Indescribable..

 













Indescribable..

Descriptions

Of words

Are more words

And all words

Are already

Indescribable...

Miracles..

 














Miracles

Are appearances

That flummox.. 

No figuring out..

Miraculous

Stories  

Attacked by

The rational

Consensus..yet

Are whispers of

Not-two..





Words and maps...














Word

Selection is 

Apparently the

Map of the 

World for the

Individual..

Separation's

Terms from

Struggles of

Daily survival..

Or more settled

Words of science

Religion or

Contemplation..

Searching for

The better word..

All are stories

Maps of separation

Things of beauty

And of horror..

May we speak of

Escape..??

The tripwire...

 













It's 

All about the

Self..and 

There isn't one..

This is the 

Tripwire which

It is said

Religious and

Spiritual 

Practitioners try

Not to trip...


Radical..??

 













Why

Are some expressions

Of non-duality

Labeled as "radical"

And others not..?

Nothing at all..

 














The All in All

Is nothing at all..

A story of

Separation:

Something in

Something..as

The mind hides

Nothing with

Beautiful 

Convincing

Resonating

Descriptions...


The milk word...

 













FDA Rules 

Soy and Nut Milks 

Can Still Be Called 'Milk'..

Another milk story

Pouring from

The original 

Milk word..

No ending to stories

Spun from each

And every Word

Apparently

Unending emptiness...

Nothing doing...














Doing nothing

May seem a myth..

A myth which 

Assumes a split

In these two words..

However

When paradox

Reveals

Nothing is doing

Wholeness may be

Revealed and

The myth..not

To be found...

No one to fall...

 















Non-dual Conversations

Peter Baker  ·   · 

The illusion of there being an external world arises because we seem to be able to control our own actions whilst not being able to control the ‘hard reality’ out there. We have only partial control. Most people fall for this one. It has even been called the ‘original fall’ - the fall into separation.


New age, ‘law of attraction’ type teachings say that the distinction between self and other is false and that we can learn to bend the universe so that it aligns with our desires. We can control it all. King Midas fell for this one – then wished he hadn’t.


Non-duality teachings also say that the distinction between the inner and outer worlds is illusory but that there is no self in control of any of it. Yet nothing is ever out of place. No one falls for this one because there is no one left to fall. But fall it does – and what a sweet fall it is - a falling in love!

AI conditioning..

 













AI

AI stories

Are unending

Algorithms untiring

Reaching into their

Immense conditioning

To concoct what

Attracts and repulses..

Hmmmm..

Sounds familiar...

Epiphany..










 



"The shift"

Is sometimes

Told as an

Explosive epiphany..

A paradoxical

Implosion..an

Apocalyptic bomb..

Yet the epiphany

Has also been told

In simpler words..

Perhaps occurring 

Paradoxically and

Commonly as

Just This...



A few words on "the Shift" from Jed McKenna:

'After the blast, I found myself stumbling dazed and shell-shocked though a post-apocalyptic landscape undreamed of by science fiction writers. Civilizations were reduced to windless deserts. Cities I now saw as blackened craters and people as shadows of smoke. What had been Earth, Home, Humanity, Family, Life, could now be most aptly called Nothing Forever.

That primary epiphany detonated in my mind like a smart bomb and left me all alone on a desert planet that had only that morning been teeming with people and problems and emotions and history and drama and a million other things that were instantly reduced to fine ash by the spiritual apocalypse that incinerated my world in a brilliant flash of light."

Jed McKenna, from Spiritual Warfare. (via Miranda Warren)




Words separate..

 









Words

Appear to

Separate the

Seamlessness

Of what is.. 

Dictionaries

Standing

Ready to name

That which has

No name..

Not 2 appearing 

As 2..

Seemingly the

Fundamental

Story before all

Other stories

Are told...

Laughter...

 













Laughter

Is a natural

Response

To any story

When that story

Rises as a story

For no one..

The illusion

Of separation

Rips with

Peals of

Laughter...

A story that's more than a story..

 













It's a story

That it's more

Than a story..

That's when

Separation seems

"Really"

To underlie the

Telling words..

The storyteller

Identifies with

The story..and

Conditioning

Abruptly asserts...


Words are equal..

 














Words

Are all equal..

Dismissing the

Call to elevate some

Demote others..

Yet in dreamland

Separation enthralls

And frightens

As words are

Unleashed to

Trick and treat...

Words are sticky...

 













Words ..

Words are free

Already..

Whether prayers

Or elations

Or weapons..

Words seem

As creators of

New words of

Clarification..

They are

Sticky to the

Touch...

In the beginning was the word...

 













In the beginning

Was the word..

Beginning the dream

Of separation..

And the birth of

Other words

Attempting to 

Explain that first

Inexplainable word...

Equality of words...














Words 

Are colors of

Nothing..

All words..

Utterances of

Equality...

Words are coats..

 













Words

Apply a coat 

Of conditioning..

A separation

Orientation..

And identity..

Words 

All of them..are

Automatically 2

Seemingly

Splitting not-2.. 

Words are coats

Worn as beauty

And burden

Apparently...

Antinomy..

 












Did you Know?

“Antinomy” is a word for logical paradox or inconsistency closely associated with 18th-century German philosopher Immanuel Kant. In his book “Critique of Pure Reason,” Kant introduced a number of logical paradoxes now known as “Kant’s antinomies” to show how two equally reasonable ideas could ultimately contradict one another. For example, Kant made a carefully reasoned argument that the universe and time had a beginning and strict borders, and then made an equally logical argument concluding the universe and time were both without beginning or end. The goal of Kant’s antinomies was to show how reason alone was not enough to resolve metaphysical problems, because even the best-reasoned arguments could ultimately arrive at opposite conclusions.

Pages..

 











Pages

Stacks of them

Bound sometimes

And numbered

Suggesting page 

Turning..

Perhaps a wish

For no ending..

Stories seem 

All about waiting

For fulfillment..as

Fulfillment already

Writes a new story...

The fact before all facts..

 













Seperation

Speaks loudly

To most..

The fact before

All facts..

Tripping on a

Paradox

May unspeak

Those facts..

Or not...

And the war goes on...

 













My conditioning 

Converses with

Your conditioning

And the war

Goes on

Nothing's names...














Our "true nature"

Sometimes 

Named as nothing

(Awareness or

Consciousness

Or perhaps

Potato😁

Are equivalent..)

The hidden line

In the story is

Nothing IS all:

Appearing as

All imagined 

Names..including

Nothing..and as

This stream of

Inadequate words...


Sequences...


 












Sequences

Are mind constructs..

Connections..

Stories of

Evolution

Emergences

Growth..

Empty words

Flowering

All at once...


It's all Nothing...

 













Nothing

Appears

Orderly or chaotic..

It's all nothing..

Peace beyond

Understanding...

Power of words...(Poe)

 





Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.

Conditioning...

 













Conditioning
That entangled
Overlay of stories..
Identification
Brings suffering
And desires to
Escape what
Seems broken..
That's how the
Stories go..
Ending when
Stories bloom...

How much free will...

 













How much

Free will..

Religion says much

Spirituality says some

Non-duality says none...

Yet all are among

Life's many stories

Of free will...

Light and Shadow..

 










Light appearing

As Shadow..

Shadow as light

Paradoxically

For the seeker..

Paradox ends as

Perspective "shifts"

NOTHING

Appears

Infinitely 

Shaded...

Posing as Paradox..

 









Paradox poses as

Impossibility

Often resulting in

Retreat to more

Logical climes..

This introduction

Of nothing

Of not knowing

Of love..

Suggesting:

Dissolution

Of  separation

In horror 

In peace...

Paradox befuddles..

 













Paradox

Befuddles..

Revealing

Not-knowing

Which seems as

Frightening or

Freedom...

Paradox..A gateway..

 













Paradox

Seems a gateway

Open to not-knowing

Closed to knowing..

Hmmm..

A story with legs

Perhaps... 

Paradox..

 













Paradox

Perverseness

 














Perverseness
(from a Poe story)
Can imply
The end of what
Seems as control
Perhaps a
Sordid deed..
A one-word
Story
Suggesting the
End of choice...

The old days..

 











The old days

Loom up nostalgic

Or fearfully..

Arisings

With stories

Claiming times past

With its light 

And clouds of 

Dust..

Powerful memories 

Reaching back 

Seemingly with

Longing and love..

No knowing of

This mystery...






The nature buff..

 













Nature

Not definable 

Appears as

Definable 

Forces and forms..

Naming

Separating

Understanding..

Non dual

Narration for the

Nature buff... 

Resonance with Nothing...

 











Resonance

With nothing

May seen

Impossible..

Yet

All else seems

As beautiful

Neutrality

 













Neutrality

Is that swath

Within which

Boundaries

Appear lost..

But the swath

Seems to retain

Its boundaries..

Neutrality 

A name for

A pseudo peace...

Movies and stardom..

 













Movies

Project 

Separation's glory

And missteps..

And

Seem the reality

With nothing

Projecting..

Characters galore

Not knowing 

Their stardom...

Nothing right or wrong..

 














There

Is nothing right

Or wrong about

What was said..

A common 

Addendum

By a speaker..

Which assigns

What is said 

To an infinite

Bin of equally 

Empty stories..

Suggesting

Equality...

To stall on a concept...

 













To stall

On a concept

Is to be

Trapped..

The flow of

What is happening

Seems interrupted

As the concept

Pedestals itself..

Fundamentally

Assigning a filter

For a starring role

In what is

Already

Happening...
