Being Ready

Trickling adjectives, they are
the way of the words
flowing from your sleeping mind
where no one tries to be, create,
or halt whatever’s coming,

for “I need my attention
to be ready,
so will not focus it on anything”,

to stay within this world
that stifles, suffocates, reality
– the world I’ve always known as real.

Quote #85

“The mind and the body are so intimately connected that ultimately we cannot tell the difference between them. Ultimately, indeed, they tell the same stories about us. But the body is the more visible aspect of the being and so may speak for itself. When we align the body we also align the mind. The body is the hologram of the being, as Alexander Lowen has said. ‘The body does not lie.’”
― Alcmaeon, Concerning Nature, 6th century B.C.
