No Mind, No Attachment

Wu_nothing

The Mind in its dimensions is broad and great, like empty space. It has no sides or limits, it is neither square nor round, neither large nor small. It is neither blue, yellow, red, nor white; it has neither upper nor lower; it is neither long nor short. It knows neither anger nor pleasure, neither right nor wrong, neither good nor evil. It is without beginning and without end. But good friends, do not, hearing me speak of emptiness, become attached to emptiness.

Shin’ichi Hisamatsu, from The Characteristics of Oriental Nothingness

A Meditation Missed

sitting in the car
with time to find nothingness
instead I write this

 

(Reporting live from Baltimore)

 
 

Leave it to me

How should I know
I don’t

But I will find out
I will find out for the both of us
I will find out for the all of us

Until death do I part

I will seek
I will listen
I will meditate
I will know

And I will forget

I know
I will forget

Mostly I will forget
I mostly will forget
I will forget most

Like a tree I’ll drop knowledge
like a forsaken leaf

I will forget
I know

Regress Me To Nothing

If Absence makes the Heart grow
So too, then, does Remorse, Regret

What doesn’t make the Heart grow

Life presumes the Inevitability of Growth

What doesn’t make the Heart grow

Stockpiles
Dividends
Earnings
Data

Cumulus Clouds of Data
Empire Fantasies of Clouds and Clouds of Data

The Heart grows with an unyielding yearning for such Growth

Growth
Inherent Growth

Growth
Universal Growth

Like the eternal expansion of the Infinite Domain of the Void
We inherently blister forever forth in our Growth

A Universe of a forever expanding We

Grow We must

Like Tumors
Debts

And Happiness

Yes, Happiness, too, grows the Heart
As does Love
And Kindness

The expectation of a Kiss

Growth
The Everything of Growth
The Growth of Everything
The Growth of Growth

Everything makes the Heart grow

Everything

Everything makes the Heart grow

Everything

If Everything makes the Heart grow

Then Nothing makes the Heart grow

If Everything makes the Heart grow

Then Nothing makes the Heart grow

Nothing is Everything

Nothing

Nothing makes the Heart grow

Nothing makes the Heart grow

Nothing

The Absence of Everything

Nothing

The Absence of Nothing

Absence

Absence, Alone

Grows the Heart
