GIVES AUTHENTIC RELIEF
FROM ACCUMULATED TRAUMAS
A SIMPLE AWARENESS VIA SOUL
NOW’S SOLE PERCEPTION
Of one thing I was certain:
all that appears to be, including myself,
was not all there was,
because there was something around that was better –-
and I determined then to find it.
I discovered that while I could not make it happen,
I could nevertheless put myself in situations
conducive to its recurrence and thus,...
lying on the grass under the tree in the hills,
or floating on the sea, ...
which I now recognize as fleeting moments of no-self --
moments that would one day be the whole of time.

The world becomes stranger, the pattern more complicated
Of dead and living. Not the intense moment
Isolated, with no before and after,...
And not the lifetime of one man only
But of old stones that cannot be deciphered.
A time for the evening under lamplight
(The evening with the photograph album).
When here and now cease to matter.
Here or there does not matter
We must be still and still moving
Into another intensity
For a further union, a deeper communion...
The wave cry, the wind cry, the vast waters
Of the petrel and the porpoise.
—T. S. Eliot
