no guru

 

 

there is no guru

anywhere ever

 

not you not me not he not she

 

hard words to hear

if you pretend

to hear them

with self-ish ears

 

but there is no self

anywhere ever

 

only clear ears

and these words

dancing

through them

the alone

 

 

the alone

is never

lonely

 

the alone

is singularly

singular

 

the alone

appearing as

everything

never appears

as anything

 

the alone

is what any

thing is

 

you are

nothing

other than

this only

and singularly

and un-lonely

alone

 

~ ~ ~

 

prayer is

 

 

prayer is

to whom when

there’s nothing

other than

this

 

this is

to whom when

there’s no way

other than

prayer

 

prayer is

not to any god

who or where

would a god

be

 

prayer is

very plainly

regardless of god

 

very causelessly

and ceaselessly

so

mountain dust

 

 

dust seems low

only to self

 

dust is not low

 

a mountain peak seems high

only to self

 

a mountain peak is not high

 

a body

turns to dust

and the mind

might dwell on dust

and dust

might join

a mountain peak

 

all is presently well

 

only unreal self

would seek a peak

or avoid some dust

 

all is presently well

 

~ ~ ~

 

 no enlightenment

 

 

there’s no

enlightenment

 

why

 

there’s no one

to get or be

enlightened

 

like master

seung sahn

says

wanting it is

a big mistake

 

tear to pieces

or unravel

your

big mistake

 

find out

 

who am i

what am i

 

~ ~ ~

 

it’s all bulls-eye

 

don’t miss

 

~ ~ ~

 

let

 

 

don’t

be

only

an echo

 

be

the voicing

you already are

 

don’t be ever

a mere impression

 

be

the hand

strumming

the strings

 

let i

speak

deeply its

present end

 

let every you

be swallowed by

never
