through the looking glass…
are we ever in a ‘jam’
…how fast the ‘nunc’ unfolds
each breath a mere reflection –
however enjoyed the present gift.

‘…a pun on Latin grammar,…:”iam” means “now” in Latin, but only when speaking in the past or future. In the present the word for now is “nunc.” So, “jam [iam] tomorrow, jam yesterday, but never jam today,” is actually a good mnemonic for the rule. (Note that in Latin, “i” and “j” were not distinct characters; “iam” and “jam” are the same).
Karma is cause and effect. Dharma means cosmic law.
Yoga is enlightenment through movement and Tao is the
practice of acting in harmony with the fundamental essence
of everything you encounter.
Note: My haiku (or other forms) are my interpretations
or of how I might put the inspirational sentence
into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.
