maya






Maya:

A term of Vedanta philosophy denoting ignorance obscuring the vision of Reality; the cosmic illusion on account of which the One appears as the many, the Absolute as the relative.

re-birth





Phoenix

are you willing to sponged out, erased, cancelled.
made nothing?

are you willing to be made nothing
dipped into oblivion?

if not you will never really change

the phoenix renews her youth
only when she is burnt, burnt alive, burnt down
to hot and flocculent ash

then the small stirring of a new small bub in the nest
with strands like floating ash

shows that she is renewing her youth like the eagle.
Immortal bird.

the underneath



below what we think we are
we are something else,
we are almost anything

....

pivotal core of the soul, heavier than iron
so ponderously central;
heavier and hotter than anything known:

and also alone
and yet
reeling with connection
spinning with the heaviness of balance
and flowing invisibly, gasping
towards the breathing stars and the central of all sunniness


....


out of the soul's middle to the middle-most sun, way-off or in every atom...

one last ride



floating onward
pictures ever change
take me one more time
take me one more way
take me for one last ride....

suspension of disbelief



"Suspension of disbelief or "willing suspension of disbelief" is a formula named as such in English by the poet and aesthetic philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge to justify the use of fantastic or non-realistic elements in literature. Coleridge suggested that if a writer could infuse a "human interest and a semblance of truth" into a fantastic tale, the reader would suspend judgment concerning the implausibility of the narrative"

The Aurora Bridge is one of the most jumped-off bridges in the U.S. Half of it runs over land -- creating a particularly horrifying danger for pedestrians.

Reporting from Seattle — The lonely heights of bridges have often been magnets for suicide -- San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, England, the Coronado Bridge in San Diego. The lure of a spectacular plunge to a speedy demise in a womb of water has proven irresistible for generations.... See More

In few of these places, though, are despairing jumpers in danger of becoming deadly missiles, threatening pedestrians below. That dubious honor is reserved for Seattle, where the 78-year-old Aurora Bridge runs 167 feet above the west end of Lake Union -- half of it over land.
