The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #116 - Open the Seven Gates of Transcendental Consciousness

09.21.11

One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives
for movement and action, their relations, their work and leisure activities,
and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the
encounters they find there.

It's a bike ride.

Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.

It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm
at California Donuts #21.
We ride at 9pm.
We'll endeavor to return before the last red line trains (around midnight).

On this bike ride, you might expect:
- full moon picnics
- inconvenient passageways
- "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- amateurish enthusiasm
- disorientation
- reorientation
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- karaoke
- geocaching
- oblique strategies
- Oulipian constraints
- traffic median tea parties
- rivers that no longer exist
- smell tourism
- Couchwick v2.0

Furthermore:
- usually 20-30 miles
- usually some hills
- a medium pace (probably not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- few stops, short stops
- but we're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light
- victory donuts!

This week:

Open the Seven Gates of Transcendental Consciousness


Lost minds wail the night
while hiding in the shadows
with all eyes held tight.

Energy feeding back to its central cord
causes a whirlpool of time to soar.
The timeless universe, that is no more,
is made to inhale
as the serpent swallows its own tail.

From the blue fire pool of frozen time
rises the new fire light of burning mind.

Now, new born flashes of mind,
swimming in the black void of time,
seek the very point of being.
To find that which from all else if fleeing.

Come feel life's vibration
and sing with us the holy sound.

Turning I about,
in the deep seat of consciousness,
I realise the illusion of out.

A thousand clear flames of light
blaze in glory
upon the conquered height.

OM

(A little over 20 miles; some climbing, yes.)
