who is asking?


who is sitting?
who is painting?
who is writing?
who is breathing?

the answer will depend on who is asking

self asking will create a response
from its handy archive of memories
I asking (non-personal ‘I’) will simply recognize I

who or what this-here-now is,
is created in the brain of the perceiver

I am not,
but Life lives I
and knows I(t)-self through the Awareness of all ‘I’s

echoes from emptiness

being all-that-is



there’s a palm frond fluttering
there’s a whistler mindlessly twittering
there’s a bird whistling too, purposefully
there’s a person laughing
there’s a radio quacking
there’s autumn sunshine
there’s toothache and tiredness

there’s a brain in which all this is occurring …

a brain that is simply being-all-that-is
