Continue to digest the emptiness

The wise say all things are
connected in the Universe,
And remain so throughout time
Continue to digest the emptiness.

The foolish create aliens
from the unknown
“See the dragon in my garage.”
Continue to digest the emptiness.

Still trying to understand the message
in our fleeing experience
we seek to be identical with the stable.
Continue to digest the emptiness.

Our impermanent passing experience
is where knowledge exist
by not minimizing the significance of the whole
Continue to digest the emptiness.

Nothing can be retained
Even knowledge, like the fruit of the tree
decays as soon as it is ripe
Continue to digest the emptiness.

As gatekeepers to all things connected
By opening the gates to experience
We learn to love and care for others
Continue to digest the emptiness.

Seek not to ripen on the tree of knowledge
for knowledge that is “crystal-clear.”
only decays when ripe
Continue to digest the emptiness.

To stop connecting is to
Is to see the fruit as a constant red
Let the shade is continually changing
Continue to digest the emptiness.

Because we may lack the realization
Should stop us from crawling
with the “struggling ant.”
Continue to digest the emptiness.

As our reality is narrowed
Our ability to connect
Creating meaning and value is diminished
Continue to digest the emptiness.
