The sketchbook of American Poet Igor Goldkind

Quote

Accept!


Accept
That there is nothing you can do.
Accept
That you cannot control or know for certain the outcome of events.
Accept
That you are merely one of trillions.
Accept
That your parents are dying or already dead.
Accept
That you are dying and this all means nothing.
Accept
That you are vulnerable, shatterable to the winds of fate.
Accept
That even the mountains die.
Accept
That you are truly alone
Accept
That you will die alone.
Accept
That you will remember none of this.
Accept
What you will not accept.

Mirror, Mirror

The Infinite

 

 

What I see is the reflection of my eyes

 

In every direction that I gaze.

 

Two mirrors face each other

 

Only the dust can tell the difference.

NOTHING TO DO


We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infinitesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future.

We have no present.

Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation.
