Far From The Village



Far from the Village,
Road vanished into path,
Path vanished into hillside,
Hillside vanished into Vastness,
The Known vanished into Wonder.

There I choose to dwell.
A choice in which I have no say,
For both Heart and Mind carry me there.

The "Village" is the known, all of the well-defined paths and descriptions of reality. At some point one "Kicks away the Great Teachings" and wanders, Lost and Blissful in the Absolute Unknowability of the Great Mystery to which all paths refer.
