Lying on the exam table

Lying on the exam table
as the IV medication
drips ...
drips...
drips ...
I know how I got here
but where am I going?

What's wrong, Pierre?

Mike Cross said...

Nothing's wrong, Michael. Pierre is thinking of a field beyond right and wrong where we have promised, one day, to meet. You would be most welcome to join us there... when we each stop hanging on for dear life.

Michael said...

Yes, the words of dear Rumi ...

Yes, I would like to meet in that field.

We tend to assume it must be out there somewhere, like a distant shrine at the end of a rainbow.

But maybe it has been right behind us all the time.

Maybe that is why Master Dogen wrote of learning the backward step of turning light around.

I make it sound as if I were one who knew, but truly I don't know.
