The Book of Life
A thought for the day

Pathways for uncertain travellers on the road to Now
Motive   Air
Dark clouds move in to
block the stars,
Tension builds up until
it explodes in an ecstasy
of pulsing light.
In the moment of the lightning
all is suspended in brilliant
clarity and then is gone again.
To hold onto this moment,
to allow it to exist forever,
is the desire of many
- the experience of but a few.
The power of the lightning
can fuse the mind of the
unready and rend the
veil of personal reality
asunder leaving one
to drift in the abyss
of madness.
The point is not so much to hold,
as it is to use it as a guide in the dark.
