from the lost writings of wu hsin








There is no owner;
No one to claim:
My body or
My thoughts.
There is no owner of consciousness.
Consciousness owns everything.

  1. yes. there is something very comforting about this, somehow...

    this image speaks to me of a contracted state, and the words speak to me of an expanded one.

  2. Hormis dans les maladies mentales ou neurodégénératives démentielles, notre cerveau protège notre conscience, jusqu'au dernier degré de celle-ci.
    Elle n'appartient à personne, ni notre vie, ni notre corps.
    Il est bien de le dire dans un silence fœtal.
    Superbe photo.
    Je t'embrasse, chère Erin.

  4. The body is nothing without consciousness.

    Consciousness ... is ... Life ... ?

    Life in nonhuman nature is owned by consciousness. I like thinking of this, being part of this. Being owned by this.

    Being free of me and mine, theirs, yours.

    Thank you.

    The image and words teach me.

  8. Consciousness equals being alive. Had this conversation re final directives; "if I am not conscious, pull the plug."

  9. Owns everything -- but only in the act of giving everything away.

    Which of course is done unconsciously...
