When real knowledge arrives it is new (ne-w), there is a hyphen (no-w), there is no double You, there is only you, now new.

Lovers say, ‘only you’, songs are written, the echo always returns truthfully.

I say to you all now, there’s only you, the echo returns to me instantly, New, try it, go on, say it to the Universe …. ‘only You’ …. listen to the instantaneous echo ….

God makes this world anew every instant and says to you, for you, there’s only you …. The ‘if not for you’ from the Qur’an.

The “w” is necessary for the mechanics of material creation, for the dilly dally of the lover and beloved, for the drama of the world show that is never boring, always wonderful.

If you feel that there is nothing new under the sun for you, then you are stuck.

This whole world is created just for you, only you.

Only …. just …. got here
…………………….. saw it
…………………….. managed it
…………………….. bought it
…………………….. realised for myself
Only You ….

When I truly say, “there’s only You”, to Love,
There’s only the ‘only me’ that disappears …
In the Echo
