Life may move the action figure through apparent discernment

My first limerick:
I wanted to shine
and have a good time
but things were unstable
and I was not able
to find the last rhyme
08:24:00 From George ♡ MentalConfetti.com:
“I never thought I’d die alone; I laughed the loudest, who would have known. I trace the cord back to the wall, no wonder it was never plugged in at all.”
08:28:10 From Ethan Ellappa:
Try this – Give your mind a name

This appearing as that
all of Maya is an imagining of sorts
that too is a part of maya, Daivid
no “but” really, it is all maya
different dimensions are also maya
Coffee, however is REAL! Brb
08:38:59 From Ethan Ellappa:
the all is mind; the universe is mental
08:41:33 From David (Maine):
Conjecture: consciousness was alone so long it went insane and created a universe.
Flaw is that this views consciousness as a person.
08:42:26 From Lisa Vallon:
the 10th man story
08:44:09 From Ethan Ellappa:
“The tenth man counts the other nine, each of whom is visible to him, but forgets himself, though his Self is ever known to him”.
Swami Sarvapriyananda expands on the allegory of “the Tenth Man” as taught in Chapter 7 of the book, Pancadasi by Vidyaranya.
This chapter is inspired from a verse from the Brihadharanyaka Upanishad (Mantra 4.4.12):
“If a man knows the Self as ‘I am this,’ then desiring what and for whose sake will he suffer in the wake of the body?”
08:50:47 From Lisa Vallon:
Here is a wonder story about an old, empty barn:
08:51:24 From Lisa Vallon:
there was nothing in it
08:54:41 From Holger@Myst-ry.com (me/myself/i):
“Beam me up Scotty, there is no intelligence on this planet.”
08:54:53 From Lisa Vallon:
live long and prosper
08:54:57 From playing Manfred:
Thank you Ethan
08:55:26 From Lisa Vallon:
“She’s Breakin up, Captain! I can’t hold her much longer!”
08:55:51 From David (Maine):
Damn it, I’m a doctor, not a philosopher!
I really like George’s poem. It’s the koan for the week.
My comment on the koan: Many times I have tried to trace the cord back to the Self. But I hit a wall. I thought I was plugged into the body/mind. But it was just emptiness. I was unplugged. You won’t die alone; you are everyone.
