Tao #20 ~ Different
Ф

"nothing is good nor bad but thinking makes it so."
what is the difference between yes or no
what does relativity really mean?
black vs white, shades in between?

People are consumed with fears
which team will win
will there be enough beer.

all the while,
while they're having a blast
I observe the present
thus the future and past
like a new born babe
I feel unattached

People crowd the malls
buy and bye
It seems so pointless
I ask myself why?

I must be a fool
no ambition
why am I
the way I am

these people seem
so cute and so witty
selecting their fashions
while snorting the speed

I contrast with me,
a wave on the sea

finding no attraction
in things such as these

these people are moving
in some specific direction
but I am drifting
as if in derelection

I feel so different
so far removed from their world
living in the NOW
sustained by the Tao

 

Let us find the shades of grey and allow the light to shine today!

What can this teach us?


Where does the opening phrase "nothing is good nor bad but thinking makes it so" come from?

Why is it that Americans who went to high school prior to 1960 are more likely to know where this phrase is from?

What is relativity?

Why are people filled with fear?

What can YOU do to reduce or eliminate your own fear?

Why does the observer, the voice of this Tao ask herself "why"?

What does "buy and bye" mean?

Why doesn't the observer join in with the witty people?

Who is more rootless, the observer or the observed?
