Today I’m thoughtful

IN ORDER TO ARRIVE AT WHAT YOU DO NOT KNOW

YOU MUST GO BY A WAY WHICH IS THE WAY OF IGNORANCE.

IN ORDER TO POSSESS WHAT YOU DO NOT POSSESS

YOU MUST GO BY THE WAY OF DISPOSSESSION.

IN ORDER TO ARRIVE AT WHAT YOU ARE NOT 

YOU MUST GO THROUGH THE WAY IN WHICH YOU ARE NOT.

AND WHAT YOU DO NOT KNOW IS THE ONLY THING YOU KNOW

AND WHAT YOU OWN IS WHAT YOU DO NOT OWN

AND WHERE YOU ARE IS WHERE YOU ARE NOT.
