Habitation

 

Marriage is not
a house or even a tent

it is before that, and colder:

the edge of the forest, the edge
of the desert 
                    the unpainted stairs 
at the back where we squat 
outside, eating popcorn

the edge of the receding glacier

where painfully and with wonder
at having survived even
this far

we are learning to make fire 

Margaret Atwood

In Search Of Nothingness — “What?”   1 comment

Self-Portrait 

The more I learn about myself
the less I know about others.

I feel good about who I am,
questioning the good of others.

I may understand my behavior,
wondering about that of others.

This may change with a renewal
of dialogue among humans.

I accept who I have become,
I accept the responsibility for me.

I accept my humanness, but
not the organization of society.

To live in the actual world,
we develop an ability to cope.

By coping, I first came to know,
before I came to know-nothingness,

thus having an opposite for interaction,
allowing me to continue to search

sometimes not putting forth enough effort,
causing anxiety, guilt, and despair.

I am able to know by being in the moment,
I am able to know-nothingness by becoming.

The more I am able to know-nothingness
the more I am able to achieve enlightenment

by living life according to my possibilities
as I am able to actualize them.
