It’s a materialistic world we live in and the prevailing
philosophy is to expand out into greater levels of
physicality and that is the measure of success:
bigger house, cars, more furniture, hydroplanes,
headphones and electric minivans, etc.
but I’m thinking of going the other way I’m thinking
going small is the way I’m thinking of giving everything
away like the wide screen TV and the boxes of clothes that can
clothe a village in India and all this paper work.
I’m going the opposite way I’m going to shrink everything
down to a point where I can carry it all on my key chain
and then I will make that vanish as well.
it won’t be gone it will just be so small as to be
in the end, that is all you’re gonna have anyway
when even your material shell gets tossed
on the trash heap and you are nothing but
a point of consciousness.
