The Numbers and the Great Liberation

This beauty was in my email in-box this morning, a timely message because the mission, now known to me, is to align and connect with the Earth’s outcome as part of the cosmos. I am told that this mission transcends Buddhism. The dharma now is not to encode anything reductively as Dharma. The dharma is in the silence, potent, holding you, waiting yet not waiting.

The Numbers, by Radiohead

It holds us like a phantom
It touches like a breeze
It shines its understanding
See the moon is smiling

Open on all channels
Ready to receive

‘Cause we’re not at the mercy
Of your chimeras and spells
Your chimeras and spells

We are of the Earth
To her we do return
The future is inside us
It’s not somewhere else
It’s not somewhere else
It’s not somewhere else

(One day at a time)

One day at a time
We call upon the people
The people have this power
The numbers don’t decide
The system is a lie
A river running dry
The wings of butterflies

And you may pour us away like soup
Like we’re pretty broken flowers
We’ll take back what is ours
Take back what is ours

One day at a time
