36 hours. Time. Togetherness.


Ha K@L,
Heb je die vette sound al ?
Moeten we nog eens over ouwehoeren.
Gr, M

I)
36 hours. Time. Togetherness.

On the verge of complete partial enlightenment.
On the verge of understanding the root cause of complete misunderstanding.
On the verge of cessation of all opposites, dissimilarities, distinctions.
On the verge of overcoming, unifying, merging, surpassing all opposites, the yin and the yang, the male and the female.
On the verge of togetherness.
Only took 36 hours.

Time.
Say we all had all the time in the world.

On the verge of grasping the unimportance of all argument, of cessation of all thougths, of all positions, of all conflict.
On the verge of dissolution of all chains.

Peace, tranquility.
Seeing samsara*, sensing nirvana**.
Across the ocean.

(Walk a mile in my shoes, and i’ll walk a mile in yours.
Lend me your red glasses and i’ll lend you my blue ones.)

* samsara: “(mistakingly) the unsettled and agitated mind through which reality is perceived”, in wikipedia
** nirvana: “the imperturbable stillness of mind after the fires of desire, aversion, and delusion have been finally extinguished”, in wikipedia
