Sitting here, I come up against something,
Perhaps it is a desire to change my state,
or for things to be different.

I try to bring the question, “Who am I?”
It remains unanswerable.

Having grown tired of living in the basement,
I take the mask off.

I wish to see and to be seen.
Until there is no longer a struggle for, nor against,
just a yielding to that which is.

Very buddhistic. Be.

Also very 12 step.

No matter, it’s very good. Peace…

sometimes, when i am teaching, i can watch steven “working”.
it’s informative.
when he can’t be seen as clearly, i know that less of the artifice of “his mask” is present and that whatever is necessary in that moment can enter the room. those tend to be the most powerful and transformative moments.
when “the mask” is off.
when role becomes secondary to presence.

thanks for your post luke!
