Lost?

12/14/2014

You misplace your keys. You need them now. Where are they?

You look on your bed, on the kitchen and coffee tables, on the desk, under sheets and papers, in cracks and crevices and every under-space, and all along the floors.

Wherever you look, you do not see the very environment before your eyes; you see only what isn’t, the expectation of keys, everything else merely a surplus of obtrusive thingness.

And this is not qualitatively different from how fixed and isolated self orients the world, seeing nothing but its own narrow self-concern, all else, all others, only an uncanny amalgam of indifference and effrontery.

And this is not qualitatively different –
in the very fullness of seeking –
from immersive totality without limit,
without self.
