The monkey is reaching
For the moon in the water.
Until death overtakes him
He'll never give up.
If he'd let go the branch and
Disappear in the deep pool,
The whole world would shine
With dazzling pureness.

"It is truth that frees, not your effort to be free." J Krishnamurti
"By listening repeatedly to.. discourse...on (truth), the path to first hand knowledge of what has been heard gradually opens out. It as when water uninterruptedly dripping on a stone finally makes a hole in it, and a flood may suddenly surge through..."

Know its use: a boundless perfect sphere.

Much to the chagrin of my teacher and friend, I have decided to post it here in it's entirety. I point to it as a pure demonstration of clarity and "reasonableness".
To this one, the perfume is undeniable.
It is a demonstration of an attempt to meet in the moment as opposed to speaking of what "we know" from the illusory past.
"It is the question that triggers the answer. If there is no urgency and intensity in the question, the answer does not come.... I am not listening to questions, I am listening to questions and I am listening to the answers." Francis Lucille
