"… I’ve had the experience where the more I don’t know the more open and creative I am. The more I’m not sure how it should go, or how
it should go, or how it should look, the more possibilities there are….”
— Lao Tzu, “Tao Te Ching”; Stephen Mitchell translation; 1991, p.27
In the universe, there are things that are known, and things that are unknown, and in between, there are doors."
Talking Heads album and concert title.
( the album is a long-term favorite of mine and the title has always intrigued and bemused me. Now I am thinking that the message may be to not to look for answers to questions regarding the mystery of Life because there are none - even science in seeking answers only raises more questions. Instead enjoy , wonder at and be grateful for Life.
Paradoxically to look for meaning in the title may be to miss the point!)
Some keep the Sabbath going to Church –
I keep it, staying at Home –
With a Bobolink for a Chorister –
And an Orchard, for a Dome –
Some keep the Sabbath in Surplice –
I, just wear my Wings –
And instead of tolling the Bell, for Church,
Our little Sexton – sings.
God preaches, a noted Clergyman –
And the sermon is never long,
So instead of getting to Heaven, at last –
I’m going, all along.
I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us -don’t tell!
They’d banish us, you know.
How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!
