a magic show

“If you arrive at understanding the unborn nature of all that is and know that the mind is a magic show, that there is no object, no phenomenon that has real existence, then wherever you are there is purity, and that is Buddha.”

Zen Master Linji

the unborn nature of all that is

the mind is a magic show

there is no object

no phenomenon has real existence

when caught up in the belief of real objects

the mind goes crazy

a magic show it seems so real

I think that I am

but I am not

these are all nothing more than passing shadows

yes, they feel solid

feelings arise, sadness, anger, frustration, joy

impatience, aggression, compassion and judgement

where is my sovereignty?

where is my True Person?

unborn nature is that which remains

doesn’t come and go

connect with that depth of being

sit

mind sits

images sit

feelings sit

thoughts sit

notions sit

identity sits

names sit

forms sit

all sits with me here
