The butterfly
Never quite settles
And flutters by and
Always almost stops
But never does

You find a dead one
Still beautiful

This
Is a butterfly's
Life







To want not wanting
Is wanting






At what point did God
Withdraw
And leave you to your fate

It was now
In the beginning
In the form of an
Unknowable
Infinite
Momentum

Which is so available
You can't have it
Because you are the
Result








Every moment
The truth is withheld
From itself









Can anyone say
What a fool you are
For any reason

You are only
Doing your best
At being yourself
And this is
Entirely good enough

For everything you do
Is done exactly
As you would do it








The world is always
About to be better
And leaves a
Trail of trying








Things are so exactly
Like they are
You wouldn't believe it

Not one single thing
Is different
Than it is
Now or ever









Everything
Returns to nothing
Every moment







Because
An unpresent moment

Never exists
Nothing is ever
Lost









Its absolutely no use
Ranting against the truth

So when you see "idiots"
Doing that
Realize you are
Ranting against the truth

Yet even your ranting
Is true

Nothing is not the truth
So there is nothing
To rant against

Only
Nothing to be






The thought
I shouldn't have done that
Is just as inevitable
As what what you did








Truth isn't a concept
But what is it?
Both lines above
Are concepts

Concepts are useless
Is another concept
Silence is a concept
When said

Everything's a concept
Except what?

It seems you can't say
Anything
And get away with it

Except what you can't say







If you want to read
A good book on
The meaning of life
Write your own

Because you do
Anyway







Whether you mix with
Other Advaita believers
Or not
Doesn't matter
Advaita still applies







The desperate seeker
Is neither imperfect
Nor in any way
Incomplete







Oneness is one
Before it splits into
Believers in oneness







Everyone
Goes around
Thinking they're themselves
But really they're
Everyone












The intellect excels
In drawing room
Conversation
But at the
Liver and kidney level
It's less
Impressive









Every sage speaking
Is God speaking
Every fool babbling
Is God raving on

By divine co-incidence
Your birthday is God's

When you die
He expires
And neither exist

As one







You are so gullible
You believe your own
Story







In writing about God
It's so easy to make a slip
And say something
Sensible
That stands out like

A sore thumb







Not knowing
Is another golden rule
To be gone
Beyond






The less you recognize
The clearer things
Become






I am the director
 I set up the cameras
To make a movie of
All of life

But no one was shooting
The camera man
Or me

So I set up another crew
To get some good shots
Of us

And another team to get
Them
And so on
And on






The opposites are
The same







Lila is a hilarious
Farce
That only you
Can take seriously








A worm sees
A worm's world
With a worm's knowledge

And it's the same
With you







There is the Almighty
The infinite universe
And the eternal omnipresence

And then there is
Me






Every idea
Is yours
