"Since everything is but an 'apparition',
Perfect in just being 'What It Is' ~ as it is.
Having nothing to do with 'good' or 'bad',
'acceptance' or 'rejection' –
You might as well just burst out laughing!"
~ Tibetan Dzogchen master Longchenpa, 1308-1369 AD
I don't know quite when it happened. Or how. Or why. But my life has taken on an absurd hue. It's as though everything has been painted with the brush of, "Really? Wow." Not good. Not bad. Not meaningful. Not meaningless. Just strangely absurd and infinitely entertaining.
I find myself watching from the corners of my life, completely intrigued by the story that unfolds. Sometimes I laugh. Sometimes I cry. Sometimes I know why. Sometimes I don't. Most times I don't. It's rare that you're laughing or crying for the reasons you think you're laughing or crying. So you just let it flow, let it slide through you without the need for judgment or explanation; you just sit back and wonder at it all.
We're all just bits of dust colliding in a vast universe, attempting to experience reality, whatever that is. It's really quite hilarious.
