while I only become dumber
Beingness is the great salesman selling itself to itself with ever new labels, ever new cons. Slick slogans like ‘I Am that I Am’ and ‘Live in the Now’ - trademarked words like ‘Birth’ ‘Death’ ‘Consciousness’. In that back alley called existence Beingness whispers ‘Hey buddy, I got some really good stuff here’ and Beingness is the alley and Beingness is the mark and Beingness is the con artist. … a la la the dakinis sing. - t.k.

"If one day I am given a moment in solitude with you I will trample the two worlds underfoot and dance forever." Rumi - without an 'I' or a 'you', without even a trace of the 'two worlds' ... trampling underfoot in a dance of exceedingly formless form joy heartbreak love. No 'one' survives this mystery beyond Being and Non-being, twoness and Oneness - and yet the body remains as the last step of Love's dance. - t.k. recent talks
Others grow wiser, more sure, more subtle, while I only become dumber .... dumber and dumber unto into luminous stupidity. Leaving duties to those who know something, wallowing in the mud this turtle is happy. - t.k.
