though
'time'
IS
an 'illusion,'

"if"

I were you
I would
'use'
it ...

"wisely ..."

"for,"
(even)
'illusions'
'have'
their
'seasons' ---
you know,

"and,"
like 'seasons,'
they
'come'
"and"
they

'go.'

the
problem,
"of course,"
with the
'time-illusion'

IS
THAT
'when'
it
'goes,'

so,
'in a sense,'
do you.

SO ...
are you
'intending' your best,
'today'?
'thinking' your best,
'today'?
'feeling' your best,
'today'?
'speaking' your best,
'today'?
'doing' your best,
'today'?


"or,"
are you

"going to"

'do'
all this

"a bit later" --
when
you
'have'
'time'?

speaking of
'travel,'
have you ever been

"to"

If-Only-Land?

It's
a rather
sad
little
Land,

"full" ...
... of people
who
"wish"

they
had
'done'

"otherwise,"

speaking to one
another,
prefacing all they say

"with"

'if-only,'
if-only
if-only.

know
what
I
'mean'?
you do,
"if"
you've been
'there.'

these are the
people who
Forgot
'time'
is
an 'illusion,'

"but" ...

a most-precious

"and"
Divine
ONE.

a wise man,
sometimes
"referred to as"

"W.Q.J.,"
once wrote:
"the wise
put
their good intentions
into practice,
without
delay."

others have said:

"because,"

the Wise
Know ...

'time'
IS
the most precious
'illusion'

"and"
also
Know ...

the
'seeds' of
Enlightenment
can be
planted
cultivated
nourished
harvested

"only"

while

"in a body."

thus did
Shankaracharya
Teach:
'great is the gift,
priceless is the boon

"of"
birth ---
into
human form,'

"but,"
that
'birth'

IS
'under'

"and"

'on'

A GIVEN 'CURVE' ...

"which,"
I
have
been
taught,

"while"
'pre-established,'

"almost
no one
comes close
"to"
'maximizing,'"

"because" ...

'there's always tomorrow' ...

"to which"

I
reply:

"Really,
NOW?"

"if only"
people
would
'find'
some
other
land
to
'visit,'
"other than"

If-Only-Land ...

the world
"and"
its
mostly
discontent
Humanity
would

'be'
so much less
sad

"and,"
perhaps,
its
music
would

"change"
'from'

"... the still sad music of Humanity ..."

'to'
a
new-song,
"The Song Celestial,"
written to
'accompany'
Miranda's
joyful words
"at"

"The Tempest's"
end:

"Oh, brave new world,
that has
such creatures
in it."

"or,"
if you
'like,
'we'
can
'go'
sweet little old Granny's
'route,'

"and"
(just)
'say':

" 'waste'
not,
'want'
not."

"Although I am unborn, with exhaustless
Atma, and am the Lord of all that is, yet,
taking up the domination of my nature I am
born by the power of illusion."

Krishna to Arjuna,
"Bhagavad Gita," Chapter iv,
Verses 5 - 8.
