Talisman 25:21
Agony 25:33
I'm dead, because I do not have the desire. I do not have the desire because I think I own. I think I own because I'm not trying to give. Trying to give, we see that we have nothing. Seeing that we have nothing, we try to give ourselves. Trying to give ourselves, we see that we are nothing. Seeing that we are nothing, we want to become. Desiring to become, we live. René Daumal (May 1943) Je suis mort, parce que je n’ai pas le désir. Je n’ai pas le désir parce que je crois posséder. Je crois posséder parce que je n’essaye pas de donner. Essayant de donner, on voit qu’on n’a rien. Voyant qu’on n’a rien, on essaye de se donner. Essayant de se donner, on voit qu’on n’est rien. Voyant qu’on n'est rien, on désire devenir. Désirant devenir, on vit. René Daumal (Mai 1943)
Don’t be distressed if I am left unburied If the priest denies me the final rites. Carry the remains to the woods and leave it there. It comforts me to think that the beasts would feast At my bones, my flesh, this strong red heart, They would feel no need to screen my thoughts. ‘Their bellies filled, they’ll clean their paws And their sinless eyes will gleam with a truth That you, my friends, dare never express: “She always said what she had to say, And for all her life had no regrets”. Excerpt from Fahmida Riaz's poem "Condolence Resolution" (1946-2018)
