Are all that there is to remember that time…
There in the hand the essence all seek
Deep in my Soul I sense the sweet scent
My heart gives a bump, my eyes full of tears.
But the past is not there for any to see.
We are drawn to the future both thee and me;
New Trust, new Hope and new Love arise always.
Dear Heart, dear Heart we must Dare and be strong.
The bud is formed now and will open in spring
There sweetness sublime! It will not take long
Dare to love
New to love
My true love
Own true love.
Dare to host
New to host
My true host
Own true host.
Dare to peace
New to peace
My true piece
Own true peace.
Why? Is a question children ask.
Perhaps the most frequently asked of all.
Why the ….. Is a common enough expletive.
Hardly worth bothering about.
Why the now? Hardly makes sense at all.
But think ……. No now, no me!
(Tho’ some say there is no ‘me’)
For the running now is the living me.
Hanging in there together are the entities that make the living me.
So the me is a composite in the now of them.
And the thing I fear the most?
That these dancers stop their rhythm
Leave the me alone so there is no now.
But wait, fear not!
There is an eternity of nows in Spirit.
For all lives on in its own way we do not understand.
/>This being, that becomes.
(The island has surf around it)
From the arising of this that arises,
( When the island forms, the surf begins)
Beautiful Bassin with the Pass so mild,
Returning boats all the danger suffer,
Awaits each laden boat woman and child
Been away for many a day plying their trade,
Now returning, each asks. Is the Pass wild?
For many have drowned in its strong embrace.
Always a changing from day to day,
The sands are pushed by the currents so strong.,
Now sand, now water, now air no say!
Birds there are living, fishes too,
For the living world does not stray
From danger and change! Heartbeats strong.
In the Bassin’s waters Nature greets
And welcomes those who care. Hermits
Lived in ancient time where land sea meets.
Still there the spot where Vierge once lay.
Father THomas the statue welcomed at his feet.
The Mother of the Lord became a Shrine.
A Shrine still there and revered still
But it’s the Bassin itself thats a shrine.
Part of the bejewelled Cote d’Argent will
You continue to be? Yes ‘course everchanging
In some form it will. Do not take your fill!
It can stay if mankind abstemious ways acquires.
Await the return
From the cessation of this, that ceases.
(When the island sinks, the surf stops)
This not being, that does not become.
(No island, no surf)
When an experiment is carried out, there is:
A ‘the stuff of the experiment’,
B the machinery to do the experiment for example a microscope or the CERN accelerator.
C at least one human observer..ultimately, the seers.
and (do not forget) D the rest of the Universe/Multiverse..
If it is an experiment on Quantum Physics :
A is to be ‘understood’ at a quantum level, if the experiment works! (By the way what does understanding mean? Does understanding mean being able to report the presence of a series of smudges on a photographic plate, or the figures on a dial like a parrot? Or does it mean to have a hunch that these results represent the possibility of there being say, a Higgs Boson? If so, implied is a deep and intuitive understanding of the field and how the results of a particular experiment might relate to it).
B, may or may not be interpreted at a quantum level depending on the choice of the ‘see’rs. and how it is set up
C The C seers in an experiment on quantum physics are themselves excluded from the quantum world they are examining. However they cannot be entirely excluded. This is not so if the experiment is on the understanding of quantum consciousness!!
D The rest of the Universe/Multiverse? Just as usual it is ‘becoming’ all the time everywhere!. It is made up of some very large objects like galaxies and small things like protons and electrons and some even smaller things like quarks. Surely the correct ‘interpretation’ must be that everything is both interpretable at a quantum scale by the rules of eg Einstein and Bohr (our sense experience has no direct sensitivity to detect this world) and also interpretable on a direcly seeable and feelable level deriving from our own sensual experience using the rules described by classical physics eg Newton.
