No one knows
What's going on
They just dress up
And strut round
As if they know something

Dressing up
In a loin cloth is
The same

People think they're God

And they are!


It's all just God
Playing
Dress ups








A change in the weather
Is serious

Hats blow off
And boats tug
At their moorings

But a change in
Your philosophy
Of the meaning of life
Is often hard to
Detect








You can't waste every day
Searching for truth

You have to search
For food
And shoes
And love

Then rest
And start again

So please!
Take it easy






All the character flaws
And other things you
Hate about yourself
And want to change

Those things are
You

To be presented
To the world

This is the freedom
You are after

But don't worry
It's happening
As we speak








What is it that
You have to know
To be what you
Already are?

Truth comes
Not when you know
But when you allow yourself
To not know







Where is the so called
Illusion?

Look here
It's gone

Look away
It's here








Searching
Is looking with an idea
Of finding

Seeing
Is watching the light
Bounce off
What is







Everything in the world
Is done by
A person like
You










Advaita
Means
Not two
Or
All is one

You can't then
Go and start a club
And make two of it

Not two
Means
All is already
Over
There's nothing to do

You are
One
Single
Thing

Along with any
Goods and chattels
Or thoughts
You think
Are yours

So don't bother
Looking for it

You are it
It is you

It is it










Delivering justice
Is very
Time consuming

Said God

So I just
Lash out at
Anyone









You will sometimes
Be required to
Suffer embarrassment
Or humiliation
Or terrible self doubt
Or great pleasure

Depending on
How things
Happen










Maybe if you read
A powerful clue
You could understand
This

And enjoy it
Unafraid

This
Is
A powerful clue

But what you
Want to enjoy
Is already here
As this
While you read

Like right
Now!

Are you wasting your time?

No

Because wasting time
Is this

You can never be distracted
From this

See!
Just for an instant

This
Eternal instant







All knowledge
Is manmade
And adds up to
Nothing

Which is exactly
The requirement for
Understanding







You will never even
See an illusion
Let alone see
Through it

An illusion fools you
And is what you
Don't know about

The instant you
Recognize illusion
It no longer is

Illusion is all around
And everywhere
As a rumour
Of yours

But you can't see it







I bought some
New speakers
For my laptop
With subwoofer
And surround sound
And it was
Such an improvement
So very very good

For a few songs

Then I went back to
Searching
For the meaning
Of life








You didn't ask
To be who you are

But God asked you

And gave you a whiff of
The divine anaesthetic

Now you stretch
And yawn
Struggling to wake
From this dream
Of sleeping

While
Playing your role
With perfect
Precision








What's next?
Is a thought that
Was
Next

What will I do?
Is a thought
Already
Done







God is simply
The explanation for
What you don't know

Which is everything







Not everyone agrees on
The most genuine
Fully enlightened guru

Which says something about
Where that idea
Occurs

And this idea







There
Is
Free will


God willing






Unless
The theory of everything
And the philosophy of life
Contain equations for
A broken heart

I must return to
Not knowing
