"....And then I feel the sun itself
as it blazes over the hills,
like a million flowers on fire --
clearly I'm not needed,
yet I feel myself turning
into something of inexplicable value...

  -- Mary Oliver


Poetry Chaikhana | Mary Oliver - The Buddha's Last Instruction

Via Negativa

                                                                             139

                                                                Men craving holiness
                                                                        use words
                                                        to create images of their gods,
                                                                      and confuse
                                                                            faith
                                                                            with
                                                                        their pride
                                                              in their own inventions.
                                                                  The Taoist sage
                                                                    shuns words
                                                                            and
                                                                    trusts silence,
                                                                knowung full well
                                                 the Tao is beyond the reach of concepts.

                                                                                                 -- Jos Stabbert.
