Wonder in a silent bolt of thunder


"There is no moon in the pond;

It only appears to be.

Failing to discriminate between reality and appearance

Gives rise to a way of living

As if there were an entity and 

As if there were a world separate from it."

Wu Hsin


"The present is not a fleeting moment: it is the only eternity.

In time "lies" samsara: in the Present "lies" nirvana."

Wei Wu Wei




Clear and Here


simply being


without me-ing


 A silent bolt of thunder


The One song is singing


Empty of things


full of wonder


wild beauty blooms


The dawn of wisdom breaks the night


Ignorance dissolves in light


Heart is glowing


in silent knowing
