The Road (Wayfarer themed)

Post by munsi » Fri Apr 12, 2013 6:14 am

Nothing exists but the road beneath my feet.

I thought I was in a town yesterday, thought I met people and that they were kind to me. I thought I spent the night, drank their wine and brought news from all parts of the countryside.

But there’s no town that I can see, all I have is the memory.

And memory’s a fickle thing, a thing of light and shadow, quick to deceive. Only a fool would trust it.

Not like the road.

The road is real, beneath me. It has weight.

The rest is nothing more than a dream.

You didn't eat anybody?

Isn't the notion that only something connected to your immediate senses is real a kind of Solipsism-by-Proxy?

Isn't Solipsism also very Zen?
