not this

"Words are a limitation; they can’t describe the formless Reality." -- Robert Wolfe, One Essence: The Nondual Clarity of an Ancient Zen Poem 

We think we understand the world.


I don't say this to be tendentious but to invite (perhaps) a different perspective.

Everything you know or understand is changing.

What does that mean?

It means: it's all unformed, and you can't describe any of it, no matter how slow (apparently) is the process.

Where does that leave you?

Part of the moving, shifting, energetic happening of the moment.

No names; no labels; and no dualism -- i.e. this and that.

But of course, that would spell the end of our ego.

And us.
