Everything is practice.
Everything is desire.
My practice is the same as my existence.
My existence is the same as my desire to practice.
I move in parallel lines yet sometimes desire means to cross them;
To communicate with forces that propel me toward more practice.
A trail remains as energy--
always patterned lapses of time,
sometimes documented in spaces like this one.
If I wished to stop practicing,
if my desire ever ceased to exist,
I believe I would too.
So, as a pulse pushes forward,
Everything as practice.
Everything as desire.
thank you for being here :)
