Good morning

"Clear your mind must be, if you are to find the villains behind this plot." — Yoda

Good morning.

It's 5.12 am as I start to type this post.

Don't ask me why, but this quote, and a few others of the Wise One, migrated to me as I was waking up. 

How are you?

Still too early to say?

That's fine. This time of the day, even the dog isn't ready to engage. In fact, I think he's taken himself off to the lounge where he's fast asleep 💤 on the sofa. Lucky old boy.

Clearing your mind, eh?

Isn't that what most people are told when they embark upon a spiritual path? If not that little trope, it always involves a process of self-enquiry.

And that's fine, honest, but sooner rather than later you come up against a brick wall.

"Yes, but who is it that does or has all this thinking?"

I'm loathed to give you the answer but, at best, all we can is: 

"Don't know".

I know, it's such an anti-climax. Worse still, how do you live your life, your one and oh-so-precious life, not knowing who or what you are?

Actually, that's a slight misrepresentation of the position. You might, but I can't be sure, opine that you can now operate from Beginner's Mind — wonderful, I say — because if you seriously don't know who you are, you can't (surely!) make a mistake? 

Again, I don't know.
