Wu Hsin - Perceiving What- is

“The body is here to do
What its nature requires.
It has nothing to do with
Anyone in particular.
When all intention is abandoned
What remains is silent awareness
Out of which emanates
Spontaneous living.
The fixation on objects, of which
Thought is one of many, is
The sole impediment to
Perceiving What- is.
Those who realize this are
No longer the body’s accomplice.
A full bowl can have
No further utility.
Only when it is emptied,
Can it be put to use.
The Great Harmony is
Preceded by the emptying.”
