hard-wired

all life is attracted by
whatever prolongs that life,
and it is avoiding at all cost,
whatever might lead to death.

nature translates this into
the pursuit of pleasure
and the avoidance of pain

and like this our minds are hard-wired to desire …

we shouldn’t get rid of desire,
nor force it to be silent
neither cast it into rules.
… all the above works
like good intentions
on any New Years Day:
not at all

however,
when mind is silent
everything finds its right place

  1. (smile) OH yes, I understand perfectly. Proof is in the “pudding”. I really admire the way your Mind thinks, Bert. Those of us who are “connected” to Mother, are able to understand the “zone” and non-thinking. Loved this post and your Tulip …. great capture! Love, Amy
