It seems that, sometimes, beings have the capacity via empathy to tap into something. To be reminded of their place in the universe, their partaking, their insignificance and momentarily transcend abstractions. They become aware of what trully matters instead of the usual illusory leanings that often lead them towards meaningless avenues and empty dreams of conquests and dominion. David Myatt has had many such moments throughout his lifelong quest which swayed between abstractions and becoming free of them through terrible ordeals. I am often reminded of his words in times of hardships and this piece especially -in my humble opinion- encompasses what happens when the pressure of opposites cease to exist. Then, there is only this personnal finding that silence, compassion and love are what lies ahead along with the death of the ‘ego’. We are reminded that we are temporal and ephemereal beings that can, for a very brief moment, experience stillness in a causal form with the capacity to share the love, the sufferings of others only later to return to the primal energies of the cosmos.

“The one of understanding, feeling the timeless nature of Existence, Does not exhort, nor preach, nor hold fast to any dogma: They are Silent, Pointing to the clouds in the sky. For each must find their own goal, in their own time: They who understand only guide those who earnestly seek, Those whose time for understanding has arrived. The tranquillity of life is in understanding of self, For thereby comes acceptance of the illusion of Existence: And they who are tranquillity become thus all life, Realizing the folly of action breeding violence. Yet they who are all life are Being, become – Waiting with tranquillity for the coming of death. With discarding of self comes the realization of eternity bringing sadness And with the realization of eternity comes the tranquillity of compassion. For they who are compassion merge with all existence And live thus in the wisdom of sorrow bringing tears. Yet they who cry know also the laughter of the moment: Blown away by the wind like the clouds in the sky. Thus does the seeker of the goal that is no goal Realize the unwisdom of words: Understanding wind in clouds in the sky. Those who transcend self by their many errors of experience – Understanding thus the serenity of silence – Need no outward chattel For they are richer than all the riches of Earth. Thus do they who quest after transcendence become still, A falling leaf turned Autumn brown Following the wind of the moment: Neither clinging to, nor striving against, The force of existence ever a dream in the end. They who are still Seek not the folly of the wisdom of worship, Nor the secrecy of shrines: For their temple is a swaying branch in a glade of trees Resting on a high hill beneath the wind-blown clouds in the sky; And their prayer is Silence.”  -David Myatt
