Silence and stillness hold all sound and movement. Prior to movement and sound exists the fundamental ground from which all appearances arise. To recognize this, prior to mind, is to know you are that very stillness and silence. There is no doubt, longing or lack when one recognizes home.
No stone unturned,
every pointer has been learned.
Nothing left on the table
and yet… one still feels unable
to see or sense this subtlety:
the absence of the mind-made me,
confusion as ‘some thing’ remains,
the feeling of the ‘person’ pain.
Can you hear simplicity
without birthing multiplicity?
A simple point I share with you
you may or may not try to do.
Either way will lead to THIS
for all there is to very bliss
is what is here, all there is,
making no attempt at analysis.
The opposite of a heroic try
is to bid farewell and wave goodbye
to efforts, paths, ideas and ways,
sit still, adopt a neutral gaze.
Beyond this I will not prescribe
for ‘more’ words are for the hungry mind.
Silence. Stillness. What is here.
Stay with this… Disappear.
