    Do understand that you are destined for
enlightenment.  Co-operate with your destiny, 
don't go against it, don't thwart it.  Allow it to
fulfill itself.  All you have to do is to give
attention to the obstacles created by the
foolish mind.

Love for Certain Work

Traveling is as refreshing for some
as staying at home is for others.

Solitude in a mountain place
fills with companionship for this one,
and dead-weariness for that one.

This person loves being in charge
of the workings of a community.
This one loves the ways that heated iron
can be shaped with a hammer.

Each has been given a strong desire
for certain work.  A love  for those motions,
and all motion is love.

The way sticks and pieces of dead grass
and leaves shift about in the wind
and with the direction of rain and
puddle-water on the ground,
those motions are all a following
of the love they've been given.

  (Mathnawi III, 1616-1619)

WAYFARER

 

Installed

in the shadow

of life

 

Between fear

and fancy

never far always near

forever going

round and round

 

Between

ritual and holding views

always near never far

forever going

round and round

 

Yet

 

The wayfarer

cherishing nothing

crosses over

in this

very

now

 

--Bob Knab

To Zen, time and eternity are one.
