11 july 2016 a windy cloudy
...uneasy... after loss of direction for several days... so try to pay
attention and take a walk on the heath extension
i suppose this scene is still as if in the eighteenth century... except
for sounds of cars and trains and aircraft... and the sight and sound of
someone crossing a field while talking to a hand-held object... and the
presence of a similar handheld object on which i'm writing this 'to
everyone'... or 'in public'...
surprised that i was forgetting to include what i'm doing... and thus
living in the self-excluding past!... and regretting that for several
days i'd forgotten that lost wholeness one can so easily regain...
simply by including self/other as unity...
...remembering that i'm sitting here on a public seat in a public
landscape as well as remembering self/other (etc) i realise that that
mild misery has gone... as i watch a housefly walk across these words
that are describing it... as well as realising these thoughts
at which i receive the message 'low battery' and stop writing
a day later:
unease returns so try again to attend to self/other... which i take to
include things as well as people... which i presume puts us in touch
with the indescribable whole of reality (so called)... which is almost
silent at this moment except for slight sounds of someone moving in the
flat above... so that we can live separated by walls and floors and
ceilings in 'blocks of flats'... or in 'garden suburbs'... or other means
of living apart as well as together... and to the exclusion of some...
