According to Buddha

On a trail atop White-Crane’s green cliffs,
My recluse friend’s home in solitude,
Step and courtyard empty; water and rock,
Forest and creek free of axe and fish trap.
Months and years perfect old pines here.
Wind and frost keep bitter bamboo sparse.
Gazing deep, ancestral ways my own again…

 give it time and we wonder why do what we can laugh and we cry
and we sleep in your dust because we’ve seen this all before
culture fades with tears and grace leaving us stunned hollow with shame
we have seen this all seen this all before
many tribes of a modern kind doing brand new work same spirit by side
joining hearts and hands and ancestral twine ancestral twine
slowly it fades
slowly we fade

spirit bird she creaks and groans she knows she has, seen this all before she has, seen this all before

You must leave righteous ways behind, not to speak of unrighteous ways

pondering the subject at hand, Gregory Bateson said that everything is intoxicating, that it’s just a matter of the level….

according to Buddha

To live a pure unselfish life, one must count nothing as one’s own in the midst of abundance.

another simple precept from Buddha is ‘do not steal’.

i gave a woman a dinner…

i woke up…in a very different place…

i took photographs of her…

i stole a glimpse…

…steal.

the first number which cannot be counted with a human’s eight fingers and two thumbs additively.

Karma 

is the sum total of an individual’s actions of body, speech and mind…good, bad and neutral…taken in their current and previous lives.

i abandon my obsession/s

open my luggage, again

i find a gift: the gift i give myself when i drop myths about who i am

and be honest about what i am doing with each moment

all i have is this moment…
