NO HIGHER TRUTH THAN LIES

No higher certainty than uncertainty
No higher knowing than not knowing
No higher constancy than change
No higher objectivity than subjectivity
No higher truth than lies
No higher insight than the choosing of what is separate from totality
No higher mystery than the awareness which perceives these words

No higher silence than heartbeat
No higher strength than attention
No higher virtue than acceptance
No higher gift than allowing
No higher vulnerability than invulnerability
No higher revealing than play
No higher practice than surrender

No higher love than anger
No higher teacher than tears
No higher confession than helplessness
No higher irony than abandonment
No higher sleep than saudade
No higher awakening than self loving self
No higher reality than love

No higher illusion than success
No higher delusion than failure
No higher lie than unworthiness
No higher sin than refusing the power to imagine
No higher evil than unquestioning obedience
No higher slavery than controlling others
No higher defeat than never discovering how to create

No higher purpose than journey
No higher path than struggle
No higher destination than transformation
No higher confusion than "better"
No higher authority than self
No higher guide than joy
No higher star than hope

No higher wrongness than rightness
No higher perception than resonance
No higher gong than paradox
No higher discomfort than possibility
No higher mastery than openness
No higher tyranny than words
No higher lies than truth
