Just as fog is dispelled by the strength of the sun and is dispelled no other way, preconception is cleared by the strength of realization. There's no other way of clearing preconceptions. Experience them as baseless dreams. Experience them as ephemeral bubbles. Experience them as insubstantial rainbows. Experience them as indivisible space.
Look to this day! For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course Lie all the verities and realities of your existence: The bliss of growth; The glory of action; The splendor of achievement;
For yesterday is but a dream, And tomorrow is only a vision; But today, well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, And every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day; Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn! -Kalidasa
Now we will count to twelve and we will all keep still.
For once on the face of the earth let's not speak in any language, let's stop for one second, and not move our arms so much.
It would be an exotic moment without rush, without engines, we would all be together in a sudden strangeness.
Fishermen in the cold sea would not harm whales and the man gathering salt would look at his hurt hands.
Those who prepare green wars, wars with gas, wars with fire, victory with no survivors, would put on clean clothes and walk about with their brothers in the shade, doing nothing.
What I want should not be confused with total inactivity. Life is what it is about; I want no truck with death.
If we were not so single-minded about keeping our lives moving, and for once could do nothing, perhaps a huge silence might interrupt this sadness of never understanding ourselves and of threatening ourselves with death. Perhaps the earth can teach us as when everything seems dead and later proves to be alive.
Now I'll count up to twelve and you keep quiet and I will go.
Pablo Neruda (1904-1973), "Keeping Quiet" Extravagaria (translated by Alastair Reid) Jonathan Cape, London, 1972, pp.27-29 (original Estravagario, Editorial Losada, Buenos Aires, 1958)"
Things I've learned at hippie camp: - you can train your hair off shampoo - everything you love will eventually rip and smell like mildew, but it is all still lovable - people can sit in a room and stargaze while it's raining - things are better when you act crazy ...- never eat a pickled hotdog of unknown origin that's been sitting in the hole in the ceiling upholstery of a hot van - sometimes the people in charge have absolutely no idea what's going on - 40 sixteen-year-olds can fit in a 15'x15' room
