the temple bell stops
but the sound keeps coming
out of the flowers

















the shadow of the bamboo sweeps over the stairs
but the dust does not move

the disc of the moon passes through the water of the lake
leaving no trace


















Underneath the superficial self, which pays attention to this and that, there is another self more really us than I.
And the more you become aware of the unknown self -- if you become aware of it -- the more you realize that it is inseparably connected with everything else that is.
You are a function of this total galaxy, bounded by the Milky Way, and this galaxy is a function of all other galaxies.
You are that vast thing that you see far, far off with great telescopes.
You look and look, and one day you are going to wake up and say, "Why, that's me!"
And in knowing that, you know that you never die.
You are the eternal thing that comes and goes that appears -- now as John Jones, now as Mary Smith, now as Betty Brown -- and so it goes, forever and ever and ever.


-Alan Watts

I acknowledge the privilege of being alive in a human body at this moment, endowed with senses, memories, emotions, thoughts, and the space of mind in its wisdom aspect.
It is the prayer of my innermost being to realize my supreme identity in the liberated play of consciousness, the Vast Expanse. Now is the moment, Here is the place of Liberation.

Witness the contents of mind, the visions and sounds, the thoughts, as clouds passing through the vast expanse - the sky-like nature of mind. The rootedness of Being is in emptiness, clarity and awareness: unborn, unspoilt, stainlessly pure.

The infinite vibratory levels, the dimensions of interconnectedness are without end. There is nothing independent. All beings and things are residents in your awareness.

I subject my awareness to the perfection of being, the perfection of wisdom and perfection of love, all of these being co-present in the Vast Expanse. I share this panorama of Being and appreciate all I can share it with...the seamless interweaving of consciousness with each moment.

Create perfection wherever you go with your awareness. That is why this teaching is admired by artists--they sense the correctness of the response to life as creative. Life is infinite creative play. Enjoyment and participation in this creative play is the artists profound joy. We co-author every moment with universal creativity.

To bare our souls is all we ask, to give all we have to life and the beings surrounding us. Here the nature spirits are intense and we appreciate them, make offerings to them--these nature spirits who call us here--sealing our fate with each other, celebrating our love.

I am an intersecting kaleidoscope of Being in a rainbow refractive wave pattern: a corpuscle of light on the ocean...the transparency of my body with the rocks...sometimes the only way to summarize my feelings is to draw--to collapse the frenzy in my limbs enough to make a mark out of profound appreciation for my existence.

Share your presence with others, no boundaries, completely openly lovingly. Love is what makes us alive, that is why we feel so alive when we love. Service is being available to love. Life is the combustion of love. That we love ourselves here, that is the true magnificence in the mountains of being. We are constantly drawing the line between love and not love--enter into the Non-duality Zone, and all judgements dissolve in the Vast Expanse.

It's as though we are co-conspirators of consciousness--everyone, everywhere, everywhen, mixing up our openable minds. It's as though we could gather clouds in the sky and people into our lives. Like an eruption of consciousness, we discover the most important force is love. Experience yourself as the Source and appreciate every moment as perfection. Sunrise--Sunset. Thank you, Thank you, Creator, profound unstoppable connectedness of all beings, pattern to everything, most radical no-thing, the Vast Expanse.

Alex Grey
August 22,1994




May I be the doctor and
the medicine
And may I be the nurse
For all sick beings in the
world
Until everyone is healed.
May a rain of food and
drink descend
To clear away the pain
of thirst and hunger
And during the aeon of
famine
May I myself change into
food and drink.

May I become an
inexhaustible treasure
For those who are poor
and destitute;
May I turn into all things
they could need
And may these be placed
close beside them.

Shantideva, A GUIDE TO THE BODDHISATTVA'S WAY OF LIFE

Meditation teacher Larry Rosenberg went to Korea to practice with Zen Master Seung Sahn. During the journey, he undertook a pilgrimage to other teachers and temples, and while traveling on a remote road, he came across a particularly elegant Buddhist shrine at the base of a mountain. Next to it was a sign - "Way To The Most Beautiful Buddha In All Of Korea," with an arrow pointing to the thousand-step path up the mountain.

Larry decided to climb, hiking up the steps until he reached the top. The view was breathtaking in every direction. The simple Zen stone pagoda matched the elegance of the one below. But in place of the Buddha on the altar there was nothing, only empty space and the gorgeous green-hilled vista beyond. When he went closer, at the empty altar was a plaque that read, "If you can't see the Buddha here, you had better go down and practice some more."

A monk asked Ummon: `What is Buddha?' Ummon answered him: `Dried dung.'

poor man

skillful beyond all other animals

by being able to think in time

and knowing the future

he dies before he is dead

he shrinks from the shark's teeth before they bite him

he dreads the alien germ long long before its banquet begins





- Alan Watts

Aeons of awareness limited to a feeble existence
Restrictively implanted in the vessel called man
Genetically bound to a covert system
Never to discover more than is allowed
There is no truth
Only a perspective
The locked physical senses were designed to misinform
We must transcend the illusion
Breaking the barricade of infinite cognizance
A glimpse scurries through the peripheries of allowance
There is a doorway in the suppression of the mind
A portal to the agenda of the gods
Unveiling the knowledge of the celestial ones
Unrestricted permeation of the assimilated life by the fathers of man
Creationism in its sickest form
Specifically manufactured in ignorance
Gaze upon the blueprints of the absolute
The human mind denied a greater understanding of inter-dimensionalism
Through a vast control of molecular vibration never intended to be stumbled upon
Reduced to third dimensional vessels of possession
The third eye clenched shut by demonic grasp
We are servants to an opaque order

Nansen saw the monks of the eastern and western halls fighting over a cat. He seized the cat and told the monks: `If any of you say a good word, you can save the cat.'
No one answered. So Nansen boldly cut the cat in two pieces.
That evening Joshu returned and Nansen told him about this. Joshu removed his sandals and, placing them on his head, walked out.
Nansen said: `If you had been there, you could have saved the cat.'

two monks were arguing about a flag.

one said: 'the flag is moving'.

the other said: 'the wind is moving'.

the sixth patriach happened to be passing by. he told them: 'not the wind, not the flag; mind is moving'.

a guy walks into a bar, and there is a monk sitting on a barstool with an empty glass who is drunk as piss. so the guy tells the bartender "gimme a glass of whatever he just drank". the bartender hands him an empty glass. he asks the monk "i dont get it, what did you have?" the monk says "im a monk. we get blown out of our minds on nothing."

In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself.
