‘Seconds Away’…

*

Language is often wiser than both,

it’s vulgar and noble would-be users.

*

The Greek prefix ‘dys’ as in dysfunctional or dystopian,

and the Latin prefix ‘dis’ as in dishonest and dishonourable

both derive from ‘duo’.

*

To be dubious about something, or to doubt, is to be ‘double-minded’

and to be ‘two-faced’ is to be disingenuous.

‘Two-timers’ are universally held to be treacherous.

*

Our language reinforces the claims of the mystics,

that division is bad.

*

What chance then for the divided soul?

  1. I don’t ‘know’ the answer – – I argue with myself all the time – I find myself stuck in dualistic thinking often – but I do so love the ‘quiet reminders’ left along the way – – through many ancient lore – – the Yin/Yang, the ‘need for balance between two sides, else bad things happen” the “Be of this world but not in it” advice – – the reminder quote from the movie, Charlie Wilson’s War – – “We’ll see, said the Zen Master…..”
