Continue To Digest The Emptiness

The wise teach,

all things are
connected in the Universe,
and remain so throughout time –

continue to digest the emptiness.

As gatekeepers

to all things connected
we open the gates to experience,
learning to love and care for others –

continue to digest the emptiness.

The foolish

give rise to aliens,
lacking knowledge of the whole,
“. . . see the dragon in my garage” –

continue to digest the emptiness.

Trying

to understand the messages
in our fleeing experiences,
seeking to be identical with the norm –

continue to digest the emptiness.

Yet,

our impermanent passing experience
is where knowledge exist,
maximizing the significance of the whole –

continue to digest the emptiness.

Unused knowledge

is not retained,
like the fruit of the tree,
decays as soon as it is ripe –

continue to digest the emptiness.

Seek not to ripen

on the tree of knowledge,
for knowledge that has crystallized
quickly loses clarity of the whole –

continue to digest the emptiness.

As our reality

is narrowed,
our ability to connect is lessened, thus
diminishing meaning and value –

continue to digest the emptiness.

Lacking actualization,

should not stop
us from crawling,

with the “struggling ant” –

continue to digest the emptiness.

Continue to crawl . . .
