Glowing knowing

"My teachings are easy to understand

and easy to put into practice.

Yet your intellect will never grasp them,

and if you try to practice them, you will fail"

Lao-tzu, Tao Te Ching


"The Self is taintless, beyond space,

unborn, vast, and immovable.

Let a wise aspirant directly realize this insight,

not just reflect on tiresome words."

Brihadâranyaka Upanishad

(nearly 3000 years old)





all shallow words


the timeless fire is burning


All trying






into the silent knowing


that was always glowing
