The clear moon

"Identification is bondage.

Whether it is identification

With thought

With a feeling

Or with an object

It matters not.

Only identification with the formless is

Freedom."

Wu Hsin

 

 

 The clear moon

 

is

 

glowing

 

in silent knowing

 

Formless shadows of stillness

 

whisper in the boundless secret of the night

 

The Heart of awareness is pure love of lightless light

 

 The seeing cannot be seen and so it has always been

 

Being the knowing naturally glowing

 

No effort   No time   No form

 

simply this

 

That

 

is

i find it sad and unsettling that the moon is sullied by space ventures and debris ~ it's hard for me to see the moon as clear anymore.

this poem, though, is pleasing. i appreciate the sentiment.
