– assuming there is a proper road from here to the sun for your oxen –
how many thousands of years would it take you?
it would take you almost as much time.
If you were to take the train,
you would get there faster.
If you were to take a plane,
you would arrive even sooner.
you would arrive in eight minutes and a few seconds.
That someone who travels in an ox cart, that is,
who only uses the physical body’s means,
the old methods to solve all problems,
will only discover the truth thousands of years later.
who walks at the speed of ordinary feelings,

will go faster.
moves at the speed of light
discovers the truth immediately.

Only we, in our arrogance, push out beyond what we belong to
for some empty freedom.
we could rise up rooted, like trees.
Instead we entangle ourselves in knots of our own making

Even a bird must do that before he can fly.

Anita Barrows/Joanna Macy translation
you're forced to discover who you are without all the beliefs,
expectations, views, & self-image provided by some teacher or system.
The calculating mind gives way to the intuitive mind,
Knowing without Thinking.
Sweat is holy water, prayer beads,
pearls of liquid that release your past.
The more you dance... the more you sweat, the more you pray.
The more you pray,
the closer you are to ecstasy.
shape-shifting through archetypal energy,
between your darkness and fields of light,
your body and spirit,
your heaven and hell,
until you land in the moment of sweet surrender;
as a dancer,
disappear into the dance.
~ Gabrielle Roth
to prove you are who you think you are—today.
But it’s a total energy drain.
You’re so busy performing a role
that you miss out on the freedom to improvise,
to be real rather than rehearsed.
