The Way The Cookie Uncrumbles Itself

I put down the cup and turn to my mind.  It is up to my mind to find the truth.  But how?  What grave uncertainty, whenever the mind feels overtaken by itself;  when it, the seeker, is also the obscure country where it must seek and where all its baggage will be nothing to it.  Seek?  Not only that:  create.  It is face to face with something that does not yet exist and that only it can accomplish, and bring into its light.
