Wu Hsin - The silence itself

First, there is Beingness, I-
Then there is Knowing this
Beingness, I Am-
Last, there is the
particularizing of the Knowing
Beingness, I Am this-
Thoroughly observe and
investigate this process.
Then, reverse it.


Whereas the perceived is in constant flux,
That which perceives is immobile.
On which of the two the attention rests
Determines the point of view.
Thinking has value in the
Organizing of the known, but
It is not the tool with which
To approach the Great Mystery.
The Great Mystery can only be
Approached from silence.
It is, in fact,
The silence itself.
