to which human beings commonly fall prey
is the idea that because we have choices,
we are free.
as the great teacher Krishnamurti said,
"truth is a pathless land."
choices are not the same as discoveries,
for discoveries come from stillness and silence,
not from an exertion of the will.
so long as we choose,
we're still trapped behind the veil of illusion.
past it's time.
casting it's shadow proudly.
i am still here.
for more wonderful shadows.
