Growth Pushes Up From Below 2013

Growth Pushes Upwards From Below


Sitting on the toilet seat

I watch my polished toenail,

A white bit sticking out,

Showing, growing from below.

Ah, think I, “It’s all like that”.


Jumping to the end, I see

It’s all about re-forming mind,

An under-mind.

From thereon upwards

With its threads,

Synapses taking self’s life outwards

Into right instinctive choices –

Bright, light, great instinctive choices,

So restrained,

You could not even call them hunches –

More, direct & un-reflected bunches.

How agreeable this thought instinct is.

How enjoyable its business,

Growing, as it were, from nowhere

To where nature turns to actor.

Little Steps 2012

Little Steps


Little steps taken alone:

Small moves in isolation;

Growth, progress, all in

Small steps – no hops; the way to concentration,

Higher being, deeper seeing

And the soundest system

To self-wisdom.


With little more to say, small obstacles still in the way,

Not much elucidates the matter better.

Later what’s in store

Is written in the letter

Of the law

of karma:

Chance and luck and ambience,

All in the chain of cause/effect;

Destiny determined, radiated

By decision, persons and location.


Little is by small degrees – but gets there.

Little has a small effect – but gets there.

Little sounds like trivial.

It isn’t.

Little has a goal

and gets where

We’re all headed for sooner

Or later.

A Song To Make Us Empty 2004

A Song To Make Us Empty

Do what you do,
Sing what you sing,
But get rid of the ego.
