effortless

Searching for names we forget the nameless.
Seeking form we forget the formless.
Listening for divine melody we forget silence.
Chasing rainbows we forget light.
Seeking ourselves we forget our effortless presence.

great peace

Rest in natural great peace
This exhausted mind
Beaten helpless by karma and neurotic thought,
Like the relentless fury of the pounding waves
In the infinite ocean of samsara.
Rest in natural great peace.

knocking

Sometime, somewhere you need to take something to be the truth. But if you cling to it too strongly, then even when the truth comes in person and knocks on your door, you will not open it.

radiance

laughter

Since everything is but an apparition,
Perfect in being what it is,
Having nothing to do with good or bad,
Acceptance or rejection
You might as well burst out laughing!
