The problem is me,
is you,
not life,
But our narrated version of life.
Is and always has been the issue.
We are born in to a world
full of this, bogged down personality dramas
and we think and hope that the way out
is to create a healthier version or
dare I say a more terrible version
of what we have experienced.
Some work at being a more clever version
others at a more beautiful version
our very own creation pulls us in
to the realm of fantasy
and we fight to prove
we are the chosen one.
Rarely do we realize
that we can just peal away
the layers of mascara
and just be.
Be without you and me.
We must leave a mark
we are told right from the start,
To oppose in order to be.
Secret participants to the cult of personality.
Trapped in the world of pretence
long forgotten.
that essentially we are free.

I'm sure Buddhist Monks would highly differ with you on that, and so might I.

To be something is worldly. To be nothing, is Divine.

thank you for writing, this has inspired me to write a bit about what you speak in form of my messy song...
please feel free to comment in any form you wish.

i agree, to some degree.
as at least from my view,
change this change that...try this or that
as to simply be is not yet for me plain to see,
mind and heart are not in harmony.

i liked what you said about peeling layers of mascara,
this is what i try,
about cleaning the house and let it fly,
not special and no you and me.
no concepts, no right or wrong,
simply free, simply be,
what we are essentially,
about that i agree.

thinking and emotions are part of drama
how long will i participate in my own play?
i don't know but i wish simply to stop
and the i to drop,
but in my observation everything seems part of the way.

mind and heart,
sometimes united, sometimes apart.
both having desires, root of the problems of i.
learning how to cut those weeds,
cleaning the windows of the house.
as both are players and making plays...
mind and heart, sometimes like cat and mouse

yet, both are pure and naturally giving at the inner core of the unborn,
how to purify and get rid of drama of me?
i decided to start at the belly
and work the way up,
learning to let go and unite the mind trinity.

maybe a new drama, a new pretence and another fantasy?
well, until i try i won't know,
for now instincts are simply sayin' to try and follow...

from life i ask sincerely,
please teach and point to any mistakes,
and windows of the house will get and than stay clean.
but without both rain and sun
no rainbows can be seen.

thanks for sharing I enjoyed your song! also I understand the feeling of droping something that feels wrong. The funny thing is we are always able to drop anything but rarely do we see that option. Once we truly see it, then were good to go.a reply to: UniFinity

IIm interested in why you would think that Buddhist monks would differ? not that I would mind if they do. As I differ at times with them also.a reply to: JesusXst

I recently made a new version, where all is known.

Now I have my things organised and my friends in place.
