I sit and stare out the window, as light, refracting, dances and glints at me, reminiscent of memories of another time, filling my face with light that glows brightly from within as the presence sits upright and holds tight. Within the temple of my senses, the mystery I contemplate awakens me to the quiet immensity of the antenna of my satellite. I watch, listen, and learn, from within, the presence fills me with such delight, and the awakening keeps my mind clear insight. The outer world’s reflection is alive with sprites, beings in this garden of Gaia’s night. Behold, the sense of alight you feel, as you watch, the silent observer within, for the next part of this rhyme, we may call life’s present to sight. Dreaming imagination, yet steady observance within this soul vehicle, drifting in and out of shades of consciousness whilst grounding to the foundations of the earth’s core vibration. Within and without, such a dance of wonder and joy to conjure and explore. Stay and move with the vibration that’s there, for it’s the gift of this life’s stability and core. Presence is present as a present, multitudes of every giving galore.
Yamaoka Tesshu, as a young student of Zen, visited one master after another. He called upon Dokuon of Shokoku.
Desiring to show his attainment, he said: “The mind, Buddha, and sentient beings, after all, do not exist. The true nature of phenomena is emptiness. There is no relaization, no delusion, no sage, no mediocrity. There is no giving and nothing to be received.”
Dokuon, who was smoking quietly, said nothing. Suddenly he whacked Yamaoka with his bamboo pipe. This made the youth quite angry.
“If nothing exists,” inquired Dokuon, “where did this anger come from?”
Some who ruminate about “conspiracy theorists” could spend at least half of the time that takes to confront themselves with matters at hand instead of being focused on defending their pre-existing worldview.
When you hurt the other, you hurt yourself within the interconnectivity of this cosmos; for you are the other beyond duality. I have learnt a lot, hastiness is a vice, it is harder for myself to form human relationships with chronic pain and other mental afflictions because whilst the world is spinning around, being in pain 24/7 and acting normal can be painful sometimes. When you hurt the other, you hurt yourself.. let go of the weight on your shoulders, all is as it is, forgiveness.
