Everything Else 2



Pre-enlightenment desire:
what is the truth, when even the false is true?
Post-enlightenment regret:
what is a lie, when even the truth is false?
There are more illusions in the light:
we choose the illusion of choice.
There are more delusions in the dark:
we chase the delusion of irrelevance.
When we have nothing, we have enough.
When we are nothing, we are enough.
But we want to see, and the more we see,
the more we want there to be.
Everything else in the universe is not us.
We resist its being thus.
