Contradiction #8

Other people are not a source of peace or happiness;

but something deeper –

an experience of ourselves.

Yet, without other people,

we may not experience peace or happiness.

Contradiction #10

Our abundance

is

our poverty

~ Kelly Hartland

Born encumbered

There is no such thing

as a free mind.

Contradiction #12

The question

can be of more consequence

than the answer.

Wisdom in naivety

Wisdom is an island,

with lakes of knowledge

and rivers of experience.

But

even wisdom must regard

the ocean of naïvety

that relentlessly transpires upon it.

Other people are not a source of peace or happiness;

Perspectively Infinite

– I hold my opinion loosely –

loosely in my hands and wait –

wait and watch for the truth –

the truth to filter through my fingers and fall –

fall to the ground,

where it can be kicked up and stirred –

stirred to settle; to settle into a foundation –

foundation worthy to be built upon.

But

just as I begin to dream –

to dream of a grand building,

I see a crack –

crack in the foundation.

I fall to my knees –

not in despair, but hope!

I look into the crack;

it takes time for my eyes to adjust to the new perspective…

and I see.

I see a vastness of particles –

particles of truth.

I focus all of who I am on just one particle –

knowing; with my new eyes; knowing – that this particle of truth,

is but a tiny aspect of the whole –

a whole far greater than my own comprehension.

Such is why,

I hold my opinion loosely –
