Like a fish out of water, do YOU feel like no one is here anymore? At least, no ONE that you "used" to know? Feel like "the game" has changed, and NO ONE told you about "it"?...Coincidence?...THERE ARE NONE...When a plane goes missing....when a country is divided... when a "Fairy" Boat sinks....just where should I BE placing my attention?...Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality...Breath little one...and walk again, for the first time...For YOU once swam in carefully guided "currents"...And so goes the walking fish.
The Walking Fish ( out of water )...
Let me introduce myself... I AM YOU. YOU are me, and around and around we go. Where do we stop?......WE DON'T. It used to BE that in hind sight, all was 20/20.....not anymore. It used to BE that "once upon a time" was a great way to start a "story".....again, not anymore. For some, there still IS a certain way to look forward...and with that said, a certain way to look back....to reflect....to summarize all that "was" into all that "IS". By doing so, we all at times thread the needle of time itself....thus connecting the dots....or what we FEEL are "the dots", so that we can justify our very existence, and better yet, make sense of where we are, and just how we got here.
Like that of a skilled poker player. Our heads used to BE down.....faces still.....eyes fixed....or even covered....showing no emotion....with our attention only on the end game...or, the future....as we would like to see it "play" out...the, I AM a better "player" than YOU, with absolutely no regard for what IS transpiring all around us, at all times. Fire in the corner?.....Who cares?....Gun shot in the distance?....Didn't even hear it......Sky perhaps falling?....huh?....how does "that" affect ( effect ) my "end game" ($)?....'cause when it come down the river....does it really matter?
When a plane goes missing....when a country is divided... when a "Fairy" Boat sinks....just where should I BE placing my attention? Should I put energy into "that"....or should I continue on with "my game"? Where my money ( attention ) is. And just like that....the casino of life is built. All around YOU, nothing but temptation....nothing but distraction...nothing but nonsense....nothing but the glamour of what could BE.....not what IS.
And so goes the Walking Fish. Tired of BEing held captive within a pool of predictability. Tired of breathing through polluted waters that offer nothing more than an outcome that IS guaranteed to say the least. Caught in a net.....harpooned.....trapped within the very existence that "WAS" reality. Hand fed from birth..."schooled" between essentially a duality of two lesser evils, or better put....given a choice(?) of "this way" or "that".
Like a fish out of water, do YOU feel like no one is here anymore? At least, no ONE that you "used" to know? Feel like "the game" has changed, and NO ONE told you about "it"? Mu Ha Ha!!! Coincidence?...THERE ARE NONE...for I like God do not play with dice...and with that said, I choose not to play....period. Just like the great "player", Mr. Alan Watts once said:
“We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infinitesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.”
Within this frequency of "water" that used to keep us "pooled"....so goes the walking fish....now seeking to BEcome (YOU)nique.... no longer fooled by what's on the "end" of the hooks.... and now seeing the "net"(s) for what they truly are...mere obstacles to be simply avoided.
WE JUST ARE.
Breath little one...and walk again, for the first time.
ON YOUR VERY OWN.
One small step after another....in ANY direction other than back into the comfortable automatic ocean(s) that from which you've left.
And watch the ground beneath your new shadow BEcome whatever it IS that YOU want "it" to BE.
For there are no more "rules".
And how could there BE?
After all....YOU have left the "school" behind.
For YOU once swam in carefully guided "currents"....
You're walking ashore....
Back into a new reality....
That seems VERY familiar.
And so goes the walking fish.
