The Ravenous Animal
The thinking mind, with all of its noise, grows more ravenous, the more it is fed. This is not entirely bad; on occasion one has need for an administrative assistant, or even a guard dog. But don’t let it fool you into its illusion, for as clever as it may be at computation, it is even more clever at convincing you of the despair of the past, or the fear of the future. Both are illusion, and with rapt attention to his convincing antics, this trickster is devouring your Present…the only thing real.
