The Great Divider

With perfect insight that
Time is only the relegation of
Objective experience to
Past, present, and future; to
Recollection, consciousness, and anticipation,
One lives naturally,
Reacting spontaneously and appropriately
To every calling.
What is the mind
But a succession of thoughts,
Like beads on a string?
Deep understanding of
The workings of the mind is
The cutting of the string.
To understand that the mind is
The great divider,
Dividing function, seeing, into
Seer and seen, is
A great leap forward.

(from In the Shadow of the Formless)
