if you understand, things are just as they are.
if you do not understand, things are just as they are.
- zen proverb
nirvana. enlightenment. whatever you wish to call it. is the complete deconstruction of all of our rigid mental patterns and habits. the complete deconstruction of any and all of our limiting beliefs. this creates a space for honest and true inquiry. brings us to a place where we can experience something completely new. new truth. new reality. new miracle. brings us to a place where we can see things differently. presenting new opportunities. expanding new horizons.
it is from this vantage that we create when we de-create what was and up-cycle into what is. it is from enlightenment. nirvana. bliss. that we forge into the moment as we contemplate the cloth before us and then reach out and change it. change ourselves. change our world around us.
it is cold outside, though getting warmer, if only by comparison. i am lethargic today. feeling rather like a bear and longing to get back to my interrupted hibernation. but these cloths won't quiet down and let me doze next to the hearth fire. green tea is steeping on the wood stove. perhaps a warm mug will breathe contentment into this moment and i will drift back into sleep. dream. renew. return to these tasks refreshed.
