is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal name.”~Lao Tsu


These shoes, so worn and worn out,

I wear them like a good idea.

They carry me. I carry them.

We never go anywhere.

We never travel anywhere that is not here.

We are always here.

But I think, like in a dream,

That we have crossed deserts,

Climbed mountains,

Avoided pain,

Run to love,

Jumped for joy,

Danced in the rain.

I smile because I know that we have

Never gone anywhere.

Anna=Insight=Clarity, Simplicity. Not the answer but a means to Self- discovery--there is no where to go, no effort to be exerted only waking up to that which you are already and always. We are never lost only distracted by the luscious physicality of our experience here.
