    Thanks, Lee. That was quite a ride for the mind. We can only know things, have an experience, within the amorphous wholeness. But nothing can be pinned down in such a big and swirling puddle.

    Beautiful! I was just enjoying this morning how movement and impermanence can’t be appreciated without appreciating the permanent unchanging no-thing, that for a moment seems to shimmer as movement and impermanence.

    And I love you’re expressing “of finiteness” that the word definition is an attempt at. I love thinking about how a cigar is yet even more now not just a cigar, as the attempt at “sometimes a cigar is just a cigar”, means a cigar now can represent even that statement! And yet the polarity that would point out “your idea of putting something more on what I said is not helpful in our conversation” can be a useful defining of what is trying to be expressed.

    I Am = Rest of Life. Inhibit the the giving and receiving flow of that bridge (the equal sign) and each side in/as time dreams that fitfull finiteness. I Am is nothing but the rest of All, and the rest of All is not all while Its I Am does not appreciate Itself as “nothing” but Everything.

    I’m going to go enjoy me some breakfast, all the more fully Now, thank you.

      Hey, Mike! I love your initial insight into changing/unchanging. You are That upon which This appears, which is not other than That into which This disappears.♥f

    Nice, Lee!

    Your post reminded me of two Zen koans:

    1. It’s not one; it’s not two. What is it?

    2. The many return to the one; what does the one return to?
