For a more Zen experience, read my poetry series :The Awakening of Silence
"This is it " by James Broughton

Here is a small literary excerpt from the work of James Broughton
This is just so beautifully profound , it has so much to it. Its almost as if its a verse out of the Upanishads , some thing on the likes of Isa Upanishad. To the uninitiated the great esoteric meanings behind these simple word may be clouded by mere useless thoughts. As I once heard some one say "some times i feel like those uninvited thoughts were just there for no reason at all".

The first time i had read a long time ago , i was profoundly enlightened by it. It was almost as if i had a brief spark of a Satori, so to speak of as in the Zen tradition.

Here is a brief Biography of James Broughton (taken from Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Broughton ).

'James Broughton (November 10, 1913 – May 17, 1999) was an American poet, and poetic filmmaker. He was part of the San Francisco Renaissance. He was an early bard of the Radical Faeries.'


Well can you believe that he is a Poet and also a Poetic Filmmaker ?This is the first time i have even heard of such a type of person, a poetic filmmaker!! I have to admit I got a bit excited about James and so i thought of looking his works on the net and to my surprise(pleasant) there was actually Short Film by James titled "This Is It"
