The fire of existence

 

"Once you know that

You are not the mind,

What difference does it make whether

The mind is quiet or unsteady?

Only those identified with mind are

Concerned about its activities.

Realization is the realization of 

That which is already prior to mind."

Wu Hsin

 

 

The pure beauty of existence

 

sings beyond all things

 

The fire of aliveness

 

is

 

constantly burning

 

Attention is curiously turning

 

away from the nagging noise of mind

 

finding the timeless freedom behind

 

Being the knowing silently glowing

 

There is no place for any tale

 

here all words fail

 

silence sings

 

beyond all things

 

Timeless beauty blooms

Hello Nils,
None so pure as silence, the essence of a tranquil existence in this splendid poem of yours. A wise and worthy composition. Very well done indeed.

Kind regards, Tony.
