I Don’t Know How To Do This

by sleepwalkwaking

All I know to do is to
think about these concepts.
Yet I get the impression that
thinking will never get me there.

There are all these concepts
about enlightenment
and the intellectual framework
for the process of its “attainment”.

Who cares?

Where is the experience?

The clever voice responds:
you will never know, can never know.
you will only ever be stuck in those thoughts.
you can never get there.

And yet I know that clever voice for what it is,
just an imposter pretending to be wise,
repeating the words and concepts
collected from other sources,
claiming them as my own.
