Scattered


IMG_5410-2Scattered

an ability to go with the natural flow

of life

and interests

of the moment.

the feeling of moments flowing in time –

it is the feeling of time –

it is what time is.

it is interactive,

time engaging and the mind responding

and showing and then the reverse takes hold.

it is very good.

some focus
is the minds way
of establishing a boundary
whereas the world is

enormous

and is expanding
in its existence and particulars.

a mind can deal with
a limited subset

but with time
can learn to see
some of the possible subsets
and combine them in a mental impression.

being allows no more.

the mental impressions are ultimately
the makeup
of the internal
sets of constructs
within.

the world is vast and is infinite

right in front of us

every moment and in all moments.

we are not capable of ingesting
it all
at once
and I am in awe of its enormity
and creativity
and balance.

I have called this being scattered.

it is not.

it is a simultaneous dissipation and assembly.

as in zen

it is all.

any mental category is

arbitrary and artificial.
the world is everything

and all at once.

it is a wonderful challenge
to expand ones ability to experience the all,
piece by piece.
and yet to use the mind to unravel its creations,
its mental categories
and to

go back to the senses

and to experience that which
is real and ever present.

aging proves that the world acts linearly

aging in humans, animals, plants
– youth, growth, death.

there is the finite within time
as we pass through linearity.

within our time

here

we can reach out
to the infinite and
never
find the end.
