lopsided



dead leaves on
one side of the plant
all fell off

Hmm,which one side of truth was this!?:)

what a good question! does truth have sides? what can I know is real? I look at this as the dead leaves are the un-truths falling away. maybe it then takes some time for balance to return. or maybe there is no such thing as balance. maybe it's just a concept:-)

I like the idea: 'the un-truths falling away'. Absolute truth is, how else to say it, 'naked'; and yet, in the eyes of the beholder, gardbed in relative truths. Huh, I must have read this somewhere!?:) But could be true nontheless!:)

have you noticed that when you don't hold on, most things fall away? very little stays around without effort.

This tendency to hold on to things: I will never forget how one if the men to whom I owe much of what I know was described by his fellow students (of shamanism) as being so possessive as to say good bye even to his excrement before flushing it down… Can much more easily relate to that!:))
