       I write poetry in a light trance, a deep trance is ineffable (beyond words) and so can't be written.And of that which we cannot speak, we must remain silent.

    dotsEntranced and Awakedots

    I am in a light trance, and you are not.

    J am relaxed, cool, and calm, while you are like ruffled water, anxious to be getting on with it.

    And you are impatient with me in my trance. This is strange because I am no threat to you, but yet my trance troubles you. And you instinctively, and without thinking, close my trance down and bring me down to earth.

    You rejection is so strong and absolute, I must take notice of it, even though I don’t understand it.

    Yet trance is so seductive for me I read about it in, “From Magic to Technology”, by Dennis Wier, and I attend a trance workshop by the Sports’ Psychologist, John Turnbull, at the Australian National University. And I am entranced by writing every day.

    I do a walking meditation when I am waiting for a bus, and I do a walking meditation to put myself to sleep at night. And I meditate by rocking back and forth, forward and back, rocking my soul in the bosom of Abraham, click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4djjrgJl8qI, rocking myself like a baby in the arms of my mother.

    Yet the rejection of trance is so strong, I wonder why. I think because trance means giving up control progressively, giving up control progressively from a light trance to the deepest ineffable trance, a trance beyond words.

    And giving up control means being vulnerable. And the world ‘vulnerable’ comes from the latin ‘vulnans’ meaning wound. And naturally we don’t want to be wounded, we are afraid of the pain and disability of a wound. And the military seek to wound others and avoid being wounded ourselves.

    Unfortunately vulnerability provides the ground for creativity and empathy. So we prefer to conform and sympathise.

    Yet we are entranced, across the world, by the universal Touring machine, held in our hand, our mobile phone. We prefer to be entranced unknowingly, in company with others, like a congregation.

    But the possibility exists to design our own trances, and their effects, safely ourselves. A good place to start is by reading the book, “The Way of Trance”, by Dennis Wier.
