Why the New Mind?

My interests are so interesting to me. I think they must be significant. Sometimes they’re helpful. Sometimes I see some light. Sometimes it comes through. There are stars in the night sky. The light comes through them, the light from beyond.  From behind. From underneath and inside. The light from above and the light from within.

Every day, in little ways, in the everyday. Every moment – it’s new. It’s timeless.

New Mind is a song by Swans from their album Children of God. It’s a good song – it’s a good title. I could stretch it and say it’s about enlightenment. And it is! The music of Swans is spiritual in the best sense and has been an enormous influence on me since I was a young man. You should go listen to them!

I’ll wait.

I’ll be here when you get back.
