N__ing & K___ng

If one considers k___ing a process
 toward definition and completion,
 k___ing self directly
 and in the specious present
 is an illusion.

If there is any genuine import
 to being self-aware,

 it is distinct from k___ing self.

In eastern religion and philosophy,
which are essentially the same,
the futility of any final k___ing self
is a commonplace,
so much so that in the West
it is easily overlooked
as the keystone of all that follows.

The eye cannot see it self.

If k___ing is seeing,
one can never k___ self.

What is true of k___ing
is true of n__ing.
