Sometimes your crossroads
seem to be the spokes of a
very intricate circle.
When the possibilities seem cripplingly endless,
the end seems hauntingly close
and the beginning too far to begin with;
what could just be the
complexity of paths emanating from a single point
could turn abruptly
into a bounded,
almost absolute occlusion
that looks like a spider's web
from the center -
which is where you are standing,
held in place
by the many strings that tug at you
each equally and in opposite directions
such that Newton's reality
becomes your nemesis.
It's difficult to see beyond
the lines that extend right under
from your navel,
from your feet,
yet more from your forehead,
and yet what you cannot see
is that while you're confined
to the 3d reality version of yourself,
a simpler being
perceives you being surrounded
by warmly-hugging lines
just as a
that inspires it to then discover geometry
and start perceiving 3D
and then become entrenched
in this intricate wheel of a web.
While that happens,
you still have a lot of time
to move into each of those lines
and reach the circumference of this circle
and the radius of another.
Take a deep breath.
It's all geometry,
extremely difficult to compute,
But don't get sucked into computing it,
for then you'd forever be the simple
being that computes in 2D
and maintains the veil,
for each of the lines
is just an extension of you
if you can feel along them enough,
you'd know which epicenter to pursue,
which path to follow,
which new circle to start.
Take a deep breath
and see the divine geometry that you hold
within the palms of your hands now,
all the lines exist only
in those already etched in your hands
and you'll start to unravel the pattern
of the secret lapis lazuli
that tantalizes with the alchemy
that it was birthed with
and maybe then you'd know that
no matter which path you choose
no matter what line you follow
and which new circle you create,
you would be revolving around the same center
you've tried so hard to
or maybe just keep unobtrusively
to the side.
But a center can never take sides.
Now you know:
you stay or you move,
and no matter how you move,
the wheel will turn
the epicenter is within you.

Geometry is the journey. The journey is the destination. The destination is the departure. The departure creates Geometry. All revolve around the epicenter.
