Ism

Ism: 

to insist

on one standpoint 

being present

all the time

(suffering 

  sure to follow). 

Shifting Between 

You are the one 

who manifests 

countless constructs,

shifting between,  

shifting amongst. 

Aware 

Your most deeply held presuppositions

are dark-invisible and function silently

so that you enact them unawares. 

There is a way to bring them to light:

looking out of the corner of your eye, 

glimpse what’s outside the boundary

that is not there. 

One Whole

Even the act

of tearing this 

into little bits

is one whole.

What Comes

What comes to the fore

on its occasion –

a cup of tea,

anger,

a song –

realizes, expresses,

and shapes on all else

just now not disclosed.

A Thing 

A thing 

is what excludes 

all others, 

standing on its own. 

Fundamentally, 

there are no things. 

Mist 

The hazy mist out of which mountains 

of rock and earth, rivers and trees, 

and myriad creatures emerge 

is your true transparence. 

Coming Through 

What comes

comes through

you

shaping it

as it shapes you,

you

and

what comes

thus

not one

not two.

Cloudsky 

You are cloudsky

ungraspable

shaping 

Bubble 

What is outside 

the bubble?
