a cure-all

If there were
something coming
close to being a cure-all,
what would
it be?

Maybe meditation?

Why?
Because a
daily practice
drifts one toward
healthier foods and exercise.
There’s no compelling, this gradual
change comes with
the territory.

How does this work?

One becomes more and more
aware and takes note of the
true consequences
of bad habits
whether
it’s
arguing
too much or
drinking too much
or eating processed foods, etc.

One becomes relaxed with moderation
and situations. Meditation
is also about one’s trip
to find out about
the silence
sages
have
referred to.

Aren’t we always
moving
in
some
direction?

Meditation assists
folks who are curious
and adventurous and wanting
somehow find a way to merge with reality
(the nowness) and by
default are after
an answer
to the
question
Is this all there is?

Is it there’s always more?

age-old questions

Here’s an adventure having to do with
one’s identity by answering
the age-old questions…

Who am I?
and
Why am I here?

Who am I? I’m the one asking
this question: I am
an identity.

Why am I here? I’m here as the representative
of the human being who created me,
and I respond to the name this
smart being was given,
and I also do the
choosing.

That’s it.

the game of life

Is it necessary that most of the questions be answered? If a question is answered, doesn’t the answer usually give birth to more questions? This is good for technological progress, but in spiritual matters, is it that rather than using words to answer questions, one must work physically to uncover the biggest or answers? Is it that rather than forming words, I should act?

For example, rather than theorize or wonder about what may happen when one meditates, is it that one can meditate and find out first hand? Does each individual have the responsibility of uncovering his or her deepest self?

Is the deepest awareness, the source of deepest meaning, the mystery, the cosmos itself? As part of the game of life, does the being give itself up voluntarily and is arrested and locked up by each of our identities?
