COMING UP FULL
One thing my psyche has been working on during all these hours of sleep, is the "Never give up" philosophy, versus the concept that enlightenment comes at the END of desire, therefore, quit wanting, quit needing, quit hoping, quit never giving up-ing. Accept. Move on. Let go.
Been listening to Meg Hutchinson again a lot lately, particularly her song, "Come Up Full." Two stanzas stick out:
"So go drag your boat to the water
Just when you swear it off those nets are gonna
Come up full"
Making me think: See? It's when you swear it off. When you "give up," that you catch something in your "net."
And this one:
"At night the fire replaces the sun
Just as one good dream’s replaced by another one"
Could the holding on tightly to one dream, keep it from being replaced by another, perhaps un-dreamed dream?
I don't know, but that's the way I'm leaning.
