Being Just Being

Being Just Being

A Poem by DDav
"

.

"
all the sights are the same
the eyes are what's different
all the sounds are the same
the ears are what's different

all the natural world is the same
it's our mind's that are different

the law of perspective
all observable phenomena
does exists as it does

'unchanging' moral principles
the basis for human conduct
across oceans of time

        exists as we make it

but how close can we get
to the truth of our neighbors
to the lies of our enemies 
to the true essence of our lovers

some based upon laws
inherent to creation

others based upon beliefs
constructs from mentation 

one lies in harmony with our nature
limited by pure understanding
always rooted in absolute knowledge

the other complied with for reasons
always based upon transient fears
rooted in temporal remunerations  

what is eternal and immutable

what does change with a time

as being very correct
within a context of a construct

against being and just being
as you within yourself as yourself
     
     in it's place within the nature
           you were born from
              slicked in the afterbirth of the truth
                from the flesh and the blood
 of what you came from

yes this difference can be hidden
but only from yourself
for reasons all your own

as choice is reality
so your reality is a choice

" to know when to stop
  to know when you can go no further
  by your own action,
  this is the right beginning."
      The Way of Chuang Tzu (thomas merton)

This goes straight to my library. A true gem, like:
'' you were born from
slicked in the afterbirth of the truth''
kind of blew me away. Totally did.

Its truly just the eyeball, the retina and the brain, in that order. The interpretation of an image, now that's a different thing. That's where lies the reality, as you say, of a man. I must say it is truly a phenomenal subject. Many lifetimes would not be enough to study it, get to the truth of it.
