WHAT DID YOU FIND ON YOUR WAY TO THE ABSOLUTE INEVITABLE

 

In the life long search for the undefined promises of youth ------
how much did you age while looking for Leon’s magic wet spot?
What is it you’ve found along that arduous way? What did you keep?
What did you learn to believe? Is knowledge the value of the past?

Did you glimpse your idyll or see the thousands of footprints gone before you?
Do you remember the beauty of solitary golden dawns, scarlet sunsets, infinite love?
Or did you trudge your way through, eyes down, avoiding both love and war?
Did you live on in the weathered landscape of “this is all there is?”

Always moving forward, stumbling and dancing in sun, rain, blizzard, hurricane;
when all the dust has been swallowed, wetness evaporated from your clothes
your tattered shoes worn, holey, covered in mud & filth again; what did you find?
A fiery hell, the darkness of despair or breathing room filled with life, amity, and rest?

Death and dying are the great evocators of regret and fear of the true unknown.
They are the doors to the Dharma, Nirvana (not the band), Paradise, Heaven.
117 (and more) billion souls before you travelled that same way in time and space.
Why fear the absolute inevitable, when you can embrace the release? You choose.

  3. It's when we're not ready to release that the fear sets in.
