      There is no ball of wax. Argue, pout, deny it to your grave, I'm
      telling you the 'ball of wax' you refer to is in your imagination




      Terry Murphy sent this;

      both hafiz/ladinsky
      (wondering why philosophers so seldom laugh)

      *All the Hemispheres*

      Leave the familiar for a while
      Let your senses and bodies stretch out

      Like a welcomed season
      Onto the meadows and shores and hills.

      Open up to the Roof.
      Make a new water-mark on your excitement
      And love.

      Like a blooming night flower,
      Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness
      And giving
      Upon our intimate assembly.

      Change rooms in your mind for a day.

      All the hemispheres in existence
      Lie beside an equator
      In your heart.

      Greet Yourself
      In your thousand other forms
      As you mount the hidden tide and travel
      Back home.

      All the hemispheres in heaven
      Are sitting around a fire

      While stitching themselves together
      Into the Great Circle inside of

      *The Vegetables*

      The vegetables would like to be cut

      By someone who is singing God's Name.

      How could Hafiz know
      Such top secret information?

      Once we were all tomatoes,

      Potatoes, onions or



      everything is so brilliant
      when i take off
      my me-colored glasses

      Dear Matthew and J.M. Cox,

      That "which is" is not
      something to be arrived at.

      Hence, it is not an outcome
      of choice of a philosophy,
      nor a matter of reasoning
      to an outcome.

      By making a philosophical
      choice to believe in
      a transcendent reality,
      one has chosen to find
      what one wants to be the case,
      or the case that appeals
      to one's reason, or both.

      To confirm the self and its
      choice and its reasoning
      about "what its reality is",
      is to continue the "loop"
      which is mistaken
      as reality. The "loop"
      is like whirling a light
      to make the appearance
      of a circle. In this
      case, the circle is the
      pursuit of the kind of
      becoming we consider
      "sane", in our best
      interest, or the most logical.

      The reality of the situation, "what is",
      isn't infinite because infinity is
      pleasing to the intellect,
      improves the self,
      makes me more than I was,
      acknowledges and transcends duality,
      establishes nonduality,
      or gains a special state of awareness.

      It is because it is, because
      there is no other way
      it is or will be.



      You can read a comparison of the

      "no effort, no choice" approach taught by:

      Papaji (Poonjaji) and his ambassadors

      and J. Krishnamurti including the

      "everything is a functioning of the totality"

      fatalism taught by Ramesh and Wayne

      verses the intense continuous effort approach

      taught by:

      Sri Ramana Maharshi and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
