This Is Not Self Improvement, This Is Self Erasure

This is not a new thought system
     — this is the infiltration
          of the dark.

This is not another regimen of mind
     — this is the vast non-negotiable
          doing its work.

This is not another way to think
     — this is No Mind deftly
          pulling everything apart.

This is not Advaita
     — this is the mystery
          compelled to move.

And mostly, this is no injunction
     — this is an unending lesson
          in the sole commandment,
     the single obedience,
          of surrender.

– From the unpublished manuscript A Day of Light, by Andrew Colliver
