Thus

Postby White Lotus » Thu Jan 05, 2017 1:52 pm

what is thus? it transcends even emptiness.

not as it is, not as it isnt,
neither this nor that,
neither emptiness nor form,
neither mind nor no mind,
neither self nor no self,
neither conscious nor unconscious,
neither real nor illusory,
neither attached nor unattached,

empty of emptiness,
empty of form,
blind and yet seeing,
a middle way.

total realisation,
not an achievable goal.
given certainty,
theres not a thing to see
nor unsee.
just so.

1. Mountain is mountain. (as it is). 2. Mountain is not mountain. (empty).3. Mountain is mountain (THIS mountain). 4. Neither mountain nor no mountain. 5. Mountain is no mountain: no mountain is mountain. Words no longer grasp reality, nor do they miss it. :meditate:

The word "thus" does not grasp the reality of existence. Nor does the word "emptiness". Words are far from experience and yet they do not miss it. Words can't grasp reality, but like a finger pointing towards the moon they are helpful, but merely a reflection of things; not real. :anjali:

The mountain is the valley, is the river, is the plain, is the sky. All that is the selfless self. The 0 that is 1. Extinct and yet present. 'Who' is reading this? The mountain is reading this. :meditate:
