Addictive

Change is the prime
inevitable, a linear
extent of not always
graceful evolutions
cutting into our
plan “A”.
 
We’re never granted
license as disengaged
observers but still,
when faced with 
self-evident truth, we
do find ways to lie
to ourselves—faking
our way through a
casual étude, as if no
one is listening. Eyes 
wide open,
                              not seeing what
                              beckons to be seen.
 
Deep cuts slow
to mend, tormenting
versions of prior
lives we’re still living,
never questioning why 
we’re bound to the
addictive misery inside
our minds, running
away from a clean 
break,
                                we’re simply here,
                                not there.

“It is highly common for individuals to become frustrated while striving to learn about and live a spiritual life. Most of the disappointment is incidental to false or misperceived concepts of spirituality. Entry into the dimensions of spiritual sensations is conditional on the mastery of the moment. Spirituality is not a spectator attraction.”
