In reality, there is analogy between moments, but there is no repetition.

A continuance of dialogues with a sage who did not see himself as a sage, but others did; from Brian K. Wilcox. "Meetings with an Anonymous Sage."

* * *

Sir, some say the journey is long, some say no journey at all. Which?

some say long journey or not at all,
I say, where you are you begin
again and again

now is not now or then
admits no 'when?'

here is not here or there
admits no 'where?'

relax, breathe
in just this always-fresh moment

here, the world passes by
without touching your skin

* * *

Once, in response to a question about what time in meditation and outside meditation share in common, the sage closed his eyes. After taking a few deep breaths, he, smiling, said, breath by breath ... breath by breath ... breath by breath.
