Emotions are fleeting …
The 3 year old weeps for 3 minutes,
then continues to play
My emotions are ingested
by my mental activity:
Sad after a fight,
Turning into mental pain
I want to end this pain
I hear nothing but
fed by pain
the original emotion long gone
To ease the pain,
mind creates options:
* blame someone and
reduce or finish all encounters
* blame the universe: nihilism
the universe must be empty
nothing but matter and
But to really remove
the source of the pain,
mind has to break the circle
and stop the ‘creative’ storytelling
Mind doesn’t know it is the source
even when Silence tells it this truth.
Mind conceptualizes what it learns,
but how on earth is it going to stop
its own endless chatting and whining?
How is it going to annihilate itself?
Where would it find the courage?
Mind does not have an OFF button to itself.
But awe, beauty and even sleep,
all bring the power
A small step into Silence,
A great step into breaking the circle
that was once started …
… by a long ago forgotten emotion.
