I'VE SEEN HIM


    How far 

    Have we 

    Got 

    On 

    Our way to where?  










    I’ve Seen Him!

AS OF NOW CHRISTMAS NO LONGER EXISTS


 

 Except for

 ~ On the calendar,             equivalent of April         Fools’ Day

~ Frenzied marketing and buying (MONEY)


~ An increase in the animals and birds needlessly tortured and killed
~ An increase in drunkenness and self-indulgence

      And, oh YES


~ Self- indulgent role-playing in the temples of discredited pretend-religions




So, what are YOU doing this year?

END GAME

Wildebeest, antelope and gazelle
stand on the Plain of Serengeti
where they can see only too well
lying in the River Grumeti
the jungle eye and hungry smile
of the eternally waiting crocodile.

THE FOURTH STAGE


The Second Stage is, like the caterpillar's.  

Eating. Eating.
Physical and mental food.
To make the body healthy and strong
and the mind well-informed
and ready for

 

The Third Stage. Digestion.
With the body healthy and the mind fully fed
(no more experience or information needed),
so that the simple but profound Truth about everything
dawns in

 

The Fourth Stage. The tentacle AWAKES!

NO BRAINER


            A Man who identifies with 
  mind and body is wrong from the start. 

He spends his whole life 
munching away at fallen apples
from the Tree of Knowledge.


Until a wheelbarrow comes to cart
the body and mind away.

I AM THE PROPHET OF DOOM!

WHO'S SORRY NOW?


If the branch on which I am sitting breaks,
why should I blame the branch
(or the tree)?

THE FOUR STAGES OF MAN


STAGE ONE: 
EGG (NOT BIOLOGICAL)

BUT SIMILAR to the first stage Lepidoptera insects go     through. Appearing out of not-knowing-where-from      as an

egg,

and on its way, through a complicated metamorphosis, to its unimaginable DESTINY:



a BUTTERFLY!


And MAN? Appearing out of not-knowing-where-from as an  

egg,

and on its way, through a complicated metamorphosis, to its unimaginable DESTINY as


?

NO!

EXEMPLARY BEHAVIOUR


It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,


I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

PUBLIC SCHOOL

PUBLIC SCHOOL










       is where they teach a FISH

     

         
                                 to RUN


                                       

                               before it can SWIM.

FOOTPRINTS ON THE MOON


    Blue shorts, stained white shirt,
    street market playground of dust and dirt.


    Without the moral imperative of must
    and the enforced need to understand,
    he dances in a circle,
    holding a yellowed bodhi leaf in each hand.


    With all the self-assurance of thirty inches high,
    he has no need to wonder how or when or why.



HELLO!

NAKED

Standing under the Tree of Knowledge, 



  the man identified with his body


 
And felt naked 



And started to use the skins of other beings
to hide in.



Then he identified with his mind


And felt naked
And started to use the thoughts of other beings
to hide in.
