No point of view

On the one hand

Master Veal Man


He was given a tall Turkish Hat,
Not knowing how to use it,
Or what it was for,
He asked the advice of friends.
One said 'it’s to hide your donkey's ears'
Another 'it’s so you can walk tall'
A third 'it allows the Kundalini to expand’
A fourth 'it will contain all that hot air'
A wiser one said:
‘Take it off your head,
Turn it upside down,
Empty the ego in the trash can
Then use it as a begging bowl'.

What used to own things is now on bended knee.

Wisdom appears at unscheduled moments and in unlikely places. But wherever it appears it is like gold, like a call to attention for the heart. 

In sickness and in health

You are the prophet
You are the scriptures,
The wisdom and the way.
You are the Buddha, the teachings,
The source from which
Abundant Kindness springs.
You are the carefree life.
You are a nobody, a nothing,
With nowhere to go
Nothing to know.
Your greatest asset your helplessness
Your jewel a supreme carelessness.
Swept here and there
By the tides of the world
Blown hither and thither
By chaos and chance
You find no rest
Yet you are rest itself.
In this understanding
A mighty heart is set free
All things fit
Into this order of abandon.

Knowing anything at all

Even knowledge of the truth is unimportant.
 Going beyond and yet remaining is worth all.

What to do?

A little secret: There is nothing you have to do,  just do what you have to.

And that means you.

Death row, for the mind, is so scary and so liberating.
Luckily none of it is up to us.
