Tracing paper

enlightenment
is like tracing paper
the thinnest of veils 
away from our everyday experience

it looks
and tastes
and feels
so close to normal

most times you’ll miss it

in a world of shouting
enlightenment is a whisper
not an escape
but a shift towards home

we are not as lost
as we think we are
all we seek
rests inside us
a sliver of reality away

I send an email several times a year with a handful of the most interesting things I’ve written or uncovered at home, abroad, and on the web.
