Giving Up the Project “You”

whenever you get lost in sounds, textures and sights, the deepest impulses of your body more so than jittery ideas and thoughts of your mind and more importantly whenever you engage in playing the game of the truth—win or lose—more so than you engage in the shadow-play of the self:

you have no face left to save
no identity to uphold, no self-consistency to keep
noone to convince and noone to impress
no privacy to protect,
nothing to gain and nothing to prove
nothing to miss out on
and nothing to lose

and that’s when you become alive
