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

I love the first two lines. They remind us be here now. The rest is beautiful enlightenment and insight.
