Awareness watching awareness

Awareness watching awareness
Watching awareness watching awareness
Awareness watching awareness watching awareness

Blind alleys and
Conceptual cul de sacs
Machinations of foolish minds
Linguistic regression of the dumbest kind.

Beware the fool
In expert's clothing.

When you meet Ramana

For years Buddha's people have been reminded that if they meet the Buddha on the road they must cut him down. Isn't it about time Ramana's people were told something similar?

Today is not today

Yesterday is not yesterday
Tomorrow is not tomorrow
Nor for that matter is
Today today

Machinations of the mind

Making patterns,
not making patterns,
both are machinations of the mind.

Remember to switch it off,
when you are finished.

not two

not two but
or three,
or even more,
it's not that cut and dry.

The single source shines clearly in the light,
The branching streams flow out in darkness,

Fire heats, wind moves, water wets, earth stands firm,
While things have an appropriate time,
They all return to the one.

Ancient Hill

The ancient hill beckons, silently.
Throngs of people arrive every feast day and on earliest excuse days,
They circumambulate, and, when they depart, their rubbish abounds.
The ancient hill beckons, still.
