location: Twin Lakes, Desolation Wilderness.
Perseid showers overhead. It’s 3 am and I’m slightly wh’skeyed. I think that Krishnamurti’s August 10th mediation says it best:
There is only one fact
Everything about us, within as well as without-
our relationships, our thoughts, our feelings-
in a constant state of flux.
Being aware of this, the mind craves permanency,
a perpetual state of peace, of love, of goodness,
a security that neither time nor events can destroy;
therefore it creates the soul, the Atman,
and the visions of a permanent paradise.
But this permanency is born of impermanency,
and so it has within it the seeds of the impermanent.
– The Book of Life by J. Krishnamurti
