We don't see things
as they are, we see them as we are.
-- Anais Nin
Coca-Cola Yogi by Jacques De Schryver
This was pure serendipity !
I asked him to pause in
front of this shop window. And there it was. I had
not realized at first the colors were the same on his
head and on the window.
DEBRA A ORF on HarshaSatsangh
not two not you
yet me with you
and those folks too.
one two three
one counter, one counting
in one world standing
as the logic streams in circles
as one looks for one's streamsource
not one, not none
empty and limitless
the tears another sheds are in one's own eyes
and all that is left is a question,
'how may i help you?'
for without an i, what else
can possibly matter?

JIZIBODHI on GuruRatings
The Way does not intend to be. The Way is all there is to be.
The Way does not include all things, they Way is all things.
There are no paths to the Way.
All paths lead to the path.
There is a difference between path and way.
Some follow the path, and others follow the Way.
There can be no difference between those who follow and
those who lead.
There are no leaders, nor followers.
There are no prophets, whose words point to it.
There are no scriptures that have been written.
There is only the Way.
Again and again, those who come to revise,
Point to the Way.
The Way is there, before the Paths.
Even a dog can follow the Way.
But those more intelligent do not think thusly.
There is winter, then spring and summer.
Autumn precludes all of these, yet returns, again and again.
This is like the Way.
The Way is magnanimously generous, yet lacks nothing.
The Way is frugal and pristine.
The Way is clear, like water flowing in a cold mountain stream.
The Way is present and in all aspects.
None are separate.
They are confused about the Way.
As truth seekers are generally confused.
This confusion is the Way before
And the Way after the Way.
Without it, Old man cannot weep,
And women would squander themselves.
The Way is very much,
And very little.
The Way pushes,
The Way pulls.
The Way is pain.
To know the Way, even Sages do not say.
Only the wise know the Way,
And do not speak.
Those not speaking often think about the Way;
But speak and spoil it.
Those speaking are often not thinking about the Way,
And are walking masters.
Some are wiser than others.
The Way cannot be shown to anyone-
Or in words.
You cannot think of it.
You cannot hear it.
You cannot even see it.
The Way is the reason that you are
The Way has no name besides
The Way concludes
And the Way begins.
Some have said otherwise-
Who are they?
My sweet dog
Knows more than I do.

a very fine dog
she is a very fine dog
she nevers judges
she is true to her nature
she is ever one with being
she never questions love
she should not be barking outside the window at three am!
one can only smile at this
she is so sweet
she defends the place
she never bites
yet she keeps the coyotes away!
true to her nature
she is a natural buddha
there is only god
it is the same with everything
