And she would sometimes tell me ..." You're chasing a dream...there's nothing there...you know that...right...?"

Yes...I'd answer back...I know...
But all the goddamn knowing in the world doesn't change a darn thing....!

Yet it still happens...till it don't...

Life just doing itself...

And no control....

All that investment in the self....in others...

It's not just investment in money that gives zero returns....
Time and care and love......
It all gives us our sense of self...

And impossible to let go....
The self is the clinging....
The mirage can't ever let go of itself....
For the simple reason.....
That there's nothing and no one there to let go....
Who'd have thunk....

Oh the efforting was there all right....
But the harder I tried....
The tighter got the noose....

I kept telling myself....
Cut your losses and move on....
Something I'd once heard a financial expert giving sage advice say....

But there was nowhere left to go....
No back....no front....
Stymied....
I was caught between a rock and a really hard place.....

It was utterly heart breaking...when it kept turning up empty...
It was probably the emptiness that broke my heart really...
Acknowledging that there was nothing and no one there....
Nor here....
And no one who could do or not do a thing....

Tears....

Or Full Of Everything

I like to say, MAI, I am a spark of the eternal energy or life-force that has the assignment of manifesting as every conceivable physical manifestation to obtain a working knowledge of them all before I am required to become the embodiment of them all. Once the Phoenix builds its nest and burn itself up it is preparing to forget everything in preparation for another eternity of manifestations.

At the time we are the life-force of the Phoenix we are Full Of Everything but after forgetting we become Empty Of Everything only to refill our spark with the comprehension of everything once again.

"And The Beat Goes On."
