Everyday tea, Always comfortable

Always comfortable


A leaf being drawn
in a tea cup.
It appears, disappears and
disappears, appears again.

It flows down through the neck and
spreads through the whole body,


deeply and quietly.


Thoughts arising,
feelings arising.

Thoughts falling away,
feelings falling away.

Empty of all thoughts.
Empty of all feelings.

is solved.

Doing the easy thing

Bright and brightly.

Clear, limpid green water drops
blooming in the air.

Tree branches having a refreshing stretch.

Thoughts being emptied.
A breath being taken in and out.

It is
  in front of us.  

Where there is no clash,
where there is no flowing against,
where there is serene harmoniousness.

Bright meeting with all things,
bright behaviour,
being untinged.

The goodness of our heart.

Walking the right path, Magi

Shining with

Magi: The labyrinth of magic


Walking the right path

"What am I?"

The collapse of colossal castle buildings.  
A word out in the middle of it.
A sorrowful cry of a little boy.

A question
that cannot be answered by any one,
by any almighty power.

A journey to find the answer begins
with a mystical boy of strong gentleness. 

The way to the answer
reveals itself only when
we lay down ourselves in humility
and total honesty without any bit of lying.

Let us walk the way.

The right way
I and I become friends,
you and I become friends,
we all become friends together.


Release the tensions in our mind and body 
and just leave everything to it.

The key
is already in our hands.

Making no distinction

Among stones,
among the green leaves where winter is still staying,

cute yellow glow sprinkled.

Mellow pink light
in bloom
next to the road of bright afternoon sunshine.

A sweet smell.
Where spring passes by.

I know:
Going is not going,
coming is not coming.

There is no good and bad.

It is just 
clothes being worn and taken off.
