can you, do you, live this savage wisdom? by miriam louisa

can you, do you, live this savage wisdom? by miriam louisa

impossible! see

this ultimate knowingness
isn’t a teaching, a path, a doctrine
one can ‘live’ or embody

(although the earnest peddlers
of nonduality apps
would love you to buy the notion)

you can’t “live this savage wisdom”

it’s what’s living you

and not just when you’re clear and angelic
oh no
it’s living you when you’re a mess:

lost,

confused,

angry,

seducing and story-telling

its play is infinite

it has no preferences;

it loves all that it creates and beholds

and because You and It are inseparable

your recognition of this

is ITs total fulfillment

it’s how IT gets its jollies!

"It's how it gets its jollies!"

(c’mon, wake up, don’t be a party-pooper!)
