FREEDOM

It was never a question of
be right or not be right,
but only of freedom,
because ultimately also be right
is equally unfree,
as not be right.
The virtuosity is,
neither to grab
the one nor the other.
It is always the grabbing
of this or that,
which further entraps us,
even if it,
at the first glance,
may happen
to our benefit.
In every moment
is the dharma gate
wide open:
As our very own self.

Children of the Night

We may be sometimes
like undeads,
children of the night,
feeling dead or blessed,
scared or wondering us
not to see ourselves
in many mirrors,
wandering around, restless,
in search
for the magic potion,
the red, sweet,
which may give back
to us the life
and snatching us
from the curse
of the separation
of the day from night.

Mabe we must sink
the teeth in our
own misery,
and restore friendship
whit those coffins,
from which,
after aeons of escape,
we may arise only then,
for crumble to dust
in the light of the sun.

Odem

ODEM (Barbara-Paraprem)

When God was, so I was.
Form is emptiness, emptiness is form.
How should also
have been, be now or ever be
there something else.
Even God does not have to die:
Why the wheel of separation
of the light from the darkness
turning again?
Why be nothing,
if I can be everything?
Inhaling… Exhaling…
Has the breath a beginning, an end?
Who can say,
where he comes from or where he goes?
I am the breath of life,
wherever I look: there I am.

Butterflies – Schmetterlinge

Like butterflies
they may be sometimes,
Those who not shine,
from the shadow of a hand
scared up.

Maybe therefore comes
God like a child to us.
Little, and without weapons.
Defenseless, pleading,
only our heart searching.

Antidote

smilie tod smilie tänzerinnen

“I’d never voluntarily watch or hear a Schlager music show.
But if you have just seen more or less “involuntary” a shitty movie,
in which you has somehow noticed too late,
that it is not a thriller, but horror movie, then yet.
But you must be careful that you do not overdose.
Usually a few minutes, at most, are completely enough.
Otherwise you have to watch a horror movie again,
as an antidote to the Schlager music. “

Breathing – Atmen

BREATHING (Barbara-Paraprem)

BREATHING

 

Is it not enough
just to breathe?
Is there
a greater miracle?

Let be taken
from the breath by the hand.
Let oneself be breathed.
Like a open vessel.

Where we meet,
if not there,
where we surrender
the control over our ribs.

Free, unlimited
space,
the chest so broad
as the universe.
