O traveler assured of God's mercy! Life is full of adversity sweet, and gains leaving empty. He who is truly assured has no peace, and the doubter is quite at rest. The ear on true silence does not find peace, but continual affliction. Each message conveyed is a step into the mind. The mind, an ocean with no shore. Silence is not a person. Silence is an idea of the mind. The mind is abstracted from reality: pure imagination. Is there a soul separate from the mind? Is there enlightenment separate from the mind? As the universe is continually vibrating and changing in entropy, so too the mind can never stop, so use it for enlightenment! But transcending is the fruit of the mind, the fruit of the soul, and the fruit of the physical body. This is why I sit, and I believe my writing will bring me closer to this.
