One-pointed

We are whole or have intimations of what it means to be whole when the entire being – spirit, mind, nerves, flesh, the body itself – are concentrated toward a single end. I feel it when I am writing a poem…..Wholeness does not, of course, necessarily mean being right in a deduction or an action. It does mean not being divided in spirit by conscience, by doubt, by fear. The Japanese call it being “one-pointed.”
