex at all.
In my two hands there is the kind of wisdom
called the wisdom of nondiscrimination.
and my right hand was not very accurate
and instead of pounding on the nail
it pounded on my finger.
It put the hammer down and took care
of my left hand in a very tender way,
as if it were taking care of itself…
that I have taken good care of you
and you have to pay me back in the future.’
There was no such thinking…
‘Right Hand, you have done me a lot of harm
— give me that hammer, I want justice.’
My two hands know that they are members
of one body; they are in each other.
