august moon


Staying very still in the darkness,
I became less and less convinced of the fact that I 
actually existed.

meditation


a practice no one can practice 
abandoning all hope 
free of a doer 
no intention or goal 
accepting and surrendering 
all that arises
going nowhere
for where would one go 
and who is there to go 
giving all to the moment
the moment that cannot be thought 
not knowing, not knowing, not knowing

Beholding



I know that nothing has ever been real
without my beholding it.
All becoming has needed me.
My looking ripens things
and they come toward me, to meet and be met.
