The Uncarved Block

Follow the Yellow Brick Tao

To bring you to this moment of now

 

See clearly

That words appearing

pairing and sharing

Their meanings

Their caring

 

They all arise

When you gaze quietly

As does the uncarved block.

 

Did you ever notice

That thought

‘What was I thinking’

Or  ‘What was I going to say’

And wonder where

Did the previous train go

Or from where

Did this one arrive today?

 

Do you notice the space between

As I did last week when thinking

And happened to glance behind ‘mind’

Prising between the sliver of silver coated reflect

 

To see the me-myriad that colours each thought

And how an old dialogue had been replaced all a-new

The evolute all swift and tidied up

More aware

More open

More light

 

Then from that space

It showed me just right

That words just be words

No matter how poignant

 

Whether the cadence was a constant

Or kept changing  like crazy paving

 

That real power remains

In the hidden potential

The unlimited benevolent wealth

Of the word that awaits……

Like time never does

 

To flow in to the hand

That wields the power

Of the mighty destroyer

Or beneficent creator

 

And did you notice

That we keep thinking, rewriting, stalking our scripts

Over and over

The grooves are so worn

Stuck in them

Or torn between them

 

Wanting the new

Haunted by the old

And every so often

Delicate enough to be bold

 

Did you perchance ever catch yourself

Aware

That you just keep filling

Without a care

 

Feeding and regurgitating

Around and around

Until no more man kind

 

We fell so deeply

That we lost the vision to keep

That last piece of wisdom

That last drop of nectar

 

We have filled with

And spilled all

The spoils of parents’ toils

 

Did we stop to notice

It all arises

From the space

In between, behind and beyond

What we think

What we know

 

And this

My Dear Darling

This

Is

What I love

 

About the uncarved block………
