A STILL CUP
To make love,
For the divine alchemy to work,
The Pitcher needs a still cup.

Translations by Daniel Ladinsky posted to Along The Way
Let go of your worries
and be completely clear-hearted,
like the face of a mirror
that contains no images.
When we speak about natural creativity
and its expression, we are not
talking about something separate from our own mind and experience. All
that we call existent phenomena is experienced by mind. This
awareness is primordial and omnipresentis there ever a time when we
dont experience? Experience can be dull, we may be asleep, we may be
ignorant or distracted, but we are always awake in one way or
anotherexperiencing our thoughts, our emotions, our state of mind,
experiencing our dullness, our distractedness or joy. There has never
been a time when we have been inanimate, like a rock. This creative
energy never leaves us, whether we turn toward ignorance or
enlightenment; whether our intelligence is obstructed or not; whether we
operate from the ego or from a bigger state of mind. It remains in its
own naked state at all times.
- Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, "Free Expression"
?"True faith is that quality of consciousness that allows us to exist without blinders, without beliefs, without barriers to life of any kind." - Adyashanti posted by Tom Thompson to Facebook
as flowing waters disappear into
we lose all track of their passage.
every heart is its own Buddha;
to become a saint, do nothing.
enlightenment: the world is a mote of dust,
you can look right through heaven's round mirror
slip past all form, all shape
and sit side by side with nothing, save Tao.
- Shi Shu
